    Just look in a manual (Samsung LE23R51B & 41B).
    The 51B has 1366x768 pixels and the pixel pitch is 0.015(H) x 0.015(V) inch
    The 41B has 1280x720 pixels and the pixel pitch is 0.005(H) x 0.016(V) inch

    The pixel pitch is so much different from each other.
    I can't explain this.
    Both screens are 23 inch.
    Only the resolution is a *little bit* different.
    How is it possible that this pixel pitch is so much different?
    The 51B has a triple horizontal pitch.

    BTW: do I understand the word pitch good?
    Is it the distance (heart to heart) between the pixels?
    Can anyone clear this up?

    It's a misprint, that's all. PP is the same for both, the 41 just uses slightly larger pixels for the same screen size.
    Cost saving on a few fronts - no scaling to do on the 41. Input a 720p signal and that's it. Job done!
    Cheaper screen to manufacture, and no Freeview as per the 51.
    I think the defintion of PP is the distance between like coloured pixels. It's not the gap between adjacent pixels. This presumes it follows the definition of dot pitch, which is used in specs for CRT monitors.
