    In all honesty none of the tvs your looking at our the best quality. But thats why they are cheap which I assume is what your looking for.

    save up a little more and get a samsung (lnt3253h) or a sony (kdl32s3000). You will be a lot happier with either one.

    Buddy has an olevia and it looks nice, I have looked at the vizios at walmart though and they also look pretty nice. Your best bet would be to just go look at them if possible.

    Yeah. If possible try to see what they look like with standard definition programing. Go for the one that looks better in standard def because they are both gonna look good in high def.

    Before I bought my LCD a year ago, I went and looked at all of my options and the store that had them was Bestbuy. I took a DVD in and told them i was interested in these 3 tvs and I want to see this DVD on this dvd player on each of them.

    At first they were like meh but then they realized it could be a big sale so they did hook each up. After about an hour and a half I knew which I wanted and I said alright well i have to look around a bit more and I think they about killed me.

    Then I ordered offline and saved several hundred $$$

    My Olevia looks great, and I've had it for nearly a year now with absolutely no problems. I have the 37" LCD...

    Olevia gets my vote.

    vizio gets my vote. I have a 37" vizio and I can't find many problems with it. while I relize that it's not the best tv in the world it does a great job. many hd tv's that I have seen suck at upconverting even some of the priceier ones, but the vizio does alot better job of it. also the vizio has a special feature with the screen that if a pixel dies it goes black instead of bright green so it is alot less noticiable if one is dead or dies unless you are looking at a blank white screen with a magnifing glass. Also I have heard really good things about vizio coustumer service.

    Just know that once your manufacturer warranty runs out nobody (including vizio) will touch it.
