    As above really, does anyone know the ideal recommended viewing distances? (ideal - as I know its kind of a personal choice thing!) I'm trying to decide between the PV500 42" or 37". I'd prefer a 42" obviously, but I've got a lounge width of 10'7, so taking into account position on seat, and depth of plasma on Pana stand, I reckon I could be down to just over 9' viewing distance.

    I find it really hard to judge this in shops when stood up fending off sales assistants! :rolleyes:

    What do people suggest at this distance?

    Also - random question - do plasma's not suffer dead pixels the same as LCD's? I never read of people with pixel issues on Plasma's. This would be one of my concerns as my dead one on my PC monitor drives me nuts!!

    Any comments appreciated...

    Cheers

    Dave
