Product Description

Product Description

61" Slim Depth 1080p Widescreen DLP TV

From the Manufacturer Enjoy more picture and less frame with Samsung's HL-T6187S DLP HDTV. The piano black bezel is just 0.6" wide; the set's slim depth lets it fit where others won't. The energy-efficient 61" screen features a powerful, long-lasting LED light engine that turns on almost instantly. Full HD 1080p resolution and Samsung Cinema Smooth technology deliver a wide range of brilliant colors, with bright images and crisp definition. The blackest blacks, brightest whites and nuanced tones are yours with a 10,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. Hidden speakers deliver clear, robust SRS TruSurround XT sound.

Samsung's LED color and light engine
The revolutionary new LED system available on Samsung DLP HDTVs offers better color, and energy efficiency.
LED (Light Emitting Diode) for modern color realization
Samsung's new LED light engine replaces the arc lamp & color wheel design of previous DLP HDTVs, and realizes beautiful color. LED will last the life of the TV. Samsung LED DLP TVs eliminate the need to replace the consumable lamps every few years, and thus have less impact on the environment and on one’s wallet. Samsung's LED light engine makes possible an Ultra-Wide Color Gamut that exceeds the NTSC defined color space spec for richer color than you've seen before on TV. Samsung DLP HDTVs with an LED engine are more energy efficient than similar sized flat panel displays, and the lack of a moving color whell in the design means they perform with less noise than any previous DLP HDTV design.

Samsung Cinema Smooth light engine
Samsung's Cinema Smooth light engine create's images with a smoother, more film-like appearance.
Cinema Smooth Light Engine
Samsung is the worldwide leader in creating light engines that harness DLP HDTV technology from Texas Instruments. Samsung’s Cinema Smooth light engine brings together the right optics, electronic circuitry and replaceable light source to create a brilliant picture that’s more lifelike and much closer to film. Now in its sixth year of evolution, Samsung’s Cinema Smooth light engine delivers crisp, 1080p High Definition resolution with high contrast and brightness, defined edges and sharp detail.

Next Generation DLP Chips from Texas Instruments
Samsung employs a Texas Instruments DLP chip that is comprised of millions of microscopic mirrors. The DLP chip is faster than any other HDTV technology, with the mirrors switching on & off 15,000 times a second to deliver a razor-sharp picture for fast moving images. When combined with Samsung’s new Cinema Smooth light engine, the result is a crisp, bright picture with deep, rich colors that’s closer to film.

Samsung Cinema Smooth light engine
SRS TruSurround offers a surround sound experience from only two speakers.
SRS TruSurround Samsung HDTVs are equipped with the best that technology can offer in sound quality. Even when viewing regular broadcasts, Samsung's two speaker surround sound makes you feel as if the theater has been brought to your living room.

I highly recommend the HLTXX87 series for the following reasons:

1) LED engine eliminates the need for the 'lamp' bulb which you will find in other DLP, LCDs, SXRD/LCoS, etc projection TVs. Those with lamps will need to be replaced about every other year and cost about $300. And no 'spinning color wheel' which you can hear in some units.

2) LED engine are rated to last some twenty years...which is a lifetime...lowering total ownership cost and avoiding the difficulty of waiting for a service technician to replace a bulb days later...and left stranded without a TV.

3) Samsung LED HLT sets take only about 4 seconds for an image to appear when turned on. Others can take over 30 eternity.

4) Deeper blacks. More vibrant colors compared to other projection TVs.

5) The cabinet style is more eternal and sleek with the small surrounding frame (less than one inch border). Style remains the same from product to when Samsung releases the next generation of TVs...yours won't look dated.

6) The audio/sound isn't the greatest...however surely a home theatre system will be hooked up for a fine experience.

7) Samsung is smart in how they placed their connections (including 3 hdmi ports). Others will place them dead center in the back...which does not allow for easy access to the plugs during installation and later modifications. Samsung places it on the right side of the rear...which can be accessed easily yet are totally concealed from viewing. Even the power cord is to the back-right (and removable) so that when installing the larger tv in a is actually easier to place into the cabinet unit.

8) When changing/flipping channels on some TVs....

This set is exceptional in HD picture quality and performance. Regular non-HD channels do not look that great, however, it is still an excellent television. As a previous owner of a Samsung 50" DLP I have firsthand experience with Samsung quality. This 61" set has exceeded my initial expectations; DVD's and streaming video through Windows Vista and the Xbox 360 are excellent, no complaints. I recommend sitting at least 7-10 feet from the screen as the picture quality degrades the closer you get, not to mention its tough on the eyes. As for the "white glove" delivery, this was non-existent through Eagle Freight.
The set must be a "most wanted" item as the price has increased at Amazon since my purchase two weeks ago; however, the price beats most big-box retailers.
Lastly, this is an excellent television and it has many unadvertised features such as upgradeable software or firmware via it's USB connection ,etc.

I bought this TV on 11/30. It has a severe case of the halo effect described in the "Consumer Alert" above. Although I wanted to like the TV and keep it, I have to give it the lowest rating because of the halo problem and the terrible service to fix the problem. The TV is fine, but the halo completely ruins it for me -- it shows up as a blue/purple circular haze in the lower middle screen in a good number of high contrast scenes (extreme example: Harry Potter 5, chapter 2 - when Nymphadora makes her entry holding a point source light into Harry's dark room).

My experience with 3 Samsung service companies in the DC area has been
horrible. The first two companies Samsung customer service scheduled for me never showed up and never returned calls. People from the 3rd one did show up but appeared completely clueless about the problem. By now I have this quite well researched -- I showed them various movie frames where the halo crops up, and I also showed them test images from avsforum (search for posts by MLXXXp on Samsung LED rear projector owners thread). But they wanted to take the TV away for tests and then decide what to do about it. When I showed them the consumer alert on this site they said they know nothing about that problem.

I also talked to a supervisor at Samsung customer service. She refused to assign another service company or have them perform the service at my home even when I suggested that I may have to return the TV. I pointed the alert to her as well, to which she said that Samsung can not be responsible for any alert that amazon puts on it's site.

Be prepared to potentially go through all this if you are buying it. Mine is going back.

UPDATE (1/25/08): I have returned this TV now.

With Amazon's GREAT price on this TV, had to pick one up. I find that the Sony A2000 & A2020 has a lot of motion blur, and while the Mitsubishi was good in my opinion, too many reviews put the Samsungs higher for color accuracy (Mitsu's 6-color light system isn't any good if the colors are all off) among a host of other things. And yes, this thing does 1080p over component video on an Xbox 360! Next step...have to test my HD-DVD player on my Xbox 360 to see if I'm getting true 1080p out of that too...all with component cables and not VGA too! On screen menus are good, colors are vivid and amazingly bright. The cabinet seems a little flimsy. You can easily shift the cabinet and "bend" the screen. It seems to settle pretty well when moving it, and that is probably the only thing I question about this TV. The picture and inputs are rock solid. I chose this over spending several hundred more on the 6189S because the upper model only has HDMI 1.3 spec that I would care about, and the more I have read the more it appears that HDMI 1.3 is probably 5 years away from ANYthing being produced in it, and perhaps 10 years from HD television using it. By then, we'll probably have leapfrogged over HDMI anyway and it will be a moot technology.
