    Hi,
    newbie to AV forums but spent over 16 hrs already reading all the reviews.after reading about 50 reviews on all the 32" LCD tv's on the market i've cut it down to 1 of 3 within the lower price end of the market.

    only thing is im a total newbie on features so can someone please tell me the difference between the hyundai "Q321" and the "A321" and which is the better , the hyundai or the mirai 32".
    i know the pair have been reviewed but i will go with the most votes offered on the subject.my normal CRT tv is on the blink so i leave myself in the capable hands of people on here who know their stuff,
    thanks all,.

    P.S.:-the only thing i can say is my two sons are getting a PS3 for xmas between them so thats the only true compatibility item i need to go with the tv.

    A321 doesnt have IDTV , where as the Q321 has. Dependant on what set you get, the latest A321 comes with HDMI not DVi. I own a A321 and its lovely , and i hate intergrated freeview sets, i`d rather choose what box to plug in, personal pref really. Mirai isnt as good as the Hyundai sets.

    I'm in the same boat as you. I'm pretty much leaning towards the A321 as
    I've read it has a better panel and hdmi.

    which is the better of the 2 hyundai's and what price are we talking for a hyundai 32" .one thing i aint good at is finding the cheapest.i always buy then someone says :- i found it here for £40 cheaper.so any links to the cheapest would be handy.
    thanks for the replies guys , i feel the pain is nearing its end.

    Probably the best place to buy either the Q321/A321 is from here . Also you get the best CS, IMHO.

    I have the Q321 because I want to use it with my PC. Others will opt for the A321 for different reasons, but at the end of the day which ever one you choose, you won't be dissapointed. These sets arn't perfect, but then what do you expect for the money. Just have a look through some of their respective threads for more feedback.

    Ignore the 320 models, 321 is gonna better and easier to find.

    A= No Integrated Freeview, but has HDMI
    Q= Freeview tuner, but no HDMI (has DVI instead)

    The A321 is the best bang for buck this side of the planet. I tested loads, and it won out of the £600-£800 bracket. When you do decide , remember that setting up the screens display is oh so important , ie contrast levels etc etc. Looking in Currys & Comet is a joke and the blank look on the advisors face when you ask a simple question is highly asuming if un-informative

    They say the latest A321 has the better samsung screen, imho get the A321, sync issues with idtv on the q321 ive heard and some issues with shy hd. A321 does all fine.

    A321 - 1200:1 Contrast Ratio, HDMI Port, Analogue Tuner

    Q321 - 1000:1 Contrast Ratio, DVI port, DVB-T and Analogue Tuner

    Q320 - As Q321 but with built in 14-3 Multimedia Player (plays movied from your memory card, or browse your digital photos from the same thing)

    No such product as an A320.

    And Ive seen both the Q and A sitting side by side and trust me, I couldnt notice ANY difference - the feed was the European HD Test broadcast so the image was crystal on both sets.

    **Oh and we only use Samsung Panels in a LCD TV's as we are one of 3 official Samsung Manufacturing Partners**
