Ok so I have been looking around at difference between 42, 46, and 50 inch tv's. Well, mostly 42 and 50 inch cause they are the more common sizes. Basically, my dilemma is this:
I was going to go for a 42" plasma, but now I'm thinking I might as well just get a 50 inch.
But then I started reading about how far away you should be and what not. Well, I'm putting this in my room, and my room is only about 11 feet wide. I suppose I could rearrange my room so that the tv to viewer distance is longer, but I dont want to have to deal with window and lighting issues.
my main use will be video games (360, maybe wii) and secondary will be movies and tv.
I kinda want to get a big, 50" tv, but if my viewing distance is say... 8 or 9 feet will it look crappy? Also, cash is somewhat a factor so im ruling out 1080p.
So what do you think? Making the distance more than 9 ft would mean that either the screen is directly across from my window, or right in front of it facing opposite toward the room. And it being a plasma and all, I dont want glare to be a problem. (my room is painted dark green). so if any of you guys know much about lighting and how much it affects todays plasma tvs that would help too. but i really would prefer the tv to be positioned where the viewing distance is 8-9 ft just cause of plugs and space and room arrangement reasons
