    Thanks for the article, convinced the missus to get the Sony for when she is watching her stuff and I need to play or watch Naruto.


    That Samsung 32″ at Makro shows up as R3699 on the website!

    The Samsung 32EH5000 seems to be 50Hz on most websites, even though some say it is 100Hz. It may be a confusion with the 100 CMR, which is not the same as 100Hz refresh rate. I would like some clarification regarding that. Thanks.
