Help with Samsung LCD TV's

Have decided it is time to upgrade from our Sony CRT TV to an LCD one.

Having been into Currys today, was very impressed by the picture and styling of the Samsung ones.

Am looking at the LE37R87BD, but I also see that there is a LE37R88BD and also a LE37R87BDX.

I cannot really see the difference between the 87 and the 88, or, what difference the "X" makes - has anybody got any idea if there is any difference between them or is it simply a styling difference?

Also, would welcome any recommendations for others for around the same money?

Thanks a lot.

"BR" and "BDX" mean the same thing I believe. They both stand for "Bordeaux". Not quite sure what it means though.

yes as said above BD and BDX are short for Bordeaux (just a Samsung naming convention, towns/cities I think) can be listed as either, the R87 and R88 are the same tv's with a few cosmetic changes, Blue led light and the power button on the right. The R88 series is also a DSG "exclusive" so is only sold in Curry's, Dixons and PC World.

You not right
Naming conventions for Samsung:
B- Black - Case Color. May be W - White
D- Digital tuner. May omit
There are:
- Model: LE40R71B [R] S
- Model Code: LE40R71BX/BWT
To differ Model & Model Code add X to last

If we are talking about project/platform - let's talk about cities and flowers :)

These things are quite difficult to make sense of...

In Samsung monitors I think:
W = wide (but maybe in the TVs it does mean White?)
M = multimedia (adds a TV tuner)

e.g.
2032BW
2032MW
