Samsung Early 2007 Plasmas

Samsung on Tuesday expanded its plasma TV line with three new systems beyond those announced at CES. The 63-inch 63P71FHD, 50-inch 50Q92HD, and 42-inch 42Q92HD are all drastically improved for viewing even in mid-day. The Korean firm boasts a 50 percent jump in contrast ratio to 15,000:1 for better image quality regardless of conditions; a Daylight Filter layer passively reduces glare, and an Ultra Daylight Mode actively adjusts the picture to look its best in daytime.

Though the 42-inch and 50-inch models reach only 720p, the 63-inch model is capable of a full 1080p resolution and is rare for sporting a Bluetooth adapter to connect to wireless headphones or compatible printers. Pricing and exact availability are unknown for the initial Korean launch, though these models are likely to appear in the US at a later point with minor changes.
