    Just came across the new Samsung range here:-

    http://www.digiuk.com/sectionlist.asp?c=1002960&s=&guid=&id=74

    3 new models one with iDTV, contrast Ratio up to 800:1, I'm guessing that the 40" panels are coming out of the Samsungs latest LCD plant, which only started production in March.

    Funny though Samsungs UK site doesn't list them.

    Looking good. 2 x SCART, Component and HDMI.

    But 3000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio?

    The new 26" looks good as well :)

    LE26R41B and LE26R41BD iDTV Tuner (£799.99 & £849.98 at digiuk)

    And they are 1366 x 768 which the old samsung 26" isn't

    This and the black Samsung 950 DVD HDMI player MIGHT be a good combination :thumbsup:

    Just have to wait for the reviews :boring:

    Not bad spec - the 32" iDTV could make my shortlist along with the Hitachi 32LD7200. Digital tuner is good, but 1 HDMI and no DVI means only 1 digital input.

    I was thinking about getting the existing 26 inch Samsung (LW26A33WX) but this new one looks far superior (and cheaper?!). Any ideas when these will be available, digi uk has it as already available (i think)

    If they are based on the models here in America then they should do well. Really nice contrast and deep beautiful colors. 1080 content also looks much better.

    Does anyone have any experience of Digi Uk, if they are any good I will definately go for the 26 inch, so much better then the one I was going to go for in Comet!

    Edit: Now I am stuck deciding between the normal and iDTV ones! I have read about a few issues of iDTV might become incompatible in the future, or some rubbish like that. Does anyone else have any info on this?

    Boought a PC Monitor from them a couple of years ago, had one dead pixel, rang them up, told them the situation to which they resonded that is within their allowances. Pushed them a little and they had a replacement there next day. All round good eggs really.

    I used DIGIUK a couple of years ago for my first (and still current) Samsung TFT.

    If memory serves me right you could link from the Samsung UK site direct to DIGIUK as an authorised seller.

    No trouble with them at all.

    I've found that www.be-direct.co.uk are selling the LE26R41BD and the LE32R41BD for £659.99 and £979.99 respectively. These seem like very good prices.
    :thumbsup:

    I dunno,
    I am very wary of internet shops, it took me ages to consider Digi Uk, and I am only going on good reviews, Samsung Certified and a good web page. BeDirect looks really dodgey and the contract details are a bit dodgey! But then again it is £200 cheaper!

    I also like the idea (and crazy price) of the LE26R41BD. Does anyone have any idea whether it is any good? Anyone seen any reviews at all?

    I agree... I am not going to buy anything until I see a review first anyway...

    It is still a lot of money

    But it is still tempting :D

    I also want to see what phillips and the other guys are coming out with....

    Someone knows if 3000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio is a real contrast ratio?

    The real ratio I think is 800:1....

    3000:1 must be some fancy processing thingy.

    The highest contrast I know of for lcd's is 1000:1

    Just seen the Samsung LE40R51B 40" LCD advertised for £1699 inc. del. @ BE-Direct, makes the Philips 9986 37" @ a £1000 more listed also, seem a tad expensive, will search for more info.

    I think things are getting silly... :clown:

    The LE40R51B is listed on the Dutch Samsung site. It has 2 scarts (1 RGB capable), component, composite, S-video, VGA and HDMI/DVI. According to the manual DVI is video only and not PC compatible. However VGA accepts 1360x728@60Hz. I've seen prices listed on some sites (about €3200), but they have taken them off now (they're still in Google's cache though :)).

    According to the person I just spoke to at digiuk.com these new Samsung models (inc the Samsung LE26R41BD 26 Inch version) won't be released until June/July.

    I hope that this turns out to be a winner. If the reviews are good then this could well be my next screen.
    According to this preview http://www.cnet.com/4520-10602_1-5618874-1.html it is supposed to be an 8ms screen - however according to Samsung - http://www.samsung.com/PressCenter/PressRelease/PressRelease.asp?seq=20050106_0000090601 its a 12ms screen.

    I am sure the be-direct price must be an error - given the screen size - but I hope I'm wrong.

    There is also a LNR409D model on its way too - using a new type of backlight - it costs quite a bit more though.

    you will not see any difference between 8ms and 12ms response times so dont worry about it.

    Samsung LE-32R51B has just won a small group-test here in Denmark where it was up against Loewe Xelos and Hitachi 32LD7200 - so I guess this little nice Sammy´s the next one going on my wall :thumbsup:
    But i think i´ll get it in the whole black version (LE-32R53B)

    Hello all

    I found these forums and saw some comments regarding the company that I work for www.be-direct.co.uk

    We don't as a matter of course sell goods that we don't actually have available for delivery.

    The only difference is where a new product is being launched. We take the imformation that the manufacturer supplies to us and list the item within a couple of weeks of the launch date.

    With regards to the new Samsung LE26 and 32's we have a lot of stock on order and will get some of the first product available in the UK.

    There is an issue in that the product was listed on our information from Samsung that the products would be launched in May (and appeared as available on our May Samsung price list). We therefore listed the product for sale.

    We have in fact started to get delivery of some of the new models of Samsung flat screen in the last week or two. We checked with Samsung earlier this week and were told that the bulk of the rest of our outstanding new stock should be with us before the end of this month.

    I have worked in the past for both Samsung and Panasonic and it is not unusual for product launch dates to slip by a few weeks or even a couple of months. Generally though when the item appears on the price list you know it should be imminent.
