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.  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.

  6. Jhay says:

    Nice, can’t wait for LCD TV prices to go down. But this one is just so thin, I wouldn’t let kids near it.

    “The new series now uses Light Emitting Diode (LED) instead of the usual Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamps (CCFL)” – im just curious, what on the two above will last long? lifetime hours?

  8. yuga says:

    @josewerkz, not sure about the LCD but Samsung said their LED has something like 40 thousand hours to maintain its current brightness. After that, the brightness starts to fade a bit.

    at Php159,999 pricetag hanged like a picture frame on the wall!!! :O

    i don’t want to hang it on the wall just like that! aw!

  10. yuga says:

    @Unknown Soldier, hahaha! maybe Samsung offers some sort of warranty for that.

  11. Efren says:

    nice super thin..

  12. dliza says:

    what really makes it ECO-friendly?

  13. Andre Marcelo-Tanner says:

    think the materials are environment friendly and the lower power consumption. I saw one today, really thin and really stylish

  14. blued888 says:

    Too expensive! I’d rather get something cheaper and splurge on DVDs and Blu-rays instead.

  15. mike says:

    well it is aesthetically pleasing but does the picture compare to it’s CCFL counterparts? Since bottom line you’re buying the TV to watch stuff on it not to just hang it on the wall.

  16. eric reyes says:

    now thieves would look at walls rather than ransack drawers.

  17. william says:

    i just saw one these today, and i was really amazed by the quality of the images.

  18. baine says:

    if only samsung could make 32-inch LEDs, now that would lessen power consumption even more…

  19. Arman Aquino says:

    Here in Norway, it is 17,000.00 kroner

  20. woot says:

    55″ for php 260k? Are you about this? That’s pretty cheap considerng the size and the techn0logy, sony’s led tv with the same size is like 600k

  21. Egdon says:

    Major step for technology – energy efficient, improved pictures. But……. price is still absurd and there are still very few worthy video productions to appreciate real HD. But if Hollywood fiction makes you happy and you have a nice HD player, this baby should be in your shopping list.

    no composite/component input?

    If you have made it this far and just finished the last paragraph you will quite rightly assume I can’t recommend this screen for those who want the very best in picture performance – you see I can state the obvious!
