Quote:I was not agreeing with the distances, just pointing out that it's FoV that matters, not how big the display is, or how close you are sitting to a display. Claims that you need a 120" display or larger (which I see posted all the time) are meaningless.
Quote:This chart is totally inaccurate, and I wish people would stop posting it. On a 50" display you apparently need to be within 6ft to see the full benefit of 1080p. I can get much further back than that before I stop seeing the pixel structure or aliasing caused by it - and I'm somewhat short-sighted, so people with better vision than me would be able to get even further back.

You are not supposed to be seeing individual pixels on a display. If you can see pixels, you don't have enough resolution yet.
And everything beyond "full benefit of 1080p visible" is a visible improvement over a 1080p display.
