I picked up a 32" Acer on Thursday. $699 less a $129 cashback.
Beat that for a 32" TV!

I'm not sure what Freeview signal you were watching! It will give you the best picture quality you're likely to see from a LCD or Plasma.
Whatever store you visited obviousy had things very poorly set up - are you sure they weren't showing Sky?

I work at Dicksmith Electronics and usually have freeview SD or a DVD player attacted to Televisions on display. The thing to watch is that you may notice that the quality of the pictures would get worse from one end to the other as the DVD signal (in our store we had five televisions hooked up to a DVD player) gets weak as it goes in one television and out to another, ask the staff if they could connect a DVD player DIRECTLY to the television you wish to purchase to see the full potential. If the television is on a SD media source ask them if they could connect it to a freeview HD decoder. We did however hooked up a couple of Televisions (the high end ones) to Freeview HD which blew me away! We had great sales on LCDs and Plasmas 30% off the mark price (including ones already reduced). Sadly the sale is over but if you want a discount try asking the DickSmith staff if you could purchase the display models (usually happens when the only one they have in stock is the display television) - in somecases that alone could whack off $100 off the RRP.
