The M series has 32 Zoens, and they are half the size of the E series, so should cause less a problem, but probably still not perfect.
The P series, will have half the size of the M series, so they should work rather well I would think. Will it be perfect, I don't know.
The R series will have 384 zones, that should be perfect, the zones will be 6 times smaller then the P series, which is pretty small.
I don't know about the other panels. But with the B3 panels, you don't really need the zones. The blacks by default are pretty good. Maybe they aren't as good as being able to turn off the LED, as the Zones do, but the difference isn't huge, it's just slight.
Now, if you are use to plasma screens, and get a B3 panel, and compare the two, don't expect the B3 to win, but at least you don't have to worry about burn in.
