Do you have enough space to sit 8 or more feet from the screen?


Why not make it 150" so you have to sit 25' away
and use opera glasses. Big TV's are absurd. Like
the huge ghetto plasters of the 80's, big is
not always better.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

In my office is a 15" that cost under $100, and
in the bedroom I have a 23" monitor/TV that swings over my bed

You may be correct, but aren't you taking it to extremes? You can find 39" televisions for $150 on sale at Walmart.

Let me repeat my recommendation to buy a TV with a minimum of 3 HDMI ports, but at least one should be MHL compliant. These ports have feedback for both power and for control (to reduce number of remotes).
