HDTVs Size Guide

Submitted by on October 1, 2011 – 12:22 amNo Comment | 4,953 views

HDTV Size Guide
HDTVs come in various sizes and a good size guide is required to ensure you pick the right set for your space.

It is imperative that you do some measuring of your home or office or place where you’re going to install the unit. Not all HDTVs are the same as some consist of different technologies. This makes some sets heavier than others and some limitations such as with Plasma HDTVs which can’t be as large as the others. Knowing the dimensions of your display area will make installation and viewing easier.

There are two things here that needs covering. The size of present HDTVs and comparisons to your old TV set as the HDTV screens are more horizontal which means you’ll need to calculate the ratio so that you get the same image area without losing the overall picture.

HDTV Size Compare

Difference in Viewing Size Between Old and HDTV Television

Sizes of the HDTV screens can be 15 inches diagonal and well over 50 inches. You should gauge the distance from where you’ll be sitting to where the screen will be placed. Divide by 2 and that should give you the size you’ll need for right viewing. For smaller rooms don’t get an HDTV that is over 32 inches. Other than that, just take a measurement of where the distance is to where the set will be and then when going to the store, measure out that distance and then see if it’s easier to view or not.

Since the sizes of the HDTV screens vary we use a simple calculation to figure out the size you should get based on distance. A 30 inch screen is good if the maximum distance is 6.25ft with a minimum distance of 3.75ft. This is for computing and perhaps small bedroom. A kitchen too. For 4.25ft to 7ft you’ll be okay with 34 inch screens. 4.60ft to 7.71ft a 37 inch screen is good. The ratio is the same all the way up to the 70 inch screens. A 70 inch HDTV screen is going to weight a good bit and will need to be secured. These should be good guidelines and a rule of thumb is the 6% rule for screen area like your regular TV. If you want the same area to capture the full picture then apply this rule if you want an HDTV the same height as your old TV. Take that measurement and multiply it by 1.22.

So to get the list of screen sizes understand that you’ll see 18 inch and less screens on up to 70 plus inch screen sizes. Once you’ve gone to the store itself, applied your measurements you’ll get a better idea of the sizes but don’t be fooled because when you’re in a room of big screen TVs you might find.
