Question Best 32" TV?

Hello, been in a market for a high resolution 32" TV with 120Hz response. I can't seem to find that. Samsung made one about 5 years ago but nothing since.

Recent check of rtings.com, had a review of the new Samsung QN32Q50RAFXZA, which gets a pretty decent review. Problem is that there are motion artifacts, probably due to 60Hz.

Anyone found a better 32" on the market?

Best 32" TV?

I’ve been considering this TV for my kitchen. I’d love to see some user reviews of this display. I’m not sure if there are any other 4K 32” TV to compare it to though.

Thats my problem also. Not many manufacturers make 32s anymore. I think the smallest Sony has in their lineup is 43".

bummer.

I’m not super impressed with the price on this TV But given I’d be using this off my zone 2 from my AVR I want to try to keep my output resolution the same for all my displays so I may just have to bite the bullet on this one. Hopefully the price will come down on this TV by the time I’m ready to purchase.
I still have to do wiring before I worry about the TV.

For what it's worth, this is the only forum that I have found for the 32" Samsung.

Though I will have no use for its 4k HDR capabilities, I ordered this TV for my secondary monitor, if I go lower rez the HT processor HDMI handshake will also downrez the output to my 4k PJ on the other HDMI output.

I am excited as in addition to title display during my SACD, DVD-A, and BD-Audio auditioning I will be able to listen to Spotify and Amazon Music within seconds via ARC.

Does this TV share its remote with other Samsung TVs? Cannot find a Harmony 659 standard Windows interface code to load.

32" TVs belong in the discount corners these days stuck at 720p with a few at 1080p. If you must get a 32" a 32" PC monitor would be the closet thing you will get to 4k.

Just make sure any 4K monitor you get is HDCP Compliant on it's HDMI Input.

But how good would the black levels be on a monitor?

Normally higher end professional PC monitors should be more color accurate than any TV panels and their price tag is also higher as well for such a small panel.

Main problem with this TV is the 60Hz refresh rate. Going to have motion artifacts. Samsung made a 1080p 120Hz few years ago (5 years maybe?) but haven't seen a smaller TV with 120 since.

I have had the QN32Q50RAFXZA on for a few days by the side wall on a ceiling pole tilted mount and love listening to Amazon Music and Spotify while working out.

I have it on my processor's ARC HDMI (PJ on secondary) and for a while the CEC from my Apple TV messed with it, now with CEC off I get great control with my Harmony remote.

PQ is decent when viewing SACD, BD-A, DVD-Audio ID3 info, I lowered gamma by 2 to get that sedate ambiance needed for the Universal Japan SACD audition with a glass of Carnivor cab in hand at the end of a stressful day.

I am amazed by the variety of channels without even a cable connection, BTW I have no use for this in my system. Also how is has the hardware to handle all the features of my living room 82" Q90R and 55" LG C9 upstairs.

Although pricey due to its niche nature, this is definitely a great secondary monitor, the IR control gives it a huge advantage in the projector based AV ecosystem, or for the TV-raised dependent on kitchen and bathroom sets
