I own an Emerson 32 inch hdtv which I love. I'm about to move in to a new place though and will be putting my current hdtv in the bedroom. I'm shopping for a new one for the living room. my emerson is a nice tv... it's a 720p tv but downscaled 1080i looks good on it. But i'm looking for a more true 1080 tv. 1080p isnt a must but would be cool. I do want a 32 inch again. I'm a gamer so bigger tv's just never look as good when playing games. I've always thought the 32 inch or smaller looks brighter and better when playing games. I've read that professional game programmers don't use over 32 inches either for the same reason. But anyway... 32 inches im dead set on and 1080 im dead set on. The highest refresh rate possible would be nice. Atleast 2 hdmi inputs. I have directv HD also. Right now I'm looking at a sony but im wondering if its overpriced and I could get just as good for less? I'm willing to spend around 1500... maybe more if it's got something that impresses me. Just asking you guys opinion. I also have a playstation 3 and play a lot of bluray movies if that helps any.

Nothing in 32 is 1080p, only 1080p start at 42", might change but for now that's how it is.
Check Costco and Sam's club, I'm getting this 32 soon: http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=354180

There are 32" 1080P sets.
Sharp has some 1080P 32" LCD TV's. Some are aimed at gamers.

Sharp has introduced a new Full HD 1080p AQUOS series crafted specifically for video game enthusiasts, the GP1U series, available in 32- and 37-inch screen sizes. These new models include special features that enhance the game-playing experience, including a “game mode” which optimizes the picture quality for game-playing and a custom-designed remote control that allows the user to quickly “jump” into the game mode and access the side-placed terminals for easy connections to video games. The game mode provides a newly developed “Vyper Drive” feature, which reduces lag time between the game console and the TV to be virtually imperceptible. The 32-inch panel boasts an incredible 10,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio, and the 37-inch an 8500:1, for deep blacks and crisp picture quality; enhanced Fine Motion video circuitry for faster pixel response time of 6ms; and wide viewing angles of 176 degrees, so users can view the television from virtually anywhere in the room. They also include Sharp’s proprietary 4-wavelength backlight system that provides a wider color spectrum to achieve deeper, more vivid reds than was previously possible. Additionally, both of the GP1U models include three HDMI™ inputs (with one on the side) as well as two HD component terminals (one on the side), all of which are compatible with 1080p signals from the latest video game devices. Both units in the series feature Full HD 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution and 10Wx2 audio for an unparalleled high-definition viewing and listening experience. These models are available in a piano black finish with detachable bottom speakers and include a detachable table stand.
