So we have to wait a whole week for feedback????????

I sure am hopeful for this unit as the pricing versus size is really attractive.
Thanks Chris.

So, the set will be reviewed on April Fool's Day!

good news indeed! The one and only item the wife has insisted on after seeing it on the news one night was that the new tv had to have Yahoo Widgets, glad to see those sets are finally starting to appear (and at a reasonable price no less)

be talking to you soon Chris

She is looking good SD looks much better than in the past Samsung plasma's. To me the Samsungs always seem a little grainy, they got rid of that problem too! More pictures to come.

Is there an upgraded version of this display featuring dcdi processor? There is a rumor going around. Can anyone shed some light on this?

Thanks.

Wait, only the 63" b550 has dcdi processor? What about the 50" and 58"?

OMG, don't let Omletpants see you say that - he always says the same thing about Panasonics

Oh, sure, post these AFTER I spend the money on the Kuro

They look good. The last picture does look grainy, but that could just be the source.

Has Samsung said anything about a b760 series plasma Tv in the USA ???? What is a DCDI processor ???

So you're kicking the 55" lcd to the curb? How do the black levels compare to the G10 and Samsung LED from what you have seen so far?

^^^ Panasonic TH-50PZ800U, Panasonic TC-P50G10, and the Samsung UN55B7100 are gone

This is a real nice set, Samsung made some major improvments. Blacks look about as good as the panasonic, we will see once Chad gets here.

There is only going to be 1 -- 63" Samsung this year I am told, PN63B550.

Chris, more than likely the sharpness or edge enhancement causes what you you. Instead of the default "50", mine is set at 36.

As for those pics, they show awesome black levels which also confirms what Samsung has said and what I've also seen.
Can you say Pio-who?

When I had my 550 I always thought if Samsung could drop the black levels, it would be a poor mans Kuro Elite. I'm wondering if that day has come.

Chris, does this have the 96Hz Cinema Smooth feature? Or is that only in the 6 series and up?

From the manual (available on Samsung's site):

Off: Basic video image processing applied and No auto-detection for film-based programs.
Auto: Automatically adjusts for the best image quality between film and video programs.
Cinema Smooth: Cinema Smooth reproduces film cinema video with greatly reduced or without visible motion judder, as you see it in the movie theater. (PN50B560T5F/PN58B560T5F/PN63B590T5F only)
Only if HDMI 1080p 24Hz signal is input, Cinema Smooth function is activated and you can set ON/OFF.
Film mode is supported in TV, Video, Component (480i / 1080i) and HDMI (1080i).

So what model is the PN63B590T5F ? I'm gathering that it is not the PN63B550 ? When will it be available?

Not questioning you, but why would the manual say otherwise? Are they coming out later? Is this something you could find out for us?
post #30 of 1613
What's the MSRP on this set? Also do the blacks match or surpass the 12G Pannys?
