Only 2 Steps To Choose The Right TV For Me
With 100's of TVs available online to 10's of TVs on display in stores, choosing a TV is a non-trivial task. And the promotion of many features I don't need - such as 8K TVs - adds more confusion & additional time needed to decide.
To make this as uncomplicated & effortless as possible for me, EnjoyMyTV has used these 10 'Must Have' TV attributes to filter 100's of TVs down to 12-to-16 selected TVs in each TV size. Then EnjoyMyTV's ratings picks 3 sets for me to choose from.
Best Premium - best picture quality - great price score
Best Value - great picture quality - good price score
Best Budget - good picture quality - low price score
To guide me in choosing the right TV for me between the 3 Best TVs in each size, I use EnjoyMyTV's 2 step process.
Step 1: Match Viewing Distance & TV Size To Gain A THX Cinematic Viewing Experience Daily
Why is TV screen size so important? Because with the right size TV I gain a THX cinematic viewing experience daily.
The average TV viewer has
a 9' viewing distance to a 65" TV
which is NOT a
THX cinematic viewing experience
To gain the experience,
move closer and/or get a larger TV
Average TV Viewer
Home Cinema Viewer
9' Viewing Distance to 65" TV
move 2' closer:
7' Viewing Distance to 65" TV
move 1' closer & go larger
8' Viewing Distance to 75" TV
or just go larger
9' Viewing Distance to 85" TV
Having a THX cinematic viewing experience draws me into the scene, immersing us in the entertainment
Measure My Viewing Distance To Determine Right TV Screen Size For Me
I measure my viewing distance from the TV screen to where my eyes are when I sit. I round that distance to the nearest foot. Then I use the chart below to choose the right TV screen size for me.
Expert tip: I can sit up to 6" closer and 5" further away from the rounded viewing distance.
With the right TV size for me in hand, I can now choose from the (3) Best TVs for me!
Step 2: Choose The Right TV For Me From The Best Budget, Best Value or Best Premium TVs
After choosing the right size TV, the final 2 elements in choosing my TV comes down to the Picture Quality & Price tradeoff.
Picture Quality: TVs have a wide range of picture quality (PQ). A higher quality TV gains me accurate colors & contrast
Price: the current price of each TV set on Amazon
To really help me with sorting out the picture quality & price tradeoff, 2 #s are used to make up each TVs EnjoyMyTV Rating.
3 picture quality groups: 7 - Budget, 8 - Value & 9 - Premium (left digit)
picture quality divided by price and pro-rata ranked the results (right digit)
Then the EnjoyMyTV Rating is used to pick the Best Budget, Best Value & Best Premium TV for each Product Quality Group.
Having resolved the right TV size for me, I can now choose the Best Budget, Value or Premium TV set that is right for me.
