HDTV size vs. size of room?
« on: November 11, 2010, 09:07:31 PM »
I'm in the market for a new HDTV, probably will go with something that's 1080p with at least a 120 Hz refresh rate. The tv will be wall mounted. The room is set up like this:


                              <------------------------------------- 16 feet -------------------------------------------->     
                               ___________________________________________________________
                              /                                                     wall mounted tv                                       /
                              /                                                                                                                     /
                              /                                                                                                                     /
    Fireplace            /                                                                         to kitchen ---------------->     /     
                              /                                                                                                                     /
                              /                                                                                                                     /
 11 feet wide         /                                                                                                                     /
                              /                                                                                                                     /
                              /                                                                                                                     /
                              /                                                   couch here                                                 /
                              ____________________________________________________________

I know, I know, it's the artwork of a 6 year old on the computer.

Basically, I'm trying to figure out what size tv will be best for the room I have. The room is 16 feet long and 11 feet wide; the distance from the couch to the tv will be around 9 - 10 feet.

I don't want to get something too large that will cause headaches from us watching it. Thanks in advance.

Isn't the rule that one third of the distance from eyes to screen is close to ideal for screen size?

Told ya so!


No bigger than 44" would fit the bill.
