Apparently, the HL-S5679 is wobulated. See this comment on the Engadget post. Also unnoticed is the fact that the color-wheel sets have RGBCMY 6-color wheels.
I was really hoping for no wobulation ...
17. I'm a DLP employee at CES at the moment and thought I'd set things straight a bit on the Samsung and LED DLP in general.
Samsung's LED TV here is in fact wobulated -- it's the same 1080p chip used in all the DLP 1080p sets on the market at the moment, although this is in fact true 1080p of course. I know there's some idealogical objection out there to SmoothPicture, but honestly I believe it makes a better picture. To me it looks like more like smooth film. Non-SmoothPicture does make sense in our projectors where computer graphics are more the norm.
On the LED system, of course color is still sequential since we use a single panel, but with LEDs, the colors can be switched far far more quickly than a colorwheel's speed -- it's the equivalent of something like a 48x colorwheel. I'd challenge anybody to see any rainbow in that.
We're also starting to take further advantage of our single panel display with the color-wheel based systems. If you're at the show, you can see the other TV we're showing next to the Samsung. It's a 70" 1080p system using a 6-color (RGBCMY) colorwheel that gives it a really awesome looking color gamut. The 3LCD guys are going to be pretty angry when everybody realizes that having to use 3 panels means you can't have more than 3 colors.
Finally, in response to mirror flipping causing some kind of low-level flicker, the DLP panel's switching speed is so fast that there is absolutely no way that anyone could perceive it.
Oh and the dimensions of the LED Samsung are about the same as their standard set.
Hope this helped clear up any confusion.
Thanks for posting this information ... at this point I think the Engadget claim of a non-wobulated chip in the HLS5679W can be totally dismissed. It is just using the new .65" xHD5 1080p chip. I do agree with the CES employee commenting about the wobulated image. Once you get used to the smooth image, it is very nice. I have wobulated (1080p) and non-wobulated (720p) sets in my home and I prefer the smoother wobulated picture. I also believe that if they started using a non-wobulated 1080p they could probably get to a better picture eventually. But, since we are in a period of wobulated chips it makes sense to be objective about the advantages of a smooth picture.
