Samsung PND7000 review: Samsung PND7000

 

The Samsung PND7000 series has outstanding overall picture quality, with excellent black-level performance and extremely accurate color. The screen can handle bright rooms well and exhibits the nearly perfect screen uniformity of plasma. Key features...

The relatively expensive PND7000 cannot produce full shadow detail or proper 1080p/24 cadence without sacrificing some black-level performance. Smart Hub lacks Amazon Instant, its search is next to useless, and its interface can be cluttered and...

With picture quality on par with the best TVs we've ever tested, the Samsung PND7000 plasma represents an excellent value for videophiles who don't demand to own the top of the line.

Samsung PN51D7000 Review

 

We thoroughly enjoyed reviewing the C7000 plasma series last year and we know that these TVs can deliver a great picture quality. The D7000 series also renders a superb picture, but slightly different than what we saw last year. First, let's start with...

Samsung PN51D7000 TV Review, Price in India

 

Samsung PN51D7000 TV is a lot different from the Panasonic or the LG designs that are available in the same segment.

It is true that every new television which comes up these days is far superior to the older models but there remain a few devices which are way beyond the ordinary. These are the televisions which set a new example to the others and help in changing...

"Excellent picture quality and beautifully designed."

 

I edit photographs on hi-resolution computer monitors so I'm used to great color accuracy. This set is almost up to the color quality (gamut) of my NEC monitor, which is amazing for a tv. I wouldn't hesitate recommending this to anyone looking for a...

Contrast, black levels, great for motion/sports, slim, clean design. Wide viewing angles, sound better than expected for this slim of a tv.

Color fidelity not as accurate as my, apparently, unrealistic expectations. Skin tones from highlights to mid tones can have some banding and a be a bit too saturated in the reds. Doesn't come with 3D glasses (which is typical of most sets).

"Do your homework before spending this much $$ on a TV."

 

Per the suggestion in one of the other reviews, I Googled "samsung cracked plasma". After reading the posts at %s I decided to skip on this TV. I do not know how many of these tv's fail, but given the responses all over the internet it is enough to...

You would think the Samsung name meant quality, but apparently maybe not so much with this TV.

Since I don't have one I have to rely to what I read on the internet. There are good and bad reviews.

"WOW!!! Awesome tv!!!!"

 

This HdTv is an amazing advancement in tech I like to believe. With realistic colors and very dark blacks that just make the hd just pop. Making it seems as it were in 3D. The added extras that you probably won't really use as much( Like Apps and so...

Awesome Hd, very nice 3D and very nice looking frame. :) Perfect for watching movies. And as thin as a LED tv!! WOW!!! Really enjoy all the calibration options it gives you! This tv comes with the works with picture and picture, 3D, Netflixs, blockbuster,

Alot of screen blur when there is fast action and the camera moves fast from left to right. In which you can use the cinema smooth but you sacrifice the blacks. Another is Image Retention. This being my first Plasma im not use to trying to be careful afte
