Looking for a friend.


What's the best 1080p sub 40" (32 or 37 inches) LCD without needing 120 Hz? Good price is obviously a plus.


Most 32 or 37 seem to be 720P?


Thanks,

UL

32" Sony KDL-32VL140

37" Sony KDL-37XBR6


and most of the Sharp models is what I recommend.

You can find plenty of 720 and 1080p LCDs at 32" and 37". Stick with Samsung, Sony or Panasonic.

Totally agree with BillP. Stick with those three and you can't go wrong. I especially like the Sony XBR6 in the 32" & 37" size, the Samsung A550 in those sizes, and the Panasonic LZ800. All are 1080p TVs with very good picture quality and reliability.

It's hard to argue with that logic. I read somewhere that Panasonic is trying hard to sell all of their current LCD inventory to get ready for the new 2009 models. That's the reason for the drastic price decrease.

That, and the economy.

Yeah, that's the best buy at the moment - I believe the LZ800 has motion smoothing while the 85s don't right? Motion smoothing is a must on an LCD, imo. I'd never buy one without it, you'll get headaches from the blur.

THANKS everyone. GREAT GREAT forum!


Anyways, checked out the LZ800 at Amazon - the 37". Just realized at that price, I can pick up much larger screens including the Vizio XVT 42" with 120HZ. Wondering if the LZ800 is that much better than the larger screen?


anyways, need 1080P because his primary use will be for computer monitor and occasionally for video.


Thanks,

UL

The LZ800 is an IPS Alpha panel unlike the other brand. The viewing angle is very extreme. In big, it's bright on all angle.


You come in the room & even at nearly 90 degree off the panel you see it like it is at front.



Creepy isn't it?

That's a nice wallpaper. Can you share it?

Cool! Are all in that series IPS panel?


When I see advertised 176 or 178 degrees on these LCDs, I assumed all these LCD TVs are IPS panels. This is apparently not true? (i.e. Aren't Samsung 650 series IPS?)


Thanks,

UL

Thank you. Like you, I've noticed when people on this forum ask for information on a specific size TV, someone invariably tries to steer them to a larger size. When I ask for data on a 32 inch TV, I don't want someone saying, "Oh, you should at least get a 40 inch."

If money isn't a factor than as the others have said the Panasonic 1080P LZ 800 IMHO is by far the best, if you are looking at between a Samsung name, Sony name then go with the Panny, It is just a fantastic looking set.


Now if paying that much for a 32 inch set seems a bit steep and looking for something a little less expensive, I would throw the Vizio VO32F 1080P in the mix. Fantastic prices on this set, solid performer , just a great price to picture quality TV. You'd be happy.


But again if you are looking for THE best, then yes as others have said go with the Panasonic LZ 800 series.
