Has anyone heard anything more about this TV that uses LEDs instead of a color wheel? I've read the press releases from Samsung and scuttlebutt from CNET from CES. I'm hoping that it is still arriving state-side by April/May. What really got me excited is that this tv will be able to process a 1080p signel, right? Don't burst my bubble now...

Thanks

Hi, just curious, but "it does have burn in" comes from what information? I have yet to see any reference to burn in with DLP, and since the product is still two months into the future, obviously nobody has lived with one long enough to have had that problem. Just curious. Thanks, take care!

No burn in!
It is still a DLP. The light source is different than the current model.

The LED based DLP's will be available in both 720p and 1080p.

LED = light emitting diode, a illumination source.
LCD = liquid crystal display

LCDs can NOT burn in, because they don't use chemical phosphors. CRTs, Plasmas, and SED displays use phosphors.
