How high is too high for a 46' TV

I just bought a 26" Sony Bravia and found a gorgeous furniture piece to put it on. It is 45" high. My room is about 21X15 and I have 8 foot ceilings. Do you think 45" is too tall to put the TV on?

In our house, we have our TVs at eye level when seated.
That works best for us!

RE: How high is too high for a 46' TV

I think 45 inches high is fine. Much higher and you may want to consider tilting it down a bit but I don't think that is necessary at 45 inches. I think my 46 inch Samsung is about 45 inches high and when in my recliner fully reclined, I only have to look slightly upward...not uncomfortable at all but rather plesant.

Is your Sony 26 or 46 inches? How far away do you sit? By todays standards, I think 46 inches is good to about 10-12 feet and 26 inches is good for your lap! (if you listen to them LOL!)
