I managed to get the TV I was wanting on Black Friday! Mrs. xSSMBB however is a bit freaked out over how large it is.If you'll recall, we're mounting it over the fireplace, the wall mount will be here Monday and I'll have it angled down slightly.https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/606XzwHQCBUQXK77e-4OWZ......The fireplace is 81" wide. I can't believe I'm saying this, but is the TV too large?I've asked for opinions on the AVS forums also.xSSMBB From two aspects no it isn’t too large. First, although you didn’t say how large it is, as a large TV – in that room – it gives a good viewing angle so seating can be more open than if the TV were smaller. Put it this way: a larger TV ‘opens’ the room.Second, and an extension of he first: imagine if not a TV but a large framed lithograph of the same size. How big is big? Too small would be immediately obvious but a large landscape would complement the fireplace and the room.Out of the carton all flat screens look large. Once up on the wall you’ll say ‘Just about right.” And DW won’t think that it’s too large. Ask her, once it’s up, if it ‘balances’ the room and she’ll probably say yes.MichaelR
