Black Friday Electronics Deals Buying Guide


When one thinks of Black Friday Electronics Deals, the number one item which comes to mind is the TV. If you are looking to buy a new TV, the size of the room does not dictate the size of the TV. What is more important is the distance you will be sitting from the screen. Televisions today are much sharper than those manufactured years ago, allowing you to sit closer for a more immersive experience without seeing the pixels.


As for television size, it is recommended you buy the largest screen at the space and your budget can accommodate. Most living rooms can accommodate a 50 to 60inch television, where most bedrooms a 32inch Black Friday TV fits well. If you want a more precise way to determine the largest TV size for your room, then here is a good formula go by. Measure the distance from your seating area to where the television will be placed. Multiply that number by 0.65 and this will give you the largest screen size for that distance. For example, if you’re sitting 8 feet away from the screen multiply 8 by 0.65, this will give you 5.2 or a 52inch TV. Keep in mind that you may need to select a smaller size to the space restrictions, like a cabinet or a wall unit.


When it comes to Black Friday TV screen types, the most common today is LCD. LCD stands for liquid crystal display. Liquid crystals do not emit light directly, therefore they must be backlit by a separate light source. Today’s LCD panels are illuminated by LEDs. There are several benefits to this technology. LED televisions usually have a brighter picture, run cooler and use less energy than the earlier flat panel televisions which use compact fluorescent bulbs to eliminate the panel. Then there is OLED. This technology has been around for some time and today is becoming more popular. OLED stands for organic light-emitting diode. Unlike traditional LED TVs OLED uses an organic substance that glows when the electric current is introduced, therefore backlighting is not necessary. This not only the finest but also the most energy-efficient television technology available today.


If you stream video from a service provider such as Netflix or YouTube, you may want to consider a Smart TV. Keep in mind there are different levels of smart televisions and that they’re not all the same. In other words, some Smart TVs are smaller than others, so take a look at the specs or consult one of the sales assistants in store to help you find a television that best fits your needs.
