Samsung Bordeaux 1080p LCD
Samsung has added to its LCD TV line today with three new LCD sets for its PAVV TV line. A continuation of the Bordeaux design named after its resemblance to a wine glass, the new 40-, 46-, and 52-inch TVs rest at the top of the company's line with exceptionally high contrast: each of the sets uses Samsung's dynamic adjustments to manage a 15,000:1 contrast ratio. Every screen also uses Wide Color Control Plus to keep images vivid across the entire display.
As with many of the Korean firm's latest LCDs, the new screens sport a 1080p-native display and three HDMI inputs. Samsung is shipping the three models in Korea at prices of $3,518 (40-inch), $4,690 (46-inch), and $5,863 (52-inch). The US-equivalent 81 series is slated to ship in July with LED backlighting and will likely feature changed pricing.
