    A bit early for that I'm afraid. When the full HD 32"s are released they will be £1k+

    I doubt that very much as you can buy a 37" Sharp 1080p set for around £900.

    32" 1080p sets are available in Japan, so its only a matter of time before we get them.

    what's the benefit of 1080p on 32"
    can't barely noticeable from 720p.

    unless for PC monitor used for high precision multi-window computer aided design software.

    or 2 feet away tv watching distance.

    want to bet? :D

    I think Hitachi are releasing a new range of Full HD LCD TV's in June. According to What Plasma magazine, the 37" is expected to retail at around £700 which is an absolute bargain.

    James, a lot of people here would rightly point out that at 32", do you really need a 1080p TV?

    If they do come out they will command a price premium, the 32" Sharp models below are $2499 for the 1080p or just $899 for the 768p version.

    The prices may well drop if 1) there is sufficient demand, or 2) the container ships full of budget 32" 768p screens from China, could force Japanese makers to go for 1080p as a feature differentiator, we will have to wait.

    thanks all for responses...they save alot of time looking!

    So its back to the 768 versions given i need a telly asap or wife will take me out (not to dinner)

    and they're cheaper...

    Is there a consensus on which one both performs and look mint for under £750 (for 32")

    thanks heaps

    The "consensus" is that the best 32" TVs for that budget are the Toshiba ones - and with recent price drops in the past 6-8 weeks, you can get the top model for that now, the 32WLT68.

    If you price match Empire Direct with John Lewis you can get the set for £715 with a 5-year guarantee. I paid £820 for the same set just 2 months ago.

    1080p + 32 inch = Waste of money.

    You will not notice the detail on that size of a screen, thus why manufacturers haven't really pushed such screens. (Although they can be found in Japan and US I believe)

    I'd vote for the Panny LXD70 (but then I would, as its what I've bought!)
    £722 with pricematch from JL Solihull.
