10 Reasons For
3" larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 has a display diagonal of 43", but the Samsung UE40J5100 is only a 40" TV (3" smaller). Read more

A good rule of thumb is to multiply the display diagonal by 2.5 to determine the viewing distance. So a 40 inch TV is best viewed from 100 inches away, which is equivalent to 8.3 feet or 2.54m. For home cinema setups and a truly immersive experience this ratio can be reduced to 1.2. This will give a screen size that fills 40 degrees of the viewer's field of vision. So if you viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.
