    I am getting frustrated, why are we not seeing more discussion on this new Samsung model? Seems a great price and the spec is good, is everyone waiting for someone to buy so we can see the results?

    Anyone know if we are likely to see this model is 'a shop near you', preferably nr Swansea in my case (Yes another 'nr Swansea' resident, we should organise a meet!).

    I'll post the link but I guess most already have it http://www.digiuk.com/productdetail.asp?id=4189&c=125792&guid=&s=

    They also have another on this site that seems the same spec but costs £450 more?? http://www.digiuk.com/productdetail.asp?id=4190&c=125792&guid=&s= Weird?!?!

    Anyway thanks all,

    Uz.

    I'm interested in this too. I doubt whether they are even in the country yet. As far as I know, only two internet retailers are listing them at the moment.

    Isn't this guy in the US though? i thought they were already available in the US. I've not seen any reference to when they will be available in the UK.

    Yes, he's from the US. On german forums i've read that the screen will be available there in one or two weeks.

    Can't wait to see this baby in real. :D

    That is a Samsung PS-42S5S or PS-42S5H which will be available soon.

    This is a PS-42P5H which has a second HDMI interface , a third SCART interface, better quality speakers and a more up-market look.

    I'm told this wont be out for some time yet - at least in the UK - but you never know ...

    i like the look of the PS-42S5H better anyways!! If this screen is a copy of the panny or not who cares it should be good as each screen that samsung fetches out catches up to the panny more and more!!! I may even get this screen as a replacement for my hitachi.

    1) Attn Mods: Can you please change a typo in the title of this thread please?..I put a 'P' instead of an 'S' (ps42 'P' 5h should be ps42 'S' 5h). I know it's minor but I'm a bit of a perfectionist :)

    Thanks.

    2) I emailed Be-Direct today and asked when they would have stock and if I could arrange a viewing. They said approx 3-4 weeks and would let me know when they have a definite date. I'll update ASAP.

    3) I viewed the Panny 500 today playing the HD demo and if the Samsung comes close I'll be 'wopping my wad on the counter!!' ;)

    Cheers all,

    Uz.

    It also comes with a beautiful young Asian lady as standard. She will operate the remote control for you at your command

    I showed my wife, thinking 'how can she not like that?!!', she said "Oh god that's just too big" :suicide: ...I back tracked saying "no it's not...it's the asian girl, she so small that it looks bigger than it really is" ;)

    Quick thinking there Jackuzi. Will have to remember that one.

    What do women have against big, expensive TVs?

    I contacted one of the UK suppliers and they have replied saying that Samsung expect to release them to retailers in the 3rd week of June - so another 3 weeks to wait, if the info is correct.
