Size x Distance + Price - Common Sense = Braincramp

Matsushita to sell record 103-inch plasma TVs - Yahoo! News

A 103 inch TV? That'd be cool, for sure...however, just how far back would you need to be for optimal viewing distance? Running it through an online calculator, it comes to a little under 26 feet. So get out those tape measures and save your quarters - this won't come cheap...

I think the folks that build mega theatres need to be told about this calculator of yours.

There is barely 26 feet from the front of the big screen to the first row, in an average theatre.

With home screens like this, we can take the theatre's advice: Go Big... *and* go home. :-)

I just did a Google search for LCD viewing distance and found a calculator...don't know how right it was...

But no kidding, with a screen that big, you'd never have to go to a theatre again :)
