Samsung UA40B7000 7 series LCD TV

 

This one is Samsung's highest end TV we've reviewed. It's from their 7 series, released recently in the market. The title says LCD TV even though Samsung calls it LED TV. Actually it's an LED edge lit LCD TV, as some readers got confused the last time...

Overall I would say the blacks are not so deep, the LCD curse as we call it. The TV's definitely bright, better than regular CCFL LCD TVs. The very strong points are accuracy in colors, and a smooth sense of clarity one gets, especially in native 1080p...

Samsung UN40B7000

 

Until 3D HDTVs hit the mainstream, thin is in, and Samsung's UN40B7000 is among the slimmest you'll find. At just 1.2 inches thick (without stand), this sexy sidelit LED-based LCD HDTV is designed to impressbut it comes at a steep price. The 40-inch...

Only 1.2 inches thick. Good color and contrast ratio performance. Strong feature set. Energy efficient. HDMI-CEC support. Internet@TV support with Web widgets and access to services like Amazon Video On Demand

Expensive. Auto-dimming cannot be disabled. Integrated speakers are weak

While Samsung had to make some compromises to get the 40-inch UN40B7000 LED-based LCD HDTV to measure a mere 1.2 inches thick, the result is just as sexy and powerful as it is expensive.

Samsung UN40B7000

 

Produces relatively deep black levels; accurate color; very good dejudder processing; sleek styling with 1.2-inch thick panel; extensive feature set with Yahoo widgets, network streaming, and a lot of built-in content; extremely energy-efficient.

Expensive; less-uniform screen than other LCDs; poor off-angle viewing; backlight fluctuates with program brightness; dark areas tinged bluer; shiny screen can cause reflections in bright rooms; red frame isn't for everyone.

Although its picture quality can't quite live up to the high price, the Samsung UNB7000 series is a technological and design tour de force.

Samsung UN40B7000 LED Backlit Television Review

 

I find it maddeningly easy to be critical of new products. However, when Samsung sent us their 1.2"-thin LED backlit UN40B7000 HDTV, we set it up and quickly found ourselves struck speechless. Aside from an unresponsive remote control, off-axis black...

Only 1.2" thick ; Integrates very well with the Samsung ; Incredible Black levels ; Rich, accurate colors ; Yahoo! Widgets ; Cool built-in applications

Pricey ; Poor off-axis viewing ; Still waiting on Netflix Widget ; Agonizingly slow response to remote commands

Samsung UN40B7000 Review – 40-inch LED HDTV

 

If price is not a deciding factor, then this HDTV is the one for you. On the higher side of the price range, the Samsung UN40B7000 has many innovative features which stand up to the exaggerated prices. Due to the LED lighting, the bezel is very thin at...

On the whole, the Samsung UN40B7000 seems to be a good product. Both the slim looks and the good performance will force you to buy the product.

Samsung UE40B7000 review

 

This LED-backlit screen takes slim TV design to new extremes. But, there's more to this model than just looks

Superb contrast ; Sharp HD images ; Glorious slim styling ; Multimedia and web widget extras

Poor audio performance ; No wi-fi adapter included

Samsung UE40B7000WW review

 

The Samsung UE40B7000WW is truly wonderful. While we still think plasma TVs have the edge, the UE40B7000WW shows that Samsung is turning sets with LED edge lights into real competitors. We're big fans of the TV's Yahoo Widgets and media-playback...

Excellent picture quality ; Stunning design ; Good online functionality ; Capable of network media playback ; Impressive sound

Some patchiness when handling very dark scenes

We were worried that the lack of regional dimming would be a problem with this TV. As it turned out, we really didn't notice its absence. We were a little disappointed to see some light-bleeding in the corners of the screen, but, for the most part, it...

If you want a Samsung TV then take your pick - both this and the UE40B7020 excel

Exhaustive spec ; pictures are strong across the board ; ultra-slim and stylish design

Sound is average

European Green TV 2009-2010 -> Samsung UE40B7000

 

Large, flat screen TVs are among the most power hungry and intensively used of domestic appliances. Samsung's UE40B7000 (black version UE40B7020) is leading the charge for fully-featured TVs that deliver stunning HD pictures while respecting the...

Samsung UE40B7000 40-inch 1080p LED Backlight TV

 

Despite being thinner and greener, the Samsung UE40B7000 has a high specification, including a 3 million to 1 contrast ratio, a 100hz refresh rate to expunge ghosting or blurring in fast moving images and an Ethernet connection to allow video streaming...

Although there is no actual Scart Socket on the set itself it does come with a cable which contains a Scart Socket which plugs in to the set an allows you to connect one scart item – your Sky box for example.
