Postby ruderacer on Sun Mar 07, 2004 3:21 pm

I looking at a new TV and have come with two choices. The Toshiba Flat 27" and the Toshiba regular 32" and was wondering if anyone has had any experience with any of these two? TIA

Get the flat one. I have a Sony WEGA and have never looked back.

Price difference? Is the flat HD ready? How far away from the TV will you be sitting. All of these make a difference before I can give my opinion.

Depends what you're watching. I prefer flat for Jerry Springer and round for Ricki Lake.

Widescreen for autoracing and 4:3 for basketball.

LOL!

I just bought one of those Sony Flatscreen WEGA 27" deals. I saw it side by side with a Philips flatty, RCA flatty and JVC flatty...the pic on the Sony looked to be the most "rich".

Something you might look into...I heard that some Sumsung units can be "hacked" via hidden code to be HDTV. Apparently those units are built to do it but not enabled (same unit sold under a different model number with HDTV ENABLED I guess.). I have no idea where to find more 411 on it. Sorry. :-?

I asked around about it. SUPPOSEDLY, Samsungs TXN2745 is hackable via the service menu which can be accessed via code entered on the remote (Mute, 1, 8, 2 and Power On). It also keeps in memory somehow, if the code has been entered. I guess it voids your warranty if you enter the code. That's just what I heard & read. *shrug*

I don't know if the tubes are different here, but a couple of friends of mine have Sony WEGA TVs (a 28" w/s and 32" w/s) and the pictures on them are awful. The geometry is shot, the colour balance unrealistic and the picture flat. Dreadful TVs.

I have a Panasonic 36" w/s and the picture is awesome by comparison. The only weakness is the quality of the RGB (component) inputs; these seem a bit less clear than they should be.

Well folks, thanks so much for all your inputs. I decided and I bought the Toshiba 27AF44 (flat screen).

Slim, this one has the 16:9 and 4:3 choice of screens. But no HDTV. I'll get that when I go for a bigger size.

Again, thanks so much and you all take care.
