Mike Allen doesn't know who will win this year's Super Bowl, but he does know one thing - the TV on Sunday better be up for the challenge.
To ensure this, Fantasy Football enthusiast Allen is going to a buddy's house on game day to enjoy his 65-inch Mitsubishi TV.
"You got to see everything. You want to see if the refs are making bad calls or good calls," Allen said. "You want to know if you got something to argue about."
Fortunately for Super Bowl fans like Allen, TVs are now just as super as the game itself.
"We've got TVs with pictures that are just as life-like as sitting in the stands would be," said Erik Brautigam, manager of the electronics section at the Bowling Green Meijer. "We want to stay ahead of the curve and stay ahead of the game."
Staying ahead of the game includes staying ahead of the refresh rates.
For sports-viewing, Brautigam recommends TVs with a high refresh rate like the new 51-inch Plasma Samsung.
"The advantage of having a Plasma TV is the high refresh rate," Brautigam said. "The higher the refresh rate, the better quality of picture you'll get."
Purchasing a LED TV versus a LCD television will also help capture every touchdown.
LED TVs are energy-friendly as they use only 12 watts of power and have a high pixilation.
