This is my recent addition in series of upgradation to my personal HT. In short, the panel is HD ready, 30000:1 dynamic contrast, 500w with 8 speakers, usb plug n play and handful of input options. My first look at the set in showroom for its spectacular sound followed by PQ comparison with Samsung 32A450 (at lesser price) under Tatasky signal, made me to jump into conclusion without any hesitation. Back in home, the panel performs superb even with normal RF cable signal, may be because of XD and other NR options available. Playing photos, music and divx from USB is just child play. Only drawback here is the user has no choice of adjusting panel brightness, contrast and color etc when USB mode is playing. RED strips all over the panel making it JAZZ may look odd to few, but when one gets the sound from the set with amazing 8 speakers, he just forgets all that look etc. Component with 480p from my pioneer rocks on the panel and even RGB from Bigtv's STB also is excellent to watch. Viewing angle is decent and wall mounting is better option for this light weight panel. I didn't have the option of looking at ONIDA XARIA with 400W, which may be comparable on sound front to this model. Another 32inch series under JAZZ can be the option for some who are specific for full HD. The sliding speakers as advertised are only for the 42inch model and not there even in full hd 32inch model. Hope my exp. will help the fellow members in including this super performer in their list, when they watch out in the nearest showroom.
