If money was no object, what type of TV could you create? If you’re Samsung, the UE55C9000 is just one possibility. It may be slightly more expensive than many small cars, but the outlay gets you the slimmest TV you can currently buy, yet one that’s still crammed full of high-end features including LED backlighting, Freeview HD …
I spotted the Althea and Donna reference ( how old is the reviewer? ) and I claim my free TV
I know a lot of Samsung media devices have interoperable remote controls. Did you test to see whether a "normal" Samsung TV remote would work with this unit?
The TV for football players and rich tycoons maybe. Looks pretty nice.
Question: are active shutter glasses standardized at all between products from the same manufacturer, or even between manufacturers? Or do you have to buy the glasses to match each TV?
I'd get one but....
Obviously it's way too expensive, but more practically, there's never anything worth watching. Oops.
Would be fun to play games on though.
No wall mounting?
Where are you seeing that?
It says in the article that you can wall mount the TV.
RE: No wall mounting?
"If you want to wall mount it, this base can be removed and fitted to the back of the set."
I mean, come on... this was right at the beginning of the article. It's not like it was buried in the later pages. Make an effort.
A Samsung set that does decent upscaling.
Utterly pointless thinness
At under 8mm thin it'll look great hung on the wall, most framed pictures protrude into the room more than that. Bang a duct in the wall for the hidden cabling and the stand can stay in the box where it belongs.
Whats with those pictures
Seem to be suffering from some curving of the straight lines near the edges. Does this fancy screen really have the sort of distortion I'd assosiate with a CRT? Or do you just need a new camera?
You can buy an awful lot of theatre tickets for 5K
"In terms of power draw the set sucks in less than a watt on stand by, but takes a relatively hefty 209W or so in Dynamic mode or around 150W in the Movie mode, which operates with reduced brightness."
Compared with my c.2005 plasma that's nothing (over 300W). Even though it's a good'un they still used to suck up the juice back in the day and it can double as a heater when the weather cools a little.
then I think of all of the other things I could spend £5 grand on.......
