Cannot make a decisionon which HD TV to get??

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I was planning on getting a 32" Tv for my room and their were a few great brands on sale for Black Friday. I wanted to get the toshiba for $180, but when I went to Best Buy they said they sold out. Now I am in the store trying to make a decision on what 32" tv to get and which one's are still available. Someone told me to get a Dynex 32" tv, but after I reaserched it online and I found out that Dynex tvs are just horrible, so I will not be getting that one. The only good 32" tv that was still in stock was a Samsung 32" LED, so I checked the price and it was $249, and $279 it total, so I eneded up buying that one, now when I got home I didn't relize that it was a LED version, I had thought it was a LCD, so I am going to return it today.

Another issue I had with that tv is that it's way to expensive, I was hoping to spend around $189 on black Friday, so I don't know what tv to get, I may just get a LCD the same samsung tv that I got if they have a LCD form.

Here's the TV

What? You're going to return it because its led?

Let me explain something. When TVs are referred to as "LED", they are just talking about how it's lit. LED TVs are LCD, just the backlight is led instead of the older CCFL tubes.

Your tv is a LCD.

I am going to return it because it coasts to much, and I wanted a little lower price. I need a 32" tv and I know this is a great brand, but I don't know if there are any other 32" tvs for sale?

Does LCD mean that the image quality is better than LED?

That Samsung LCD LED is good for the price.

Also why did you return it?

LED is LCD. LED is the backlight technology.

You have either two choices:

LCD with LED backlighting or LCD with CCFL backlighting.

Always get the LCD LED.

I didn't return it yet, but I am thinking about returning it. I wanted to buy a 32" tv that was $179 but the tohshiba sold out

Why are you returning it? LED and LCD is the same damn thing.

If it's LED, I can guarantee you it is an LCD panel with LED backlighting.

I am not sure if its a good tv, I know Samsung is a really great brand, but its too much money. I don't even know if it was really worth it.

If you go lower than $200 it will be crap quality. The Toshiba is crap, trust me.

It's a TV, expect to spend over $200 in most cases.

If you don't have that money, you shouldn't be buying a TV.

I guess your right, so is this Samsung tv a great tv or not so great?
