I am looking to buy my first plasma screen, and after research am thinking about a wall-mounted Philips 42PF9966. However, today I got a mail from a mate who said that he bought 37", and said that at 10ft away it is just OK, and any closer would be too grainy. My distance from the screen is going to be just under 10ft, so I am now concerned that I may get this nice large screen and then find the picture too grainy as I may be too close. Any advice on whether I should go for a smaller screen? Also, any advice on the height for wall mounting - I've seen anything from "above fireplace" to eye level when sat down, which is quite a difference. Lastly, the usual comments welcomed on the choice of Philips screen. Cheers.
