I've been looking for but cannot find info regarding the angle of view for this set. On the Sony site it says "wideangle of view" but compared to what ? Could anybody with one of these give me a real world thought on viewing from anything other than square on. We have a corner unit and another 2 seater, so although it's not at an acute angle, it's a concern.

Thanks for any help

Have you been and looked at one of these sets?
I find that it has quite a good 'off centre' vewing angle.

Thanks for the quick response.

Yes I have looked, but the problem as I se it is that the sets are always in areas that are brightly lit from above, and this obviously affects what you see.

I can confirm that I find no problem sitting up to 45 degrees off centre.

Its barely limited at all in the horizontal plane; it's more restricted vertically.

Thing is that if you sit at an acute angle everything (as on all displays) will look horizontally incorrect. Eg: A circle will look squashed horizontally and the apparent width of the screen will be narrower.

The TV has an almost 180 degree viewing angle. Obviously the best position is diectly in front of it, but it is perfectly watchable from almost any angle. Like one of the prevoius posters stated it is more limited in the vertical plane than the horizontal.

The Manual quotes 130 degrees I.E. 65 Deg right and left. Owning the set I can't say I disagree.

Sorry I CAN'T say I disagree

Probaly easier to have said 'I agree'.
These double negatives ;)
