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

We've had this Vizio 47 inch TV for just over a month now, and the family loves it. Setup took maybe 5 minutes, using HDMI hookups for incoming Digital cable, DVD, X-box 360, and Playstation 3. Took an extra 5 minutes to hard-wire the internet cable, and connect optical audio output to the Home Theatre system.

Picture quality is excellent, with the very high contrast ratio....Black is really black, unlike on my 1-year old Sony Bravia
2 Million:1 vs 30K:1 contrast ratios). Didn't really need to do much to optimize the picture quality. Blue-Ray movies played off the PS3 look awesome. Also found it was easy to adjust the lip-sync for TV sound to make it match the surround sound system.
I don't know if the LED lighting is what improves the picture quality or not, but it looks great.

The remote is easy to use, but seems to have a flaw, continually telling me that the batteries are almost dead, when they are hours fresh. Fortunately, everything still works just fine.

Only reason this review is not 5 stars is the limited choices on internet services. Would be nice to be able to have a browser for full internet access. However, Netflix, the main service we use works great. Have watched a bunch of movies, and the quality is almost always excellent, much better than we used to get using the Netflix app on the XBox 360.

I would recommend this TV to anyone looking for a good quality, affordable TV. I can't imagine what more one could get by doubling the cost, as many brands do.

I received this tv about 2 months ago and here's a list of pros and cons I can come up with.
Pros:
Picture is very crisp in HD
Picture can be viewed from almost 180 degree angle of view
Overall thickness of tv is amazing, less than 2"
Internet apps

Cons:
Tv remote will not work anymore, it had problems after about 3 or 4 days. The problem initially was that sometimes the keys on the top of the remote would not work, and then every now and then they would. After 2 months, the remote is completely out of commission. I can no longer use the Internet Apps, the Tv must be turned off manually from the side, and sometimes that does not work. If I'm watching Netflix the button on the side of the Tv will not work. So the only way to turn the Tv off is to unplug it. I called Vizio customer service and spoke with a tech and I went through all the unique troubleshooting techniques that they instruct. Still nothing worked so they are sending a new remote.

Other problems I have with this product is that the internet apps could be improved. The Showtime app is very limited as is some of the others. I really wish you could browse the net with an app such as google.
The sound from the tv is not very impressive at all.

In all honesty after reading about 10 other similar reviews, I would probably look past this product, and look for something of higher quality and maybe better reviews.

OK, so this review is based on ownership for one week. TV was VERY easy to set up and to hook up to our wireless G network (there is NO benefit from having a wireless N network), it is all about the speed of your internet and has nothing to do with the speed of your network since the internet speed will be the bottleneck, DSL will probably be to slow, the internet app VUDU said I should download movies in 1080P. The Bluetooth remote control that came with the TV controls our cable box (Comcast - Motorola), the remote is AMAZING!!! Net flick looks AMAZING!!! The other internet features are pretty good. I HOPE that the hulu deal that Vizio has done will be playable with this TV. The picture looks awesome!!! BUT there is better technology out there and local dimming is supposed to give you a better picture but it is more expensive. While watching the Home Network (house hunters) I did notice some blue bleeding from the top left corner, I am not sure if it was filmed that way or was the fault of the TV because I did not notice this blue bleeding any other time. Blacks look great, but I don't have twenty TV's next to mine to point out that another TV has better blacks, this TV has a 1:1,000,000 contrast ratio and I am very happy with the picture. I have not played much with the picture options, so the settings that come with the TV are pretty GREAT. I am also happy with the sound; yes there is no bass... its TV speakers.

OK, the TV looks Amazing in standard definition (I was very surprised because usually standard def does not look good with these new 1080P TV's) and High definition. I only watched a preview in 1080P through the internet with VUDU (did not want to spend the $$$ to watch more) and the TV looked amazing.

Verified Purchase
I had purchased a lower-end Samsung and was frustrated by it's "auto-smoothing" feature since there was no way to turn it off. Amazon let me return that one, and I bought this one. Wow, what a difference in picture quality! And of course I was able to turn the auto-smoothing feature off and it picture is great. It's very thin as well and looks great hanging on the wall. Having Netflix and Amazon movies built in, in addition to the wireless network connectvity is really convenient. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a 47" at this price point.
