Samsung's step-down D7000 series doesn't cut on spec at all, as John Archer finds out when he powers up the 40in model

Gorgeous, space-saving design; good 3D and excellent 2D picture quality

Slight crosstalk noise with bright 3D footage

Accompanying the D7000’s excellent pictures is some surprisingly decent audio. Samsung’s slim, edge LED TVs have traditionally struggled to sound credible, but the set’s audio is clean, reasonably dynamic and quite punchy, though more bass extension...

Samsung UE40D7000 review


Like its UE55D8000 sibling reviewed previously, the UE40D7000 is a mighty stylish TV, with a bezel that's so slender (barely a centimetre) that it's barely there at all. Moreover, the slimness is emphasised by the fact that most of the frame is...

Samsung UE40D7000


Minimal depth, minimal bezel, great spec, richly detailed, stable and absorbing images

Hit-and-miss backlighting

Front-running performance in every regard bar one important one

Samsung UE40D7000


Samsung's big-screen 2011 3D TVs have impressed so far, but can this smaller offering keep up the good work?

Sensational design ; Superb 2D and 3D picture quality ; Revolutionary multimedia functionality

Marginal backlight inconsistency ; Minor crosstalk during very bright 3D scenes ; Limited viewing angle

While Panasonic’s L32DT30 has proved that LCD can do active 3D without suffering as much crosstalk as you get with the 40D7000, overall Samsung's latest 40 incher is still a superb LCD all-rounder that also just so happens to have excellent multimedia...

Samsung UE40D7000


Outstanding picture and design. 4 HDMI sockets. Smart Hub and apps. Easy to set up (wi fi, menus etc). 3D from sky 3D or 3D blu ray is excellent. Comfortable 3D glasses supplied with television and easy to set up and pair with TV. The TV is very thin...

Poor sound from the actual built in speakers (although I don't use the speakers as it is plumbed into a blu ray home cinema system) . Remote needs a qwerty keypad (only available in the USA). Backlight bleed (although this is very slight) from bottom...
