Executive Overview

Samsung has decided to take a huge leap forward with their LCDs with their launch of their new line of LED backlit panels. Designated with a "B" in the model number rather than an "A," look for these to be available in the early part of 2009. Generally ranging from 40" to 55", they all feature extreme contrast ratios, ultra slim designs (even with tuners included) and tons of extras. The top of the line 8000 series features 240Hz processing, chrome stylings, built in Ethernet connection and wireless-ready capabilities, and response times matching CRT displays (or so they claim).

Samsung is refocusing their attention on the "LED TV" (which obviously is really an LED backlit LCD) as their push for 2009. That means that all you Audioholics will have on more thing to explain to your less tech-savvy friends. LED backlighting does have a few advantages including much greater contrast ratios (since you can turn them off effectively making the contrast ratio infinity), it allows for very slim designs (great preparation for competition with the sure to be more expensive OLEDs on the horizon), and Eco-friendly operation. LED backlit LCDs consume less power than their similarly sized traditional LCDs and are mercury free. For more information please contact www.samsung.com.

Note the "XX" in the model numbers below will be replaced with the size - so the 55" 8000 model would be LN55B800.

Just wondering how many of you know that the Samsung LED backlighting is actually only around the edges of the panel? Sharp are currently the only ones selling an LED backlit display that is full array backlit? I have seen the Samsung but not the Sharp so I don't know how much difference that makes. Just an FYI.
