Just experienced the Samsung 55" led 3d tv and was blown away. It was in Jbhifi bondi junction i got the salesmen to turn off the downlights around the tv and it makes a massive difference! Before he turned off the lights it looked blurry and the picture quality was crap. Also the tv was at a low height so i had to squat down directly infront of the tv with the lights off to really appreciate the 3d effect. But when i did it was unreal, i wasn't interested in the 3d tvs before but will definitely purchase one now.

Because the led tvs use lcd panels viewing angle is a big factor also the lights ruin the experience, so plasma should be the bees knees! Looking forward to samsungs plasma lineup!

Do the Sammy's have sound outputs that will drive a speaker bar or do you still need to run it through an AVR?

According to http://www.samsung.com/au/consumer/tv-audi...&fullspec=F the PS63C7000 has digital audio out (optical) so you can use a soundbar that takes optical input and that should be fine.

Some soundbars need an AVR, so you will need to find one that does not require an AVR.

I just downloaded the manual for the PS63C7000 and the weight of the set is in the document.

I compared it to the 2009 PS63B680 and found quite a difference:

PS63B680 (2009) - 63" plasma

Set weight with stand 60.6kg

Set weight without stand 52.9kg

1531 x 932 x 74mm

PS63C7000 (2010) - 63" plasma

Set weight with stand 44.6kg

Set weight without stand 38kg

1498 x 911 x 36mm

That's a pretty significant drop in weight, and the thickness has halved!

WOW! Quite a difference there... Any comparisons of energy consumption between the 2?

I'm interested in energy comsumption as well but the manual doesn't contain that info and the websites still state TBD for energy consumption apart from standby.

2009 PS63B680 Stand-by Power Consumption < 1W

2010 PS63C7000 Stand-by Power Consumption < 0.3 watt

PS63C7000, and they've told me "the first two weeks of May" but that's sounding a bit hopeful now. Fingers crossed.

Samsung just say 2010 model can save 43% energy consumption than 2009 model!!!!

The 2009 63" model stats are:

Operation power consumption 560W

Typical Power Consumption 390W

So 43% less would be:

Operation power consumption 392W

Typical Power Consumption 273W

Please take a look the pic (because I can see chinese)...you can see 43% power save in the pic........

But this wasn't available in HK?

If you buy in China can you get the warranty if you use it in HK?

Yes have not in HK...

Both AU and China....no .warranty in HK..I need to send it back to repair....

So It is the same for me......I already compare this two side Including shipping delivery.....58 Au pay more AUS 300-~~~63 AU save AUS 500.

The thickness and weight drop were impressive also.

The power figures aren't confirmed due to just being approx 43% lower than 2009. Hopefully we will get actual figures soon.

No the power figures are not confirmed... not by a long shot. If you read this Samsung page under "Green works in any room" it says:

"Samsung Plasma TV are easy on the planet as well as the eyes. Our 2009 Energy Star-Compliant Plasma TV use 70% less power than last year’s models and are made with eco-friendly materials."

Confusing seeing as the page is about the new 2010 model but refers to power saving of the 2009 model against the previous model. Why can't they just put a damn number on it.

Edit: Spelling

I dont really care about the extra 2 inches. Its the picture quality. Is there going to be a difference in the pic quality between the 2 models?

guys what is contrast ratio: Mega DCR???

also, the all share feature which offers wireless connection to the home network, does that mean I watch all video formats off the home network ?

Well in that case definitely get the Sammy. I have always owned Pana's (6 of their plasma's to be exact) I went to HN Woodville to look at 3d again and noted a

58v10 pana next to 2009 series 6 Sammy 63". I calibrated both sets. The lights were dimmed down for the 3d promo's.

I couldn't believe my eyes the 63 Sammy looked substantially sharper than the 58 Pana.

I have already ordered a 63 Sammy 7000 approx 3 weeks ago,
