    If you find one I would hope it comes with binoculars or something.

    You don't need 1080p on a TV that small unless you're watching it from a foot away.

    so there is no loss in detail from 720 to 1080?

    I'm assuming you mean from 1080 to 720...the answer is of course there is less detail but unless you're sitting extremely close to a display that small your eyes will never see the difference.

    Gateway has a great LCD monitor, not a tv as it does not have the cable connections.

    but its 24" 1080P and a fantastic PC monitor, I use it for a secondary monitor.

    that being said, try googling for your best answer.

    you would want a 1080p small tv if you use it as a computer monitor too. thats why 1080p was very important to me.

    but i agree on that 24" Gateway PC monitor is AWESOME. Has DVI, HDMI, and i think 2 components. looking at the monitor at work too it looks amazing.

    Let's take a step back and find out what is actually appropriate for your 'small' room.

    HOW FAR ARE YOU REALISTICALLY GOING TO BE SITTING?

    At 6 feet, you don't really want a display under 32 inches. At 12 feet, 60" is easily the right size to go with.

    More accurately, at 6 feet, according to THX standards, you want a display 48" WIDE! That's over a 50" diagonal to conform with those standards.

    To often people say "I want something this size xxx" and then they sit 10 feet from the display... and it's simply wrong. If you are in a small room, first figure out your realistic seating distance, then determine the size you need. Don't decide when you are a noob that you need a certain size, yet have no clue WHY or IF that size is appropriate for you.

    This is a calculator for how big, optimally, the screen size should be for any given seating distance. For 24" it's six feet.

    Format neutral, but glad it's over.

    In answer to your question unless you go with a 1080P computer monitor around 20 inches the smallest 1080P LCD TV on the market is the Sharp. The Sharp LC-32GP1U and LC-32D62U both are 32 inch 1080P LCD HDTV. They are only 60 HZ native refresh rate so it will not give you correct 1080P/24 refresh rates.

    Also what AV integrated said in post number 9 is correct. You need to determine how far you will be seating from the screen. If you are a foot or two from the screen a 32 inch should be fine. 10 feet away a 70 inch screen would be ideal for 1080P quality. If you are watching lower quality 720P or 480I you can seat much further away since the quality is not that good. A 1080P display allows one to seat much closer to the display since the details are excellent.
    Some people that have BLU-RAY and HD-DVD Notebook computers with 20.1 inch 1080P quality screens seat one foot from the screen and have the Notebook computer in their bed on top of them enjoying the movie. Makes the image look like a big screen since one is seating so close.

    I'm using a Samsung Plasma as my computer monitor. Yeah 42" is great but not at 1024x768. I'm either gonna get a 4065f or a notebook....I'm heavily leaning towards the new TV just dreading trying to ship my plasma.

    Yes, your signature is fine. The term noob is used all the times on the other forums I moderate over at Projector Central. It applies as well at Audioholics. As far as A/V stuff goes, there are far more informed sites than this one for video and audio technologies. To many audiophytes spreading misinformation around here instead of the basic raw science.

    Proper THX seating = 1.5x screen width (not diagonal). That's a 96" wide screen at 12 feet viewing for 'proper' cinema effect.

    Is that measured to the edge of the seat or the eye ball? I ask because I just bought a 52" Lcd that I use for my computer screen and view movies on occasion. The screen is 84" to the tip of my nose. Could I have gone bigger?
