I have narrowed my possible choices down to:
Sony KLV32U300A - $999
Toshiba 32A3500 $1199.00
Sony KLV32V300A - $1297.00
Samsung LA32R81BX - $1300.00
$1000.00 was my original max budget, but somehow that crept up to $1100.00 :). This leaves me with two choices : Sony KLV32U300A or Samsung LA32S81BX. Have any of you geekzone members ever purchased one of these two? If so I would be very interested to hear your thoughts / experiences. I would also like to know what factors contribute to the price difference between the two Samsung models or the two Sony models? Is the KLV32V300A far better than the KLV32U300A etc.?
I mainly plan to use the TV for the Playstation 3 (using HDMI) and viewing bluray/DVD movies. Our reception sucks so I doubt I'll watch much TV on it!
Tomorrow I am going to walk into DSE and do a side-by-side comparison. What are the most important things to consider when comparing the TVs?
In the list above I have included three TVs outside of my budget just in case you guys come to the conclusion that my first two alternatives suck and that it is crucial I get something else! :)
Ultimately my question for you is, if you were to visit your local electronics store with my budget, which TV would you walk away with?
Thanks very much for reading my first geekzone post!
