I just received the go ahead to purchase a rear projection TV from my wife. YEA!!! The room we will be sitting in is about 12' 4" wide. With a couch directly in front of the TV, I'm thinking I'm going to lose about 18" on the above dimension. Depending on brand of Projection TV, I'm thinking I will lose another 20" to 30" due to depth. So I'm thinking my eyes will be about 9' from the front of the TV. Does anybody know the right size of TV I should be looking for in this situation? I have been out of the hunt for a rear projection the last year, but I did like the pioneer regular series 53" not the elite, but I think price is a issue. oes anybody have any opinions as to brand & models? Thank you!
