Compare TV Sizes: Which One to Get?

If you’re looking for a new television this holiday season, you need to read this blog post. TVs come at many different sizes and prices. The question is, which one will be best for your needs? This blog post compares the dimensions of TV’s that are available on the market today so that you can decide what size would work best for your living room or bedroom.

Comparing TV Sizes

32 inch vs 40 inch TV

The difference width between a 32″ and a 40″ set is 17,7 cm.

A 32″ TV is the one you would get if you are looking for an LCD TV for a small bedroom or kitchen, but you could go a size bigger and get a 40″. Let’s look at their dimensions:

Size Width Height Area
32″ 27.9″
70.9 cm
15.7″
39.9 cm

40″ 34.9″

43 inch vs 50 inch TV

The most popular TV sizes purchased by Americans until recently have been in this category, but with advances in technology such as OLED and QNED, the desired size is increasing year by year, according to Consumer Reports.

The smallest LG’s Nanocell and OLED models start in this category. The smallest Nanocell is 43″ and currently, the smallest OLED from the current LG’s lineup is 48″.

Let’s look at the differences in size between a 43″ and a 50″ TV:

Size Width Height Area
43″ 37.5″

50 inch vs 55 inch TV

The difference between the two sizes is not as clear-cut to the eye. Many different factors need consideration, such as what brands you’re interested in and your budget range for a TV set! The C1, for example, is a 55-inch TV from LG Display’s OLED range, whereas the Samsung QLED series includes a 50-inch model called the Q60A Series. So this may be a question of what television is best suited to your needs and budget rather than size.

Let’s look at the differences in size between a 50″ and a 55″ TV:

Size Width Height Area
50″ 43.6″
110.7 cm
24.5″
62.2 cm

55″ 47.9″

68.6 cm
1293 in2

55 inch vs 65 inch TV

22 centimetres is the difference in width between 55″ and 65″. That’s enough to make a substantial impact in your living room. And televisions beginning at 65″ are unquestionably more costly, so be prepared to pay much more for those 22 cm.

For example, 2021 55″ Sony Bravia XR XR55A80J will retail for £1,299.00 in the UK, while a 65″ from the same model will cost you £1,799.00 (source: John Lewis)

Here are the dimensions of a 55″ and a 65″ TV:

Size Width Height Area
55″ 47.9″

81.0 cm
1809 in2
1.166 m2
55 inch vs 65 inch TV
55 inch vs 65 inch TV

65 inch vs 75 inch TV

The width difference between a 65-inch and a 75-inch TV is 22 cm. If you are looking at a TV with these proportions, be prepared to invest in a specialized mount if the TV weighs more than 30 kg, which is usually the case.

For example, Samsung’s 75 Inch Q70A 4K UHD QLED Smart TV weighs 32.1 kg without the stand.

Consider obtaining some assistance unpacking the TV and attaching it to the stand, as these are frequently detached.

A large screen TV is an investment that will last you for years to come. A 75 or 85-inch model are perfect if your living space can accommodate it! The difference in width between these two sizes is 22 centimetres – considerable enough to forget about this dimension when shopping around.

For an ideal display of a 75-inch screen, the minimum viewing distance is 10.5 feet (3.5 m), and for an 85-inch one, it’s 11.9 feet (3.63 m).
