My parents are looking for a TV in the 32" range. Size is limited because they want to put in in a cabinet they already have. I believe the cabinet width is 35", but I have to verify.

They were looking at a Samsung but I found a slightly better Samsung

I haven't kept up with TV's though. I know 120Mhz is preferably, but smaller TV's all seem to be 60 still. How about the response time. How low is needed to get rid of motion blur, as I expect sports will be watched on the TV.

Any TV suggestions in this size would be helpful too. I believe they want to keep it under $500.

I have 120hz and I still notice some motion blurr.

I would lean towards a Sammy or Sony myself.

You may not notice blurring as much on a smaller TV BTW. Have a good look at the demos in the showroom with some action sports/movies and see if you can get away with the less expensive 60hz. People also say sometimes that 1080 is not necessary on sets under 40".

Cabinet is 34" across that the TV will go in. I think it's going to be 60hz by default for this size TV. I'm not sure what ms response time they'll need. I agree with 720P. No need for 1080 on something that size.

Jason, the 460 which you linked should be fine, but for about $100 less the Vizio VO320E could also be considered. It was top-rated in the latest Consumer Reports tests in the 32" category.
