32" Westinghouse and a 27" Westinghouse. I'm completely satisfied. And acceptable sound (for small speakers).
The short of it:
Can anyone recommend a good 32" LCD HDTV that's suitable for bedroom use (news, sports, Xbox 360) that has relatively good sound and picture quality w/o requiring a surround setup? Ideally I'd like to stick to the $600-$800 range if possible.
More: The wife and I decided it would be nice to have an HDTV for the bedroom, and our furniture setup allows for up to a 32" LCD. We don't need anything extravagant as this will not be our primary TV. I'd like it for watching news in the mornings and sports in the evenings/weekends. Plus it'll be a bonus TV for the kids when mom and dad are tying up the living room television, etc. We'll also be hooking up an Xbox 360 via component and an up-converting DVD player via HDMI. I do NOT wish to have any type of receiver/surround setup in my bedroom--too complicated. I just want built-in speakers that sound good.
I bought a Magnavox 32MF231D at CC last week. The SD and HD picture was beautiful (IMO, limited as it is). But the audio was HORRIBLE. The speakers were so "tinny" and high-pitched--anytime a sports announcer enunciated an "S" or "T" it felt like my ears were going to bleed. The speakers seemed to lack any sort of mid-range... it was highs or nothing. I retuned it ASAP. My 10 y/o RCA tube TV sounds better.
Circuit City, Wal-mart, Best Buy--they are all too loud and busy to test audio on these TV's very effectively, so I am looking for help.
