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

I recently purchased this TV and wanted to give my thoughts. I went in looking for a 2D TV, thinking a 3D TV was out of reach.... fortunately the Thanksgiving sales were getting started, and I got this one for only a couple hundred more than what I had budgeted for a 2D TV. The reviews on this TV in 2D mode were good, so I figured 3D was almost free, and if I didn't like it, nothing lost.

The TV is quite attractive itself.... sleek and modern. It's not sporting the new "monolithic" look of the higher end Sonys, but it has a small bezel and won't looked outdated, if that sort of thng is a concern to you. It comes with a decent stand, and has all the connections you need. Some of the connections are on the back of the unit, so be advised if you plan to wall mount it.

The TV was easy to set up and get running.

In 2D, the TV is indeed impressive. SD pictures are very good, but the HD picture is pretty spectacular. Bright, crisp, great colors.... beautiful! If you're a videophile, you'll probably want to mess with the settings. I used some calibration settings a videophile friend recommended, and it does look good, but I'm not the most sensitive person to such issues.

Some reviews complain about limited viewing angles. I did notice some loss of contrast with off-angle viewing, but again, it doesn't really seem to be an issue with me, except at fairly extreme angles, where you can't see the picture anyway.

So how's the 3D? PRETTY DARNED IMPRESSIVE! I find the 3D very convincing. Unlike some other brands I sampled, I did not detect any crosstalk or ghosting. I'm really looking froward to seeing content developed with these kind of TV's in mind.

Ok, first of i took a risk on buying one because the bundle was so good an offer from Sony. Though like many i bought a sony bravia 40' 2 years ago, i always wanted to get a big screen to change the 42" westington house i had from 4 years ago. My finance and i went to sony style store just to check it out and it only took us 5 minutes to decide to get one after watching a few things on the screen in 3D. My finance was complaining about my Gizmo habits so i promised her i'm not buying anything but instead she wanted it more than i did.

Now about the TV..WOW the picture quality will blow your mind. Watching 3D with my Comcast HD Box by turn on 3D was more than i expected. Tried a regular blu-ray with 3D and i was like WOW. Played the free games that came with the purchase on PS3, it takes gaming to another level.
The only little problem i noticed is when you turn on the 3D it takes about 10 seconds for your eyes to get adjusted to the 3D. I heard a lot about getting headaches and feeling of throwing up but nothing of that sort happen to me nor my finance who wears glasses.

I know there is a hugh hole in my pocket now but its worth every line of thread it took out. If you had the money, id recommend you get on, if not then wait for the price to come down and you won't regret it.

Verified Purchase
Great product so far. We have had it since the middle of December 2010. Arrived in perfect condition. Set up was simple and connected to our Sony Blu Ray, 5.1 sound, and TIVO HD easily. Note that if you intend to use the 3d you will need to buy a new 3d blu ray, we purchased the Sony BDP-S570. The options for connections are impressive and with 4 HDMI we have everything connected. The remote control is a typical Sony remote designed by some engineer that has no experience living in the real world. But we use a Logitech Harmony remote and it works to control everything. Picture quality is very impressive, and we are glad we compared this to the Samsung and LG units. The screen is not the shiny style offered by Samsung and LG. Although those look a little better at Best Buy in a dark room we live in a loft with lots of light and this Sony has almost no reflection on the screen even in a sunlit room. Also note that this product is made in Mexico if you care about things like that not in China like some of the others. We purchased the Sony 3D starter kit with two glasses and the transmitter separately and the 3D is quite impressive. When the amount of 3D content catches up it will be nice to have this TV. The only issue we had was with the delivery company. Pilot Delivery services delivery scheduling is REALLY bad, and it might make us reconsider buying something like this from Amazon again. They only have online scheduling and they are not flexible at all. And although it may say you will get something on a specific date when you order online from Amazon that is really up to Pilot and they don't live up to what Amazon promises.
