I take that to mean the C8000 because the C9000 is not due till the fall and the C7000/6500 aren't 240Hz:

EDIT: it seems it might indeed include the C9000 because they are talking about SIX 3D 240Hz panels.....two each in 40, 46 and 55 inch sizes

The company began producing LED and LCD compatible panels for 40-inch, 46-inch and 55-inch full-HD 3D TVs using ‘3D Active Glasses’ this month, employing Samsung’s exclusive true 240Hz technology.

Samsung’s true 240Hz technology delivers full-HD viewing in 2D, and also smooth, natural, full-HD 3D images that can vividly capture rapid movements.

By incorporating true 240Hz technology, operating at 240 frames per second, Samsung’s panels deliver a more lifelike picture with alternating left and right eye images through the use of 3D Active Glasses technology.

Samsung has reduced the response time of its LCD and LED panels by 20 percent to less than four milliseconds, eliminating any interference between left and right eye images. With this improved response time, Samsung is able to achieve natural 3D images and also deliver 2D pictures capturing rapid movement with exceptional clarity.

Also of note is the fact the C8000 series are the only TVs announced that include Samsung "Seamess Dimming Technology"(C9000/7000/6500 all strictly use traditional edge LED lighting) which, they claim, combines the form factor of edge lit, with PQ that rivals full array backlight local dimming (their words not mine)

I am guessing these TVs will start arriving on the market march/april timeframe

I believe Samsung has purposely neglected distribution dates and pricing specifics during CES so as minimize impact on existing inventory in the distribution channel.

Digitimes confirms production began January and there are several important events on the horizon in the near term which includes the 2010 Lunar New Year in Asia Feb 14, 2010 and globally the Winter Olympics and then a few months later we have the World Cup.

Would be nice to see Samsung make some kind of jump beyond 55" LED though as we have Sony going with 60" via Sharp panels and Sharp jumping to a 68"/60", Toshiba 65" Cell TV, and Vizio's future monster 72". I wouldn't be surprised to see Samsung rebadging the 65" from AUO which is announced LED 3D - I believe AUO is the source of Toshiba's 65" Cell TV since Sharp is moving away from 65" in LED version anyways.

Samsung 65F8000, 60D8000, 40HU6350, Panasonic 50E60 LCD's

So are you saying it could be as soon as next month when we see the new 3D TVs??


That would be nice because I will be in the market for a 3D TV by June of this year and the 55C8000 was one of the ones I have my eyes on....(others being the Panasonic 58VT25 and Samsung 58C8000 plasma)

It was my dark horse because LED LCDs from Samsung are pretty expensive but if it comes out in Feb. that would give it a few months on the marketplace for prices to calm down a little bit (hopefully)


Also, I notice they said SIX 3D TVs are being produced implying the C8000 TVs and one other series of tvs.....


The only possibilities are the C750, but I think the biggest set is the 52C750 and they mention 55 inch screens.....

So all that's left is.....the C9000 which I *THOUGHT* wasn't coming out until much later in the year but maybe not....

the C7000/6500 are out because the press release mentions 240Hz specifically.....

65" Sets are already confirmed by Samsung.
I guess Super Bowl could be a nice time to give away more information as Samsung is the official NFL partner.

Just the official press release which claims "LED Sets from 19" to 65" - and if you google for 65C8000 (because the 8000 series will be the only one in this size) you will find already a lot of listings. But still no tech details.
