    First Post:
    I would appreciate advice on the highest (on paper at least) spec Samsung LCD screen. Considering a 46" 100Hz M-series. first-hand experience will be most welcome.

    Having spoken with the very pleasant Samsung people (up in Scotland somewhere), I realised that they were totally clueless as to the spec of the LCD screens that their company had on offer!

    I'd like to know:

    1) which is the highest spec large LCD?

    2) 50Hz or 100Hz is preferred for Freeview & DVD content?

    3) Is there no 46", 1080p, with 24fps mode?

    4) any new screens in the pipeline?

    many thanx,
    Neurotic Man

    p.s. read about freeview judder on some Samsungs in this forum - bit
    worrying!

    The best samsung 46" is the brand new 46F86 which is 1080p and 100Hz.You cant find any better samsung in my opinion at this size.(only on larger).And of course has 24p cabability.Also the new Sony KDL-46X3500 has all these

    Both the F86 and M86/87 series have 46" models that can show Blu-ray at 24fps.

    The M86 doesn't have 100Hz, whereas the F86 does, although many people choose to turn it off anyway. 100Hz introduces some artifacts under certain circumstances for some fast moving objects. Even with it off it had good motion handling and the review on HDTV test suggested it was worth the extra money over the now reduced M86/87s.

    There is an issue with the internal freeview on the M86/M87 as you say. There is no fix for it although it is not necessarily on all sets.

    The F86 also has an odd effect where things seem to slow down momentarily.
    This is on all sources, not experienced universally and it's nature and whether it can be fixed are unknown.
