| 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.

My one complaint is that the sound is not what you would expect from a $3K new Sony. The sound is a cheap sound(tinny),and did not meet by expectations since it has 3 speakers built-in. I ended up adding on the $359 NX810 optional stand (Bushin)(SU-B550S) that includes a better 2.1 sound system to compensate. This one option proved to be worth every penny as the audio is now full and deep.
I am still playing with the video settings, but I have noticed that imperfections of the incoming signal are much easier to discern than my previous LCD. In fact on the same broadcast, a bad shimmer in the background, will go away and a brilliant fine detail picture comes on when they shift cameras like in a news broadcast
This NX has wired Ethernet and wireless connectivity, and the streamed HD video from Amazon is excellent. In order for you to stream Dolby 5.Read more ›
Moving on to the actual unit, here's the Pros:
- Stunning design. It is easily the prettiest TV in its price range. It doesn't have ugly, useless, transparent borders or colored bezels that glow or simply waste space. It is also reasonably thin, but nowhere near the paper-thin stuff you see from Samsung.
- Great menu navigation. This TV uses the standard cross-bar navigation I have first seen on the PS3, but somehow it works a lot better than on the console, perhaps because there are fewer items to scroll through, and they are easier to understand.
- Great image quality (minus one nasty problem I'll discuss later). It doesn't look any better (or worse) than a comparable set by Samsung or LG, but Sony's implementation of motion-blur reduction ("motionflow") appears to be much better than what I've seen on Samsung TVs. On other sets, people normally turn this feature off, and it gained the dubious nickname of "soap-opera effect". On this TV, the feature seems to work as advertised, and it doesn't get too much in the way (and, it can always be turned off).

Finally, Amazon's holiday 'Cyber-Week' discount pricing and combination bundle deals (3D accessory kit w/Alice 3D AND a 160GB 3D-capable PS3, both free) were way too good to pass up.
So in my usual meticulous way I checked out all the offers of comparably-sized sets on Amazon, as well as reviews online, and I even made a trip to our local Costco to check out their display sets, so I could see for myself the difference between regular LCD, edge-lit LED LCD, plasma, and DLP televisions. Of all of them, it seemed to me the Sony KDL-55NX810 blew the rest away, with only a few of the plasma models coming even close. Between the Samsung and the Sony 3D set-ups there in the store, I felt the latter had the superior 3D effects and shutter glasses, plus overall the Sony looked to be the better quality.
Unlike some folks who bought through Amazon, we had no problem with the Pilot freight shipping. They arrived right within the scheduled time, unboxed the TV, attached it to its base and put it on the cabinet we already had set and ready for it.Read more ›
