    If my room height is roughly 8ft from floor to ceiling and I have a 69" diagonal (34" drop) 16:9 screen, what would be the most comfortable height to view the screen without getting a kink in my neck?

    My viewing distance will probably be 8 1/2 ft from the screen.

    Any suggestions welcome...

    ;)

    I may be wrong but i think you want eye level at a 1/4 - 1/3 of the way up the screen

    Yep, I agree with that. You should aim to have your eye level at 1/3 the way up the screen. That's not always possible sadly, like with me where I'd like to have it a little higher up. Just don't have it so high your always looking upwards as you'll soon be sick of it when you get neck ache. ;)
