Getting The Picture: A HDTV Primer For Buyers
And don’t forget ...
Generally speaking, you should sit three feet away from the TV for every foot of screen height. If the screen is two feet high, for example, you should sit about six feet away to get the full effect. If the room has a lot of ambient light, make sure the TV you’re considering, particularly if it’s LCD or plasma, is designed to deal with it. Otherwise, the screen could look washed out. Oh, and if you’re thinking about mounting the TV on the wall, you’d better really like where you put it, otherwise you’ll have to fill the holes when you move it.
NOTE: Prices are MSRP. Our recommendation: Check the prices for these TVs at various online outlets before heading to the showroom.
