    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.

    Its twice as big as their current largest range of TV's which cost several thousand pounds. I dont think this is a tv for the people.

    Why would i want it? Id attach it to the out side of my house with a screen saver of the orion nebular so that it felt like i lived in a space ship. Why, wouldnt you want to do that?

    TVs are measured in inches, a bit like the wheels on cars ...

    My TV is 46", HD Panasonic plasma. I'm quite tempted by the UHD 58" Panasonic in the John Lewis sale though.

    I also have an HD projector with a 96" wide screen when I want the full cinematic experience, but on my comfy sofa.

    32 inches. Fine, a replacement for a perfectly good 26 ins Panasonic.

    Now OH is trying his Chinese torture bit to wear me down to get a bigger one again. I hate televisions dominating a room.

    32". I thought about getting a bigger one but dragged the sofa closer instead. MSE

    Ours is 42 inches, plenty big enough for the room.

    Ours is 46" and tbh we could do with a larger one as my lounge is HUGE and it does look small but there's nothing wrong with it, it has a lovely picture and sound so until it goes kaput it's staying put
    if you lend someone 20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    We've got a Samsung 32" CRT, which I managed to get for FREE! a few years ago, before that we had a Panasonic 22" CRT we were given by my parents when they upgraded to a LCD flatscreen.

    Here we go, I even took a photo of it, since I'm such a sad bar steward

    49 inch. We would ideally have gotten something smaller but that was the smallest available of the particular tv we wanted. No other tv fulfilled all the specs this one offered. And it was in last years sales.

    42" Panasonic Plasma. Few years old now.
    Big enough really.
    At least until it packs up.

    Funnily enough we never appreciated it in our old home as the sound was that good we had to keep it down ( mid terrace). Now we love it

    Mine is 32", big enough, but when I replace it I will probably get a bigger one maybe 40" perhaps, not sure that is pretty big. Problem is where it would go and the space taken up.

    Like most things I have it is big enough to do the job.
