My answer: When it comes to shopping for a tv, my suggestion is to buy the biggest (and slimmest) that you can afford.

There are a lot of technical explanations regarding the ratio of how far your seats/sofa should be from the size of your tv but, in my opinion, tv and home movie-watching these days are all about having a cinematic experience. It is basically mimicking watching movies in a VIP theater on a large screen with surround sound and comfy seating only it’s done in the comforts of your own living room. To duplicate that cinema-like experience, a big monitor is a must. I tell you, most people spend very little time wishing they were watching a smaller screen, and in my experience, it doesn’t take long to get used to a really big display.

When it comes to decor, gone are the 90’s style big chunky tv’s that make interior designers cringe. They were considered tacky but since televisions these days are way slimmer and sleeker, and the designs are modern and blend well with most interiors, having a huge yet slim monitor is like having a piece of art.


The new X9300D series of Bravia™ 4K LCD TVs is equipped with Sony’s brand new Slim Backlight Drive™ technology that takes picture quality to new heights by delivering the best from 4K HDR content. With a unique backlight system structure, the X9300D series allows X-tended Dynamic Range™ PRO technology to boost peak brightness and black levels more precisely and enhance contrast levels, while maintaining its slim form. The 4K Processor X1™ and its precision color mapping technology allows Triluminous™ Display to reproduce a wider color ranger with accurate color details at any brightness level.


Sony believes and understands that more than a good viewing experience, a television should also have the aesthetics to fit any environment. This is why the new Bravia™ televisions are designed with sleek lines and elegant slim displays to complement one’s home interior.


The latest Bravia™ series is designed to make each TV set the ideal piece for any room. When hung against a wall, the X9300D series sits very close to the surface, virtually disappearing into the wall and leaving nothing but the picture. In addition, the clean cable management keeps wires out of view, providing an equally elegant look when viewed from behind.

A work of art


Movie is the art of make-believe wherein the lines between illusion and reality can get blurred. Whether you opt for a small or big tv the key is to make sure you invest in a high-quality one and from a trusted brand.
