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

So first the good.

It looks great, very slim, clean look. In bright conditions the picture is great and I really don't feel as though this running at 60Hz degrades the quality at all so don't worry about that.

The bad..
Flashlighting - in a dark environment like watching a movie in the dark this set exhibits horrible flashlighting - the light from the leds in the edges leaks onto the screen washing out the picture. Deal breaker so I returned it and got the 6800 which can dim these leds enhancing contrast and eliminating the flashlighting.
Also of note is that the controls on the TV are impossible to make out because they are black/grey on the black bezel.

So if you can find one that doesn't leak light or only watch with the lights on it will work for you, if you want to watch in the dark you should go a different route.

We purchased this TV after a great deal of research and many visits to local stores to compare HDTVs. The picture from this unit stood out as best-in-store at two of the stores we visited. We spent a lot of time being concerned about going with a 60hz unit due to the fact that all stores sales people were pushing the 120hz. or even 240hz. For our typical use, we finally decided that we would be absolutely waisting money on the quicker refresh cycles. Now that we have the TV and can compare it to our Sony XBR4 we are very pleased that we saved the money. The picture is great and high-speed motion such as in football does not appear much different between our two sets. The TV also has a cinema setting for the issue of a 24 frame per second film, if anyone is worried. The quality of this HDTV is very obvious out of the box, particularly when one sees the thick glass stand that comes with it. The limited amount of assembly required is very simple, but you will need two people to assemble the TV to the base. The setup was very simple and if you don't know the answer to questions like what type of channels you have coming from your program source, the TV will detect what ever is available and automatically delete any channels that are encoded and thus not actually viewable without a cable box (for example). i would rate the sound from the TV built-in speakers as acceptable for normal TV watching but certainly not great if you want dynamic theater type sound. Obviously you can connect to a receiver or a sound bar if you will want that type of sound. This is a fantastic HDTV!

Amazon was the best place to purchase this TV from a price standpoint and their delivery was as scheduled and excellent. I was very pleased with the delivery and the clearly unopened box was flawless.

So I helped someone shop for a new HDTV who was upgrading from a 10 year old 27" CRT. They wanted the newest technology and something that would last them at least another 10 years. I picked up this model at a big box B&M store for $900. Everyone is pretty impressed with the performance of the set. Picture quality is stunning. Size is quite large... the TV itself also looks elegant. Here are a couple of pros and cons...

-super high contrast, incredible brightness compared to other LED TVs
-super sharp, crisp picture. Miles above the competition in my opinion.
-1.2" thick! Think about that... it is unreal!
-anynet detects source inputs and changes them automatically, and you can control them with the tv remote. no need to put in codes or anything... tv remote controls the sony blu ray player I picked up.
-very customizeable picture settings
-audio output- both 3.5mm and toslink (although rca output is missing unfortunately)
-4 HDMI inputs for all your 1080p toys

-couldn't tell in the store but the screen is very glossy and picks up a lot of window reflections and lighting glare. Be careful about where this tv is going to be placed. Really wish it was a matte finish
-Ony one component and one composite input, and they overlap. So you cannot run a component AND a composite input at the same time... this was very misleading and it took me a while to figure out there was a composite input at all!
-Hard to tell what the actual contrast ratio is, I wish that tv companies were required to give a consistent contrast ratio rating without factoring in all the "dynamic contrast" b.s.

I just got this lovely thang yesterday. I have not played with it that much, but I have done enough to provide a decent review. My main concern with this purchase was that it is 60 Hz. Now that there is 120 and 240, I was not sure if getting 60 was smart. I read a review some where that pointed out that most PC monitors are 60 Hz. My 25 inch monitor is 60 Hz and the picture looks beautiful when I'm playing games or watching movies so I said wth. Last night I watched a NBA game and put on a few movies with intense action scenes... no image blur whatsoever. I love the look of this television and the fact that it is super thin. The controls on the tv itself are touch controls. There are no actual buttons to press. As far as HD goes...the picture, color, and clarity are unbelievable. The picture is so detailed that some of your favorite stars don't look so hot once you see them in HD. I will be purchasing some sort of sound system for this tv. My PC has a Logitech 2.1 speaker system and I have become spoiled. The sound from this tv is decent but falls way short of what I like. The only real complaint I have about this tv is that the allshare feature which allows you to stream music and video from your PC requires a Samsung USB wireless link which is a little over $70 (unless you hardwire it). I'm sure a regular wireless USB adapter could have done the trick but Samsung forces you to use theirs (which they fail to mention). I really feel that wireless should have been built into the tv in the first place but enough with that rant! Finally, I have to give it to Amazon. Their price was the best anywhere...that's not including the fact that there was no shipping charge.
