The 6188W is Samsung’s fully loaded offering in a 61 inch screen size. It is packaged with a bezel design cabinet. It features Next Generation DLP chips from Texas Instruments and Samsung’s own exclusive Cinema Smooth light engine. The resolution is 1080p progressive scan which can handle all HD formats. The Samsung DLP models pay a lot of attention to color. This model has a 10 bit processing system, and the color wheel that is a major part of the DLP technology has five segments rather than the normal four. The color wheel is also larger than normal and spins a bit faster at 14,400 rpms. The colors produced by this improved technology really have to be seen to be appreciated. There is virtually no distortion even on rapidly changing images such as found in sporting events and actions shows.
Samsung equips most of their HD televisions with two 10 watt surround sound speakers, and the 6188W is no different. The V-Chip allows parental control, and is just one of the extras included on this model. Two HDMI inputs highlight a complete connection array. This includes a USB port and a PC compatible input that turns this unit into a giant 61 inch computer monitor. The ease of connectivity and the ability to quickly reproduce colors makes this a treat for gamers. The bezel design and a depth of 17.6” makes it easy to find a place for it in your Home Theater set up. The DLP does not have the flat profile that you find on the other HD formats, but this is hardly noticed once the quality of the picture is viewed.
