The best TV for watching TV

You watch TV shows, such as the news, and watch a DVD or a Blu-ray at times. If this applies to you, your TV should have good image quality, but not all kinds of extras that you have to pay for. To help you with your decision, I outlined 4 recommendations.

Choose your ideal size

Most televisions are available in various sizes. These sizes are indicated in inches. To determine the best size for your room, you should measure the distance between your viewing position and your current TV in centimeters. Multiply this number with 0.2 to find your ideal size in inches. If your viewing distance is, let's say, 2 meters, a 40-inch TV is the best choice. Do note that this is simply a guideline. You can opt for a television that's a couple inches bigger or smaller without experiencing any problems.

In terms of image quality, the Philips PUS6703 is similar to the LG UJ630V, but it slightly more expensive since this television is equipped with the Ambilight technique. Small lights in the edges light the wall behind the TV in the colors of the image. This looks nice and has a calming effect on your eyes when you're looking into the dark. Like this idea?
