Samsung's DLP Sets: Big, Green, and Well Connected
Though DLP TVs are not as skinny as LCDs or plasmas are, they have other virtues. Samsung's Series 6 (shown here) and Series 7 DLP models feature support for USB 2.0 as well as the HDMI 1.3-CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) spec, which allows compliant consumer electronics to communicate directly with one another. Series 6 sets will be available in sizes ranging from 50 to 72 inches. The Series 7 displays, with LED lighting, are available in 61- and 67in versions that Samsung touts as exceptionally environmentally conscious, consuming about half the power of a 60in plasma set.
