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.

This HDTV is all we could have hoped for. It arrived this afternoon and we had it setup with all input devices connected to the wireless media hub in about 15 minutes. So far everything has worked beautifully. If there is any degradation of the picture due to the wireless connection I'm not able to discern it. The picture is stunning, DVD upscaling from our LG BD390 blu-ray player is incredible, HD channels all come in fabulous. Sound is synchronized to perfection.

The location of the wireless media hub is about 10 feet from the TV. It's within a recessed cabinet that houses our reciever, blu-ray player, DVD recorder, and cable HD DVR set top box. All devices are connected and outputting picture and sound without a hitch. So far we've sampled from several DVDs and a blu-ray disc. No problems whatsoever.

If you were looking at this item and wondering whether the wireless HDMI would function well, you need not worry. We have been waiting for this capability for some time and were rather apprehensive getting such an early model. If further TVs are produced with this capability I expect that they will catch on very fast. Having the freedom to put the TV well away from all your other input devices is a dream come true.

Well price for one. I grabbed it for $1,699 shipped.
I'm going to compare this to my other TV, I think that would make most sense. Samsung UN46B7000.

I'll start out saying that the black levels are not nearly as close to as the Samsung. Although it does have potential, i have yet to really dig into the settings seeing as I've only had it for about a week.

Sound quality is much better than the Samsung. But I didn't expect a bang form a 1.3" TV. The LG is obviously a thicker beast at around 4.3".

Ahh the WIRELESSSSS ohhhh... Well its pretty cool actually. Thus far i haven't had any issues with the signal. The TV is about 13 feet away from the transmitter at this point. One note though it does take a wee bit longer to "boot" about 13 seconds form the time you press power to seeing a picture. Switching between inputs is no issue. I hope my Harmony can handle that delay.

All this is based on a comparison to a Samsung UN46B7000

I have the 55LH85 for about two weeks now. The wireless used to be about 10 feet away from the TV strait across. It was perfect.

I moved the wireless box under the TV and i sometimes now get voice sync issues. It's a matter of placement issue i know it.

The TV it's self was... how do I put this... "eh" at first.
I've had time to play with the settings and get a chance to use the built it picture optimization wizard. It makes the TV shine. I watched District 9 today (again) and it was amazing. I was in the theater, without a doubt. Now for some 5.1 sound!

Note: The TV is not yet in Logitech's database. If you are planning to use a Harmony you'll have some trouble getting it perfect. I'm working on submitting my settings to the database.

During the advent of big screen TVs, I said I would replace my 27" Zenith color TV, purchased when I got married in 1969, when it quit on me. Well it didn't and I couldn't wait, so I bought a Sony KP5020 "coffee-table type" front projection TV in 1984. For the past few years, I have watched TV technology change to plasma and LCD's. Like the Zenith, I gave up waiting for the Sony to quit also and after months of research deciding between plasma and LCD, I chose LCD and further upon further elimination of brands, a LG.
I am into gadgets and that's my motorcycle group riding name. I wanted a bigger screen than 50", so after deciding on the brand, there were 3 LG's I looked at, the LG 55LH40, LG 55LHX and LG 55LH85. The so-called LED TV's, like the LHX, are only backlit LEDs, not true LED like OLED and even though not true LED, they are expensive. Sony sells a true OLED TV for $2500 for an 11" screen and they are sold out, but out of my range. 120 Hz vs 240 Hz? The eye can't tell that much difference for the price and LG 120 Hz has "True-Motion" to compensate for "judder". The same goes for 720p vs. 1080p. The eye can't tell much and I understand that HDTV transmissions are in 720p anyway, Blueray is in 1080p. What finally attracted me was the LG 85's separate wireless media box with almost an infinite array of inputs and outputs, all transmitted wireless. If you have your sound system in one area and TV in another area, but in the same room, you've got it made with this system.
I found out that Black Friday weekend prices on the TVs were a little lower than Cyber-Monday. I waited until Cyber Monday and lost out on good prices. What a hype. The TVs went up $100 for the 85 to $300 for the 40. Even Newegg went up.

Verified Purchase
I'm not the type of person that habitually complains or nit-picks or sends food back at restaurants, just to let you know before I review. I bought this tv from Amazon, paid extra for it to arrive in 2 days via express mail, it took 7 or so, but I was fine with that. Out of the box, this TV was impressive in both size and picture quality. I remained pleased and impressed for ~3 weeks, then out of the blue, it stopped working. LG provided me with the phone number to a certified repair center. I called and they informed me that they don't perform in-house repairs. This TV is 75 lbs, and is difficult to move. They sent out 1 man to pick it up in a ran down van. On the pickup ticket he wrote " SCRATCHED", I know for a fact that this TV was flawless when it left. It's been over a week and they still have my TV, I don't know what condition it will be returned in and I'm highly concerned. I feel that the TV should I've been replaced with a brand new one, being that I paid ~$2000 for it and it malfunctioned after only 3 weeks.
