Hi everyone,

I'm thinking of buying a 50 inch tv to replace my 37 inch one but have measured my wooden tv unit and it would over hang the sides by about 4 inches on each side.
would that be a problem i.e would it be unstable?
thanks for any advice :)

my 42" over hangs my cheap argos unit by about 6" each side, never had a problem - its a plasma too, so its heavy.

It'll be fine Missp27, mine does too, long as you put it on the stand first!

I don't really find 50" big enough, that's why I've upgraded to 56"

Really?! I'm worried about it being too big lol, sit about 8 foot away from the tv, is it the right size for the distance or should I go smaller?

8 foot with SD stuff might be poor. Think they recommend 12 foot for 50 inch.

I sit 10 and my 37 is a bit small, am going for a 46 next.

Thats a slippery slope your on, 6 months down the line that 56"er will start to look like a 14" portable.
I ended up going the projector route and now have 220" of screenage.

I think I may have to move my sofas round to sit further away lol

all depends on the content u watch if its a lot of sd stuff u will be thinking hmm this nice big tv looks a lot worse than that old 37" i chucked out.
i suggest u look at 42" - 46"

Get a massive TV then! :) It wont look massive in a few months.

When I went from 32" to 42" it looked massive, now don't notice. My projector screen at 82" looked massive until my bro bought a 108" screen (take up nearly a whole wall!) now my screen looks tiny.

Going to go look at it tomorrow morning. Got my dad who has a van on standby lol :p

50" is about right for 8 foot. 42" is too small.

SD will be fine from that distance

THX Screen Size Recommended Range
35" 3.5' - 5.0' (1.0 - 1.5 m)
40" 4.0' - 6.0' (1.2 - 1.8 m)
50" 5' - 7.5' (1.5 - 2.2 m)
60" 6.0' - 9.0' (1.8 - 2.7 m)
