Here's my situation:I'll be using it for my bedroom, so normally I'd be sitting 5 - 7 feet away from the TV 90% of the time. I watch a lot of movies and play video games just as much.


Considering my situation, and money: which of the two would be a better pick?
Toshiba 32AV500U for $600 or Sharp LC32D44U for $700 ?




I'd post links but this forum has got some lame spamming "restriction". EDIT: I spammed enough to bypass this spamming restriction.

Not to sure what you are asking as they are both 720 TVs (well 768 and there are no 1080i LCD that I know of)


There both nice TVs I have a 32" Sharp (D62) and like it.

OK, now that I spammed to 3 posts I can finally post links.

This TV says its capable of displaying 1080i which is what I was considering of buying. The other TV I wanted to buy (the Toshiba) shows that its not capable of displaying 1080i.


Now the other person claims all 32 inch TVs are capable of displaying 1080i

yeah pretty much, there are some 32 inch panals that are 1080P but it's not worth the extra money since the difference in wasted on that screen size and you won't be able to tell the difference.


Out of your two choices go with the Toshiba, good solid set, save the $100 and use it on a new upconverting DVD player, the ext warranty, money towards a new sound system, bring your girl out to a nice dinner what ever you choose. The Sharp, though a nice set is not $100 better than the Toshiba.

It can't display 1080i it converts it to progressive and scales it to 720 (768 in this case)


I have never heard of a HDTV that could not accept 1080i including the Toshiba.

According to Toshiba's specs it can accept 1080i input. All HDTVs can.


Note that neither set can DISPLAY a 1080i signal, only ACCEPT them. Both of those sets will downres the signal to their native 1366x768 resolution.

+1 on what he said. All LCD displays are either 720P or 1080P (That I know of) all newer displays will accept 480I/P, 720P and 1080I/P and convert it to the TV's native resolution.


If your sticking with a 32" and not a gamer go with the 720P. I'd prefer you buy the 32A650 or 32A550 from Samsung....nice sets.
