    I have one of the original 26" screens Samsung bought out...it's a great screen but does struggle with red text on blue and has also developed some vertical banding.

    Might get a new one soon.

    R87 32" here. Use VGA and it looks stunning - finally got the settings all looking their best although Im not sure what to do about HD-DVD as it looks crap - I think I need to switch to component when I want to watch a movie but I havent tried it yet :o

    26inch R73 here, fantastic screen. Just wish I'd waited until now as I could have gotten a 32 or even a 42 for the same price!

    Have a 40" M87 and 23" R87 and both of them are fantastic hooked up to my 360's and great TVs overall.

    I suspect half the forum is running their 360s through a Samsung of some shape or size, we're always on about em. Using a 40in one myself, and the 360 is lovely through VGA.

    Using an L32R87 here over component though will be trading up for an elite as soon as I have my PC upgrade outta the way. You can even read the dead rising text on it :D

    Yeah got the 40" and the 360 is stunning on VGA. Component is not as good though as the picture is less sharp although colours are slightly more colourful.

    I bought an LE32R87 earlier this year for using with my Xbox 360 and I love it.
    I like it so much that I recently bought a second one for the living room :)

    A friend of mine's got a big 42" one and his 360 looks cracking through it.

    I bought a 32" R87 (s-pva panel) for my living room a few months back and liked so much that I bought a 26" R87 for my bedroom.

    I was gonna get another 32" as the prices of both sets are similar but unlike the 26" you arn't guaranteed an s-pva panel. The 360 looks mint on both.

    Alot of peeps don't like the design, or they believe the sets attract dust to easy, though personally I love the design and feel it doesn't attract dust more than any other sets on the market.

    You even get a handy lint free cloth which if you use often enough will keep the set completely dust free. :)

    Also the standard def quality of the r8 is very good when compared to the few budget hdtv's that I've had in the past.

    Got a 32" Sammy. LE32R51BDX i think. It's almost 2 years old now, but the 360 and HD material still look amazing on it. I'm waiting for a "must buy" TV come along before i replace it.

    got a 32" sammy (can't remember specific model tbh) and i love it to bits. One quick question though, i've been using the 360 vga cable on my 2407 at a resolution of 1920x1200, now when i try and use it on my sammy it tells me the res isn't supported (res is higher then that of the tv) - the problem im having is theres no way to change the res unless i plug it back into my 2407 and change it down (2407 is at uni though and im at home :() anyone any ideas ? didn't want to start a whole new thread so figure i'd throw this out in this thread.
