Question "A" and "S" Panels... I don't want to get screwed over!

Does anyone know which models of the Samsung monitors have the "A" and "S" panels? I heard S was better than A. Does the 206bw have this problem? Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 206BW Black 20" 2 ms (GTG) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 800:1 (DCR 3000:1) - Retail


Side Note: I kind of changed my mind on the LG... the pixel pitch of .294 seems big compared to other screens. The 206bw has a pixel pitch of .258.

That's the only model, I've heard debating between the S and A type. Never heard people, wondering about the other models. But don't take my word for it. I could be wrong.

So it's only 3 of them? 931, 206 and 226BW?

****... I wanted to get the 206 so bad... but now I know this.. I'm not risking it.

Is the 931bw another name for the 906bw? OMG, I HOPE NOT!!

I wouldnt worry about it, I ordered my 226bw from newegg, and it came without a letter even designating it a C or A or S panel. Its been 70 some days since I got it, and everything is perfect on it.

Agreed....and Samsung is top notch in LCDs, regardless of the model.

So are these like the best lcds ever made or something? And how do you tell if it is an A,S, or C before you order it?
