Hi edge2002,

When buying flat panel TV, the 3S (Sharp, Sony, Samsung) are no doubt still the market leaders nowadays.

LC32D30M-W seems to be an entry level which also cost reasonably. If you are not so demanding and use it to watch normal TV only, it should fit to your need.

It is HD Ready, which mean not true HD. However, you only need HD when you watch BlueRay disc or HD-DVD. Otherwise, the HD Ready feature is more than enough, especially when watching normal TV or Astro.

It has a comparatively low contrast ratio, but that is enough to watch normal TV or Astro. You might need a higher contrast ratio if you want to play 3D video games or watch high quality DVD/BlueRay movies.

It has a PC connector, so you can connect it to your laptop and make it a big monitor screen too.
