12 Jan 2009 | Rasmus Larsen |

Don't miss anything from CES 2009. See our <a href=/ces2009fair.php><b>huge CES 2009 section</b></a>.<br /><br />Samsung raises the bar for their flat-panel TVs with the launch of an entirely new line-up of LED HDTVs. The three new series are called 6000 (6 series), 7000 (7 series) and 8000 (8 series) and has been announced in 40-inches to 55-inches.<br /><br />The new 8000, 7000 and 6000 series build upon the success of Samsung’s first and second generation LED HDTV models. The TVs use LEDs as their primary light source, rather than traditional Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamps (CCFL).<br />Benefits of using LEDs include high dynamic contrast ratios, slim depths that allow for more artful designs, plus increased energy savings.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/samsung8000-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/samsung8000-1.jpg" alt="Samsung 8000" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Samsung 8000-serien</i></p><br />- <i>“Samsung has proven LED technology is a viable choice for consumers desiring the best picture possible from an LCD television.
