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.

spoonjaffa said: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)
