    LCD Optimal Distance Question.

    Can anyone tell me the optimal distances that you should sit from 32" and 37" lcd tv's to get the best picture?

    Thanks boys and girls, Happy new year.

    Its a matter of choice also what resolution you are running at 6/8 foot should be minimum on these size sets

    37" about 8-9 foot should be ideal. If you are viewing HD content, you can get away with being a bit closer.

    I purchased the sony v3000 from JL with the ps3. It is 40", I am about 9-10 foot away. I am not sure whether it is too big for the room. Does anyone know the ideal viewing distance for a 40"?

    Thanks

    6 feet for 32" & 7 feet for 37" at 720P farther for standard tv, copy and pasted from avsforums below.

    no as crt will not be 720P m8 so you need to be nearer to see the benefit of the HD 720P resoulution, to far back and it will be like watching standard broadcast, 4 to 5 feet i would think would be about right.

    Yes, more or less, part of the CRT Screen is hidden behind the outer casing, so visible screen is as you suggest on an LCD.

    lol i love the way that daytrader has listed out distances for screen sizes of up to 100"... might come in useful for sme i guess!
