Sort of. Stand in front of the tv at dead center from the distance that you would normally be viewing it, taking in consideration if the tv will be wall mounted (vertical off-axis viewing) or on some sort of stand, and then start to walk left to right and vice versa. Take careful note of the sharpness of the picture and the brightness of the colors (black is a good indicator). If the sharpness of the picture starts to diminish or the colors start washing out (black goes to gray), note where you are standing in relationship to dead center. Where the colors fade or the sharpness starts to drop off, that's your off-axis viewing angle. If it's at an angle that you would not normally watch the tv, then you're ok. If not......... Off-axis viewing is totally dependent on the panel type, some are better than others and quite often you have to go to your local B&M and checkout different tv's to see what's acceptable to you.
