40-Inch LED Backlit LCD Panel Shown by Samsung

Samsung showed of their new LE40M91 LCD flat panel at the IFA conference in Berlin this week.

The new set features a high-powered LED backlight, said to boost color gamut to 146% and the LCD panel claims a 10,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, which is extremely good for an LCD panel. As 1080p native displays become more and more common, it’s surprising that the set only features WXGA (1366×768) resolution. However, at this display’s size, 720p should be more than enough for the average home user to enjoy most current HD content. Rumored street pricing is around $3000 USD.

The display also features something Samsung calls “LCD 100 Hz video quality enhancement,” which is said to interpolate an extra frame between each video frame to reduce motion blur. I’m not sure what sort of distortion this might cause to the images, but it does sound like something worth looking at.

They also rolled out the LE40F7 and LE46F7 which are 40-inch and 46-inch models, respectively. These models don’t feature the LED backlighting, but do feature a full 1080p resolution and a 6,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, so they’re worth a mention as well.
