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

Product Description

I was between buying this LN46C550 or a more expensive LED 3D Samsung TV. I am glad that I bought this one and saved a lot of money. This is an excellent TV, the picture quality is extremely good. I was concerned that the 60Hz would be inferior to 240Hz technology; but the picture is perfect, I can't really tell the difference! Do yourself a favor and save some of your hard earned money and buy thus TV instead of much more expensive ones; you'll be happy!

I purchased the Samsung LN46C550 HDTV last month and finally got it installed this week by professional installers and I must say that this HDTV is great! Black levels, color saturation, are all excellent, this HDTV even has a wireless link connection (must be purchased separately)! This is my first HDTV but not my first Samsung TV and I must say that in keeping with the tradition of high quality TV sets, this is another fine entry in Samsung's catalog!

I bought this TV from an Amazon Marketplace seller a couple of months ago. So I have had some time to experience it. I use this TV for watching a lot of sports (Hockey, Baseball, Basketball and Football) some programming - like House and The Simpsons (and sometimes Spongebob)- and some cable fare on Discovery, Science Channel, HGTV, TBS-TNT and so on. I find the picture to be absolutely perfect for sports. Bright, sharp, and clean. I don't have any blurring or "pixelating" or whatever it's called when I watch sports. So no, if you ask me, you don't need 120Hz or more to watch sports. Sometimes on non-sports cable programming I get some blurs and pixelation but as far as I can tell it's mostly when I am watching movies that weren't formatted for HDTV. For example, I saw periodic but noticeable pixelation when I watched the 1st Bourne movie, Terminator 2, and (I am embarrassed to admit) Speed on TNT. I also find some of the Discovery programs to sometimes get a little smudgy - very little and only periodically. I think that's weird because those programs are allegedly in HD. I am not sure they are. The channel might be in bonafide HD but maybe they record the programs using some other format and lose something in the conversion. I have no such problems on Fox, NBC or ABC either. And the last time I watched CBS for something other than sports I was still living with my parents - so no comment there. Heck, even Spongebob looks great on NickHD. Anyway, that is one the weird thing I don't like about the picture but I'm thinking it's a problem with the service and not the TV. One thing: after I got my Sony I thought that the Samsung picture looked less than great. That Sony Bravia picture is awesome (as long as you are watching from straight on and not from any angle).Read more ›

This is my second LN46C550. The first arrived with a strange audio problem where the sound would have interference for a brief second several times a minute. Kudos however to Amazon who quickly sent a replacement that is working fine.

I purchased this TV for the bedroom, and can compare it to the Samsung UN55B7000 55-Inch 1080p 120 Hz LED HDTV I have as our primary TV. The UN55B7000 was last years 120 Hz edge-lit LED model that is really a great TV except for the poor flashlighting produced by the edge-lit design, and its poor DLNA support. With all the frustration I had with that, I almost swore off Samsung for good.

So how does this LN46C550 compare to a TV that cost more than twice as much? Actually, pretty well. I have this connected to a Samsung BD-C6500 1080p Blu-ray Disc Player and the HD 1080p is rendered pretty well, however, this being a tube backlit LCD at 60 Hz, there are most definitely some differences in picture quality between the two.

VIDEO:

The fit and finish of the TV with its Touch of Color design (matches the UN55B7000) is nicely done. The firmware for this years TVs (the C series) is much better than last years. There is a plethora of configuration options for tuning display parameters. While the set comes with 4 preset picture modes, they are woefully over-saturated and inaccurate. Many of the dynamic adjustments are noticeable and intrusive, making them more bother than they are worth.

I had it set up on the stand and running in less than 15 minutes. I immediately plugged my laptop in through the VGA input and selected the "PC input" selector and within 3-5 seconds the screen was on 46 inches of glory. IT WAS SO SIMPLE, I DIDN'T have to do anything to get it to show up on the LCD TV, it just knew how to do it and how to display it correctly. I don't own a MAC but I know when I have used them they were so simple and intuitive. That was my experience with this TV. Samsung has figured it out. I was using "Netflix watch instantly" within another minute. THERE WAS NOTHING ELSE I HAD to do. I was navigating the web with a huge monitor.People say the sound on LCDs is not that good and I normally use a small stereo on my computer, but at half volume it was plenty loud!

This TV is beautiful too, what looks to be a glass/hard plastic/fiber bevel around the edge as well as the stand. It looks very complimenting to a taken care of home, nothing cheap about the tv except its price, which I got it for $[...] after shipping.

This is my second night with it. My wife and I were sitting on the couch with our wireless mini remote checking my emails and one of my [...] email advertisements came through and we bought something, like interactive TV, so simple. It doesn't feel like a computer anymore.
