I will sit around 4-5m away from the screen.
SONY KDL32P3020 - 410 POUNDS
PANASONIC TX 32LMD70 - 430 POUNDS
TOSHIBA REGZA 37X3030D - 700 POUNDS
SONY KDL37P3020U - 500 POUNDS

Definitely the 40V3000.Its the best at this price range.The 40" is the very minimum as from your distance 46" would be the ideal

Not as good as the Panasonic PX80. It can be had for £649 now which is over £100 cheaper than the V3000. I recently swapped my V3000 for th PX80 as I was not happy with the Black levels at all. It's also not the best at mition handling, but then again, plasmas are better than LCD's at this currently.

So would you go for a 42" plasma over a similar sized LCD? What about a projector instead?

Hi, Sorry for late reply, I've been away,
I mainly will use it for Xbox 360 (must be HD), films (DVD as good quality as possible, will upgrade to Blue Ray in the next 12 months), T.V (mainly football, not really bothered about resolution too much - just decent).
Thanks
