They’re not quite at flat-panel levels, but the new LED engine DLP offerings from Samsung are all about slim and sleek.
The company announced this week the industry’s first slim depth DLP TVs that are LED light-source based, an HDTV line that is now available in three large-screen sizes—50 (HL-T5087S), 56 (HL-T5687S) and 61 (HL-T6187S) inches.
The LED light engine provides for a long-lasting and stable light output over the TV’s lifespan as it delivers contrast ratio of 10,000:1 and superior brightness with its 1080p high-def imagery, the company says. Aesthetically, the line features a depth of 12.8 to 14.4 inches, an ultra-slim bezel of just .6 inches and a piano black cabinet.
Samsung’s Slim DLP models also include Game Mode with a faster response time and enhanced graphics to please the gaming enthusiasts, as well as three HDMI inputs for connection versatility. It also has a USB connection with photo viewer and a PC-input.
Estimated selling prices for the line are: $2,299 (50 inch); $2,599 (56 inch); and $2,999 (61 inch).
