Which Size HDTV is Right for My Room?

HDTV Size chart
With standard-definition TVs, the rule used to be that viewers would feel comfortable watching a set from a distance of 3 to 6 times the screen size in inches. With HDTV, the resolution is so much better that you can sit closer to a larger TV without noticing the pixels. So with HDTVs, the rule tends to be you can sit anywhere from 1.5 to 3 times the screen size (in inches) for the best experience.

If you know the size of the room you have already, where you want to sit, and where your new HDTV should go once you get it, you can figure out the size HDTV you should get.

  • Minimum size = Viewing distance/3
  • Maximum size=Viewing distance/1.5

Use spaces to separate tags. Use single quotes (') for phrases.

  1. Picture Great but...... Review by Olivia Rogers

    This TV has great picture quality but after having it about 8 months the sound began to become distorted after it had been on for an extended time. At first we thought it was our Direct TV Receiver but after getting that replaced we discovered it was the TV itself. When it occurs you have to turn off the TV and turn it back on and it resets itself. Overall, I would recommend going with a less expensive Dynex. (Posted on 2/17/2012)

  2. Not for the hard of hearing Review by Valerie

    The television is bright and has a very good picture. We have been using it for almost a year and are happy EXCEPT that there is no way to connect external stereo headphones. This is bad news for people who are hard of hearing and use assistive devices. We are very disappointed at this lack of accessibility on Panasonic's part. (Posted on 1/19/2012)

  3. Panasonic TC-L32C22 32" 720p LCD HDTV Review by Serena

    This is a good HDTV for people on a budget. My parents have the Panasonic TC-L32U22 32-Inch 1080p LCD HDTV, which is about $100 more. If you aren't obsessed with 1080p and just want a quality HDTV, this is it. I don't know about you, but I can't justify spending $100 more to up from 720p to 1080p. I suppose if you were a hardcore gamer it would be important, but I play games on this TV and it looks great. (Posted on 4/22/2011)

  4. perfect for first timers with limited budget Review by newtv!!!

    if you are transitioning from crts, this is perfect. i got this at best buy for $300 and it's great. if you are all about settings and black levels and all the mumbo jumbo out there, this might not be it for you. but if you want a no hassle, plug-in-and-go tv, this is it. find an hd sports channel and you'll see it's worth every penny.

    i was comparing this model with an similar lg and chose panasonic strictly for the price ($75 less when i bought the panasonic). also, dont be blinded with all this talk about 1080p, with a tv this small (compared to 50"-60"), 720 won't ruin your tv or movie experience. use that extra $100-$150 and buy a blu-ray player or a new tv stand. (Posted on 2/8/2011)

  5. Nice set Review by Kellum III

    Nice TV, easy to use. Picture Picture looks great once you have it set up properly for your room. A+ (Posted on 1/31/2011)

  6. Updated: Must remove black plugs to reveal VESA mounting holes Review by Jazz Khanna "Jazz"

    Initially I bought and returned this tv as the VESA mounting holes are not visible and I concluded it was not VESA compliant.. After getting in touch with Panasonic tech support, they mentioned the vesa mounting holes are covered with black plugs. They looked more like screws for the housing that held the electronics inside. The manual or panasonics website has no mention of these plugs. In any case, I am re-ordering this unit or the panasonic x2 series and trying this again. In the mentime I've revised my rating to a neutral one till I can further evaluate it. (Posted on 1/28/2011)

  7. Panny C22 32 incher Review by Cole Train "bluesman"

    This is a good TV that delivers exactly what it promises. Sound is good. Picture is a good 720p image and plenty g0od enough for a bedroom or 2nd TV. If you want a home theatre TV and want to play Blu ray in a larger room , spend the money and get a 42 or larger model in 1080p, but for a small room, this one is a good product. The current price is an excellent value too, on Amazon. (Posted on 1/20/2011)

  8. gorgeous picture Review by Jim in Rochester "Jim"

    Good price, great picture, easy to set up. What more do you need? No complaints or problems at this early stage (Posted on 1/11/2011)

  9. Buena relacion calidad precio Review by Perello

    Compre este producto basandome en la tradicion de la marca, no me defraudo, al menos las 3 primeras semanas, incluso ya compre otro. La imagen tiene muy buena definicion, el sonido es optimo y tiene funciones utiles para los usuarios que, como yo, necesitamos sencillez y simplicidad para manejar la Tv como medio de entretenimiento. La competitividad en el precio en relacion con su calidad justifica el decidirse a comprarlo. Espero se publique esto en castellano pues facilitaria al gran mercado de compradores hispanohablantes la labor de escoger en el momento de comprar (Posted on 1/7/2011)

  10. Very pleased Review by Peter J. Arcadi

    This Television is a good value. It is a very nice looking TV with a very good picture. It appears to be a quality product. (Posted on 12/30/2010)

  11. GOOD BUY Review by spendy

    Pansonic Ipurchased three of these TV..s..Easy set up great clear picture.the price was fair.Amazon needs to improve on shipping an item such as this .no brown papper over the box .Plus the TVwas loose in the box.PANASONIC KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. (Posted on 12/26/2010)

  12. Great Looking TV Review by E. Ortiz

    This unit provides a very nice picture quality, typical from a Panasonic TV.

    I purchased this unit for my mother as Christmas gift and I was very impressed once connected to her cable provider and tuning to several HD channels.

    The setup was fairly easy. It took me literally 5 minutes from taking the TV out of its box, installing the pedestal and placing it on the stand.
    I didn't even need to read the instruction's book.

    The speakers provide adequate sound for a bedroom and the video/audio inputs available are more than enough for my mom's needs (Cable STB and DVD Player).

    I highly recommend this unit for anyone looking for a reliable TV brand at a very decent price. (Posted on 12/25/2010)

  13. Former good Japanese brand Review by Alm

    I gave 4 stars, because can't give 3.5.

    Pros: Nice picture, ergonomic remote, can memorize different setups for different inputs.

    1) Built-in speakers firing down and to the rear from the bottom of the TV frame. They are facing down and tilted few degrees up towards the rear wall, and there is a ridge in front of the speakers, further blocking the sound. I reduced the Bass and increased the Tremble, but it is still echoing sometimes like in a shoebox. This is stereo, 2 speakers, but the sound is worse than in my old CRT TV with single mono speaker. I use TV speakers only for TV programs (have external speakers and amplifier for watching DVD and HDD files). Despite added inconvenience of external sound system for mere 20-minutes news program, with this TV I'm seriously considering using external speakers at all times.

    2) Some lag when switching inputs via designated button on remote or on TV set. If you have to go 5 clicks to change from TV input to PC input, you go - click... wait 1.5-2 seconds ... - click again, and so on, - 5 times. If you click quickly like you used to, only the first click will register.

    3) Shiny black piano finish is NOT needed on the inner side of the bezel, adjacent to the LCD panel. My opinion is that it is not needed at all. In dark room it shines with reflected light from bright screen, and in daytime the whole frame shines from the ambient light. At least the inner bezel could've been made matte. I want to watch the picture - not a nice-looking frame.

    4) Made in China. I see quality problems lately more often than in the past when Japanese products were Japanese. Remote control is making creaky sounds (battery door) when I'm flipping through the channels. Not worth replacing the whole box, next box could have more and serious problems (with TV itself, for example), so I will let it be.

    There were comments that audio firmware needed upgrades - apparently units sold in the last 2 months have been upgraded already. Only once I had silent picture (not intermittent sound as people complained), when flipped Channel button to exit the PC mode. You can hit the Mode button, but when going to TV mode you can just hit the Channel Up/Down. I turned the unit off and on again, and sound was back. It happened only once.

    Other Thoughts: 720p TV is ALREADY more than SD DVD can output, so don't expect picture to look better than on properly working 480p CRT TV. In fact, with same composite cable it will look worse than on CRT TV, and you have to use either component (red-green-blue) or HDMI cable. If you play HD DVD on any DVD player (even not upconverting player) - then it will be much better than SD DVD and you won't see any difference from 1080p of same screen size. (Posted on 9/4/2010)

  14. Not the choice for today's cable Review by R. Testa

    Yes, the picture is good. Got that out of the way...

    There is absolutely no setting, no attempt made to automatically detect the aspect ratio. That means flipping through the format settings to find the right setting for each program, and having commercials show extra-squashed, extra-small, or cut off whenever they use a different aspect ratio. Since --another problem-- the remote cannot be set to control the box, you can't both change channels AND watch a proper picture unless you a.) buy a third party remote, b.) keep two remotes at hand, or c.)are lucky enough to have a remote that has a format button on it. (Posted on 8/13/2010)

  15. Panasonic TC-L32C22 32-Inch 720p LCD HDTV Review by WinCrazy

    This model is great except for one important annoyance. All my video hook-ups use HDMI. After about 1 hour and 55 minutes of viewing the sound suddenly distorts to being completely garbled. Turning the set off then back on clears this problem, but the TV's start-up is so slow that this takes about twenty seconds for the picture and sound to come back on. Of course, this is very near the end of every 1-hour TV show and is usually at the most critical point in the show ! This is extremely annoying. I doubt that this problem is due to my Verizon FiOS set top box. Verizon is extraordinary about demanding perfect performance from their equipment suppliers for all their STB's, routers, modems, etc. that they supply for their various services.----- Otherwise, this model has exceeded my expectations for only four hundred bucks at KostKo. It's too bad that a single serious flaw ruins the overall high quality of this product. ----- I use the Western Digital WD TV LIVE PLUS HD to stream videos (DVD and .AVI files) from my Win7 PC via HDMI and a 100mbit hardwired LAN cable. This is the only solution (that is, the WD on HDMI) I have found that displays HD video from my PC that completely fits the horizontal width of the TV screen. ---- (Posted on 8/10/2010)

  16. Great Bed Room TV Review by The Country Squire "Sportsman"

    I was looking for a larger TV for the bed room and decided on the 32 inch Panasonic because of the good picture quality and reliability I have experienced from another Panasonic TV I purchased for my living room a couple of years ago. The new Panasonic was purchased at Best Buy for $410 and is a new model replacement for a similar Consumer Report's review that was rated as a CR Recommendation. The TV was easy to set up and the picture quality is great. This is the perfect size for a bed room or guest room TV. The 720p is fine for a 32 inch TV and 1080p is not necessary for a set of this size or smaller. (Posted on 4/24/2010)

  17. Great HD TV at Bargain price Review by David Felder

    Bought this Panasonic Viera TCL32C22 at PC Richards, a NY/NJ area appliance shop. Floor price was $399, but I paid $349.

    Let me start off by saying I own a video production company, so I sit in front of televisions all day. When HD TV's first hit the market, I was unimpressed with the image quality. At close scrutiny, most HD TV's that I've seen have horrible artifacting, due to the MPEG-2 compression used to transmit signals.

    After hooking it up to my FIOS HD box using an HDMI cable, the first channel I put on was YES network, because I know that NY Yankees games are broadcast in high definition. I was extremely impressed with the image clarity and the color. There was no visible artifacting, even when sitting a few inches from the screen. I surfed through the high-def channels and found varying degrees of images. Some channels just stretch the picture and slap an "HD" logo on it, so you really need to look at a high-def broadcast to judge it.

    My next step was to connect a DVD player using a set of Analog component cables. I choose two DVD's: the BBC "Planet Earth" series because of the wonderful photography it includes, and the Hollywood movie "There will be Blood," for both the photography and sound.

    "Planet Earth" displayed in widescreen mode on the DVD/TV combination without me setting anything. From ten feet, the pictures were gorgeous. The color was rich and vibrant. At screen-side, black blockiness was apparent; but when I sat a few feet away the MPEG-2 artifacting disappeared.

    I loaded "There will be Blood" into the DVD player. The picture looked great and the sound was fantastic.

    For a more detailed review, visit my blog: [...]

    UPDATE JULY 22, 2010
    Had an intermittent problem, wasn't sure if it was the Blue Ray player, the FIOS box or the Panasonic monitor, but finally figured it out. Sometimes, after the monitor has been on at least a few hours, the audio goes nuts. I can't even describe what it sounds like, the dialogue drops to about 10% of the sound, with a distorted, over-modulated audio echo of the same dialogue (or whatever else is playing) taking about 90% of the soundtrack. That means you can probably make out the dialogue if you listened really carefully, but who wants to watch a program under those conditions?

    At first, I thought it was my DVD player. I recently bought the Panasonic Viera Blue Ray player (which, incidentally, is not 100% remote control compatible) and found I still occasionally had the problem watching a DVD. The problem also occurs watching Netflix videos streaming via the Blue Ray player.

    Turning the monitor off, then back on, clears the problem. Only, you have to make sure you turn off the monitor using the FIOS remote control, because the monitor remote also turns off the Blue Ray player (resetting the blue ray disc to the top menu).

    Haven't decided yet if the problem is bad enough to get me to return the TV. I haven't got the box, and I'm sensing a lot of hassles from the dealer . . . (Posted on 4/20/2010)

  18. not as sharp Review by Commander Mike

    I was given a gift card by RTG because i had purchased a bed room set. I paid 418 at BrandSmartUSA for the panasonic TV. I use for my Bed room. I don't like the sharpness of the TV, because i watch soccer and it looks blurry sometimes. I thought it was because the movement of the players, but when i change channels to the news local channel, i can clearly see some blur, you can see this if move close enough and pay attention to details, but you won't notice it if you stay further back (Posted on 4/9/2010)

  19. Easy to Set-Up, Beautiful Picture, Reasonable Price Review by M. Hill

    I am not an expert on LCD televisions, just someone in need of a new TV. It will ultimately be used in the bedroom, but for now it is in the family room. Although it is not a huge room, it opens to the kitchen and the ceiling is vaulted. For months I studied reviews of different models on the internet hoping to at least discover which manufacturers had the most service problems to avoid that aggravation, along with which brand had the best rated picture quality. I also visited showrooms to see what looked best to my eye.

    After my research I narrowed my search to a 720p TV because although 1080p of course creates a higher quality picture, it isn't as critical on a 32 inch TV or smaller. Since new televisions usually appear in March, my plan was to buy a discontinued model and take advantage of clearance pricing. Unfortunately I waited too long and the two choices I'd focused on were both no longer available. This TV met my needs, the price was right and Panasonic was one of the two brands I'd settled on.

    Light weight and easy to handle, out of the box all that was necessary was putting the stand together with a few screws and then attaching it with a few more to the television. I already had a composite video/audio cable which is good because Panasonic doesn't include one. The cable consists of three male plugs on each end -- one red, one white and one yellow. The red and white are for right and left audio and the yellow is video. There are ports on the back of the cable box and the TV with the same colors so it was easy to connect - video out on the cable box and video in on the TV. An extra step I took, in order to get my local stations' HD programs, was to hook up a basic inside antenna by screwing the antenna cable into the same named jack on the back of the TV. That gave me two advantages - I can see the HD content in full HD without increasing the cost of my basic cable plan - and if the cable goes out I can still watch TV.

    I put the batteries(included) into the remote control and turned the TV on. The first screen asked for language preference (English, Spanish or French), next the option to select viewing mode - home use or store demonstration. Then the adjust picture screen came up and I left it at the default "vivid" (choices are vivid, standard, cinema, game or custom.) The darkness of your room will dictate what looks best, and the defaults are easy to change by clicking on the remote -- menu, tools, re-set to defaults. Then it goes to auto channel set-up, but if you are using a cable box you select "not used." If using an antenna, select "antenna" and then select "start" to scan the channels. Next is an option to label each of the inputs for - antenna, DVD player, cable box, etc. Then a screen appears to adjust the clock for the year, month, day hour and minute. The completion message is then displayed and you're done.

    The TV can be hooked-up to a PC so it can be used as a monitor. I missed an episode of 24 during the Olympics. The network website permits viewing of the current season's episodes so I simply connected the HDMI cable from my laptop PC into the television's HDMI port on the back. That allowed me to watch the missed episode on TV rather than my small laptop screen.

    The speakers are one-way 10 watt speakers and are typical of built-in television speakers. Note that there is no analog audio output or headphone jack. There is an optical digital audio output jack. I did not hook-up a receiver and separate speakers to improve the audio, at least not yet, but if superior sound is a concern, you will probably want to explore the possibilities.

    The picture is absolutely fabulous and amazingly enough even when viewed at a severe angle, there is no quality degradation. My only complaint is that the volume doesn't change significantly as you increase it. The TV has an adequate maximum volume setting, but if the setting is at 30 and you want it a little louder you might have to go to 60 before you notice an increase in sound. The increments seem too small.

    The TV has a shiny "piano" black case which some people feel is a maintenance problem, but fingerprints and dust wipe up beautifully with a microfiber cloth, and I like the appearance.

    The set comes with a twelve month warranty, but I bought an extended warranty for an extra two years from square trade since this is a new model and as such has no history. I have been using the set for two weeks and so far it is completely trouble free, and I am very pleased with the purchase, but I will update the review if I experience any problems.
