It depends on your needs really. I enjoy the sharpest piture. So I choose DLP tlevisions. They have a downside. They are about 13' thick. But the resolutuion is almost twice as good as an LCD. A LCD gives you excellent picture quality, and is very thin. Averages about 4". You want a television that has a refresh rate of 120hz or higher. Sony just introduced a model that has a 240hz refresh rate. This is advantagous for sports fans becuse the refresh rate is critical. If it has less than 120 hz then the faster the oblect moves on the screen, there will be a little blur. Any 1080p HD television is going to give you a superb picture. The brand is purely a loyalty issue. Sony Bravia LCD's seem to have a very low rate of problems. And they are very affordable. I enjoy DLP better because I am more into watching movies, and they have the purest colr/picture with no possability of "burn in" Plasma is the WORST choice. They are prctically unserviceable. Or, they cost too much to service. Sometimes itis cheaper to buy a new plasma than to have one repaired. The only draw back on my DLP is that I have to replace the bulb at about 100.00 every 4,000 hours of viewing. Dlp's are also famous for having color wheel issues. After a copule of years they will start to make a metallic screech, or hum. But If you purchase a 5 year warranty they get replaced for free. As long as you buy a 1080p TV with a 120hz refresh rate or higher, you will be VERY satisfied. And you will have the latest in technology.

Is the 2005 model of this TV a high def?

Judging from the specifications from the manufacturer I would say this particular TV does not have HDMI connectivity. The listed input modes are S-Vid, Composite, Component, Tuner, DVI, and RS232. None of those listed inputs have High Definition capacity to the best of my knowledge, and the last two are most commonly used to hook Desktops and Laptops up to a television. HDTV Solutions

There is no Cable hook up on the back for TV! SO what is the best way to see tv and cables needed?

The best way to see tv from a high definition cable box on this unit is connect with a component cable. A component cable is green, blue, and red. That is the video portion. The audio portion of this cable is white and red. The white and red goes all the way to the left of the plug in places.

The picture on my new 32" does fill the screen. What should I do to correct this problem?

I assume you have pressed the zoom button on the remote control that came with the tv. If you have a cable box or satellite tv box press the # button or hd zoom button or aspect button or format button on that remote control. If you are connecting a high definition cable box or satellite tv box to this television make sure that the high definition cables are connected to the right high definition inputs on the television and that the television is switched over to the right corresponding input. If all else fails and this is just happening on one hd channel it is the hd channel.

The sharpness of your picture is dependent on the resolution your TV and device(s) are capable of producing. This TV is capable of showing video in resolutions up to 1080i. 1080i is a good quality of video, so the lack of clarity in your picture is likely being caused by your video source. Basically, the principal of Garbage In, Garbage Out applies here. If your video source is low resolution, even the best TV won't be able to produce a clear picture from it. If you're using VHS and standard definition cable, switch to Blu-Ray and ask your cable provider about high definition tv. Make sure you're using the proper cables (ie., HDMI) as older types such as composite can't support high definition video. Once again, your TV wont polish any poop for you, but play some decent quality video through it and you should notice a world of difference.

Tv picture looks grainy like it was shot on video

well most lcd and plasma tv's above 36" will look grainy on standard definition because they are made for high definition so if you do not receive a high definition signal to your tv then that would most likely be the problem

How to get a high definition Picture??

Okay - it is a high def 720p but you have to use the HDMI inputs for High Definition... also, using the LCD as a computer monitor the best setting is 1280 x 768 - standard p&p monitor driver for Win XP or Vista (or Win 7 Beta). The HDMI slots are on the left side and are small rectangular slots about 1" long.

In order to get true high definition quality, you would want a high definition source. There really is not much else you can add to make your picture clearer, provided you have it hooked up with the best type of cables possible.

Changing Screen Size on Samsung HP-R4272

you must not have the correct picture settings in the cable box, as although they are not HD they will still be widescreen, so check both tv and box for picture settings.
