  • Screen size: Before you set out to buy your new TV, you must check the size of the available space where you planning to put it up. For those who wish to keep it on tables, need to measure the table length and breadth and see how much weight it can take. For those who wish to put it up on the wall, they must use an inch tape and see the space that is vacant for the television. Only after doing this can you narrow down your options there.
  • Screen resolution: This is very important. This means the resolution at which you will be able to see the events that are taking place on the screen.

Also, if any member of your family needs the volume to be a little higher, check the maximum volume up to which you can increase it. You must not face difficulties later.
