    the t51b is cheaper, newer, doesn't have the pseudo-surround sound, speakers are only 7.5W (not 10W), speakers are to the side. Has power-saving functionality.

    Doesn't have dynamic brightness sensor.

    Some other differences to.

    I hadn't looked at the specs... but to be honest...if it is just the Brightness sensor and speakers then I don't think that is a major problem....

    Most people seem to turn the sensor off anyway and run audio through a AV amp.

    yeah, that's probably true. Not sure if there are any other differences though. I would look for a saving of at least £50 to get this one rather than the R41B though.

    I have spoken to Samsung several times on the differences between the 2.
    Here they are:
    It's black, speakers are on the side & basically, it's the same screen as the LE32R51 - only cheaper.

    Friends,
    Who said that this model doesn't have dinamic sensor?
    Please visit the samsung page for the specs and you will see.

    I bought a slim Fit tv but will change it for this LCD, because the slim fit has geometry problems.

    The only thing I dislike is if you look closer you will see a lack of definition on details, crt doesn't have this at a closer look

    Also the slim fit I have to see dvd's sucks, because for ex when someone turn his face real quick there's a follow image to acompany the face, therefore you see like a ghost after the image until it fits with it!!

    yeah no HDMI on the T51B.
    I guess that's the reason it's so cheap.
    could be quite a problem if you want to connect multiple devices.

    i believe that the T51 also lacks the fine 10bit signal processing, it only has 10 pages of teletext memory as contrast to +1000 on the R51b, it uses a VESA 200x200 wallmount opposed to a 200x100 on the R51b.

    So i looks to me it a budget/discount model of the R41/51b models, picture wise I have no experince with the T model unfortunately

    Let's not forget 2000:1 contrast as opposed to the 3000:1 of the R and M models.

    I acctually ordered this one, but then I read some really bad user experiences about the screen and material quality, so I went for the newer LE32M51B instead. Can't wait to get a hold of it :)

    PS: I acctually got to see the T, R and M models at a shop a few days ago, and while the T was the worst of the bunch, it wasn't all bad. If money is a big issue then I guess T51 still is a good purchase.

    Solidblur, where did you read negative feedback on the T51?
    I can't find it.

    HI guys,
    I have just got this set and overall I'm pretty
    pleased with it for the price (£749). However are all DVI connections
    HDCP? I only ask because I can't get a picture using an HDMI>DVI cable.
    I have read that this only works with an HDMI>HDMI cable and a HDMI>DVI
    convertor. I'd have thought there wasn't any difference but does anyone know?


    Thanks

    Have you got an Xbox 360 hooked up to it yet? If so did you get a clear picture as i am having so many problems with it. With regards to the question, the DVI is HDCP but i think you do need a HDMI - HDMI + converter i think

    I'm hooked up with the 360 and the picture is amazing.

    Had a go at Fight Night Round 3 last night and it's jaw dropping stuff :)

    I found loads of topics on this a week or so ago, but couldn't find them now. Anyway, people were saying that:
    1. It had a cheap plastic look
    2. The PQ during Sky/normal telly watching was horrible.

    I had already ordered mine, but got scared when reading post with alot of "This tv sucks!!!" in them, and cancelled my order in favour of a M51.

    When I searched for it now, i found alot of positive remarks though. Looks like I got spooked a bit fast.

    The picture quality with normal telly isn't great, but it's much better with freeview. Can't comment on sky. The quality was certainly on a par with any of the other lcds I saw in the shop.

    360 running on it amazing though, no doubt about it :)

    Well my 23" version had the most awful image problems running the X360 through it, unreadable text, via scart or component, so I have got in touch with samsung who are sending someone out to hopefully fix it tomorrow! Fingers crossed I'll be able to actually play on my Xbox 360 in HD glory!

    I bought this telly from Costco for £751. I've got it hooked up to my Freeview based media center PC through VGA and I must say that I'm very pleased with the picture quality, just as good I would say as a friends much more expensive panasonic.

    On DVDs the I would say the picture is excellent and also on the HD content I've downloaded and played.

    The only think I would say is that black is quite grey although that seems to be a problem with most LCDs I've looked at.

    BTW has anyone connected a PC to the DVI port? The manual says that PC mode is not supported on the DVI port, what exactly does that mean?
