ALERT before you buy that 32" Samsung You Must know this.
Samusung uses 3 types of panels from 3 places.
S panel Samsung Best
A panel AU Optronics (some say 2nd place I say worst)
C Panel Made by Chi Mei this is what I have its ok deep blacks. Very poor view angles.
Anyways. How do you know what you are buying.
On the Outside of the box Theres a white sticker on the thin side, Under the Model Number LN32B360C5D
theres a set of 4 characters CN02, AA01, SS01, SQ02, CN01
If it Starts with a C, or an A don't buy it. Look for one that has an S.
Thats made by Samsung, and you just won the panel lottery.
pics of what you need. good luck if you can find one they have been $379 for weeks and its discontinued so no more coming. Unless a BB has one close or you can order online.http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e336/MikeL1/panny.jpg
Thats how you know before you open the box.
