I think 15' would be enough to maintain distance between you and TV.

Sitting too close to the TV can cause eye strain and fatigue. IT is said that a person must watch TV from a distance of five times the width of the TV screen.

I have a 60" set. I have my couch set at about 75-80" from my set. I find that ideal. Assuming you are only watching HDTV and Blu-ray movies that is what I would recommend. Experts say that your TV image should fill your field of view.

I have had my set at that distance since I bought it almost 6 years ago. I have never once suffered from any eye strain.

I have used that distance since first purchasing it almost 6 years ago. I have never once suffered from eye strain - but I only watch HDTV and Blu-ray discs.
