The newest LED HDTVs to hit the market from Samsung include the picture quality and thin depth of their older LED models, as well as the networking capabilities of other HDTVs. The 8500 series comes in 46-inches (SRP: $3599.99) and 55-inches (SRP: $4,499.99), and will be on sale this September.
These TVs feature a contrast ratio of 7,000,000:1, achievable due to the white LED backlighting. They include Samsung’s Wide Color Enhancer Pro, Ultra Clear Panel, and Autio Motion Plus technologies to improve picture quality. They also feature Media@2.0 from Samsung, which allows connectivity to internet video services such as Youtube, wired and wireless connectivity, and a variety of widgets to improve interactivity.
