Hi all
Tomorrow I mount my plasma to the wall :D. How high do I mount it? Should the center be the same as my eyes?? It is 50 in and seats are 18 ft back. I think a little to far:frowning: ??

Hate to point you into another forum, but....
Head over to AVS forum...they have a FAQ section on plasma TV's. Start there and if it doesn't take care of your needs...someone will be able to answer your question.

Good Luck
Ron

Brian,

Ho, ho. If you ask a question here, you're entitled to an answer here - even if it's too late :). And no bad word about the AVS from me, by the way.

The best location depends mainly on one's own taste, of course, but a generally good advice is to have the center of the screen slightly above the height of one's eyes. That will give the most pleasing image most of the time.

Now plasma screens and LCD screens (and most projection screens) have a special need: you cannot go too far away from the center axis, because they favour the direction perpendicular to their surface for emitting (reflecting) most of their light. This makes the above advice still the best, but one may want to test it first before you really fix the screen to the wall. No need to temporarily place it there: just place it anywhere and position your head at the same relative position you want for the definitive place. Then move your head more to the center, to see if the image is "way" better (clearer) - or not.

Apparently you already did all this - so good luck with your new screen!

Cees
