    I was planning on getting a 40" le40m86 Samsung lcd next month but I heard about the new range that is supposed to be out next month. I see that the new 40" 1080p model has a better spec. But is it worth waiting for? Also, when it says March, does that mean just the US or is it Europe aswell?
    Cheers.

    Since there is talk about 120Hz (all the names does not corresond to european ones) in the gizmodo news, I think this Sammy's are supposed for US market only.

    Let somebody correct me, if i'm mistaken.

    Regards, TomazO!!

    Hopefully Samsung will announce a 40" and 46" version of the 52" F96 with the dimmed back light. The 40" version of the F96 is what I am waiting for, they have it in the USA but they didnt want to over shadow the M86/87 and the F86 range so they only did the F96 in 52".

    Fingers crossed that at cebit in early march Samsung announce a new range of 40" lcd's.

    The 40" F96 has got to be the one worth waiting for.However according to the C|NET review on the 52" the LED backlighting does create some of its own problems.

    That set Still got an "Excellent" rating.

    I am considering this myself.I have no illusions that its going to be cheap though!

    that is an australian site so doubt you will see these models in europe or at leats they will be called something different like LEA...

    the last release of LCD's in UK were around April/May 07 so likely we migth see 1 or 2 new models around this time again in 08

    well I think the F86 is a better choice than M87 (better specs) as it came out in Sept.
    but the new range which is coming out in March-April would be the one in 65" & not in 40" as the F86 just came out.
