    I sit about 2.5 metrs away form my tv.And now ready to move up to a widescreen and don`t know what size to get a 28 or 32.
    To me 28 seems quite small .

    It's up to you really.
    At that distance I wouldn't go beyond 42 ". :D

    Probably 32 " ? :cool:

    The answer is almost certainly 32", but it depends on what you're used to.

    What size is your present 4:3 TV, please?

    my size is a philips 28" and been looking around the shops and prices for 32" is very high.
    Is they any good,well know and good service net shops that give good prices for tv`s.
    I`m looking for top grade websites,more worried about how much money to transfer and not get proper goods.

    Ewin,

    I'm afraid a 28" widescreen display is going to appear smaller than your 28" standard display.

    (Something to do with human eye/brain interface because we use height to judge apparent size.)

    So it looks as if it will have to be 32", despite the cost.

    If you're worried about losing your money, can I suggest a search of the John Lewis threads.

    Good luck. :)

    I`m sorry it`s a 25" NOT 28" .I miss typed.
    Seen a philips 28 for £322 + £20 delivery or a samsung 32" for £362 + £34 to derlivery.
    Are samsumg any good and is it worth getting that one rather than the philips.

    I'm afraid you get what you pay for really.
    If you are on a budget and really can't stretch to more than about 350 quid, you will just not get a good 32" TV.
    More often than not, Philips is better than Samsung. Check the specs of both TV's and that should show the difference in the two sets.
    When parting with your money, its always best to see these TV's in action. Pop down to your local retailer and have a look at some 28 and 32" TV's before ordering off the net, you may really regret not doing so.....
