I am purchasing a 70in Sharp 733u and I was wondering from other people on here that have TV's of this size how far back they sit from the TV. I know about the charts and I checked says a good distance is between 9 and 10 ft. I have a 52 now and that is how far i sit currently. Just want to see if anyone has had it at a distance and changed ether closer or more further back. Just wondering the set up that other people use with a 70 inch set thanks!

I had the 70" and now have the 80", with both sets Im about 9 to 10 feet,,, perfect distance in my opinion.

My rule is to sit as close as possible to the television, but far enough so I don't see the pixels, to have the maximum picture quality.

According to some studies, a normal 20/20 vision human can distinct something 1 arcminute apart (1/60 degree). For a 1080p 16:9 television, this equals to a distance roughly 1.6 times the diagonal length of the screen. So for a 70", this means 9.3' of distance.

Beyond that, you start loosing the full resolution advantage and closer to that, you will start seeing the pixel.

However, this applies only for immaculate content. Practically it will be Blu-ray since even HD broadcast may show up artefacts from this distance. If there is SD in the mixture than closer to 12´ is better. Overall the rule is 3-4PH (pic height).
