rsz_christmas_gifts_dorm_room_tv.jpgDorm rooms and student apartments are often small spaces, so it’s important to make the most of every inch.

After study time and exam cramming, you’ll want to kick back and enjoy some home entertainment, whether it’s TV, movies, gaming or streaming. Instead of packing a TV and an armload of peripherals, why not get everything you want in one compact package?

These are the top small TV picks for students; they’re all exclusive to Best Buy and offer 24/7 support if you run into a problem:

While a 60 inch TV would make your pad everyone’s favourite hangout, as a student, budgets are usually limited. The wallet friendly price of this 24” Insignia LED TV means you get a great deal and a great 1080p picture all in a dorm-friendly size. Best Buy customer Steve from Niagara Falls says in his online review it’s a “great TV if you are looking for a smaller one.”
If you’ve got a bit more wall space and you can expand to a slightly bigger set, take a look at this 32” 720p Toshiba. The 720p HD resolution gives you crisp, detailed images plus the sound quality is good too (so you don’t need extra speakers or a sound bar if that’s not in the student budget) thanks to integrated DTS TruSurround. Two HMDI ports let you hook up gaming consoles, DVD players, and other devices if you’re bringing them along.


Up in the 40” range there are a couple of good options for small-to-medium sized spaces. The 40” Insignia 1080p HD LED TV is a perfect choice, according to customer and reviewer Connie S. from Sault Sainte Marie: “This is the third Insignia TV that I have purchased. The smaller ones were for a college student & also a bedroom TV. Both still have excellent picture & sound several years later.” Since it’s full HD, you’ll still get great video quality, but for a student-sized price.

Also in the 40” size, Samsung’s full HD J5500 TV boasts enhanced picture quality, greater clarity, and a wider range of colours but this TV is also smart, meaning no need to spend more money on an external streaming device so you can bring along your Netflix subscription! With built-in WiFi and 3 HDMI ports, plus a quad-core processor you’ll get quick access to your favourite online and streaming content without having to fuss with external streaming devices.

Just a touch bigger, but also a smart TV, this 43” Sharp HD TV has the power of Roku streaming also built right in. Roku’s platform is super easy to use and delivers over a thousand streaming channels, plus games, broadcast TV, and more. Since all that comes with beautiful Full HD 1080p picture quality, your screen’s content will look incredibly lifelike.

So whether you’re looking for a simple, inexpensive small TV to plug your other devices into, or you need a full all-in-one entertainment package that includes smart functions, there’s plenty of options to choose from, exclusively at Best Buy.
