So, you've determined that a 60-inch flat screen TV is ideal for your space. As you begin browsing Best Buy's 60-inch LED TV selection, you'll quickly discover you've got far fewer options in that size than if you were looking for a 55-inch or a 65-inch set. But, despite the relatively limited assortment, it's still simple to find a top-performing, big-name, ultra-quality 60-inch television, equipped with all the features you want.
Depending on which of the various viewing-distance-from-the-screen theories you embrace, a 60-inch TV will provide no distortion and no visible pixels when viewed from about 7.5 feet to 12.5 feet away with a 1080p HDTV-quality screen, and from about 5 feet to 7.5 feet away with a 4K Ultra HD screen. For that reason, a good first step in your search for the best 60-inch TV is to visualize the seating arrangement you'll have in the room, and where you'll place your TV. Also consider window locations, with an eye toward preventing possible glare during daytime watching. You may also want to decide whether or not you have room for a popcorn machine, to contribute to an authentic theater feel.
60-Inch TVs: Set Up Tips
A big part of determining your TV placement is deciding whether you want your 60-inch TV to sit on a stand, or if your TV-watching experience will be better served by a TV wall mount, which will also save physical space in the room. Another consideration is related to audio quality. Since the slimmer design of most newer televisions results in smaller speakers, you'll want to think about whether the built-in audio is sufficient for providing the sonic presence you want, or if you'd be better off using a sound bar, a popular all-in-one audio choice that not only provides quality sound, but also takes up less room than multi-component systems.
