32" HDTV, 800-1000 dollar budget!! which one?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
hey guys im looking for a TV to go in my small bedroom. It will be used for my Xbox 360 and High def direcTV viewing! im not quite sure which TV to go with to get the most out of my money. I did some research and am currently thinking about going with a Sharp Aquos 32".. the LC-32D41U model in particular.. what do you guys think about it? can better be had for the money? i would really like the sony CRT (KD-34XBR970) that everyone gives rave reviews about, but 190 pounds is insanely heavy! do you guys have any other suggestions for what TV to get with my budget? if im not mistaken, 1080p is way out of my budget but 1080i isnt.. so i guess 1080i is a must? besides, i wouldnt be able to take advantage of 1080p viewing with such a small TV right? any input will be greatly appreciated! thanks

I see you've narrowed your search... good news indeed. Sharp LCDs were the #1 LCDs a while ago (2 years ago?) but as I understand it they now have their pannels built by some 3rd party, which are of lesser quality.

The Westy suggested above (1080p) is a favorite amongst many people...

Just for your information, there is no TV that does 1080i naitively per se. A 1080p TV will be able to resolve the entire resolution of a 1080i signal, but when you see a TV that says "1080i compatible" it basically means that the signal will be scaled to the naitive resoulution of that paticular set. This does not necessairly apply to a conventional CRT, but does for all LCDs

If you're looking at LCDs = or less than 32", it's pretty safe to say that most are of 1366x768 resolution. I'm partial to either Sony or Samsung, though as I mentionned in our conversations previously, they both share similar pannels, only the electronics inside them vary.

Sorry to hear I couldn't convince you to go the PJ way, unless of course you had concerns about the pricing.

P.S. Just for the sake of it, here is an LCD suggestion:

I can't recommend one, but all I can say is with something so subjective and visible, go around to shops and see them for yourself. You can buy from a Best Buy or something, but look at the TV's at high end shops. That way they'll be fed with high-end signals (not a cable splitter for like 10 sets at the big-box places) and you'll get to truly see what these TV's look like. I've seen many TV's for $2000 or less that I preferred GREATLY to some other $6000 units. Were they better? Who knows, I just liked the way the picture looked better.

I guess what I'm saying is go and personally find something you'll be happy looking at for the next n years.
