Lots of us are the instant gratification sort, and there is nothing wrong with that. When we click a link online, we want it to open immediately, not sit there for 30 seconds while it tries to open. The same goes for watching TV, when we change inputs we want them to change now not sit there waiting.

The new line of Samsung DTVs that were recently unveiled use new tech from Silicon image that promises to speed the switching between inputs on the set. The tech is called InstaPort S.

According to Silicon Image, the tech allows the Samsung TVs to switch between and HDMI connected source in a single second. The typical time it takes to change inputs is four to seven seconds. That seems like a short delay, but it can feel frustratingly long when you just want to watch a movie or the big game.
