    Hey AV gurus, got a questions for you. I like in a pretty small flat but I would like to get a new TV. I sit between 6 to 7 feet away from my TV. Right now, I have a 19inch LCD TV and it seems a little small. Would a 24inch Widescreen 16:9 TV be too big when i'll be sitting 6 to 7 feet away?

    Well, I have a 30" widescreen, and I sit between 6-8 feet and IMO its too small :o

    Its really a matter of personal preference, but I'd say that a 24" probably won't be too big.

    24" definitely will not be too big. I have a 46" widescreen and even when sitting under 10 feet away I feel I could go bigger. I think a 30" like 04 has would be a good compromise, or even a 36"

    sit where you're gonna sit and then look straight ahead... make a note of the edges of your vision -- find a TV that fills it all :)

    first you should go to Eye Masters and have your vision tested.
    Then go to Best Buy and buy at least a 36 inch 4:3 or 42 inch widescreen
