Samsung LED 3D TV Best Price

Frankly, I didn’t expect to be particularly impressed with this Samsung HL-S5086W inexpensive DLP set, but the HL-S surprised me from the first turn-on. Vivid mode was, of course, the way the set started up when it arrived, and was “overdone” in every way (as it is with all sets I’ve checked fresh out of the box). But switching to Movie gave a smooth, natural looking picture that was a pleasure to watch.

In the world of bargain priced big-screen HDTVs, the Samsung HL-S5086W is a standout with exceptional performance in many aspects of its picture and no truly fatal flaws. It’s bright, vivid, and colorful as you’d expect, but it can also be a highly accurate display device with the touch of a button for more critical viewing. While its picture can look a bit soft, especially with motion, the things that you notice most (color, contrast, artifacts) are done so well that the overall picture is really quite nice and belies the incredibly low price. Blacks aren’t “inky black” but in spite of that, the set still does darker scenes pretty well. Add to that its space saving design and complete set of video inputs and you have the new bargain price leader that even a serious videophile could probably live with. I never thought I’d be praising a low-priced Samsung HDTV like this, but I’ve learned never to underestimate this company. They make dramatic improvements each year and are now a force to be reckoned with in HDTV.
