Samsung beats Sony to market with 52-inch LCD

updated 04:00 pm EDT, Wed August 30, 2006

Samsung 52-inch LCD

Sony had much reason to celebrate earlier today when it announced its new 52-inch Bravia LCD. North American television buyers, however, will likely prefer the announcement by Samsung of a 52-inch LCD set of its own. The LN-S5296D shares the same 1080p panel as the new Sony unit and has an impressive claimed contrast ratio of 6000:1 as well as an 8ms response time. A 10-bit processor should deliver 12.8 billion colors while a Game Mode optimizes the panel for response time over absolute color accuracy. One VGA and two HDMI inputs exist to support digital video signals. The 52-inch Samsung is expected to sell for under $5000 when it ships to North America in September; the price places it above plasma models, but it may be better suited to computer and video game duties.
