Bummer. The problem is that my TV goes in a corner and anything wider than 54 inches crowds a doorway. Might be able to get in a 61 but runs the risk of being bumped. We'll see.

[indent][i]"After a full day roaming the Consumer Electronics Show floor, I have to say the most mind-blowing thing I saw was the dual-view and 3D high-definition technology called DLP, made by Texas Instruments. This technology is being rolled out in Mitsubishi and Samsung televisions.

These are not flat-screen models, but thicker projection TVs. I was initially stopped in my tracks by the amazing image on a 73-inch model.

Stop right there. All I needed to hear was 73 inch model. That means a 73 inch Laser DLP is on the way. SIGN ME UP SOLD....

I wouldn't make that assumption. Neither of the demos she's referring to ran on the Laser TV's Mitsubishi debuted at the Palms on Monday night--they ran on conventional lamp and color wheel models being used in the DLP booth. While Mitsubishi is pushing the Laser TV sets, the 73-inch Mitsubishi she's talking about was not one of them. The three Laser sets were all 65".

This takes nothing away from the amazing demos available at the booth. My wife, who is much more of a pragmatist than I am when it comes to bleeding edge technology, was wowed by the dual-view demo(although I think she just covets the ability to watch movies while I play Madden ). I thought the 3D presentation was the best home 3D application I've seen, mostly because they modified current movies and video games (Harry Potter, Revenge of the Sith, Beowulf, Madden, etc) to showcase it.

The sign on the second pic appears to say HL-T6187 to me.

The Darkchip4 technology is on display in TI's DLP products booth at CES (Central Hall, Booth #8205). Since these new Samsung models are coming out in April or June anyone really know whats the DLP processor is for the different model lines? So far no specs posted.

That's correct. Outside of the Darkchip 4 prototype and the demo sets used for 3D and dualview, the new Samsungs were only being shown at the Samsung booth.

While I was told the Darkchip4 would not be in the 2008 Samsungs, I wouldn't assume that this year's models would not be an improvement WRT judder. I thought the 67" LED Sammy looked very nice.

Those are prototype sets in the TI booth, not the 2008 Samsung models.

You can see the blacker blacks on the Darkchip4 side compared to the Darkchip3 side.
post #49 of 5058
Samsung, please add Darkchip 4 to your 2008 line-up.. (although press release doesnt say anything about that).
Now we need 240Hz and Lasers for full effect and we have a perfect DLP set before they retire?
I'll take 67" one.

Yes and other places it gives the movie a little more detail, the Darkchip3 side looks washed out.
post #52 of 5058

I find the press releases totally confusing on this matter but according to JohnAV this is true, and the smaller sets are (I guess) colour-wheel hot-lamp. Doesn't make any sense to me but to be sure I guess we'll have to wait until Samsung lists them.
post #55 of 5058
Dumb move. Frankly, they should of dropped lamp based on all but the 50" in spite of the fact the LED sets are more $$.
BTW; Last years LED sets are the 'Greenest' TVs' per screen size;

Let me get this straight, Samsung announced the 2008 LED DLPs without detailed specs and their CES booth didn't showcase any of the the sets displaying contents? Did any show attendees ask the booth staff for details of the new sets?
post #57 of 5058
Yeah, what are the differences? HDMI 1.3 for one I would imagine.

I guess they don't want to tank sales of current sets too badly by announcing all of the improvements, but I want to know if it's worth waiting, or if I should pick up the 61" LED now to replace my first gen trusty old HLN617W. That has been a great set, but I wants me some 1080p!

Anyone want to buy my old set with a brand new unused lamp for say $800? :-)

HDMI 1.3 is in the press release (in the first post in this thread), that's no secret. They had that this year except it was only the high-end model that was priced too high. Its the rest of the specs that they weren't as clear on. Hopefully they do DC4 this year.
post #59 of 5058
Does anyone know what new technology will be introduced on the upcoming Samsung DLP 72" model since it looks like no LED DLP. I was really looking forward to the 5" more or 26% larger screen than the 67"...the immersion effect is just phenominal.

The people at the Samsung Booth refused to give out any specifics to the new displays.
