Which specifications are important in my situation?


Standard Member
Hello everybody,

I'm going to buy a new TV for my new house. I don't have much knowledge I only know that I'm about 4 meter (about 13 feet right?) away from my TV so it can't be too small. Money isn't really an issue but off course I want good quality for my money.

When I'm in a store I see things like contrast ratio and static contrast ratio (what's the difference?). also I'm wondering how important the viewing angle is as it seems almost all tv's are having around 178 degrees. One other thing which I was wondering is how important the brightness (cd/m2?) is (fyi: I have large windows in the wall next to the TV.

Many salesman in the store's are telling me all this specifications but what I really would like to know is which specifications I have to look for in my situation.

Are there any other specifications that I should be keeping in mind when buying a TV?

Thanks in advance!
