Samsung F9 Series / F96

Samsung F9 LE-52F96BDThe Samsung F9 Series was announced a few weeks ago in America as the Samsung 81 Series and has received a huge amount of attention, so we can expect the same of the Samsung F9 over in Europe as well.
The F9 / F96 series is a full HD 1080p LCD HDTV with the same features as the F8 Series with the addition of a new LED backlighing technology instead of standard CCFL backlights. The new LED backlighting technology allows the F9′s to have an astonishing 500,000:1 contrast ratio for amazing colours by being able to locally dim some areas of the screen depending on the image. For example if an area on the screen is part bright and part dark or black, the darker area will have dimmer LED backlighting behind that area for deeper and richer blacks.
Another advantage of LED backlighting, when used with 10-bit video processing, produces more accurate colours for a more natural image while allowing brighter images at lower power usage.

The new F9 series features “100 Hz LED Motion Plus“, one to one pixel mapping for optimum quality, three HDMI 1.3 inputs which all support Anynet+ which allows HDMI CEC devices to be controlled via the set.
