If you're in an electronics store and looking for a smaller TV to buy, let me start by saying that this TV won't jump out at you from on the shelves. If the circa-2004 design doesn't put you off then going deeper won't do anything to change your mind.
LG has had a pretty bad run this year with some great-looking but poorly-performing TVs, and the CS460 is unfortunately near the bottom of the pile. While a swivel stand and ergonomic remote are nice features at this price they can't save what is a truly undernourished TV. Poor colors, terrible black levels and minimal shadow detail means that I would recommend a third-tier brand offering like TCL before I did this particular TV.
If you have $300 to spend on a 32-inch then don't muck around, head straight towards the 'S' section of your local electronics dealer (they are alphabetical right?) and pick up the Samsung EH4000.
