After seven years of faithful service, my bedroom television has finally given up on me. The DVD player no longer works and the picture was terrible (bought before HD so not great to begin with) and so the quest is on to find some new bedroom tech.
Times have evolved greatly in terms of what you can purchase, particularly in terms of size and picture quality. The typical 19 inch cube like televisions have moved on to larger flat screen versions and the picture quality has improved by leaps and bounds. From ordinary SDTV we have moved to to HDTV and now, the latest innovation is 4KTV with the likes of the Panasonic Viera range.
When buying a new television, it is always useful to read to the latest tech blogs and check out the best TVs that you can buy within your budget range. There are so many different types of television that you can buy, dependent on what you are looking for and the services you want it to provide.
When it comes to buying a television for a bedroom, often, you want it to be a multi tasker. Are you a gamer? Are you a Netflix addict? Will you use it in collaboration with your laptop? Do you want to connect to the internet?
All of these options can be catered for and given that the price of technology has come down in recent years, the cost of what you want is not going to burden your purse too heavily.
For me, I am a film buff. I love watching films, either through my Freeview or on DVD. Netflix will be my next port of call, I can no longer resist its calling. With this is mind I have gone for a larger television, 32 inches which is the largest that I can have within my space capacities.
HD is a must given the amount of films that I watch and I can only imagine how great some of my old favourites are going to look like on a much larger screen with much better resolution. Avatar, Lord of the Rings, Star Trek, the Fast & the Furious series; all will be getting a dusting off and a marathon film weekend will be happening soon!
