REVIEW: Samsung LE-52F96BD Part 7
Here, the signal inputs are managed: as well as selecting the signal source, the user can assign his or her own names to the inputs so as to be better able to differentiate amongst them. Other functions are: "Anynet+", control of devices via HDMI, and "Wiselink", which makes it possible to access a USB data medium.
This is the complement to the menu option "Analogue channel", except that the settings and channel management for DVB-T mode (digital aerial television) can be accessed here.
The Wiselink function allows images to be displayed in JPEG format and music to be played back in MP3 standard. A slideshow using photos saved on a USB stick can also be started and played back to music. Images can be zoomed in on and turned. Video clips, regardless of the format, can not be played back.
Wiselink- menu: Here, holiday photos from a USB stick can be displayed.
The Samsung LE-52F96BD models sold in Europe come with S-MVA panels from the Taiwanese panel specialist Chi Mei Optoelectronics. The panel is run on 8 Bit pro RGB colour channel. The F96 has a native resolution of 1.920 x 1.080 pixels (FullHD).
The surface of the panel has a reflective layer which Samsung calls "Super Clear Panel" and which increases colour brilliance considerably. The disadvantage is that the surroundings are reflected in an irritating way on the panel surface, especially for dark film scenes and bright sunlight. However, with the right lighting and an indirect light source, this problem can be well overcome.
1.152 white LEDs are located on the BLU control board and divided into 96 zones of 12 LEDs each.
The special thing about the F96 LCD TVs is their LED backlight which is divided into 96 zones. Every zone on the LE-52F96BD is composed of 12 LEDs and can be regulated independently of the other zones in terms of brightness. Overall, 1,152 LEDs are used to illuminate the image.
Conventional LCD TVs have CCFL backlights. These fluorescent tubes are located on the edges of the panel and the light is spread across the entire image surface by means of a diffuser. CCFL backlights are not individually dimmable like the LED backlight.
