Sound and Vision Mag: optimal HDTV screen size

Matt Burns

Americans love big TVs. It's just in our nature and now that the HDTV is here, we have a great excuse to put that 60-inch set in our living rooms. Sound and Vision has a couple of charts that allow you to plot what size HDTV will be just right for you space. Just like we mentioned in our buying guides a few months back, it all has to do with what you watch. You can buy a huge HDTV, but if you put SD on it, you'll need to sit farther back to see the detail. Likewise, if there is a 1080i picture on your screen, you'll want to sit closer to it then if it was just 720p. There is a point where you just can't tell the difference between 720p and 1080i and they even have a chart showing that too.
