Three tips when buying a TV

We're assuming you're buying a TV to get a bit of a cinematic feel at home. If you’re just going to watch the news, it doesn't matter much.

  • Naturally, it's important that it will fit on your TV stand or wherever you're planning to put it. Thinking it would be nice to mount it on a wall, but don't know how? Check out this guide we've found for you.

  • Furthermore, there are dozens of other more or less scientific studies that will tell you how big a TV you should have in relation to how far away you'll be sitting from it. A simple rule of thumb is to have a distance of half a metre per ten inches, so if your sofa is about three metres away, you should have a 65-inch TV.

  • Finally, it rarely hurts to go up a size if you have space for it and you find the larger size to be affordable.

Whether you’re playing PS5, PC or Xbox, gaming is the new hot topic on the TV market. If you're running a PC on your TV, you should keep an eye out for Freesync or G-Sync support, depending on your graphics card. Naturally, both PC and console players should strive for refresh rates of 120 hertz and the potential of automatic VRR (variable refresh rate) adaptation.

We hate to say it, but the sound on new TVs is terrible. A TV's speaker will provide sound, but it is generally not very good, nor particularly powerful.

Add a sensible soundbar to your TV budget if you’ll be watching more than the news, because we're not kidding when we say half the experience is in the sound. Browse our soundbar category and see if you find one that suits you.

FAQ

If you have a relatively old TV you can actually buy almost anything because the technology has developed enormously over recent years, and even cheap TVs are very good now. At the same time you obviously want the best value for your money, so it’s a good idea to read our expert tests to get a better idea of what’s gone on since you last bought a TV.

One old rule of thumb is 10 inches per metre you have between you and the TV. So in other words you need a 30 inch TV if you're 3 m away and so on. Today large TVs are relatively common and cheap so you can easily break that rule. At the same time, you need to take into account the room where the TV will be, your budget and your own personal preference.

TVs – and screens of all types – are measured in inches (1 inch = 2.54 cm), diagonally across the screen.
