Samsung Series 7 UE55B7020 55in LED LCD TV

 

Armed with side-mounted LED backlighting, how does this big LCD TV fare on top of John's test bench?

Looking at some of these in more detail, the USBs cater for direct playback of MP3 and JPEG files from USB storage devices, as well as enabling a wireless connection with your router if you cough up £40 or so for the necessary optional USB dongle. As...

Samsung B7020WW (UE55B7020WW) review

 

The Samsung UE55B7020WW looks like it's been sent back from five years in the future, managing to fit an extraordinary amount of features into its incredibly svelte body. Backlight-inconsistency issues mar its otherwise excellent pictures, though

Jaw-dropping design ; Pictures sometimes look dazzlingly good ; Loads of connections and features ; Not stupidly expensive

Pools of light in the screen's corners are seriously distracting during dark scenes ; Motion-handling isn't perfect

Conclusion The Samsung UE55B7020WW is one of the most frustrating TVs we've ever seen. It looks beautiful and is capable of delivering some heroic pictures. Unfortunately, its backlight flaw also makes it almost unwatchable at times. It's lucky for...

Samsung Series 7 UE40B7020 40in LED LCD TV

 

The Samsung UE40B7020 LED LCD TV looks sensational and can produce superb pictures too.

Super-slim panel ; Superb black levels ; Intense, accurate colours ; Weak sound

Motion blur with SD content

I predicted a couple of years ago that one day LED would rule the TV world, and the UE40B7020 does nothing whatsoever to shake that conviction.

For a set that all but disappears if you look at it side, on, this Sammy packs some serious tech. But how phat is its performance?

It might seem pricey, but in this instance there's no doubt that you get what you pay for

At first sight it may seem pricey, but in this instance there's no doubt you get what you pay for

Super-slim good looks; fine specification; effective LED backlighting; composed, absorbing pictures from all sources

Unpleasant remote; wireless dongle costs extra; ropey broadcasts are given short shrift

Samsung UE-40B7020

 

The 40B7020 is also a cut above with its feature count. For instance, there's the edge LED lighting that helps it look so slim. Plus it's got two USB inputs rather than the usual one, which you can use either to play MP3 and JPEG audio files stored on...

Iconic looks, excellent picture quality, huge feature count, loads of connections, good value

Slightly limited viewing angle, some picture settings don't work very well, barely average audio

Samsung UE40B7020

 

Even though Samsung has produced and sold LED-backlit flat screen HDTVs for some time now, 2009 marks the year when the world's largest electronics manufacturer starts marketing them under a new “LED TV” moniker to distinguish them from conventional...

Accurate colour chromaticities and decoding ; Capable of 0.01 cd/m2 blacks (though with auto-dimming; see Cons) ; Impressive SD video processing ; Custom” [100Hz Motion Plus] setting allows for blur reduction independent from dejudder processing ;...

Auto-dimming/ black level fluctuation at low Average Picture Level (APL), unless [Game Mode] engaged and [Dynamic Contrast] set to “Off ; Mild clouding and backlight bleeding ; Input lag may affect sensitive gamers

The UE40B7000 is the fruit of Samsung's commendable maiden effort at implementing edge-lit LED backlighting technology on a flat screen HDTV. Not surprisingly, this first-generation product is not problem-free. For starters, the edge LED system can...

Samsung UE40B7020 LED TV Review

 

The Samsung UE40B7020 LED TV is a 40 inch model from the Samsung Series 7 LED TV range. At just 3 cm deep these TVs are stunningly slim, and being so thin they can also be wall mounted and be no deeper than say a mirror or picture. They...

Almost perfect...

 

I've been waiting to get this TV for a while now and, after looking into it, I was chuffed when I finally did. Having had various Samsung TVs in the past, I wasn't excepting to be disappointed... and I wasn't.
