Most of us would rather have a 65-inch TV than a 32-inch one. However, reality often gets in the way.
If you’re looking for a second bedroom TV or just don’t have much room in your home, a 32-inch set can still be the best choice. Even in 2018.
There are no ultra-high-end 32-inch TVs. You won’t find any with OLED panels or 4K resolution, but you don’t have to trade away the basics either.
Unless you’re shopping with a rock-bottom budget, you can get a model with 1080p resolution, great image quality and smart TV. Some even offer newer features like HDR.

Sure, the UN32M5300 doesn’t have the most connections in the world, with just two HDMIs. But hey, the small compromises are absolutely worth it.
The LG 32LJ610V is a bit on the ugly side by 32-inch TV standards, and it uses an IPS panel, making it a bad option for dark room environments. IPS TVs have great viewing angles, but worse contrast than ones with VA panels.
However, its picture is bright enough to stand out in light rooms, and best of all its webOS smart TV system makes it fantastically easy to use. Two out of three isn’t so bad, right?
