You're supposed to buy 70-inch or larger. You get 'moar football' with a bigger screen. And 4K... anything less is for losers.
I bought a TV last week (unrelated to the damn Super Bowl and our first TV since moving into this house two years ago). It was $219. 43" 1080p Sharp with all the bells and whistles. TVs are NOT expensive these days, why would you be counting on a tax refund for one?
I always laugh when I hear my older, politically conservative family members complaining about how "all those people in the projects living high on the hog with their flat panel TVs".
You can buy one of those for like sixty bucks at Rite Aid now. It's not a luxury good.
LOL! Yeah, I bought a 55" Toshiba 1080p with Chromecast for $300 delivered. TV's are not expensive nowadays.
What do you frugal cheap fools know about enjoying life and relaxing?
Ha! The 55" was for my bedroom, any bigger and it would awkward.
You need a bigger wall in the bedroom, hence bigger bedroom, hence bigger houzz!
Rule of Thumb for bedroom TV is your US shoe size multiplied by 7, then rounded UP to the next screen size.
If screen is curved then multiplier is 8.
Go big or get a short-throw projector.
Now you need a 7.1 system in the bedroom.
Then sound-absorbent artistic panels.
Then a mini-fridge and microwave.
Install a bedpan and you're done.
