How well a TV can be watched from an angle can be a big deal in a lot of living rooms. To check this on a TV you’re interested in, pause an image on the screen that contains a bright, ideally colorful object against a dark backdrop, and start walking around it from straight opposite to down its sides while looking for the following:

  • Significant greyness over parts of the picture that look black when viewed straight-on
  • Colors losing vibrancy
  • The increased appearance of backlight clouds, stripes, or halos.

Once one or more of these issues becomes distractingly obvious, note roughly the angle you’re looking at the screen from and apply that to your living room seating positions.
