guys, try as I might to get an answer to this quesiton by 'searching' for keywords, I'm still no clearer as to: when is a TV too big for a certain viewing distance, especially a relatively short one??? My wife and I want a TV for our bedroom and our heads will be roughly 8 FEET from the screen. So, will a 42" screen look too big - I'm extremely worried about being able to notice slight flaws much more obviously from that distance with a 42" as opposed to a 37" or 32"??? The fact is that we are upgrading from a 20" old CRT that displays flawless pictures, even with heavily compressed copy DVDs from china. Our main TV in the living room is a JVC 26" which we view from 9 feet and that's always been great..... very hard choice to make considering that many believe CRT picture quality to be better than plasma/LCD. I'm leaning towards going for a 37" because when I visited my local Currys the other day and slight imperfections with picture quality were more noticeable on the Panasonic 42" PX60 than the Toshiba 37WLT66.... even a perfect factory made Return of the King showed up some flaws on the 42" when viewed from roughly 6-8 feet. really pleading with everyone's help on this one!!
