Eh? Where did you see this? I think it's nonsense. For me, 25" would be too big if you're two feet away (e.g. it's on a kitchen countertop) but too small if your sofa is 12 feet away. Yiffy is right, I don't think there is a single "best" size for any TV, it's all personal preference and what you can afford.

It should say in your TV's manual what resolutions it supports. I don't think it could claim to be HD unless it supported 1080i, so you're probably okay. (FYI - There is no such thing as 1080 dpi in this context, dpi is "dots per inch" and is usually used when discussing printer resolution.)

I'm about 8 feet away from my 65 incher. Most people who see it for the first time think the couch is too close to the TV, but I like the screen to be big to simulate a movie theater experience somewhat.

You're only one foot away from your TV? Wow, that's pretty close. Probably bad for your eyes!

25" is plenty big enough for that distance, I imagine you can already see the pixels if you look close enough.
