I've been doing research for awhile, but I need help. I need an everything-TV that I will be using the heck out of in a limited space. Here's what I need/want:


1. 32"

2. 1080p

3. 120Hz

4. very low input lag

5. glossy

6. clear text for PC input

7. Good picture (obviously)


I don't care at all about speakers (I have a receiver already set up), aesthetic design, or mounting options. I'll be using this television for OTA broadcast, PC input/gaming, Xbox 360 gaming, DVD/Blu-Ray...pretty much anything you can use a television for. I'll be between four and eight or so feet from the television at all times. As far as budget--I don't have any hard line there. I'll save up if I need to. Suggestions sorely needed.

Well If you have to have 120hz then the only 32" LCD that's out there is the LG 32LG60, and as far as the rest of the specs that you want go well I don't know of any 32' LCD that has all of them.


Good Luck

Good Luck

Actually, the 32LG60 doesn't have 120Hz, there are a few sites that incorrectly list it in the specs. The LG site does not list it on any of their 32" LCDs. I even contacted them a few weeks ago and was told that the smallest LCD with 120HZ was 37".


Out of all the 32" models I looked at in the stores, I liked the image on the Samsung 32A650 best.

Those features are a waste of money for any panel under 50 inches.

Marketing departments love guys like you.

I don't really see how you can qualify that statement. PC monitors have much higher resolutions than televisions for a given size, so you can't argue the difference wouldn't be visible. I don't think too many people would argue that 120Hz processing doesn't do anything.


Not too sure what you're trying to say, really.

If you are going to be hooking a PC up to the set and using it as a PC monitor, then 1080P is definitely NOT a waste of money -- it would be a requirement, in my opinion.

I TOTALLY DISAGREE with your first statement.

Do some research and you may change your tune.


The human eye can not discern the difference between 1080p and 720p on smaller HDTV's from normal viewing distances. It's a fact that has been tested over and over.

Strange I've seen that 32LG60 previously on LG's website and under the specs 120hz was listed, but after looking today it seems to have disappeared.... Very Strange.


edit - I just looked on the Canadian LG site and if you look under the specs you will see truM 120hz


In any case 120hz is a "REFRESH RATE" only and not any type of motion enhancer. This feature basically makes an LCD look clearer, sharper and crisper while displaying details and unlike the motion aspect it can not be turned off, nor would you want to turn it off.


If you want the best of the best then the 3 I'd choose from would be


1 - Samsung 32A650

2 - Sony 32XBR6

3 - Panasonic 32LZ800

Non of those 3 offer 120hz.


The funny thing though is the LN32A650 is Samsung's Series 6 model which has the Touch of Color design, But only the 40" to 52" sizes feature 120hz while the 19", 22", and 32" sizes has the ToC design but not 120hz.

Well it looks like there aren't any 32" LCD's that offer 120hz unless the LG US website is incorrect and the Canadian one has it right.


Since it looks like he has space constraints then I listed what I feel to believe are the best 32" LCD's out there at this time, and I would doubt he is going to find an XBR4 at this point in time.

ANY panel? Like one used with a computer? Or with someone sitting closer? I know what you mean, but I don't think such unqualified statements are generally helpful...

LG has a new model just hitting retail, the 32LH40, that is exactly what I was looking for. 120hz, 32", 1080p. I'll be picking one up by next week (as soon as it get to the store I work at.) I'll report back.

Right, the pixels are just to small for us to notice any difference.

If you have waited this long then Sony will soon have there new 32XBR9 which will be much nicer than that LG your looking at.
