TV sales up, experts explain best buy for sports

MISHAWAKA From LED to Plasma, hertz to pixels, there are a lot of choices when it comes to choosing the best TV, especially if its purpose is for sports. Not to mention, price plays a big role.

A new survey from Fat Wallet, says Americans want to spend around $500 for a new TV, but as anyone who walks into a retailer can see, the options and price range expand much further.

16 Morning News stopped by Best Buy, to find expert advice on selecting the best TV for a customer's needs.

LED/LCD: brighter TVs, best for rooms with a lot of light. LED is the most expensive but will last the longest. Both run by bulbs.

Plasma: best for darker rooms and gaming. The TV runs from gases and includes a glass, reflective screen. Recommended for sports.

"The bigger the screen, the more pixels you're going to need," said Erick Avila-Mejia, the sales lead in the Home Theatre department at Best Buy in Mishawaka.

"Every TV is rated," said Avila-Mejia. "They have resolution and they have something called the refresh rate. With bigger TVs, I usually recommend with 39 inch TVs or bigger at least 129 hertz."
