Interested in what the average distance people view their video displays from.

To keep the information uniform please list in the following manner:

Display Type: example Projector / TV
Display Size: example 60"
Viewing Distance: example 10'


I personally have the following
Display Type: projector
Display Size: 100"
Viewing Distance: 10'







So far the survey has resulted in the following. Ironically no one has posted the same size display. Hoping to get enough input to create a generally recommended viewing distance based on display size based off of actual user data.

92 12 / 9
100 10 / 12
106 10 / 12
120 12 / 14 / 11
134 14


TVs

40 9
42 12 / 12

58 7 / 6.5
60 7 / 12 / 12 / 12
