    I'm interested in those of you with 26" TV's and how far away you sit? I know a lot of people have the 26" sharp Aquos tellies (like myself :D ).

    Thanks.

    I'd like to know that as well actually, I've contemplated getting a 26", but with a viewing distance of approx 3.0m feel it might be a bit to small.

    I use mine in the bedroom at the moment and it is a good size but in a few months when I move it will be in the lounge and I'm thinking it may be a bit small :(

    Agent Pingu I think 3metres from 26" will be about right. I'd say between 2-4m is fine for it. Once you get to four metres and above I'd say you'd prob want bigger.

    Hi Pingu!

    At 3m away I think the 26" might be a little bit little. It's a 32" for you!

    Actually Pingu I think Jimmy is right, I just measured and 3 metres could be pushing it for that 'cinema feel'. 26" would suffice for standard broadcasts but when watching DVD's and the like 32" would be more suitable.
