There will be two companies making LED DLP’s this year. I already mentioned Samsung, but I did not know about Akai. They have a 42″ for $1799 (PT42DL27L) coming out in March and a 52″ for $2199 (PT52DL27L) coming out in May. I’d be interested in the latter based on screen size. Considering the Samsung 56″ is expected to be $3999, these prices are really good. Have to see a review to see how they stack up.
So now I’m tracking 3 potential suitors for my HDTV:
- Akai 52″ PT52DL27L
- Samsung 56″ HL-S5679W
- Sony 55″ 2nd Generation SXRD
