Looking for a new TV

I've seen alot of people post about their televisons and thought I'd get some info or suggestions from you guys.

 

My current TV is nothing special, but it has a HUGE purple (sometimes yellow) spot in the middle if it. So needless to say I need a new one. My question to you guys is what should I get.

 

I saw this at Besy Buy: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=7045431&type=product&productCategoryId=pcmcat31800050031&id=1099396991028

 

My budget is $700 max., looking for HD, and would like widescreen.

 

I don't know much on brands and thing of this nature. Your suggestions are much appreciated.

Keep in mind that a 32" 4:3 TV has a viewing area of a 29" 16:9 set, but a 30" WS set has a 24" size for 4:3 TV.

 

And the 30" WS set is normally about the same price as the 32" 4:3. Worth considering possibly staying with 4:3.

 

There was a good screen calculator somewhere but I can't find my link...here's a simple one at cnet..

Plug in the sizes on each kind of set to find out how big of an image you get.

 

 

 

That said, Samsung is a good bang/buck choice. Honestly if you can find a Panasonic or a Toshiba in your price range you would be getting a better set IMO. The other cheap bang/buck set you might want to consider are the Sanyo sets at Walmart.

You'd probably want to pick them up instore. I hate supporting the evil empire of Walmart and all, but they are generally regarded as very good quality for the $ over on AVSforum.

 

 

Spend a little more IMO on a Panasonic, $769 at Circuit City:

 

4:3 32"
