Samsung is currently offering $100 rebates on the SIR-T150 HDTV tuner and the TSL-2795HF and TSL-3295HF HDTV-compatible televisions. To get the rebate on the televisions, you also have to buy the DVD-P701 progressive scan DVD player.


You can download the rebate coupons here . Click on PRODUCTS >> TV, video & audio >> TV >> Promotions. I unsuccessfully tried to provide a link directly to the rebate download page.


Previous posts by Erik Garci indicate that the SIR-T150 is available for less than $500. ecost.com has the DVD-P701 for $185.60. Crazy Eddie has the TSL-3295HF for $1249 and the TSL-2795HF for $929.



So you could buy the TSL-2795HF, the SIR-T150, and the DVD-P701 for about $1600, less $200 in rebates -- about $1400 for a complete system for watching OTA HDTV and DVD with progressive scan. This seems like a great deal to me.


Until recently, I thought of Samsung as a second-rate manufacturer of inferior products. However, I have been very impressed with their low-cost, high-quality computer monitors. Anyone have any factually-based input on the quality of Samsung's AV equipment, especially the components I have discussed?


The televisions have component video input, 480p and 1080i input, 16:9 mode, and two tuners. Does anyone know if 1080i input in 16:9 mode is displayed with all 1080 lines?


The DVD player has progressive scan, digital audio out, component video out, and will play a CD-R with MP3 encoding.


The HDTV tuner has digital and RCA audio out, and composite, S-Video, component, and VGA video out. Video output can be 480i, 480p, 720p, or 1080i.

I am getting more impressed all the time with Samsung.


They make two 30" wide screen direct view HDTVs which seem to be very good, the TSL3099HDF, $2800 at Tweeter, and TSL3095WHF, $2000, both apparently 1080i capable. Anyone have personal experience with these?

There seems to be a lot of confusion about the model names for this series of monitors. Some websites use TSK as a prefix, some use TSL. Some websites use hyphens, some don't. The model names on the Samsung website are TSL2795HF, TSL3295HF, TSL3095WHF, and TSL3099WHF.


I believe that only the TSL3099WHF is a true 1080i monitor, although you would never know it from reading the specifications on the Samsung website. The TSL3099WHF is identified as a 1080i monitor, and the other three models are described as having 1080i input capability.


The hifi.com website lists the TSK2795HF, the TSK3295HF, and the TSK3095WHF. According to hifi.com, all three of these monitors convert all inputs to 480p.


If you are interested in the TSL3095WHF (TSK???), hifi.com sells this monitor for $1999, with free white glove delivery. They are currently offering $200 off any purchase over $1400, which means $1799 delivered.


By the way, according to the Samsung rebate coupon, all four of these monitors qualify for the $100 rebate when purchased with the DVD-P701 progressive scan DVD player.

Two questions for you, c0_re --


Is it true that the TSL3095WHF converts 1080i input to 480p for display?


What type of switch are you using? Does it switch both component video and digital audio, or just the component video?

Nope the 3095 has a full 1080i lines of rezolution, the series before the 3095 looked identicle(exterior) but only supported EDTV(480p) You can pich those up for around 1200$.



Here is a site showing off the old Samsun 16x9 EDTV

here is the Samsung brochure in Adobe Acrobat Viewer format

I'm using a model 90 selector from Audio Authority for component switching 174$ and a 40$ RCA\\S-Video switcher for TV sound. Most people I talk to say the mechanical switches work just fine.

Although they do not qualify for rebates, the TSK2792F and TSK3292F are 4:3 "HDTV" monitors. According to the owner's manual "Only 480p and 1080i are supported in their original formats". I have the TSK2792F coupled with the DVD-P401 - it looks great when displaying both DVDs and normal TV.


I think Samsung made a marketing mistake when they originally released the TSKs because they were labeled as SDTV.
