Good to know... yeah I'm desperately trying to move on from my puny 23" TV to something in the 32" range, current monitor is about an arms length away, but as I get older needing to see things larger is getting more and more real, hell having to use "accessability functions" to make text larger on a screen really starts to make me feel old.Approximately 3 feet. It's far enough away that the 48" completely immerses you when gaming, but I can see all 4 corners without having to turn my neck. The 55" that I had previously was like gaming on an IMAX lol, but honestly a little large for most people. I find the 48" to be a more practical size. LG is supposedly coming out with a 42"...we thought it might be this year with the C1 series, but no dice, so maybe next year. That's the ideal size for a lot of people who like large 4K displays. I'll probably stick with the 48" unless there are big improvements to the electronics or panel (unlike the C1).
