    Hi,

    I'm trying to decide between these 2 models and hoping to get some insightful feedback from anybody out there... There's not much info online (I guess these models are new), here's what I could find:

    About LG RZ-32LZ50:
    LG-France page http://fr.lge.com/prodmodeldetail.do?actType=search&page=1&modelCategoryId=0102& categoryId=0102&parentId=01&modelCodeDisplay=RZ32LZ50&model=12#

    PDF product sheet in french: http://fr.lge.com/filedown.do?filepath=/download/product/0102/RZ32LZ50/&filename =RZ32LZ50.pdf

    About Samsung LE-32A41B:
    Samsung-Germany page http://av.samsung.de/print_article.asp?artid=FF209D41-D025-4D15-A9BE-51DC19BB9F3 C

    In English at Pixmania http://www.pixmania.co.uk/uk/uk/57944/art/samsung/lcd-16-9-monitor-le-32a41.html #fichetechnique

    Their price is about the same (between 2,300 and 2,500 Euro) The major technical highlights/differences I see between both are:
    - Resolution: Both sets 1366x768
    - Luminance: Both sets 500 cd/m2
    - Progressive scan: Both sets feature it.
    - Sound: 2x10w Nicam/A2 in both sets.
    - PC-input: Present in both sets
    - Contrast: Samsung = 600:1, LG = 500:1
    - Response time: Samsung = under 16ms, LG = 18ms
    - Viewing angle: LG = 176º, Samsung = 170º
    - Teletext: Samsung = 200 pages, LG = 10 pages
    - Digital input: Samsung = DVI w/ HDCP, LG = DVI-I (not sure what the difference is here)
    - Image processing: Samsung = DNIe 3 (Digital Natural Image Engine), LG = XD Engine & Faroudja DCDi

    From the technical spec sheets I'm tempted to go with the Samsung set, although I guess a lot of the final image quality will depend on the image processing engines, and I have only seen the LG at work (quite impressive!), not the Samsung.

    Does anybody want to throw in their 2 cents about which way to go? Many thanks...

    My 2 cents worth but no charge to you.

    You are about to make the same mistake that I nearly made. That is getting bogged down with the paper spec. Foe an LCD set, it's not worth a light as you rightly point out, it's the image processing that is all-important.

    Both Samsung and LG make very capable sets and from what I have seen in the shops, maybe as good as Panasonic and Sony. They certainly have attractive designs.

    I bought the Toshiba which I am very pleased with, although the sound could be a bit better. I found a shop which had a related model on display together with all of the other sets on the same off-air feed.

    You really need to look at your shortlisted models together with fast-moving action to determine which perform with minimal motion blurring. I bet if you do this, your mind will be made up for you.
