These days, electrical goods stores are not the only places to go if you wish to buy one of the latest TV devices using LED technology. This is because the world of the internet opens up a lot more options for you to consider.
While going in to a physical store and coming away with your purchase still has its appeal, especially when you could be taking it home the same day, if you planned your TV buying in advance, you could get a new unit delivered for when you needed it.
If you want to go ahead and start looking for an LED TV to buy online, it is always advisable to conduct a fair amount of research first. You can check out review sites to find the right make and model of LED TV you were thinking about getting.
As well as seeing that it performs well, you can also do a price comparison to find the cheapest place to get this particular model, not forgetting that you need to also consider the delivery. Buying from a supplier which can be relied on to deliver the unit, undamaged, and when they say they will do this is another important consideration.
Once you have decided where you will be getting your new LED TV from, you now need to consider your installation options. TV wall brackets can be purchased online through a dedicated supplier, so make sure you order the right one for your TV today and it should arrive around the same time as the TV itself.
When you have children, their safety is your primary concern, which is why new parents reach a point where they have to baby-proof their homes in order to ensure it is a safe environment for their child to live in.
There are many dangers found within the home and it is true to say that one of the things you need to think very seriously about is where you choose to house your television set. These intriguing devices are able to captivate and enthral young people who love to watch their cartoons and popular kid’s programmes such as Dora the Explorer and Peppa Pig.
One of the reasons why it is advisable to mount your TV at height is because your child may accidentally drag it from a TV stand and injure themselves as well as damaging the device.
To keep it out of harm’s way, the TV set can be mounted onto a suitable wall using TV wall brackets. This means that your children can still enjoy the shows they love and you can have total peace of mind that this equipment is kept out of their reach.
As well as brackets for the television, you may also want to consider the TV mounts for all your other technology too. This includes a DVD shelf to house your Blu-ray or DVD player, plus your Sky TV box and a video games console should you have one. All these devices can now be kept on the wall and in addition to this; you can now get products to hide all the leads.
It is important to get the right LCD television for your viewing needs, taking into account many factors such as the price, size of the TV and how you will choose to install it. The place where you get the television from is important if you want to ensure that nothing goes wrong, so it arrives undamaged and on time.
Therefore, it is necessary to consider internet TV suppliers selling the latest LED and LCD TVs who have a good reputation for customer service, both during and after the sale. This is crucial if you want to avoid having problems later on.
A new LCD flat panel television is certainly a big investment so it is only right that you look around and check out these suppliers before opting for one to get your TV model from.
In addition to the purchase of the TV itself, you also have a decision to make as to how you would like to install it. A TV wall bracket is a great alternative to the table stand option as you can choose to mount the TV out of harm’s way and make the room more spacious too.
The same applies when buying TV brackets as well, in that you need to consider carefully where you will be getting the device from. There are many suppliers out there so it is worth taking the time to select one experienced in this area, sells top quality products and one able to deliver your mount within a short space of time.
It shows how far we have come when you take a look back at the very first television sets. Not only were they all displaying a picture in black and white, but people had to settle for a lower standard of picture quality – though some would argue that the content hasn’t always improved at the same rate.
During the 80s and 90s most TVs were still big and bulky and although nearly all in colour, they have come so far within the last decade. In fact, with the latest high definition televisions, these devices now offer far more in terms of being able to link in with all kinds of other equipment as well.
It is true to say that the overall entertainment experience has increased dramatically over time, with the most up-to-date LED, LCD and plasma TVs now being slimmer and lighter than ever, yet providing even more in terms of picture and sound quality plus the number of features available. And with the popularity of 3D in cinemas now being transferred to the home, you can now even get TVs with 3D built in.
To keep up pace with technology, TV wall brackets have been able to change too. As the TVs went slimmer and less bulky, these mounts can be designed to make the most of the TV set while looking stylish themselves at the same time. With a range of adjustment and flexibility features to suit the user, everyone can be happy with how far these devices have evolved over time.
In this final part of our look at installing LCD TVs using any one of the various options available, we will be looking at one of the most flexible wall mounts around as well as considering the provisions for ceiling mounting.
Articulating wall brackets
These wall mounting devices make use of swivel arms to allow you to pull out the LCD TV from the wall when in use. When you do not need it you can just push the unit back in again, leaving it safely stored away. When pulled out, the mounted device can be turned 120 degrees to either side as well as 10 degrees up or down too.
Ceiling TV brackets
Ceiling mounts let you mount the TV wherever you wish, should a wall not be free or suitable for installation. This LCD TV mounting option is usually coupled with a tilt bracket so you can adjust the display to the required viewing angle. This makes it easy to watch what is displayed on the TV screen. There are various different sizes to choose from, depending on your LCD TV model and its size.
Lifts for your LCD TV
Finally, you can now also get lift options to install your TV. These include such products as console lifts and motorised ceiling lifts, giving you the choice to hide your LCD TV from view when it is not in use. The motorised variety can prove to be a little more expensive due to the fact they are usually operated using a remote control device.
In the last article we looked at table stands for housing your LCD television. Although these can be a cheap option, especially as they are normally supplied along with the unit itself, they don’t give you much flexibility when it comes to TV viewing. You may need to place them on a table, which comes with its own issues.
This blog post will be concentrating on TV brackets which can be used to mount your flat panel display on nearly any wall or ceiling of your house, giving you a lot of choice.
Flat wall brackets
Firstly, we will be looking at flat wall mounts which help you in maximising the space you have available, allowing you to make the best use of this LCD technology. This particular way of mounting your display is generally regarded as the least expensive as it is has a limited amount of flexibility options compared with the other mounts. These TV wall brackets add less than two inches to the total depth of the display unit.
Tilting wall brackets
With these mounts you are able to place your television at a height which is greater than eye level, keeping your expensive LCD flat screen TV out of the way, while making it readily accessible from any place within the chosen room. Many people decide to use this option to install their LCD TV in their bedroom or above the fireplace in their living room. The tilting TV wall mount will add 4-6 inches to the depth of the installed unit.
In the last article we explained how you can now decide to incorporate your new LCD flat screen television into nearly any kind of décor as long as thought has been put into making this decision. Now we will be considering the many different ways you can install this LCD display in the home.
By considering these options, you will surely be able to find the perfect way to install one of these TVs in your house.
Table stands have become one of the most popular ways to display an LCD TV unit, along with the wall-mounting options available. There are the stands you usually get with the TV itself and then there are table stands which have been used to place televisions for many years.
It is important to realise that these smaller units will not fit all appliances so you would need to check the dimensions of your TV set before purchasing one(if it is not included with the device). They can be limiting as there is no one-size-fits-all approach.
If you do decide to go with this option, you will still have to place the television plus table stand on a table unit which provides you with the right viewing height. This can sometimes be troublesome as it is hard to get it exactly perfect. Also, if you do decide to install your LCD TV on a table, you need to watch out for any children or pets you have at home, as they could hurt themselves or damage the set.
While having plenty of choice can be a good thing, as it allows you more options, it can also leave you confused as to which would be the best decision for you. When it comes to installing your newly purchased LCD television, you might be wondering where to put it, and how you will be placing it.
In this article and subsequent ones, we will be looking at the various considerations over how you could choose to install your new device. As an LED or LCD flat screen TV is quite an investment these days, you would want to be one hundred percent sure before you go with any particular option.
The great thing about LCD technology is that it does give consumers additional options in relation to the physical placement of this display unit. In the past you basically had no choice but to configure the entire room around this TV set. Now those days are long gone and in fact a TV can be incorporated into almost any environment.
Whether it is in the home, in a shopping centre or at a commercial establishment such as a pub or club, with just a bit of prior thought, you could place this TV in almost any décor. Just think about the following options we will be discussing, which include the latest TV brackets, and you will soon see that there are more than half a dozen means of installing a new LCD TV in any room within the home.
When you have just bought a new plasma or LED LCD TV, it is so easy to just get carried away in the euphoria and forget about having to think about where would be best to place it.
If you have purchased the flat screen television for your bedroom, then it is necessary to consider whether you will be placing it on the table stand usually provided with the unit or mounting it onto the wall using TV brackets. The latter option gives you more in the way of flexibility and safety, not to mention its space-saving qualities.
Selecting the wall to install the TV brackets on will depend on factors like the amount of space free at this moment in time, whether other items can easily be moved to make way for your new addition and the part of the room where you will be watching the TV from.
Just as much thought needs to go into placing your new TV in the lounge or living room as there may be paintings on the wall and you need to bear in mind where you will be watching it from – will you have to move the settee into a better position?
All these things and more need to be considered when looking to install TV wall brackets to place your TV on to. You can get TV wall brackets which offer a great degree of flexibility though, so if you do need to alter the angle at all, you can do so with these products.
There are a number of advantages of using an LCD as your main television within your home. These include things like their brightness and high levels of contrast, plus their bold and smooth picture quality.
As well as these reasons to choose an LCD TV model for your HDTV provision over other flat screens is because you can choose to watch them from anywhere in the room, thanks to their wide viewing angle of 160 degrees.
So from 80 degrees away from the centre of the TV display in both directions, you can still see a good picture.
An LCD set looks great in any living room and the fact that you are no longer restricted as to where you have to sit or lie to really enjoy the experience makes it a truly worthwhile purchase.
However, it is still advisable to buy TV wall brackets for your new LCD TV as they can offer you even more flexibility in terms of tilting and further adjustability while it is held on the wall.
Another advantage of LCD TVs relates to dot pitch and the distance between colour pixels in defining the sharpness of the screen resolution. Having a higher dot pitch also makes the viewing angle easier too.
So although plasma TVs also offer wide viewing angles for users, the latest LCD models have certainly managed to catch up somewhat with their counterparts. But in order to get the ultimate viewing experience, it is not just about the flat-screen TV you opt for; it is also about the choice in TV wall brackets.
