RECOMMENDED VIEWING DISTANCES (MINIMUM AND MAXIMUM)

Wide-screen televisions showing high-resolution content and HDTV look better than regular sets, allowing you to sit closer and experience a more immersive, theatre like picture.

With wide-screen sets showing blu-ray, streaming content or HD (high-definition), you can sit as close as 1.8 times the screen's diagonal measurement and still not notice much of a loss in quality, while sitting farther away than three times the screen size means you're likely to miss out on the immersive feel. Here's a rundown of minimum and maximum recommended viewing distances for wide-screen sets.

SIZE AND YOUR ROOM

Generally, 32-inch and smaller television sets are great for bedrooms or guest rooms but too small for the main living room. Television sets with bigger screens are large enough for the whole family to enjoy and will probably be too much for most small bedrooms.

If you're mounting the set inside an entertainment center, be sure it fits in every dimension; also, leave an inch or two on all sides so that the TV has enough ventilation. If you're getting a bigger set, you may want to consider a dedicated stand; many television makers sell matching stands that increase the aesthetic appeal of their hefty boxes.
