Choosing a TV console--optimal height for viewing?
We purchased a 50" plasma on Saturday. Can't wait to get it, but for now I have to concentrate on buying something to sit it on. I've narrowed it down to two consoles. One sits the TV at 30" and the other at 24". So many of these consoles are only 24" high which seems really low to me, since our current TV sits at 29". But since that height is so common, maybe there is a reason...?
Is there an optimal height for TV viewing? The three options seem to be: wall mount, which I don't want to do; 24" which seems kind of low, or that in-between height of 27"-30".
