Does Size Matter?

Our largest TV is a 19" and we also have a 13". I don't mean to imply we are not TV people. We are. Maybe more so than we should be. Still, ours look positively pathetic compared to Wife's brother's massive flat panel TVs. Perhaps we are not showing enough dedication by sticking with the smaller models. On the other hand, they are the largest that fit in their selected spaces in our home. What are you going to do?

The big screen TVs are nice, but I must admit I am bothered by the distortion. Sometimes people that are thought to be quite attractive - say anyone from Grays Anatomy or Private Practice, don't look so great THAT close up, and slightly broadened. Noses do not need to be 4" wide. Still, it was fun, and the surround sound is a nice treat....if only he had home theater carpet, rather than hardwood floors, we would have been set! Oh, and popcorn. A screen that big definitely cries out for popcorn :)

Mmmm I think i'd like a home theater some day. I'm not a huge TV watcher but it would be cool to watch movies on!

Yeah, we only have two 19" here at our house. It's fine for our regular viewing, but sometimes I'm reluctant to invite friends to watch a football game when i know they have a monster big screen and I have a puny 19", lol.
Maybe someday I'll get a flat screen, but it's pretty far down the list right now.

I like a large screen. I have a 32" flat screen, and I love it. I have wondered about getting a larger one at some time, but it occurred to me that anything larger would be overwhelming in my living room. I'll stay where I am. I must admit that come things, like sports are just awesome on a monster screen, and movies are excellent on them, too.
