    I've been seeing this on ShopNBC lately and it seems like a good deal for a 32" LCD. My question is should I buy it? This would be mostly to play the XBOX 360 games on, which I believe needs a TV with a "native" 720p setting for the best picture quality. Any thoughts would be appreciated. [​IMG]

    The specs for contrast ratio and response time are quite respectable so it should be fine for gaming. It doesn't appear to have component video inputs according to the list of inputs but apparently does have DVI or something like it?

    It may not be as good as a Sharp or Samsung for watching SD television but probably would be fine with an external HD tuner or game console. In general the bargain panels fall down in the area of standard television performance and the quality of their scalers in comparison to the higher end mfgs but the differences are less apparent with higher quality sources.
