New Samsung Tabletop DLP  

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Are there any pictures of the new tabletop 43" and 50" DLP TV's from Samsung? I thought all DLP TV's had to be either front or rear projection TV's. Are the new tabletop models similar to rear projection TV's without the base?

Here's the press release:

Dallas, Texas - 8th January 2002: Samsung Electronics America, Inc. (Samsung) and Texas Instruments (TI) (NYSE: TXN) today announced an agreement under the terms of which Samsung will introduce a new range of large-screen, tabletop TVs using DLPâ„¢ technology. Samsung will demonstrate pre-production units of its first products at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) at the Las Vegas Convention Center (January 8th - 11th) at TI booth #2015 and at the Samsung booth #657 (Central Hall). First shipments of a commercial product are expected in mid-2002.

The Samsung pre-production units feature screen sizes of 43" and 50" and are characterized by weights of just 75 lbs and 84 lbs and front-to-back footprints of only 15.7 and 18 inches, respectively. Other features include multiple widescreen format inputs, DVD progressive scan input, DVI digital interface for true digital connection, 15 pin D-sub computer input, and 3/2 pull down. Anticipated price for the 43" model is $3,999.99 (MSRP) and for the 50" model is $4,499.99 (MSRP).

Almost all the digital rear projection TV's (if not all) are table top. Usually they are shown with the optional $1000 stand.

I saw both the 50" and 43" units at the CES Show last January. The pictures looked a little soft but the cabinets, especially the 43", looked really smart. The plasmas still looked better than the DLP but they are double to triple the price also.

The plasmas are actually available for sale, however, unlike these DLPs.
