Samsung 2009 HDTV Lineup (Samsung LED)

Some information has leaked about Samsung’s new HDTVs for 2009, a week or so before CES, but now we have official word and confirmation from Samsung about their new models.

As expected, Samsung appear to have been concentrating their efforts on the LED backlighting on many of their new models (6000, 7000 ,8000) called Samsung Luxia LED.

An interesting new feature is the “Internet@TV” function which is an improved version of InfoLive, which uses an Ethernet port for connectivity. All US models are set for release in the first half of 2009.

All of the new Samsung LED HDTVs are now available at Amazon in one place! Currently they are all on special offer and are discounted between 23-29%!.

US 2009 Samsung HDTVs

Samsung 9 Series | UN46B9000, UN55B9000

The Samsung B9000 series is the very top of the range, flagship LED LCD HDTV from Samsung. Consisting of the 46-inch Samsung UN46B9000, and the huge 55-inch Samsung UN55B9000. Unlike the other “LED” HDTVs from Samsung, the Samsung 9000 series uses LED backlighting with local dimming, rather than “edge lit” LED. This enables even higher contrast ratios, for deeper colors, and more impressive black levels. Both sets also feature a wireless connection to a media unit, and Medi@2.0 support.
