Product Overview

The 50 Inch HL-P5063W, is one of 8 models of widescreen HDTV / DLP televisions (all of the Samsung DLP televisions are HDTV devices) that Samsung is currently marketing. The Samsung DLP lineup is segregated into 3 basic types we will call basic, ultra-slim bezel, and pedestal models. Within the basic DLP lineup, the Samsung range is from 46", 50", 56", and 61". This television is likely one of Samsung's most popular, and competes in a high-volume screen size segment. Furthermore, as Samsung claims to be the volume leader in DLP television production, this model is likely to be one of the most popular DLP models currently.

This model had a suggested retail price of $2799 at the time of intiail analysis, however we have seen models available online for as little as under $1900 up to $3000+.

Design Notes

It appears that the entire device, including all of the sub-assemblies, except the Philips light driver / ballast are of Samsung design and manufacture. Of course, key component level devices are NOT of Samsung manufacture - most obviously the TI core DLP chips and Digital Micromirror Device, or Hysonic mirror actuator. However, it appears, based on part markings that most of the light engine mechanicals except the core light engine opticals (light condenser and final projection optical housing / lenses) are also of Samsung design and manufacture. These core opticals and the light wheel assembly are likely from other sources, but were not identifiable through markings. We can only hypothesize as to the sourcing of these critical components.
