Choosing the Best TV

Buying a new TV can be stressful. You’re looking for the best quality picture, a device that fits with your rooms aesthetic whilst remaining affordable.

I guess it depends on personal preference, but in some ways the area in which you grew up in will also have a bearing on where you’ll eventually settle. I grew up in a small village which is about a short 15 minute drive away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. I still live there now, although not in the same house.
