My screen width is 80" [ 45" x 80" ] and I feel that it is plenty big for a room the size of mine . I sit about 10 feet away from the screen while sitting on the couch , if I sit behind the couch where the HTPC is [ I have a small step stool back there ] then I am at about 12' away which looks a little better to me . I wish I could hang the PJ and move the couch back against the wall , I think that would give me a better perception of the 92" diagonal image . I would love to have a 10' wide image [ like Rick does ] but that would require a 9" crt pj and I just don't have the room or the cash flow for a 9". I thought about digital PJ's for a while but I have yet to see one that was really pleasing to look at [ DLP or LCD ] as I notice all the little issues and it drives me crazy . Although the best that I have seen was a Sony VW10HT on a Stewart 8' wide gray screen [ black actually almost looked black ] .

I really don't think you should want to go more than 45"x80" with a 7" crt pj anyway . Much bigger than an 80" width really decreases the PQ and the brightness IMO [ unless you are going with a top-o-the-line 7" like a Sony G70 or a Vision 3 ] .
