(Page 1 of 4 )
Today, let’s take a look at two TVs. We'll start with the Samsung PN58B860 Plasma TV, a set filled with features and a great design. We'll also look at the Toshiba 55SV670U LCD TV, a backlit LCD TV with several adjustment settings and connectivity options.
Samsung PN58B860 Plasma TV
If thin is in, then Samsung has to be near the front of the line with its design for its newly-released PN58B860 plasma HDTV. The 58-inch PN58B860 has a mega-sleek design that is sure to improve the aesthetics of any room in which it is placed. Only 1.2 inches thick, the PN58B860 has a certain wow factor to it before it is even turned on.
It’s not all looks though, as it can handle 1080p/24 sources without a glitch, and produces a great picture from its sexy frame. It also has good connectivity options as well as a plethora of interactive features that let you go online to access content.
The real question is whether or not its super-thin design is really essential for your needs, and if you want to pay more to have such a luxury in terms of design. If the answer is yes, hopefully you have deep pockets, as the Samsung PN58B860 is now available for a suggested retail price of $3,199.99 from the manufacturer.
Let’s take a look at the features first. The Samsung PN58B860 has plenty of picture adjustments available to make even the pickiest video expert happy. You get four picture modes, each independent per input. This is a nice luxury to have so you don’t have to continuously adjust the picture modes back every time you switch to different inputs.
For the fans of “going green,” there exists the Eco picture mode, which adjusts the set’s backlight to reduce power consumption without having to sacrifice for lesser picture quality. As an aside to the “going green” features, you also get three power saving modes on the PN58B860. Besides the picture modes, you get five color temperature presets, dynamic contrast control, black tone control, color space control, and varied settings for noise reduction, to name a few. For HD sources, you can also toggle between four different aspect ratio modes.
