If two different sized LCDs (say 26" and 32") have the same number of pixels, will the smaller one have a sharper picture (assuming i'm the same distance away from both)?

At what distance does greater pixel resolution make no difference? Is this the most important factor when choosing screen size?

ta,

Adam.

There are a few articles floating about on the net like this one - the most important factor is probably your personal preference...

Smaller TV will be sharper. But large is nice.

If you're in the market for a new LCD TV make sure you consider the new models with Freeview HD built in, all of sony's are 1080p panels too.

Original resolution can be lost when the image is scaled aswell, which is invarible with the smaller sizes like 1024*768 and 1366*768.

You can never see the original image quality when you don't have 1:1 pixel mapping, ie 1080 image on a 1080 display.
same goes for 1280*720 image on a 1366*768

This is only relevant if you are using the LCDTV as an (HT)PC monitor for viewing text ie. browsing desktop applications. If you are buying for direct channel viewing or with a DVB-* set-top box, then it isn't crucial.
