I recently decided to upgrade my old Samsung ueh486400 which I bought new in 2016 I think and after reading various threads decided to wait until after black Friday ...then on an impulse I bought a 50 inch Panasonic plasma from the classified's a 2013 TX50VT65 and it's amazing for a few hundred quid...I'm blown away by how good it looks using my Manhattan Freeview box.So now I'm thinking I don't want the expense of an OLED just yet but wish I had gone a bit bigger.
.. there's a couple of these exact sets available on eBay/ classified etc in the 55 inch version .So my question is...will I notice a significant difference with a 55 compared to the 50..just wondering if anyone has had similar situation? Or shall I wait for a 65 to come up nearby?
I love the 50 but you know how it is...sets always seem to shrink after a few weeks😀.

As you've alluded to yourself, whatever you buy you will adjust to as being "normal" in pretty short order. Also if you watch SD on Freeview they will actually look worse on a larger model.

I tend to watch HD mostly but yes I have probably answered my own question.
I think I have been quite lucky in that the set I have got has had one owner and been looked after and is immaculate so will probably keep.
