I'm looking at entry-level LCDs (money, money, money!) and am tossing up between the Sony 32" S-Series and Samsung LA32S71BX.  I vaguely remember reading somewhere that Samsung is the LCD manufacturer for Sony and therefore they shouldn't be overly different.  I've seen the Samsung in question in use and am wondering if there really is a difference.  Anyone have an opinion?

That forum is good. I was choosing between those two, I ended up choosing the Sony, but then not getting anything due to cashflow. There's a new model Samsung coming soon I think, i'll research again when i'm ready to buy. Both are good.

I got the LA32S71BX and I must say I am pretty happy. One thing you will have to be aware of is the options(menu) is pretty limited!

But for the quality of the picture it is very good! I had to take the contrast down quite a bit, but looks fantastic now!

sorry to derail the thread, but i just recently got myself a Toshiba REGZA 32" LCD and i have to say - for the price (1850 with extended warranty from Harvey Norman) you just can't beat it!  The quality is outstanding.  I've got it running my Media Center at 1080i resolution and it just looks gorgeous!  My old xbox is running through it via component and even that looks vibrant and crisp.  I've not yet run an 360 or ps3 through it but HD content from my PC just looks amazing.  It's got loads of features too.  for the price you can't go wrong!
