Samsung is one of the world's most popular and respected LCD tv manufacturers. It is no wonder they are one of the best selling tvs on the market. They have reached this level of success by producing high performing tvs at a reasonable price.
So what do we have to look forward to in the new models? Samsung has taken an already good LCD tv in their LNT models and made some improvements for this model year.
The Samsung LCD tvs range from Series 3 which corresponds to the previous xx42 models, Series 4 which corresponds to the xx53 models, Series 5 corresponding to the xx61 and Series 6 corresponding to the xx71 models. They will also be adding Series 7 models.
The Series 3 and 4 models are 720p models and are available in up to 40inch models. These tvs are designed with many of the same components as the upper end models so you are still getting a good tv, even though it is more of an entry level type model. The LCDs allow easy connectivity through side ports with hot keys on the remote to allow easy access.
The Series 5 models open up the door to 1080p for a full high definition experience. They start with the 37inch models and go up to 52inches making these models a great starting point for setting up your home theater.
The Series 6 models add some significant performance upgrades and are 120HZ models. In addition these Samsung LCD tvs include ethernet connections for RSS downloads of weather, stock prices, news and sports scores. Also new in this model is the Touch of Color which adds an amber tint in the bezel for a more stylish design.
The newest Samsung LCD tvs have increased performance by increasing contrast ratio and improving on the response rate from last year's model. They have also made some improvements in the Auto Motion Plus technology for their 120Hz tvs. Of course all of the tvs are HDMI compatible and have multiple inputs for the many technologies that have begun utilizing HDMI.
It will be interesting to see what new developments come out in the coming years. This is a great time for consumers entering the flat screen HD universe or for those looking to make upgrades to their existing set up as LCDs continue to offer a bigger and better picture along with lower prices. From the look of things Samsung will continue to be a leader in the LCD tv market for years to come.
