Default Looking for a 32" Full HD.

Im in Sydney (Sutherland Shire) Australia.

Hey guys. Im actually trying not to post very often on these boards for the next week as an experiment. So if i dont reply, i have indeed seen your reply and post and i thank you.

So, im looking for a 32" Full HD (1080p) TV from a decent brand for under $1000AUD. Can be either LCD or Plasma, doesnt bother me. I just cant seem to find anything that is full HD and 32" for that price....

I just need to be able to go in and see it, so needs to be from a place like HarveyNorman, JBHifi, The Good Guys, Bing Lee etc.

This is what i regard as the perfect TV that im looking for, just $200 less. lol:

if you can find a 1080p tv for under 1000AUD its gonna look like absolute ****.

why is it that you want 1080p over 720p?

A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.

I usually hate people who do what I'm about to do but.....

In the 32 inch TV realm, there really is no visible difference between a solid 720 model and its 1080p counterpart. If it was my purchase I really wouldn't be absolutely stuck on getting 1080p unless it was at least 40 inches.

Yup, there's a reason why most sets 32" are 720p.

Mine is 720p and the picture is still very stunning.

I have a Sharp 720p and 1080p, both 32". When I play a blu-ray, there is very little difference. I can notice it, but hardly worth the extra cash.
