Whopping 75-inch LED television: Too much TV?

When it comes to big television screens -- and I'm talking really big here, in the 70-inch-plus realm -- the sky's the limit in the amount of money you can expect to pay.

Sharp recently began shipping a 90-inch LED for a cool $11 grand, and while it manages to keep the cost of its 80-inch screens (relatively) low, it's now up to brands like its Sharp's Elite offshoot and now Samsung to keep the cost of massive flagship TVs in the high four figures. As an example, Samsung's latest 75-inch TV will debut at a buck less than $10,000.

Samsung announced a 75-inch TV at CES 2012 as part of the UNES8000 series, but in the intervening time it appears the company has seen fit to give the big screen a higher model number. The Samsung UN75ES9000 is the company's new flagship, at least until the ES9500 OLED comes along, and promises some features not included on the not-as-impressive-as-hoped UNES8000.

The TV boasts a similar design to the ES8000 except the superthin, 0.31-inch bezel will now sport a luxurious rose gold finish and stand. In addition, the camera on top, used for gesture control and Skype, is now retractable.

The TV will use a combination of the company's Micro Dimming Ultimate (which is on the ES8000) and Precision Black Local Dimming technology (which isn't) to deliver what it claims will be the "highest contrast ratio on a Samsung Smart TV to date" for what that's worth. Given that the E8000 plasma has a fairly impressive dynamic range, this is quite a bold claim, especially for an LCD television. However, we have yet to determine if the set features edge-lighting or direct, full-array LED as yet -- direct LED can result in better dimming control and therefore better black levels.

Samsung says the TV's new features will provide a 30 percent improvement in black levels and also sharpness, and while I'm psyched about improvements in contrast a boost in sharpness sounds suspiciously like over-sharpening and is therefore bad. Furthermore, the TV will also gain a 60 percent improvement in brightness, but unless you're watching the TV in broad daylight or using it as digital signage this is less of a selling point.

At $9,999, the ES9000 is $2,000 more expensive than the 70-inch Sharp Elite PRO-70X5FD -- an amazing television in its own right -- but yet the Samsung is only 5 inches larger diagonally. It's therefore got some big, impressive shoes to fill.

The ES9000 also includes Sound Share, which the "step-down" TVs don't seem to, and which is designed to automatically and wirelessly connect the TV's audio to Samsung’s Wireless Audio Docks via a Bluetooth connection.

Lastly, and though not limited to the ES9000, the TV will be one of the first to play Angry Birds via gestures.

The TV is due to debut in August 2012 from "select" dealers for $9,999.

90+ inch LED would be the sh*t for sports and movies. Just wait a year or two and they'll be more options

I don't need much TV

42/54 inches is pretty much the perfect tv size for me.

Aside from watching events you can't attend for whatever reason with a group of people(charging a fee for mofo's you don't know that well,) fu*k having a tv that big.

If you get one that big, you're set up better include bean bag chairs, or some comfortable theater seating.

Too much? I think the writer of this article is too much of a f*ggot

Nah seriously 75 and 90 inch tvs aren't too big at all....get the biggest size possible in your price range I always say(factor in resolution, ratios and features)

Anything over 200 MHz is technically 3D compatible....just depends on how the manufacture utilizes it

I don't think I'll ever have a TV over 32". Don't have any patience to sit down and watch anything on tv or a movie for that matter.

It just depends on your situation. My situation, for instance, calls for a smaller TV because my entertainment area is not that big. I can definitely fit a 70-80 incher in there, but is it comfortable to watch? No. That's why I stick to 46-60. If you have a bigger area then a bigger TV won't hurt.
