I bought the Samsung 32" 457 recently from Richer Sounds, then returned it as the sound was appauling. I now own a Toshiba 32CV505 which I purchased from Empire Direct with the 5 Year guarantee, and not only is the sound far superior so is the picture ! :thumbsup:

heat added

very good price for a 32inch lcd from reputable brand

Should be listed as £319

I also bought the Tosh. Great sound and picture, I was impressed. Out of curiosity, does anyone know how the Empire 5 year guarantee works?

Because they are a mail order company, which has one store in Leeds. This should either be stated or the delivery cost added. You did neither. But don't worry, that's only my opinion.

Should say £319:thumbsup:

Not a great TV (motion blur is particularly noticeable) but a decent price. Changing channels is also v.slow. Personally, I'd spend a bit more money and go for something better.

Very few 32" are, so a poor reason to vote cold...

Great deal - decent brand below £300

And why on earth would you want 1080P on a 32" TV, unless you're watching it from 2 feet away?! :roll:

Train ticket?

Right, this is one of the few things that baffle me.

Is it worth getting a 1080p one? What diff does it make? I have an Xbox 360 and upsclaing dvd player, would it make any practical diff to have a 1080p one?

And what's the diff between full HD and HD ready? Don't want to spend on a TV to find that's it's not compatible with HD channels coming to Freeview etc.,

Merry Xmas btw :thumbsup:

FULL HD means it has the higher FULL HD resolution (1080 horizontal lines - 1920 x 1080 pixels for a widescreen TV)

HD Ready means it's lower res (720 lines, I think, or some are 768 (1366x768)) but it has the requisite HDMI connections, so it will be fully compatible with any HD equipment (HD freeview boxes, satellite, games consoles, Blu-Ray players).

Most people reckon FULL HD is not really necessary on 32" sizes and less, as you can't see the difference sitting as far as you need to with a 32", but by the same token, if you sit far enough from a 40" FULL HD TV, you won't be able to tell the difference between that and a top quality 40" non-FULL HD (not that those get made anymore nowadays anyway) !
If we're really honest, most people's living rooms aren't really big enough to use a 40" (or, to put it differently, the way most people have their living rooms set up space-wise, they sit too close to their TV for such a big size) - even a 36" would be too big for most, so I don't get this 40" + mania ! Manufacturer-driven perhaps ?
You really need to sit over 3 metres away from a 40" TV - how many of you can have your TV set up as far as that ?

In my view, 100Hz (100 Hertz scanning) is a much more desirable feature in a 32" (well, in fact in ANY size TV, of course), for a flicker-free, restful watch. Look out for that one.

From a techie site:
"The 1080p resolution (1920 x 1080) means that the TV can display every single pixel from a 1080i or 1080p source, so in theory it's a great feature to have if you've got a Blu-ray player, Xbox 360 or PS3. In theory - the reality in our opinion is that any real boost in detail is lost on a 32-inch screen, unless you happen to be sitting less than two feet from it; in all honesty 1080p doesn't really start to show the benefits over 720p until you get to 50-inch and bigger."

Most people reckon FULL HD is not really necessary on 32" sizes and less, as you can't see the difference, sitting as far as you need to with a 32", but by the same token, if you sit far enough from a 40" FULL HD TV, you won't be able to tall the difference between that and a good quality 40" non -Full HD !

Cool, a very clear explanation - thank you! Will go ahead with this now
