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

The clarity of this TV is astounding. With this TV, I can honestly say that I feel like I'm just peering through a window when watching HD content. There are times, three weeks into our purchase, that my wife and I exclaim "it's so clear!" while watching shows on 1080i. This is a big deal to me because we have a 65" Pioneer Kuro PRO-151FD in the living room, but now I prefer watching on this unit.

Blu-ray at 1080p is just beautiful and jaw-dropping. I played Ratatouille using a PS3, and the hairs on the mice and blades of grass are so detailed. I also noticed that the SD commercials seems clearer, and on some of them, someone with an untrained eye might mistake for HD if the pillars were not present.

I haven't hooked it up with a receiver yet, but the sound of the unit is more than adequate for our bedroom. We only go to "8" on the sound, which is animated as a blue circle on the lower left as opposed to a bar at the bottom of the screen. The "8" setting corresponds to about 1 o'clock, so you can go really loud if you wish.

I connected a PC to the unit and it can go up to 1920x1080 pixels at 60Hz, which is the max for my graphics card on that particular computer. Although it can display all those pixels, you can notice shadowing on the images and text. Not enough to give you a headache, but just enough to be noticed. If you do not plan on hooking a computer to this TV, then this is not a big deal. Actually, it's really minor considering you can watch Netflix and it does DLNA (accessing media files you share on your network).

I have this connected to my router via Ethernet, and even Netflix came out clear. I saw Dead LiKe Me and it still had that peering through a window effect. We watched Food, Inc.

Just got this machine and I love it. Setup was easy, internet connectivity worked like a charm and the picture is so real it even movies look like live TV.
Speakers are not the best but a quick hook up to a real sound device solved that problem in about 5 minutes.
I would have given it 5 stars except for the speakers.
The menues are quick and intuitive and the remote is functional without a manual.
The whole TV out of the box without the stand is very light and easy to maneuver.
I mounted it on a wall mount, plugged it in, turned it on and was watching my Netflix in about 20 min, including packing up the trash.

After extensive research and trying out a couple sets, I've finally settled on the UN40C6500. This is Samsung's 2010 C series LED TV with Internet Apps. Here is my take on this set.


This is a really nice looking TV. 1.1" thick, handsome bezel with integrated controls, with a unique chrome legged stand make this a stand out. The set also comes with a cord so you can hang it on the wall like a picture.


The picture on this set are beautiful. The picture is gorgeous with great color reproduction and deep black levels. The edge-lit LED backlight is great, except for some uniformity issues in the corners that can be noticed with an all-black screen. During normal viewing, this is not noticeable to me. The movement with the default settings is smooth and "video like", the same as you'd expect on any 120Hz or 240Hz, but what is great about this set is that you can customize the dejuddering and smoothing to a level of granularity that I've never seen before. Standard Definition TV viewing is one of the best I've seen.


The sound on this set is on par with other comparable sets, in other words, "meh". If you are an audiophile you probably already have a sound system to jack this TV into. If not, you might consider a sound bar or some inexpensive surround sound speakers. However, I've chosen to stick it out for awhile, and am content with the standard setup.

Device Connectivity

I'm most concerned with the number of HDMI ports, which this set has plenty of at 4. I wish it had separate component and AV jacks, but alas they are combined, so in my situation, I can't have my Wii and DVD player plugged in at the same time. This won't be a problem once I get a Blu-ray player.

This TV is great. No complaints with the product. I upgraded from a 1080i to this one and I can notice a big difference from the 1080i to the 1080p in the clarity and depth of color on the screen. I had a 1080i-32 inch Sharp and it was a nice flat screen TV but after doing research and reading reviews on the Samsung I chose to upgrade to this model. I am really glad I did because the picture, when watching high def shows, is much better than my old TV. I haven't hooked my blu-ray player up yet and watched a blu-ray movie but I purchased an HDMI cable for it so I know it is going to be fantastic. My only problem was with the shippers Amazon used to deliver. (I chose the free shipping option). I won't go into details since I have since returned to this product on their web page and they are no longer offering it until further notice (one of the reasons is their shipping method). Mine was delivered by CEVA (total nightmare). They don't pinpoint the issue but my money is on the shippers and I feel good that they will take the effort to try and resolve the issue. Overall I really like my new TV and enjoy shopping at Amazon.
