I know this has been discussed and debated, with many threads, but I still cant seem to find the answer Im looking for..


So with that, to be truly immersed in the film, I realize bigger is better, especially for someone like me who is 12' away from my 60" Vizio M..


I see alot of people at 9 ish feet away with their 42-50", and they say thats fine.. But thats honestly terrible to me.. At 12' away my old 52" sammy looked tiny.. The 8" jump to the vizio M was a nice upgrade, but still not a HUGE upgrade, like the 70" would have been..



Its just the way my living room is set up it makes it tough to get the tv and couch close, so at best , I may be able to move things around and get to a 10' viewing distance, but thats gonna be it.. That or I pray that something happens to my 60, and I can return it for the 70 , lol




Just bought my first 5 3D blu rays today

Despicable Me

Journey 2

Life of Pi

Texas Chainsaw



Im gonna wait til its dark out then throw in avatar , to see what I think.. If Im not Impressed, Ill just keep a few of them, and return the others.. They were all on sale at best buy between $15-$20, so it didn't sting to much

Id recommend to try playing with the "perspective" or "3D effect" (name is different between brands) setting that will likely give you an even more real looking 3D. You'll know it is the right setting when it increases the separation between the images, seen with your glasses off. A lot depends on your viewing distance, content, display size, etc, though, so results may very.

No, you were just touched by the Truth
. And the truth is that for optimal soaking of 3D and 4K content the viewing distance should be in the range of 2PH where the seats were. This is why wise people are waiting for the coming 110"@4K LCD panels and with goodies like HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort

Ok well maybe Ill ask this question...



Is it worth it, and how much bigger is a 70" over the 60" from 12 feet away?


Yes I know in the store it looks quite a bit bigger, so Im imagining when its in your house in a much MUCH smaller room, it will look even bigger..


So for those who have traded, or went from a 60 to a 70, how much bigger is it really?



I went from a 52 to a 60, and yea it was a bit bigger, but not a HUGE difference.. and basically that puts in my head that the 60 to 70 wont be that huge, as its about the same size difference.. Although its on a much larger scale
