    My new samsung arrived last friday :clap: . Haven't had chance to set it up as yet (got to buy a unit for it to stand on tomorrow).Are there any running in tips i should adhere to to avoid causing any damage, lowering the brightness etc, for the first 100 hours or so.

    I'm seriously considering buying this model. Please let me know what you think of it once you've had a chance. Where did you buy it from and for how much (if you don't mind).

    Did you see it first before buying it, if so where ? That's the only problem at the minute - no where seems to have it to dem it.

    Please please post some pics when you get it up and running, I think you may be one of the first on here to get the 61 range.

    Does this one do real PIP and PAP, I believe the old one only did PC input in P, I'm looking for a replacement for my Sony 36FS70 wich has excellent PIP/PAP functionality.

    The whole "lowering the brightness" thing refers to plamsas. This can help reduce screen burn but as its not possible on LCD's you dont need to worry.

    Its been up and running for about an hour and first impressions are as follows.
    It looks superb!
    DVD playback from hdmi (for the 30 min of finding nemo i've seen) superb.
    Not tried any HD material yet. Tomorrow hopefully
    sky through rgb scart very good but ill reserve final judgement after a couple of footie matches.
    Very happy bunny :clap:
    I'll try and get the photos on now. Dont hold your breath though.

    They're listed on futurehome. About £1250, although they had the 41 / 51 model at about £120 more expensive than you can buy it in some online stores.

    Am I right to think this model does not come with a digital tuner ? If yes - any rumours of a model in this style with dvb ?

    I see from a quick google of LE32M61B that the 32in Version of the 61 series is available in a few European countries such as Switzerland and Italy from about £1200.

    Has anyone any ideas when this set will be sold in the UK?

    You can post your photos on that free image place.

    then it gives you a link you can copy and paste into the forum.

    What are the major differences between the LE40R51 and the LE40M61 and is it worth the extra money?
