I'll only be doing Xbox 360, hooking it up to my MBP, and Cable TV, with a 32 or 37" TV. I definitely won't be needing 1080p with that type of size. So what would be a good model for a good price? I know Samsung and Sony are both good, but has anyone had any experience with 720p models?

I think at that size and price range, the Sony will be hard to beat. But I will also look at the similarly sized and priced Samsung and LG LCDs for one reason, they appear to have swivel stands whereas the Sony appears to have a fixed base.


If you're buying from Best Buy, just get one. If you change your mind before 30 days, you are free to return or exchange without penalty.


Go enjoy your shopping experience.

How is this Sony LCD? Looks like it's a year old, which isn't that bad, but I wouldn't mind looking into better models as I don't know which models are supposed to be newer or better.

The Sony came out earlier this year and it is a pretty good unit for the price. However, I would recommend the LG 32LH20 (cheaper, but better) over the Sony. I picked one up over the weekend and, IMO, the picture is much more vibrant and the blacks are deeper on the LG. Im currently using it as a monitor for my PC and 360. The thing I love about the LG the most is that I am able to label the HDMI port that I use for the 360 as a "PC" (virtually lag free) while having the PC hooked up by VGA. The only two downsides for me, no 3.5mm audio output and the highest resolution supported via VGA is 1280x720. Other than that, I am very pleased with the LG.

Thanks for mentioning that, I might actually end up buying that LG now! I just need to compare them in the store, but comparing them side by side in the store isn't always reliable since they turn the brightness to max and I need to see what SD signals will look like as well. The 32LF11 has 1080p and runs for $530, the 32LH20 with 720p goes for $450, and the 37LH20 with 720p goes for $700. I'll have to debate spending the extra $250 for 5". Now with 1080p, I know I don't need it, but if I tell my Xbox 360 to run 1080p on a 720p, even though there aren't many games that play 1080p on the Xbox 360, does the TV get hindered even a little bit by downgrading? It's $70 extra for 1080p, not as big as some other companies, so I might just decide it all based on what I see in store. I just have this intuition that I should futureproof my TV because it'll last me practically for 8 years of under-grad and graduate school, but I'll probably just end up getting the 720p.

720p means how many vertical resolution lines are in TV.720 deliver 1280×720 pixels of resolution. Letter P tells about progressive scan or non- interlaced.
