32 inch bedroom TV (second TV)
« on: 02 October 2014, 12:46:21 PM »

As said in the subject of the topic i am looking for a 32 inch TV for my bedroom. I will be using it for watching sports, movies and various TV channels. The budget is around 400 . The bedroom is quite dark.

Any recommendations and suggestions are most welcome.

Thank you!

Hi

I haven't tested any 32-inch TVs this year, but judging from larger models, the leading choices are the Samsung UE32H6400 and the Sony KDL32W705.

My reviews of the larger versions here:

If sports is important, the Samsung will have better motion clarity - it's equipped with motion-compensated frame interpolation, whereas the Sony isn't.

Warmest regards
Vincent

Because of the way LCD's refresh (sample and hold method), there will be (or, you will perceive(?)) motion blurring no matter how fast it is (AFAIK), unless a (usable*) black frame insertion (BFI) mode is implemented.

(*BFI can have issues with excessive flicker and/or extremely low brightness on some TV's, rendering it more or less useless.)
Panasonic TX-P55VT60Y, PS4, PS3, X360, Wii, Pioneer VSX-421, Sony SS-FCR4000 5.0, Yamaha YST-FSW100.

I read both the reviews on this site, and in a lot of other places, it feels to me like there's not much to choose between the 2 sets, would you agree?

Yes, they will look pretty similar in overall. Both quite good for the money, I'd say. They definitely can be recommended for your bedroom.
