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

12/11 UPDATE: I've had this set now for about 16 months and I'm still very happy with it. I managed to buy a replacement remote control that works perfectly so switching inputs is less of a chore.

I eventually sprang for a Sony receiver so I could hook up the sound to it, but it's passthru HD signal doesn't offer a resolution my Mini Computer can use. Not the TV's fault, but frustrating all the same. I managed to work around it with a different sound input so I now have a good sound system hooked up and am happy with it.

The ElGato EyeTV is working really well to record over the air High Def local channels. It's the only way to go if you have a Mac running your video. Unlike TiVO you can jump ahead any number of seconds you want without having to fastforward and guess. HiDef is spoiling me to the point where I can't watch SD anymore. Gonna have to get a dish eventually for the cable channels I guess. . .

Bottom line is that I wouldn't hesitate to buy this again. My sister's 1080 picture is about 15% crisper than the LG at about a 30$ higher price I'm more than content with 720. Football and basketball games look fantastic on this set.
________________________________________________________________________________________

- Well, it's October 2010 and I've had it for a few months so am offering some updates.

#1 Overall, I like it a lot. I use it for my standard def ancient Replay DVR, Wii, PS3 and computer.

- Still like it a lot. The Replay DVR is history, replaced by a newer EyeTV that records HiDef over air channels. The standard def picture is growing more and more quaint. Where I have the option I'll watch the better HiDef picture.

It was finally time to upgrade from my old 32" 720p lcd and I, for the first time, began considering plasma. I found an amazing deal on this set for $610 after tax and jumped at the opportunity. So far I am very pleased.

VIDEO:
Picture quality absolutely destroys my old lcd. The colors are vibrant while watching HD content and the black levels are so much more redeemable. SD content looks noticeably more pixelated at close distances than the smaller set but that is to be expected.

AUDIO:
I haven't given the speakers much of a test as I use a 5.1 audio system but they sounded adequate for the first few minutes I heard them.

APPEARANCE:
Set will produce noticeable glare if in a well-lit room but that is to be expected. The bezels are sleek and very thin which I love, the stand is easy to assemble, swivels and works as expected. The set is super thin!

OVERALL:
While I am still in the break-in period, I am thus far impressed by this set. It was a huge, affordable upgrade for me and I can't wait to give it a run with some games and blu rays.

Ordered this on Monday, and it had an estimated delivery of next Monday, but it arrived in 2 days which was a very pleasant surprise. I must commend the shipping company, Pilot, on their courteousness and efficiency. 2 guys brought this tv in, unboxed it for me, and attached the stand upon my request. They asked a couple times if I needed help hooking up all my devices, but I knew what I was doing so I politely declined. Good job Pilot!

I have yet to do any in depth calibration, but as soon as I got that sucker plugged in I had my xbox connected through HDMI and set the TV on game mode. Picture was amazing right off the bat and there was zero lag on CoD MW2 which is a huge plus for me. Everything looked very crisp and smooth and with 50" I could actually see many details on the other side of the map without a problem.

Once I finished that I switched to Movie mode and put in a Blu Ray of District 9. Wow. I upgraded from a 32" 60hz LCD, and once I saw the video on this new TV my jaw dropped. I was halfway tempted to get a 1080p version of a 50" plasma, but at an extra $300-$400 it was not worth it. I set up my parents 1080p TV right next to mine and from about 8 feet away you cannot tell which is 1080 or 720. Very happy I made the decision of 720p, but any larger than 50" 1080p would be worth it.

This TV is also incredibly thin, at a inch or so around the edges then gets slightly thicker to 1.5 or 2 in the middle. It definitely looks like a $1000+ television, but at $702 this was a steal.

Very happy customer!

Just wanted to post a short review, to say a few things that havent been said up to this point with this TV.

1. The value is GREAT. Cant beat the price for the size and working thru Amazon is great as far as customer service, delivery, etc. Second to none right now at 50 inches.

2. That being said, the picture quality really isnt there. If you dig deep online you will see reviews placing this TV in an "average" catagory. I think that is a bit of an overstatement. I have owned several HDTVs and this one is likely the least satisfying from a picture standpoint. Its not the color, which can be adjusted. Its really a "crispness" issue, not really sharpness or brightness, just something lost at the color transitions and edges. It is likely a software issue more than anything - IMHO. I wont be sending it back tho - it still looks good enough for me and the family - but I wont be using it for a formal Theatre setup
