CES - DLP meets LED

LEDs have been the next big thing in backlit display technology for some time, and Samsung now couples an LED light source with Texas Instruments' popular DLP rear projection technology in a 57-inch 1080p set, the HL-S5679W.

What's so great about a DLP rear-projection TV with an LED light engine? Several things, including a superior color gamut, faster turn-ons, and longer lamp life (20,000 hours without brightness degradation, according to Samsung). As an added bonus, the technology is mercury-free, making it more environmentally friendly than other DLP light engines.

The HL-S5679W has some other high-end features, including two 1080p HDMI inputs, ATSC (digital TV) and NTSC (analog TV) tuners, and a CableCard slot (so you don't have to use a cable box). It's expected to ship in April with a US$4,199 pricetag.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
