I'm going to replace the old TV in my motor home with a new HD LCD. The largest I can install is about 32". I don't see many with 1080 resolution. With a display this size, is there really much difference in viewable picture quality between a 720 and 1080 unit? I don't do gaming, just HD broadcast TV and standard definition DVD.

For you, I would say no.


Unless of course you are sitting 4-5ft away from it, then you could tell the difference, but even then 1080p at 32in is quite a premium and probably not worth it.

i would only go with 1080p if i were using it as a computer monitor


two models to look at are:


the sony 32s3000

and the samsung 3253


good luck!

At what size does 1080p become noticeable ?

depends on how far you sit from your set, type in viewing distance calculator on google................

I had to make this decision a short while ago.


The truth is, unless you are sitting very close (as one would with a computer monitor), the difference in resolution at 32" is negligable.


You would be better off buying a tier 1 (Sony/Sharp/Samsung) model with good contrast and color definition.


I was between the Sammy 3253 and the Sony 32S3000. I ended up with the Sony and have been very happy.


Happy hunting!

If you're sitting 4-6 feet away, you will be able to resolve the extra detail of 1080p and you should consider a 1080p set (e.g., Sharp's).


If you're sitting more than 6 feet away (not advisable for a set that small), you won't be able to resolve more than 720p so there's no point in buying 1080p.

I agree. I have both and I can tell a difference.. I'm sure a lot of the general public cannot. Only way is for your own eyes to tell you. Had a few people over and a friend said you cannot tell the difference. Well......... got the 32 xbr out of the bedroom and put it side by side w/the 52 xbr. All but one were in agreement. Both tvs were fed the same signal along w/motion control and cinema motion activated.
