SAMSUNG'S NEW 67-IN. DLP TV SETS HDTV STANDARD

Samsung's top-of-the-line HLR6768W digital television boasts a 67-in. screen, the largest ever in a DLP TV. DLP technology uses computer chips with millions of hinged, microscopic mirrors attached to project images. Sure, there are bigger TVs, like Samsung’s new 80-in. plasma model. But that TV is expected to sell for a cool $40,000, compared to ONLY $7,000 for the DLP model. The chief competitors at this price are LCD TVs, which are slightly more expensive.

Samsung claims its new model is twice as sharp and 6 in. larger than the previous largest model. It displays every pixel of the highest-resolution, high-definition broadcasts. The TV will be in stores the middle of 2005. Contact Samsung at www.samsung.com.
