LG 32LB5610 - Is this a full HD TV or only HD ready?  Websites say it's FULL HD in title but in description most of them say HD Ready. Has anyone got this TV so it can be confirmed?

Also, would there be a huge difference in picture quality between the above and LG 32LB563B JB Hi Fi?

Specs seem to be different on each site.

Reality on a 32" TV is you won't easily spot the difference between a 720p and a Full HD panel at normal viewing distance.


Banana?

Pretty sure the 5610 is Full HD. The 563B at JB is HD Ready.
The difference other than that is the price. Pretty hard to tell looking at them from normal viewing distances.

Why so much price difference between the two then. 5610 is almost double the price of the other one from JB.

768p 32" LCDs are the bottom of the market. Cheapest 50Hz panel, cheapest electronics and from LG probably cheapest build quality too.

There aren't many 1080p 32" TVs still available as they're sold to more discerning buyers. Panasonic and Samsung have a model each I'd get over the LG

You should be able to get the AS630Z in the $500-$574 price range and the H5500 at $550-$572.

Sony has a model too but it has weaker speakers.

Reality on a 32" TV is you won't easily spot the difference between a 720p and a Full HD panel at normal viewing distance.

There shouldn't be but every 768p 32" I've seen has had terrible scaling that made the difference greater than it should be. A 1080p doesn't have to do scaling for 1080i once the viewer has turned overscan off.
