Samsung’s ultra-thin LED Full HD TV
Yesterday, Samsung Electronics unveiled its new ultra-thin 40″ to 55″ 1080p LED Full HD TV — the Samsung B6000 and B7000 Series. The new series now uses Light Emitting Diode (LED) instead of the usual Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamps (CCFL).
It’s so thin it’s no thicker than a regular netbook at just 1.16″ and weighs about 16+ kg. These models are for the high-end market so Samsung is only making larger screens (40″/46″ for the B6000 and 40″/46″/55″ for the B7000 series).
What’s at the back –2x15watt rms sound output with subwoofer, 2 USB, 4 HDMI, 120Hz frame rate, 16MB Content Library, Picture-in-Picture. Â DLNA Wireless allows you to stream content (photos, music and movies) from PCs anywhere in the house via WiFi.
Normal power consumption is 170W for the B6000 and 220W for the B7000 series but only uses 0.1W on standby. Samsung claims up to 40+% power reduction compared to LCD TVs of the same size.
The units are light enough that they have this small metal-mesh hanger you can use to hang the LED TVs on the wall (much like a huge wall painting).
These LED units should be available by next week with the 40″ starting at Php159,999 and the 55″ at around Php259,999. More expensive than the regular LCDs but way cheaper than other LEDs before it.
