Circuit City Tip: Your local electronics store, such as Circuit City, can work with you to determine the right HDTV set for your needs. One important consideration is where the viewers will sit. For instance, if you have a small or narrow space, the biggest HDTV won't give you the best experience. In general, the further you sit from the TV, the larger the screen size should be. In a 9-foot by 12-foot living room, you'll probably end up sitting about 8 feet from the screen, meaning that 65-inch behemoth is more TV than you need.
