They do make 52 inch LCD's and there are a few companies that had 49's at one point. I know the screen size is obviously bigger on the 55 just wondering if it's "Worth it" if that makes sense. The 55 XBR929 is getting pretty cheap and the LM9600 is up in the air as far as size goes...kicking around the idea of picking up a 929 in May if htese other 2012 sets dont materialize.
Panasonic made some pretty big leaps in PQ this year on their Plasma side so that may also be worth looking at...
Sony and Samsung starting in April will not allow discounting of their higher end units. If you're thinking about the Sony HX929, that great deal out now, will end in two days. Then it's back to map....minimum acceptable price structure their talking about. No more discounts anywhere, brick and mortar or online. If you can not afford the sharp Elite, then the next best set will be the Sony your thinking about. Always go for the biggest size you can fit, as long as the pq is great.
