Large flat-screen TVs are in vogue, prices are falling steadily, and quality is on the rise. However, it is often not so easy for the consumer to estimate the actual size of the TV.

65-inch TV: How high and wide is it?The diagonal of the TV set is 65 inches, i.e., 165 cm. However, you will want to know how it fits into your living room or in the TV landscape. To do this, you need the height and the width. These are the concrete dimensions:

Optimal Distance for 65-Inch Units
For better orientation, we have also listed the recommended distance for a 65-inch unit in our chart. The recommended distance from the seat to the unit can be calculated with a formula. Of course, this is only a recommendation. You have to decide individually whether the distance is suitable for you. Ultimately, the distance also depends on the picture quality of the TV.
The rough rule is:
Viewing distance = screen diagonal x 2.1
In this particular case, the 65-inch screen TV has a diagonal of 165 cm, so the recommended viewing distance = 165 cm * 2.1 = 346 cm = 3 meters and 46 centimeters.
What is the screen area of a 65-inch TV?
In addition to the screen diagonal, the respective screen height and width are also indicated in centimeters in the size guide. The screen of the 65-inch TV has a width of 143 centimeters and a height of 80 centimeters. Here, it is important to measure the future space for the large TV set well in advance. The screen area is calculated by multiplying the screen width by the screen height. It is therefore 143 cm × 80 cm = 11,440 square centimeters (cm²). The screen area is more than one square meter, which is about twice the size of a-46 inch screen TV.
