Final thoughts

We hope this post gave you a better idea of how big TVs are in comparison to humans. There’s nothing wrong with getting a TV that is too small, but there can be issues if it’s too big and won’t fit the space you have available in your home or office. We also wanted to mention that while 65″ and 75″ TVs might seem impressive, they may not always be the best option for everyone’s needs, especially when price point is taken into consideration. Sometimes smaller models will do just as well!
