    Am looking at buying a new TV ..But am a little bit struck on what size to go for...I will be about 9 to 10 feet away from the screen...

    My old TV is a 32" widesrceen CRT but i want to mount the new one on the wall so it going be about 18" to 20" farther back..
    (Am mainly guessing about 37" is going be about right..)

    So could some you guys/girls post what size TV your using and at roughly what distance you are from the screen..


    Cheers.

    A 88" projector screen from 12 feet away.

    But in the day I play it on either my 26" widescreen CRT from ~6 feet away or on the 20" LCD on my desk from 3 feet away.
