A dorm room is small and tight. As much love as you may have for a projector-size television monitor, try and fit it in and the picture will look absolutely horrendous. Even mounted, it’s unachievable to make a massive screen look anything more than inappropriately size.
Unfortunately, there is such a thing as ‘too big’. Fortunately, you’ve got options in searching for dorm room TVs.
Dorm Room TV Size
First off, let’s address what we all came here to talk about. Size. Your TV doesn’t need to be anything larger than 32 inches and even that is at the extreme end of what’s appropriate. A 32” LCD HD TV is the right size for a dorm room and on top of that, it won’t cost you a ton.
Choosing Between A 4K or 1080p Dorm Room TV
If you have a 4K 32” TV and a 1080p 32” TV side-by-side with each other, the right pick is neither. Unquestionably, 4K is a better signal in picture quality. On a 32” television, however, you won’t notice much of a difference between 4K and 1080p.
You also won’t notice much of a difference between 1080p and 720p on most bedroom televisions. Why this is the case is because you can only fit so many noticeable pixels on a TV screen the size of 32 inches.
For this reason – and for the sake of saving a little more money – search out a 720p 32” HD television.
You’ll still get a high-definition signal, great audio quality, and will be able to watch all your 4K content. It will just be a heck of a lot cheaper than getting a 4K screen which no dorm room needs.
How You Can Create the Mecca for Media And Entertainment on Your TV
The average dorm room is 130 square feet. To maximize space, consider using a TV wall mount elevating your screen up and against the wall. This eliminates the need to set your screen on a table, desk, or surface of any kind. Here are some other ways you can upgrade your 720p television on a budget.
- USB LED strip lights provide a multi-color glow to your TV background. Improve image clarity, relieve eye fatigue, and impress guests.
- Add a 4K Android Smart TV Box to turn your regular 720p TV into a smart TV. Enjoy Netflix, YouTube, social media, browse the Internet, play games, and more.
- A Bluetooth stereo soundbar not only will provide your TV screen with high-quality sound but it also provides a way to cast audio to it from your smartphone. Listen to Spotify, podcasts, and more.
