Default Is this a good choice?... and Hi :)

Hi.

Y'all seem like a very helpful bunch so I thought I'd try to take advantage of your knowledge. I plan to replace my old clunker tv with a nice sleek flatscreen.

The way I have it set up now I'm actually very close, 4 to 5 feet or so. I might set up the new one differently but the viewing distance probably wouldn't be much more than that.

I'll probably be watching mostly tv shows and movies, and also plan to use it with a playstation3, which I'll also be using as a blue ray player.

I should be getting HD service from cable provider. But I assume not everything comes in HD, so I'll probably be watching a fair amount of SD too.

I'm probably leaning towards best bang for my buck. I'm giving myself about a $500 ceiling.

I'd prefer a display with a wider viewing angle.

Most of the viewing will be done at night.

So anyway I'm leaning towards the Toshiba 32E200U. The 32" might be overkill for such a small space, but I kinda wanted the 1080p and Toshiba doesn't make a smaller set with that resolution. But I thought I'd check in here in case there's something I haven't thought of.

Go for it. That be a fine choice in that size and price range. You probably won't notice the 1080P in that size - but you certainly would question yourself if you didn't go for the 1080p. Go for it.

Thanks!

I probably wouldn't have made the higher resolution a requirement except that I might be watching the thing pretty close up.

Two more quick questions:

Anyone have any recommendations for online vendors. I saw the one for ClevelandPlasma and Vanns, but it's on order at Vanns and Cleveland doesn't sell that model. Was gonna go with Amazon, but since I'm in state I'll cough up an extra 50 for tax if I do.

Also any tips on mounting flatscreens in a corner?

Thanks.

You can get an articulating mount, but make sure you block the wall for support.

Thanks!

I'm now kind of leaning towards the 26" version. 720p, but it might make more sense. Plus they have it in stock.

You know what. I misread the size. Blocking is not necessary with that size.

Ah, thanks again. Think I'm going with the 32" again. Found it in stock at Crutchfield.
