Introduced to the market in 2009 the Samsung Series 6000 LED TVs offer sharper and brighter images. This has been achieved by a recently new technology called LED edgelighting.
The Series 6 range of Samsung HDTV panels are in effect LCD televisions that have LED’s set in the internal edge of the panel that enhances the brightness of the overall picture.
At the moment the Series 6000 comes in 32 inch, 40 inch and 46 inch models. All feature an Ultra Slim design that can be hung from a wall with ease. The use of LED edgelit technology has allowed Samsung to produce a set that is only 1.2 inches in depth and thus when hung from a wall gives a picture frame effect that is absolutely stunning.
The new LED TV technology employed in the Samsung 6000 LCD LED Backlit televisions also offer a reduction in power consumption of 40% over comparable LCD sets of the same size. This is the future of TVs as we all become more power conscience.
Onboard the Series 6 feature 100Hz Motion Plus technology, Mega Contrast Ratio and a Wide Colour Enhancer that produces vibrant colours and a blur free picture in fast action scenes.
4 HDMI connections are allowed on the Samsung Series 6000 LED tv’s to plug in your peripherals such as dvd-player and sky/virgin boxes. A great plus for these sets is the addition of a USB2.0 port where you can connect your camcorder and watch your vids. But it doesn’t stop there because you are now able to connect a thumb or external hard drive via the USB interface and watch videos direct from the drives, which is a great feature if you have a lot of stored media files. Specs report that the most common files are accepted including Divx. So no more DVD burning every time you need to watch a movie stored on your computer.
