How to determine the right tv size for my living room?

Hi guys,

I still using CRT tv now, and have been trying to catch up with the lcd/plasma tv happenings..
Is there a rule of thumb or formula to determine the ideal size for my living room?

From my sofa to the wall where the tv will be mounted, the distance is 8-9 feet. My dad says 32 inch looks alright but i think 37/42 will be a more ideal size..

Also, do glossy screens pose lots of glare problem?

Thank you for reading..

Completely wrong concept. This type of reply is only from those who aleady bought HD Ready TV. Or sales person in those retail shop trying to sell all the HD Ready stock.

If price is the same, around the same or lower. Always pick a Full HD TV. This is the way it go. You will find the dot pitch is much smaller and almost not noticeable at same view distance. Also it covers about 20%+ more area even you are viewing non HD program.

In the next few months. You are going to see Full HD model even for 32".
for gaming on ps3 and watching blu-ray movie, i agree full-hd is important

but for watching media corp or cable tv, hd-ready is sufficient

correct me if i wrong.

since full HD tvs are cheap these days, just get full HD lah. samsung 5 series are really a great bargain.

Unhappy Digital Times pages 14 and 15 compares HD-ready with full HD

i dont fully agree with their views. must buy 46 inch then can see the difference...
