I'm looking for some input. I currently have a non-digital 36" WEGA. My viewing distance is around 7.5". I like my WEGA, but it has the uneven brightness problem (which may or may not be fixed today; a Sears tech is replacing a coil, which presumably fixes the problem). If Sears cannot fix this problem, I am considering taking back the WEGA and buying the new Panasonic 46" (47?) HDTV. If I pricematch this set the whole thing will cost me another $250 - $300 over the WEGA. My question is is 7.5" too close for this TV? If not, would I be crazy not to return the WEGA, regardless of whether Sears can fix the problem? Any advice would be much appreciated.
