Ultimate AV Review: Samsung HL-S5686W 56" 720p DLP


Sometimes we feel the products that are reviewed are the items people can ether not afford, or, don't want. But this is not the case with Samsung's mainstream 56-inch DLP -- the HL-S5686W. Ultimate AV has this thing up on its bench, probably a TV stand to be honest, and as given it a thorough run-down. Overall, they like the set and praise its picture. It wasn't as smooth as the reference 55-inch Hitachi plasma, but there is a huge difference in price. This 56-incher can be found under $2000 even though it MSRPs for $2500. Sure, the DLP has some flaws but many people can look past the O.K. black levels and soft picture for the price.
