    I'm looking to purchase the Samsung 26" LCD telly with integrated freeview and HDTV Ready (it has the HDMI connection).

    Dixons, Currys and one or two other shops are selling the LE26R51BD, whereas most other stores are selling LE26R41BD or LE26R41BDX.

    Notice the difference in the model number?!?! Does this mean there is a difference in spec or not? I've had a look at them myself, and I can't spot any obvious difference, and telly shops don't know if there is a difference or not? ( I understand the 'D' in the model number means its 'digital', i.e. with freeview!)

    I just hoped some of you, who are better with TV specs than I, could tell me if there is any difference, or whether the Dixons group are being 'cool' by changing the model number?

    Thank you in advance! :smashin:

    Haha, how do you know that about the manuals??

    Are you an undercover agent for Samsung, and know everything about their products?? Lol, I love Samsungs, Honest!!! :rotfl:

    So, it just appears that the appearance seems to be different?!?! I dunno whether I prefer the 51 better, what do you think?

    I noticed now there's at least 3 Samsung models based on the same spec:

    1. LE32R41B/X, LE32R41BD/X with freeview
    2. LE32R51B (same as above with different design around speakers)
    3. LE32R31S - just released? anyone know the difference? anyone reported tearing on this?

    Does anyone know for certain if the LE32R31 on Dabs is the same as the LE32R41B/X I placed an order for the LE26R41B but it seems it will be ages before Dabs get these in stock and they have quite a few of those LE32R31 displays and the specs seem to match up, I'm sorely tempted to go for the LE32R31 but I'd hate to order it and find out its not the right one.

    To confuse matters Dabs also sell the LE32R41B as well.

    It is very confusing and seems difficult to find proper information out as the Samsung sites don't list half their models!

    After looking more closely it looks like the LE32R31S has a difference in contrast ratio
    LE-32R31S - 800:1
    LE-32R41B - 3000:1 (dynamic)

    Brightness value
    LE-32R31S - 400cd/m²
    LE-32R41B - 500cd/m²


    The full specs for the LE-32R31S and the LE-32R41B are on Samsungs German website, could it be a cheaper display by using not as good a panel or lower grade one than whats in the LE-32R41B ??
