Is 85" too big

the mozza

Was going to buy a 65" OLED which is the size I have now but would love to go big. So though I would sacrifice quality by going from Sony A8h to 950H. But is 85" too big. I will be sitting about 10 feet away

Maybe 77" OLED ? But I don't think 85" is too big.

And it can never be big enough lol.

Perfect size for UHD material at that distance -and bigger would be good too, TV Viewing Distance Guide

With 1080i HD you will see the artefacts, possibly too well, that close, depending on the quality of the upscaler.

576i SD will look dreadful, probably.

It probably depends on what material you will be watching the most frequently as to where a compromise on size vs artefact detracting from enjoyment sits.

But get an appointment to audition such sets in a demo room and assess for yourself? (Or 'fake' a test by moving closer to your existing TV to simulate the field of view of the larger ones.)
