Which Size HDTV is Right for My Room?

Graphic for determining the right size HDTV for your room

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 bought this Vizio because I needed a decent sized tv that was relatively cheap but would also fit into a dorm room. The picture quality is excellent and the difference between this tv's 720p and other 1080p is negligible. At first colors looked a little washed out on my 360 but after fiddling with the tv/xbox settings it now looks superb. The size of the tv is also nice...it is lightweight and is super slim. The only thing that could be improved on is the speakers which imo are still a lot better than most tv's in this price range/size. It sounds a little hollow and could use more bass but overall it isn't too bad (it helps to turn off srs surround and switch to rock equalizer). Volume also isn't too big of an issue with this tv like on other tv's since this has front facing speakers as opposed to rear speakers. There is also very little lag or ghosting at 8ms and 60ghz refresh rates. Highly recommended if you are looking for a tv that is cost efficient and has good picture quality.

I purchased this LED for our guest room when the price was $299 at Target. They dropped the price down to $209 and I was able to get a price adjustment on the guest room TV and thought it was too good of a deal to pass up for a TV we needed for our bedroom. I am using over-the-air (OTA) feed for my guest room and DirecTV for my bedroom.

At $209 for an LED TV, I would normally say "beggars can't be choosers" and be happy that I got such a good deal. However, given the overwhelming glowing reviews for this product here on Amazon, I feel I should mention a design flaw to make sure everyone is aware of what they are buying. You can read the "positives" from the other reviews on here.

When watching dark programming or dark colors, you can see waves in the picture emanating from the center of the screen going both up and down. It is more evident in "Movie" mode and less in "Retail" mode. Likely do to the "Retail" mode being the most used in store displays. Those who currently own this model, give it a try. At first I thought it might be a singularly bad TV I bought. Only, I went to our guest room to see if the other TV pulsated with waves. Sure enough, the same thing.

This engineering flaw may not bother some people, but it does me regardless of the price. What is funny is my wife was the first to notice these waves. This, coming from a woman who initially couldn't tell the difference between an HD video feed and an SD video feed. Bless her heart, she got it right with this baby.

These were my first Vizio TVs. I will be keeping this model in my guest room but returning the model for my bedroom. We watch too much programming in our bedroom to look past this issue.

Again, maybe this warning will not deter someone set on a deal like this. I suggest going into Target and changing the picture setting from "Retail" to "Movie" to see for yourself.

Good luck!

The picture on this TV is far above my expectations. The image is bright, crisp and vibrant. The remote is a little unresponsive, have to press a couple times to get it to respond sometimes. The sound is mediocre, nothing to run and tell your friends about. All in all, this is a great tv, the flaws are so minor(IMO) when compared to the quality of the television.

For the most part I love this TV. It's thin, lightweight, stylish, and has good picture and sound quality. My only complaint is the volume...I like to watch TV rather quietly in my bedroom, and volume setting 1 is a bit too low while the next notch up (volume 2) is too high. So I have to choose between having to strain to hear the TV or being slightly annoyed at the higher volume.

Update: Another thing that's been really annoying me with this TV lately is that it produces some very noticeable after-images. I have a Tivo hooked up to it, and whenever I pause a program for more than a couple of minutes and then go back to it, there will often be a some ghosting or burn-in that lasts for nearly a minute (especially areas of white text...those last the longest). Annoying! I have a Sony Bravia also and it does not have this issue.

This tv is great! It is plenty big for a bedroom, and very crisp. The picture is perfect, the only flaw is the sound. The speakers in it could be a little better, but they are still not terrible. Overall, this tv was easily worth the cost. Vizio is doing something right and they keep me with them, this is my 3rd Vizio tv and they are all great.

I had a smaller Vizio that was great but too small for my room. I read many reviews about the 26in and they sounded good except some thought the sound quality was lacking. To my pleasure the sound is great as well as the whole TV. I feel this brand is superior compared to Samsung which is too expensive and then a Sony that a relative had and I didn't care for the picture quality as well as this. You'll love it!!

I bought this TV as a replacement for my bedroom TV (which was an old tube TV) and I love it. I do wish that it had a higher stand but all-in-all, that is my only gripe. I LOVE that when you do the set-up and scan for channels, it picks up digital channels that my other TVs didnt. It has great picture and good sound. I like that it has a sleep timer on it as well. Definitely would recommend for others to buy this TV. I bought mine at Target for the same price as it is listed for on Amazon.com.
