New LED 3D TV’s 2010: Panasonic, Samsung, Sony, LG, Philips

A few years ago we started to see CRT TVs fall out of fashion as consumers had a new type of TV — LCD. These were much thinner than the former. If you were to tell consumers that LCD TVs would get much thinner within a few years, they would have said that you were crazy. Well that is just what has happened with the introduction of LED.

These have now been around for over a year now, but they are getting thinner again. CES 2010 took place at the start of the year and had on show a new range of LED TVs, but with a small difference — the introduction of 3D technology. There are a number of new LED television sets to choose from in 2010, your decision will depend on a number of things, price, specs and design.

When it comes to LED TVs, one company leading the charge is Samsung, they are to launch three new models all capable of 3D — yes, yet another new technology — these include the C7000, C8000 and C9000 Series. These TVs have now started to hit the US market; the C7000 Series comes in 46- and 55-inch models. The C8000 and C9000 Series also comes with 46- and 55-inch models, the larger 65-inch model will be released in May.

Panasonic always seems to be late to the party than Samsung, there is a number of reasons for this, but the main one has to do with getting its technology right, there is no denying that Panasonic is one of the best TV makers on the planet. They did debut a 3DTV back in 2008, but we seem to be waiting a while to get an ultra thin LED TV, we all know how much Panasonic loves Plasma, which is now considered old technology.

Sony will be one of the latest consumer electronics companies to launch their first 3D LED TV, this will happen in June. There will be three models released, one of which is the HX800 and HX600 will use Sony’s LED edge backlit technology, with the latter offering backlighting with local dimming.

LG is on par with Samsung when it comes to its TV technology, with consumers often saying that the later has the slight edge. The best model coming from LG this year will be the Infinia LX9900 LED 3DTV, but do not expect this to be cheap. The model will not cost as much as a Panasonic or Sony, but still much more than you have been used to paying for an LG.

There is to be other models from LG, but they will not come with active shutter glasses as the model does above. Other models we can expect to see this year from the Korean company include: LX9500 series, LH950 and the LX6500.

Philips is one consumer electronics maker who is not having a huge push with its LED TV or 3D range, but they do have the 3D-ready 9000 series coming this year. We wonder how this company will ever compete with the likes of LG or Samsung, who seem to launch more TV models in a year than Phillips does in five.

We know two things, 2010 will be the year of LED TVs and 3D TVs, but will you be jumping on the bandwagon. For more details on each model visit Gizmag

I purchased an LG LCD/LED flat-screen television in January 2012. In late June or early July the television stopped turning on. I contacted LG and a service contractor was dispatched to repair the television. It was approximately a week between when the television broke and I contacted LG and when it was repaired. During the week of October 1st through October 5th the television broke again (the brightness level began flickering and an intermittent blue bar, approximately 1/5th the width of the screen, appeared vertically down the side of the screen and I do not recall exactly which day the… Read more »

Sharp is an okay manu. and that’s prob why they weren’t mentioned. Pioneer was the BEST television manu. out and they dissolved because normal people wouldnt pay 5k for a tv with all the features in the world when they could pay 1k and be at a happy medium. Panasonic is a leader in all technologies because of the fact that they purchased Pioneer’s technology and has now created the BEST 3D images and BEST 2D images industry wide.

Excellent Evening, I usually do not normally put up feedback on web, as I prefer to study only.

Hello. It was intersting reading all the new LED TV's and 3D that are coming from Samsung, LG and Sony. They are definitely leaders in this technology. Philips is a fringe player as it seems that the TV business for them is slowly diminishing and going the route of the likes of Hitachi, Pioneer and Fujitsu who have all disappeared from the TV market. But writing about Panasonic as a leader in LED technology is like comparing apples and oranges. Panasonic is definitely not in any shape or form a leader in this sphere and their market share is negligible… Read more »
