Samsung has unveiled their complete 2010 portfolio of LED-TVs at CES 2010. You can start drooling because the 2010 Samsung line-ip is more beautiful than ever. Samsung's new high-end series are to be called 7000, 8000 and 9000 and supports 3D. The 9000 model is only 8 mm thick.

We have now received Samsung C8000 for a review: Samsung 3D LED-TV (C8000) received

Samsung LED TV C9000

Samsung has exhibited their new flagship. The 9000 series is thinner than ever and more beautiful than ever with a design in silver metal and black. The new LED-TV (LCD with LED) also features 3D support, which can be enjoyed with 3D content in 2010.

The secret behind the ultra-thin frame of 8 mm is a Edge LED backlight, where the LEDs have been placed along the edges of the panel. In order to make the 9000 series even thinner, Samsung has also moved some of the control electronics into the stand, which can be rearranged when TV needs to be wall mounted.

Samsung's new 9000 series can display true 3D content together with a 3D Blu-ray players, but it can also convert 2D content into 3D (although the quality is probably far from true 3D).

Developed with a completely new remote control the 9000 series seeks the Apple look. The new remote has a touch-sensitive screen. The remote can even function as an extra screen, and you can watch TV directly on your remote while watching Blu-Ray on the TV.

You can even browse through all your music, photos and video from another PC at home using DLNA technology. Once you've found the vacation photos from last year on the extra screen on the remote, you can"beat the air" with the remote towards the TV and the content will now be displayed full screen on your TV.

Samsung has also presented their 8000 series of LED-TVs, which has a new design that combines silver metal with a transparent framework.

The 8000 series is not as slim as its big brother in the 9000 series but Samsung proclaims that even though the 8000 series has Edge LED technology, the R&D department have been able to utilize some of the advantages of the local dimming system.
It’s hard to tell what Samsung means by this because local dimming technologies is typically associated with LEDs behind the LCD panel (backlit LED).
