Samsung HL-T5087S Rear Projection DLP Review

 

There are a lot of things to like about the Samsung HL-T5087S - LED backlighting means longer bulb life, shorter warm-up cycles, and the elimination of the color wheel and its accompanying rainbow

Super bright ; Great color ; Deep blacks ; Super small frame

Poor viewing angles ; Component video issues ; Poor remote response ; Lack of serious calibration options ; Banding

Color wheels? We don't need no stinking color wheels! Samsung introduces a bold alternative with this DLP HDTV with LED illumination, while its high refresh rate makes it a ready candidate for an optional 3-D solution. (Yes, 3-D.)

If you're into computer gaming and interested in exploring the third dimension, the Samsung DLP/TriDef software/glasses package is something you're definitely going to want to take a look at. Now as the lifespan of this particular DLP model draws to...

Samsung HL-T6187S DLP TV Review and Prices

 

If you've ruled out rear-projection HDTVs because of the hassle of replacing the lamp, you'll want to take a look at one new model that's "seen the light"--the 61-inch Samsung HL-T6187S DLP HDTV. One ongoing concern about digital light producing...

Uses long-lasting, energy-efficient LEDs; price

Moderate contrast; deeper footprint than LCD or plasma

Samsung HL-T5687S 1080p DLP Rear Projection HDTV

 

While the rear projection set has fallen on slow times on the sales floor, most manufacturers, including Samsung, make both flavors of one-piece video displays. There are good reasons for this. The new rear projection displays are far smaller, lighter...

The Samsung does have its strengths, not the least of which are fine color performance and good resolution. It's also relatively inexpensive for a 56-inch set from a major manufacturer.

Flat panels. Everyone, it seems, wants a flat panel television these days. Not to hang on the wall mind you-studies show that most buyers use them on a stand-but because they're, well, cool. While the rear projection set has fallen on slow times on...

Excellent detail, particularly on HD material, Fine color, Good price for a set with cutting edge LED light source, No projection lamp to replace

Poor black level, Noticeable hot spotting on the screen results in brightness and color uniformity issues, Did not perform well with 24fps input, A full calibration is much more complex and time consuming than for most sets

Samsung HL-T5687S Review – 56-inch DLP Rear Projection HDTV

 

I love the Samsung line of RPTV’s and Flat panels. The exterior looks great as well as the picture.

Samsung Hl-t5687s Television

 

Samsung has been a pioneer in the rear-projection DLP scene, and their HL T5687s has taken full advantage of their name. A narrow, piano-black frame surrounds the large 56-inch screen, with only the Samsung logo and power button on display. The set's...

Value-seekers shopping in the 50-inch and larger screen-size range should definitely consider their HL T5687s

Great HD viewing!

 

Fabulous picture quality, really brings HD to life. Looks!

Defective switchoff was replaced; overall, good.
