Samsung LED DLP HDTV - Affordable HDTV Alternative

DLP HDTV has been considered no good for a few years now. In some cases, I beg to differ.  For someone on a budget who is looking for a big screen that supports everything needed this TV is an excellent choice. Price to TV size this HDTV is the number one choice available.  In fact, for the same screen size in LED or Plasma its a considerable difference.

An affordable HDTV alternative 
In particular, Samsung LED DLP HDTVs offer an important advantage over the traditional lamp-based sets. Apart from important picture performance advantageous such as the generally more accurate colors, LED DLPs support lower power consumption, faster startup times, and equally important, extended lifetime of the LED light pack. Samsung quotes 60,000hrs for its third generation LED rear projection TV sets. This results in a lower cost of ownership as these sets do not require any lamp changes for the whole duration of their expected lifetime. This contrasts heavily with standard UHP/HID lamp-based DLPs which require a typically $100 lamp replacement every 4,000 to 6,000 hours.

And if you are afraid of a possible rainbow effect, LED DLPs - like the Mitsubishi LaserVue, do not suffer from this phenomenon even though has become a non-issue with present day lamp-based DLP HDTVs thanks to the increased number of color segments on the color wheel and the higher spin rates.
LED (Light Emitting Diode) for modern color realization
Samsung's new LED light engine replaces the arc lamp & color wheel design of previous DLP HDTVs, and realizes beautiful color. LED will last the life of the TV. Samsung LED DLP TVs eliminate the need to replace the consumable lamps every few years, and thus have less impact on the environment and on one’s wallet. Samsung's LED light engine makes possible an Ultra-Wide Color Gamut that exceeds the NTSC defined color space spec for richer color than you've seen before on TV. Samsung DLP HDTVs with an LED engine are more energy efficient than similar sized flat panel displays, and the lack of a moving color whell in the design means they perform with less noise than any previous DLP HDTV design.

Samsung employs a Texas Instruments DLP chip that is comprised of millions of microscopic mirrors. The DLP chip is faster than any other HDTV technology, with the mirrors switching on & off 15,000 times a second to deliver a razor-sharp picture for fast moving images. When combined with Samsung’s new Cinema Smooth light engine, the result is a crisp, bright picture with deep, rich colors that’s closer to film.
