which is better? Panasonic versus Samsung 3D TV

Posted by fauzan masykur |

In the 3D TV market, there are two brands that have been floating around: Samsung and Panasonic. With these expensive devices, how can you be sure that you are purchasing the right product for your preferences and budget? The folks over at 3D TV Buying Guide weigh in the differences between Samsung PN50C8000 and Panasonic TC-P50VT25 (pictured).

When it comes to image viewing, there is little to tell apart, after all, there aren’t that many 3D TV to compare with. The reviewers noticed more natural color on the Samsung TV, which is just the same when viewing non-3D content. They have also noticed some out-of-focus picture element when using the Panasonic model.

Switching between Standard Definition and HD is also considered. While the contents in the Panasonic produced vibrant and vivid images, it still needs to be calibrated a bit to tone down because the image tends to get saturated. Meanwhile, the Samsung model has a balance of color information and uniformity, while presented in clean and clear manner. The colors may be a bit washed out on some occasions, but further viewing reveals them to be realistic enough.

When it comes to appearance, Panasonic decides not to abuse the aesthetics, with its 3D TV presented on a black gloss 2.25″ bezel framing and a dark teal green screen that contrasts poorly with the black frame. The Samsung, meanwhile, has less than 2″ of matte dark frame, includes a clear neck on the swiveling table top stand, and a dark black screen.

Overall, the website judges the Samsung PN50C8000 as a superior 3D TV model. Looks like the bar has been set pretty high among the current models. With the introduction of newer versions of 3D TV, expect more features and exciting design elements to come.

Samsung to Produce Prescripted 3D Glasses

Posted by fauzan masykur |

Sure, watching movies in 3D can be a treat to the sense of sight, but the trouble is that the glasses being worn by viewers work best for people with perfect or near-perfect vision. This dilemma may happen even if they put on their existing glasses or contact lenses.

Don’t fret, though, because Samsung has the solution for that, as they plan to develop 3D glasses with common prescriptions for a more comfortable 3D TV viewing experience.

Now if only there are a lot of stuff they can watch on 3D TV… and we wonder whether these will work on 3D movies.

2009 News : Samsung Behold II handled with less battery than we'd like

Posted by fauzan masykur |

Yesterday we showed you this bad boy behind a thick, hand-stopping sheet of glass, and today, we're taking you just a little closer to the action. The emphasis has to be on "just a little," unfortunately, because neither T-Mobile nor Samsung were willing to slip a battery in the phone and let us play around with it, a surefire indication that the firmware isn't baked to a golden brown yet -- and when you consider that they're promising the Behold II in time for the holidays, the clock's definitely ticking. Would we pick this over a myTouch 3G? Probably, yeah -- especially with the better cam -- but let's be real, the Fender Limited Edition is another story altogether.

New Windows Mobile 6.5: a family portrait

Can you name them all? Don't worry, it's a lot to keep track of. Clockwise we have the HTC Tilt 2 (AT&T), Toshiba TG01 (not announced for US), HTC Imagio (Verizon), HTC Pure (AT&T), Samsung Intrepid (Sprint) and LG GM750 (not announced for US). It's a pretty diverse roundup, with two QWERTY phones in the mix and an incredible variety of home screens and themes, though all six do house touchscreens -- resistive, of course. Check out a super quick meet and greet after the break.

Got a cool grand to drop on a Windows Phone? Oh, yeah? Then have a gander at Samsung's latest fashion piece, the Armani-branded M7500. The cool cats over at PhoneArena managed to get their paws around a unit, and as predicted, they didn't hesitate to bust out the camera and give us all a good look. They also took the chance to give us a brief overview of how the handset handled, calling it "bulky even for a WinMo smartphone," though praising the high-res display and well-spaced keyboard. Feel free to hit the read link if you're interested in more, but don't be shocked to hear more than a little criticism.
