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)
Pint-size luxury and funky style
