    Any major differences?
    I'm panicking now as I'm awaiting delivery.
    Can anyone throw any light on the matter or am i just being daft?
    Thanks to everyone who hasposted on here to make my choice easier.

    'B' is just one of the suffixes that all Sony TVs have to denote which market the product is intended for and my understanding is that all UK HQ100s are 'B's anyway.

    Hi
    I think these TV's look nice, B stands for black.







    B = black and silver

    I've got the service manual in front of me-"B" Is supposed to be France, "E" Spain & "k" is O/RT(?? Sorry,don't know) "U" always used to be UK,but the "B" doesn't mean anything about colour.

    I think that's the normal way but I've never seen a U version of HQ100 so I'm guessing that 'B' version covers UK in this instance.

    I have never seen a picture like this.Ever. My brother in law has a Panasonic 42" Viera plasma which is nothing on this. I would heartily recommend this to anyone even though it isn't a flat panel. Sure it's big but it was worth the argument over loss of space in the living room. :smashin:

    Hi
    Having never seen a Sony TV with the prefix "B" , and never seen one which is black and silver, 2+2=4
    There are some Sony models which have the "B" and are sold in Europe, so it is not for that purpose.

    According to the nice person I spoke to at Sony's CIC, 'B' suffix models are normaly sold in parts of continental Europe but work fine in the UK because they cover UHF, VHF and all European PAL systems. 'U' versions apparantly only cover PAL system I and UHF frequencies only. And there isn't a 'U' version of 36HQ100. :lesson:
