    Hi,

    I have a selection of Samsungs that range in screen size, 50-100Hz and obviously price.
    Is bigger better?
    or
    Is the 100Hz worth having even if the screen size was smaller?

    This morning I was gonna order the 32" 100Hz LE32M87BDX, but now I am tempted by the bigger screens 37" and 40".

    Here are the Samsungs, there prices and sizes... which would you get and why?

    £491.00 SAMSUNG LE32R88BD
    £530.00 SAMSUNG LE32M87BDX 100Hz 32
    £572.00 Samsung LE37R87BDX
    £615.00 SAMSUNG LE37R88BD
    £634.00 Samsung LE40R87BDX

    Depend's where you are in the living room, but between 2.6 and 3.6 meters.

    I think the hardest desision is between the LE32M87BDX and LE40R87BDX?

    40" would be great but is the 100Hz thing in the 32" worth it considering the size differance?

    LE40R87BDX/XEU 658 Price inc VAT and Delivery from LASKYS.com is which is same as Dixons.

    I think Dixons model LE40R88BDX might have that stupid blue light in the case though?

    Does anyone know anywhere cheaper?

    I can confirm you can turn of the stupid blue glowing light:

    It can:
    be off altogether
    be on altogether
    be only on whilst watching TV
    be only on in standby

    Thus I ordered the Dixons version as it didn't have the chrome trime which I didn't like.

    In the end I went with bigger is better so got the 40 inch screen LE40R88BDX.

    Thanks for all the help, it should come on Sunday,Monday,Tuesday.

    Recieved and installed at home now.

    Very disappointed about the picture quality.
    It's basically as bad as it was in the shop so I thought it would be a lot better to be honest.
    It's a massive quality decline from my broken Sony Trinitron CRT.

    But, the space it saves is a big benifit.

    Looking back I should have gone for the cheapest option until they manufacturers can improve the picture quality.
    My computor monitor LCD is fantastic picture but the source is a computer so I suppose that is why but I didn't expect it to be so bad.
