Hey im looking for a new tv for my dorm room.. There are two models that im currently choosing between these two models. Problem is I dont know if a 40" would be too big for my single dorm room and the 32" version seems to have more features at a cheaper price..Can anyone help me decide

LG 32" LM6200 $650
-3D(6 pairs of glasses)
-120hz
-internet and built in apps

or

LG 40" LS5700
-built in apps and web
-1080p
-120hz

For the passive 3d, I'd recommend the 32LM6200. They're both good tvs. For the money, I think the 3d version is a lot of fun.

Can't believe it was over 5 years ago already but my sophomore year of college I bought my first flatscreen for my single dorm as well (I learned the hard way that you don't want to be paired with a random roommate your freshman year).

While you possibly can get away with 40", it will be FAR easier to go with 32" in terms of fitting everything in that tiny space. I know it would have been extremely difficult for me to fit a 40" TV in my dorm...and that doesn't even factor in how I was always bringing it home from school during winter and summer breaks (winter and summer at OU were 6 and 11 weeks, respectively).

IMO do yourself a favor and go the Vizio route (more affordable but still performs well) then save your dough for a larger TV when you move into a larger living area.

On a sidenote, I miss college.

The new 90" Sharp sounds like a great college dorm party panel. eek.gif

A few quick thoughts: A 40" TV isn't as big as you'd think. A 32" is surprisingly small. And... there usually isn't much of a price difference between the two. Confirm the dimensions and go for the 40"
