Samsung LN32A300J: 32

Samsung‘s LN32A300J is the same as the company’s LN32A300. I think the ‘J’ at the end denotes that it is geared for Wal-Mart (and maybe other club stores). The 32″ LCD TV from Samsung doesn’t have all the bells and whistles but it does have some decent features to allow some decent HD viewing. For instance don’t get too caught up with the number of pixels. 1366 x 768 is plenty for most everyone. Besides, there aren’t that many sources for 1080p content. Connect the LN32A300 to a PS3 and it’ll look just terrific. The 6000:1 dynamic ratio is sufficient and the viewing angle is as good as the best out there. The response time of 6ms is a bit on the slow side and there aren’t any motion blur reduction technologies. That means that you’ll see some blurring when watching really fast video such as football in HD. If you don’t mind that take a look at the deal Wal-Mart is offering: $498 and that’s a great price.
