I'm looking to upgrade my bedroom TV with a 32-inch 1080p.

I'd like to keep the cost relatively low.

Any sweet deals out there?

The cheapest that I've found is the Vizio at Costco for $549.99. They extend the original warranty by two years for free, so you're covered for three years.

It's a great deal, IMO.

I think this was discussed in a previous thread, but isn't 720p the highest you can visibly register a difference at below 40"?
Anywho...I have that Vizio in my office and it is pretty good. We bought like 5 for our office when we started doing the PS3 ads, and one of them went kaput in three months, the rest are still going strong.

Dude - Several years ago, I read a study which showed that couples who did not have a TV in the bedroom were intimate more often.

I removed my bedroom TV that day and it has not reappeared in nearly 5 years. I do not miss the TV at all. Neither does my wife.

Intimacy is not a problem.

The problem is, we would only have one TV in our place then, which would mean I wouldn't get to watch all the sports I want, and force me to watch Grey's Anatomy and stupid shows like that.

You aren't going to notice a difference at that size. Get a good TV with a good internal scalar at 720p, and call it a day.

I know it's not a 32, but I just bought a 22 in Vizio 1080p from Sam's Club last night. I'm impressed with it so far for $290.

I'd be very surprised if you could notice the difference between 1080p and 720p at 32". Just FWIW.

They have a 32" Sylvania LCD at my local Costco for $399.99.

Unless there's a reason to have 1080p on a 32" LCD (and there are reasons), I'm sure the Sylvania's of the world are just fine.

Probably more than fine.

Agree with Dane on distance and resolution. If your watching too far away then 1080 might be not worth it. there are some charts out there.

try those price comparison like amazon.com and pricegrabber.

They have all of these models at Costco for $549.99 or less.

Again, the best thing about buying from Costco is that they automatically add 2 years to the warranty at no additional charge.

That's worth it alone.

You are positive that they are those exact models?

Samsung makes 3 different models for 32" LCDs alone.

Yeah. I checked them all out over Christmas.

The Sharp is $499.99 at Costco for that same model.

The Samsung is $549.99.

I think the Toshiba was $549.99 as well.

I need a 1080p, so I'll probably move my 32" 720p Aquos into that room and get a 37" or 42" 1080p in the room that needs it.
