I am ready to buy either the Sony KDFE42A12 or KDFE50A12 rear projection sets. There may well be better sets available for the money, but as a die hard Sony fan, I'm limiting my choice to these. The question is which - 42" or 50"? The difference in price is not important, as we're talking only £100 - £190 difference between the two. One half of me says buy the 50" - "biggest bang for the buck", "if you get the 42", you wished you'd got the bigger version". Even the wife agrees with these statements. The other half of me thinks that maybe 50" is just too big and possibly vulgar. Also, the bigger it gets, the more I'll notice artifacts or any other picture shortcomings. I currently have a 32" Sony CRT Wide screen, which is in the corner of the lounge. The new 42" or 50" will take the same place. It was interesting to note that, even the 50" would not protrude any further forward than the current 32" set, because of it's slim depth. My wife currently sits about 8ft away and I sit about 11ft away from the screen. No jokes about me not getting on with the Mrs - we just like our own sofas! Any advice on which to go for would be greatly appreciated.
