For those patiently awaiting the release of the first LED backlit HDTVs, your time draws near, friends. Step aside, NuVision -- Samsung's officially posted their HL-S5679W LED-backlit 1080p DLP HDTV, which should result in a 20,000 hour lifespan with faster startups and even better color using the already infamous colormongering DLP system. You'll also get such features as dual HDMI inputs, a 4,000:1 contrast ratio picture, and Samsung's DNIe Digital Natural Image Engine. Perhaps most surprisingly, however, is the 56-incher can be found listed online for less than $4,000, even if it is still in "coming soon" status.
