Samsung is not new to DLP. In fact, they
are primarily the reason that DLP TVs have rose so quickly in popularity. They are presenting the projector market with
two new DLP based
. They both are based on the TI HD2 Dark Chip 3 DMD (did you follow that) and are suppose to be able to
produce blacks that are comparable to CRT based projectors. While I am not calling them a liars I really do not believe
that statement till I can see one.
Both projectors come with the normal array of inputs like DVI-D (HDCP
compliant), component, S-Video and VGA. The lack of HDMI threw me off for a second but do you really need to send the
digital audio to the projector; no, so DVI makes sense.
Both units are currently on Samsung's
website and are available for purchase. The SP-H710AE
goes for $4,000 and
its big brother, the SP-H800BE
, $12,000. It is to
bad that the later of the two is not 1080p.
