Shld be 3.5 meter and above....but that depends on individual eye sight.

the guideline is abt 2.5 times the diagonal distance..
so for a 43" RPTV...min distance should be abt 2.5m away

The further you sit the better. 2m is CONFIRM too close. I am having it at abt 2.5-3m away. I feel its only acceptable. I feel better sitting abt 3.5m away...but no space :)

3m is a good compromise.
I'm 3m apart from my 47" widescreen RPTV.
I don't sit with the TV often, only for some good movies. So it's okay for me. But seriously for prolonged viewing, I think I would be happier to shift it to 3.5 or 4m  but parents want the sofa to be at the 3m mark :P

But 3M is safe.
