LG seem very popular with these new members. Could they possibly be sales people for LG I wonder?
I wouldn't mind looking at their other posts to check.

Though not as obvious as the other two
I too am currently looking to buy a 32" smart TV. Don't really wish to spend more than £500. Whilst 3D would be a bonus, my primary requirements are that it performs well with 2D/HD and has good smart functionality (catch up services, web, etc).
I'm open to considering the LG sets (and the LG32LM620T seems to be available well within budget), though I'd like some recommendations of other sets. Look forward to reading people's comments.
What's your budget? What are the basic features you will mainly use??
I'm not sure about the original poster's budget, though mine is a max of £500. Main use will be watching freeview/freeview HD TV, but would also be hoping to make use of smart functionality, like BBC iplayer, ITV on demand, etc.
Either of you bothered about 3D? And yes, I'd have to agree on the suspicious posts.
(Though having a look at the LGs in work, I am very impressed with this year's top end LED models . .)

And in reply to the OP and others, we've just tested the Sony KDL-32HX753 which is a cracking set. Clickety
I was actually thinking of buying my first TV and it was going to be an LG... but im waiting until the Olympics are over because they said that TV prices would go down... and maybe someone that bought their TV especially for the EM and the Olympics might want to sell it for "cheap"...
Thanks for the suggestion. The Sony KDL-32HX753 does look like a nice set – I actually had a quick look at one in Richer Sounds just the other day. Whilst it appears to be available online for under £600, unfortunately it’s still over my £500 budget. I’ll need to ponder whether I want to stretch that. Have you tested the Samsung UE32ES6300 as well and, if so, how does it compare to the Sony? The Samsung is available within budget and seems similarly well specced.
Ryan – Whilst 3D would be a nice bonus, I’m not too bothered about it with respect to this TV which will be a second set. I’ll probably upgrade my main TV at some point next year, which will definitely include 3D. Therefore, if I can get the same (or better) quality standard def/HD pictures and SMART features on a set without 3D and save a significant chunk of money, I’d rather do that. For example, how do you think the Sony KDL-32EX653 compares to the KDL-32HX753? Does the faster processor on the 753 make a significant difference with standard/HD pictures?
My Sony EX 65 is great
