    DO people really only desire ever increasing display sizes? I can't really believe that. Or, put another way, I HOPE that isn't so. I currently have a 40" Sony W905A and I really dread the day this tv breaks, because there's literally nothing out there in the same or better quality which I have room for. Not everyone has a huge blank wall just aching for a big TV.

    Because generally people perceive having a bigger tv as better. I am saying generally. Not everyone. We have a projector for our large screen entertainment simply because we like the film look it creates

    Probably not - but the marketing potential is good, and a lot of consumers don't look beyond that into the detailed specs.

    Oh no I agree with peterb
    But yes....plenty of people just buy the biggest they can in budget or where it will be placed.
    Last time we bought a tv we got a 32" full HD (1080p) Samsung. People in the shop were actually saying let's buy the 40" 720p panel tv for a tenner less
