Buying a TV for your living room or bedroom or kitchen needs a lot of research due to the many options we have today. Just a few years ago, a 55″ TV was found to be gigantic, but now we have TVs that go up to 90″ even.
They say that a “TV can never be too big“, which is true in most cases but, it isn’t in some. However, you will notice that most people regret buying a smaller TV because no matter how big a TV is, we get used to it very quickly.
Most houses these days have contemporary designs with large open spaces, which allows for a 65″ or a 75″ TV easily. A 75″ TV might look very big in a small room, while it will fit perfectly in a large room.
Mentioned below are some important information that will give you better knowledge about if a 65-inch or 75-inch TV is right for you.
Also, mentioned are some factors you should consider before buying a 65″ or a 75″ TV.
The distance of the TV from the viewer plays a vital role in fully experiencing the quality and features of the TV.
The viewing distance depends on the TV size and also the resolution of the TV.
In case of a 65 inch TV the average recommended distance is between 8.1 -13.5 feet away. While for a 75 inch TV the distance should be between 8.75-14.75 feet away.
These are only the recommended average distances and maybe vary with every viewer.
The recommended viewing distance may also slightly vary among different manufacturers.
The recommended viewing angle by THX is 40 degrees if you want a cinematic experience.
For that, you need to you divide your distance from the TV (in cms) by 0.84. That will give you the size of the TV display you should get.
Most viewers usually sit at 9 feet away from the TV, so for that distance, the recommended size by THX is a 90-inch screen!!
So, the 65 inches or the 75 inch TV you think could be too big is not big at all.
While according to CNET, for the recommended distance, you need to multiply the distance(in cms) by 0.667. Now, that will give you 72-inch screen size for a distance of 9 feet.
Room size is one of the crucial factors you should consider before buying a TV.
A 65″ or a 75″ TV will need a bigger room size in order to give a fully immersive experience with excellent audiovisuals.
The room should not be either too big or too small for the TV size.
You should know the dimensions of the TV you wish to install and check its feasibility with your room size.
A 65 inch TV has the following dimensions
- Width: ~ 57-inch
- Height: ~ 32-inch
And, a 75″ TV has
- Width: ~ 66-inch
- Height: ~ 37-inch
It’s always a good idea to cut cardboard with the dimensions of the TV size you want and place it in your room to check how it looks.
A 65 inch or a 75 inch TV is a good size for the living room or your bedroom if it is spacious.
The resolution of the TV you wish to buy will also help you to decide the room size or the viewing distance or the size of the TV.
The most commonly used TV resolution these days is 4K Ultra HD. We can even find a resolution of 8K ultra high definition these days.
When you sit too close to a TV with lesser resolution, you can notice the pixelation on screen. A higher resolution allows you to sit closer to the screen without seeing the small dotted pixels.
If you have a 65 inch TV, the recommended viewing distance with a resolution of 1080p HD is between 8.1-13.5 feet.
And, in case of a 4K Ultra HD resolution, then the distance should be between 5.4-8.1 feet.
For a 75 inch TV with a resolution of 1080p, the viewing distance range is 9.4-15.6 feet.
While in case of a 4K Ultra HD resolution, the recommended distance is between 6.3-9.4 feet.
If you have space in your room that can accommodate either a 65 inch or 75 inch TV, then it is best to buy a bigger screen.
When you buy a big screen TV like a 65 inch or a 75 inch, you need to be concerned regarding the space it will take up.
You can either wall mount the TV or place it on a TV stand.
These days, TVs are usually light regardless of their size. It is a good option to wall mount big screen TVs.
Wall-mounting the TV will save you a lot of space and is a safer option if you have kids or pets around.
But, if you wish to use a TV stand then make sure you measure the dimensions of the stand and compare it with the TV size. This will give you an idea of the space the whole setup will consume.
In case of wall mounting, you will find a variety of brackets and mounts of your choice.
The current trend is to use an articulating or swivel wall mounts for ease of viewing.
You should know that the TV size you buy is never too big for you if you have a room that fits the size.
People these days prefer bigger display TVs because of the high-quality resolutions they come in.
Better the resolution, closer you can sit to the TV and hence lesser the room space you need.
A 65 inch or75 inch TV is not too big if you want a theatre- like experience in your home.
No matter what size of a TV you buy, in a matter of time you get used to the size and, that leaves you wanting for a bigger size.
