Choosing a New TV - What to Look For When TV Shopping

List: Posted: 04/22/11

If you're in the market for a new television, there are a few tips that can help you.  From money-saving tips to finding the best quality set, you can find the right TV for your household without spending a fortune. 


Although online TV shopping can be frustrating if you're not quite sure what you're looking for, if you keep these tips in mind you'll have better luck finding a unit that works for your budget and looks great on your wall.

When TV shopping at the electronics store, it's best to be an informed skeptic.  If you give away the fact that you have no clue what you're buying, you may get nudged towards a more expensive option than you actually need.


Before you shop, do your research. Ask questions, read user ratings, and take note of specifics of various models before making any decisions.  TV shopping takes time, and a purchase should not be made hastily.  Also, beware of over-buying accessories you don't need. Many consumers get caught up in buying extra cables and TV accessories when shopping for a new television.  Most models will come with everything you need to get going, so be careful before you start shelling out cash for cables and wiring.

One things many consumers don't think of when TV shopping is negotiating.  Most electronic stores want to make the sale and have a little room to negotiate, so it's worth the effort to save a little extra.  Steer clear of extras like the extended warranty when TV shopping as well.  These are unnecessary expenditures that just hike up the price of your television.

Delivery and setup are also worth looking into when TV shopping, especially if you're in the market for a large television.  Many stores will offer free or low cost delivery and setup, which can save you a headache when TV shopping.  

Finding the right television can be easy as long as you take your time making the purchase.
