TV sizing

What size TV should I buy?

This is the most common question we get asked when customers are trying to purchase a TV. There is no point in buying a big TV if you are going to be inches from the screen as that will be uncomfortable and disappointing in terms of picture quality.

Don’t be tempted into buying a TV too big for your home. To help make things easier we have included a helpful chart to determine which TV size is right for you, all you need to do is measure the distance between where you normally sit and the screen.

Regardless of how big you want to go, the features you may want to have, or how large your budget is, we have the perfect TV for you.
