    My living room is 12ft by 13ft. Do you think that is enough for Sonia Bravia 46X?

    Also what is the optimal viewing distance for an LCD? Is it different for various specs i.e. 1080p/1080i/720p etc...

    we have this tv and that distance is fine.
    they say the right distance is about 8-9ft.

    Save yourself the heartache and steer well clear of this overpriced, overhyped Sony monster. I had to send two 52"'s back, both displaying dreadful, clearly visible and permanent white clouds on screen (uneven backlight). Although I'll freely admit the picture was stunning from my Tosh XE1 HD DVD player, SD was a totally different story. Fully upscaled 1080p images from a Denon 3930 were "best" (not great), replete with horrendous image lag - seriously, really, really bad in certain scenes. Sky digital and freeview are just a horrible pixelated mess. Do yourself a favour, get a plasma.

    Do you think the problem is that this LCD is ahead of its time? Canyou make the LCD do downscaling to make normal SD slightly more clearer?

    If you look at the Sony X series thread, you will see lots of satisfied customers. I have a 46" and I personally think it's a great tv and I personally don't like plasma's, but that's my opinion and not a statement of fact. Granted some sd pictures aren't great, but that's usually the 'golden oldie 60's repeats type channel' and who wants to watch that. If you've had a look the tv in a shop and made you decision to go for an lcd, this one is an excellent choice. PS, get the biggest one you can!
