For most people, screen sizes are important. Wanting to create a home theatre and get the most out of the viewing experience makes a heap of sense. Screen sizes are in inches and relate to the measurement from one corner diagonally to another. While 65-inch TVs are the most popular size in Australia, stand beside a 75 or 77-inch model and be awe-inspired by the grandiosity on show. You’ll be surprised just how far your dollar will go in the size stakes.
Which screen size is best for me?
Given the big tech and great picture quality in TVs today, you don’t have to sit as far away from them as you once did.
One of our biggest brands, Samsung, has an equation it likes to use to help people work out the best screen size for them.
Work out how far you sit from your TV in inches and divide it by 2. The answer should give you a good starting point to the size of TV that may suit.
