    I measured my room and taking into account the 13cm depth of most LCD`s minussing it off the distance i will be sat at i got 290cm/300cm`s on the tape measure from wall to my comfortable sitting posistion right upto my eye (god i bet i looked weird :D )

    after much debate and viewing im going for a 32" Screen is this about right ??? :confused:

    also considering a 32" CRT is 30" display, does that make a 32" CRT and effective 34" when comparing with CRT.


    problem is i have no idea what to get. of course HDMI, PC plugged in sometimes with perfect 1:1 mapping and component + 1 RGB scart. not bothered about speakers, but must have a black frame. Also il be buying on HP from either dixons or curry`s. is there any online Electrical shops that do finance deals ?

    my budget is around £1200

    thanks all :smashin:

    A 32" LCD will be 32", a CRT TV has tubes which are 32" the actual screen itself is slightly smaller, so you'll be looking at about a 30" screen for CRT like you said.

    great stuff.. now to find a screen, although i think im goin with the HD XD LG 32" i saw the other day in comet, its picture running an LG promo HD clip was as good as i ever want until 3D comes along that is :cool:

    im gonna go with finance though, as an incentive, my GF says i can have one if i pack the ciggy`s in. so better health and better body to watch it with. hope fully it should be around £22 per month over 48 months, she will pay £10 and il pay £10 so cigs cost me around £30 per month im gaining really :clap:
