That’s right, you’re losing money if you’re not using a TV screen protector. Maybe not right now, but believe me, you’re going to hate yourself for not buying a protector when your TV gets hit or scratched. There’s nothing like a great HDTV, but the biggest problem is that they can break so easily and you can’t add them to your homeowner’s insurance policy.
When it breaks, you have to go out and buy a new one. Here’s a few ways that a screen protector will keep you from losing money. Kids Kids are great, but let’s take the imagery of smiling faces and pitter-patter of tiny feet out of the equation. Kids love playing, and they often get a little too rough. They probably don’t mean to, but kids are known to knock over things that can be fairly expensive. HDTVs are no exception (in fact, it seems like the norm because HDTVs are easy to knock over).
If you want your TV to survive that hurricane that is children, then you better get a good screen protector. Flying Objects You probably don’t think that flying objects are that common in the house, and you’re probably right. However, it wouldn’t be called an accident if it were common. Flying objects (like balls, plates, bowls and Wiimotes) can also hit your TV and shatter the screen. Suddenly your $800+ HDTV is nothing but shattered glass and plastic.
A good screen protector will keep you from having to replace the TV by being able to absorb the impact of a 6-ounce object flying at 20mph. for a real world example, that’s like a light bowling ball being hurled at your TV. Makes you feel a little safer, huh? Insurance Policy As stated above, you can’t add your TV to your homeowner’s insurance policy (though it would be nice since low-end ones are $600, but many of the best are $2,000+). You can think of the protector as your insurance policy.
A good one should only cost about $150 to $300 depending on the size, which is actually a good investment that will keep you from losing money. Tiny Problems Scratching a TV’s screen is much easier than you think. It just takes a little bit of dust and a small amount of friction to cause a scratch. Believe me, you’ll notice that scratch because the colors won’t seem right in the one area. It’s very annoying to look at and you’ll go crazy trying to ignore it.
A TV screen protector will keep this from happening because it shields the TV from dust and other particles. The protectors are also easier to clean than the screen itself, which just makes things move a little faster. Conclusion Maybe you’re not losing money right now, but you’ll lose a lot of money when your TV breaks. Your standard TV is at least $600, but most people don’t protect their investment. If you are scared of your TV being broken or damaged and having to buy a new one, then go out right now and invest in a screen protector. Not only that, but you should be able to place the protector on a new TV when you upgrade if it’s roughly the same size.
