Samsung's New Led Light Dlp @ 1080p

Recommended Posts

Samsung is finally shipping its HL-S5679W LED-based 50-inch rear-projection HDTV.

estimating the LED unit will last 20,000 hours

4,000:1 contrast ratio, HDMI input, a CableCard slot, an ATSC tuner (USA release)

LED technology is also supposed to eliminate the "color wheel" effect of banding and patterns

uses an array of 18 LEDs instead of a standard mercury-bearing UHP lamp to power the rear-projection TV

Guess the question now is:

When is it released in Australia?

How Much?

HDMI 1.3 equipped?

More to the point, is it any better then conventional DLP designs for picture quality?

When I spoke to Samsung about a 1month ago there were no plans to release them in Australia in the forseeable future.

Great question, I also would like to know the answer to this.

From what i've read and heard it's miles ahead.

No Rainbows.

Apparently 20,000 lamp life too.

Ahead in some ways (rainbows), potentially worse in others (colour).

We will have to wait and see what the overall result will be.

Personally, I don’t care about lamp life improvements if performance is compromised.

We will most likely be paying for that extra lamp life up front in higher purchase price.

There are no rainbows on the majority of the top quality DLP's right now ... Rainbow effect is way overdone ..

If you are only buying to avoid rainbow, you're worrying about a non-issue !

*picks up post and dusts off*

I've been researching a fair bit and considered LCD, Plasma, Projector (DLP & LCD). I really don't like the "computer monitor" look of the plasmas and LCD's and much prefer the softer "cinematic look" of the projectors - not trying to offend anyone - just personal taste. But I want a big screen TV replacement and projectors just don't really work for that (light issues etc). So I got thinking about rear projection but the lamp life issue ($$$) still worries me - then I found these - the LED Engine Widescreen DLP HDTV's.

The Samsung aint out in Oz yet (plus it is BLOODY HUGE) but there is mention on various sites about Akai doing one in the 42" range that is priced very reasonably at US$1799. Anyone know anyone with contacts at Akai to see if they will be appearing in Oz? Or have they?
