    Went off optimum viewing distances when I was looking so 50" (Panasonic VT65) from about 2m away. Do want to upgrade to a UHD set in the future but only for HDR so not in any massive rush.

    Haier 32 inch 720p IPS and I am happy. But planning to get a high end 55 inch quantum dot based TV from LG or Samsung. 55 inch LED without the QLED/Nanocell goodies is affordable but not appealing to the eyes.

    49" 4K Sony VA. I have a nasty astigmatism and upgraded from a 40" HD when I switched to vari-focals, as I'm too lazy to keep swapping my specs around. Don't really want to go any bigger as it would swamp the front room.

    Re: QOTW: How big is your TV?

    65" 4k is my main screen, and 43" 4k is on my desk next to 28" 4k, 24" monitor, 32" 720p tv and 19" 4:3 LCDs on each end, in a huge row, and there's usually 2 or 3 laptops in front of that lot. there's also my old 50" plasma sitting against the wall unused

    i got my first 50" plasma about 2003 for £3k, which was with £700 discount. i had it so many years it was worth it. the 65" 4k was less than £700 though. i'm thinking of getting a 75" as prices are reasonable, but then 85" screens are coming affordable now so i may go for that. i have a full 7.1 setup and blackout blinds so the room is more like a cinema room. i recently did some home upgrades and moved the sofa closer to the tv so with no extra cost i have a bigger visual area, so it's like a free upgrade to a bigger tv

    hifi/cinema/music/gadgets are my thing and i get my moneys worth with all the time i spent watching. moreso now i'm WFH. less commute time means more time to watch stuff

    i have a bunch of projectors too, but quality is't the same, and i went OTT with a 120" screen which caused hassle with the layout of the centre speaking with the screen up, so i'm one of the few people who must have a 120" screen in their kitchen (albeit folded up)

    hopefully one day we will get those wallpaper type screens that you used to see in sci fi movies

    Re: QOTW: How big is your TV?

    32" 1080p Samsung, about 8 years old so not that "Smart" anymore - use a Roku Streaming Stick+ for the smarts these days.

    Don't really want a much bigger telly than that, beyond 32" they tend to dominate a room. Is it a living room or is it a TV lounge?

    Re: QOTW: How big is your TV?

    43" 4K LG TV.

    Mainly for if any visitors want to watch something, but it's also there for the occasional console use and the rare times I might feel like watching something via a TV rather than DVDs/Blu-Rays or Netflix/iPlayer/etc. via PC.

    Re: QOTW: How big is your TV?

    Right now I'm using the TV we inherited when my grandfather passed away, a 27" Samsung, easily a decade+ old (pre-smart TV era by a margin) due to my old 32" Samsung HE5500 screen going belly up. I did, briefly, have a more modern 32" Samsung & a 32" JVC model before sending both back. A combination of rubbishrubbishrubbishrubbishe user interface, which appears to still be doing the rounds (looks pretty but user focused/speedy it isn't) and a picture quality that was fuzzy as hell and full of chromatic aberrations on the Samsung, meant it went back. Meanwhile the later JVC model picture gave me motion sickness (unlike my fathers 32" JVC which has a surprisingly good image quality, even upscaled SD looks good but you can get that model any more).

    I'm currently eyeballing the (very) new Samsung QE32Q50A a 32" QLED HD screen (utterly pointless going 4K, most of my viewing is upscaled SD, which'll look even worse scaled up to that kind of resolution, and getting even a 40" screen in the space I've got available isn't possible). I can, however, put up with the crap interface of the Samsung if the picture quality is good enough (I watch a lot of my TV via my Humax DVR so TV interaction would be simply to switch it to the HDMI input and never interact with it again once on). Otherwise I'm up the swanny when it comes to 32" screens with a good picture.

    Re: QOTW: How big is your TV?

    50" Panasonic 1080p telly that I got in 2015. I'll bother upgrading the TV to 4K when this one goes bust. The distance to the set from the chairs in the lounge means there won't be a perceivable difference anyhow. I'm more interested in 4K gaming as opposed to movies, and the HTPC under the TV can only push that in older titles.

    Re: QOTW: How big is your TV?

    46" Sony Bravia from 2012, has useless 3D but the picture qualtiy is still good for how old it is. Its an IPS panel at 1080p, when I shove the PS4 on it changes "scene" to 12bit. No idea what it changes just looks the same to me.

    Pnasonic plasma 46" (I think) It's great, I'll keep it until it dies.

    Re: QOTW: How big is your TV?

    48" Samsung. Got it for 500 USD about five years ago. Didn't want to spend a ton since I didn't know how much I'd use it. Have been pretty happy with the choice. My former roommate had a 55", but it was a cheap brand and the picture quality was rubbish compared to my Samsung.

    My new roommate has a projector with a display of at least 100 inches across, so we watch movies on that now. I wouldn't say that's the reason I moved in, but I wouldn't say it's not the reason either.
