32 inch tv on £500 budget


Novice Member
I am looking for a tv around 32". Maybe could go up to 37". It will mainly be used for gaming and movies so i want a fast response time. I previously had the 3D LG LW450u but the input lag was ridiculous.

So can anyone reccomend a good gaming tv? Most sites i go on to look at reviews never list the response time so does anyone know a site that does this?

Panasonic 32E30

Or the 3D 32DT30

Both low lag by all accounts



Gaming Performance

Speaking of game performance and the TX-L37DT30B positively excelled in this area. Bringing up my trusty Everybody's Golf power bar to get an initial feel for input lag revealed the DT30B to be a very responsive display indeed - I literally could not detect even the merest hint of latency between controller input to on-screen response and it felt very satisfying.

The DT30B was so reponsive, in fact, it's causing me to revisit my input lag testing methodologies. What I can tell you is that the lag is under one frame at 60fps, i.e. less than 16ms and probably closer to 10ms. I will update this review with an actual averaged figure but the reality is, all but the absolute hardcore tournament gamer will be very well catered for in the DT30B and it comes very highly recommended in this area.

thanks for the reply.

I am liking the looks of TX-L32DT30B. But it seems to be hard to get hold of. Richer sounds dont have it in stock near me and the only place i can find other than the electricshop which you posted is comet but its £550 there.

Is electricshop a trustworthy place to order from? or should i just pay the extra £10-20 and get it from comet?
