the issue is entirely subjective. quantifying something that is purely qualitative doesn't make much sense. that's why i said optimal viewing distance is around twice the diagonal length of the display. people will make adjustments that suit their preferences.

Would you have millions of succulent juggling boobs in your face or have only 2 succulent boobs in your face?

Quantify the quality .

120" should be renamed IMax. I wonder how much that costs. If a 70" costs $32,000....wow. It would be about the cost of a Hummer.

Get the biggest/best quality you can afford if you have space and call it a day. 32" is good for almost anyone even in a nice size area.

No, what landed me a PS3 was the fact I have money and can can afford it. I think 32" is enough for most thats concerned with size. Its just right. I recently got a 32" for another room which is a good size and it surprisingly did not seem that small at all compared to my other LCD in the living room and thats 46".
