    While browsing for information on one of the varients of the LE32R41B I happened across a German forum that has its own large thread dedicated to the same display anyway I thought this was interesting as it seems Samsung will launch two new displays the LE-32M61B & LE-42M61B.

    According to a poster in the German thread which bablefish translated they are updates to the LE32R41B etc generation displays and the changes are minor a new housing plus better contrast it seems, run this thread through a translator and see Fudohs post.

    They also mention a Samsung LE-32M51B however it seem this is identical to the LE32R41B it just has the same housing as the LE-32M61B & the new displays will be available in mid September (at least in Germany it seems).

    Translated German press release

    It seems they are already listed on Samsung's German website

    Some more hi-res pictures of the LE32M61.


    Image 1

    Image 2

    Image 3

    The only differences in appearance seems to be the bottom bit around the power and control buttons. On the M51 model it is silver, on the M61 model it is black. Haven't compared the tech specs yet to see if there are any differences there.

    Just did a point to point comparison of the tech specs.
    Found only two differences between the M61 and M51 models.

    Dynamic Contrast:

    M61 is 5000:1
    M51 is 3000:1

    Viewing Angle:

    M61 is 178°/178°
    M51 is 170°/170°

    Making the M61 slightly better than the M51. Shame I prefer the look of the M51. :(

    They'll be exactly the same, just typo's.

    I would not take whatever is written on a website (or even in the manual) as gospel.

    Found a few more differences in addition to the view angle & brightness:
    M51B: 2x5W sound
    M61B: 2x10W sound

    M51B: 5 colour settings (Standard, pink, green, blue, user defined)
    M61B: lists no such setting

    And it seems the M61B isn't listed as a 26" model?

    The blurb about the different tv's mentions that the M61B has an S-PVA screen, enabling greater brightness and viewing angles? Thus the 5000 vs 3000:1 contrasts could be valid measurements if the models use different panels.

    It sounds to me like the LE-xxM51B model is identical to the LE-xxR51B model except for the design of the frame. Maybe this is the updated 720p/60Hz tearing-free version?

    That would be nice, the new models look pretty good on paper... but then again so did the R41 & R51.

    I think I am going to to wait also as I am not sure I am wanting to risk having the tearing issue either. Although the 40 LE40R51B doesn't seem to suffer from this!!

    I think that the 178degree panel is the new, award winning 8ms response time panel and the other, isn't.

    LE40M61B it is, then. Manual! Here manual. Good manual. Here boy.

    The M51 series has the same specs as the R41/R51 (as I've said in my previous thread), but M61 is quite different (and of course more expensive). That series offers a dynamic contrast of 5000:1 (quite impressive)

    According to Samsung the LE40M61B will outperform the 8000 euro 1920x1080 sharp LC45GD1E (for DVD?).

    I have seen a couple of problems with the x41/x51 which I hope are addressed somewhat: black-level contrast (no detail in partially dark scenes), fast moving pan shots, poor reds.

    Does anyone know the cost of this unit and if it suffers the same tearing problem?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I'm in the market for a LCD and have shortlisted the Samsung range (26/32/40"). Some news I've picked up on is the LE40M61 has won the EISA 2005/2006 Best LCD.
    Also btw, the Pioneer PSP-506XDE has won th EISA 2005/2006 Best Plasma.
    I'm guessing the LE32/40M61 will be out in the UK late Autumn at higher prices than currently? I do like the R41/R51 though too..

    Decission..decissions...but now or wait a couple of months..hmm?

    Found this at samsung.fr:

    LE26M51B
    Téléviseur LCD 16/9e
    • Mode DNIe™
    • Luminosité 500 cd/m2
    • Dynamic contrast
    (jusqu’à 3000:1)
    • Haute résolution 1366x768
    (HD Ready)
    • Progressive Scan
    • Temps de réponse 8 ms
    • Son SRS Tru Surround XT
    • Connectiques HDMi & PC
    • Dual Acoustic Chamber
    System (DCAS)
    • Compatible VESA

    It's probably just a typo, does anyone know for sure?

    I do not know what the responce time is for the LE-26R41B to compare against but according to the info that I read only the LE-32M61B & LE-42M61B are new displays anything that is LE-xxM51B is the same as the LE-xxR4/51B just with a new case housing for the screen. So I do not think their is anything new about the LE-26M51B.

    Can anyone tell me please what the Samsumg LE40M61B does with stand definition input signals i.e. SKY Plus via RGB SCART or DVD via HDMI.

    The Samsung models to not seem to mention anything with regards to scaling technology (i.e. like Philips Pixel Plus and SONY's WEGA Engine) which will convert SD upto 720p etc.

    I currently have the following LCD models on my shortlist:
    JVC LCD LT-40FH96 40" 1080p (2005 Fall)
    Sony V-Series KDL-V40A12U 40" LCD
    Philips 42PF9330 40" LCD

    However, I am intrigued by this new Samsung model which has recently won the EISA award and claims to offer a superior viewing angle of 178degrees (as well as 8ms).

    (I understand that the SONY V series uses a Samsung panel anyway - but SONY is only claiming a viewing angle of 170 !!)

    Would I be correct in understanding that the Samsung LCD's will merely display SD input with large surrounding borders?

    Also would someone be kind enough to point me in the direction of a link which explains this tearing business (I am not familiar with this term with respect to LCD panels).

    Thanks in advance for any help/advice offered
    Kind Regards
    Chambeaj

    I don't believe Samsung has any built in scaler that up-converts SD content on any of there current displays including the latest LE-32M61B & LE-42M61B you need a third party device for that.

    You can set the display to auto or manual settings and strech out any content to fit the screen if its not brodcast in widescreen format.
