Even at same size and resolution there are many different quality level.
Under 40", 720P will do but if you want to watch full HD(1080P) Blue ray
movie, native 1080P is better also 120Hz is better than 60Hz for sure
for fast moving object like sports games. Plasma panel does not have
this problem. We have 65" Panasonic full HD Plasma panel with upscaling
A/V Denon receiver. We seldom go out for movie now. I help install a
full HD projector at my friend's mountain village home with a full
shebang including special custom chairs and even pop corn machine. CR
rated Vizio brand pretty high.
Look for good color reproductio at movie mode, too high contrast, to
bright display is impressive at firsat but it is hrd on your eyes for
daily watching. Sales people always jack up the brightness/contrast to
impress you. One thing to have is a set up DVD when you get the TV. The
DVD will help you set up the TV display proper to your liking. Displays
which could show near true black or true white is good one.
32 is small, for a kitchen or even a computer. If you are going up
from a tube tv than a 32 about equals a 26" tube in height of picture.
1080p is what Blue ray is but unless its maybe on your desk so you can
get real close, you might not benefit from 1080p. If its for a living
room go bigger, 120hz is smoother and 1080p is full HD only Blue Ray
has now [that I know of] You best price points might be for what sells
for near 1000 or a bit less. Eventualy it will all be Blue Ray 1080p
dvd, so consider the future if you rent or buy DVDs, and then there
are internet tvs, and 3d, but I dont know much about that.
Between 720p and 1080p there is a noticeable difference, but probably
only if you are watching OTA TV in 1080i/p, have HD cable, are using the
TV as a monitor, or are watching Blu-Ray discs. I have a 720p
TV/monitor and a 1080p TV/monitor, and the 1080p one ended up on my desk
because it is just so superior to the other one as a computer monitor,
even though I like it better as a TV as well.
