TV Size to Distance Calculator
Bigger and closer is usually better when it comes to choosing the perfect television for your room. Not only it is the biggest factor affecting the price of a television, but it also has a huge impact on the perceived picture quality.
To figure out which size of a TV to buy, divide your viewing distance by 1.6 for a 1080p resolution (or use our TV sizes calculator). You will see the pixels on bigger sizes and lose details on smaller ones. If the best size is outside your budget, just get the biggest TV you can afford.
