I'm new at this. Sorry if I submitted the wrong post before.
I AM PLANNING TO BUY ASAP A 27" SONY WEGA AND I WILL BE SITTING 8.5 FT FROM THE SCREEN. DO YOU THINK THIS IS A SUFFICIENT SCREEN SIZE?
IT WOULD BE TOUGH TO AFFORD A 32"
PLEASE RESPOND TO
[email protected]
THANK YOU!

I think a big part of veiwing distance is personal perference.

Whats the best part of a movie theatre? Middle mid or middle back? I perfer to sit right smack in the Middle of a theatre, usually.

Anyway, I suggest heading to you nearest Circuit City or equivalent and just sorta test the tv's out. Pace out your distances etc.

Also I notice I get used to what I'm watching.

Meaning 25" or 27", I usually get involved with the screen and tune out everything else. So couple of inches doesnt really matter to me. I think its the same with most people. As long as the screen isnt abnormally small, you'll probably get used to it.

And instead of directing answers to your query to private e-mail addresses, expect public answers on this public board!

Thank you! This is pretty good.
I guess becuz there's a maximum and a minimum, it goes, to some extent, to personal choice...providing you don't exceed the max.
Cheers!
