The decision to buy a flat screen TV is not to be taken lightly.  In order to ensure the correct TV is purchased to meet the user’s specific needs, several questions must be answered.  Research must be done and a budget must be set.  There are three main steps in identifying the perfect television for anyone, and no two people will have exactly the same answers or reasons, even when they purchase the same set.


The first step involves the identification of the user’s needs.  There are many factors to be considered.  How large is the space the television will be used in?  For a smaller room a sixty-five inch set may be too large, conversely, for a living or family room it may be the perfect size.  What is the primary function of the television to be?  Will it be used to stream movies, watch sports, play games or, as is usually the case, a combination?  For games, movies and other Internet or digital media, an Internet ready TV will make these functions simpler to access.  For watching DVDs or Blu Rays, HDMI connections are important.  If home movies or pictures are to be shared, then an SD card slot or USB inputs make life easier.  For viewing movies from your PC, ad PC jack is required.  On the other hand, if the television will primarily be used for cable, broadcast or sports viewing, some of these inputs can be cut back or eliminated.  The lifestyle of the user is also important when deciding on an ideal TV.  If much entertaining is done in the home, or family movie night is a prime way to spend time with your loved ones, the picture quality and sound capabilities of the TV become more important.  For gamers and streamers the frame refresh rate must be considered.  Once the needs are determined, it is time to determine the budget allowed for the purchase.  The amount of money available will often be the determining factor in the selection of the perfect television.  Fortunately, there are many online TV deals available so it is fairly easy to ensure the lowest possible price is being paid for the selected unit.


Second, a decision needs to be made on the type of big screen TV desired.  There are plasma, LED, LCD and LEC/LCD televisions on the market and all are flat screen televisions.  Finding and reading flat screen TV reviews is an excellent place to start this research phase.  There are loads of sites on the Internet and many electronic stores available to help guide you to the proper choice of television.  Read everything, visit the manufacturer’s website, stroll through the electronics departments and ask lots of questions.  Keep asking the questions until you are sure you understand the answers.  If you want to get the best TV deals out there, you have to know what you want and why it’s important.


Finally, the place of purchase must be selected.  The reviews you have read should give you an idea of what to expect from a vendor.  Increasingly, televisions are being purchased online.  There are plasma TV deals, LED TV deals, and LCD TV deals waiting for you, but you have to find them.  Cheap televisions are especially attractive to people with a low budget, however, cheap does not have to mean garbage.  By looking for TV deals online and comparing them to local TV deals, it is possible to find and purchase the best TV deals anywhere.  An HDTV, when purchased properly, will last a very long time, so before you pay out the cash, make sure it is the perfect TV for you.  Happy Hunting!
