    Hi all,

    (I posted this on the LCD forum earlier so apologies for any duplication !!)

    I have read various reviews and I'm looking to purchase the Pioneer PDP-nnn-XDE plasma but can't decide whether the 43 inch or the 50....

    I have a lounge 22 feet long with the seating arranged such that the plasma will be approx 15 feet away, although other seating will be approx 6-8 feet away at a 90 degree angle.

    Obviously this is a little subjective but has anyway got any views on the merits of the 43 vs 50 inch screens ??

    Cheers !!

    Well I view my 50" MXE1 from about 12ft and it suits me fine...it really is a personal choice as you say but get too close and you start to see the image structure.

    Also depends a little on what you will watch the most...if mostly TV type shows via Sky/Freeview then the 43" might be more suitable but if it will mainly be DVDs then the 50" might be better.

    I would have thought your room could take the 50" though...just make sure you get one of the best seats.

    Cheers, Lee

    I sit about 17ft from my plasma and am really glad I went for a 50" now, it looks perfect but I think a 42" would not give the big screen experience (projectors aside), so my advice would be get the 50 ", you know you want too !

    If you plan to use it mainly for watching films then I would go for the 50". On the other hand, if you rarely watch films and just like to watch tv shows then a 43" might be better.
