How much will this cost?

No idea as yet but it's encouraging that it's LED backlit because as a 7 series it will probably be cheaper than the forthcoming 9 series successor to the F96, the A950.

We should get an idea of pricing at IFA 2008 which starts on August 29th.

Well done again Chris on the quick thread start

:smashin:

I have to say, the new samsungs are looking better and better. Love the blue lighting. Cheers Chris for getting on top of these threads. :smashin:

Hi.

What's the advantage with the new LED backlight feature?

True black with absolute 0 backlight can be achieved on screen. Automatic backlight dimming in dark parts (not the whole screen is dimmed) in (say) movies to give the deepest blacks possible. It basically solves the achilles heel of lcds, which is poor black levels due to backlighting.

Wow, sounds great. As even with the latest Sammy's great black levels, they can look a bit grey if you are watching in the dark.

what also is in need of clarification is whether it will have the local dimming or not.I think its not going to come considering that the A780 has to be cheaper than A950 which has it

They do look very suave.

As for the Blue, just to clarify this isn't lighting, its actually a clear portion of the bezel with a Blue dye injected through the moulding.

Very classy but I do personally prefer the Red accent of the 750.

Having said that, I'd buy a TV with LED backlighting in a minute if it were within my budget.

what also is in need of clarification is whether it will have the local dimming or not ....

The good news Chris is that according to that German website the 780 has a, "LED Local Dimming Backlight".

Hi,

Looks wise, to me it is just plain boring - I was hoping the Samsung would not have such ridiculously wide bezels on their top models - it just makes the whole set much bigger than necessary imho. My dream is to have a tv with no bezel at all!

Suave!

If you guys have seen the info on the A780 on the german Samsung website, do you agree it won't be a 46" of the A780 in September!?

It looks like the following models will be available in September:

A750 (LCD) in 40", 46" and 52"
A750 (Plasma) in 50" and 63"
A780 in 40"

According to the documents at:
http://presse.samsung.de/news/ifa_pressemappe.aspx

It is so that the A780 will be available in September in a 40" size. According to the same documents the A750 will also be available in September but in 40", 46" and 52" sizes. The 950 is also slated for a September release in 46" and 55" sizes.

The PDFs also states that the A780 will have LED local dimming and that it will be 2160 LEDs in the panel.

One thing that I don't know though, is what is the difference between Wiselink (USB 2.0) and Wiselink Pro? Cause comparing the specs of the A780 and the A950 that, more or less, seems to be the only difference!?

If the new series of Samsungs is due out in september does that mean the current 6 series will see a price drop around then. If so do you think it will be a particularly large one that would make buying one right now seem like a waste of money.
