    I was looking at 42" Plasmas, but then started thinking I should get a 50".

    I am going to mount the TV on the wall, about 7 to 8 feet(2.1m-2.4m) from the viewing area.

    Is this a good distance for a 50" Plasma?

    Thanks!

    2.4m minimum i would say.
    each panel will no doubt be different.

    If you're watching HD only then yes. For SD viewing at that distance 42" is more sensible.
