Does anybody have any idea of what the optimal viewing height is for a 50" widescreen tv (plasma, LCD etc). My viewing distamce would probably be between 8 - 10ft. I am trying to figure out the dimensions of an entertainment unit that I want to build.


Thanks,

Well, in general I'd say the "optimal" hight would be with the display centerline at eye-level from the normal viewing position.


In most installations, that doesn't work out too well, so the display goes in somewhat higher or lower than that.


If you're building an entertainment center, well, then you have the option of putting it at about whatever height you want. Keep in mind that you still might want it higher than eye level, perhaps from viewing from the next room without being obscured by the couch.
