There is a screen size formula if you want to google it.

I'm pretty happy with my 65inch screen at roughly the same viewing distance.

You're never going to buy a TV that's "too big".

I did. Looking for practical recommendations.

65" in 4K has a viewing distance of 8'-12'.

sounds like you need a 75 inch......

JK, I run a 60 inch in my living room and bedroom. Viewing distance in the living room is roughly 12 feet and I feel it's sufficient (though sometimes I want to go larger).

My bedroom is 25 ft long, with TV on the wall and bed on the opposing wall. The 60 feels small in my bedroom.

I have a 48 inch in a bedroom that's only ~17 ft deep, and the TV feels large due to lower ceiling.

So I guess it really depends on the layout.

Yes you can.

I went by the THX specs and glad I did not go bigger.

I bought a 75" this past weekend and our couch is about 13'. Going larger wasn't really an option as the prices get crazy after the 75" class TVs



It will be here tomorrow.. we shall see what happens..

I have a 64" HD plasma at 8' and it seems perfect to me. If larger, I feel like my eyes would be darting around too much to piece together whatever I'm watching with some content. From what I've seen of 4k TVs, you'll definitely notice the extra resolution at that size and distance, especially with motion and crisp lines in the source material.

I ended up getting the 65" Samsung KS8000 tv. Love it so far!

Thanks for the advice all!

I really hope 4k projectors become more affordable.

Actually - you can.  A screen that is too large for the viewing distance causes eye strain and the viewer has to scan the screen left-to-right constantly - like watching a high speed tennis match.

This man speaks the truth.

ETA: using the THX formula, 9' would suggest a 90" screen.
Quite frankly, I'll be satisfied when I can get an OLED screen the fills my wall from floor to ceiling.
But then again, I like the fully immersive experience.
I currently am running a 55" 4K at the same distance and it feels small.
