Not long ago a TV was a TV, just a television set.
Yes, there where sets with some extra features, stand alone speakers for example, but it was easy to pick your choice.
Now you have a lot more options to take into consideration and a number of terms to learn.
So let us see what kind of guide lines we can give you.
TV Wall Mount – These TV:s sell more and more but are considerably more expensive.
They are called TV wall mount as they are so thin, 2-5 inches, or 5-10 centimeters.
The picture is completely flat and the set should be connected to digital systems.
The number one reason to buy a TV wall mount is the fact that it doesn´t require any space on the floor.
Today you can choose one of two techniques, LCD and plasma screens.
The LCD technique is best for screens up to 30 inches and they cost from just under $1,000 up to $3,000 USD.
An LCD screen can also be connected to your computer, no problem.
One disadvantage can be on some screens, there is a delay in showing the picture, which can be rather annoying with fast movements like in football and other sports.
The plasma screens works better for really big screens, 32-50 inches.
The prices are coming down but often start around $2,000 USD.
The internet is of course the best place to start your search for a TV wall mount, LCD or Plasma.
Also remember that the prices given here are probably higher than what you can find out there!
The TV techniques are developing fast, like the computer industry, so if you are not in a hurry, wait and the prices will drop.

If you want to experience the best of a sports game, nature or action movie, as you almost where there, you are probably ready to spend a lot of money .

There are some practical things to consider for a TV wall mount. How much is the weight of your particular TV model?
Can you mount it on the wall in a safe way?
Make sure that any mount that you consider is able to comfortably handle the weight of your TV.
You will need a strong, sturdy equipment that can handle the weight. If the wall itself is the weak point you should perhaps look for another alternative than wall mount.
Or secure the equipment to the floor or the ceiling.
Many TV models have specially made equipment for a wall mount. You can also find good universal mounts available.
It used to be that the only wall mounts were a set of metal brackets that mounted to the wall and the TV hung on those brackets.
Which made it harder to move the screen. Now you can find flexible wall mount units that actually let you extend the TV from the wall and turn it to adjust the viewing angle too.
In the ads for TV sets you will always get a long list of features. Don´t care about that list for a start.
It is the picture on the screen that is of most importance.
If the picture is bad that is the thing that will be most annoying.
Use your eyes and compare several types of TV sets in a shop even if the environment is light and very different from your home.
Bring your favorite picture to the shop and ask to have it shown.
Now you can get a better understanding of the quality of the screen, the colours etcetera.
The sound is easy to forget. But a bad sound can destroy the most wonderful picture.
It is great if you can listen to the sound more privately or try to be there when there are few customers.
Stereo sound is the most common but is not necessarily automatically hifi-quality.
You can often get a better sound if you connect the TV sound to your own equipment or put up extra speakers.
A TV wall mount will in the coming years be the most sold TV equipment.
The prices will go down and the weight will be reduced considerably.
They will be easy to mount and with great sound and picture. To put it simple, it is the future.
