This is the 55

Which one would be a better picture?

Also is there anything in the same price range and size for the quality WITH 120 Frame Rate?

Any type is cool but the price has to be less than 2 gs

Sony 60A3000 can be gotten for around 1800 at Amazon, Best Buy and Sears. The 55 and 50 are proportionally less. Got my 60 at BB using the Amazon price of about 1800 price matching. 120 hz and amazing pic.

Umm what is proportionall less? In price?

I cant get a 60 but if i got the 50 or 55 what would look better?

If you can afford the 55", and you have room for the 55", I would go for the larger set.

You should also consider the viewing distance and the amount of SD vs HD content you watch.

I have the previous generation SXRD 50" KDS-50A2000. I specifically wanted a 50" set because I still watch a lot of SD content and SD can look bad at larger than 50". However, when watching something like an HD DVD, especially a 2:35 aspect ratio DVD, a larger set would be nicer.

Yeah the room is small though it is a loft on the second floor you are at least 6 feet away from the tv.

50s seem to be less distorted.

Anyother recommendations but they have to be at sears im going to use my points have at least a 1000 dollars worth.

I just bought a 60A3000 (I know you're looking at the 50" and the 55"). Just wanted to chime in and say that with this TV (1080p, 120Hz, etc.) the picture is great, and you can sit closer than you might (actually, being able to sit closer for high def material is a property of all high def sets). I'm moving my couch 2ft closer, so that I'll be sitting 10' away, approx.

And, when I first got it, 60" seemed vast. Now it seems just right. :)

Whatever you choose, good luck. I'm sure you'll like it.

I just bought the new Bravia 55" on sale with an additional 12% off for $1625. I also bought a new LG 42" 1080p LCD. The Bravia's picture is much more deep looking, almost 3d. It is stunning. I sit about 10' away and it seems just right.
