Projection setup with 110" screen.

It really just depends on your room. I like 32" as it's a decent size for most rooms and cant easily stand on a dresser.

I'm going to hang it up on the wall. Where is a good place to get a 32"?

I have a Vizio in my room as for my TV and another setup with one as my monitor. No problems with them at all. They are about 398 at walmart. The only issue with that is they are only 720p, but being a bedroom TV I wasn't too terribly worried about that.

edit: www.monoprice.com for your wall mount, they are cheap as hell and a good product.

Get the biggest tv that you can afford/fit. So far in my life I have never said 'man, i wish i got the smaller tv'. I have a 52" lcd in my bedroom.

I'm waiting for the 50"+ LCDS come down in price, so I can put the Sammy 57" LCD in there. Then again, our bedroom is twice the size of most bedrooms. 21' x 15'

37" in my bedroom and I agree. Go as big as you can. I'll upgrade it to at least a 50" this year and put the 37 in the garage.

Depends on how far away you are from the tv, have a 40" about 5 feet in front of my bed, and it could be a little bigger.

I have a 50" plasma in mine. It's a good size. Hell, I had my old 65" in there for a while, and it didn't seem too big for me, but it took up too much room.

As long as I don't have to move my head around to watch the whole screen, it isn't too big for my taste.

We bought a 42" Toshiba Regza from Conn's for $649, its a 1080p 120hz unit and its bad ass and just the right size for a bedroom. Well if I was a true baller I would go with a HD projection unit.

Look for a 50" plasma... You can pick up a 720p for really cheap, and it will work great in a bedroom.

60" LG plasma in mine. Not to big and not to small. 32" in too small. I have one of those in the bathroom.

I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

I did a 37" 720p Toshiba. I wanted the 40", but I missed the sale and settled on the 37" since it was a good deal @ CompUSA in Plano (Tigerdirect retailer). We also didn't want something so big that it would take away from wanting to get out of bed and use our 65" home theater. You're not going to notice a difference between 720p and 1080p in that size range either. They say the TV has to be 50"+ to notice a difference.

Also, if you Google "what size lcd tv should i buy" that will give you a lot of hits on what size you need depending on your viewing distance, etc. ie 6-8ft 32"-37", 10-12 ft 40"-46"

Try this calc out:

Just bought the Samsung LN46A650 for the apartment, expensive, but I'm starting to set up a living room entertainment center.

Walmart has this baby on sale right now:

Vizio 42" V0420E Eco 1080p LCD HDTV for $598 with free site-to-store shipping

I had a 32" Vizio 720p LCD for 2 years (just sold it to my girlfriend since she needed a new TV and I wanted a larger one).

I loved that thing, but wanted something that I'd keep for much longer and think this will turn in to my bedroom set up in a few years when I move into a larger place, and Samsung seems to have the best LCD's out right now IMO

I just got two 32" LG LCD's for the kids rooms. They are a decent size and the price was right at $450 a piece. 720P though but with that small of a screen I wouldnt stress over no 1080I/P

Do you all really watch that much TV in the bedroom you need/want a large screen. Hell, I'd be happy with no TV in the bedroom. I maybe watch 15 minutes at night, then I'm ready to roll over and go to sleep!

They've done studies you know.... 60% of the time, it works every time

I agree, the wife wants a tv in our bedroom and I refuse. We had one for a little while and hardly ever used it. I hate watching TV in bed, unless of course the wifey wants to watch some porn.
