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

Customer Reviews

The picture on this TV is great!!!
Had to call multiple times to customer service during each repair request.
Not so happy
Manufacturers like Sony and Samsung make way too many units.

Set up my unit on 5/21 which I bought from a brick/mortar store (sorry Amazon!), after researching the hell out of it. My equipment includes a WDTV Media Player (HDMI w/optical out), Nintendo Wii (analog), HD HTPC on the make, and Denon AVR-590(two optical audio inputs and three HDMI inputs).

- Great picture out of the box - will be fine-tuning things later, but early indications are very positive. Several units had more features but PQ suffered. With so many blu-ray players and HTPCs that stream Netflix/Pandora, don't get lured in by feature-laden units that fail to deliver great PQ.
- Media Play - plug in any USB or HD into the unit to watch video, listen to music, and view pictures.
- Input panel is easy to access - swivel base is a real plus.
- The manual states that it can connect to a home network and "can access the Internet through your LAN connection" - this one might be interesting if I could get a third party wireless USB stick to work. So far, no success - I'll report back on this one.

- No memory card access - will attempt access with a card reader.
- Cannot tell unit to show subtitles only when muted - 7 different versions available, but none of them allow you to read subtitles when it's muted.
- Lack of widgets - I really wanted the web widgets, but wouldn't sacrifice PQ. With the new HD HPTC almost finished and running WMC 7, it will interesting to see if WMC will be enough.
- Sound effects and music sound great through Denon, yet dialogue is sometimes difficult to understand - I suspect that is due to my inability to read the language known as Denon and to configure it accordingly.

I purchased this TV brand new about three weeks ago. I found it to be an excellent plasma for the size and price. The color and contrast are great. I have to disagree with the other reviews saying this TV has a loud buzzing sound. Mine doesn't buzz at all. The TV looks great with HD cable, DVD's, XBox 360, etc. I would purchase this again and would recommend it to anyone.

The only thing I would caution anyone about is the speakers. Mine do not buzz, but they aren't great. They seem too quite and there is hardly any bass (comparing them to my older 42" Panasonic Plasma). Even after changing the equalizer, the sound is still weak. If you do not have any sort of home theater system, you may want to consider one.

I was hesitant at first to buy a product without any reviews but I really needed a tv so there it goes.....
First one was delivered damaged but i got a replacement in about four days.Tv looks good on or off.I think it has really nice colors and after messing with it for a day or so I got it where I wanted it.I think the colors look better than on an LCD.Being a plasma I was a little worried about the screen letting out some heat and consequently the energy consumption but I was impressed once I hooked it up to a kill-a watt monitor.I Normal mode (after calibration) it takes between 130W to about 170W which I think it's impressive for a 58 inch plasma.Also it emanates just about as much heat as a new lcd which is very little.I hooked it up to my router and now I can stream movies and pics to it from my laptop wirelessly(wired from the tv to the router but wireless from the router to my laptop).I would buy again.It does buzz a little but I can't tell unless I sit a couple of feet from it.

If you get this TV when it is on sale, it is an incredible deal.

Some of the greatest features of this TV that separates it from the pack is the ability to view things through your computer network, pixel shifting that cannot be seen by the naked eye (protects your screen), and the ability to play videos/pictures from a USB memory stick.

However, the big down-side to this TV is the "buzzing" sound that several other people before me mentioned. I bought this TV because one reviewer mentioned that the "buzzing" problem was solved in this new March 2010 model C version; I can guarantee you that this is not the case. When I contacted tech support about this, I found out that plasma gas (or Samsung's at least) is affected by altitude. It is for this reason why you will never find a plasma screen on an airplane. So if you live closer to sea level, you will not have a buzzing or it will be so minute that you will never hear it. But if you live in Denver or Albuquerque, you better crank up your surround sound system to drown out the noise (and if you are up high in the mountains like me, it is LOUD). There is nothing technically wrong with the TV so there is nothing to fix; it just does not agree with where I live.

But again, if you get it on sale at an incredible price, then it might be worth putting up with the buzzing.

This is a replacement for my first order which arrived with a cracked screen. Seems like I'm not the only one to experience that. Thankfully, this one was undamaged. Amazon, gets top marks for customer service. They were very understanding and helpful in getting the replacement on the way. Why buy anywhere else?

First off, this TV looks great and has a wonderful picture. It replaces a Sony, 50" 3LCD, which was only four and a half years old. It also had a top-notch picture, but we wanted to upgrade and our kids were happy to get the Sony.

I was kinda worried that I might get one that buzzed, but this one is very quiet and so far (3 days) we are delighted we chose this TV. I did a lot of research before ordering. Trying to decide whether to go with Plasma, LCD or LED. After viewing this baby our decision to go with Plasma, was a good one. Looking forward to football season now.

We have the signal coming through a Yamaha, receiver via HDMI. It's great to be able to get rid of all those other cables and it's as simple as the push of a button to switch to/from TV speakers to surround system or to Blu ray. I would have given this sweetheart five stars but nothings perfect.

If you are looking for a really good plasma in this size I highly recommend you look closely at this one.
