View Full Version : Which TV?

I found a buyer for my Toshiba 50" TV. Its just too big for the room i have it in, and I think its time for the HDTV upgrade. I'm looking at either 30" widescreens or 32" HDTVs. I'm not sure about the widescreens though, I've never watched one. How are they for watching sports? I'm also thinking it may be just a little too small, but the step up to the 34" widescreen is another $600.

I'm thinking about the following

Sony KV32HS420
Toshiba 30HF84
Toshiba 32HF73 (this is on the Toshiba website, but it seems to be an older model? Crutchfield no longer carries it, so I am wondering if the widescreens replaced it)

Does anyone have any experience with these, or can you recommend any others in the $800-$900 price range?

I have the Sony but its a 30" and i like it alot. That Tos Hf is last years model i think and the newer one is HFX which has 2 HDMI which is a good thing.

Hey Shokhead, can I ask you a question? Does your Sony exhibit the scrolling white bar with 1080i material? I had a Sony 34" widescreen HD set recently that exhibited it. It never bothered me--in fact, I thought highly of the set--but some people are particularly sensitive to it. Once you see it, however, you're always aware of it.
