Whats the difference? Apart from the My Colour Control (MCC) thingy?
The BD version has a Digital tuner Freeview integrated in the set.
The 51 is just cosmetically different from 41 and only available through the Dixons group..PC World and Currys.
Apoparently the 51 also has better response time (8ms compared to 12 or 16ms for the 41), but there seems to be a lot of confusion over this.
well looking at the 51, it comes in at about £100 more than the 41 (on pricerunner), not sure if this is cos it's newer or maybe it does have something uprated i.e. response time.
I posted this in another thread recently. Hope it helps:
LE26RxxB : Sets ending in B don't have the built in freeview tuner.
LE26RxxBD : Have the freeview tuner
LE26RxxBDX : Have the freeview tuner (i.e. identical to LE26RxxBD)
The 41 series have a response time of 12ms whereas the 51 series are 8ms. There's plenty of debate about this, but having seen it reported directly from Samsung I tend to believe it.
The 51's also come with the latest firmware alreay installed, whereas the 41 sets may need to be upgraded manually. The latest firmware fixes the screen tear issue. There's a massive thread about this in the LCD section.
I also read somewhere that the 51's have slightly improved PIP functionalty.
Finally, there are some minor cosmetic differences between the two sets.
