New Samsung LED TV series..


Hi,
Has anyone had a chance to demo the new series of samsung LED TVs??

With sharper images and brighter colours-TV will never be the same. UA40B6000VR - LED TV - Television | SAMSUNG

Why are they so costly? Whats so special? How do they compare with LCDs? Will the price come down in near future?

Thanks,

Re: New Samsung LED TV series..

Its still an LCD tv. Its just that the backlight has changed from CCFL to LEDs. The new ones just launched by Samsung use LEDs lined up along the edge of the screen and special light pathways to transmit light to each part of the screen. The backlight is not locally dimmable (unlike the higher models which have LEDs directly behind the screen).

From what I saw at the store, the colours were more saturated and the set "popped" out very strongly compared to other LCDs. It was like a tv on steroids. Dynamic contrast is very high (but native contrast remains low).

The tv looks beautiful as its very thin and has a nice frame.

B6000 was available for 1,12,000 in 40" and 1,33,000 in 46".

Re: New Samsung LED TV series..

well the prices will become less .well why are they expensive they have greater brightness which may have a effect on contrast,the thin factor,the power efficiency factor and its a new technology.

Re: New Samsung LED TV series..

I viewed the LED series from Samsung and must say found the clarity much better then the other LCD's. Also understand its one of the most eco friendly tv on earth so hence may be the cost factor. But LED is the way forward and very soon other players will launch this in the market. Already Sony and Philips have launched their versions in bigger screen size.

well yes led are the future,but the LED in sony are backlight and are local dimming leds and further more they are RGB leds,the ones in the samsung are EDGElight LEDs and cannot do local dimming,the local dimming samsuns are the upcoming 9000 series of LUXIA tvs.

Re: New Samsung LED TV series..

Is it wise to wait for an year or two and get hold of one of these instead of getting an LCD TV today (assuming I already have an CRT and am comfortable with it except for the aspect ratio part) ?

The LED TVs defineletly look better but Iam not able to justify if they are worth 2 times (yes! double) the cost of the similarly speced LCD TV today. Will the gap narrow down in the near future? (The LCDs have become half their original price in the last 2-3 years..)

My worry is LCDs becoming obselete withing 2-3 years of buying them, being replaced by LEDs.. Can someone comment?

well these tvs are infact lcds,they only have a LED backlight/edgelight,so the performance difference compared to normal lcds is minimal,but when u compare them to local dimming led lcds then there will be a significant difference in performance.the major benefit of led backlight is in the power consumption and the thiness of of tv.
even these tvs will be obselete when OLED tvs hit mass productions currently a 11inch OLED costs well over a lakh.

but lcds will keep on improving going by the trend in contrast ratio they increase by around 40%* every year ,all lcd tvs in future will have full motion resolution and the next step is 3d technolgy by using special goggles to see movies in 3d with a 3d source.so they will keep on improving irrespective of LED or normal CCFL backlight.

Re: New Samsung LED TV series..

Don't bet on future technology. It's expected as of now that the future will be LED, OLED, AMOLED, but no one can say for sure that LCD will go. The thing is such technology is controlled by the manufacturers and they will not let go of an old technology and replace it with a newer technology until and unless they've made a profit from the existing technology and money recouped on its R&D. For instance Intel already has technology that it will release in 2020, but it's not going to release it now. Not until it makes its profit from dual core and quad core. Even replacement for Blu-Ray is here, but after the expensive war between HD-DVD and Blu-Ray all want to make profits first before even thinking about introducing newer/better/replacement technology. That's how the industry works. It's not always the better products and technologies that sell or run. It's a closed/controlled market and with CRTs being phased out all will be forced to go for LCD or plasma since nothing else is available.

My recommendation is if you're happy with your CRT then yeah wait. Or else pick something cheap but with great quality like the PV8. As things stand today in a couple of years LED and its various acronyms are supposed to take over and LCD and plasma phased out, but no one knows except the manufacturers and they do control everything.

BTW, I have a plasma, an LCD and 3 CRTs at home and all of my main TV watching including the IPL is done on a 29" CRT. It absolutely kicks everyone/everything else (i.e. LCDs and plasmas) in terms of PQ. So if you're happy with CRT then stay put. You will have more and better options in 2 years.

Re: New Samsung LED TV series..

if you think you can be comfortable with CRT, why do you think you will be outdated with an LCD TV?
I have kept myself out of TV upgrade loop for now. Instead, I went for a projector for ~60k that gives me a huge picture and I watch movies on it. In my bedroom I have a 29 inch decently styled 29" CRT (which a few people confuse with LCD!) and I am ok with that.

regards

As Adder mentioned, we are not saying that LED will replace LCD. These new TVs are LCD TVs. LED is just the light source behind the screen.

Thanks,
Sharad
