Confused because neither are currently made models.

I checked both makers websites & these must be legacy models.

What I can comment on is 1) resolution: rule out 1080 because at 32" size you will not be able to appreciate the difference.

2) Dynamic contrast control: Sure higher numbers are better. At the upper end, like 100,000:1, further differences are not so important.

3) Pixel refresh rate: Smaller numbers are better; like 6ms or 4ms. This is more important for gaming than casual use. My older LCD is 12ms, which is no problem for my watching. I don't see motion blur.

4) The more recent than 3) pixel refresh rate, Video scan rate: Older sets are 60Hz, newer & better is 120Hz.

5) HDMI connectors: More is nicer. Avoid older sets with only two. For gamers like you, 3 or 4 may be needed.

6) Budget: You did not mention budget, so we don't know the price range to consider.

7) General reputation: The nod goes to Samsung, now the best selling brand & favored for reliability.

With info to work with, you may get a lot more attention.;

the UK. I keep getting caught up in my assumptions that most posters are over here when first posts don't identify. The last time, I wound up exchanging several posts with a person who wound up being from China (& yet not identified as such.)

Finding the best 360 camera

GoPro, Pixpro, or Ricoh?

You can spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on a 360-degree camera. We tested three of them to find out what kind of quality and ease of use you can expect at each price point.
