With a 1,000,000: 1 dynamic contrast ratio and a $2,700 price tag, Samsung is bringing some serious heat with their new bigscreen HD set. Will the numbers and features add up to a beautiful TV watching experience? We'll tell you in Gadget Pr0n.
What You Need to Know
It's only about 4" thick, but most of the inputs are on the back rather than the side, meaning you'll probably have to drill holes to wall-mount it
Samsung always makes these incredibly thin, but this one just isn't as sexy as the last one we saw (the 8 Series)
With this TV you can watch streams of news feeds from USA Today, like sports, politics, etc.
You can watch your favorite stocks and see a market breakdown
Also, there are local daily and weekly weather forecasts
It doesn't really impede your viewing while it's displayed
We do wish it was wireless though
As far as picture quality, the colors are natural, yet the most vivid we've seen
The 1,000,000: 1 dynamic contrast and LED backlight produce some of the deepest blacks ever
Even if you don't like the 120 hertz auto smoothing, it works well and really makes image quality stand out
The 8 Series looked incredible and is by no means outdated, especially now for the price
