Does the amount of pixels vary between different lcds or just the size?

    Hi,
    I'm sorry to ask what is probably a very stupid question but I was looking on the samsung website and the LNR408D (40") says it has the same resolution of 1366x768 as the LNR238D (23").
    Does this mean that the larger model has exactly the same resolution only the pixels are just larger?

    No. Some screens have more pixels as well.

    (Edit - sorry just re-read the OP. In this case the number of pixels is the same. However, some screens do have more pixels)

    Number of pixels = resolution X * resolution Y.
    Eg:

    1366 x 768 = +- 1 Million dot. (about 1 Megapixel)
    1920x1080 = +- 2 Mega Pixel.

    Samer resolution, bigger screen = bigger pixels, and often bigger inbetween pixel spaces.

    Thanks very much for all your help,
    I just have another question - does the same apply to the LE40R51B?
    because here they list it as having a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels but then a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels does this mean that it can play videos at a resoution of 1920 x 1080 and that the smaller model can't?

    It will accept 1920x1080 signal but will down scale it to 1366x768.
