Im stumped and confused, im between 2 models right now.

LG 32LG30 for $699

Toshiba 32AV500 for $599



Anyone used any of the above and could hand me some input?

Im leaning more towards the Toshiba for the price and features...

Rev, is this for living room or bedroom?

if living room then go bigger. if u running low then wait a bit till u get more $$$ and get a bigger one.

When it comes to model. personally i wudnt buy anything but Samsung. even sony takes their screens. just IMO.

My little brother has the 32" vizio and we got it for $525 at Sam's. I personally would probably go with a LG as I have always had good luck with there products. Although the 62" panasonic my dad has is awesome

That's ridiculous its pretty much a failed input what could you possibly need to hook up to an S video input?

my little bro got his 32" vizio for christmas and its going great.

My rents had one of the original vizios ( 42" ) and after about 3 years the lcd controller went out and couldnt be fixed

Ive been thinking about a 42" for my room and if i did it would be a samsung or a panasonic

Well then just live with 480i for now

Its not worth getting a TV that isnt as good for something you will upgrade later on. Its not that much for a DVD player with progressive scan and that is better then S video. S video should not affect ur decision at all

So, I should buy something nice? even though ima be upgrading everything else real soon?

Vizio VO32L. I bought one of these not too long ago, and love it. I was told by several people on here that Vizio is a good budget company, which lead me to buying the one I have now. I have a PS3 with an HD connection, and an original Xbox with HD, and they both look amazing.

Connetions :

RF (F Connector for internal tuner): 1
HDMI with HDCP: 3
Analog Stereo Audio for HDMI Inputs: 1
Component YPbPr plus Stereo Audio: 2
Composite Video: 2
S-Video plus Stereo Audio: 1
Computer RGB plus Stereo Audio: 1
Service Port: 1

EDIT : $499 shipped.

If you plan on getting blu ray then there is no point in getting a tv that doesnt support 1080p.

Whatever you get make sure its 1080p.

For a 32 inch TV you will not notice a huge difference between 720p and 1080p
