    Hi guys i'm gonna buy a new set and i need some advice 'bout it.
    I'm really interested in Panny TX28PL1 or Sony KV28LS35 but the question is: "Are 28" widescreen sets too small?". In particoular i need to know if the picture is fine with Playstation2 or Xbox (with DVD it should be fine) or if its too small. The room where i've to place the tv is not very big, kind of 3 metres from the tv to the place where i'm seat, so what do you think?
    Thanks ;)

    My previous TV was a 28" Panny widescreen, room size 3M x 4M. About right really- a 32" is too deep (takes up too much room, depth wise)

    Although saying that I'm now using a 42" RPTV, that in fact is slimmer than the 28"!!

    28" is ok but i'd go for a 32" if you could stretch to it.:cool:

    Size does matter when it comes to displays imo:D
    the bigger the better:devil:

    Just went from a 28" to a 32" in a 16' x 11' room and the extra screen size makes a huge difference.

    Go for the 32" if you can. 3 metres to the TV should be fine for a 32".

    28" is very small unless you are only a couple of metres from the set. As mentioned above they are also very deep for their size. 32" sets are better but for the price of a good one you can almost buy a 42" RPTV which, as Nathan mentioned, is about the same depth as a 20" CRTV set.

    I've currently got a 43"RPTV at home and a 29" 4:3 CDTV in my flat. I was going to buy a 28" WS set for the flat but the viewing distance is about 4m and when I measured out the screen it was tiny.

    I guess it all comes down to what the space you've got in your lounge and of course your budget.

    Thank you very much guys. Anyway the thing is that i've found the Panny 28PL1 at 600 € and the 32PL1 at 1000 € O_O, there are kind of 400 € of difference between the 28" set and the 32". So what i have I to do?
    In any case do you know any 32" 50hz widescreen tv not too expensive (my budget is 800-900 €) and first of all with a great picture?
    Thanks again.

    Look at the 32" 50Hz Sonys then, both LS35 and DX40 under £1000
