I'm looking at buying an HD tube TV. Currently I'm looking at this 32" Panasonic and the 30" widescreen slimfit Samsung. I've heard that the Samsung may have some bowing issues, although the Samsung is capable of 1080i and 720p, whereas the Panasonic can do 1080i, but only 480p. Can anyone with any experience with either of these two TVs offer any opinions on which is superior and why?
Panasonic is nowhere near the company they used to be these days. I went to CC to look at a Panasonic widescreen TV, the 4:3 Samsung next to it showed at least an inch more on the sides on a widescreen HDTV feed than the Panasonic TV did, pathetic. Panasonic products are cheaply built nowadays, not what they used to be. The 4:3 TVs use a Samsung picture tube, I haven't seen inside a widscreen. Everyone here should know what I think of Samtrash by now.
