Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Samsung HLN617W 61-inch DLP Television  - Samsung HLN617W 61-inch DLP Television
Thu, October 14 2004 | 11:24PM | PermaLink Feedback?

Once we had this Samsung DLP screen it set up in the middle of the office, nearly everyone in the PCstats labs had to wander over once or twice for a closer look (especially when we were 'testing' Doom3 on it, but that's another story). Samsung's HLN617W retails for slightly under $3,000 USD making it extremely attractive compared to similarly sized plasma screens which generally go for more than double this price... Well, actually there aren't any equivalently sized LCD screens, which sort of gives DLP a nice unfair advantage in our opinion. ;-)

Off the cuff, the Samsung HLN617W boasts a laundry list of features as you might expect. For starters the display is a little over 19" deep, and a hundred pounds light. At the heart of the unit rests a second generation Texas Instruments 0.8" Digital Micro Device, which has a native resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. This resolution matches HDTV's 720p, pixel for pixel, and for television signals it features automatic conversion to 720p.
