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.

Thats what i thought but having thumbed through the manual its states that static images may cause image retention problems?
 
Where and when did you order,
I ordered from digi uk and they say samsung havent sent them out yet?
Just waiting for them to get it.

Ordered from futurehome on the 16 oct. delivered friday 21st. They apparently had 6 when mine was shipped.
 
Then didgiuk are talking siht as i rang today and he said samsung havent shipped them yet, i ordered on the 10th of Oct and they took my money from the visa two weeks later no telly and my cash has been sitting in their bank.

The guy on the phone said he will ring samsung tomorrow to find out when there due in.

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.

Cancelled my order with didgiuk and ordered with future home, its been shipped and i might get it tommorow.

If it comes i will have a quick look at a few things and report back.
Will be able to try most connections by the weekend.

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 ?
