    As Frank said it all depends on what your planning on using the set for? If it's going to be your main set I would save up around $100 more & get a Flat-Tube JVC or Toshiba. Both the Flat-Tube JVC & Toshiba also have the 16:9 Mode for DVD's & I've seen the JVC 32" Model AV-32FA44 for as low as $488.88

    Hard for me to imagine getting any set these days that does not have HDTV compatibility.

    The cheapest 32" HDTV I know of is about $570, well over what seems to be a budget of $400....

    Let us know which one you buy. I don't have experience with any modern non-hd/standard sets.

    Space is the biggest issue. I measured and I only have about 32" wide and 27" tall to play with, that's why it has to be a 32". I would get the flat screen, but unfortunately all those are a couple inches too wide, and a 27" is too small. The TV is going in the living room in a space above the fireplace that has sort of a half moon shape to it. That's why it can only be 32". Thanks for your help.

    If you want a 32" HDTV set check out the Panasonic "Tau" model CT32HXC43
    Wide: 31.9" High: 26.3" Deep: 22.4" Circuit City carries this model & if you fight with them you should be able to get it for around $850

    Frank, Yes, No 16:9 Mode but maybe you can get into the Service Menu to get it? But that would be one of the trade off's because of the space requirements & yes the Zenith's are nice sets for the money but I don't think there going to fit into the space he has because it would have to be a 32" set that had the speakers on the bottom of the set not the sides.
     


  8. I've moaned about that issue in other threads (the almost complete lack of good CRTs with speakers *under* the screen.

    I have an EC with about 34" in width which eliminates about 98% of 32" units out there.

    It's no bid deal though...when I upgrade from the 27", I'll probably scrap the EC and get something much bigger.
