This is a 50 inch screen unit in the thin bezel style cabinet featuring the very best technology that Samsung has to offer in its DLP line at the current time. There are only two exceptions to this. The S5086W supports 720p progressive scan resolution and a 2,500 to 1 contrast ratio. Both are a bit shy of the 1080p resolution and 10,000:1 contrast ration found on some of the other DLP televisions by Samsung. Samsung’s idea seems to be to give the consumer a wide variety of options and prices to best match his own needs and budget. The exclusive Cinema Smooth light engine and the Digital Natural image engine (DNle) ensure the very best High Definition signal processing and results in a crystal clear picture that is stunning in its detail. The Color is enhanced with a 10 bit processing system and Samsung’s unique color wheel that has five segments and is larger than the older style wheels.
The SR5 TruSurround XT speakers are 10 watt surround speakers hidden in the cabinet, and match audio quality to the high quality picture. The input/output array is complete, but many Home Theater owners need little more than the two HDMI interface inputs. These connections allow easy hook up of all components without the normal mess of wires behind the television. Like most of the DLP televisions made by Samsung, there is a PC input and the unit can serve as an oversized computer monitor. This feature will become more and more critical to the Home Theater enthusiast as computers move more and more into the video and audio download area. Also, like most Samsung DLP televisions, there is a V-Chip parental control device that allows certain programs to be blocked. The Samsung also has a very interesting feature called “My Color Control” that allows three primary colors to be adjusted separately.
