32" lcd -which one

by winniepoah / February 2, 2009 12:06 PM PST

I am trying to decide between the following
panasonic TC-32LX85
sony m4000
samsung LNa450

this is my first LCD, I was leaning toward the samsung LNa450 and it is on sale at best buy, it also was their suggestion
I do not watch sports, so quick stuff is not important, it will be in my living room which is not by a window and does not get a lot of light. I am also hooked to an attic antenna

any opinions- I see good in bad in all 3 from some of the customer reviews

does ln32a450 have a swivel base?

I got the ln32a540 at costco for the same
price and it has a swivel base. Newer model
for the same price. Hopefully they still have
some. In store only not shown on website. Got
a 2 year 3 month warranty. Costco extended the
warranty 1 year and samsung extended warranty
3 months by registering the tv. I don't think you
can go wrong with any of your choices since cnet
has rated them at the top. I just like the samsungs
for pq quality and bzillion adjustments.

I'm in virginia. I bought mine about
2 months ago. I'm getting ready to buy
another 1 for my brother. I saw some
in costco 2 weeks ago when i was in there.
I paid $600.00 for mine.

Don't know why they do this.

I called costco and depending which one, they have the 540 but not on the website because they are discontinueing them, so only certain stores have them
anyway, I asked about the extended warrenty and the manufacture is extended a year, but someone told me that that only covers like defective parts, and it is at their discretion
any thoughts on buying a tv at a big box store such as best buy etc and getting a real extended warrenty
Is it worth the extra to buy an extended, usually I am not a fan of them, but with an lcd I am not sure

This might help you answer your question

Hey. This might help answer your question...its an interactive guide with actual advice from an expert that will give you suggestions based on your actual specific needs. It's free and takes maybe 5 minutes or so.

Just as a side note: I don't want anyone to think I am spamming these boards. I do work for the company that created the guide, but I am trying to answer a legitimate question. I truly believe this will be helpful for person...if I didn't I wouldn't be spending my time working to create these guides.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
