Danton, you're better off asking in this thread.

Sorry about that. It is a HLT model. I'll check out the link you gave me.

Thanks...

oh yeah sorry, i was using avs mobile from a smartphone and it didn't show his title, sorry.

Anyway, is there any new info on the other 67" models like the HLT6779?

The HLT6756 has been available at costco for a few weeks now but I dont really like how its in last years hls casing.

I like the looks of the HLT6779 from pictures
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/attac...chmentid=84485

better but dont know when where or if its coming out or any other info about it or how it compares to the hlt6756.

i'm assuming its a higher end 67" model then the hlt6756 but have no info. i thin there was a nother 67" model listed for the 2007 Samsung dlp models as well but dont know anything about that either.

Samsung just told me that the HL-T6779 has been delayed until 2008 with no specific date.

In the 76S thread, BigMacK1311 mentioned he saw the following FAQ on Samsung's Web site, which I was able to verify.

HL-T5689S
HL-T5089S

Assuming that is correct, that means the info. on the 1st page of this thread is incorrect, since the 76S-series TVs apparently do not have HDMI 1.3.

I just bought the HL-T5676S. When I view non-high def channels with DirecTV in 4:3 format, there are grey bars on the side. I used to have a Mitsubishi DLP and the bars were black. The grey is quite distracting. Does anyone know how to make them black so they simply blend in with the background. Thanks.

I'm sure you can. To find out how, ask in the owner's thread for your TV.

I forgot I'm still subscribed to this thread. I'm going to unsubscribe b/c I finally bought an HDTV: Mitsubishi WD-57734 (57" DLP). Good luck to your Samsung TVs. It was nice reading about their DLPs for the past couple years. I hope to get good life out of my Mitsubishi before I need to research HDTVs again.

I was going to ask the same.

I've been considering the A3000 or the HT-T6176S. However, this new Darkchip 4 supposedly increases contrast ratio levels. I'm just wondering if I should just wait.

I was considering a Sammy plasma...then I discovered DLP. But I`m a noob...and can`t seem to find this info. Looking at a HL-t5087s and I`m impressed with the specs. But how does it do with 720p and 1080i programming (i.e. Comcast)..and (not to mention) sd programming? I`m about 10 feet from the set, and it`s on 15 hours a day. Pleeeez chime in guys!

Both 720p and 1080i broadcast programming looks great on the xx87s, and SD sources look as good as can be expected. Once you been exposed to HD broadcasts, you get spoiled quickly. The xx87s series combined with a good HD DVD player is awesome. Use the display with a Oppo 980H player with your SD-DVD collection and be amazed.

John..have you ever owned a plasma? Do you own the 87? I wonder how they compare! I`ve never owned either. I`m a virgin to HD. The hd dvd is in the works...but I`m wrestling with the plasma vs dlp first.

I'm lucky enough to have multiple conference rooms set up where I work with Pioneer Plasma's so have lot of exposure on how they compare versus a Samsung HLT-6189s I have at home.

The smaller Plasma's are quite reasonable now up to 46" but then get more expensive as you go towards 60". Pioneer Elite ($$) is still the best Plasma out there, with Panasonic coming in second. But comparing say a 61" LED DLP cost to a 60" Plasma, it evident that large plasma's are much more expensive then the latest LED DLP's.

Picture quality the Plasma has a wonderful soft look (film like), where as the DLP has sharper look, but not as harsh as a LCD flat panel. Brightness with the Plasma gradually gets dimmer but it's half brightness life point is like 60,000 hours now on some models. The LED DLP's stay about the same brightness most of their life, currently +100,000 hours.

Powerwise a large 50" Plasma consumes a lot of watts, runs hot, and weighs quite a bit (150 lbs) . YOu have to contend with image burn in with Plasma's. With DLP's a few people can still see rainbows. Note most RPD (DLP/LCOS) have a reduced vertical viewing angle typically +/- 30 degrees compare to Plasma. Usually this isn't a problem but you should be aware of it.

The LED DLP consumes about half the power on larger sizes compared to a Plasma, weight is about 75-90 lbs depending on model.

You need a strong wall mount or stand to support a large plasma, a small plasma say 46" is a lot easier to wall mount. The xx87s/xx89s series of Samsung are about 15.4" deep and you stick them on a table up about 20" from the floor.

You can put a great DLP next to a great Plasma and get a comparable picture quality. Your biggest decision is what size screen you want, viewing distance you utilize, whether you want it mounted on a wall or want it on a table or stand. 1080P Plasmas 42" and 46" are quite reasonable, go larger and you have to consider LED DLP's for value.

John ..thanks for your insights. I`ve been doing alot of online research on the plasmas..but just "discovered" the DLPs yesterday. I`m primarily concerned in the PQ comparison b/w the two technologies. I see you`re in the bay area too...maybe you have comcast as I do. And I know most of their programming is 720p/1080i and sd, so I wondered how the LED-DLP technology handles those formats in comparison to the plasmas. I..am..impressed with what I`ve read so far re the LED-DLP sets. I just wanted to get some tech savvy user input..especially someone like yourself who has personal experience with both products. All the hype recently seems to be heavily skewed towards LCD and plasma, so I wanted to make sure I wasn`t barking up the wrong tree. I`m sitting 8-10 feet away from the tv..and it`ll be placed on a low stand..about 18" high. I`m looking at the 50" and 56".

So then..you do consider the LED-DLP 5087 a "great" DLP..and it`ll hold it`s own (pq-wise)next to most comparably priced plasmas?

PS..one thing the reviewer at Cnet said was that this model didn`t handle the 2:3 pulldown very well. Can you (or anyone) speak to that? TIA...

Current firmware (1028) for xx87s series handles 1080p@24fps just fine.

Initially I recall there were some issues of with early firmware versions (<1025) discussed concerning Samsung xx87s series where there were problems trying to use 1080p@24fps. The xx89s series I don't believe ever had any 1080p@24fps issues.

Check the comments on Amazon (or as some call big river). Do a search on Samsung HLT5687SAX. I'd go with the 56" at 8-10 feet, 18" is prefect, because of 2.35:1 ratio movies.

xx87s current 2007 LED DLP model, xx87sax I believe was rumored to be a mfg revision with updated lens ring to prevent possibility of halo. The xx87w is a 2006 1080P arc bulb DLP display.

Thanks again John..I think I`ve talked myself into getting the 5687sax. Btw..does this unit have a swivel and/or tilting stand? Might there be an aftermarket such thing?

Happy Thanksgiving!
