G'Day Fellas,

I think this has been discussed before but i could not find the thread.

Just looking for some opinions on the Samsung LA32A650 and the Panasonic TX-32LZD800A

They will be used for TV, Movies and games and general computer stuff.

I have had a look around at local retailers none had the 32" versions on show but they had the 42"+ versions. I noticed a few things:

1. The Panasonic had good picture quality on both SD and HD video
2. The Samsung had terrible looking SD compared to all other TV’s in the shops
3. The Samsung had far better blacks than any other TV
4. Some of the colours looked un-natural on the Samsung

And opinions and suggestions would be great.

Do not assume that a given HDTV will share the same advatanges/disavantages of its larger brother. For example. a smaller model can feature a TN panel while the larger one uses a PVA. The difference can be day and night. It should also be noted that more R&D is put into the larger models.

AVSForum is the best forum for HDTV related questions.
