When considering height, you also have to consider viewing depth to watch the t.v.

Sure, the t.v. may be too high, if you are sitting right at the fireplace, but for great rooms, and open floor plans, the height may be ideal for an adjacent kitchen, etc..., where you have to view the television from 15'-0" away.

Take both of these into consideration when mounting flat screen tv's.

I've mounted the tv above the fireplace in my last 2 houses (both with raised hearths), and will do the same in the house we are building (hearth level with the floor). I prefer it over the fireplace, because then you don't have competing focal points in the room. We don't find it too high, and in my current family room (which is smaller than in the other 2 houses), we sit about 9 feet from the tv.
