In May we highlighted the top of the line Samsung LED HDTV. Back then the Samsung UN55B8000 was the ultimate LED TV from Samsung. Now a new model in the Samsung 8 Series LED TVs is the top dog: The Samsung UN55B8500.
The Samsung 55-inch UN55B8500 (46-inch UN46B8500 is also available) offers a higher Dynamic contrast ratio of 7,000,000:1 compared to the 5,000,000:1 the UN55B8000 series offers.

Additional features of the Samsung UN55B8500 compared to the UN55B8000 include InfoLink and USB 2.0 Movie- Multi-Media Center Movie, JPEG support.
So clearly the difference is in the panel and not in the features.
Currently the Samsung UN55B8500 sells for $4,049.00 (MSRP $4,499.99) on Amazon.com and the Samsung UN55B8000 sells for $3,009 (MSRP: 3,899.99) on Amazon.com.

Is 2,000,000:1 more in dynamic contrast ratio worth $1,000? It is difficult to say and it would be best to have the opportunity to see both LED HDTVs next to each other.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
