New Samsung plasmas, DLPs

Continuing their announcements, Samsung is rolling out several new plasma and DLP sets for 2007. The plasma sets will come in 50 (HP-T5084) and 58-inch (HP-T5884, HP-T5894W) sizes and employ the company's FilterBright2 Plus technology, which absorbs external light without impeding the internal source. Samsung also claims 1080p support for all models, as well as a 10,000:1 contrast ratio, built-in ATSC/NTSC tuners, and three HDMI 1.3 inputs. USB 2.0 inputs can be used to display photos. The T5894W will expand on these features with RS-232, a 9-in-2 card reader and 802.11n wireless, enabling certain media sources to connect without cables. The T5084 will cost $4,199 and ship in May; the T5884 and T5894W will ship in September and cost $5,199 and $5,699 respectively.

The new DLP TVs will come in 50- (HL-T5087S), 56- (HL-T5687S) and 61-inch (HL-T6187S) sizes and use a single-chip engine, eliminating the need for a color wheel. The DLPs will also have three HDMI ports and 1080p support, but will distinguish themselves from the plasmas by having a "Game Mode," which should enable better sound and response for console systems. RS-232 and ATSC/QAM tuners will be included on each set. All three DLPs will go on sale in April for $2,399, $2,799, and $3,199.
