"Yup, flat panel TVs come with a stand but you have to put that on top of something to raise it to the right height for viewing. A small sturdy flat top chest, if you have one, will work. Store bought stands get more costly as the weight of the TV increases – and that’s why I suggested the 42-in. If the purse allows it a larger set is good but only if you have the space to put it in and the seating isn’t too close to it. It’s better to have a comparative smaller TV than one that you can’t enjoy because you sit too close to it." - MichaelReadThis is sort of difficult to explain but my wife bought this bookcase thing that fills up one whole side of a wall in our living room and it has a cutout area and sort of TV stand area where the TV fits. It's huge and she has it jam packed full of CD's and books and knick knacks. Anyway I've measured the area where the TV fits and it's big enough for up to a 47" TV. The last time I went and looked at TV's I took a tape measure with me and I had written down the dimensions. I had worried about have a "Too Big" TV in our living room and your idea of a 42" TV might be just right? I might take you up on your suggestion about the 42" LG LCD TV. It actually sounds about right for our living room. I want a big TV but maybe anything bigger would be too much, ridiculous, and we'd be sitting too close? Maybe after it quits raining I'll go back and try again and see what's on Sale and how much it will cost me? I doubt I'll be buying any sound systems though. It's just not needed in our living room.
