    1 x Panasonic 36PF10 (100hz)
    1 x Panasonic 32PF10 (100hz)

    Although both the Panny's deliver a superb picture (in my eyes) I'm shortly to be selling the 32PF10 and switching to a Toshiba 36" to allow Prog Scan viewing. That means I'll have the Panny 36" in my bedroom... yeeee haaaar!

    Panasonic PL10 (100hz)
    Bought solely on picture quality. Sound is pretty sh** but mine is hooked up to an amp anyway.

    I've got a Leowe Xelos 28". I wouldn't buy a 28"er again no matter what size room I had.

    Do yourself a favour and go for at least a 32"er.

    Sound always seems to match the picture size. I feel my sounds system is well and truly restricted by the tiny screen. The experience as a whole is limited. My friend also has a 28"er. He decided to get himself a projector. The sound sounds so much more when watching a film on the projector. I'm not saying you should go for a projector, just make sure you're not holding your ears and squinting at the screen thats all.

    toshiba 36zp18p great set doesn't look big due to good design. forget your room size-get the biggest screen size you can, I had 32" in 12 ft. square room and it 'grew' too small

    IDTVs are very good for general TV watching - better than a box

    Sony KV32FQ75 and it rocks. Early model though, no vertical bar scrolling as observed by lots of people on here. Fantastic picture, never tried the sound.

    Loewe Aconda 9381ZW in Light Stratos Metallic. Leaving the picture aside, it has a beautiful high gloss finish using the same metallic paint that BMW use on their cars - I mean what more could you ask for? Sometimes I just sit and look at the set without even switching it on :D.

    Thomson 44" RPTV.

    I love it, had a few problems but they're getting sorted.

    As with most RPTV's night time viewing is best, IMO.

    Always went with the big names Sony, Philips and Panasonic etc, but this time I took a gamble and it's paid off. The Thomson had good reviews and to me had a better picture quality than others in the store, pictures are stunning, DVD especially.

    It really gives movies the impact they deserve. :D

    Next upgrade will hopefully be a little bigger, may even be a projector, just for those special moments. ;)

    To me bigger is better when it comes to watching movies, if your room and budget will allow then I would recommend a RPTV, the prices of some RPTV's are much the same as decent 32".

    :D

    Sony KV32DX100

    its being swapped for a 36" Phillips P+ 9607. im a bit worried the 9607 wont be as good in the PQ department as my curent sony.

    I had a 28inch widescreen...it was too small (much smaller than a 4x3 28incher) , buy at least 32 if you can.

    Used to have a Tosh 29" 4:3 which was superb. Even the Dolby Surround was good (no digi around then). Went widescreen with a 32" Philips, but found that the picture in non-widescreen 4:3 was too small after the Tosh (I guess it equates to about a 25" 4:3 - something to watch out for if you're going the same route. 28" Widescreens start to look like portables in 4:3 if you're used to a big picture). Now upgraded to a Tosh 50" RPT and, despite some teething problems, am very very impressed. Funny how after a couple of days the impact of the screen size is no longer there - I suppose it's a bit like a drug, now I'm dying for a 57" model!!.
