When we bought the 40-inch tv for our living room it was great because it is more convenient for the eyes. After a year we bought a tv set for our bedroom to replace the 21-inch old model tv. My wife had wanted a bigger screen but not the 40 inches, that would be too big for our bedroom. I settled for the 32-inch screen which is just right. Not much glare for the eyes and not expensive either considering that a smaller tv set consumes lesser electricity.
