Samsung PN51D7000

 

Earlier this year we called Samsung's most expensive plasma TV, the PND8000 series, the "Best overall TV of 2011 (so far)." Now that we've tested its less expensive brother, the PND7000 series reviewed here, that designation isn't as certain. Sure the...

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...

"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 http://forums.cnet.com/7723-13973_102-340997-16/internal-crack-on-my-tv-panel/?tag=contentMain;posts I decided to skip on this TV. I do not...

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

"The TV was $1,500 and after 5 months it stopped working"

 

I WILL NEVER PURCHASE ANOTHER SAMSUNG PRODUCT AFTER READING ONLINE HOW TERRIBLE THEY ARE AT CUSTOMER SERVICE AND PRODUCT QUALITY. READ THE ONLINE BLOGS AND YOU WILL NEVER BUY A SAMSUNG TV. I REALIZE IT IS NOT 100% OF THE TV'S SOLD, BUT THE STATISTICS...

Good picture when it worked.

The TV was $1,500 and after 5 months it stopped working. While watching the TV is just cut off. I found a crack in the screen behind the glass on the plasma screen. I called Samsung and they came and looked it only to state there was no physical damage

It usually takes me months before I decide to buy any new piece of electronics. However, this TV was a spontaneous buy relative to what I go through selecting anything, partly because of the deal that Amazon was having and partly because of the user...

great picture and colors ; great features ; a lot of controls and settings for picture quality ; out of the box calibrations are pretty good ; great with console and video gaming

not enough legacy connectors ; would be nice if it had an HDMI connector on the front

Holy Freaking Crap This TV Is AWESOME!!!

 

I received the D7000 a week ago and thus far I have been blown away. Aesthetic Appeal: I love the look of the TV. It is razor thin compared to plasma models in the past and the small, charcoal colored bezel gives it a classy look. I previously had a...

Picture Quality: Superb. Awesome. Incredible ; Sound quality is fine ; DirectTV HD is also flawless ; Blacks do look deeper and richer ; 2D-to-3D feature is pretty cool ; There are 4 HDMI inputs in the rear of the TV

Slightly sluggish interface in the Ehub
