This is my first post - so apologies for any apparent ignorance concerning the question! I've got a 5 year old 28" 4:3 Toshiba which has served me well, but I've been desperate to get hold of a widescreen set since I got my first DVD player 3 years ago. Due to the size and configuration of my lounge, a 32" is about as big as I can go and my question is - actually how much bigger is the screen in terms of Inches (width x height) compared with a 28" 4:3 set. I know it's not going to have as much height, but I really want to know what I'll be gaining in terms of width to see if it's really worth upgrading (there's actually nothing wrong with the Tosh). I want the largest viewable screen possible for watching my DVD's. My alternative is to get the builders in, block off the double doors leading to the dining room. Then buy a new three and two seater sofa which would in turn free up the bay window to accomadate a 36" widescreen or 42" Plasma. While more preferable, my budget is unlikely to stretch something this drastic! Can anyone help? Cheers!
