Wink Bedroom TV Advice...

Hi Everyone,

I'm new here, and I could really use some good advice. It's time to upgrade my bedroom TV. I was pretty much set on the Sony KD-34XS955 34" CRT but now I'm thinking bigger might be better (isn't it always!) I want as much impact as I can get in there. I watch a lot of movies in there, maybe someday with a date...

Anyway, the room is 10' 9" wall to wall. I've been looking at the Sony KDF-E42A10 42" and the TOSHIBA 46HM95 46" What do you all think? Do you think this will help me get a date? Ha! Anyway, thanks for any and all help...

Yeah, because so many techphiles have models on their arms.

To the matter at hand... Best Buy currently has the 42" Sony on sale for $1,599, that's $400 off the retail price. Great deal in my eyes, so you might want to check it out. They also have 2 years no interest when using the BB card.

My question for you though, do you live by yourself (or with the folks)? The reason I ask, seems like a waste to get a nice size TV in throw it in your bedroom. Do you have a nice setup for your living room?

Hi,

No, no video except an old CRT in the living room that I leave on CNN perpetually. Excellent audio setup, 7.1 surround sound. My living room is mostly my office right now, and until I get some stuff cleared out, I won't be putting anything nice video-wise there. I'll probably go with something like the Sony SXRD for the living room but right now it's all about the bedroom.

My inspiration is high-end hotel rooms, where they have the big screen rise out of the cabinet at the foot of the bed. I love that, but my room really can't do that setup. At 10' 9" it's just not big enough. I need to have the TV against the wall and the bed against the other. I was hoping that someone else here might have some experience with a similar tv in their bedroom. You know, to tell me how they like it, and if I should stick with the 34" or go BIG! Thanks...

I will probably move my 50" DLP to my bedroom in a couple of years when I upgrade the HT room. I have had it for less than 1 year so far so it it a couple of years away, but that is my plan.

Oh, and if you already have the girl in the bedroom, I don't think the TV will change anything, unless you do not perform well.

Buy an LCD or Plasma for the wall. 37-42" You can't go wrong.

Buy it at Costco where you can return it in 5 years if it fails and not have to pay for a wasteful "third party insurance scheme." You can get a wall mount for $100 at Wal Mart.

Wouldn't a 'bad' movie work better?

Talking If going big do 42" plasma, if not 34" CRT HD

Ok,

I have to say in a bedroom situation. Large can be good, but not large as in a big projection CRT, or even an LCD or DLP is too big unless you have a huge master suite. For a traditional bedroom I like you original idea a Sony 34" CRT preferably HD capable. I was thinking of upgrading my 27" Sony CRT to this! That's going to be one deep, nice size tube tv. You'll need a good stand that will hold that and a small movie collection. I think the quality will be top notch and HD would be great! If you must go big make sure to get a 42" or smaller plasma. The thiness is oh so sexy while still maintaining size and not killing your room space.

As long as you're going with a stand instead of wall mount, you can consider the 42" DLP & LCD RPTVs... half the depth and weight of a CRT. Priced like the EDTV plasmas & real HD.

Thumbs up

lol, yeah a 'bad' movie could be better...I guess that depends on the couple involved, if they need more of a stimulant Hidefman, I just placed a 37" plas at the end of my bed. I'm roughly about 7 feet away, and it looks awesome.
