Any opinions on what 16:9 size would be better for a 12x22 room w/LCD front-projection: 106'' (52x92) or 119''(58x104) diagonal?

I'm considering either the Sony 10HT or Sanyo PLV-60 - both 16:9 native mode projectors - tho some say the Sanyo has better contrast and black levels.

Seating can be anywhere that I don't see pixelization/artifacting..I'm considering 13' for first row, 18' for second tho I would like to shorten this if possible.

I'm leaning toward the Da-Lite High Contrast (after reading the comments/reviews here) over the Stewart Greyhawk.

Thanks!

Thanks, LRO!

What kind of projector are you using?

Do you see any pixelization or artifacting at 14'? How bout 13'? (And, are you using a depixelization lens or anything else fancy?)

I'm using an AMPRO 3600 CRT projector with an HTPC and I don't see any change until I'm about 2' from the screen.
