LGs 32-inch 32LG30 is an appealing value for a good-looking LCD TV with respectable performance, but the competition may tempt you more...

Nice price
Solid performance
Swivel base
Small screen size makes artifacts less noticeable than they would be on a larger set
Input labeling lets you select "Xbox 360" instead of "HDMI 1
Some jagged-edge artifacts with both SD and HD material
Audio output may not be loud enough for some environments
Some added noise in skin tones
Doesnt smooth out jaggies the way many larger sets can
