Most everybody with extra large screens and freedom to sit anywhere they want end up sitting between 1 and 2 screen widths away from the screen, depending on individual preference.

That definitely holds true for projection screens, but smaller TV screens people tend to want to sit further away. I thoroughly enjoy a 1:1 seating ratio for my regular projection viewing - I have a 120" projection screen (9 foot width) and my front row sofa seating puts the viewer's eyes at just under 9 feet from the screen. But for 3D movies, I like to move the sofa another foot or two closer! cool.gif

However close you want...

I find for regular 2D viewing about 2-3 screen widths is comfortable.

For 3D immersion it's best to be closer at about 1.5 screen widths so the picture takes up more of your field of view.
