Even at 10 1/2 feet eye distance-wise watching movies on my 60" feels a bit uncomfortable.
11 feet however I'd say is the sweet spot....I don't care if 7.5(whatever it is) is the optimal distance for 1080p on a 60" Sitting that close feels insane.
Besides, i watch a lot of DVD's anyhow and you DON'T want to be sitting that close with 725x480 or 640x480 material. Besides, sitting in at 8 feet would completely dwarf your living room.tongue.gif

8' from a 64" plasma and it's perfect. Viewing habits are a big factor though; I never watch TV programming but if I did, I wouldn't want to sit that close.

Adjusting settings according to personal preference is not calibration.
