    The Claim

    1080p displays are the only HDTVs you should consider buying.

    The Reality

    The concept of a 1080p being the only HDTV you should purchase is a misinformed generalization. This myth has been perpetuated by various HDTV manufacturers and retailers. The reality, a high contrast ratio display with deep blacks will be perceived as sharper than comparable size 1080p display with a lower contrast ratio (see below for more on contrast ratio). Screen size is another factor.

    1080p HDTVs, with screens less than 45” have little inherent advantage over 720p displays. The smaller the display the harder it is to see a detail improvement when compared to a 1080p display. Why? The 720p and 768p screens under 45” already pack the pixels very tightly together.

    A similar effect can be observed with 7″ and under standard definition TVs (480 lines of resolution). Theses tiny TVs appear very sharp because the lines of resolution are very close to each other.

    Another consideration what will be your viewing distance? The further back you sit from the optimum viewing distance for 1080p (see chart) the harder it is to see the difference between 720p and 1080p. When you sit back beyond the maximum 720p viewing distance, you simply can’t justify the added cost of 1080p display.

    What to do about it?

    For screens below 45” consider a 720p display with high contrast and deep blacks over a 1080p display with lower contrast ratio. With the picture controls properly adjusted, you will be seen a wonderful sharp detailed high definition image that looks better that the 1080p model and costs less.
    in other words get a 720p set with a high contrast ratio. hope this helps

    Get Samsung. Best brand of the lot.

    The picture quality in-store is determined by how well it's all set up.

    Speaking of Samsungs: I'm about to buy this [Hidden link. Register to see links.] :3

    With a username like yours, I have to ask: Where you abandoned by your parents and raised in a Orphanage? If so, that explains a lot. If not, that still explains a lot.

    I've read more positive things about Samsung compaired to LG and Sharp. Also, a 32" ain't that small either once you set it up in your home, they always look smaller in the store. That was the first thing I noticed when I took my 32" home. As for what you're seeing in the store, it can be a bit deceiving because all the tvs are set at their defalt settings and will look much better once you tweek them a bit. Samsung has been my favorite lately for both their picture quality and tv design. Right now I have a 19" Samsung in my room and it's pretty sexy looking.

    I agree with Marv, that tv sounds like an awesome choice.

    get your tv calibrated because they are way too blue. its worth it.

    but dont' get it done by the employees at the best buy or other electronic store. they are usually retarded.
