I like the looks of the hls6779 better from the early pics but only hls 67'' on samsung site so far is the hls 6756 which costco is getting and apparently now has. its going on sale in august or at least with the coupon in booklet mailed to members though I never got it.
I recently ordered a hls6187 led slim dlp for another room and really wanted to try a diff brand and tech to have some variety preferably a jvc lcos but 70'' though I found a great deal for $2395 the stand was 500 and I couldn't find it anywhere else really for less so I said forget it. good thing too because the jvc doesn't do 1080p over component or vga supposedly so I'm sticking with samsung especially for use with xbox 360 it seems to be the best.
plus I really didn't want another even huger rp set that is tough to move to diff room, return or sell. even though these rp microdisplays aren't as big as cr the 67 and 70 in. ones are still like 20'z deep and overall huge.
costco has the jvc super slim (not as thin as plasma or flat lcd but thinner then samsungs ''slim'' and ''ultra slim'' dlps) and wall mountable lcos. 58'' is too small for me though so I'm waiting for the 65'' version to come out. its delayed but supposed to be by the end of july.
I really wanted 65'' for basement but only 65s for rp sets are dlp like toshiba or olevia lcos which was rated last I think on home theatre mag 2007 roundup while samsung was 1 and jvc 2.
so now that I got 61'' for basement I could maybe drop to 65'' for the slimness of the jvc in that size. so ill wait till that comes out and decide between that and the sam hlt6756.
speaking of lesser cabinet depth, all the new samsung are I think, the non led being called ultra slim with with a slight less deep and squarish non sloping back hile the led are just ''slim dlp'' not ultra slim though I don't know how they call it ultra when its not nearly as thin as jvc's slim line lcos. rumor they might having problems with them and why 65'' version is delayed. as well even the 58'' has some geometry problems.
point is I wonder if the hlt6756 is slimmer? samsung site has specs on it? hls6767 is like 19 something inches. so if the hlt6756 is less that's an improvement but what else is new added or improved on the hlt6756 from the hls6767? seems like nothing really and I don't like the hlt6756 casing plus I think its basically same as the hlt6187 I'm already getting. I like the hls6767 floating casing better and the pic of hlt6779 which has a new diff casing from most other hlt models though I think I saw pic of a couple othe hlt models with the same casing as hlt6756.
free stand though with costco model really helps. I got hls6767 for 2500 during a 1-2 week sale and it never went back down that low. the 70'' jvc never dropped below 3k that I saw bit had stand and best I found recently was 2395 plus 500 for stand so didn't do it and glad I didn't do that or the jvc 61fh97 either cus the jvc doesn't do 1080p over component or vga. samsung I think is only one with 1080p over component and its nice feature that comes in handy sometimes.
if hlt6756 is less deep the hls6767 that will interesting good news so someone verify the hlt6756 depth compared to hls6767's 19 something inches.
supposedly no led model above 61'' this year but the 67 is next size up so maybe next year.
I wonder when the hlt6779 which I like the looks of better or the other 2 supposed samsung 67'' models besides hlt6756 are coming out though not interested in the 720p one, so really just the hlt6779 and the other 1080p 67'' hlt model mentioned earlier in this thread.
going to be a pain to return sell or exchange the hls6767 for hlt6756 but I'd have to rent truck to pick up the hlt6756 anyway.
most likely going to choose between costco models so right now would be between the 65'' super slim jvc lcos if it ever comes out and the hlt6756. unless costco gets another 70'' jvc but I don't think they made new reg depth jvc this year just the 58'' super slim one.
jvc must hate samsung taking all their business and calling new dlps slim and ultra slim when they not even close to as thin as the jvc let alone wall mountable.
great news though that hlt6756 is out. now lets get the HxWxD spec among others especially the depth
