To my surprise no thread about this upcoming beauty (or did i miss it?), so here it is.




Improvements over the current Q96/97 HD-ready series is not only 1080p,
but Samsung claims also a much better gray scale gradation and better color bit-depth:

Screen Size(inches): 50"
Resolution(Number of Pixels): 1,920 x 1,080
Brightness: 1,000cd/m2
Contrast Ratio: 15000:1
Number of colors (expressed): 18bit (C/Q series: 16bit)
Grey Level (Gradation): 262,144 (C/Q series: 65,536 steps of gradation)
HDMI Version: Ver 1.3

Looks promising. :cool:

And for the ones who understand the Korean language, or just like to watch images: :)

Supposed to be available here in the next couple of weeks. I'm actually waiting to audition one and I'm buying nothing else until I've seen it. The Q97 has been hugely impressive to me for the staggeringly low price and I really hope this one continues the tradition. Its around £1750 as well which is a phenomenal bargain.

I'm gonna wait and have alook at one of these aswell, as Samsung seem to be on abit of a roll at the moment. I was gonna wait until the new Pioneer 1080p came out in september, but if this is any good I might buy one and save a shed load of money!

It looks nice, but is it going to be a match for the likes of Pioneer 508LX and the Panasonic 50-PZ700. The funny thing though it's going to come at half the price of the 508LX...hummm.

I don't think it will be long before this set is under £1500 as one UK retailer(be direct) has it on their site for pre order at £1763 now.

Once its down to £1500 as long as reviews are good I shall be buying one:thumbsup:

£1763.99

Be-Direct - available in July.

According to specs it's true 1080p - that'll be the 1st plasma at that price rather than the Pioneer which is £5k.

The manual is on the Samsung website - I just downloaded it - now reading.

That is tempting but screen-burn is still a worry.

The 'Q' series is at Dixons with coupons+quidco+free del - around £900.

It's a big manual but does carry a lot of screen burn warnings.

It has built in functions to help avoid this it's still a worry.

What's the difference between the P76 & P96? Does anyone know?

Thanks. Don't think "The Boss" will let me get away with a 63" screen!! Will have to "make do" with the 50"!

Do Samsung use some kind of screen wobbling/saver method for screen burns like panny and pio?, if not a big worry and a defo put off.

Please stop getting concerned about screen-burn. The crap in the manual is standard stuff and not some tacit amittance that this screen is particularly prone to it. Samsungs are usually very good in this regard.

I would hold off buying one of these for 6 months given the shambles of the recent Samsung M86/7 sets .Samsung seem to have absolutley no conception of testing a product properly before inflicting it on the public.
