Information on the mysterious PN63B590

by toyand / May 3, 2009 11:55 PM PDT

Hi,

Just wanted to know if anyone has heard about this Plasma panel, rumoured to be the second 63 incher that Samsung will offer this year (in addition to the PN63B550). I've only seen this referenced, and there's no actual data on it from either Samsung or press releases.

As it stands it's rumoured that this unit will have some of the improved display technologies (glare filter? Cinemasmooth?) of the 8 series but without the internet widgets, thinness etc. And of course will have a larger size than anything in the 8 series.

Any info people have confirming or denying this unit would be great! I'm almost at the point of picking up a PN58B860 right now but I would love to get a slightly bigger panel if possible.

toyand,

It exists, and is coming.

Details to follow, hopefully shortly, and naturally - subject to change until the actual release. Cinema Smooth, I've been told, will be a feature.

According to Best Buy, they have this in stock now. They even had one on the floor. However, it is not even on their website yet, so there's no details.

The salesman was perplexed as well, that they had an item on sale that had no details. There wasn't even a tag on it with specs.

I was all set to buy the B550, but now I'm uncertain.

I meant either confirm or deny the rumored specs. Happy

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
