    I went into Currys the other day to have a look at a TH42PV500 before buying one from a decent retailer. They had a 37" LG LCD on offer - the store manager told me that with my size room [17' x 24'], the addition eye movement needed to watch a 42" screen at that distance would be likely to cause headaches.

    I guess all the film industry should have asked him before building all those IMAX cinemas - they could have all bought LG LCD's and saved millions...

    While his maths might be out (I haven't checked), he's not far wrong. Movies are a very different beast from watching TV. You don't watch movies all evening every day. Field of Vision for TV probably should be less than for movies. Which is why I prefer a projector for movies and a TV for, well, TV!

    Having said that, your room does sound big enough to manage a 42" - how far back will you be sitting?

    i think we are going slightly off subject here :rotfl:
    HD or not is the question and if so very good value me thinks
    if not a kick in the ass for dixons for poor service and misleading customers
