Wife finally gave me go ahead on upgrading our TV. I think a 57" would be ideal, we are about 11 feet from screen. She thinks NO WAY! it's to big, how about a 50" or 51". I start pulling out data on viewing angles and calculators on optimal distance and it's still NO WAY, it's to big. Had a Crutchfield catalog handy and showed her the dimensions of the Sony 51" and 57". I figured these number would be representative of most sets. The difference was 5 inches longer and 2 inches deeper. I thought I had her but still hanging tough. You would think I was asking for 5 additional inches of closet space. Help me convince her or convince me that there is not much difference between 51 and 57.
