Limited choices for LCD TV's

by piaggio00 / August 5, 2009 2:13 AM PDT

Hey all,

I'm about to buy a new 32" LCD TV I want to use primarily to play PC games and, of course, watch movies (I have a blu ray drive). I'm really new to flat screen tv's (I have a 21" flat screen monitor but thats a different thing) and I'm upgrading from a 15" 1995 Sony Trinitron (i know, ***), so anything is pretty much a huge upgrade for me. However, since I plan to stick with w/e I buy now for a while I want to make sure I get a good piece of equipement.

Now the thing is, I live in Bolivia and I really don't have many choices. I also only have about U$ 750 to spend. I wanted to know if any of you could give me a hand choosing the right TV. These are my options (only options really):

LG LG30 Series Price around US$ 700

LG LH20 Series Price around US$ 550

Samsung 5 Series Price around US$ 650

Sony Bravia M Series Price around US$ 520

Sony Bravia S Series Price around US$ 650

I heard Samsung 5 series was really good, and it has 1080p resolution... but I don't know, US$ 500 for a Sony sounds tempting too...

What do u think? Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!

Planing on picking up a US model??? Come to the US pick one up here then take it back???
The US uses 120vts and 60hz. Bolivia 220/230vts and 50hzs... Your going to have troubles.


If your picking up the tv in Bolivia, your fine. One of the Sony's... 1080p on that size does not matter.

Im getting the TV here in Bolivia and those are the most decent models I could fine on my price range.
And since you are telling me 1080p won't really make a difference in that screen size and its much cheaper I think I may just go for the Sony M.Thanks
