NEW Samsung R7 Range - Out now

Just so people do not get confused with the thread about the "NEW" Samsung LCDs, there is an even "NEW-ER" range out in April 2006:


And YES that are availiable in Black.


New styling: check. Fancy speaker setups: check. Why else should we consider upgrading to the R7 range? Well, the response time of the LCD panels has been improved to 6ms, the perceived contrast ratio is a boastful 5,000:1, and there's a new 'game' picture setting that has been calibrated to make the most of your Xbox 360 experience. However, you may be spoiled for choice. There's a plethora of new LCD, plasma and rear-pro TVs heading our way from Samsung, and when Crave returns to British soil we'll pursue them relentlessly on your behalf.

A nice video: HERE

I hope they arrive soon :) I personally am holding out for the 40" version in black.


Details on the different designs:

Oh yes for the colors:

R71B = Blue (bottom) + Black (casing)
R72B = Silver + Black
R73BD = Blue + Black + DVB - T tuner
R74BD = Silver + Black + DVB - T tuner
R71W = White

71, 72, 74 is for the design.

B means Black
W means White
D means digital tuner.

To round up:

-Dynamic contrast isnt an issue (it turns off in movie mode)

-Need to buy 32" version or above for latest panel technology (SPVA)

-Lots of R7x models but not too difficult to work out differences due to cosmetic/size/digital tuner

-M61 is very similar to the R7x however R7x is slightly better due to more colors.

-1 HDMI for the R7x

-2 HDMI for the later released M7x series

-also M7x is to have motion blur software where as R7x doesnt (to name another difference)

Im assuming your tv is broken. Is it out of warranty? Im assuming it hasnt always been like that?

It has three and a half years. This started one year ago (after the warranty period), and is getting worse...
