Sony KDL32V4000 or Samsung LE32A456C?


Standard Member
If you're reading this, good on ya.

This is my first thread, and I'm hoping I can get some valuable advice.

I'm looking for a 32" TV for my fairly big room, to be used mainly with a PS3 via HDMI and built-in freeview. After quite a lot of looking about, I was on the verge of ordering the Samsung LE32A456C from Dixons for £365ish, but then when having a quick look at some other TVs on the Dixons site I saw the Sony KDL32V4000 for £375ish, which looks like an incredible bargain.

The only difference I can really see apart from brand-specific features is the Sony's dynamic contrast of 30 000:1 compared to the Samsung's 10 000:1. I was just wondering if anybody could give me some advice about the two TVs in relation to my intended uses.

I know how good Bravias are, especially in terms of colour, as we have a KDL40W2000 in the living room. I've never really had much to do with a Samsung, but having looked at it in store it looked perfectly good.

I'm not really looking to spend much more that about £400 and I'm not too fussed about 1080p as it's only for my room and 1080p is barely noticeable on a 32" (from what I've heard).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
