First Look: The Samsung 55″ 240Hz 3D HDTV

October 14, 2009 by  

14oct09_sm24055Engadget HD has a preview of the upcoming Samsung 3D HDTV, and it’s supposed to be pretty breathtaking indeed, if first rumors are true.

More from the post:

Look, we know this 3D thing is as likely to sink as it is to swim right now, but we have to hand it to Samsung — it’s pursuing the idea with some pretty hefty ambition. A 55-inch 1080p panel with a true 240Hz refresh rate is a decent base on which to build your paradigm-shifting new offering. Using a set of “shutter” glasses, which rapidly alternate between blocking out the left and right eye, the set is capable of delivering the full 240Hz quality, debatable as its benefits may be. Of course, the value or otherwise of a TV like this is going to be found only by experiencing its output in person, so if you’re somewhere near Seoul this week, head on down to the IMID 2009 conference to get an eyeful of an early model.

We’re not sure about the long-term benefits of a 3D technology that might not ever come to roost, but 240Hz and 55″ inches of the latest LCD HDTV Samsung technology sound good to us.
