further info on A/C/S Samsung panels

This is further to the thread below which dealt with Samsung using panels other than Samsung panels on their LCD TVs (5 and 6 series and below)

I think this info could be valuable to customers who are considering the above mentioned Samsung TV lines. At least it gives a good starting point to start some research into this matter and think and act wisely.
THIS CONCERNS ONLY LCD LINES BELOW 650 SERIES.

From Amazon, a discussion on the different panels:(3 pages):

pics of a and c panel pixles

Here is a pic of an S panel of a member on avs (from a 550 series):

looks like an s-pva panel, huh?
stock pic of s-pva:

here is MY c panel on the 550 series LCD:

does it look ANYTHING like the s-panel???
NOPE; it doesn't!!! it's reversed pattern CMO panel!

These are the panel types ID's in the service menu of German Samsung TVs, and they DO THE SAME THING everywhere in the world:
1.) AMLCD_INT = Samsung S-PVA Panel (Active Matrix / Default)
2.) AUO_AMVA = AU Optotronics A-AMVA Panel
3.) SCMO_INT = CMO S-MVA Panel
4.) CMO = CMO MVA Panel

and these panels correlated with the A, S, and C after the model numbers, also Im Germany, JUST LIKE in USA.

Here's the German website where the SAME discussion of Samsung s/c/a panel switch took place (2007);
I am fluent in german, and believe me it's exactly the SAME discussion like on avs...
here's the link if anyone wants to translate to see that I am telling truth: (actually you don't even need to understand German to see what's going on; look at the pics, and model numbers and panel designations on that whole page)

I believe this now

after reading some of this, i did a little bit of research and sad to say, it does looks like it's true about SS using different panels under same model name; and they even have different pixel structure? no wonder they look different;
I was happy with my C panel (CMO Cei mei), and now I feel cheated Sad

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
