TS01 indicates the type
of panel, not the part number. Samsung, and other mfrs, use an identification system to specify the type of panel used in their tv's. Panels used depend on availability of specific panels in specific sizes. For example, TS01 for Samsung indicates that the panel used is the S-PVA panel which is made by Samsung. LG, on the other hand, used S-IPS panels in some of their tv which was indicated (at least when I bought mine) by a "W", which was the fourth letter in the complete product code. It can be very daunting to figure out the panel type used in tv's by any mfr unless you can "decode" the product codes, knowing that not all panel types are available for all sizes of tv's.
