Samsung displayed its LCD HDTV Series 6 and 7 at CES

Samsung has also incorporated networking and easy connection capability in response to consumer needs. In particular, up-to-the-minute access to weather, news, sports and stock information is just a cable and a click away through the HDTV’s Ethernet port and new InfoLink™ RSS service. Designed to be the entertainment hub in the home, the Series 6 and 7 LCD HDTVs enable consumers to access a wide range of digital and multimedia devices—such as MP3 players, camcorders, and PCs—and have their contents displayed, managed and played through the HDTV.

Series 6 Full HD LCD TV

Samsung’s Series 6 marks the first appearance of TOC (Touch of Colour) design in the 2008 LCD HDTV line-up. Inspired by designs from the automotive and fashion industries, Samsung’s new molding process creates a clean, smooth finish infused with a hint of a translucent colour.

The Series 6 HDTVs feature Samsung’s Super Patterned Vertical Alignment (SPVA) panel provides a 178-degree viewing angle as well as overall picture improvements in LCD panel technology. Samsung’s Full HD (1080p) panel uses a new high-speed liquid crystal to cut response time to 4ms. The fast response time, coupled with Samsung’s Auto Motion Plus 120Hz™ motion blur reduction technology dramatically reduces motion blur and judder—making the set ideal for playing video games and watching action sports.

Additionally, the Series 6 features the latest version of Samsung’s clear panel technology, making colours appear more vibrant and blacks even deeper. With the addition of enhanced films, glare is reduced and off-angle viewing has been optimized.

Samsung has incorporated advanced HD connectivity and networking capabilities that expand the HDTV’s functionality. A wide variety of multimedia devices can be connected to the set through any one of the four Simplay compliant HDMI 1.3 inputs (including one on the side). Once connected, users can easily access device menus and manage and display content through the newly redesigned Wheel Key Remote control and the HDTV’s sophisticated content management interface.

The Series 6 Full HD LCD TVs will be available in April in the following sizes: 40-inches, 46-inches and 52-inches. (Model numbers LN40A650T, LN46A650T, LN46A650T and LN52A650T).

I have found out the 40" Canadian MSRP: $2499

It is high, but the US MSRP is $2399... so it is quite nice that we only have a $100 premium this time around! Although US retailers probably will discount a lot more generously than Canadian retailers... oh well :)
