I have been trying to figure out what I want to get. I watch a ton of TV(I have it on while I am doing homework so I don't go crazy) which is the reason I am considering the 32. I also don't find black bars destracting. The 32 will only be very slightly small that the 30 in 16:9. With that said, how would the picture quality be between the 32, and the 30 in 4:3 on each vs 16:9 on each. What about video games? I really wish I knew all the technical info and how all this stuff works then this would be a much easier decision because I would know exactly what I am getting. Right now I am leaning twards the 32 4:3, because it is going to be close size on 30 16:9, and I watch a lot of tv. I know this has been discussed before, I am having a hard time choosing what I want.
