So it doesn't look too big from 10 feet? I'm 11 feet from my TV, and can't decide between the 70 and 80 incher

The only people that can tell you how big a TV should be for you... are you (and people you live with).

For me, an 80 would be gigantically, massively too large at 10 feet. Even a 70 would be too big at that distance, albeit just slightly. For Suzook, the 80 would be fine at 10 feet.

Is he wrong? No. Am I? Also no.

The only answer for you is your answer.

There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working.

My lip-synch issue got resolved when I added a 200 ms delay in the Sony ES receiver.

By the way, from distances of as little as 9 feet, the television looks great, and the only thing better would be something bigger.

Thanks,

Nick

I was a little over 10 ft for my 70 and loved it at that distance. My 80 now sits in the same place as the 70 did. I feel no need to move the couch back. The 80 is mind blowing ! But I agree with Rogo, to each his own on distance.

I just don't like exchanging TVs - unless there's something wrong. I have 55HX929 right now - which will be going in the bedroom. And I really want to avoid getting one TV, and then sending it back for another one. So all feedback is appreciated as far as distance

I say go big! It is personal though- some like to sit in the front of the theater, others in the back. Why don't you just bring a tape measure to the store that sells the T.V. and measure your actual viewing distance?

There's angle of view and visual acuity to consider. I go with the latter. If you have normal 20-20 vision then about 10-1/2 Ft. is the correct distance for an 80" TV showing 1080P. At that distance you can JUST see all the detail that is there. Another words, it's as sharp as reality. If you sit closer, the picture will get gradually softer. If you sit further back, say 16 Ft. you are not seeing all the detail that is there. In fact, at 16Ft. you can't tell the difference between 720P and 1080P.
I had a 55" set previously and I sat about 7 Ft back. The angle of view with my new 80" set at 10.5 Ft. is virtually the same. I have MAYBE one foot further I can move back if I need to but I think I'm basically maxed out size-wise (not a bad problem to have).
Bought a new mount today which I'll put up on the week-end. It's a Sanus VMDD26b. It's built like a tank (weighs 60 Lbs.) It's got everything including Tilt, swivel,extend up to 25", and rotate +/-6 degrees. Quite a difference from the one I bought from Monoprice, but then again, it cost a lot more. JR Electronics in NY has about the best price.

I was thinking there might be some trick to it, like the Samsungs where a renaming of the mode/input is required.

I'm sure the VGA input is full range RGB as that is the spec but I don't want to go that route as the image is degraded vs. HDMI.

Thank You,
Jason

Hmm I meant I got an image. I'll do the test patterns on Friday when my buddy Kevin and I will calibrate this awesome set.

Its WAY bigger than our 65 inch, but as they say, it's personal preference. When we first got it, I did think it was a bit big, but now I am LOVING IT! I don't think we'd go larger in our room however..

I am really looking forward to hearing how this mount turns out. My TV is being delivered Friday and I am looking for a good swivel type mount. I found one for 50 bucks less, but am concerned it may not be as durable. It's max weight is 130 and the TV weighs 122.4. Here it is:

Let me know what you guys think of this mount. I like it but am concerned it may not be strong enough. Thanks.

I am responding to this from my living room on my Sharp 80" set and HTPC hooked up to it. I just finished installing my new Sanus VMDD26B bracket about an hour ago. Easy install and really well engineered. Holds the set - no problem. I really think you could hang about 500 Lbs of this thing and it would hold it. The bracket you are considering looks pretty weak to me. Only one arm that looks almost identical to the Monoprice bracket I tried (except it had 2 arms). I am almost certain you will be very disappointed with that bracket. It's a little early to give a full report on the Sanus bracket but so far I am REALLY impressed with it. The angle setting part, in particular, is really well thought out and executed. They say you get what you pay for but in this case I think I got a lot more!!

In hindsight, that is probably the one I should have tried first. It looks a lot stronger than the 8588 I bought. My only real concerns with the 6517 model are that it is also only designed for 16" wall stud spacing and perhaps the tilt mechanism (VERY insecure with the 8588). I'm still glad I spent a few extra dollars on the Sanus. After trying the cheaper model, I can really appreciate the engineering and build quality of the Sanus VMDD26b (built for up to 24" wall studs).
I wonder how much this bracket weighs. It looks quite heavy.The Sanus one weighs over 60#.

Peerless makes on that could hold a tank. I had my 6010 on it and it handled it without even breaking a sweat

...because I'm a plasma bigot/zealot, and will only get a plasma...I've been looking at upgrading my 58" Sammy to a 64/65" Sammy or Panny.

Then I saw this at BB...

80"...

Then I read this thread...

80"...

Now I want this panel...

80"...

But it costs way more then I would spend on the plasma, and over what I want to spend...

80"...

But it's...80"...and looked great at BB...

80"...

As I said, this panel SUCKS!!!

This is the one I use, although I'm certain I paid significantly less for it. Very nice. http://www.smartfurniture.com/produc...tt=299&cid=583

At that distance you can JUST see all the detail that is there. Another words, it's as sharp as reality. If you sit closer, the picture will get gradually softer. If you sit further back, say 16 Ft. you are not seeing all the detail that is there. In fact, at 16Ft. you can't tell the difference between 720P and 1080P.

All this is true when one knows that the 1080p system is designed for the viewing distance 3-4xH where H is the picture height. Viewing 80" display from 10,5 ft is closer to 3xH so surely all the detail and sharpness is there. HOWEVER, one should also remember that in such condition the content viewed must be immaculately pristine. Any blemish will be revealed, any corner cut will be annoying. This in particular puts question mark if broadcast TV content can be then fully enjoyed. Thus, one would think the 3H is rather a home cinema arrangement for top quality BRays. Those who think about usage as TV should think about 4H as the minimum.
