Samsung's HL-P5063W displays 50 inches of inviting widescreen viewing, elegantly framed in an ultra-light, thin-bezel cabinet. Weighing under 78 pounds and standing less than 15 inches deep, the high-definition-ready HL-P5063W offers more screen and less bulk. But it offers more than just quantity of screen: it's also engineered for quality.

The secret to this DLP (Digital Light Processing) projection set's quality is its Emmy-winning technology from Texas Instruments. Samsung has combined its proprietary Cinema Smooth Gen 3 HD light engine and advanced optic enhancements with a single, postage-stamp-sized Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) capable of generating high-definition video images with film-like resolution, deep blacks, and robust colors. Samsung's Cinema Smooth light engine enhances brightness while ensuring an incredible 1,500:1 contrast ratio.

Texas Instruments' DMD panel is immune to the factors that can cause other displays to deteriorate with use, imparting a longer life expectancy than that of cathode ray tube (CRT) sets, plasma display panels, and liquid crystal display systems (LCD, LCoS, HTPS).

A host of advanced digital interfaces and video inputs make non-issues of connectivity challenges and future proofing. Hang it, mount it, rest it on a stand, or move it just about anywhere, anytime. The screen's surface is nearly 100 percent reflective, and its lightning-quick switching speeds make it twice as fast as earlier designs and nearly 1,000 times faster than competing micro-display technologies.

The HL-P5063W's automatic digital-format conversion system converts any input (whether DTV, analog TV, or XGA computer sources at 1080i, 720p, 480p, or 480i) to a progressive, 16:9 widescreen image with a 1,280 x 720 pixel count. A 3D Y/C digital comb filter dramatically reduces image-edge artifacts while improving transition detail, and the set's HD ultra-fine-pitch (.155 mm) screen further clarifies images, especially when you're viewing high-resolution sources like DVD and HDTV.

Samsung's Cinema Smooth Film Mode 3:2 Pull Down correction circuitry addresses digital distortion in 480i (interlaced) video signals generated from 24 frames-per-second film.

Finally, Samsung DNIe video enhancer (Digital Natural Image engine) works with all analog NTSC and wideband video signals for improvements in contrast, white level, and picture detail, incorporating digital noise reduction to improve lower-quality sources.

The set offers digital-video inputs in 2 formats. A DVI-HDTV interface with HDCP copy protection permits all-digital rendering of video without the losses associated with an analog interface, and an HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) jack channels both digital audio and video to simplify connections with newer DTV set-top boxes and DVD players by reducing hookups to just a single cable and plug.

Other inputs include dual HDTV component-video inputs (480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i) for high-definition satellite receivers, HDTV tuners, and HD cable boxes with component video outputs (Y, Pb, Pr); 3 each composite- and S-video inputs; and 2 RF coaxial inputs for antennas or older VCRs or cable boxes. An audio/video output permits hookup with an external device such as a surround-sound receiver.

A 15-watts-per-channel (x2) audio system with a pair of 2-way speakers comes with built-in SRS TruSurround XT, which simulates compelling surround sound through any stereo playback system, including headphones and the TV's speakers.

Last but far from least, onboard 2-tuner PIP with side-by-side split-screen viewimng grants convenient simultaneous viewing of 2 TV programs, while a supplied universal remote control permits control of the TV, a DVD player, a VCR, and a tuner/surround receiver.

Here's a feedback which I left for HLP 4663 model TV also. HLNs are older than HLP and the feedback below compares HLP/HLN/HLM. It does not has the nunmber of input/output (composite/component etc) since that can easily be found on the product description page.

This reviews pretty much applies to all the DLP level TVs from Samsung. I researched for around more than couple of months before finally buying this one.

Samsung initially started with HLM/HLN series DLP models which were using HD2 chip from Texas Instruments and the contrast ratio was 1000:1. This performed very well in reviews, quality and black level as compared to Sony LCD rear projection.

The next series is the latest on which is HLP xx63 series where xx is the size in diagonal (HLP 4663, HLP 5063). The improvements in this are 7 segment color wheel instead of 6-segment, which gives better color. This also uses 3rd generation chip HD3 which has contrast ratio of 1500:1. The bulb are also better in this one since there were some problems in the earlier version of the TV. This is a great TV, light weight as compared to some other and plasmas.

The next series which is out only in 2 models is HLP 5085 and HLP5685. These are also 7-segment color wheel but they have HD2+ chip. This is 4th generation chip and is better than HD3. Its contrast ratio is 2500:1 which should mean better black levels. These are the ones with pedestal which looks cool in the picture but is kinda bulky looking in the store. I'm not sure why this model is not out in 46 inches, may be it doesn't make difference in smaller sizes.

Next, 5th generation chip is going to be xHD3 and should give around 4500:1 contrast ratio.

Overall, DLPs are better since they have better contrast than plasmas and weigh less.

If are thinking of upgrading to HDTV, this will be a real treat. Watching an HD broadcast through a screen this big and bright is like watching something through a window instead of on tv. After watching HD on this tv for a while, you'll think that watching a regular old broadcast is like watching something through a cloud.

I did quite a bit of research on the web and in stores and this tv is what I settled on. I have not regretted that choice for a moment. You won't either. (The runner up was one of the Sony LCD projection tv's, which looks fantastic too. The web research indicated that LCD projection may loose definition over time - not sure whether that is truly the case or not. I'm sure I'd be happy with the Sony too, it actually looked a little bit sharper to me side-by side).

A few caveats: (1) don't even think of buying an HD tv and not spending the money to upgrade your cable or satellite to an HD feed - that's like buying a Ferrari and driving it without any air in the tires; (2) realize that the number of HD channels and shows is still limited now - if you want the most HD content, look into the alternative satellite service - VOOM; (3) you may have read about the "rainbow effect" on DLP tv's like this one - I can definitely see it and I don't have super-human lizard eyes- try looking at the screen in a showroom when there is a combination of something very dark and very light on the screen at the same time and quickly averting your eyes, you'll see it. This doesn't bother me, but I can see it. Make sure it won't bother you. If it does, go with the Sony; (4) make sure you realize that the "HLP" Samsungs are a generation newer and better than the "HLN's".

I recently moved up from a Toshiba 34HFX direct view to the 'new' DLP technology. I bought the Toshiba three years ago because of the direct-view HD. I wasn't happy with plasma prices or the ED standard that it was limited to.

My Toshiba is still giving one of the best HD views I've ever seen, except now, my nephews are enjoying both HD cable and wicked gaming, and I'm enjoying my 5063.

The 34 cost 2500 three years ago. I paid a shade under 3000 for the 52. And I'm very happy.

Side to side comparisons from both DTV and cable give the edge to the tube. [this may be one of those 'nothing sounds better than a tube-driven amp' arguments ...personal pref for a ray gun?]. Rearranging the furniture comparison goes to the 5063 - although bulky for one person, it weighs in at +-75 pounds.

If you're a computer geek, and you want convergence, you have a super choice. Tie your graphics card to the component inputs (2), the DVI input, the HDMI input, the PC input (rez up to 1920 x 1080i, including 1280 x 720p), and the standard composite and s-video inputs.

The nature of DLP means no 'burn-in'. If you forget to turn off the x-box/ps2/gamecube and you're gone for a couple months, the screen won't have a 'burned-in' image. For you geeks out there, this includes the HTPCs you want to connect for a convergence appliance.

Since I've been using convergence in non-technical terms, I'll visit rear-projection convergence. It does not apply. The halogen lamp image is reflected off the DMDs through a color wheel, which requires no calibration that you would expect with tradition rear-projection sets.

DMD-DLP technology is not 'new.' How the D-D technology is being applied is new, and you should be aware of that.
