    Can anyone list the 32" sets on the market that DO NOT have cooling fans?

    Specifically, the JVC, Hitachi and Panasonic 32" sets. I hate the fans on my 32" Sharp GA3, the are by far the worst thing about the set.

    Seeing as though Apple can make a 30" LCD with the tiniest bezel possible without any colling fans or vents whatsoever, I don't see why Sony, Sharp etc etc cannot!

    I just placed an order for the new Sony V32 thinking that fans were a thing of the past, but apparently this has them too!

    Apple is walking on water these days but they do not make their LCDs, i bet this is an OEM arrangement. I wonder if anybody here knows who makes it for them?

    LG 32LP1D : no fans, no noise, no buzzing.

    Similarily - although I don't own one, the LG 32LR2X is also fan and buzz free..

    I'd really consider one of the LG sets if they weren't so wide

    It's just over 1m wide. I would have prefered detachable speakers, since I don't use them anyway.

    If your screen is no longer under warranty, replace the sharp fans with ultra quiet ones. (http://www.dorothybradbury.co.uk/)
    I wouldn't expect it to be very hard a job.

    At the time I did look into replacing the fans, but they don't have the standard small 3pin connector that 99% of PC fans have.

    Not that I would recommend buying one, but for the record the TEVION 32" LCD does not have a cooling fan, or buzzing.
