Samsung Launches New Plasma Sets

The very top of the plasma line, however, won't be available until April.

This month marks the release of seven new plasma TVs from Samsung, all of which take advantage of Samsung's new Plasma+1 design.

Thanks to a new plasma design, Samsung has been able to up screen size by a full inch while at the same time reducing the bezel. Sure it's only an inch, but going from a 50 inch set to a 51 inch set is nothing to scoff at.

With the entry-level plasmas already out, this month sees the release of the similarly inexpensive D490 series in both 43 and 51 inch sizes. The height of this month's releases is the D6500 which introduces Wi-Fi and an ultra-slim design.

If you're looking forward to the top of the line D7000 and D8000 models, then you'll have to wait until they hit in April.
