It's big by our standards ... 47" ... not really big in today's world, I suppose. For the moment, it's on the floor ... for the moment, I'm using the speakers in the TV ... for the moment, I don't have a Blu-ray player hooked up to it. It's just fine, I'm not complaining. We watched Ugly Betty as the first show on the new set ... very colorful :-). It already feels like it's been here forever. Can't wait for Mad Men.
