15-17" would be ok, 32 is well :coma:, you won't need that size till you move into a house, 26" would be pretty good, down side to big TV's, is the size of your room, worried about it being nicked, or broken, you can also get a cable and link your tv up to your laptop, i took my ps3 to halls, in the 2nd term, 2 of the others had 360's, i also have a 17" HD tv, but cos now in a house, we have a 32" in the living room and the ps3 and 360 are on that

its a good way to spend hours playing and getting to know people, and to spend them sundays

If it's for watching tv on I wouldn't bother, my hall room didn't have a tv plug, and you're not going to be sitting in your room on your own watching tv anyway in my experience. You'd also need a license.

For playing games it seems a little big, hall rooms are generally pretty small. I just used a 16inch one for xbox it was fine.

Ive had my TV in my room for like 3 years and not once watched tv. I hook my computer up to it and use it as a monitor, and for my dvd player and xbox 360.

My current 1 is 32" but ill be buying a 26" after results (if I can afford it lol) for my uni room, and Ill also take my xbox 360.

Ergh I have a 32" 1080p telly too, but size is an issue but also theft lol? If my telly and PS3 got nicked I would be like 800 outta pocket :/. I probably won't in the end. I'l miss not watching telly though, since no way I'm buying a license

well, the one thing i am taking for certain is my ps3 (: and then maybe my wii. i can imagine it being good for getting people talking?

my tv is only 16" as my large one broke a few weeks back, but i don't really watch tv or films so it'll suffice.

^^ This is why buying a second-hand TV is best!

Wasting 800 quid on something that will barely fit in your room or that someone might steal? In my honest opinion, ridiculous!

Me, I ill be taking a 1980-ish 17-inch Ferguson TV.

The only snag with the older TVs of course, is that they look like the box they come in!

22" would be adequate, but it depends really on what you get in your room. If you have a small desk then 32" is WAAY to big. Try and find pictures of the hall rooms you might move into then decide.

Also, taking a console is a good idea, you have no idea now fast PES or Fifa sessions will endear you to your flatmates.

Oh and don't forget the room insurance!

I'm taking a 19inch tv as at home I like to watch DVDs and a bit of tv when I have a spare hour or so. Wouldnt take one any bigger than that though. Do people think that is a good size I will have my laptop as well but thats all on the desk.
