Samsung HL-S5087W 50" 1080p DLP HDTV

I purchased this HD TV because it was Alain-approved, and I have been very happy with the results. Highlights: - 10,000 to 1 contrast ratio for fantastic pictures. - Connects to your TiVo Series3 HD using an HDMI cable. - Has an extra HDMI input for plugging in your HDDVD player (unless you're going to spring for an HD receiver to switch video, too). - Speakers are not visible so you don't feel bad turning them off and using your nice 5.1 surround sound system. - Supports resolutions up to 1080p so that you're ready for that "future" that everybody keeps talking about. Why DLP instead of plasma? DLP has no half-life so the screen stays bright over the years. Why DLP instead of LCD? DLP has a higher contrast ratio making for a clearer picture. Note: Don't be fooled by the over-brightness of an LCD in the store. Your home is not going to be lit up like Best Buy so the DLP will be plenty bright when you get it home. At that point, the contrast ratio matters more.

It's time to get your game on. I won't go into the fine details on this super sweet DLP HDTV, but what I can say is that it's super slim, light weight at under 75 pounds, has true surround sound and a huge 61" screen you can not only see the determination in the player eyes, you can almost hear their thoughts. Perfect for a night at the movies or a day at the game.

Now that the recession has left me without a job, I think I will just park myself in front of a television like this one and think about how I've spent way too much money on two degrees in the past 5 years and how it has left me watching daytime tv thinking about how I should probably quit everything ever and become a dental assistant.

  • It's an HDMI cable. Useful for some DVD, blu-ray, and AppleTV devices. The point of this is that audio and video are both carried over the one cable. Convenient, less cable clutter. good.

I recently purchased this set and so far I've very pleased with it. Here's the thinking that went into this purchase: Plasma: pro - bright picture, cheaper than LCD, con - burn in, high power consumption. The burn in risk ruins plasma for me. With video games, use as a computer, and crawls/other features TV, I don't want to buy something that's going to degrade. LCD: pro -bright wide picture, con - expensive We were very close to getting a 52" Toshiba LCD, which would have been a fine choice. If you're going to sit 6-7 feet from your set and/or the extra $500+ you'll pay doesn't faze you, go with an LCD from Sony, Samsung or Toshiba. DLP: pro - cheaper, larger sizes available, con - viewing angle, slightly thicker For us, it really came down to price and the DLP features being sufficient. This set is available for well under $2000, and (if you can find it), there's a 56" version that should be under $1500. The usual arguments against DLP are 1. The lamp is $300 and needs to be replaced every few years. This is no longer an issue with LED based DLPs like this one. 2. Rainbow effect. I don't notice it, and it's supposed to be greatly reduced in this generation. 3. Viewing angle/brightness. Still an issue, but we're not throwing a bunch of super bowl parties, so it's not an issue for us. 4. Thickness. You can't mount this to a wall, but I don't care about that. This set is ~18 inches thick and about 70 lbs. It's bulky, but not heavy. If you do pick a DLP, Samsung is the brand to go with. This model is also available in 56" and 67" models. If all the prices are doable, make your choice based on how far away you'll be sitting. For 8-9 feet, the 61" model is perfect, but it'll be overwhelming if you're 6-7 feet away. After 2 months, I haven't had any problems with this set. With the money I saved by not buying a smaller LCD, I can afford to get a nice Blu-Ray player or a small computer to attach.

  • The Samsung HL-T5089 ( http://tinyurl.com/yusznf ) is currently at the top of my must-have list, where televisions are concerned. For years, I've been looking to replace the old 30" CRT television the wife & I share at home: it's no longer able to reproduce deep black colors, the audio's a bit fuzzy, and I don't enjoy squinting to see details when I'm playing games from the couch a few feet away. And this TV looks to have it all... Originally, I had been torn between this and Sony's high-end 2nd generation LCoS TV, the 60" KDS-R60XBR2 Grand WEGA ( http://tinyurl.com/28andz ). Both are excellent televisions: Samsung made use of lower-power LEDs to quadruple the life of its lamp (to 20,000 hours), in addition to its already excellent DNIe technology; Sony held the edge in deeper black reproduction, refresh rate and viewing angle. However, when Sony announced on December 28, 2007, that it would be exiting the rear-projection TV market ( http://tinyurl.com/2fachr ), Samsung became my default choice, as the lack of ongoing support for Sony's TV became a deal-breaker for me. On to the good stuff. This widescreen (16:9) TV supports the maximum HDTV resolution, 1080p, and has a variety of inputs on the side (HDMI x 3, Composite x 2, S-Video x 2) to connect to your various appliances: DVD players, video game consoles, your PC, an audio system, etc. The bezel framing the TV is fairly minimal, and at 45.2" W x 31.8" H x 13.4" D plus a weight of 62lbs, it can fit it most spaces without requiring several pro-linebacker friends to help move it into place. As of January 28, 2008, Amazon is selling this TV for $1900, which is very reasonable for a top-of-the-line TV. The last feature I'd like to mention is the TV's LED lamp. What a lot of people don't realize is that eventually, all modern rear-projection HDTVs will need to have their lamps -- the piece of internal hardware that "makes the TV work" -- replaced, as they are only rated to work for a certain number of hours. The lion's share of HDTV lamps are rated at ~5,000 hours (208 days) of continuous use, which even a casual user could be expected to reach over the course of several years of use. In addition, lamps aren't guaranteed to reach their maximum life expectancy before burning out, and because most lamps cost $250 - $350 (professional service not included), it's an additional hidden cost most buyers might not be aware of. However, the Samsung HL-T5089 makes use of a LED lamp, which reduces the electrical requirements and heat generated by the lamp, thereby extending the lamp's life. We're not talking chump-change, either: Samsung's LED lamps are estimated to last for ~20,000 hours. That's 833 days, or 2 years + 4 months, of continuous use! So while it's entirely possible that the bulb might need to be replaced during the course of the TV's lifetime, the odds are significantly lower.

The combination of DLP technology with an LED light source enables the projectors small size. The projector comes with a battery, ac adaptor, carrying case, remote, and portable 23" screen with stand. The battery will last up to 2 hours. The projector by itself weighs just over one pound. Great for giving presentations, showing off pictures, and mobile gaming.
