They're stunning.
The LCD backlighting is projected at 30,000hrs, compared to the ~3,000 for current dlp (which is funny because I'm still on my first bulb from 2004 and we watch tv a lot). Anyhow I'm finding it hard to find reference to Samsung using the LCD backlighting, but I did find references to 3d-tv and nearly flat dlp systems (by Samsung).
