What do they mean by that? Is the idea to clear out the old stock by offering specials, or is this for the new stock?This is because Samsung would like to create space for their 2012 range of TVs that are set to go on sale from April.
Last time they had a special we were less than bemused,they seem to think Indian style pricing schemes means more people will buy
*If you don't know what I mean: Overcharge by 50% then offer a 20% discount and call it a bargain
My parents went to look for a new TV at Makro this weekend. The sales guy said that there will be a sale on the Samsung Smart TV's soon (the 2011 models) and that they should wait. The 46" 3D LED Full HD Smart TV should go for around R10k (same price as the non-smart ones on special now). Current price is around R14k.
I thought R6k for my Samsung UA40D5500 was a great deal.
Currently, Dion Wired has the 46D6000 for R10 000 - seems the other retailers will just sort of match this price...
what's this "LED picture quality" they speak of? :/ local dimming?
4. Edge-lit TVs are really thin, but uniformity suffers.
As I said, the key benefit to an edge-lit LED-backlighting scheme is that manufacturers can make thinner TVs. However, the downside is that the backlighting isn't quite as uniform. With edge-lit displays, if you put a white image up, you may notice that the outer edges of the screen appear brighter, or "hotter." Also, when you put up an all-black image, the edges of the screen will appear lighter (grayer).
I was going to get that last week, but then i thought i'd wait for the new models to bring down the price of the current D6000 range.
How are you finding it? Is text as sharp as a pc lcd screen when using pc mode?
eish, waiting is hard.Couldn't wait anymore, had to get a tv.
Yes, it's very good and I am using the VGA port for now. Don't have a HDMI cable yet, but don't see the need to get one. I had the UA46D5500 before and used a HDMI cable on that one. It was still clear and readable, but the 40" is perfect.
How about selling monitors only, with no tuners, so that users do not have to have a TV licence when buying one.
