Sony had not release any new models yet for the 32 inch', if I'm not mistaken. The model you've mentioned above is definitely a bit more advanced (with better specs) than the current Sony models, which cost about the same price.

Yes Sony Bravia is the best HDTV so far. Go for D, V or W Series. But your budget seem to me you only can afford S Series only maa

If you are planning to get Sony LCD tv, better wait a while. Recently they just launched W400 series which us Full HD for 32",40",46" and 52". After this S400 (low end), V400 (mid range) will be in market. S series most probably around end of this month or early next month. All models now high gloss for the tv stand and bezel. Much2 better than 07 models.

Current prices for Sony 32" Bravia LCD TVs

KLV-32S310A = RM2.3K
KLV-32V300A = RM2.7K
KLV-32D300A = RM3.6K (this model has very low supply in stock, only a few Sony Authorised Dealers have it)

When buying a Sony Bravia, make sure to ask a free HDMI cable because if you don't ask they purposely will forget....

Consider sharp as well. Their Aquos line is pretty fantastic. Best way to decide is to watch the screens yourself! FYI, Sharp spent more time in LCD production business than Sony. They were the first to break into the LCD market.

Legend doesn't have any stocks for KLV-32D300A as they're not a Sony Authorised dealer. I got my KLV-32D300A + free HDMI cable from a Sony Authorised dealer at Section 1 Wangsa Maju.

Is the W-series in the market yet? I haven't seen any around... also planning on a 32" for gaming purposes, and got a slightly more budget, so the W-series is rather enticing drool.gif

really?

a 32" res is 1368x768

that's more than the usual 1280x768 that most laptops have today. and i browse just fine with my laptop.

my concern would be multitasking, as there won't be enuf space to have multiple windows of browsers and word processors

I'm not so sure whether Sony will bring in 32" W series as they already have 40" and above for the new W400A series.

@Gurdian, I'm using my 32D300A as a second monitor (dual monitor setup) for my PC using the VGA input. The text and PQ are excellent. All my mkvs looks really cun. The most important thing is how you calibrate your LCD tv to get the most out of it.

Oh, okay. How about the upcoming S400 series? Anyone know what's the difference between it and the current S310 series? I tried searching for it but couldn't find any specs or anything.

Although it looks like its got more pixels, the pic is not as sharp coz the screen is bigger and so are the pixels. But I use a 32" LCD as my monitor and its good enough for me. You can test with smaller fonts to get more on the screen.

Before I bought my 32D300A, I've tested playing PS3 games and BD movies on 32S3100A and Samsung R7 as two of my brothers own them. As a result, 32S3100A gives better PQ on both PS3 games and BD movies than R7. Then I went to Harvey Norman to compare between 32V300A and 32S3100A and the winner is 32V300A.

After doing some research on the net I found out that 32D300A gives better result than 32S3100A and 32V300A. So I ended up buying the 32D300A and I never regret I made the choice. All BD movies play fluidly as it has 1080p/24p True Cinema where it eliminates the judder. The 100Mhz also works well in games and movies.

I bought mine at Unhuat Electronics (a Sony Authorised Dealer), opposite Alpha Angle, Wangsa Maju (just infront a Shell station). I remembered that they said that they still have a few units left when I bought one 2 weeks ago.

Here's a quote taken from avsforum regarding 100/120Hz effect in games

QUOTE
This is my test results running games on these new motion interpolated enabled TVs running GEARS of WAR and Halo 3 which also normally runs at 30fps.

Samsung calls this technology Auto Motion Plus
games runs 60fps about 80 to 90% of the time

Sony calls it MotionFlow
games runs 60fps about 50 to 60% of the time

Philips calls it Digital Natural Motion or HD Natural Motion or TrimensionDNM
Haven't tried it, haven't found one yet

Mitsu calls it Smooth120hz
Suck, hardly even notice its working, maybe about 10% of the time

Toshiba calls it ClearFrame120hz

JVC calls it LCD Clear Motion Drive II

I'm not sure with the Sharp if they call it Fine Motion Advance.

These motion enhancers are really cool for games. I still have yet to test it on the Toshiba, JVC, Sharp and on the Philips.
I still want to try the JVC, Toshiba, Sharp

Is it the Sony D-Series that has that "100-Hz" technology that supposedly smoothes our Astro?

if you want brand to show off because you have more money and can afford the more expensive sony - then by all mean get the sony.

if you want an a 32" LCD TV, Panasonic, Toshiba, Samsung, Sharp ALL at or under RM2,000. Check the Audiophile thread- there are plenty of people selling LCD TVs at the price that i have mention. Prices starts at <>$1,800 (Samsung).

Personally, I'd just recommend a 1080p lcd tv to you blu-ray fans. Philips got a 37 inch PFL7422 1080p tv around RM3k. Most places sell them around 4K though.

Whahaha it's not me selling it. My friends own one of the sony centre and he gave me that price. he said SPECIAL PRICE only for me.

So far noone can give me that price ... I nearly bought a Sharp 32a53m for my xbox... but in the end i've settle for something average but works for me. LG 32LC7R . So far SOO good. For 32" i don't wanna think about it too much ... If i'm purchasing a 42 and above i might consider a sharp. hehehe

I don't think it's that easy to decide based on brand alone. Both Sharp and Samsung are equally good brands. You'll want to compare which particular model you're interested in. Samsung alone already has many series: S7, S8, R7, R8, and more recently the M series. Only the M series is capable of accepting 1080p signal. I can't comment on Sharp since I haven't used one personally.

I'm using the 32" R8 Samsung model. It has 3 HDMI ports and is 720p native. 360 games look bright and vivid on the TV. Unfortunately, it's not "perfect". HDTV lag can occur if you don't tune it properly. You can practically see framerates drop in games, and in movies it's even worse. I love the TV nonetheless, once you get down to finetuning it.

Do you insist on only these two brands? If you're willing to broaden your option, I'd suggest looking at LG. LG recently released their new 32LB9R TV. It outputs at 720p, but can accept 1080p signal. And the price is only around RM2600. It's worth looking at.

All display devices need tuning to look best. In the case of my Samsung TV, it's not just a matter of tuning the contrast, colour and brightness levels. There are also the colour mode (dynamic, standard or soft), movie mode (on/off), game mode (on/off), frequency (100Hz or progressive) and some others. I know some people who like to turn every option on when tuning their TV. At first glance, everything seems in order, until you start noticing lag in games or movies. I can't comment on other models or brands, but even so you'd want your TV to look its best by finetuning it.

^ The Samsung R8 is not a bad LCD TV but the horrendous viewing angle drops it a few point. Try to look at your TV slight off the side and u'll notice the screen will start to turn bluish. I know this happens with most LCD TV but the R8 seems to exhibit this more. Also, the reds are kinda over exaggerated but can be tuned down in the white balance. This used to be my gaming and movie LCD TV but after using it for about 6 months, I finally gave up on it. Having to adjust its settings everytime I watch a movie isn't that fun anymore.

Makes u wonder why they include the Dynamic setting when the results it produces are so contrasty to a point its almost unusable

Lastly, I've tried tuning the color using Digital Video Essential Blu-ray disc. The greens and reds are way off and no matter how hard I tried, I can't make them look "right". The blue however is spot on.

Agak2 dalam RM3500-RM4500. Rasanya lah.. Aku beli 42 inch nyer for RM5350 bulan Januari lepas. Sekarang harga patut lagi turun dah.. Pegi kedai2 elektrik yg biasa2. Kalau pegi tempat2 macam Harvey Norman or HSL, susah nak dapat that kind of price.

actually if u really want a Full HD LCD... always go for 40" and above. Otherwise, u dont really utilize the HD to the fullest. It means that we cant really see the difference between HD ready and Full HD LCD.

From my survey

Panasonic -image quality is a little bit grainy even when watching BD.

Samsung/LG (any model) -The worst image quality if u watch Std Def. Source. The worst black level detail. Good enough for HD source.

Sharp -The best image quality at default setting. Expensive.

Sony -Just nice for the price. Good image quality for Std Def source and HD. Have to tune a little bit to optimize viewing pleasure. High colour concentration -beautiful but un-natural.

Toshiba -the best black level detail but the LCD TV design is not attractive.

Philips -Build quality issues (a lot of complaint from consumers lately -send back to factory)

IMO, the above survey is no longer accurate. Nowadays, many new models are out with better quality. A lot of them has great picture watching Blu-Ray and playing PS3.

My Astro picture looks like watching DVD on Samsung F8 Series 46" 100Hz Full HD LCD. For the black effect, they have Black enhancement function now. So problem solve.

Btw, nowadays Sharp Aquos price is on par with other brands now. It is affordable.

i bought myself samsung 32" A450
its superb LCD i made a lot of surveying around..
& comparing quality with other LCD..
its 10000:1, price also competitive.. wit 3 hdmi.

after i set it up to my system then i post a pic..
the design also super..

personally i feel its better than sony S series..
design n specs wise too.. but slightly more exp..
but sony has a new one with bravia engine 2..
that one is glossy price also cheaper than samsung..
but i dun really like that design..
quality look really good though..

p/s: sony S series use samsung's panel..

As far as I know, only Samsung Series 5 offers FULL HD for a 32" LCD TV. The rest might be launching similar specifications i guess. I am actually in a dilemma myself to get a FULL HD 32" panel or settle for HD Ready panel only. We know that most games output at only 720P. hmm.gif Getting FULL HD means that I will have to pay 1K+ extra. tough call doh.gif

i think that depends on ur viewing distance..
if ur quite far away then dont bother on the full HD
furthermore.. 40" above then u'll really appreciate 1080p..

For the best, go for Sharp Aquos. The Aquos LCD line are the leaders in the LCD market.

If u ask any LCD TV expert, they will recommend you an Aquos. But if ur on a budget, just go for the Samsung R series.

Please don't make dynamic contrast ratio as your buying preference. This figure can be misleading and it is just marketing 'hoo ha'. Every person has different eyes -just trust your own eyes and your budget.

For me, the best image quality for my eyes is Sharp aquos but I bought Sony Bravia S because of the budget (good price/performance(image quality) ratio). Note that this is my personal preference.

There's a button on the remote where you could try to switch the Wide mode to FULL, Normal, Zoom and etc... it should display your TV signal to 4:3 if you like..

Migrated from DELL 22" HDMI monitor to Aquos 32" LCD TV. I would say DELL display sharper images (nearing FULL HD) whereas my 32" LCD managed 720P only. Nevertheless it's always better to be playing on a bigger screen. Easier to snipe tongue.gif

When i switched from 22" to 32" it meant a world of difference for me, so yeah, 360 on 32" hits the sweet spot.

So far, my research for 32"
All this model support 1080p signal (input not output)

All sony bravia (certain model FULL HD)
For Sony 32s400 - rm 2300
Samsung series 4, 32a450 - rm2250 ( rclxms.gif model i want to grab this november - habis study)
(series 5 Full HD)

L32a01a - Hitachi
L32s01a - Hitachi

32LG30Ra - LG
32LB9r - LG
32LB9r1 - LG
32LG50d - LG
32LG60UR - LG
32LC4R -LG
32LC7R - LG

32LX800MK - Panasonic

For sharp...pity cannot accept the 1080p signal for 32''
Ok...anyone know the price just add on the side (right) of model above...

one day i visited a local arcade and i saw people playing tekken 6 on a 32 inch lcd tv.

i'm amazed with the picture quality, the contrast level and colour...i took a peek on the back of the

lcd panal and its sony klv32s310. i decided this is the model i should get. then i went to electrical shop,

and found out the s310 is the older model and now replaced with s400. Later i surf the net( cnet) for reviews then

found out Samsung series 4(according to the review), 32a450 is even better than sony klv32s400. and samsung a450 even cheaper than s400.

now i'm lost and confused.


samsung 32a450 == rm 2399
sony 32s400 == rm 2499

i prefer sony but after reading the review, samsung might be a better choice. what do you think guys?

samsung series 4 not bad. i have 2, another one is sharp aquas 53m which have 100mzh.

in game, samsung better la cuz less ghosting. movie also better cuz this panel is capable to display 1080p signal.. which is reduce signal to 720p. another thing is this samsung panel can support 24p cinema mode. there is slighly improvement on the ghosting. tested with sweedny todd and 3:10 to yuma.

sharp mah... it is much better in viewing tv show and DVD movie because of the help of the 100mzh signal.

that's all~

Is the Panasonic 32LX800MK any good? Most of the electrical shops I went don't even have a display unit and the sale persons all discourage me from buying. Most of them asked me to buy Sony or Samsung instead. Any opinion? I am looking for a 32" LCD for PS3, Blue-Ray and also Astro.

Yup, samsung really good in quality and design (own perception)... 3 and 4 series (HD ready) come with affordable price which suitable for either movie or games... Anyway, for me, I'll either chose series 5 or 6 (Full HD) flex.gif

For below RM2K, either Toshiba 32AV500E or Samsung 32A330. All LCD TV supports 720p and 1080i.

I use bravia 32 400S for those. Astro is clear, wii is superb and also the dvd playback.

Last time I bought at Jusco and got 5% discount. For rm2499 i got RM2375. Warranty is the same like sony shop. Try n ask at Jusco whether there are still discount or not. (coz Jusco always hv sale)

i really should listen to this guy, but i don't. don't make the same mistake as i did.

"My suggestion is try keep out of Samsung LCD TV because of market pricing competition issue, they have gradually low grade their products & qualities. Instead you may consider on Toshiba, Sony or Sharp.....
You will notice the differences even on the product weight itself. I was enlighted by a close pal which working in Audio Video division.

Added on August 7, 2008, 7:55 pmif compare a 24" FullHD monitor(1920x1080) and a 32" LCD TV (1366x768) BUT only displaying a 720p signal (for dvd with only 720p output or PS3 games with only 720p),will 24" LCD monitor win in term of PQ ?  hmm.gif

The TV will win actually.

Because the resolution of the TV is that much closer to that of the native 1280x720.

my advice to you...do not buy samsung!!!!

i just bought samsung series 4 a week ago...after one day i got 2 dead pixel!!

call the shop and they replaced it with a new set but also the new one got one dead pixel!!!

now i just hav to accept my lcd got one dead pixel as the warranty don't cover for a dead pixel unless u got a lot of dead pixels.

one more thing, there was one occasion i was watching astro discovery channel, and the sound was delayed..only after change channel
it become normal again.

I'm using TSB 32" LCD as well,for me when watching BD and PS3,720p is better then 1080i.

To get better pic from astro,instead of using S-Video,i think the other option is get a amplifier with upscalling facility,u can input the astro signal to it and upscale to 720p.

hey guys. if i'm on a low budget (<rm1k), and cannot afford HD-Ready LCD TV for my PS3, would it be better for me to buy 22"-24" LCD monitor (DVI/HDMI input, HDCP) or is it a better to buy a HD-Ready CRT TV (with HDMI input).. in terms of picture quality, both should be he same rite since both are only HD-Ready, and not full HDTV. btw, is it still possible to buy brand new HD-Ready CRT from shops and how much do they cost?

thanks Hatter,so u mean need to throw the shield on the right then let it reflex and hit the gong ya....thanks thanks,will try later. thumbup.gif

FYI,between Sammy & Sony,i'm not sure about the diff in PQ from PS3 but according to "trusted sources" from the repair service here,Sammy got more "problem" compare to Sony.I'm not saying Sammy is not good as i got a friend here bought a Sammy Series 3 few week ago and so far no issue at all,maybe just luck lor. tongue.gif

ok,here come the BD on Panny 37LX80MK :
user posted image

Frankly,i dun see much diff between my previous sample TSB 32AV500E,unless putting them side by side,same source/wire/time/place.From my 1st impression,i found Panny is very good in contrast,i set it in Eco Mode,Brightness reduce to 42 and sharpness to 6,colour temp "cool",the rest maintance.Gameplay(Heavenly Sword) is still nice,superb colour saturation,more "natural" compare to TSB which looks a bit fake.Anyway,i dun think i'm in the position to judge the diff in PQ for both as i didnt compare both side by side.I'm juz sharing base on what i saw from both LCD,at diff time.

BTW,anyone can share the setting of colour for Panny 37LX80MK as reference ? thanks in advance thumbup.gif

Thank you for the info myqd...I need recommendations..

Basically i'm just looking for a reliable HDTV with superb clarity/sharpness/colour...
Something in the RM2000-3000 price range..for gaming and movies..
If it has a PC input, it would be an additional bonus..

And can someone tell me what are HD signals..like (720p, 1080i, 1080p)...what does it mean???
And also contrast ratio (10000:1)...i'm new to TV's.. tongue.gif

I'm no expert in this field, but to my knowledge and experience:

What is HD?
HD stands for high definition, in which case the industry standard is 720p, 1080i and 1080p. Standard definitions (480i) and enhanced definitions (480p) are not.

What are all the fuss of SD, ED or HD?
It's all about screen resolution. SD is 640x480 interlaced, ED is 640x480 progressive while HD includes, but not limited to, 1280x720 progressive, 1920x1080 interlaced and progressive. When a LCD TV says HD ready, then it's native is normally 1366x768, While Plasmas are either 800x600 or 1024x768. Full HD means native resolution is 1920x1080.

Progressive vs Interlace
Progressive is what you see on your computer screen right now, meaning all the vertical lines (eg. 1280x720, 720 is the amount of vertical lines) are displayed. Interlace is what you see on an old television set (must be older CRT TV), where you can see lines in between lines, and displaying only half the amount of vertical lines (thus 1080i is actually showing 540 vertical lines and yes, 720p is showing more lines).

Contrast ratio?
Don't let this thing fool you, every company comes out with the contrast ratio they claimed it would be. There's no industry standard setting for this, they are just manipulating with their own figures. Trust your own eyes with this when buying a HDTV. Set all the TVs on normal mode and play a dark scenery video, look for which TV that you can see the most detail from (like the cloud in the dark sky, the water in the sea, the lightings from outside a building). In short, contrast is the ability to see through the dark items as being dark rather being black like nothing on display and the clarity/separation between dark and bright items.

Cables
This is a very long story, but I'm not going to say which cable/brand is the best like most A/V equipment sellers. For HDTV, your best choice is always DVI/HDMI, both send digital signals. A RM5 DVI/HDMI cable can perform just as good as Monster Cables (upward RM500) if the cable is less than 5m long. Other method of obtaining HD signals are 15-pin D-Sub (normally and wrongly known as VGA, in which VGA is actually meaning 640x480 resolution) and component cables (the Red, Green and Blue cable, but please don't mistaken it as RGB cable, both are very different). Both are analog signals, and this time, cable quality does make some different. You'd like gold plated cables for analog signals, and thicker ones if you are planning to get very long cables (more than 5m) as to reduce the signal loss. For other equipments like Astro (can only display 480i), your best bet is S-Video cable. This cable will cause no "bleeding" on the screen unlike the normally used composite (yellow) cable. "Bleeding" is especially easy to notice on red objects with a black background where you see the red colour coming crawling out like how you colour over the line on an art work.

What else?
Ever heard of Bravia, DNIe etc? Those are the processing engines for display much like your graphics card, so I'm not going to comment much on this but remember to get a more easily fixed ones. LCD/Plasma/DLP are all well known for lower durability compare to their CRT counterparts so you may want to do yourself a favour by getting a more easily fixed ones. My opinion on TV engines is that, Bravia is rank among the bottom of my satisfactory list along with lousy brands like Haier etc.
Another thing is the panel (also commonly called screen) which does make a big contribution to the picture quality. Another one of my personal comment is Sony's panel are as good as shit (they got it from Samsung by-product catalogue).

That's all I can tell now (I'm at work). I could go on days and days talking on this, but I'm afraid I'd get banned for this. Remember one thing, trust your eyes and do your own settings on the TV when testing them, and make sure all are of the same size and using the same type of cable when comparing each of them. If you are refused to do so, buy somewhere else. Finally, do yourself a favour by not buying Sony's TV, thay have nothing comparable for their price other than their design. Buy it and watch them for hours and their ridiculous gamma settings will give you eye sore. Allow me to say this, when you are buying any flat panels, you are looking for the least worse display unlike the perfectly fine but bulky and "unsexy" CRT.

hey guys. if i'm on a low budget (<rm1k), and cannot afford HD-Ready LCD TV for my PS3, would it be better for me to buy 22"-24" LCD monitor (DVI/HDMI input, HDCP) or is it a better to buy a HD-Ready CRT TV (with HDMI input).. in terms of picture quality, both should be he same rite since both are only HD-Ready, and not full HDTV. btw, is it still possible to buy brand new HD-Ready CRT from shops and how much do they cost?

I always have some space in my heart reserved for CRT. If you are using it solely for 360, PS3 or PC, then it all depends on the space occupied. If you are using it for something else like Astro, older consoles, CRT is your choice since it can display what they are meant to without compromising the PQ. The only problem is I can't find wide screen CRT locally (please let me know if anyone knows where to get one). For LCD monitor, look out for the resolution and make sure it's 1920x1200 so as to get the full out from your PS3.

different people different taste after all...me, having bought samsung series 4 very2 not satisfied.. i wish i bought other brand instead...

make sure when u buy your samsung lcd ask the seller to give you at least one week zero dead pixel guarantee.

i haven't experience other brand but this samsung for sure got ghosting effect.

other thing is, when i play games like alone in the dark or bioshock in dark scene areas, the colour looks like when you set your
pc to 8 bit colour.

Yep, although Samsung does make very good panels, their response time are pretty weak on lower-mid range, thus ghosting effects. However you could set it to game mode to improve it, but at the same time sacrificing something else like contrast etc. Some LCD manufacturers that are really good after several testings include LG (best for its price), Toshiba and Sharp. The rests are bearable to poor for gaming (although I'm impressed with Panasonic's scaling engine). Like I said earlier, you are looking for the least worst when you are buying flat panels, so don't expect it to be as good as good old CRT or true PC flat panel monitor (that's another discussion).

on specs samsung response time fast indeed, 6 ms... i only experience ghosting in dark areas...playing gears of war is perfect even
on dark areas like the place you got into where there's heavy rain and you need to find factory entrance.

one thing i still confuse...for x360, vga vs component.....

when i use component, the colours vibrant, picture very sharp but in dark areas/shadow it become too dark and you don't see much detail.

when i use vga(no hdmi), the colours washed out, picture blur..but in dark areas/shadow you can see a lot more detail.
setting the reference level to expanded mode improve the colour but still not as good as component and it still a bit blurry.

any suggestion? or is this normal?

Hmm.. let me think how to answer your question. You get RGB from from VGA (thus many manufacturers named it RGB input) and component has different colour ratio (lots of green and less blue & red). Technically, DVDs are set/designed/manufactured/optimized through component. But that doesn't mean that RGB is worse than component. It all depends on how good the TVs engine receive the input and translate it to the screen.

But since you said VGA has better contrast, I would suggest you to stick to it and set your resolution to 1280 x 768 on your 360 (if your TV is 1366 x 768 native). Don't worry too much regarding the colour, a lot of people think that vibrant colour + crisp brightness = great PQ, but in reality the best picture is always deeper and less vibrant after calibration.

One very important thing I forgot to mention is when you play on LCD, make sure the surrounding is bright enough, while the opposite for Plasmas (the darker the better). This is often a mistake to many people who try to set up a dark home theater with LCD. And if I assume you are using a 32" panel sit about 5~7 feet in front of it to get the best view (or 5 times the height of the screen).

i guess your fact is true because i once said to myself after playing around component/vga...i should use component
for dvd playback and vga for gaming. but that too much hassle.

i'm using 40" - la40a450...sit 7 feet from the screen, at this distance vga pq is sharp actually, but if i sit 5 feet from the screen i'll
start noticing the blurriness compare to component.

It may be your contrast is set too high.. and since you said some places too dark try lower the contrast and increase brightness until you someone beside you said ok. Don't rely on your eyes too much when adjusting as the setter may be "blinded" after a while staring on the TV. Just my personal opinion/experience, not scientifically proven tongue.gif

There's a reason why I don't put in any brand that's should be bought over the other. Although I said LG, Toshiba and Sharp better for gaming after testings conducted by myself, many people will disagree with me and think of other brand. Can't complain, it's what their eyes can see that's inportant for them to make their choices rather than my words. And why I typed so many words to explain is to help you what to look for/expect from a good TV. Who knows, may be even Sony is good for you in the end (albeit that will never happen to me)?

Agree with you. Each individual has their own preference. Some like rich colour, some dont. Some like natural PQ. Some has budget in mind and hope for best bang for money. Some with money to splurge, go for the best money cld buy.

Which is also why I've been avoiding Sony's BRAVIA ever since they switch over to Samsung panels. Although dead-pixels aren't as big as a problem on the BRAVIA, I'd rather play it safe and go for Sharp, LG or Pana instead.

Using Sharp 32" AQUOS (LC32A53M) with Sharp HDMI cable.
100Hz really good for Bluray.... Satisfied with the LCD.

In my point of view, I suggest you grab LC-32A53M instead of LC-32A33M for gaming purpose. Actually there are same but LC-32A53M with 100/120Hz Fine Motion Advanced Technology which better for next-gen consoles gaming.
