New and want to know if Samsung LCD and Sony Playstation 3..

by novicestill / May 27, 2008 10:18 AM PDT

would be a good combination for a set up in my bedroom. Bedroom size is 11x13 feet. Components will be on top of my 62 and 17 inch dresser.

I want to buy the Samsung LN32A550 and the Sony Playstation 3 (want the Blu Ray DVD and wireless internet connection ). I have never played any video games so I may be surprised and like it.

I don't want to buy a home theatre set so it would just be the LCD, HDTV receiver (rental from Timewarner Cable) and the Sony Playstation 3.

Also, do I need to get two HDMI 1.3 cables? I am thinking of the Cable Unlimited brand for $22 each from Amazon.

HDMI 1.3, might as well, finding none 1.3 hdmi is getting harder & hard to find now days. It would also be better in the future, you will not have to worry when you upgrade or use that cable on another TV if it is 1.3 or not (they don't lable them).

Samsung make great LCD's tv's, you may want to look at getting one or two sizes up tv (37 or 40inch), 32" is on the small size for Blu-ray.

For sound, if the tv speakers don't do it for you, you can get some powered computer speakers (2.0, 2.1, 5.1 or 7.1 set-up) & use the tv audio out port as a 'receiver', it would not replace a true/real receiver, but it would give you more better sound opptions.

True, Sony's even getting into competitive larger sizes now.

If you got a PS3, now that Sony has also became more competitive with their 2008 Bravia lineup, you might want to consider pairing up your PS3 with maybe a 46" at least, since those are becoming far more affordable than they've ever been before, especially a big brand name like Sony. Also, as other have said, Samsung is really on the up and up this year, so yeah... Between those two brands, you just can't lose.
