Pixel wise they became invisible to my eyes at about the 5' mark. I would really like to see how a quality mastered blu ray would look on it. You just might be able to get away sitting as close as maybe 8' to this set. SD would look unwatchable at that distance I am sure.
The room is like 100' by 75' in size. I think this TV would work out much better for him. I will mention it and see if he wants to look at it.
Thanks for the feedback on your experience with the beast. I think this baby would be close to perfect if it had 3D, I really enjoy 3D on my 60" when I view it - much more so than I thought and it would only be better on an 80" beast such as this. Those that say it's a passing fad are in denial considering those that control the camera's in the industry and film studio's will make sure it's here to stay - they can control the media source and devices used and it shall only evolve not fade away anywhere. Who's camera's do you think they are using? Sony and Panasonic for the most part and they are heavily invested globally.
You can't be serious about the size of his room unless he's living in Bill Gates home though - that's 7500 sq ft in one room or about 3 times the size of an average entire home square footage. You'd need a Theater Screen for that baby - I think you must be a fisherman.
