Updated on May 17, 2014

Shopping for a new television can be hard or easy . First you need to know what is your budget range ,then the options you need

First step bring a paper. Then write tv size you are looking for and its location .put 2 sizes as an option for the same location .

Second write how many tv you need in your home you will need that for later decision

The search process

you need to make a search in size and brand name. write your needs in paper and open site like amazon for example then you need to make 2 or 3 comparison according to your budget
you need to fix your tv size first as start then compare
1- brand vs brand in price in the same size and category
2- category vs category if you confused between 2 or 3 for example

4K Ultra HD vs plasma vs oled in price range in the same size

3- size vs size if you really need some brand and category for special option
4 - for those who care about decoration and lovely style just choose your budget range and select what you like more and feel comfort with in the search bu budget

point from 1 to 3 is comparison in specification and you can go further deep and make it more specified if you need a certain category . pint no 4 is matching the tv with your furniture if you have expensive furniture and you need to match every thing together .

Understanding the Different Types of TVs

The main rule to go with is to select which category to start search and comparing LED LCD vs. plasma vs OLED

LCD and LED are the two most common types of televisions. The technology behind them is actually very similar. The only real difference is the way their screens are illuminated.Plasma TVs deliver the most realistic possible color without the blurring or ghosting that can sometimes be seen on LCD TVs during fast-moving scenes.OLED HDTVs can be thinner and lighter than even the thinnest of LED or LCD TVs. OLED HDTVs are self illuminating. they do not need these extra lights.

Bigger really is better

A size of at least 32 inches for a bedroom TV and at least 50 inches for a living room or main TV -- and 60 inches or larger is best but all depend on 2 things the budget you have and free area according to your first design that you need to respect to get every thing match together

The hardest point

the searching between brands and prices but if you decide the category and the size as you start from first point in the search in the shopping site like amazon select the price range size and category you can change your search results by making different comparison

finally hoping you to find the set you like and feel comfort with

Making Sure You Have Enough Inputs

you watch movies on a Blu-ray player, play games on a video game console, or watch TV using a high-definition DVR? You'll want to make sure when buying a TV that it has a least one HDMI input--the current standard for high-definition video--for each device you plan to connect. You can always buy an HDMI switcher or home theater receiver later if you need more inputs, but this route is generally expensive and less convenient than simply starting out with as many as you need.
