Samsung brings top notch displays every year and showcases them in January at the CES. This year was no different as the South Korean giant unveiled its Plasma TV series and 3D LED series at the Consumer Electronics Show.
If you were a visitor at the CES, it was almost impossible to miss these new LED displays featuring 3D capabilities and coming in a gorgeous design.
The display that attracted the most attention was the flagship ES8000 model, bringing top notch quality and an improved design in comparison to last year's models from the company.
The ES8000 is truly a quality 3D LED TV, but if you're looking for something more affordable this year, you can't go wrong with Samsung's ES7500, ES7100, ES6500, ES6100, EH6000 and EH5300 LED TV series for 2012.
