So, I am about to purchase a new 32" tv for my apartment. I will be using this tv to watch tv, blu-rays, play xbox360 and as a computer monitor.
I want to purchase a 1080p, 120hz unit (yes, I have heard that 1080p for a 32" is not necessary, but since I am using it as a computer monitor also, I would prefer it).
So I have been looking at the LG 32LH40-UA and the Sony KDL-32XBR9. I also have considered (slightly less considered) the Vizio SV320XVT. Each of these units meets my desires of 1080P/120hz. I looked at the LG and the Sony side-by-side in BestBuy and they appeared to be very similar in picture quality. I expected the Sony to look better, but they were almost the same. However, if anything, I was tending to think that the LG was looking better.
Would you recommend one over another? This TV will be in my second room, so it will not be hooked up a surround sound system, so sound is somewhat of an issue, however, not the biggest issue.
Bestbuy has recently placed both the Sony and the LG on sale at the price of 599.99 and the vizio is slightly less (just a few dollars).
Another possibility is the Samsung LN32B640, but it is $709. I love samsung tvs but do not wish to spend that much money if possible.
Any advice would be greatly appreciative.
Thank you everyone!
