Which Size HDTV is Right for My Room?

HDTV Size chart
With standard-definition TVs, the rule used to be that viewers would feel comfortable watching a set from a distance of 3 to 6 times the screen size in inches. With HDTV, the resolution is so much better that you can sit closer to a larger TV without noticing the pixels. So with HDTVs, the rule tends to be you can sit anywhere from 1.5 to 3 times the screen size (in inches) for the best experience.

If you know the size of the room you have already, where you want to sit, and where your new HDTV should go once you get it, you can figure out the size HDTV you should get.

  • Minimum size = Viewing distance/3
  • Maximum size=Viewing distance/1.5

Well I saw this tv on sale and I just couldn't let it slide. I had been looking for a second tv mainly for ps3 and computer use. I currently own a 23" samsung px2370 which is amazing however its just not big enough for me so I decided to try out this bad boy. First off I went to go check it out at my local box store and it looked great 3mil:1 contrast, 2.4 ms response, led backlit, usb 2.0, and its super slim with a nice cabinet. The main thing I noticed when I was at the store was how nice and uniformed the color looked and the angles of the tv were great. I bought the tv off of amazon straight through them with free 3-5 day shipping I believe it was and I actually received it in two days. I plugged in the tv and connected my playstation and head on it seems okay but not what I remember seeing in the box store and the viewing angles are horrible. If I am not right in front of the tv the colors almost look washed or worn out. I did some research on it and figured maybe it was something I was doing wrong maybe I had to calibrate the screen or something? No sir, unfortunately what I found out was that LG put different panels in these tv's some have what are called IPS Panels (IPS Panels are the nicer panels and is what I saw in the box store) and some have VA Panels (what I bought on Amazon, not saying its Amazon's fault its just LG not putting the same panels in all the le5300's). I am very displeased with the way LG could do this. Thats like porsche making there cars with hyundai parts. It just doesn't make sense that they could do that, I mean there should be some kind of regulations council to prevent companies from doing stuff like this.I am now hoping that Amazon will let me return the tv and refund me all my money.Read more ›

I've purchased two of these sets. Both of them were equipped with VA panels (there is a D in the serial #). Apparently LG uses a high quality S-IPS panel in some of their sets (has a W in the serial #) & some with the inferior VA panel. The input lag of a VA panel & horrible picture quality / viewing angles are not acceptable. AMAZON's customer service, as always was exceptional. They couldn't guarantee me IPS panels so the sets ended up going back & refunds were issued. AMAZON gets five stars, but LG would get 0 stars. If you are one of the lucky ones who received an IPS panel, congratulations. This would explain why the reviews are so varied.

This is an excellent TV, especially for the price point - beautiful, sharp colors, great viewing angle, very thin LED design, and light weight as compared to traditional LCDs. While I would generally prefer a larger screen, the space I bought it for - Armoire in a bedroom, would only accommodate 32in. This is a perfect size for a bedroom or smaller living space. I compared this TV against a leading brand 32in LED at a local store and while this LED was slightly thicker and heavier, the colors on the screen were much brighter and facial features much more defined than the competition - and best of all its less expensive. The design is very modern - sharp lines, thin LED. It states Silver Grey in the description, but the bezel and stand are glossy black. I like it so well, I just ordered another one on!

Pro -
* Excellent HD picture quality
* Bright clear image
* High contrast (LED backlight)
* Good off axis viewing angle - the farther from direct 90 deg you go the lighter the image becomes as contrast drops off, but still watchable at large angles.

Con (ish)-
* Lower quality SD picture (Less than 720p is noticeably inferior to other sets)
* Sound from onboard speakers marginal
* Colors look artificial out of the box (Requires several tweaks to gain realism)
* Too much white in some areas (blooming) until you really knock back the backlight and white levels.

Overall impression - For the money, if you feed the LG a good signal (720p or better), and tweak the colors and white levels, it's hard to beat the image quality.

I started by looking at everything in the stores. I ruled out Samsung because of the price even though I really like the quality of their image.
I had the LG32le5300 and the Sony KDL32ex500 in my office for direct comparison.
I chose the LG due to the higher HD image quality and overall good picture after a lot of tweaking and turning off some of the whiz bang features. SD images are lower quality than the Sony, but content is only getting better from all sources, not worse. For the money, if you feed the LG a good signal (720p or better), it's hard to beat the image quality.

I got the tv yesterday. The picture is fantastic. The facial features of actors are extremely clear.
I used a digital optical connection and cable to connect the tv to my stereo. The stereo is just an 85 W sony a/v with two speakers.
When operated this way, the sound is as good as the picture.
The paper owner's manual is a bit of a negative. A disc is included, but I haven't tried that yet.
I would definitely recommend this tv.
Amazon had the lowest price and free shipping.
