    How big is your TV ? 9th Jan 18 at 2:15 PM
    I've got two televisions, the one here in the lounge is 67cm. The other in the back kitchen is smaller at 42cm.
    Samsung have just announced the latest from them, The Wall is 396cm
    Why would anyone want somerhing like that ? There must be many people who don't even have a room that big.

    55”. Does the job. I also have floorstanding speakers either side of it because the speakers in TVs are awful. I do enjoy TV shows, films and gaming though so if I wasn’t into these I’d probably go more basic.

    As for the TV in the OP they probably don’t even aim to sell any, it’s just a marketing ploy so they can say they’ve got the biggest. I’d be surprised if the price is below £100k anyway so not exactly for your average consumer.

    Mine is 32 inches and rather too big for the space. Could have done with something smaller but at the time I was looking to buy, there seemed to be only very small available which were too small.

    My last TV was a nice 26 inch and was fine for the space and lasted me years. Very sad when it gave up a few years ago.

    if you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    I'm nearly deaf in one ear and for years I've used cordless headphones to listen to the telly. And just lately I've been using subtitles as well, don't really need them but it's handy if you don't quite catch something if somebody is mumbling, saves rewinding again and again if you don't understand it.

    42 inch in the living room, 32 inch in the kitchen.

    I think there are 2 portable and one bigger CRT tellys in the loft.

    It doesn't matter how big it is, it still shows the same rubbish on it!
