Im looking for a 32" lcd tv for my bedroom. Im going to be about 6 feet away. Should I get a 720p or spend more on a 1080p.

IMO, I would go with 40" minimum, and most likely 46".
Edit: If you are going to get a 32" regardless, then go ahead and get 720p. You wont see much of a difference at your viewing distance.

At 6 feet you won't be able to resolve any better than 720p on a 32" screen, so there's no point in spending extra money on 1080p unless you plan on moving closer to the screen in the future.
For more information, consult the resolution chart .

Do you guys even read? He said he would be sitting "about 6 feet away."
40" minimum? What the hell...
And resolution has little to do with it unless he is going to sit 3 inches away from it. A 32" is actually above average for a "bedroom tv" at "about 6 feet." Sure, if you have the dough and want to go bigger, you can, but there is no PERFECT answer to your question.

Yup, 6' would be 40" minimum, unless you want no immersion. Look, you could have a 32" set and sit 50' away if you like it that way, you are correct, there is no perfect answer. But since he is asking opinions, MY OPINION is that 40" would be minimum. I have a 52" and sit 9-11" away depending on where I sit, and wish I could go bigger, i.e. that Samsung made a bigger set.

1080p at 32" is a waste, unless your going to use the display solely as a pc monitor

Cnet reviewers are clueless. So is anyone who tells you 1080p is "wasted" unless you have XX size TV.
It all depends on viewing distance.
I have a 32" 1080p and the resolution is extremely noticeable because I sit 2.5 feet away. If I sat 6 feet away, however, the 1080p would be wasted. Just as a 65" 1080p would be wasted if I decided to sit 15 feet away, but would be great at 8 feet.
If you want to know what the optimal viewing distance is, consult the resolution chart . It's very accurate, assuming you have 20/20 vision.
