    I would like to give an overview on current most popular 32" LCDs, based on what I read throughout the forum...

    If you want to add or comment something (a pro or a con) please send a private message, and don't reply cause I would like the topic to become a reference and therefor should be clutterfree! :lease:

    Thank you.

    Daxie

    *EDIT: please ignore the first (useless) reply from hamd01 since he totally missed the point of this thread.

    In other words your too lazy to decide for yourself and you want other people to send their opinions directly to you. Why dont you just read the forums, all the information is a mouse click away!

    All sets are mentioned one or more times "superb picture quality" so I will not mention any possible differences in that area.


    1) Hitachi 32LD7200

    Pros:
    All possible inputs: DVI/HDMI/VGA/Component/Scart/...
    Detachable speakers
    Motorized Swivel
    1:1 (1360x768) Pixel Mapping Possible (see cons)

    Cons:
    PC Pixel Mapping through dvi can be difficult to set-up
    Slight backlight buzz on certain sets, not on all

    2) Toshiba 32WL56
    Pros:
    1:1 Pixel Mapping through HDMI/VGA

    Cons:
    No DVI
    No real component (component only through seperate VGA adapter)

    3) JVC 32S60
    Pros:
    slightly lower response time in comparison to competition

    Cons:
    Only 1280x1024 PC resolution (NO 1:1)
    No DVI

    4) Panasonic TX32LXD500
    Pros:
    1:1 Pixel Mapping through HDMI

    Cons:
    no DVI
    no backlight adjustment

    5) Samsung LE32R(41)51B(X)

    What refresh rates are 1:1 pixel mapping allowed - 50 and 60Hz or just 60Hz? And are you assuming that 1:1 pixel mapping is at native resolution or something else? In my book, they are two seperate things. Some displays allow 1:1 pixel mapping but not at native resolution so leave borders. IMO, your 1:1 pixel mapping comments are meaningless and misleading without this information.

    You will also find this thread that offers similar information but is more comprehensive although it too does not distinguish native resolution input at 50 or 60Hz or 1:1 pixel mapping at native or bordered.
