Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I was thinking of going with panasonics new 32" but it looks as if it has no ATSC tuner built it.


Thanks

What's your budget? I'm asking the same question in my topic, but am unsure whether it's better for me to get a 32" 4:3 or a 30" 16:9

not really sure to tell you the truth. I guess I just wanted to get an idea of what people like right now. Also, I only want the 4:3 ratio to fill an entertainment center.

Since you want the ATSC tuner the new 32" Sony XS945 would be a nice choice.


The letterboxed 16:9 area of a 32" screen is about equal to a 29" size so you're only losing an inch when watching HD, but get a LOT more screen area when watching regular TV.

Hi,

I have been searching for a 32" HDTV tv, and found one that I really liked, but couldn't find any Walmart that carried it. I settled for the Philips 30" WS 30PW9110D. About a week later, I was in my local Walmart, and happened to see the original Panasonic I was looking for sitting on a cart. I asked about it, and it turns out that the unit was a layaway never picked up. I asked the price, and when it was scanned, it came up as $398. I did a double take, since this unit is on their website at $690 clearance. I picked one up that night, and am returning the Philips that I wasn't 100% satisfied with anyway. It doesn't have a built in tuner, but at $398, an HDTV ready 32" can't be beat. It seems that it is a discontinued mode on clearance, but some stores still have stock. It's a great set, and has plenty of inputs for the future, as well as being HDTV ready. Good Luck finding one, I just thought this might be some helpful information. The model number is CT-32HC14. Thanks again for all the responses to my previous posts.


Thanks,

Don

That really is a good price. Maybe I could find one a with the extra money and purchase an ATSC tuner as well.

I'm in this same boat with w 4:3 32" TV and am having a tough time finding models. I should say finding models with an integrated tuner. Here are the options I've seen:



Sanyo HT32744 from Walmart

Phillips 32PT9100D/3 at BestBuy

Samsung txp3271H f at my local Best Buy, but not on the website



That is really it from my research. Are there other 32" 4:3 HDTVs with an integrated tuner for about $700-800?

On that note, should I be looking at 32" sets without the ATSC tuner if I plan to use it? How much can one get it externally?


I really don't like the limited selection of the 32" sets with tuners at the various B&M places around here. If I had to pick today I'm going with the HT32744 but it's an old model and the problems with the component imputs do scare me...

There can be a Toshiba 32" 4:3 HDTV available, but Orion does not know how to produce 32" 4:3 HDTV, so Toshiba is not offering any.
