About 9 years ago, after lots of research, visiting stores with a few of my favourite movies on disc, and a lot of reading the excellent discussions here; I replaced my (beautiful) Sony widescreen CRT tv with a Panasonic plasma. I got into HD on Freesat and very much enjoyed it, along with dvd's and blu-rays. I still do but now on Freeview not Freesat. The tv (TXP37X10B) still works perfectly, looks great for all the plasma reasons, and has never had any malfunction or burn-in/image retention problems. Fast forward to now and I fancy something newer; mostly for better audio connection possibilities but also for HDR. (To me 4K is 'meh' but contrast and proper blacks are where it's at.) As we all do I've looked at many screens at all price points and the only thing I've seen which runs the plasma close is OLED. The problem with that is there are no OLED's of a sensible size - they are just not made. And this is my point, on which I'd love to hear people's thoughts: who the hell thought 55" (or larger) was practical/desirable/affordable, to the point that all the serious technology is only available in tv's which could double as a dividing wall in my typical British two-bedroom home? At this stage I should make it clear that I'm essentially a music-lover and audiophile, but I love movies and have to be able to really enjoy great film-making at home. c.£1500 and upwards on a television is absurd enough in itself, but it makes me mad that everything is now so spectacularly, marriage-endangeringly huge. I DON'T want a television to dominate my home life, and as for the 'immersive experience' rubbish; (sales talk) who wants to be 'immersed' in Hollyoaks, The One Show, or TOWIE etc.? <shudder> Sit three feet in front of a tv the size of a bay window? Does anyone do that? Seems to me the manufacturers have all but abandoned making top tech available in sizes which many people seem to want; not just me. Or - as the title suggests - am I really so unusual?
