^the extra letter usually stands for a slightly different model, such as a different base, that's how it is with samsung anyway. also it is rumored that different versions, such as ones with random letters have cheaper components in them then the original's. But there really is no proof.

Thanks for all the input guys I ended up getting a great deal on a samsung 22" syncmaster
everything is great so far but I think I'll need a new video card, when I run Cod4 in wide screen I lag >.<
