29 Jan Ultimate Home Theater System HDTV Buying Guide
Putting together a home theater system is one of the most exciting things you can do to infuse your home with new life. But the extensive array of options out there can make your decision-making process extraordinarily complicated. That’s why the home entertainment experts at eInteractive have put together this buying guide to help you pick the HDTV that’s right for your style, space, and budget.
Choosing Between Plasma and LCD
One of the most common questions regarding home theater systems relates to the decision between LCD and Plasma. There is no right answer here, and you’ll find that there are distinct advantages to choosing either one. Plasma televisions have a reputation for portraying the smoothest motion, which is perfect for sports fans and video game lovers. They are also particularly adept at showcasing the deepest blacks, which makes for pleasant viewing experiences in dark rooms.
On the other hand, LCDs are typically much thinner and lighter, making them the obvious choice when space efficiency is a priority. LCDs are also more energy-efficient than their Plasma counterparts, giving them a leg up for the environmentally-conscious consumer. If you engage in lots of daytime viewing, then you’ll want to select the characteristically brighter LCD screens for your home entertainment system.
Picking Your TV Size
Once you’ve determined the type of TV you want to put in your home theater, you’ll want to pick the size that’s right for you. Here are a couple of super-helpful tips:
- Bigger is not necessarily better—you should make your choice according to your lifestyle, your budget, and the distance you typically sit away from your TV.
- With just a little bit of easy math, you can figure out the recommended size of your TV screen. Simply divide your viewing distance (in inches) by 3 to find the minimum recommended dimensions; or divide it by 1.5 to find the maximum recommended dimensions.
