Best Picture I've Ever SeenPosted .
Speaking from a pure 'quality of picture' standpoint this TV is absolutely amazing. I went to this TV from a six year old rear-projection Sony DLP model and the difference in picture quality was like going from standard def to high def all over again! Scenes in LOST actually lose some of their believability because the picture is so much sharper - but that's a GREAT thing! Set up was super simple. The picture settings are superb out of the box but I did go in a tweak just a few items. Being an LED backlit TV it was REALLY bright on the showroom settings. In my dim living room I was able to turn the brightness down to about half of its default value and it looks perfect. Sports, movies, reality shows - all look amazing! The USB ports are a really cool feature too. I put a video from my Sony point-and-shoot camera on my USB key and played it on the TV through the USB port and it was absolutely gorgeous. The only downfall (and just a slight one at that) is the Internet widgets (powered by Yahoo). While they are cool, controlling them using the remote is a pretty painful experience. But since hooking up the TV to my Internet connection they have sent out two updates to the TV's software. Hopefully one of these updates will make the remote more responsive to better control the widgets. Typing username and password into some of the widgets is an agonizing experience, but thankfully they are saved for you. A widget like Twitter that requires you to type constantly is pretty much unusable (but still okay just for watching what other people are posting). I run all of my audio through my a/v receiver so I haven't used the TV speakers much. Not too qualified to speak to the sound quality. I wall-mounted the TV and ran all of the cables through the wall, and that makes the TV look absolutely brilliant. I love the glossy black bezel that is surrounded by a clear plexiglass border - very tech-cool! If you're looking simply for a great TV to watch your media on you can't go wrong. The picture is dead solid perfect!I would recommend this to a friend

best TV ever!!!Posted .
I have Had this TV for about 4-weeks. It's the best TV I have ever seen! The picture quality is the very best, nothing can come close to this picture. The high def is a must. If your spending this kind of money on a TV you have to get a high def tuner. With the HDMI connection the picture quality is better than life! Even if you dont have high def with the HDMI connected the picture is great on a lot of channels, but some channels dont look good, they can be fuzzy. We upgraded to high def a few days after buying this TV and it was unreal at how great of a picture this TV has. Blu-ray is even better! We also got the Samsung Blu-ray and it's like you are in the movie watching it in real life! The TV remote will also work with the Samsung Blu-ray, which is good because you only need one remote. You can even hide the Blu-ray and control it with the TV remote, which is what we did when we hung the TV on the wall (see photo). The sound is not great, but it's not bad. It's as good as any other LED TV. If you want something that will rock the room then you would need a aftermarket system anyway. The only thing I don't like is the the TV don't come with wifi for the internet, you have to connect it to the DSL box or buy the Samsung wifi USB, no big deal... BEST TV EVER!!!I would recommend this to a friend

To be or not to be...Posted .
Pros: 1- amazing size to performance ratio. This TV is incredibly thin. You will have to see it to believe it. At just over an inch thick (not to mention 55" from corner to corner), this television boasts some of the best stats available, compared to any other brands/models out there. 2-LED back lighting. This feature is what initially caught my eye. When I first saw it I noticed immediately how incredibly deep the blacks were. This boost in depth of the color plate seems to permeate the entire color spectrum, allowing for deeper, more remarkable fullness when viewing all forms content. 3- base statistics. The contrast ratio (although I have read many conflicting, reports, including the manufactures own specification information, which makes it difficult to place an exact quantitative value), 120hz, 1080p, 4 millisecond response time, USB x2 connections, LAN access, ect... They are all there. This television has the capabilities to seamlessly bind your computer or local area network and your home theater into a truly coherent "media center" provided you have the gumption. 4- "Xbrite" like display. I call it this for lack of a better option. The screen itself of this LCD is not matted like many of its predecessors, it is glossy resembling a plasma TV or some of its smaller LCD PC monitor cousins, which allows it a brighter, fuller color clarity. This could be considered as "bothersome" by some because it allows for more apparent reflections of light, casting it back into the viewers eye, but the shear intensity of light emitted by this TV puts this claim to rest. Cons: 1- Menus. After spending multiple hours removing my previous television, measuring and cutting holes in walls, fuddling with cables, and vacuuming dust bunnies and drywall dust, I found my self at the heart of my disappointment with this TV. Navigating the menu system. Don't get me wrong, it is not difficult, but it is entirely cumbersome. To start off a simple task like switching sources is made time consuming and attracts attention because you have to hit a minimum of 3 buttons on the remote to switch to your closest input. This may seem like someone complaining that you have to turn the faucet on to fill a glass of water but just play with it for a bit and you will see what I am talking about. The menus themselves are all animated and take a moment to load, which adds to the frustration when trying to navigate through them, and when you get to the input you want you have to manually exit the menu by pressing the "enter" or "return" button on the remote. This problem could have been easily alleviated by having shortcut buttons to the individual inputs on the remote, like most other manufactures offer. 2-Sound. The sound quality is greatly deteriorated by the fact that the speakers on this model face the opposite direction of the screen. Reverberation off a wall is not an adequate substitution for direct focus. The sound quality is not bad in itself, such as being boxy, tinny or deteriorating with increased volume, it is just not as full as others that I have heard (but this is to be expected being the form factor that it is). It will be necessary to have a surround sound system with this TV, but you probably already have one if you are seriously looking at this model. 3 Limitation of inputs. For some insane reason, Samsung preemptively decided which inputs (HDMI) you could use for which devices and placed limitations on those inputs as they saw fit. This is entirely lame and a let down. Scrolling through the menu selections on various HDMI inputs you will notice that a good majority or your picture modifications are not adjustable according to what input you have currently selected. Despite changing the labels of the inputs and reorganizing HDMI inputs, you are not able to get the full gamut of picture corrections that you payed a lot of money for. This, for me, is the biggest let down of the television. There is nothing worse than seeing a whole slue of options that are supposedly available, but are "grayed out" for some unknown reason. I expect, at this price and ability, to be able to fully customize each input that the televesion has, regardless of what peripheral I am connecting to it. This con might not prevent you from purchasing this TV, but you should be at least aware of it. I have a lot of different devices connected at any given time, ie. blue ray, dvd, vhs, xbox 360, ps3, wii, xbox, n64, psx, snes, nes, pc, camcorder, camera, and some flash based devices, like some of the newer ipods/iphones, and it really bothers me that I cannot change the settings to what ever fits my needs best. 4- Dynamic contrast. This feature seems to be a blessing and a bit of a curse. On one hand you get dark, rich colors, and on the other you get much darker whites when the majority of the screen is dark in hue. You only need to scroll through the menu system of the TV on a static, dark background to see this flaw in action. How dynamic contrast works is that it lowers the backlighting of the television when it senses most of what it is displaying is dark, which makes any contrast in hues, i.e. whites to blacks, much darker than they would normally be. This may not be a deal breaker for some, but depending on what you watch, there is a noticeable difference. I personally like to watch a lot of the space/nasa documentaries, and when they show Hubble images of deep space that are for the most part black, with just a few pin points of light, you notice that that you are loosing quality/brightness of image (as compared to other flat panels without this dynamic contrast perk). 5- Lack of inputs. This downfall is the price you pay for having such a small form factor I guess. 4 HDMI is ok, minus them all being individually limited, but there is only one component in, no composite/S video in at all and the stereo out is a 3.5mm jack so you need an adapter, which is not included. The TV does have optical audio out, so if you have a somewhat capable/newer surround sound system you will be ok, provided you spend the money and buy the expensive cabling to connect it (heaven forbid that your receiver is more than a few feet away or else you are going to feel it in your wallet). Another problem that all of these digital connections bring, that is rarely advertised, is that there is a lot more optimization involved to make them work normally. Say "good by" to just plugging things in and having them work. If you don't have a lot of patients for reading user manuals or trial and error, it might be necessary to pay the extra cost for having some "Geek" come to your house and make everything work properly for you. Another slight annoyance is that this TV does not offer any sort of video out. A slight inconvenience really, but I would like to keep my options open. 6- 120 hz it more like "beauty is in the eye of the beholder". Some people like its effects on movies/games, I personally have turn it off to make the TV look normal to me. You really need to evaluate the feature for your self and make a decision. For me, it looks like it increases the frame rate at times and slows it down in others, which gives the overall viewing quality a "hurky-jerky" feel. Others that have seen the feature on my TV say it gives it more of a 3D quality or that it is more like looking out a window, as apposed to viewing a TV. Its effect is much more noticeable while viewing certain media such as , blue ray, DVD's or video games. I can barely notice it while watching HD/SD content from Comcast (1080i/480p respectively). 7-"Media Center" short comings. What, no youtube? Even my phone has that. I would also like to see WMC connectivity, a flash enabled web browser, and come to think of it, bluetooth, so you can connect a qwarty keyboard to actually take advantage of it all. This would truly bump this TV into an upper eschelon, rivaled by no other device to date. Summary All in all, I think this TV is feature rich with a few let downs that could be corrected with a bit of ingenuity (hopefully made possible in the way of firmware upgrades, putting the LAN feature to good use). I would not personally recommend this TV to any of may friends because I would not want to hear them complain, but I would tell them to come over, play with it and decide for themselves if it is the right choice for them. Knowing what I know now it would be hard to say if I would upgrade again from what I had previously (LG 50px4dr) to this TV, but I can truthfully say that the picture quality on most devices (cable, xbox 360 and others (NOT PLAYSTATION 3, I get a weird snowy pixelated effect on the home screen that drives me crazy and was the reason I bought a new TV in the first place)) it vastly superior to most other televisions that I have seen.No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great tvPosted .
Just bought this tv and have had some time to play around with it. I bought it over the 8000 series as from everything I have read hardly anyone can notice the 240Hz "improvement". I mean 120 Hz is already flashing the frame 5 times a second when watching 24fps film. I would have loved to compared it to a Samsung 950A but I could only find reviews of them separately. I guess I should note the 950A has been discontinued. That used leds over the whole board as opposed to the edge. If you read reviews I think it was more expensive to make and control. You might hear of spotlighting with that system as well. Regardless I wanted to correct or add to one of the worst rating reviews of this tv on here. While it is true the tv will convert 5.1 sound to stereo (2 channel) I have no idea why that person was running the audio out of the tv to the receiver. I have no delay with my setup (hdmi from blueray to the tv) and most home theater systems give you the option to sync up with the TV i.e. delay the sound so it matches the picture. The tv's speaker's sound is ok for normal tv watching but who buys a 3000+ tv and uses the factory speakers. My only complaint I have so far was one I read on CNET. Though I wasn't able to directly compare it compare it to other tv's with the same source some of the blacks are a little too black and seem to wash out some of the detail. I've tweeked the contrast, brightness, and backlight and got it to a level I find more than tolerable. To me this is minor complaint is made up for in the way the colors explode off the screen. I love the bright deep colors and deep blacks. I have noticed maybe one "flashing" people have talked about when watching Transformers. I was looking for it and it is very minor and doesn't happen often, at least to my eyes. The blur reduction and dejudder control are excellent. If the dejudder is on 10 it makes movies almost look like video. I've found I like it set on 1. I have the backlight usually on 5 (out of 10) for normal tv watching. Most movies I set it at 3-4 in a dark room and I turned it down to 1 when watching Lilo and Stich. CNET can give the Kuro or whatever the best rating but come put it next to the 7100 when I have all my windows open and the sun shining in on a nice fall day watching football and then tell me which looks better. Get what looks good to your eye in the environment and setting you will use your tv. Great tv so far. I'm just hoping with the new technology it holds up and remains problem free. I did get the extended warranty but so far it seems most people haven't had any real problems. Great tv.I would recommend this to a friend

amazing TVPosted .
Well, after swooning over this TV for ages, looking up countless reviews, and fighting the urge to spend money on something else i bought it. i asked my local electronics store about the "flashlight effect" they told me they had never heard of such a thing best buy told me they had never seen the tv in the dark so they couldn't comment. I decided to buy from best buy because they had it in store and i could take it home that day. i couldn't be happier thing i like most is the size of the screen, having only owned a 32 inch tv before this was a large step up. then i plugged in my xbox and fired up Modern Warfare 2. the lag caused by the 120Hz made it unplayable but, a quick change to Game Mode and it plays perfectly. (i like how Game Mode turns on whenever i use that hdmi port for my xbox and stays off for everything else) For blu-ray movies the tv looks amazing and football is better than i have EVER seen it. *FLASHLIGHT EFFECT* When you read the negative reveiws all you're going to hear is about how it's so terrible and noticable and you can't fix it and blah blah blah... I've seen what people have returned the TV's for and i was shocked to find out what a MINOR flaw this actually was, first of all, in daylight, you CANNOT SEE IT. if you are watching something in full screen YOU CANNOT SEE IT even in the dark, on a screen with completely black edges, if the picture is designed to go to the corners of the screen i could not see the LED's. now if the room is dim (doesn't require complete darkness) and you are watching a movie that has a letterbox you will see a faint glow coming from the corners, not the top or bottom. in a completely dark room in the same situation you can see a glow from the top and bottom. it's not as bad as people point it out to be but, it is there. honestly i would buy this tv again, i would recommend it to a friend (although none of them can afford it) and i don't see why people returned it to the store. i think the people that complained that it ruins the entire tv and returned it are the same people who think they'll die if they don't get an extra large band-aid and neosporin for a papercut. A+ and no complaints or regretsI would recommend this to a friend

Hands down the best TV to DatePosted .
I have been comparing HDTVs for some time now. I must say LED technology is the way to go. Setup was quick and easy. The picture is nothing short of stunning. Many reviewers comment on the speakers on the TV. In a pinch they will do, but for the caliber of audio you want to compliment the superb video this device provides, use a home theater system. While the TV is a bit higher priced than LCDs, I was more impressed with the color / contrast ratio of the LED technology. Pay attention to the model numbers. There is a newer series which is the 8000. The unit I purchased is the 7100 series. Best Buy also sells the 6000 series. For the best balance in value, the 7100 is the better buy at this time. The 8000 series has a 240 mhz instead of 120 mhz and the 8000 also includes the DONGLE, where the 7100 series does not. The 6000 series is NOT internet ready. (if that is important to you)I would recommend this to a friend

Stylish. But not for the hardcore videophile.Posted .
This tv wouldn't have been my first choice, but the deal was too good to pass up. (Thank you Muldoon store!) My wife loves the touch of color design and the look of the 120Hz "auto motion plus." (Mostly with just animated movies). The tv looks beautiful even when it's off. The things I don't like about it have been mentioned more than once. The backlighting system consists of LED's around the outer edge of the housing that spread light inward behind the screen. Imagine a bunch of flashlights around the edge pointing inward behind the black screen and that's the effect you'll see when the picture goes dark. This is commonly referred to as a "ghosting" effect. I've been able to reduce the effect quite a bit by turning the backlight level wayyy down and tweaking with the display settings, but if the room is dark you will definitely notice it in any dark scene or black screen. The second "dark scene" problem is the tv utilizes "local dimming" technology which automatically turns down portions of the backlight in a dark area of the screen so that area will display a deeper black. Sounds like a good idea but the backlight area is fairly large and never matches up perfectly with the dark area of the screen, which give the effect of the entire screen jumping from lighter to darker very rapidly depending on the picture being displayed. If the room is completely black and you look away from the tv during a scene that has very dark areas, the light being emitted will be noticeably jumpy from the backlight trying to adjust itself. THERE IS NO WAY TO TURN THIS FEATURE OFF!! I'm crossing my fingers for a firmware update that will make that possible, but I'm not holding my breath. At least when the "auto motion plus" starts to look ridiculous I can turn it off. These issues are magnified in a dark room. For general daytime viewing in a room with a lot of natural light, you won't notice it unless you're looking for it. The colors are vibrant and the picture quality itself really is beautiful. (Avatar really shows how good this display can look) As far as the sound goes.... (Gets out my soap box) IF YOU SPEND THIS KIND OF MONEY ON A TV AND YOU ARE USING THE TV SPEAKERS FOR SOUND, YOU ARE MISSING THE POINT! Don't spend your entire entertainment budget just on the tv. Make sure you get a blu-ray player (Can't go wrong with a PS3), sign up for HD with your cable/satellite provider, or if you only watch over the air broadcast tv find out if you can get HD feeds with an antenna, BUY YOURSELF A DECENT AUDIO/VIDEO RECEIVER, preferably one that will decode DTS and Dolby Digital HD signals, and get a decent set of surround speakers. You can get 'all in one" packages that include a blu-ray player built in to a receiver and comes with speakers so all you gotta do is plug the stuff in and QUIT USING A 2,000+ DOLLAR TV FOR SOUND. The tv is so thin anyway that getting any kind of large sound from speakers that would fit in that kind of space would be so expensive that no one would ever buy it. So I gave it 4 stars for sound just for have the option of "mute tv speakers" in the menu. Now stepping off my soap box...I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent 55" TV!Posted .
I looked around, and the best bang for the buck seemed to be this model. I liked the idea that it had direct internet connectivity, as well as all of the features in the 6000 series. Clean picture with none of the artifacting or light/color bleed mentioned about SAMSUNG monitors seen so far. This unit is BRIGHT! I have to tune it down for fear of retinal burn from 12' away! The viewing angle is awesome! Up, down or side to side, the picture remains viewable from almost 180 degrees, with no or little degrigation. Insofar as the much touted INTERNET connectivity.... Meh. I'm not a great proponent of Yahoo!, so the reliance of this unit on them for content (there are others but many are missing) is a minus, thus my rating of 4 for features. As of now you cannot stream HULU, NBC, FOX or ABC with the present incarnation of the software. Sound. Not the greatest in the world, but not bad. I've tried this panel in three configurations. Against the wall, 1' out and 3' out, in a 12' listening space. The rear mounted speakers seem to work the best at the 1' - 18' from the wall. Anything more, and the sound has no separation, anything less and you have to listen at 50% volume or better. As of now, I am happy with this unit. However the very limited internet connectivity makes me less happy about my choice of the 7100 over the 6000 series Samsung. My hope is that the online offerings will continue to grow.I would recommend this to a friend
Q: QuestionHow does LED rate against LCD & Plasma ?
Asked by Anonymous.
- A:Answer I am an electrical engineer. LED technology is the future. The lifetime of a LED is around 100,000 hrs. LEDs are not light bulbs and they do not burn out like LCD backlight bulbs and Plasma tubes. they can however wear over time and become less bright but LEDs are so much less expensive to replace than backlighting for LCD and Plasma. Now if you were to have a power surge and more voltage is applied to an LED than what it is rated for that will damage an LED.

- A:Answer Although choosing which one is better is slightly subjective, technically the higher the Hz, the better the image will be. In this case, 240Hz will be "better" then 120Hz. The main advantage of having 240Hz over 120Hz is that with 240Hz, your content will be upconverted to 120 FPS (frames per second) where as the 120Hz will display your content at 60 FPS. Basically the higher FPS, the smoother your picture will be. -MrSamsung

Instead, they will be coming out with the 8100 series, which should be released and readily available within the next month or so. Also, if you are unable to visit a Best Buy store to gather comparative information, you can also visit www.bestbuy.com which will allow you to easily compare all four models.

Q: QuestionPIP? PBP?I need a new 55" to 58" class TV with PIP, more importantly, "PBP". My 5 yo Samsung DLP (see pic) has the PBP or "splitscreen" and I'd really like to find a set with that EXACT same feature. What TV can I buy that does PBP? Nobody at my local store knows, and the sets they have on display have only one input hooked up so the PIP option is grayed out (inoperable)...

Q: QuestionWhat is the contrast ratio?
Asked by Anonymous.
- A:Answer The Dynamic contrast ratio of the UN55B7100 is 3,000,000:1. Dynamic contrast Ratio is the contrast ratio of the TV set with all of the contrast enhancing features turned on and working properly. Some of these features can include the panel material (Filter Bright and Ultra Clear panels), the active back light unit, and the panel processor (Crystal FHD Engine and the Wide Color Enhancer). Due to not being able to deactivate most of these features, there is no published standardized static or native contrast ratio for Samsung TVs. -MrSamsung

Q: QuestionWhat options can be displayed through ethernet connection?I would like to show a Powerpoint presentation on this display. Can it be hooked up to a computer through our network ethernet cable and get the presentation from a networked computer?
Asked by Sean.
- A:Answer Great question! The Ethernet port on the Samsung TVs is mainly used to allow the TV to access internet content and to allow the TV to update its firmware. Internet content can only be accessed if your TV offers either Infolink or Internet@TV. To display supported content on your TV (movie files, MP3s, and photos only) you will want to have your TV connected to your router that supports DLNA. To use your TV as a monitor, you have three different ways you can perform this: monitor cable, HDMI to HDMI or HDMI to DVI. Although all of these connections are easy to hook up, the PC monitor cable is the most common. To connect it this way, just use a standard PC monitor cable to connect from the monitor out of your PC to the PC input on the TV. Some adjustments to the PC's resolution is required. If your PC offer HDMI out, I would highly suggest using this connection, since it is a basic plug-n-play connection (meaning almost no adjustment is needed on the TV or PC) HDMI to DVI is almost the same as straight HDMI, but in this case, you will want to connect the DVI end of the cable to the PC (if available) and the HDMI into the TV. This is also considered a plug-n-play connection. -MrSamsung
