TV MATH:

Plasma's usually weigh more than an LCD. In general 60" plasma screen is going to weigh more than 100lbs, you'll probably need to reinforce the wall before you can wall mount it.

The bigger the screen the bigger the wall you're going to need, that's obvious, but don't overlook space for the viewing distance. The higher the resolution of the screen the closer you can reasonbly sit.

We use the suggestion of measuring the diagonal of your TV and multiplying it by 1.5, the resulting number will give you the number of inches you should be sitting from the screen.

If you have a 42" screen the math is 42x1.5=63, 63" divided by 12= 5' 3".

A 60" diameter screen 7' 6'' and a 70" diameter is over 8' 6".

The best recommendation we've run across is that the bottom third of the TV screen should be at eye level.

 
THE FIREPLACE: tv algebra

It may work with your decor to put your TV above the fireplace, but most people place their TV too high.

Before you mount your TV above the fireplace, take a piece of cardboard or framed piece of artwork approximately the same size as the TV you aree considering and place it over the fireplace. Check out the "slouch" potato viewing angle, see how much you'll want to tilt the screen to view it comfortably or reduce glare with it mounted way up there, above your fireplace.

A brief comparison of LCD, Plasma, HDTV, LED, OLED screens.

LCD TV:
LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) televisions are thinner and lighter and the flat screen diminishes picture distortion.The viewing area is more narrow than that of a plasma screen but the backlighting used in LCD makes viewing easier with window and reflective light.

Plasma TV:

Think big. In comparision to an LCD, plasma corners the big screen market. The color is generally better, the contrast between black and white is brighter, and they have twice the viewing angle. The downside, plasmas also have a shorter life span than LCDs.

HDTV:
HDTV or High-Definition Television means just what it says; better definition in picture and sound quality.

LED TV:
LED (Light Emitting Diode) TV is simply a backlit LCD. It's very easy to install and the image quality is brighter. The energy consumption depends on the type of LED technology. Backlit LED's require more energy while edge-lit LEDs consume less.

OLED TVs:
OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) TVs depend on light emitting polymer technology. The term organic is ubiquitous after all, petroleum is organic. OLED screens have a faster refresh rate than LCDs, use less power, and have a greater color range. Thus far, the down side to OLED technology is the limited life span of the organic materials used, limits the life span of the TV considerably.
