Which Size HDTV is Right for My Room?

File Size=17 KBHDTV 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

Got this, my first HDTV, for $749 total delivered. Seems like a great deal. Has the AA01 panel:

PROS: Very good HD picture, which becomes stunning with good source material (after calibrating the picture); excellent SD picture (better than the good CRT TV it replaced); tons of controls for picture calibration; streaming Netflix is great, the Pandora app has become my household's new source for music of all types, either through the TV speakers or piped to the stereo; ethernet makes upgrading firmware and internet apps very easy; lots of connectivity; easy to set up; light; swivel stand works well; power efficient; doesn't get hot; no noise or buzz; no dead or stuck pixels; has analog audio out jack (important for old A/V receivers); functions as an outstanding computer monitor (with DVI-to-HDMI cable); glossy screen helps picture and repels dust; can't even notice the red "Touch of Color" design.

CONS: Though black levels are generally very good, when the screen and room are both dark you can see some flashlighting around the corners and some bleedthrough of the backlight; very fast motion on screen will cause brief pixelization and loss of picture clarity (has to be very fast motion -- football and other sports look great); picture quality degrades quickly as you move off-center (though not as much as in some other LCD TVs); requires major picture calibration out of the box (I used settings found in reviews of this TV on the web, tweaked them a bit to preference, and the picture's much better, though it's hard to get it right); most of the current internet apps are useless; the factory preset modes are useless.

Overall it's a very good TV, with a picture that can sometimes be mesmerizing.

I'm not going to focus on picture quality, there are plenty of reviews for the other Samsung TV's in this class (LN**C6/5**)that will give you some idea. The short of it: Excellent picture quality, and superb build quality. Instead I'm going to focus on the extra "Internet@TV" features and it's media playback abilities. After all, that's the only reason to spend an extra hundred or two on this model right?

Some of the Internet@TV apps aren't as gimmicky as you might expect. Sure, there are some really awful games, some of which are trials. I certainly wouldn't expect to buy any games for this TV. Graphically, it isn't a capable machine. They sort of remind me of a set of mediocre 2D-only flash games with really poor framerates. So, game apps are out. That said, a small collection of the apps are actually very useful. Netflix works great, and did so right out of the box. Pandora is excellent, and unlike the online version, has no ads with a free account. The youtube app also works great, although searching for videos can be a pain using the remote since you have to use some sort of phone-like input method for typing. It does have T9 and a decent dictionary to speed things up. There are a couple of other video streaming apps that seem polished including Hulu Plus, Vudu, Blockbuster, and CinemaNow. Hulu Plus is still in beta, but after trying out a few of their samples, it seems well made. Vudu, Blockbuster, and CinemaNow are too expensive for my tastes, renting movies for 25%-30% of the price to own isn't worth it to me. And buying a digital copy from either place without also having a physical copy doesn't cut it. Especially if they are the same price.

There are twitter and facebook apps, but a lot of the use of those apps comes from communication.

Looked at many LCD TV's and the picture quality on a Samsung is hard to beat. Controls are easy to use on this set and hooking it up to a standard DVD player with HDMI cable produces a Movie theater picture response. Also if you subscribe to Cable and have an HD Cable Box...hook up with an HDMI cable and the picture is outstanding...Amazon took over a week for delivery (from TX)...shipping company was great in keeping me informed on exact delivery date....when it arrived the delivery driver brought it in, unpacked it, and made sure it was working....The best part was the overall cost...buying it thru Amazon saved me over $200 from the regular store price, and also had free shipping and no it was a savings all around.

I got my TV in August 2010 - setup was simple and easy. The TV looks great, and it has scored very well in most picture quality reviews. I paid the extra money for this model with the internet capabilities but probably shouldn't have. I've found really no use for most of the Samsung Apps - nobody really is going to check facebook or twitter on their TV anyway. Netflix is probably the big draw, but I currently am not using Netflix. I've tried some of the movie renting apps and they work fine. The DLNA works, and is cool for a few days, but I never really have a need for it. I got the wireless adapter for the TV and it seems to work just fine also. So I'll focus my review on my experience with what happened when something went wrong with my TV.

After three months, the TV stopped working. The whole screen went dead, I could smell a faint electrical burning smell, and no lights on the TV would work at all. I called Samsung, gave them the information for the TV and they contacted the local repair shop that would come out and fix it. This part all went smooth.

I talked to the local repair shop and described what had happened with the TV, and over the phone he diagnosed it as a power supply issue. In the past, Samsung has had ongoing problems with their power supplies, specifically the 2008 and 2009 models. Now, because the power supply went out in my 2010 model it could just mean that I was unlucky, but it could also mean that Samsung hasn't really resolved their power supply issues. It remains to be seen which of these is true. The main problem that I had was that it took weeks for the necessary part to come in. I talked with the repair guy about it. If Samsung has power supply issues why don't they keep samsung power supplies in stock?
