Thanks. Yes, viewing distance is a key consideration when buying these big screen TV's. In my case, 42" is about the right size for the viewing distance we have.

Here is a handy chart that I found at the Crutchfield advisor web site:

30" - 3.75 to 6.25 feet
34" - 4.25 to 7 feet
42" - 5.25 to 8.75 feet
50" - 6.25 to 10.5 feet
56" - 7 to 11.75 feet
62" - 7.75 to 13 feet
70" - 8.75 to 14.75 feet
