Why not get a Plasma or flat panel LCD. Wirh either, viewing angle would not be a problem. Any rear pojection will have a narrow viewing angle.
I have a cabinet, width 40.7 inches, and approx. 30-32 in. above floor for a family room tv. The viewing angles can be as great as 45-50 degrees. My kids like to watch from the floor and the sofa puts us at approx 18-20 inches below the tv. I've checked the sony bravia, sony kdf-e42a10 and the samsung 42 dlp. We have HD signal. TV is for all use, not just DVD. Playstation too. Viewing angle is a potential concern with DLP and the rear projection LCD. I can shim the back, but will the side angle be a problem? Would you spend the money for the Bravia considering it will not be wall mounted? Sales help has given me conflicting information. Help! Any input is appreciated. I would like to make this purchase soon
