Hi all

Newbie post, convinced myself to buy on of the above sams. But can anyone clear up what the difference is between the BD and the BDX, if any.

Many thanks

both the same mate

i think the BDX is just the dixons group's batch numbers, apart from that, same telly,

be aware theres 2 models though

one with freeview, one without.

BD and BDX are the same. Both have digital tuners for Freeview.
The 41 and 51 are only cosmetically different. the 51 is on ly sold through Dixons Currys and PC world. The 41 everywhere else... :)


I came here to ask the same question.

I had assumed that the BDX was just a dixons or similar suffix, until I saw the panels on play.com tonight.

They sell both the B and the BDX - The BDX in stock, the B out of stock.

BDX - http://www.play.com/play247.asp?page=title&r=ELEC&title=742345&p=319&g=405&pa=genbrw

B - http://www.play.com/play247.asp?page=title&r=ELEC&title=742342&p=319&g=405&pa=genbrw

Considering the BDX is £50 dearer also, can someone please check I am not looking at this wrong - otherwise it looks like there may be a difference.

Also, what is the difference between the 41 and 51 models?

The difference between the B and BD/BDX models is that the ones with a "D" in the model number have an integrated digital TV tuner ( Freeview ). The only difference between the 41 and 51 models is cosmetic. On the 51 models the triangular bit at the bottom is black plus they are exclusive to the Dixons group stores ( Dixons, Currys and PC World ).
