Any guesses as to what impact the release of the 96 series will have on pricing for the current 92 series?
post #64 of 4409
after doing a little research about this tv for another thread i might have found something great.

NO DNIE! after looking at the spec sheet and both of the tv's sections on the web site i see nothing about DNIE. will these tv's even have DNIE or can you turn them off. maybe they are finally doing things like sony and using some things that will be going into the sony X series.

I went to my local Samsung dealer today. (HiFi in Whitby, Ontario, Canada) He gave me an estimated release date and price for these two panels.

For the 4096D, it will cost $3500
For the 4696D, it will cost $4600

He said the panels will be coming in late June or early July. All prices listed above are in Canadian dollars.
post #66 of 4409
Wow I hope those prices are correct! Thats like $3100USD for the 40inch. But sources say MSRP could be $3999USD .

As far as DNie goes, the PSF doesnt state it, but look at this, look at the mini LCD next to it with the specs...

Although, the PDF is newwer.

The one dissipointing thing about these panels is that there is no DVI input for PCs.
post #68 of 4409
dnie is on the tv itself in the left bottom of the tv. but its not listed on the website soo we just have to wait
post #69 of 4409

when you lift this tv up it will have a metal grip on the bottom back of the tv, if you try to lift it holding the glass part you would break it off.

What does a difference in contrast ratio really make? For example, the difference between a 5000:1 and a 6000:1 ratio. Is it really that big of a difference?

That's funny, cos that's all I want to do too!

I was all set to f i n a l l y settle on a Plasma 42, then the smart-girl at CC pitched me me the LCD Sam40 model with the 1080p. I could've strangled her. Now I am back at start. It does sound as if the majority says wait until next month for the 96. Are there any other LCD 40's to seriously consider?

Thanks in advance for any/all responses.

post #77 of 4409
why does the pdf for the 46" samsung list 1920 rez then only shows 1080i ? am i missing something ? is this a 1080p tv or not ?
post #78 of 4409
Only 1080i over Component is why, it only allows 1080p over HDMI.
post #79 of 4409
Does anyone know the dimensions for the Samsung LN-S4096D??? I tried looking on the Samsung website and all over the web and have found nothing.

looks like we have to wait until june for new info or a product manual. everything i see is TBD.

you could use the 40" 92 series to give you a close measurement

Monitor with stand 39.5"(W) x 29.5"(H) x 13"(D)
Monitor without stand 39.5"(W) x 26.8"(H) x 4.5"(D)
Monitor with stand weight 60.6 Lbs.

I'm not calling you incorrect since your post was before E3. I'm just providing an update. Sony announced at E3 that many games, like Gran Turismo 4,, will run at the 1080p resolution and at 60fps.

post #82 of 4409
i have a question for the experts...i was considering the 92 series but i'm waiting to see what the 96 series will be like since the design is a little different and it's 1080p.

my questioni is that since the 96 series is 1080p set, it will have to upconvert current 768 or 720 content to 1080i, right? because of this up conversion, will the PQ be less than if the set is 768 (92 series) or will it look just as good?
post #83 of 4409
I think that if one of the supported display modes for the 1080p 96 is 720p, (which I do not know if it does yet for the 96), then they will look pretty much the same. If not though, I am unsure. That's just my guess, though.
------------------------------------------
As an update, I was doing some searching on the Samsung website, and I came across the TV advisor which allows you to compare several TVs at once. When I went to compare the 46", Samsung gives a "minimal advertised price" of $4,799.99. For the 40", it's given as $3,799.99.
post #84 of 4409
ouch! that's expensive! might have to stick to the 4692D.

Thats an Input mode. This is a fixed pixel display, it only has ONE display mode, and that is 1080p. I think 720p content should be good on it, as its a 2:3 pixel ratio which isnt too bad. On a 768p set the ratio is 15:16.
post #86 of 4409
Thanks for clearing that up for me I assume then that what they mean by "supported display modes" are resolutions that the TV can accept and then convert to the ONE display mode, like to 1080p, for example?

Thanks,
Jared

If you take a look at the very first post in this thread you'll see that those are the MSRPs.
post #88 of 4409
Anyway, for those that missed it there. When I read through this, the only time I had seen price was from #65. Sorry for the extra post, then.
post #89 of 4409
Bump......

Patiently waiting for the 4696D to be released........any info on the exact date as June looms closer?

post #90 of 4409
