Samsung LED TV Full HD
7th June 2010, Monday – I have listed a Samsung LED television for my next major upgrade of my computing system. I like a model that is on display at the International Convention Center, Berakas in conjunctions with the Brunei’s International Halal Products Expo 2010 that was held from 3rd June 2010 to 5th June 2010.
The model is UA26C4000. It is a 26in LED TV which has full HD capability. It costs BND999 and comes with a DVD Player with 1080P upscaling (Philips Model:DVP3360K) and a HD broadcast indoor antenna (ANT-300). I may prefer the outdoor antenna because I usually experience signal lost with the indoor antenna with my current analog television.
The good thing about this Series 4000 is that I do not need to buy a set-top box in order to watch the digital broadcast including the HD broadcast.
Radio Television Brunei (RTB) is doing high definition trial broadcast since months ago. And according to the press report, RTB will broadcast FIFA South Africa 2010 football match in high definition.
I intend to put this TV set on my work table to replace the current LCD display. So, it will be my main computer display. I like to do my work with big (but not oversize) display. Would it be a good idea, especially to my eye when compare of using dedicated computer monitor? I do not know. I think about it later.
