I've travelled a long road through the maze of plasma information, then through RPTV information, and now have a possible solution to get me back to plasma.


What I want: a nice display that won't bankrupt me (like a 60" plasma would), will offer a HDTV (or like HDTV) pq, and most important of all, fits my viewing distance.


Because my viewing distance from wall to chair and/or bed (in the master bedroom where the set will be) is 14', I had pretty much decided that 50" displays won't cut it and therefore with price considerations I needed to get a 60" + RPTV.


However, it occurred to me that I could get a plasma, put it on a stand with rollers, and simply roll the stand closer to my seating whenever I wanted to use the set. The floors are maple, so rolling the stand wouldn't be any problem.


What do you think of that as a solution? If I buy a 42" or 50" plasma and then roll it to an appropriate distance from the seating, can I then give myself the proper "immersion" experience? What about cables (although most of them would be on the stand and therefore rolling with the set.


Also, because most of my viewing is SD, would I be better off with a 42" ED display (like the Panny) and then rolling it in to, say, 9 feet away?


I'd really like to know what everyone thinks about this, because especially with my SD viewing habits, I think I'm going to be very unhappy with a large RPTV (not to mention the concerns I've got with DLP's - I won't even go there!).

brick - if you keep trying hard enough you can convince yourself of anything.


...sorry honey, wait a minute while I get out of bed and push the plasma a bit closer so we can both see it.;)

50" AND and an articulating wall mount. I watch a Pio 503CMX from 12' feet. Ten is close enough if you watch SD programming.
