Does anyone have some input on the best viewing distance? Right now we have a 47" Vizio and our typical distance from the TV is 6-7 feet. I don't want to spend the extra for the 70" if we are sitting too close. Thanks for any comments.

Probably 60 would be big as u would want to go from 6ft

Check this out for a good 'rule of thumb':

For a 60" or 70" (with my 65" right between there!), I'd recommend 7' to 9' as probably ideal...
