I can't wait to see a proper review on them, the construction looks great, but I hope it can perform.

what i can't understand worth a damn is, why would they send out units to be reviewed with a 25ms panel if the final version is supposed to be a 12ms panel? that would be like sending out a car to be reviewed and going 'oh btw, the interior and engine are gonna be completely different, but review this one'

just doesn't make any sense to me.

Where did you see the review? What is confusing about these is that they are migrating to a different panel without changing the name - from 25ms to 12ms.

just got my 152x today and WOW is this lil thing sexeh, the ghosting isnoticable in a few places tho, but after about an hour my eyes are used to it, and it doesnt bother me any more. the colours are real nice and there are 0 dead pixels, and the bezel is actualy tiny...as in VERY tiny. a little less than the width of my little finger, wich is pretty skinny as little fingers go... if some 1 want to host some pictures for me, the world can see what i mean....

I agree. Seems like they would be shooting themselves in the foot. It's even worse then a car. The screen is pretty much like the entire car on an LCD. The case is very little of the LCD. It would be more like the entire car being changed but the color of the paint.

Also, I'm really surprised by the reviewers who knew damn well that it wasn't the screen they would ship with yet decided to review it anyway. Then they say things like, "who, great colors and great side viewing, will be nice to see it in 12ms"...jeez, they aren't just changing the response time, but the WHOLE SCREEN! Everything might change for the worse.

Hopefully it will be better in all aspects instead.

stuman,

My Samsung 152T had 1 dead pixel, its no big deal really. When do you think they will release the 152X in the US?

Later,
Eli
