    Hiya,

    Am looking for a 32" or greater display for my new Xbox 360. Am currently looking at the Hyundai ImageQuest Q321 or the Samsung LE32R41B.

    - Am I right in saying that the Samsung is the larger model of that used in the Xbox 360 pods in stores?

    - Is there any substantial difference between these displays?

    - Is £760 for the Samsung, £780 for the Hyundai a fair price, and if not where should I be looking?

    - Are there any other recommendations for displays, under the £800 mark? Will be used for Xbox, Freeview and DVDs.

    Thanks in advance all,

    Steve

    Samsung model would be fine, cant speak for hyundai but the r7 samsung version is out soon which is the successor to the r4 and has had microsoft people work on a special 'Game' mode with customised settings for Xbox 360 and has increased contrast, response time and multiple HDMI ports. These should be on the street this time next month and will be approx £800-£900 and will be the best xbox 360 screen going for reasonable money.

    (am hoping to get one myself)

    Actually only 1 HDMI so far for the R71/74... Which is a bit disappointing really, seen how all the new versions of last year's panels from all other companies will come out with 2 HDMI this year...

    If you download the podcast they actually mention the new Sammy models, and that one will include a special 'Game mode'.:)
