Size vs quality? Plz help me choose 32" or 27".

I am on a budget and my TV just broke so I need a quick fix. I cant spend very much yet and my budget it $300. I have narrowed it down to a...

Samsung DynaFlat 27"

and this Sharp 32" which outpost have at a great price which when shipped comes to about the same price.

I'd say if quality is important to you, but you can't settle on quality because of the size... just wait and save until you have the money to get both. I didn't want to sacrifice the actual screen height of my 32" flat screen 4:3 tube TV when buying a widescreen TV that was HDTV. So I had to wait until I could afford a 42" widescreen HD TV.

Quality. Definately. I'd go with the flat tube CRT (Samsung).

I had to make the same choice a couple years ago and got a flat-tube 20" CRT. While small, I definately was glad I went with the nicer picture. And now my new 32" LCD looks simply HUGE compared to the 20" (another advantage, in a way).

Thanks all, so I guess you all would take quality over size.

Looks good but I may stick with the Dynaflat because it got more favorable reviews.
