The 87 series of digital projection televisions from Samsung is part of their 2007 lineup of HDTVs, and situates on the higher end of their lineup. As opposed to the less expensive 76 series models the 87 series forgoes the use of traditional lamps and uses a new LED system. Samsung claims LEDs result in a better picture while extending the life of the television and reducing power consumption. The 87 series uses the same wide angle lens system resulting in the "UltraThin" marketing name, with the televisions coming in at a thickness of 15.4 inches.
Specification and feature wise there is little to distinguish the 76 and 87 series a both feature a native resolution of 1080p with support for 24Hz playback. Both contain a contrast ration of 10,000:1 and the 87 series includes support for 3D content with the purchase of a separate $100 add-on kit.
