Samsung DLP Model #s

I'm interested in buying a Samsung DLP 56", but can't get a handle on the various model #s - can anyone help?

From what I've seen the following are documented on Samsung's .ca and .com websites - but the manuals are extremely limited in differentiating the following:

HL-R5662 - CDN$2,799 (appx. USD$2,380)
HL-R5667 - USD$2,999
HL-R5668 - USD$3,999
HL-R5677 - USD$3,499
HL-R5678 - USD$3,999
HL-R5688 - USD$4,999

My best guess is the 'R' is the generation.
The '56' is the screen size
Any ideas on the last two digits?

There's a huge variation on price, but I can't figure out why.

Here's what I got from a competing forum, which has information based on manufacturer:

62 series: ???
67 series: 1280x720, TI HD4 (?), Gen 720p, 7 seg wheel, 2000:1, table top
68 series: 1920x1080, TI xHD4, Gen5 light, 7 seg wheel, 10000:1, table top
77 series: ???
78 series: 1920x1080, TI xHD4, Gen 5 light, 7 seg wheel, 10000:1, table top
87 series: 1280x720, TI HD2+, Gen 720p, 7 seg week, 2500:1, pedestal
88 series: 1920x1080, TI xHD3, Gen5 light, 7 seg wheel, 5000:1

Any help to correct or add information is appreciated. This way we all have better information to go shopping with.

77 series is also the HD2+ chip, but it's still got a 6 segment wheel I think...
