    Hi,

    I previously submitted in these forums a couple of month's back. I had heard about a wall mountable DLP rear projection TV from Samsung. Unfortunatly, it was not available in the UK at the time.

    I was hoping that the technology had progressed over the past couple of months :confused:

    Could someone please let me know of any 42"-50" wall mountable options, for Rear projection TV's ?
    I'm looking for the best possible viewing experience from my Sky box and Media Center PC.

    I had read this URL about the Sony Bravia range : http://www.4rfv.co.uk/industrynews.asp?ID=45316 . Although it's mentioned that it has the same dimensions as a Plasma, there's nothing quoted about it being wall mountable.


    Thanks

    What exactly do you mean by wall mountable? Unlike Plasma and LCD all RP TVs have some significant depth, but are fairly light weight. So, a suitable shelf would make pretty well any RP TV wall mountable.

    @LV426 : Just seeking something on the slimmer side which can be slightly tilted down to improve the viewing angle.

    My understanding is that rear projection Tv's have a superior picture from everything bar CRT. But the pain is wall mounting. It would be useful to have a wall mounting option to keep the nipper away from the screen!

    @Razor : Correct me if I'm wrong, but I understood the Thomsons to have poor reviews.

    Like I say, I'm puzzled as to what makes a Thomson wall mountable, yet a Samsung* not wall mountable? I feel certain that I could wallmount a Samsung* if I wanted to. What does the Thomson have, that the Samsung* does not have?

    (* - for example)
