they're all wall mountable
they'll have mounting holes on the back of the tv and you simply screw them onto a mounting kit

Plasma is alittle big for a bedroom?

They have a big beroom;-)

don't mount it too high - looks awful, it's not the way tv's are meant to be viewed. may be better off getting a good quality stand and then there's space for consoles, dvd player etc.

mine is mounted about half way up my wall and is a good height to look at

Good point still thinking of a few options at the moment, may go for an lcd (smaller)

how old are your kids they dont need a plasma screen spend the money onsomething useful like thyre education

Sorry to put a bad point on this one but I read a story about a boy being crushed by a mounted TV

It totally put me off mounting my daughters one.

If you do put one up, please be extra careful

Have I bought one? No. Blooming heck, was only asking opinions. I work hard, my kids study hard. Why so arguementative?:thinking:

Stop bloody moaning :roll: What people spend their money on is their choice. If the kids have got a big room, surely they're eyes are going to strain more trying to look at a small TV rather than a large one. It's not the size of the TV that would be an issue, it's how close they sit to it.

I didn't, but that might be something to do with them not being available to buy back then.

LCD's weigh a lot less so would probably be a better choice.

[COLOR="Red"]Yes he is 6 and he has a wall mounted TV[/COLOR], shoot me:thumbsup:He needed quite a big tv though for other issues as well as having a huge room, lcd was more practical as we could not leave it on a stand.



Same here with my 6-year-old. My 4-year-old has one wall-mounted too, as it frees up room on the top of his furniture for educational things such as books/games ;-)

Thanks for all your advice, going for an lcd tv afterall. lighter and not so big. Boys don't know about their TV just yet, they'll be really pleased. They do tend go out and play sports etc quite a bit and not stuck in their bedroom

It really depends Tinks on what ground rules you set. If they are allowed to watch tv whenever and how often they like, you could be setting them up for social and health problems in later life. If its balanced with lots of exercise and other activities and the tv is used in moderation thats a slightly different scenario. Personally I think 6 is too young but it all depends on what else is happening in their lives and if they have a balanced lifestyle.......

:w00t: Think that's a bit over the top.

And it's easy to control what my two boys watch; that's what Parental lock on Sky is for :thumbsup:
