    I was looking at some spec sheets on two Samsung 32" LCD TVs, and the higher priced LT-P326W (looks similar to UK model LW32A33W) is a TFT-LCD panel whereas the cheaper LN-R3288W (looks similar to LE32R51B) is a PVA (Samsung version of MVA) panel. What is the difference in panel technology? What is the reason for the big price difference, even though the 3288 has better screen latency specs (12 mS). The LT-P326W also weighs considerably more, is this a result of panel technology or just better build quality?

    TFT and PVA refer to different aspects of the LCD structure. TFT is the thin-film-transistor driver matrix and PVA is the patterned-verticle-alignment of the liquid crystal structure. Virtually all Samsung LCD TVs use PVA or more recently Super-PVA LC arrangments and each are of the TFT variety.
