I had the choice (with my budget) of a 32" 720 or a 26" 1080. I went with the 26" and it's just the job. TV is wall mounted about 10 feet away from my head.
I have a 22" hd tv...services perfectly fine for our needs... does Xbox and tv....happy days
Just a suggestion: if you're going to be feeding it purely HDMI, then a PC monitor may well give you more bang for your buck (of course though it won't have a TV tuner built in for freeview or anything)
Most nights I can make do with an iphone.
No projector thats for sure. My decent system is all setup in the lounge but have moved and streaming on the laptop just isn't working now in the bedroom. I'm thinking a decent 26" now, it will only 10 feet away at most and can get a good make instead of the budget 32".
Id recommend these guys Welcome to Crampton & Moore online store - - Crampton & Moore (TV) Ltd and obviously Richer Sounds.
I had a 40" from them not so long back, great deal with 3D glasses etc.
