LED Technology: Samsung's LED technology allows for an
amazing 5,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, and ultra-sharp blacks by allowing
multiple LEDs to turn on an off automatically based on the image. The LED
backlight also provides more natural color representation and deep reds and
greens because Samsung uses white LEDs that produce 105% of the broadcast color
gamut. The television's white LEDs are arranged along the left and right edges
of the screen and a proprietary light guide is used to focus its luminance
inwards towards the middle of the screen for a more uniform brightness. Overall,
this LED Backlight system produces contrast with stronger blacks and whites, and
greater subtlety of every gradation in between.
Ultra Clear Panel: With Samsung's Ultra Clear Panel colors
are more vibrant, brighter, and clearer. This ultra clear panel technology also
enhances contrast and reduces reflection so you can enjoy an overall outstanding
HDTV Tuner: The TV has built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and

Native Resolution: The LED television displays all inputs at
a resolution of 1080p (1920 x 1080). The television's HDMI and component video

4 HDMI Inputs: The four rear-panel HDMI inputs can be used to connect a DVD
player, Game console, HDTV or Satellite Set-top box with an HDMI output. The
HDMI 1 input can also be used to connect a device with a DVI output (a

a separate audio cable will also be needed from the device to TVs PC audio input. No audio cables are needed for an HDMI-equipped device. The
HDMI input can also be used to connect a PC to this TV. The HDMI jack will
accept 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i signals.

Enhancer Pro feature. After analyzing each pixel, it stretches them to their

2ms Response Time: One of the most important features for an
LCD panel is the pixel response time. Response time refers to the amount of time
it takes a pixel to "refresh" itself-to go from being active to being inactive,

time. The television's very fast 2ms response time virtually eliminates any
blurring and gives you smooth-motion action scenes
