Warranty not valid in canada...? Well, that just blew the wind outa my sails ( to say the least ). Like having a home without fire insurance. If it never burns down, you saved a bundle, but the day it does...well.....
Thanks a zillion Neil for a job well done.......

This grown man is goin over to the sad bar & pop a cold one.....

Regards.........:(

Has it been confirmed if these HD3's will ship w/ 7-segment color wheels?

What other benefits is there beyond the HLN/HLM's?

1. Higher contrast (1500 vs. 1000:1)
2. Dark chip and Smooth picture
3. Same weight and dimensions?
4. Discrete codes for sure...
5. Different color bezel?

I am confused. In another thread you say:

"I'm waiting on the answere concerning the Sammy Warranty. According to Neil Kusens at TVauthority ( who is putting the Power Buy together along with Samsung ) in California, the warranty should be valid here in canada. The extended warranty is another question."

I was under the impression you were checking on this. Are you not? If not, I will take a look at it.

Thanks

That depends on your definition of confirmed. Samsung "claims" through their representatives that the HLPxx63 sets will ship with seven element color wheels.

What other benefits is there beyond the HLN/HLM's?
...
3. Same weight and dimensions?


The HLP sets will not be as deep by about 2.5". That shouldn't make much difference in the weight.

5. Different color bezel?
We shall see when the bezels come marching into the showrooms. :)
The color wheel should produce better detail in dark scenes and reduce dithering.

edazell........

I was checking out the warranty. But Neil just confirmed that the warranty will not be honoured here in canada.
So......... theres no more checking to do... Its not Neil's fault. Its the manufacturers call.........
I'm dissapointed, but them there is da rules.......... :(

The dimensions seem to have slightly changed: In the digiupdate (link below), it lists the (formerly Tantus) HLP4674W – 46” model with the HD2+ chip, 3000:1 contrast, DarkChip2, etc., at these dimensions: 40.6”(W) x 30.0”(H) x 16.1”(D), 73.9 lbs.

http://www.digiupdate.com/105_DLP_RP...l#_Toc62794047

The digiupdate link does not list the dimensions for the HLP4663W HD3, which is available today through TVA and the power buy, but TVA's website specs it out at 43.1 x 32.0 x 13.3 (W x H x D). This appears to be 2.5" wider than the past 46" model, and certainly wider than the info from digiupdate for the HD2+ model coming out in few months...

Does this sound accurate? I have exactly 40.8" in my entertainment center, so if the info is true, I will hold off for the HLP4674W (my original preference anyway). It would seem odd that models coming out in the same year would vary in width dimensions, so am I totally confused? If either/all Sammy 46" sets are due to be wider, I better start looking at other manufacturers.

And to think I read through all 892 posts on the original Power Buy thread -- did I just get bitch slapped?

Gumbo

You just missed the part where people call the 73/77 series the "Tantus" models (i.e. thin bezel models). The "non-Tantus" will have the thicker bezel and therefore be wider. (i.e. the HD2+ should work fine for you.)

Right. :)

The information in Arun's web pages is probably somewhat out of date. He hasn't been around to update it for a couple of months.

Wide bezel = HLPxx63 sets @ 46", 50", 56" and 61".

Thin bezel = HLPxx77 sets @ 46" and 56". Samsung says that they will no longer refer to these sets as Tantus models.

All the HLP table top sets seem to be about 2.5" thinner front to back.

If you don't keep your eye on the ball at all times you may miss several models. :rolleyes:
post #39 of 3592
Wait, even the 63 series sets will be 2.5" thinner? That would be cool if so.

Anyway, a poster up top asked about other improvements, besides the 7 segment wheel and various internal updates to help make the picture nicer and reduce artifacts, with the HLP both of the component inputs will accept all video modes, and they have essentially 2 DVI inputs (one DVI and one HDMI, which is DVI compatable).
post #40 of 3592
Will all the HLPs have the flat top that a speaker can sit on, or just the thin bezel versions?

(I apologize if this has already been asked.)

By thinner he meant depth wise - the sets are roughly the same width (left to right) as the HLN models, just not as deep. So the 77 series ("Tantus") is still thinner than the 63 series right to left.

Neil:

From what I have read, both the manufacturer's warranty AND the extended warranty are both not valid in Canada.

Can you please confirm this? If it is the case, it may be a good idea to edit the first PB post to reflect that... Thanks!

Neil confirmed that in post#21
post #44 of 3592
Neil,

I want to get in on the Power Buy, but have somewhat of a unique situation. I currently live in a small apartment, but am building a home. The home is supposed to be done by the end of this month, but you can never know this for sure if you are building a home. If everything works out perfectly, then there will be no problems (i.e. I order now and the TV does not ship for 4-6 weeks at which time my new home will be done and the tv is shipped there). What I don't want to happen is for my home to not be done and for the TV to have to be shipped to my apartment and then have to move it again. Plus, it wouldn't fit in my current apartment anyway and the shippers would have to carry it up two flights of stairs. My question to you is, can I order now and if my home is not complete by the time the tv ships, can you hold the tv until the home is complete?

Thanks in advance!

They don't weigh that much. I believe that they are all under 100 lbs.

Thanks Rick, I missed that in the myriad of posts/threads on the powerbuy topic.

I was also looking for confirmation that the extended warranty was also not valid, i.e. could Canadians forego Samsung's warranty and jump right into coverage from another provider?

Doubtful, but I'm curious...
post #47 of 3592
Were all curious......... but doubtful is the right word...

Our bubble just broke........ :mad:
post #48 of 3592
I am going to phone Samsung Canada this week and see what they say. THen I will find a company to do the extended warrenty through.
post #49 of 3592
thanx
post #50 of 3592
Is a replacement bulb covered by either the samsung warrantee or your extended warrantee? Also, the techcraft stand for the 56" Sammie appears to have no shelves - just the base - is that true? Any way to judge the look of the stand and the Sammie in terms of color-match and size match?

Thanks!! My first powerbuy (and my first Sammie)
post #51 of 3592
I was really hoping for a 70 series/HD2+/Tantus, but at the risk of missing the great powerbuy I might have to compromise and buy the 63 series.

TV Authority,
(Thanks for this amazing deal).
I know you can't commit to a powerbuy for the other models (since Samsung hasn't commited to ship dates & volumes), but once you do get pricing and ship dates would you consider a powerbuy for the 70 series/HD2+/Tantus models?

Thanks

I know that this is directed to Neil, but I am in the same boat as you. Our house will be done by the end of this month or first week in July. I asked Neil about shipping to a future address and he said no problem, that they call and confirm an address before delivery. Also, I believe I have read in another post(s) that you can be pushed back on the list if you are not ready to buy or for it to be delivered. Neil might be able to clarify more details, but this should give you an idea of what options you have.
post #53 of 3592
htwaits... long time lerker, newby poster... thanks for all the info over
the last 2 years. You, rogo and arun are underpaid... (I know, there
are other good posters too, but I remember you guys the best).

Regarding your last post to the earlier thread on this topic i.e.

Now there is just one of us.

There are at least 2 of us left (only 2? haha)... I would love to know your
top 3 issues which (theoretically) stop you from buying a Sammy DLP in
2004.

For me, there are only a few things left:
- I need to actually see a HLP6163, to see if/how much the near-black
detail has improved and to get my hands on the remote for a bit.
- I want some detailed information about discrete code capabilities in the
HLP 63 series (what features can/can't be controlled using a Pronto).

To my eye, the recent HLN 56/61" look pretty d**n good, but some of the
small stuff is still just too anoying given the $$$. I have been able to
control myself so far, but the powerbuy makes it sooooo harddddd.

Anyway, if you had 3 wishes and applied them to the Sammy DLP what
would they be?

Tnx

I'd like to know this too. Anyone know the answer to this?

I'd guess I would like to see Samsung publish the tech specs and manual on the HLP5063W since it probably on the ship to the USA by now.

There is NOTHING that will stop me from buying in 2004. Well, almost nothing. :rolleyes:

1. Killer competition from other companies.
2. Better detail in dark scenes and better "contrast/depth" in bright scenes -- as advertised.
3. No hint of audio/video sync problems -- as advertised.
post #57 of 3592
The new Toshibas have the HD2+ chip and cost several hundred $$ less than the Sammys. They start shipping in August. Maybe there should be a Toshiba power buy instead?
post #58 of 3592
We might expect some price cuts from Sammy later this summer. In the press release regarding the 1080 DLP set they also mention planned promotions later in the year as the new higher end sets hit the market...at which time many new DLP sets will be hitting the market from others as well.

post #59 of 3592
Everyone should go back and read the original post and FOLLOW-UP from Neil. It seems clear to me that they would very much like to offer a PowerBuy on the HD2+ sets as soon as Samsung releases enough details to confirm prices and expected ship dates. Just be patient. There isn't any risk of missing the 63 series PowerBuy...Neil said it will remain open through the end of July...you have at least 2 months to get in.
