Naw, I wasn't picking on you or anything, so don't take it that way. Anyway, while ideally, you'd step up to a Samsung, if you can't spend the cash to do that, I'd go with a Westinghouse. It's probably the best thing at a comparable price.

A TV working isn't necessarily indicative of how good it is, though. I mean, you should expect an electronic device like a TV to work for a number of years... why not look for something like... quality?

Well then, ok.Let me see if there is samsung around that price, 550$, by the way there was also a 32 inch Vizio for around 650$ also at walmart, I expect the vizio to be better right?But how much, is the question, will look into the model number and do a search online.Are Vizio's better than Samsung's or Westinghouse's, I know Westinghouse has a great reputation for quality in hdtv's!

Just get a Sony HDTV and be done with it. Sony's are the best IMO and you know what you're getting even though you are spending more money for that quality. I wouldn't get a Samsung as I have seen three people have to have them replaced within a year. If you can't get a Sony then look for a Sharp, but those are the only two I recommend.

Ideally, Sony or Sharp. Samsung's reliability seems to have gotten better though.

Is it native or dynamic contrast ratio?
