    Hi,

    I've been researching which 32" LCD to buy, and the Samsung LE32RXX model has come out on top due to looks/features/price. I am prob going to buy from Dabs, and they have loads of R31B 's at the moment, which are £50 cheaper than the R41B. I have seen the
    R41 up close and read all the reviews here, but there does seem to be a bit of difference between the 2. Samsung site is poor for specs for these models, as they still have the LE32A41 details there :( Tuners are not that important since I will be connecting it to a Digi-TV source. If anyone has links to proper samsung spec site please reply. Also, tearing issues with these models worry me, but maybe the R31 is not effected as I have not seen it mentioned in the tearing survey.

    Some differences I found:
    R41 R31
    Contrast Ratio: 3000:1 - 800:1 ( Can this be right?? )
    PVA tech (?) : No? - Yes ( Might be with R41, not sure )

    Any insight into this appreciated.

    Also, if you would recommend a different 32 LCD for £800-£850 please tell me

    Cheers,
    Ciaran

    Discussed in this thread but never got a definite answer but from looking at the specs myself the brightness, contrast and viewing angle are all slightly inferior to the LE32R41B as for the 3000:1 ratio they use what’s called a dynamic measurement there but I do not know if they are using the same means of measuring for the LE32R31S (Dabs cut off the S for some reason but that’s its proper name).

    That’s all I know looks to be the same generation panel maybe a slightly lower grade one so that’s why its cheaper but I'm just guessing...

    Thanks for the reply, just bought the LE32R41B yesterday from Dabs, but now I want
    a LE-32M61B http://www.samsung.de/webdownloads/pictures/le32+40m61b.jpg

    btw, the R41 has 500cdm's and the R31S has only 400cdm's, so the 41 is prob a better buy
    for £50 quid more just for the better quality panel.

    Oh well. Maybe I will flog this one in a couple of months and get the newer one!

    Cheers,
    Ciaran
