9MX,

Samsung........ Sony is buying LCD panels from Samsung for their product line. Get the series 8 or 6 and get their 40 or 42. I am sure you can afford this. I got a 32 and now wishing I have a 42 instead.

Sony BRAVIA series (latest model) still has best clarity maybe because of their "engine". But they really cost so much higher than Samsung.

Hope this helps.

LG 32" plasma for home entertainment.


LCD's just can't match the black level of plasmas.

Choosing a firearm is a lot easier than choosing a tv.

Made the mistake of bringing along my teenage son when I shopped around for a 32-inch tv. Ended up with a 40-inch Samsung due to his artful manipulation. No regrets, though. Nothing beats a large screen.

i would still go for japan technologies when it comes to tv, sony is too expensive because of the name. toshiba and panasonic has competitive quality picture with sony and with a much cheaper price tag. i end up buying the toshiba 37", the size of your tv depends on the distance of your sitting position from the tv. having a bigger screen with a short viewing distance, the downside is you can see the pixelization and not the crisp and clarity of the picture. samsung is only great with their marketing and its physical appearance as to compare it with japan tech. just IMHO...

It is said that plasmas have better clarity and black is real black unlike an LCD. However we are happy with our 42 LCD sharp. I dont see the difference if you have got high definition tv input.

no hidef signal yet for TV in the phil, hehe, so maximize performance of PLASMA/LCD with high quality DVDs not the pirated kinds esp yung mga 4 in 1s, etc. :)

Pioneer's Kuro plasma tv's have a very good review...

plasma tv's are good on sizes 42" and up, and best viewed in a dim-lighted palce. between palsma and lcd is a personal preference.

9mx,

Can you tell us more about your considerations for choosing tv?

Will you just be watching cable/local channels? DVD? Bluray? Hidef downloads? Use it as pc monitor?

What's your viewing distance? You watch alone? With entire family? Big group?

Is your room dim? Brightly lit? Lots of windows with sunlight coming in?

Are you a casual viewer? Or you like to see maximum details in movies? Very deep blacks?

What about audio? TV speakers good enough? Or you will listen thru amplifiers/external speakers?

Range of your budget?

9mx,

Can you tell us more about your considerations for choosing tv?

Will you just be watching cable/local channels? DVD? Bluray? Hidef downloads? Use it as pc monitor? - Just for DVD and Hidef downloads

What's your viewing distance? You watch alone? With entire family? Big group? -about 2-4 meters

Is your room dim? Brightly lit? Lots of windows with sunlight coming in? - brightly lit

Are you a casual viewer? Or you like to see maximum details in movies? Very deep blacks? - i like details, i hate pixels

What about audio? TV speakers good enough? Or you will listen thru amplifiers/external speakers? - i'd definitely have a basic home theatre set up

Range of your budget? - just within the range of samsung/toshiba 32 inch lcds

my initial bias was with samsung. imho, sony isn't heavily into lcd tv like samsung whose mobile phone lcds really impressed me.

Ok, try checking out 32inch LCDs from the major brands.

720p native resolution would be fine for your usage. These sets are called HD ready, meaning they can accept 720p & 1080p inputs and output 720p reso. Using hdmi to hdmi or dvi to hdmi cables would simplify connections from your sources (pc & dvd player) to the tv.

Matte screen if you cant stand seeing reflections on dark scenes. Glossy screen if you prefer deeper blacks & dont mind reflections.

Best if you could bring your sources to test them on the tv you plan to get just to make sure no problems & see the actual output of the tv.

Note that tv's are factory preset at very high contrast & brightness. Looks impressive in showrooms but not the best setting in your home environment. Some shops offer calibration service at your home after a prescribed break-in period.

Agree, the settings are made to showroom specs, making them really bright. When you get home, its different because you dont have the same lighting effect that is on the showroom

i agree, suggestion is go to store that they can compare side by side, the quality of pics with same set-up of configs, then decide. if you're not that particular to the picture quality then go for the cheaper lcd tv.
