    Well currently i have a 23.5 W+17.5 H Sharp LCDTV. But how big is a 32"?
    And review on:
    Digital Lifestyle 32" HD LCDTV-

    Samsung 32" Jasmine HD LCDTV-
    http://www.target.com/Samsung-Jasmine-LCD-...#R33XV4RNRA3DLU

    And can anyone recommend a TV stand?
    H: About 20"~25" Anywhere between. And if its 1" off, still show.
    W: 30" max. No where over. Less can do but not too small.

    And, will a 32" fit if there is 30" of space?(W)

    I do not care about the weight. Nor the Weight limit. Since im going with a Flat Panel and isnt that heavy IMO.
    And it would be better/good if there was a shelf on the TV Stand. I dont really care about the color but if there are choices,
    Black or Beige will do.

    Price Range for TV Stand- $100~$200 Tops. Im not spending over $250+ for a TV Stand.

    If you have a better thought of a Flat Panel TV, then please post the:
    H,W. If possible, the W of the TV. No more then 30".

    So yea, will a 32" HD LCDTV fit into a space 30"?

    Thanks in advice~

    When you buy a TV, I notice it shrink

    I got a 46" Sony LCD, then it was big for a few weeks but then it "shrinks..." now it looks as big as my old set...

    Televisions don't shrink [​IMG]

    My granny has a 60" Samsung TV, it doesn't shrink!

    Go with the Samsung, good quality I say [​IMG]

    To see if the TV's will fit into your unit check the dimensions on the specs sites.

    As for recommendations I recommend the Panasonic 32" LCD. Whatever the current model is in the US.

    When I went looking at the TV's in the stores the Panasonic crapped all over the other brands including the Samsung. The Samsung had massive image delay (read blurring) issues.

    You could try doing the maths.

    16:9 aspect ratio, 32" diagonal. + ~1-2" on all sides for bezel.

    It all depends on your place. If you put a 32" in a small apartment, then it will feel big. However, if you put it in a medium to large sized house, it will be a little small. My uncle has a 60" TV in his house, it's not that big after a while...
