Lg 76cm Super Slim Crt Tv With Inbuilt Hd Tuner - 32fs4d

Recommended Posts

LG 32fs4d

76cm Super Slim Crt Tv With Inbuilt Hd Tuner

below: scan of lg catalodge for this tv model

http://img176.imageshack.us/img176/2035/lg...im32fs4dsc9.jpg

also 1080i compatible according to "the good guys" catalodge

● 76cm (32")

● Super slim (395mm depth)

● In-built HD Tuner

● 1080i combatible

● New XD Engine

● Progressive Scan ● Sound Output 10W X 2 (AVL, SRS)

● Real Stereo ● Teletext ● Child Lock ● Sleep Timer

● HDMI / Component(2) / AV Input / S-Video Input ● Weight : 53Kg

● Dimension(WxDxH) : 898 X 403.5 X 575(mm) ● Barcode : 8801031463329

price around $1299 AU

The things that stick out for me are the In-built HD Tuner, 1080i combatible and HDMI input

Just wondering if anyone has the set and what they think of it?

Is there any advantages over having an LCD or Plasma over a CRT?

And does anyone know if this set has HDCP?

Looks like a nice set. Bought the only advantage of LCD/Plasmas is that they can go to much larger screen sizes (40"+) and they are slim. A good CRT will still beat a similarly priced LCD/Plasma for PQ (Although that distinction is a lot more debatable these days) The LGE website has no mention of the sets so i don't know if when its really going to appear. One caveat I'd mention is I assume the TV has a standard analogue RF connection? So you can add a STB or PVR if you want.

100Hz I wonder ?

wonder if it down-scales 1080i > 576P like the Samsung slimline CRT ?

I just saw this in the JB HiFi catalogue too. Allmost want one, except I dont like the slimline crts because of the geometry issues. If they could fix those problems then I would be sold on this TV as I prefer the colour and contrast of CRT and I think this is the only CRT with HDMI in Australia.

$1294

On the same page is the version without HD Tuner or HDMI for $997, so I feel for only an extra $300 this is a good deal.

I just picked one of these up from Betta Electrical for $1100 cash.

Initial comments:

  • Beautiful Picture
  • Built-in Tuner works well
  • Very friendly and inituitive GUI
  • Good set of inputs (2 component plus HDMI = awesome)
  • Xbox 360 at 1080i - F*&% yeah!
  • Heavy (53kg)

My only gripe is that you cannot delete a digital channel, only skip it (unless you manually scan for all channels). Other than that I'd say it's a fine bit of kit.

Considering Toshiba (Castel) want about $2000 for basically the same set (only 20kg heavier) I think this is a good price for a great TV set.

went to hn today 3pm got the sales guy down to $1100 cash,waiting for stock to come in just to see for myself . the only thing i could compare it to was samsung knew 81cm lcd (la32r71bdx) for quality, but $1000 price differance is hard to justify.

If anyone lives near Rockhampton I can sell them a LG Lafinion82W 76cm 16months old for $600.

I agree CRT PQ is fantastic, I just got a LG 42PC1DG plasma, lovely but not as good as the CRT

Just a quick update...

I've noticed a problem with audio sync - only while watching HD broadcasts. EG Rockwiz on SBS last night, or the Peter Brock special on Prime this evening.

It seems it occurs with all HD broadcasts. I'm not incredibly bothered by it at this stage, and I plan to buy the Topfield HD PVR when it comes out, but it is annoying nonetheless.

Does anyone else who owns of of these sets have this problem?

Any updates? I'm keen at looking at one of these, or the equivalent Samsung (which doesn't have HD tuner).

If I understand you correctly, the audio sync is only a problem on programs in true HD, not just all 'HD' channels?

Is there any problems on the SD channels?

Is the picture quality improved on the HD channels vs SD channels?

Does any onscreen display information indicate what resolution the tuner is giving you? There are reports of LG HD tuners down-converting signals in their 'HD' plasmas.

Purchased 1 of these on Sunday and have the same problem.

I contacted LG's customer service line (1800 643 156) and they said they know of the problem. Since it has been less than a week since my purchase, they advised me to take it back to the store and exchange it for a new set.

I'm waiting now for a hand to load it (they are heavy little b's), and I'll let you know how I got on.

Also I gave this web page address to their customer service operator, so I'd suggest anyone having problems contact them.

If inbuilt HD tuner is a selling point for anyone, I would read this first.

LG's HD tuners are dodgy to say the least.

WHY POINT OUT A FAULT YOU HAVE WITH a tuner in a panel when this comment / post is about a CRT? Are you informed enough to let us know this is the exact same internal tuner or is it sheer speculation. Hey i'm no LG fanboy but give this unit its credit, it provides what most mum and dads need to join the digital world with an all in one unit that had HDMI input.

This is a CRT with a HDMI input. Does anybody realise the ramifications of this....

Let me ask - is this input HDCP compatible....?

A very interesting device (sony US has built CRT's with DVI inputs but we haven't been lucky enough).

Samsung CRT has the same, only doesn't have a inbuilt HD tuner.

Samsung Widescreen CRT

Go on Nobby, put me out of my misery. What's the ramifications of this?

Can anyone else describe the actual audio sync fault a bit more. Is it just with HD programming, or all digital programs?

Hey i'm no LG fanboy but give this unit its credit, it provides what most mum and dads need to join the digital world with an all in one unit that had HDMI input.

I can just see the conversation now:

Me: how do you like the world of digital TV mum. Isn't it great.

Mum: the picture is nice but I liked my old TV, where the sound use to come out of their mouths..

Me: ... :blink:

Initially it was just the HD channels. I'm not sure how to measure the difference, but it was probably about 0.2 - 0.4 seconds out.

I took mine back today after the SD channels started getting out of sync also. The guy in the store was very surprised that such a new model would have this flaw, but I told him about this forum and how others had the same problem. I was able to get a full refund, which is good because I believe a replacement would have had the same problem.

I'm loathe to start looking at LCD sets, so my plan now is to find a similar HD CRT, with no built-in tuner, that does 100hz, and that will complement my Topfield HD PVR (when I can get my hands on one). :blink:
