Default Toshiba vs LG LCD TV

Ok I'm looking for a bit of advice. What would be the better TV. The Regza 32hl67u or the LG 42lc2d? Now screen size aside I'm not sure which TV is better. Any advice would be great.

I have a 37" Regza in the bedroom and it's a really solid TV. I did a lot of research before buying it and it was the best-reviewed TV in it's size and price range. I don't have any experience with LG, but I can strongly recommend a Toshiba display.

this isn't about tosh hates bd,its about making the old dollars.
sooner or later tosh will be forced to make bd players.btw one of there chips is in the ps3,so if you own a ps3 i guess you ought to burn it

I bought a 1080p Regza for my bedroom ( AND I HATED THAT TV!!! )

1) You can only change one of the settings.

2) If you do not have HD TV in your room, than the TV looks like CRAP!

3) Took it back A.S.A.P and bought the KDL - W4100 ( MUCH BETTER )( IMO )


And I really don't know anything on the LG.

I have a an LG and its a very solid set. I looked at a Toshiba right beside it when I purchased it and I didn't really like the Toshiba. The colors weren't accurate at all and veered towards green. It had a slightly better black level than my LG, but at a cost. There was definite crush in the shadows and the overall picture wasn't quite as sharp. With all of this said, I purchased my set over a year ago so the newer models are probably improved, and you probably should compare them for yourself to see which picture you like best. Also, in terms of reliability LG came in way ahead of Toshiba in the latest PC World survey. You can look HERE for a breakdown of various brands' reliability. Aside from that, if the sets are roughly the same price I would want the larger of the two unless the smaller turned out to have a much better picture, and I seriously doubt that it would.

Actually, I compared them in a dimly lit Circuit City, and yes I know that most stores aren't dimly lit, but this one was. Anyway, I was able to do some adjustments for a good comparison. There were several other tv's right beside these two including a couple of Samsung's, a Sony, a JVC, and a Panasonic plasma. This made for a real good comparison. The JVC easily had the lightest blacks, but a good picture nevertheless. It was sharp with very good color accuracy. The Toshiba definitely had a slight green push, and checking reviews on some of their sets confirmed that this isn't just an issue with that particular model. The black level was slightly better than the LG and much better than the JVC. Detail in darker areas was not as apparent as it was in any other set that was around it which was a deal breaker for me. Of course the Sammy, Sony and Panny were the better of all of the sets. The Sony and Panny were the closest in all aspects and when standing at about 12-15ft away you could easily see that the Panny had the best black level. All of these tv's were 42" by the way. Keep in mind that there are some good Toshiba models out there so this is not a blanket assessment which is why I said that you should compare both of the models you are looking at side by side for a true assessment of those particular models. This year's models are probably much improved over last year's.
