    I just bought the Hitachi 53UWX10B. What is the optimal seating distance from the TV.....9ft?

    Ummm, at whatever distance looks best to you? [​IMG]
    But seriously alot of it depends on your viewing habits. What will you be watching most? Cable/DBS? DVD's? HDTV? Usually it's a balancing act. While 9' is probably good for the lower end signals, you could get away with being closer for HD, because with HD theres almost no such thing as "to close". I sit 7-8' from a 55" widescreen HDTV which is just about right for me because 90% of what I watch is DVD and HD (mostly HD).
