Bigger is better
The expression “Bigger is Better” makes up for a pretty decent guideline when it comes to television. Whether you’re looking for a basic or high-performance TV, the biggest factor in your decision will probably be screen size. If you are given an option to choose between a smaller TV with smart features and a simple bigger TV, it would be wise to opt for the bigger size for the same price which builds an immersive experience. if your room can accommodate a wide screen television, no other feature should be given more emphasis.
Larger screen are easier on your eyes, as more of your field of view is taken up with the roughly uniform brightness of the screen. In an otherwise dark room, your pupils are also more naturally closed to the amount of light thanks to the big screen.
Get the Right Connections

The most important input is HDMI, which supports almost all major forms of digital video sources including Blu-ray players, game consoles, set-top boxes, cameras, camcorders, phones, tablets, and PCs through a single cable.
