Lifehacker Tip: Buy the Right Size TV


One of the few things I didn't like in my tour of the Tridel Eco-suite was the monster LCD TV in the living room. It was considered green because it used "20% less power than a CRT TV and 30% less than a plasma" but was still huge.

I also wondered about how good the picture would be if one was sitting that close; even with HDTV or HDVD there has to be a limit. Lifehacker to the rescue: they found a table with recommended minimum and maximum distances for the size of the monitor. So if you are in a small room, don't drop the megabucks on a megascreen, even if it's megagreen. ::HDTV world via ::Lifehackerfor older TV's:
