It's funny how over the generations TV's have gradually been crawling upwards.
In the 50s and 60s it was mostly consoles sitting on the floor (like furniture).
Through the 90s they moved up onto TV stands, countertops, dressers.
Now they're hanging on walls and over the fireplace.
In any case, I endorse the "eye level" position, with the caveat that you should take into account your posture when watching TV. If you're in reclining chairs, for example, the most comfortable head position may be with your eyes aimed up a little.
I say take a little time just sitting where you'll sit, getting comfortable, relax, close your eyes for a minute or two, and then see where you're looking when you open them. That's where you want the center of your screen to be.
