60 inch OK at 9ft ? (HD only)


Active Member

I'm potentially going to be buying an LG 60PS8000 to put in a second bedroom/cinema room.

The sofa will be just over 9ft from the wall mounted screen. Is this too close for a 60 inch plasma? I'll be using it for XBOX 360, PS3, Blu-Ray and a few upscaled DVDs. Esentially HD only. I appreciated SD might look terrible at this distance!

Any help is appreciated

You'd have no issues at all sat at 9' :thumbsup: It helps most of your sources are HD. SD varies so much anyhow. I sit 10' from my 50" and wish it was a 60

I know a lot of Pio owners with 60" screens are sat closer than 9' :smashin:

Also you'd get used to the size in weeks if not days :)

Im watching a 50" G10 from 6-7 feet away and even Freeview is acceptable for me (blu-rays look fantastic of course) so going by that, Id say 9ft for a 60" would be fine.

I wouldnt want a 60" at my viewing range though - that might be a bit TOO much even for me! :D
