Hey guys, These past 5 days I have visited like 4 different shops considering buying a new LCD for my new apartment, which I currently don't have any TV connected yet. All salesman from different shops recommended me 42" LCD, while I actually pushed for the 47". Yet they all repeatadly kept telling that 47" would be too big, and they obviously would want me to spend more money on a T.V. yet they honestly believe anything over 42" for my room would be an overkill. I want to add that I would mainly watch Bluray movies at 1080p and play PS3 games (also 1080p). The fact that most of what I am going to watch would be HD. And given the fact that my viewing distance from eyes to TV is about 2.8 meters (9 feet) do you really think that 47" would not serve better experience than a 42" set ? According to an article I just read and a T.V. Viewing distances chart published by Panasonic the optimal viewing distance when watching a 42" Full HD (1080p) TV is 1.7 meters! (5.5 feet). Though for 42" 480p which has a much lower resolution it would be optimal to look at from 3.7 meters (12 feet). Keep in mind I want my TV to be used mainly for Blueray 1080p content and PS3 1080p content and a viewing distance of about 2.8 meters (9 feet). Do you think a 47" would give better experience? I just bought today the Philips 42PFL9664. But I am thinking of going to the shop tomorrow morning and change my order to a 47" LCD for around the same price tag. Focusing on my question. Can you gurus help out ?
