Post Help! Trying To Get A 32inch Monirtor! :D

Hey guys!
Lately, i have been planning to build my first ever PC. I have a PC already but i never really built one from scratch. Along with my build i want to get a 32 inch tv mounted on my wall. Sure, its not that big but its big enough when i plan on being so close to it. What im looking for is this:

Price Range: 200-300 US Dollars. Please No more than 400. 300 Dollars is already enough.
A 3D ready monitor if POSSIBLE. If not, it is okay.
Must have 1080p resolution.
Able to be mounted on a wall.
More than 1 HDMI port.
32 Inch.

Big thanks guys!

You're not going to find a 1080p 3D 32" LCD Monitor/TV for that price, at least not in canada anyways. You may be able to find something cheaper on black friday, but beyond that it not really possible. Wall mounts alone are another 100$ depending on where you buy them from.

Okay lets forget about the 3D Is it possible to find a good 32 inch/1080p monitor for 400?

Yes, I purchased a Phillips 32 inch 1080p with 3 HDMI ports for $299. It came to about $375 all in.

It's doable -- simply Google 32-inch 1080p TV and you'll be able to find candidates.

With the early adopter/enthusiast consumer demanding larger and larger TVs, the prices for the mainstream sizes around 32 inches have dropped.

I actually came to a thought that even 32 inch would be too big. You see, Id be rather close to the monitor so i think my best choice is 27 inch. Having said that, what is the very best option for a 27 inch monitor? That i can mount on a wall of course

This thread got me curious so I checked out Future Shop as it best represents the consumer mainstream in Canada.

What is it with 32" TVs? There are lots of 22-24" and 40-42" 1080p TVs but 32" models are almost always 720p. What 1080p 32" TVs are listed cost more than some 40" LCD TVs.

Strange indeed.

I understand the topic says 32 inch but now im looking for 27 inch :P. I'd literally be about 1-1.5 feet from the screen. I cant stand it if the screen is too big.

Best Buy has more selection in the smaller sizes than Futer.

I'd probably look at this:

Panasonic VIERA 32" 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV (TCL32E3) : 30" - 39" LED TVs - Best Buy Canada

There are a lot of 32" HDTVs, but many suffer from input lag and make your fast PC feel slow. Buying a TV as a monitor these days is actually tougher than it seems.

This one is probably a great TV/monitor combo, and some guys on AVSforums think it's probably the best "monitor" at this size outside of the older LG 32LD450 screens. Might be a bit pricey at $499.99 but it is probably worth it.
