HDTV Buying Guide for Football Fans
Watching the games on Sunday just wouldn’t be the same without the newest and biggest HDTV in your living room. Don’t have one you say? Whats that?…You just watched Tom Brady’s ACL take a season ending hit by Bernard Pollard on your 19” Tube TV? Well I think its time for an upgrade so you don’t miss any more of those big season ending moments.
Choosing a HDTV at your local electronics store can be a tough task, especially if your not familiar with the technology inside each HDTV. To make life a bit more simpler for you here is a few of the features and specifications you should look for when comparing your prospects.
- Screen Size – The bigger the better. The only suggestion I have is to measure the space that your going to mount of sit the HDTV. Nothing can be more devastating then getting your 65′ TV home and realize its not going to fit in your living room.
- Resolutions – Anything less then 1080p is unacceptable. 1080p allows you to get the best High Definition picture possible.
- Low Response Time/High Refresh Rate – Make sure the TV has a max response time of 5ms and a refresh rate that’s over 100hz. This allows all the game crunching action to look smooth and sharp. The guys over at GearPatrol.com just got the Vizio XVT HTDV which boasts a 120hz refresh rate. What a sweet HDTV…Check out the review here!
- HDTV Compatible – Keep in mind that in order to get HD channels you will need to order it through your Cable or Satellite provider. They will provide you with a High Definition Receiver to replace the receiver you already have.
Now you know the basics to help you purchase the perfect HDTV to complement your NFL Sunday Ticket Package, now the rest is up to you…not your wife.
