On the Samsung forum, we had fun with the robot by throwing cookies, coins, and various obstacles. In a word, they practically drove the poor fellow. Look at the video, how this entertainment of journalists took place, it was fun.

I can't evaluate how the robot cleans, I think that it is approximately at the level of its relatives. But the performance characteristics are announced, so they should focus on. So, the eyes of the robot are 38 sensors, plus it remembers the position of obstacles, zones in the house. The charging station recharges the battery in two hours, and the cleaner is ready to go on exploits again. It is possible to prohibit cleaning in certain areas, the kit includes a control panel. Nice toy, not worse than analogues. Knowing Samsung's strategy, we can expect a democratic price for this device, although the Koreans at the booth shrugged and kept silent. They didn’t talk about the cost, as well as about the timing of the appearance of such a robot.

Another vacuum cleaner is Samsung Aquatic, it has a small tornado inside it, that is, a cyclone. In this man-made whirlpool, the vacuum cleaner filters dust, allergens and cleans the house. Something similar about the principle of the cyclone was broadcast by a TV in a commercial advertisement of a brand a few years ago, as a person far from vacuum cleaners, I can never evaluate it. But the abundance of these names, technologies around one device, it somehow scares. I want the vacuum cleaner to just clean and that's it. Power is probably important. Design. But technologies that are difficult to explain in a store and show the difference on your fingers? Definitely not important. You need to advertise the result. But, again, this is my view of things.

The Virus Doctor plasma air ionizer is designed for use at home, different body colors, backlight, and within 20 minutes the air will be disinfected from most types of various viruses and bacteria. You can carefully reproduce the name of the underlying technology, but I think for most consumers these big words will not say anything at all. Useful gizmo, especially for those who have children (only for God's sake do not turn it on all day or all night, 20 minutes a day and without children indoors is enough). There are analogues from other companies, here you need to choose the cost, design, and even the banal availability in the store. Somehow these air purifiers reminded me of Living Colors from Philips, but those are just lamps, and here is another additional function. I think that I will take such a device home, at the same time I will share my impressions. Why not a gadget?

Manufacturers are so persistent in releasing microwaves that I sometimes get the impression that someone is buying tons of them. Perhaps the world of bachelors is infinitely far from me, but in our family the microwave oven is used extremely rarely, it acts as a piece of kitchen furniture. Maybe someone needs something like this, I don't know. In my opinion, an ordinary stove wins in that the taste of food is different, although, again, these are my prejudices that I do not want to impose on you. The model of the oven is OmniPRO with a volume of 36 liters, it has a weight sensor, programs for cooking various dishes, intelligent defrost, double grill, browning mode and so on. The more you read about this stove, the more you realize that it is something akin to a spaceship. There are simpler items in my kitchen, but perhaps there are those who will fall for OmniPRO and then, as it happens, continue to use one or two functions.

In the field of refrigerators, Samsung did not stand aside, in the Smart Touch series, the outer surface of these units is decorated with strazik ..., ugh, LEDs. The refrigerator can act as a Christmas tree, flash, shimmer. And to scare you if for some reason you wander into the kitchen at night to refresh yourself. The decision is extremely controversial and to some extent not European, for which Eastern brands are mercilessly scolded. Although, on the other hand, the touch screen, on which you can write notes or set the operating modes of the refrigerator, is quite appropriate, pleasant. It's good that only one model is covered with LEDs, while others are quite common. I thought that for bars, drinking establishments such a flashy model is just right. It is possible that Samsung also produced a unit not for homes. In any case, the image of a person with a kind of light music in the kitchen does not work for me.

It makes no sense to list the technical characteristics of refrigerators. They buy such a unit for ten years, or even more, study every squiggle, so that the buyer knows more about them than any journalist who has looked at these toys at the exhibition.

Ebooks

These are exactly the same models that our authors played with at CES at the beginning of the year - E6 and E101. In the near future we will get them for the test and share the details about their work. The devices look interesting, they have a highlight in the form of an electromagnetic stylus (it is used for handwriting), but everything needs to be tested in practice, in combat conditions. Ergonomics cannot be checked otherwise, the same Nook looks stylish, but it is not very pleasant to use it. In order not to waste time, I will not write about books again, there was plenty of information, watch the video, photos, this will be enough.

Printers

For June of this year, the company has planned a whole scattering of printers for home and small offices. I will give photos of devices and their technical characteristics, suddenly someone will like them and want to know more about them.

A low-cost laser printer will hit the market in April. Here are its characteristics:

Monitors

Several monitors were shown, the emphasis was on the fact that they have a special design. But if you remove this tinsel, then I liked the brightness, picture quality, and design of the Samsung SyncMaster PX2370 monitor.

This is an LED monitor, it has a built-in light sensor that adjusts the backlight depending on the external conditions. Resolution - Full HD (16:9), the specifications indicate that the monitor covers the entire sRGB color space. Please tell me what this means in practice and where applicable, thanks in advance. But, I repeat, the monitor is pleasant precisely in terms of picture quality. It turned out to be a nice machine, quite suitable for replacing my old SymcMaster, which works and works, but has an “outdated” diagonal of 20 inches. Obsolete.

Camera

Samsung has already tried to enter the DSLR market, but failed. The next attempt is prepared much better, in such a conservative market of photographic equipment for advanced amateurs and professionals, the company decided to educate a new generation of users and accustom them to their technique. It is impossible to move Canon or Nikon off the pedestal, people who are addicted to one brand or another have already acquired a lot of accessories, and they express their preferences quite clearly. Therefore, for advanced amateurs, the NX series of cameras is being released, its first representative is the NX10 in the 4/3 format that is so popular today. Interchangeable optics, but no mirror. Low price, good photo quality, traditionally good assembly from Samsung. In absentia, the cameras make an excellent impression. When confronted with them in life, not everything is so simple. For a person who is not familiar with DSLRs, this will be quite an interesting proposal. For a person corrupted by DSLRs, they will look strange. And this applies not only to the product from Samsung. On the other hand, the calculation goes to new users. What will come of this idea - we'll see in the future, and the camera has already reached us for the test, so you will learn the whole truth about the NX10 from the review. I won’t get ahead of myself, since I myself don’t know what our authors will find out in the process of studying the camera.

In the soap dish segment, the company's flagship is the EX1 model, which is quite an interesting solution. AMOLED display that guarantees good behavior in the sun, diagonal 3 inches. But the camera itself is small, comfortable, fits well in a small bag. I had a chance to play with this camera over the weekend, I can say that for home and family this is a very worthy, interesting solution. A good toy that gives high-quality pictures. And again, I will make a reservation that this solution, even though it is positioned as an advanced one, is quite ideal for those who point and shoot. The optics are not bad, but you can fully appreciate this device only after using it. I'll ask the guys to take the camera for a test.

The WB2000 allows high-speed shooting. This 10-megapixel camera is also small in size, but can record up to 1000 frames per second, which is still the exception rather than the rule for such devices. As a budget high-speed camera, this solution looks very interesting. Many applications can be found. Below are the specifications. From myself, I note that I am looking for an excuse to buy such a camera for myself, although I can’t remember a single moment when I needed to shoot at such a speed. But the desire to play with the camera is extremely high, somehow I realize it.

Mobile phones

Here, let me give a brief link to the main materials, since there was nothing new for us.

Audio/Video

Perhaps the highlight of the program, and indeed of the exhibition, were 3D TVs from Samsung assembled into one 3D cube. You put on glasses and enjoy the three-dimensional picture. In the technology itself, I am confused by the presence of additional points. If there were three-dimensional TVs without such an accessory, there would be no price for them. But even with glasses, the picture quality is excellent. In January, at the same CES, a collaboration with DreamWorks was announced, the company's films and cartoons will be exclusively available for Samsung TVs in 3D quality. What to say about them? Fabulous. Without any discounts, the displayed picture deserves praise. But, interestingly, even for ordinary TV programs, Samsung provided a 3D picture emulation mode, the TV itself creates it in real time. Unfortunately, it is this aspect (the most interesting in our penates) that has not been demonstrated. Too bad.

In my opinion, the development of 3D TVs will proceed at a rapid pace, so the change of generations will not take years, but once a year there will be an improvement. Yes, and prices for old TV will fall. So today these are products for technology pioneers, in three years - a mass product for everyone. Companies will definitely not agree with this interpretation, but their work is different. TVs from Samsung will appear on our market first, in any case, so they say in the company. Since you can show non-3D pictures on a regular page, there is no way to demonstrate the quality of images from TV sets.

A built-in version of Skype is available for 7000 and 8000 series TVs, you can chat with your friends using the TV (including video). We tested this function at the exhibition, everything works well. Also, TV and other devices have access to the Samsung application store, and there are also widgets from various suppliers, both global and Russian (now you can watch weather forecasts, match results, and so on on TV). The idea is very good, and Samsung is ahead of other brands in working with local content providers, for which it should be commended.

Blu-ray fans can buy a 3D Blu-ray player Samsung BD-C6900 in April for 14,000 rubles. Slim, nice design, plays 3D movies. The company boasts that the player loads a disc in 30 seconds (that's the time from loading to the start of playback) and that this is considered a very small result. Just like in top-end TVs, the [email protected] functionality has been added to the player, that is, the same content and features.

Notebooks

Nothing new was shown, the entire line of 2010 (the first half) was shown earlier. I refer you to this material.

Samsung WhiteBoard Presentation Display

This is the TS650 model, one of the coolest things that is guaranteed to grab attention. An ordinary monitor with a touch layer, you can draw diagrams, pictures on it, output files and immediately send them to other devices, be it laptops or, for example, an e-book from Samsung. The price is still silent, but for many corporations this is just a gift from heaven. The thing is chic, a lot of settings, we were busy with it for a very long time. A good toy, and most importantly, its usefulness is beyond doubt. For small companies, such a toy will be a little expensive, for everyone else - just right. We also plan to test her work and tell you about it.

For the scope of this review, there are products that are already well known or did not attract my attention, do not blame me. The most interesting thing you saw in the material. If you think that some of the products should be considered in a separate review, material, then write on the forum, we will agree with the company and prepare such material. Thank you and good mood.

Samsung forum for CIS countries. Version 1.0 of the 2010 spill

Events like the Samsung Forum are often held in various foreign cities and do not affect a specific region, but the whole world at once. Not so long ago in Barcelona, ​​Philips demonstrated a line of equipment for 2010, and we introduced you to the new products. But that event was made for the whole world, while Samsung is doing a kind of road show that affects certain regions. For the first time such an event took place in Russia, journalists from various CIS countries were invited to it. The format turned out, on the one hand, to be massive, on the other hand, it was possible to maintain the desired degree of the event. After the journalists, Samsung distributors arrived at the forum, they were able to calmly communicate with company representatives, see the equipment live and at the same time get acquainted with a number of secret developments that were not shown to the press for obvious reasons.

Some of the products are already on sale, some will appear later this year, but no global announcements, only demonstrations of existing solutions. For our regular readers, the section of the forum about phones is not of particular interest, while other products deserve attention and separate words. Therefore, we will divide all products into categories and focus on the most interesting of them.

Home devices

One of the toys, you can't call it otherwise, was a cleaning robot from Samsung called NaviBot, which looks like a big beetle. The similarity was strengthened by the paws that protruded from under it in all directions. There are several similar devices on the market, they have been known for several years, and Samsung is entering an already formed market. In Russia, top devices are sold so-so, the reason is the high cost, sometimes reaching up to 50,000 rubles. Companies below the rank produce similar solutions at an acceptable cost, my friend has a Roomba 570 from iRobot at home, the price for it is a little less than a thousand dollars. A toy that rides on the floor depicts cleaning, but it can’t really clean up and loses to an ordinary vacuum cleaner. It just dawned on me: such robotic vacuum cleaners are cleaning minor dust on the floor, an additional means of maintaining cleanliness, but not the main device. They will not replace a regular vacuum cleaner. So in this aspect, these devices should be considered, although they will immediately accuse me of not understanding anything about sausage trimmings, and these robots clean up perfectly. Well, what can I say in my defense, the power of self-hypnosis of those who spent considerable money on such toys is great.

On the Samsung forum, we had fun with the robot by throwing cookies, coins, and various obstacles. In a word, they practically drove the poor fellow. Look at the video, how this entertainment of journalists took place, it was fun.

I can't evaluate how the robot cleans, I think that it is approximately at the level of its relatives. But the performance characteristics are announced, so they should focus on. So, the eyes of the robot are 38 sensors, plus it remembers the position of obstacles, zones in the house.

Since you can show non-3D pictures on a regular page, there is no way to demonstrate the quality of images from TV sets.

A built-in version of Skype is available for 7000 and 8000 series TVs, you can chat with your friends using the TV (including video). We tested this function at the exhibition, everything works well. Also, TV and other devices have access to the Samsung application store, and there are also widgets from various suppliers, both global and Russian (now you can watch weather forecasts, match results, and so on on TV). The idea is very good, and Samsung is ahead of other brands in working with local content providers, for which it should be commended.

Blu-ray fans can buy a 3D Blu-ray player Samsung BD-C6900 in April for 14,000 rubles. Slim, nice design, plays 3D movies. The company boasts that the player loads a disc in 30 seconds (that's the time from loading to the start of playback) and that this is considered a very small result. Just like in top-end TVs, the [email protected] functionality has been added to the player, that is, the same content and features.

Home devices

One of the toys, you can't call it otherwise, was a cleaning robot from Samsung called NaviBot, which looks like a big beetle. The similarity was strengthened by the paws that protruded from under it in all directions. There are several similar devices on the market, they have been known for several years, and Samsung is entering an already formed market. In Russia, top devices are sold so-so, the reason is the high cost, sometimes reaching up to 50,000 rubles. Companies below the rank produce similar solutions at an acceptable cost, my friend has a Roomba 570 from iRobot at home, the price for it is a little less than a thousand dollars. A toy that rides on the floor depicts cleaning, but it can’t really clean up and loses to an ordinary vacuum cleaner. It just dawned on me: such robotic vacuum cleaners are cleaning minor dust on the floor, an additional means of maintaining cleanliness, but not the main device. They will not replace a regular vacuum cleaner. So in this aspect, these devices should be considered, although they will immediately accuse me of not understanding anything about sausage trimmings, and these robots clean up perfectly. Well, what can I say in my defense, the power of self-hypnosis of those who spent considerable money on such toys is great.

On the Samsung forum, we had fun with the robot by throwing cookies, coins, and various obstacles. In a word, they practically drove the poor fellow. Look at the video, how this entertainment of journalists took place, it was fun.

I can't evaluate how the robot cleans, I think that it is approximately at the level of its relatives. But the performance characteristics are announced, so they should focus on. So, the eyes of the robot are 38 sensors, plus it remembers the position of obstacles, zones in the house. The charging station recharges the battery in two hours, and the cleaner is ready to go on exploits again. It is possible to prohibit cleaning in certain areas, the kit includes a control panel. Nice toy, not worse than analogues. Knowing Samsung's strategy, we can expect a democratic price for this device, although the Koreans at the booth shrugged and kept silent. They didn’t talk about the cost, as well as about the timing of the appearance of such a robot.

Another vacuum cleaner is Samsung Aquatic, it has a small tornado inside it, that is, a cyclone. In this man-made whirlpool, the vacuum cleaner filters dust, allergens and cleans the house. Something similar about the principle of the cyclone was broadcast by a TV in a commercial advertisement of a brand a few years ago, as a person far from vacuum cleaners, I can never evaluate it. But the abundance of these names, technologies around one device, it somehow scares. I want the vacuum cleaner to just clean and that's it. Power is probably important. Design. But technologies that are difficult to explain in a store and show the difference on your fingers? Definitely not important. You need to advertise the result. But, again, this is my view of things.

The Virus Doctor plasma air ionizer is designed for use at home, different body colors, backlight, and within 20 minutes the air will be disinfected from most types of various viruses and bacteria. You can carefully reproduce the name of the underlying technology, but I think for most consumers these big words will not say anything at all. Useful gizmo, especially for those who have children (only for God's sake do not turn it on all day or all night, 20 minutes a day and without children indoors is enough). There are analogues from other companies, here you need to choose the cost, design, and even the banal availability in the store. Somehow these air purifiers reminded me of Living Colors from Philips, but those are just lamps, and here is another additional function. I think that I will take such a device home, at the same time I will share my impressions. Why not a gadget?

Manufacturers are so persistent in releasing microwaves that I sometimes get the impression that someone is buying tons of them. Perhaps the world of bachelors is infinitely far from me, but in our family the microwave oven is used extremely rarely, it acts as a piece of kitchen furniture. Maybe someone needs something like this, I don't know. In my opinion, an ordinary stove wins in that the taste of food is different, although, again, these are my prejudices that I do not want to impose on you. The model of the oven is OmniPRO with a volume of 36 liters, it has a weight sensor, programs for cooking various dishes, intelligent defrost, double grill, browning mode and so on. The more you read about this stove, the more you realize that it is something akin to a spaceship. There are simpler items in my kitchen, but perhaps there are those who will fall for OmniPRO and then, as it happens, continue to use one or two functions.

In the field of refrigerators, Samsung did not stand aside, in the Smart Touch series, the outer surface of these units is decorated with strazik ..., ugh, LEDs. The refrigerator can act as a Christmas tree, flash, shimmer. And to scare you if for some reason you wander into the kitchen at night to refresh yourself. The decision is extremely controversial and to some extent not European, for which Eastern brands are mercilessly scolded. Although, on the other hand, the touch screen, on which you can write notes or set the operating modes of the refrigerator, is quite appropriate, pleasant. It's good that only one model is covered with LEDs, while others are quite common. I thought that for bars, drinking establishments such a flashy model is just right. It is possible that Samsung also produced a unit not for homes. In any case, the image of a person with a kind of light music in the kitchen does not work for me.

It makes no sense to list the technical characteristics of refrigerators. They buy such a unit for ten years, or even more, study every squiggle, so that the buyer knows more about them than any journalist who has looked at these toys at the exhibition.

Ebooks

These are exactly the same models that our authors played with at CES at the beginning of the year - E6 and E101. In the near future we will get them for the test and share the details about their work. The devices look interesting, they have a highlight in the form of an electromagnetic stylus (it is used for handwriting), but everything needs to be tested in practice, in combat conditions. Ergonomics cannot be checked otherwise, the same Nook looks stylish, but it is not very pleasant to use it. In order not to waste time, I will not write about books again, there was plenty of information, watch the video, photos, this will be enough.

Printers

For June of this year, the company has planned a whole scattering of printers for home and small offices. I will give photos of devices and their technical characteristics, suddenly someone will like them and want to know more about them.

A low-cost laser printer will hit the market in April. Here are its characteristics:

Monitors

Several monitors were shown, the emphasis was on the fact that they have a special design. But if you remove this tinsel, then I liked the brightness, picture quality, and design of the Samsung SyncMaster PX2370 monitor.

This is an LED monitor, it has a built-in light sensor that adjusts the backlight depending on the external conditions. Resolution - Full HD (16:9), the specifications indicate that the monitor covers the entire sRGB color space. Please tell me what this means in practice and where applicable, thanks in advance. But, I repeat, the monitor is pleasant precisely in terms of picture quality. It turned out to be a nice machine, quite suitable for replacing my old SymcMaster, which works and works, but has an “outdated” diagonal of 20 inches. Obsolete.

Camera

Samsung has already tried to enter the DSLR market, but failed. The next attempt is prepared much better, in such a conservative market of photographic equipment for advanced amateurs and professionals, the company decided to educate a new generation of users and accustom them to their technique. It is impossible to move Canon or Nikon off the pedestal, people who are addicted to one brand or another have already acquired a lot of accessories, and they express their preferences quite clearly. Therefore, for advanced amateurs, the NX series of cameras is being released, its first representative is the NX10 in the 4/3 format that is so popular today. Interchangeable optics, but no mirror. Low price, good photo quality, traditionally good assembly from Samsung. In absentia, the cameras make an excellent impression. When confronted with them in life, not everything is so simple. For a person who is not familiar with DSLRs, this will be quite an interesting proposal. For a person corrupted by DSLRs, they will look strange. And this applies not only to the product from Samsung. On the other hand, the calculation goes to new users. What will come of this idea - we'll see in the future, and the camera has already reached us for the test, so you will learn the whole truth about the NX10 from the review. I won’t get ahead of myself, since I myself don’t know what our authors will find out in the process of studying the camera.

In the soap dish segment, the flagship of the company is the EX1 model, this is a rather interesting solution. AMOLED display that guarantees good behavior in the sun, diagonal 3 inches. But the camera itself is small, comfortable, fits well in a small bag. I had a chance to play with this camera over the weekend, I can say that for home and family this is a very worthy, interesting solution. A good toy that gives high-quality pictures. And again, I will make a reservation that this solution, even though it is positioned as an advanced one, is quite ideal for those who point and shoot. The optics are not bad, but you can fully appreciate this device only after using it. I'll ask the guys to take the camera for a test.

As a budget high-speed camera, this solution looks very interesting. Many applications can be found. Below are the specifications. From myself, I note that I am looking for an excuse to buy such a camera for myself, although I can’t remember a single moment when I needed to shoot at such a speed. But the desire to play with the camera is extremely high, somehow I realize it.

Mobile phones

Here, let me give a brief link to the main materials, since there was nothing new for us.

Audio/Video

Perhaps, the highlight of the program, and indeed of the exhibition, were 3D TVs from Samsung assembled into one 3D cube. You put on glasses and enjoy the three-dimensional picture. In the technology itself, I am confused by the presence of additional points. If there were three-dimensional TVs without such an accessory, there would be no price for them. But even with glasses, the picture quality is excellent. In January, at the same CES, a collaboration with DreamWorks was announced, the company's films and cartoons will be exclusively available for Samsung TVs in 3D quality. What to say about them? Fabulous. Without any discounts, the displayed picture deserves praise. But, interestingly, even for ordinary TV programs, Samsung provided a 3D picture emulation mode, the TV itself creates it in real time. Unfortunately, it is this aspect (the most interesting in our penates) that has not been demonstrated. Too bad.

In my opinion, the development of 3D TVs will proceed at a rapid pace, so the generational change will not take years, but once a year there will be an improvement. Yes, and prices for old TV will fall. So today these are products for technology pioneers, in three years - a mass product for everyone. Companies will definitely not agree with this interpretation, but their work is different. TVs from Samsung will appear on our market first, in any case, so they say in the company. Since you can show non-3D pictures on a regular page, there is no way to demonstrate the quality of images from TV sets.

A built-in version of Skype is available for 7000 and 8000 series TVs, you can chat with your friends using the TV (including video). We tested this function at the exhibition, everything works well. Also, TV and other devices have access to the Samsung application store, and there are also widgets from various suppliers, both global and Russian (now you can watch weather forecasts, match results, and so on on TV). The idea is very good, and Samsung is ahead of other brands in working with local content providers, for which it should be commended.

Blu-ray fans can buy a 3D Blu-ray player Samsung BD-C6900 in April for 14,000 rubles. Slim, nice design, plays 3D movies. The company boasts that the player loads a disc in 30 seconds (that's the time from loading to the start of playback) and that this is considered a very small result. Just like in top-end TVs, the [email protected] functionality has been added to the player, that is, the same content and features.

Notebooks

Nothing new was shown, the entire line of 2010 (the first half) was shown earlier. I refer you to this material.

Samsung WhiteBoard Presentation Display

This is the TS650 model, one of the coolest things that is guaranteed to grab attention. An ordinary monitor with a touch layer, you can draw diagrams, pictures on it, output files and immediately send them to other devices, be it laptops or, for example, an e-book from Samsung. The price is still silent, but for many corporations this is just a gift from heaven. The thing is chic, a lot of settings, we were busy with it for a very long time. A good toy, and most importantly, its usefulness is beyond doubt. For small companies, such a toy will be a little expensive, for everyone else - just right. We also plan to test her work and tell you about it.

For the scope of this review, there are products that are already well known or did not attract my attention, do not blame me. The most interesting thing you saw in the material. If you think that some of the products should be considered in a separate review, material, then write on the forum, we will agree with the company and prepare such material. Thank you and good mood.

    Mobile phones

    Here, let me give a brief link to the main materials, since there was nothing new for us.

    Audio/Video

    Perhaps, the highlight of the program, and indeed of the exhibition, were 3D TVs from Samsung assembled into one 3D cube. You put on glasses and enjoy the three-dimensional picture. In the technology itself, I am confused by the presence of additional points. If there were three-dimensional TVs without such an accessory, there would be no price for them. But even with glasses, the picture quality is excellent. In January, at the same CES, a collaboration with DreamWorks was announced, the company's films and cartoons will be exclusively available for Samsung TVs in 3D quality. What to say about them? Fabulous. Without any discounts, the displayed picture deserves praise. But, interestingly, even for ordinary TV programs, Samsung provided a 3D picture emulation mode, the TV itself creates it in real time. Unfortunately, it is this aspect (the most interesting in our penates) that has not been demonstrated. Too bad.

    In my opinion, the development of 3D TVs will proceed at a rapid pace, so the generational change will not take years, but once a year there will be an improvement. Yes, and prices for old TV will fall. So today these are products for technology pioneers, in three years - a mass product for everyone. Companies will definitely not agree with this interpretation, but their work is different. TVs from Samsung will appear on our market first, in any case, so they say in the company. Since you can show non-3D pictures on a regular page, there is no way to demonstrate the quality of images from TV sets.

    A built-in version of Skype is available for 7000 and 8000 series TVs, you can chat with your friends using the TV (including video). We tested this function at the exhibition, everything works well. Also, TV and other devices have access to the Samsung application store, and there are also widgets from various suppliers, both global and Russian (now you can watch weather forecasts, match results, and so on on TV). The idea is very good, and Samsung is ahead of other brands in working with local content providers, for which it should be commended.

    Blu-ray fans can buy a 3D Blu-ray player Samsung BD-C6900 in April for 14,000 rubles. Slim, nice design, plays 3D movies. The company boasts that the player loads a disc in 30 seconds (that's the time from loading to the start of playback) and that this is considered a very small result. Just like in top-end TVs, the [email protected] functionality has been added to the player, that is, the same content and features.

    Notebooks

    Nothing new was shown, the entire line of 2010 (the first half) was shown earlier. I refer you to this material.

    Samsung WhiteBoard Presentation Display

    This is the TS650 model, one of the coolest things that is guaranteed to grab attention. An ordinary monitor with a touch layer, you can draw diagrams, pictures on it, output files and immediately send them to other devices, be it laptops or, for example, an e-book from Samsung. The price is still silent, but for many corporations this is just a gift from heaven. The thing is chic, a lot of settings, we were busy with it for a very long time. A good toy, and most importantly, its usefulness is beyond doubt. For small companies, such a toy will be a little expensive, for everyone else - just right. We also plan to test her work and tell you about it.

    For the scope of this review, there are products that are already well known or did not attract my attention, do not blame me. The most interesting thing you saw in the material. If you think that some of the products should be considered in a separate review, material, then write on the forum, we will agree with the company and prepare such material. Thank you and good mood.
