    anyone seen a review of this anywhere?

    Unbeatable are selling it for 1350, does it have an AV box?

    I really want the new sony 32 it looks like an LCD can finally give Plasma a fight

    I know and if it has AV Box too and the PQ, no serious blurring and the picture aint to far from the new Sonny DMX1 Wega it could be a real bargain

    Yea, it does. It seems a little too cheap, if you know what I mean. Not that I'm complaining, it just doesn't make sense when their 26" model costs around that.

    Any idea of when it's going to be in stock?

    I also noticed the ga5e series on unbeatable. I can't find anything about these sets anywhere else on the internet. Maybe it's a mistake?

    Oh, and unbeatable says that they are due in December.

    At the price they have at Unbeatable, I think it has to be some kind of mistake. Either that, or the screen sucks (which I doubt).

    If you read Home Cinema news the New Toshibas are nearly here too
    32"LW48 (with HDMI etc)
    30"L46
    27"L46

    I think the 30 and 27 models are simply this years early models with a different screen size but same features, may have component.

    The L48 however is totally HDTV ready.

    I seen the 30 for preorder somewhere for 1000 so the 32 should be less then the 1600 the older 32 went for

    for a start u would notice a difference I recon between the Daddy's which are the Philips 9986 (£2100) and the New Sony Wega 32 (£2500).

    however other company's have already dropped their prices like hitachi's 28 has gone from like 1700 - 1000, then u have the medion which a few 1000 people have bought.

    I think I will go with the tosh 32 aslong as its under 1600, I would love that sony though, the philips doesnt interest me

    So audiotech have the same price for the 4e and 5e, makes the unbeatable price seem even better!

    I was thinking of getting the LC-32GD1E because it has the media box, but now I'll get a 32GA5E or maybe even the 37" version. Eeeexcellent!

    The GD1E has got a digital tuner built in and is in a darker finish than the GA5E. I think they are the only differences!

    I'm also thinking about placing an order with unbeatable, but I'm not sure if I should get the 32" or the 37" version. The 32" does seem a bargain though.

    Cool, ok. For £1299, I think I might take the 32" Toshiba. I'd prefer the Sharp 32", but I'm not waiting until December.

    Cheers

    It's not definate that it has the av box, I've emailed Sharp to ask them about it.

    BTW, if it is like the 32GD1E, the 32GA5E will be 7.5cm deep (screen only).
