Theoretical sizing is one thing, what your significant other deems suitable is another thing...

And those calculators are for someone with average vision. most people once corrected have better than average, or you might just have better than average vision.

Thanks all for the advice and help. The 55" doesn't arrive till early next month, so will have a while to wait until I can enjoy the experience.
I have a few 3D blu-ray movies, so will be interesting to see how they come out on it. Love going to see a 3D big budget  movie at the pictures.

thanks,
David

Are you seriously suggesting that more than 50% of people have better than average vision?

Yes, as the rating for 20/20 is uncorrected, most people who are worse than that will be corrected to be better with glasses.

Not that it's that important to the discussion, but 20/20 is not actually normal or average, let alone perfect, acuity. More like the lower level of "normal". Normal acuity in healthy adults is one or two lines better, say 20/16 or 20/12. Average acuity in a population sample does not drop to the 20/20 level until age 60 or more.
