How To Determine How Big A TV You Should Get?

How To — By

In the past, standard-definition TV had a resolution such that you would be comfortable watching the TV from a distance of 3-6 times the screen size (in inches). That rule no longer applies with high-definition TV. With HDTV, you get a better resolution that allows to sit closer, to a larger TV, while being just as comfortable.

With standard-definition, being too close would mean noticing all the pixels. With HDTVs, that doesn’t apply anymore. Typically, with HDTVs, you can sit anywhere from 1.5-3 times the screen size (in inches), and still get an excellent experience.

So if you know the size of your room, you can figure out the size of the HDTV that you should get. Plan ahead though! Figure out where you want to be sitting (where the sofa should be) and where the TV will be as well. Once you know the size of the room, just use this simple rule:

  • Minimum size = Viewing distance/3
  • Maximum size=Viewing distance/1.5
