Widescreen Makes A Big Difference!

Find out what you're missing!

Widescreen is here to stay! If you're getting ready to buy a new television, one of the most important considerations you need to make is whether to buy a 16:9 HDTV ready television, or a more conventional 4:3 television set. The shape of 16:9 televisions help make watching DVDs and HDTV content even more enjoyable, but you will make certain compromises when watching 4:3 programming. Use this calculator before you buy your next set and make an informed decision!

Note: The calculations given here are mathematically accurate. However, there are several factors that will affect how these numbers are represented in "real life". For instance, on CRT displays, often the diagonal area of the glass facing the individual is less than the claimed size of the display. Additionally, most CRT displays have a slight border around the viewable area. Use this website as a guideline for your purchases; however, it is in your best interest to take a tape measure to the store and measure the visible area on the screen.
