A 32" HDTV is down-right tiny. I'm nor surprised you have a hard time reading the menu text from a comfortable distance. Heck, I've got a 46" set it takes some "work" for me to read it from a reasonable distance. (Though I do have 20/30 vision with glasses.)
On the set:
The "jump to warp" sequence we see from inside the ship a couple of times in this season does look nice and good. Wish it was used more in the series but I think it was only used three times.
