    Dear All

    If you could get the 37Pw7 or the 42pw6 for the same price, which one would you for in a bedroom install with a 7-10 foot viewing distance?

    My thinking was that as they have the same SD resolution, but the 37" is smaller, then the pixels will be smaller and less noticeable in the 37" (i.e. it will look a bit better).

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks.

    Am I right in thinking though that the 37" will have smaller pixels given it is the same resolution as the 42" but smaller?

    Personally would go for 37". I think the pictures better for the fact its smaller and same res. Was comparing both today at Richer sounds. 1199 sterling.
