Just so you know, if your mac is older then april 2010, you wont get sound trough the hdmiadapter regardless.

Yup, but still look around as maybe be able to get bigger screen, freeview playback and a blu ray cinema system chucked in.

Too late, went for this in the end as the white will look much better.
Seems to get good reviews just hoping it won't look too small

Has anyone seen any good deals knocking around for a 32" LCD/LED - will be going on bedroom wall. Or any discount codes for Currys etc? I know John Lewis offer free 5 year guarantees on their TV's, but I think their pricing is higher than most.

John Lewis price match as long as it is a physical store. Worth a bit of faffing about to get the 5 yr guarantee imo

Current TV is on its last legs - any recommendations for a new one, under £200 and up to 32"?

If anyone's interested, I have Brand New Sony W829 for sale. It's been opened but totally as new. Would sell for £480.

Is it poss to get a 32" TV with full hd (not 720p) for around £200? Anyone seen any deals? (or can you not tell the diff between 720p and 1080p?)

This Samsung is pretty good and full HD for £229. Has been a little cheaper but most places seem sold out now. Quality of screen, colours, motion etc is more noticeable than number of pixels. You can have a full HD tv that can have a worse picture than a 720p if the screen and processing is poor quality.

Sorry to dig up an old thread, moving into a new place and need a 32" TV. As above, anything in the 32" range for £200, or is the above Samsung still decent.

Is there anyone in the TV market similar to how Apple (no fanboy) are the best for phones? Would it be Sony or Samsung?

Sony tend to be better than Samsung right now though probably not much in it sub 40".
This seems alright and has good reviews but slightly over your budget http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00HZAVAC0 at £269.99

My 5 year old 32" Samsung decided to give up the ghost yesterday (T-con failure I think) so looking for a replacement.

Anywhere have this model with a 3 or 5 year warranty? If not, any Sony full HD LED TVs in 32"(can be an older model and not necessarily a smart TV either) for similar price and with a good warranty please? Trying to avoid Samsung if possible but looks like they're the only big manufacturer still pursuing the small TV market Puzzled

Normally good deals on HUKD but pickings have been slim recently on there Cry

Bought that 32" Sony for my parents recently and it's spot on for them, simple to use and none of the internet shite that come with TV's nowadays.

You don't need to drop money on a warranty for a tele, Vazza. If it fucks up after a couple of years you'd still be able to argue that the lifespan of a Sony should far exceed that period even with more than moderate usage and thus make a claim using your statutory rights against the seller for reimbursement in the form of a repair. Personally, I've exclusively bought Sony tele's over the years and NONE of them have ever given up the ghost.
