Samsung Plasmas

I'm very happy to report that Samsung is still bullish on plasma, introducing three new slim lines and two standard-depth lines. All five lines feature a new Clear Image Panel, in which the outer filter glass is affixed directly to the plasma panel with no air gap. This allows them to be thinner and achieve lower black levels in the presence of ambient light.

All but the entry-level C450 offer wireless DLNA connectivity, and the three slim lines—C8000, C7000, and C6500—can access online content. The top two lines add 3D capability, and the C8000 provides a Motion Judder Canceller that smoothes out film content. As expected, prices were not announced, and availability was said to be the second half of 2010.
