Samsung M92 LCD Sets
Samsung on Tuesday launched a trio of new sets in its Blue Light line of LCD TVs, named after their signature lighting underneath their built-in speakers. The 40-, 46-, and 52-inch M92 series models all depend on an enhanced version of Samsung's dynamic image adjustment to deliver a 17,000:1 contrast ratio, an increase from the 15,000:1 displays already available in North America. Each of the 1080p sets also includes three HDMI 1.3 inputs for richer colors and ACAP support for basic data during sports matches. USB 2.0 provides a convenient hook for music and photo playback.
The Korean firm is launching the three top-end LCDs in its homeland at prices of $3,443 (40-inch), $4,519 (46-inch), and $5,810 (52-inch). Release dates and adjusted prices for other territories were not part of the initial news but should follow in coming months as Samsung converts the sets for international use.
