Getting real headache choosing 32" LCD!!!

Hello everyone!

I have an 28" CRT TV at the moment and would really like to 'upgrade' to a 32"LCD but I am finding it impossible to choose which one (will be getting the Oct issue so hopefully this will help) as once I make up mind I go onto forums and see people pulling the one I have chosen to pieces!

I originally thought about the Toshiba 32WLT68 but now really like the look of the Panasonic TX-32LXD700.

Does anyone have either and what do you think?

Also need a DVD Player and like the look of the Panasonic DVD S52?

I don't keep well (always go for the sympathy vote!lol) so need something which will be easy to set up and use but will great picture and sound quality as I watch a lot of TV!

I need a TV which gives a good picture in SD as this is what I will be watching. 

Does any TV have very good settings out of the box?

I will attempt to calibrate settings (hope it is easy?) but would like to do this at my leisure.

Sorry if this is a bit longwinded!!!!!

Thanks!

Loads of discussion on this topic here,
here, here, and here, and it's only two weeks until that test is published.

As far as DVD players are concerned, have a look at the Toshiba DVD-370 - it's a steal at around £50-60 and delivers a very good picture.

And for guidance on set-up, see our 'How to..." here. It's really not hard to get a better picture than the 'out of the box' one.

Thanks ever so much Andrew. Really, really appreciate your advice and will be patient and wait for the Oct edition!

I was wondering how I choose the correct height of Video Stand so that the LCD is at eye level?

This forum is great and so helpful!!!!

 Assuming you sit on a fairly conventional sofa or whatever, I reckon a stand that has its top shelf at around one metre should be about right.

I think the SONY KDL-32D3000 is great for Standard Definition TV

Andrew I have had a look at this but I am not sure whether the DVE will be any good for me as I am a bit of a technophobe so may make things worse?!

Sorry Andrew me again!

Do you mean one metre from to the top of the TV?

I have measured the video cabinet I have my 28" CRT on and it is 69cm and I think this would be too high for an LCD?
