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

Why LCD?

LCD displays deliver increasingly higher contrast ratios along with bright, crystal-clear images that look great in a variety of lighting conditions. They're available in sizes that fit any space, at prices that meet any budget. Many LCD HDTVs also have new features that can significantly reduce power consumption. So whether you enjoy movies, sports or video games, there's an LCD HDTV just right for you.

Picture quality is excellent.
The 240Hz feature is one that really sold me, as the action plays in football and the fast moving cars in nascar are clear without blur like the 60Hz.

We have been shopping for a 37in LCD TV for the bedroom for a few weeks and have checked out costco and Best Buy.

Quick Pros:
Good Connection Options, Good Resolution, Bright Image, 240hz Refresh Rate, 1080P, Attractive Design, Excellent sound, and OneCall Sales Staff.

Quick Cons:
LG Customer Service Mediocre at best! Set Up lousy considering NO Printed Manual

First Off.... OneCall is awesome! Best Price (and I searched all authorized dealers I could find at the time) Most Friendly sales staff. Customer service even responded by email long after hours!!! Please NOTE: OneCall IS LISTED as "more buying choices" on Amazon.

Now on to the TV: Television arrived.
Unboxed, hooked up all cables... then with the side button I tried to turn it on.. no such luck... I then tried the remote... no good there either. Figured I had a DOA set.. I searched for a manual... none found.. just a CD of a manual. Problem was:
1. This was a gift...person getting gift has no computer, therefore no way to view CD.
2. I was nearly 56 miles round trip to my house to have access to a computer to print up manual from CD.
3. Quick Start booklet was included with indications of all connections EXCEPT location of the power switch!!! The "standby" switch on the side of the television is NOT the power switch.

I found this switch accidentally after disconnecting all the cables to return the TV set... I reached under the set and felt something "click" What do you know.. a rocker master power switch.... You know.. the one NOT listed in the quick start booklet or indicated by an international symbol or words on the front of the set indicating it's location. (I had two others read through the few pages of the quick start booklet to see if I missed it)

After turning it on... and pressing the "standby" switch.. I was able to start the setup...

UPDATED: 11/28/2009; 12/31/2009.

Pros: Extensively customizable, plenty of inputs on back and on side, fits where our old 36" tube TV did, got a great price on Amazon (I think it was a steal!)

Cons: Extensively customizable, too many options for picture and sound to get a quick handle on them. There should be a course (maybe by that Vidoe Professor guy) on what everything means and how the different settings impact your viewing experience.

The TV was easy to set up once it arrived. The shipper (Pilot) was supposed to call us to schedule an appointment for delivery on 11/25 - but they never did. Instead, I ended up calling Amazon to get the shipper to fullfill their obligation in a timely manner. Others have said that the shipper unpacks the T.V., puts it together, and tests to ensure it works. No such thing here (Dallas area), but I was able to get them to take our old 36" behemoth tube TV out and off of the entertainment armoire's TV shelf. They just set it down on the floor, but that was 90% of the work.

There are so many options in setting up and fine tuning the TV, I don't really know where to start. So, as soon as we powered it up, there was a guided setup to get the clock and all of the local channels into memory. There are even independent settings to choose whether to show the Red and Blue power indicator lights during Power Off and Power On states! That makes no difference to me, but my son likes to have the room completely dark and those lights (on the lower right corner of the TV) were distracting to him. No problem, just turn them off in the options and everyone is happy!

For each input on the back, you can independently set and remember all of the picture and sound quality settings.

This installation involved removing a tube-type TV and replacing it with the 37 inch LG flat screen. I did read the instructions two times before the TV was removed from the box. I used it again for set up. The on screen help was fine. I had to make some trials of various setting before settling. Nothing was very difficult. I am amazed how well thought out the on screen displays were. Some displays and language was unfamiliar, but with time they were understandable. I love having a TV with this much quality in my small viewing room. Thanks Amazon.com and LG. You made this 70 year man happy. The installation even impressed my girlfriend.

I bought this on black friday for an amazing price. I was in the market for an HDTV for a few months and was looking for something below $700, at least 120hz, 1080p, and had a good panel. When I saw this beauty up, I nabbed it as soon as I could pull out my credit card. This set packs one nice S-IPS panel. It has a huge color range and can get extremely bright to the point of looking almost real in outdoor scenes.
On to the review:
As much as I can say that I love this TV (mostly due to the price), it's not quite perfect. For one thing, the black levels aren't exactly the best I've seen on an LCD. It's most apparent when watching a movie with black bars added to keep aspect ratio and in dark movie/video game scenes.

I use this as a PC monitor, so I can't say anything about how this does on broadcast television. I figure with all the bells & whistles features this thing has, it could make a standard def signal look pretty damn decent over 37".

I don't use the speakers as I have a system, so I can't comment on the audio. I'm sure its on par with however HDTV speakers sound.

I have this hooked up via HDMI to my PC. When first turning it on out of box, the picture quality was very poor, as were all the presets for this. I couldn't get it to look good until I turned all the advanced features down to low/off; this includes gamma, black level, dynamic contrast, and edge enhancer; although, it does look better (to me) with color gamut on wide. I then turned contrast, brightness, sharpness, backlight, and all that down to 50. When I did this, it looked AWESOME. I turn the backlight up and down depending on ambient light and if I want it to look brighter for something (videogames/movies).
