HDTV hunting gents

Ok guys, time to get new tv's. Im looking at a 32" for the bedroom and a 50 or 60" for the living room. What do you guys recommend? Im sticking to plasma since those are cheaper and honestly I wont notice a huge difference between LCD and plasma. Plus im not a big video game player so im not worried about burn in.

I just had a thread on this for bigger sizes. Check out the Samsung 63" for a good value with a great picture.

big difference in price between a 50 and a 60" TV. 50" Series 5 Samsung around $1200 63" Seriest 5 Samsung around $2700.

why only a 32 for the bedroom? the 42" is usually the ideal size and isn't a huge step up in money (few hundred bucks) after all, your a baller right? Money means nothing?

whats your budget? What are your sources? Just telling us you want a TV is like asking what kind of 600 Sport bike should I buy.

Listen to clearwaterms, I have a 32" in a fairly small bedroom (13x11) and it is too small. 40" min for a bedroom in my opinion.

32" for the bedroom is fine, its not a huge master bedroom so that size is fine considering most the time i use it to fall alseep to.

32" for the bedroom is fine, its not a huge master bedroom so that size is fine considering most the time i use it to fall alseep to.
I have a 27" 4:3 (old living room TV) in my bedroom. Comparing sizes, the 42" is the size I intend to replace it with. It isn't a large bedroom, but the 32" is only good if the furthest person only sits a few feet away (less then 7') remember with the 16:9 aspect ratio, the TV's have gotten smaller for the same number of inches.

If you watch alot of 4:3 content, a 4:3 picture on a 32" 16:9 TV isn't that big.

Also, consider the difference in cost. a decent 32" TV will probably set you back $500, a nice 42" (because it's the most popular size) will run you about $800 if you find a nice sale. $300 for an increase of probably 50%? (thats a guess, I tried to figure out in square inches how much larger a 42" is then a 32" but its alot more then you think it is)
