CES 2009: The world's highest ultra-high definition LED TV [day 3]

Samsung certainly doesn't need any more coverage than I've already given it, but the company clearly aimed to blow out all the superlatives it could at this year's CES. I took a spin through the Samsung booth and happened upon their LED TVs, which are stunning in person in both brightness and clarity:Click the image to enlarge.

UPDATE: Sorry, forgot to include the resolution! It's a whopping 3840 x 2160.

Relatedly, their new 8000, 7000 and 6000 series use LEDs as their primary light source, rather than traditional CCFL, resulting in ultra-high contrast ratios, slim depths and increased energy savings (about 40%). The LNXXB8000, LNXXB7000 and LNXXB6000 sport roughly inch-thick bezels, built-in ethernet for Netflix streaming, and integration of Yahoo's Widget Engine. The units also have ATSC tuners. The LNXXB8000 is the only one to feature a 240Hz refresh rate, though.

They're due out in the first half of 2009, no pricing info yet.
