Samsung Introduces 1.1 Inch Thick Energy Efficient 50-inch Plasma

Samsung has promised to make a 50-inch plasma that is barely over an inch thick, which is far thinner than plasmas normally are, as well as greatly reducing the amount of energy the plasma would consume.

Samsung has reportedly made a CES promise a reality with their ultra-thin 50 inch 8-Series plasma set. Amazingly, the 50 inch set is a mere 1.1 inch thick which is easily half of the current standard for flat HDTVs - specifically plasma HDTVs.

Samsung reports that they have found ways to make their latest version of 50 inch HDTV sets 40 percent more energy efficient. Critics with a focus on "green" topics have recently been leaning towards LCD HDTVs with their praise as they are more mindful of their energy use.

There is though that there would be a follow up set sized at 58 inches from the Samsung 8-Series lineup. Ship dates are not known.
