    Hello, still looking for the best 32" HDTV. I would like this to support 1080i and have hdmi etc. I will be using for my xbox 360 and Sky through a coxial (splits off into different rooms). I also need to know what the best indoor Freeview/Digital aerial is.

    My budget is around £800

    Thanks

    Try the samsungs they are used to show off the xbox360 in stores and to me look very good and also get rave reviews in the mags.They have all the connections you could want on a 32"lcd and if you get on Ebay right now can pick them up for around £800.00 with 12mth warranty and a lot of the reputable sellers are doing them at the mo. My freind has just had his delivered off ebay and hes more than happy and its put me in the market for one now so i won't have to worry about the dreaded screen burn on my 42pv500 from excessive xbox360 gameplay:smashin:

    The LE32M51B seems to be very good, but i just need to wait for the price to drop another 100 quid.

    Have you seen the what must be new* HD ready 32" tv's from Toshiba in your local Comet ? I was very impressed with the Sky HD demo there were running which I went in my local store today Very nice looking sets with a great picture which looked very sharp. They were were 1368 x 768 res also

    * not new at all, been around at least since Aug last year :-/

    Thanks though I found this link before I posted, 32" bit small really for me but the display was very pleasing. If only the 42" version was the price of the 32" Maybe this time next year I guess. Currently just over £1700 from one source..

    It would be nice if they were priced the same. Like you said it's simply a case of waiting and buying accordingly.:)

    32 is ideal for the size of my room and it would be nice if people who have LCD sets could recomend or not their TV's....:lease:

    I've got a Toshiba 37WLT58 so I'd recommend the 32" version 32WLT58 with the stand

    Neoki, so what they look like, go on picture quality, it's more important - not sure of price of 32WLT58, probably out of your budget but if you're gonna get annoyed and think people can't be bothered then don't expect many decent answers

    also, you're limiting yourself quite a lot by having such a low budget

    Hey Neoki,

    I've been trying to source a decent lcd/plasma for myself also. I've just had the weekend from hell.... on thinking currys gave me a great deal on a panny 37pv500, they actually supplied me with a display model which had been on the floor for six months, and on for 12 hours a day!! Anyway, rant over, I actually think the 37 was too big for my lounge, so I'm gonna opt for a 32 lcd instead (anybody wanna talk me outta this.... feel free, I'm open to all opinions). But anyway, I've narrowed my 32" lcd choice down to the samsung LE32R41BDX £849 from play.com (you can also get the non-freeview version for £799), the other I had in mind was the tosh 32WLT58, approx £1121 with stand from Tesco. They both get excellent write-ups all over the place, the olny thing is I want/need a decent stand, and I don't think there is a stand for the samsung, and the tosh stand looks quite cool, so that's why I'm swayed towards the tosh... I think!!

    i am so in the same boat ! after a long hard think i love the look of the samsung le32m61b i dont think there is much difference between that and the le32m51b but the 61b is all back and has a cool blue light ( yes i know im sad !) the toshiba is also a good choice ( 32wlt58 avoid the wlt56 as its plop) and if you goto the freemans web site you can order it for £1200 less 20% if its your first order with them , beware freemans customer service sucks big time, if you go for the sami then just type the modle number into google and set it to uk only ( that is if your in the uk !) and it will spew out loads of places that stock them but your looking at 900-1000 for the 51b and 1100-1200 for the m61b......good luck and i hope this helps ps if you read these forums and relay on them alone for your tv choise your brain will pop !! everyones view is different !!!!! you realy should go and view the tv if possible take your source with you but i hope it all goes ok for you

    The Toshiba WLT56 series are pretty decent if you ask me but at the time (Septemeber last year) I ordered the newer 32WLT58. It's unbeleivable how chuffed I am with it.

    It has Freeview integrated, 2 x HDMI and all the other connections you'd care to expect. When I bought it it was just over £1k but now I think they are available for about the £800 - £900 mark.

    The Tosh WL58 appears to be highly rated and I am led to believe the only diff between the WL58 series and the WL56 is the intergrated Freeview and the additional HDMI.

    refer to my post in full..... all down to personal taste! when i saw the wlt56 i just felt the picture was a bit fuzzy and was not upto the standard of the ones next to it ( le32m51b, wlt58). forget about which is best on paper , go see it play with it if the shop wont let you, dont buy from them ! plenty will!

    but other people will see it and love it ..personal taste !

    if after demming a screen YOU like it then no one can tell you your wrong

    I just wondered why you said the 56 was "plop"............

    The only difference from the 58 afaik is the intergrated Freeview an extra HDMI slot and s few other bells and whistles.

    Yay, that the beauty. It a stunning set. Can't look now (at work) but could do later tonigt. Best thing is to go on Kelkoo and do a price search or look in specialist magazines.

    The cheapest price if you are prepared to wait is www.freemans.com 20% off first order. Unfortunatley just about everyman and his dog are ordering from them. Got my 37WLT58 for £1200, down from £1499. The 32" is £1200 less 20% thats £960. When you order it, it will always show £1200 the discount will appear in the bill. Also they do a credit vet and therefore may only offer you a max buying price of up to £500, what you must do is deposit the difference ASAP.
    The Guy who compared the 32WLT56 with the Samsung is most likely correct stating the Samsung looked better, but then again the Tosh would have been showing analogue and the Samsung a digital broadcast picture as the WLT56 model does not do DTV. But do remember the Tosh has 2 HDMI inputs, useful for the future when SKYHD arrives and for DVD input.

    Thanks guys,

    My search is now over and my mind is set, that was the easy part. The next massive hurdle is convincing my other half, guess a few glasses of wine are needed this weekend.

    I really don't mind paying top dollar for quality equipment and hopefully this set will be gracing my living room very shortly.:smashin:

    Ohhhh, Porter if it was so simple. I have years of experience in this field.The art is not to convince them it is great idea, but to convince them it was actually their idea.

    Believe me there is more than one way to "skin the cat" and that TV will be in our house,very soon, and with her full blessing.:D

    I posted this on the W58 thread but no one surprisingly seems to bothered. I'm rather disapointed that the UK version of the WL58 series does not have the SD card slot and also not a twin tuner as is found on the USA / Australian version, bad news, can't think why :thumbsdow :thumbsdow
