    Hi
    First excuse my English I’m a French Canadian!
    I have 1000 cdn$ (around 650US$) and I would like a new TV
    I have two choices
    I can buy a 27” flat screen TV or I can buy a 32” ordinary TV
    My choices for a flat screen TV
    JVC I-Art 27F702
    Sony Wega 27FS13
    The new Toshiba 27AF41
    Panasonic Tau 27SX11
    For ordinary TV
    JVC D series
    Toshiba 32A50
    What do you think about that?
    TV utilisation
    80% TV only antenna (no cable or satellite)
    20% DVD
    Thanks
    Chemist

    If you price-match at Sears (as I did), you can get the 32" WEGA (the KV-32FV27) for only $1167.99.

    I would go with the JVC "D" series 32 inch screen. A 32 inch tube is almost 40% bigger than a 27 inch tube which really makes a difference when your watching anything that's shown in the letter-box format.

    i'm in the same position as you are right now. as of now, i'm leaning towards getting a 27" flat screen instead of a regular 32". once you're used to flat, it's hard to watch something on a non-flat screen, even the jvc d-series is pretty curved. when i lived with a couple of roommates in a house, we bought a 32" JVC D-series tv, and it's a pretty nice tv, but i think i'm gonna go with a flat screen instead now that i have my own place. the only non-flat screens that i like are the regular sony ones, but they're not that cheap either compared to the wegas. i've been trying to look around, but it's hard to find a place that carries all of them. For some reason i can't seem to find the JVC anywhere. Bestbuy used to have the panasonic, but they don't have it anymore and now they have the new toshiba 27AF41. I don't like the way the wega fs series looks, i prefer the fv series, but they're much more expensive. i think the only advantage the wega has over the other brands is the 16:9 enhanced mode. i think the cheapest one that i could find is the toshiba for around $500, i might go with that, but i'm still shopping around. it's really hard to tell which tv looks the best at a store, because all the settings are messed up. and since these tv's are relatively new it's hard to find some good reviews or comparisons. i might just wait it out for awhile. i don't know. anyone here had a chance to compare them? any help would be appreciated....

    Pascal, the viewable screen area (not taking overscan issues into account) on a 32 inch diagonal is 40 percent more than on a 27 inch diagonal. I think you'll need to decide for yourself if you want a bigger picture with the traditional curved tube vs. a smaller flat tube. That's really something one can only do by going and comparing the sets in person.
    good luck,

    Has Panasonic changed the Tau's to allow manual anamorphic squeeze? The Tau has a lot of problems recognizing anamorphic DVDs on certain players and needless to say, that is a serious problem.
