Monday I wrote about the dread and apprehension of entering the market to purchase a large high definition television. One of the major reasons I am weary of such a purchase is that such a large outlay of cash for a TV brings the inevitable buyers remorse, especially considering that a good TV will be with you for a decade or more. Statistically even marriages (present company excepted) don’t have that kind of longevity.
Based on the feedback to that post, and some research on my part, I’m leaning toward the forthcoming Samsung HL-S5679W, a 1080p LED light sourced DLP RPTV that replaces a the normal bulb with a high-powered LED light source. Here’s a bunch of write-ups on the new unit, as shown at CES 2006:
For the folks who chimed in previously (and those who didn’t), assuming the street price comes down a bit does this look like my best option compared to plasma and LCD?
