Hi

I walked into Costco and walked out with ownership of the last Panny 60lcx63. The guy said they got 12 and they sold out in 5 days!!! Did I say I got the last one???

I always preferred the 50" because my living room is more like a rectangle and I would be looking across the shorter side of the rectangle

I measured from the wall to where I would be seated and I got 10 feet.

I reviewed other viewing distance thread on this board but was unclear if the posters considered the depth of the tv. Anyway, applying my layman's logic, it would seem to me that the true viewing distance is not 10 feet in my case, but 10 feet less the width of the tv which is 1.5 feet. As such viewing distance seems to be only 8.5' in my case. Did I analyze this correctly??

MORE importantly, is this too small for the Panny 60lcx63?

Your imput is urgently needed as Costco wants me to pick it up tomorrow.

Thanks

If you push it back where its touching the wall, yes its 18". I sit 13 feet from mine, but wouldn't mind being closer. 8.5' wouldn't be too close for me.

The general rule is 1.5 times diagonal screen width.

60 * 1.5 = 90

90 / 12 = 7.5 feet minimum viewing distance.

Of course people rarely consider that their eyes are in front of their heads and their heads are usually not against the wall. That removes another 8-15 inches.

I think you will be fine. Of course you could simulate this in your own home by just moving a couple of feet closer to your 50. Then you will know for sure if it will work. You can do the math to figure out the exact distance but 2-3 feet closer should be close enough.

**** on a 65" I've told people 10'-14' to avoid pan and scaning with your head.

Hey Joe

Is your estimate for SD and HD???

Just got one of those at Costco as well, and my viewing distance is about 9 feet from screen to eye. It's not too bad unless the SD signal is bad (which mine is). With HD, that distance is more than enough. Enjoy your tv.
