Samsung UN40B7000

 

Measuring just 1.2 inches thick, the 40-inch Samsung UN40B7000 LCD HDTV packs serious style along with performance and features.

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.

Samsung UNB7000 review: Samsung UNB7000

 

Samsung UNB7000

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, we set it up and quickly found ourselves struck speechless.

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

 

The Samsung UE40B7000 is virtually identical in spec to the UE40B7020 we've previously tested, but it's exclusive to Dixons, Currys and PC World

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

Sound is average

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

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

Superb performance, top notch features and excellent value put this LED LCD right at the top of the pile

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.

Samsung UE40B7000 40in LCD TV

 

With its sharp, high-contrast picture and cool-looking super-slim frame, it's certainly distinctive and well worth checking out.

This TV has a lot going for it, from great looks before you even plug it in through to sharp, pleasing HD images and decent Freeview fidelity. The audio isn't cinephile quality, but fine for day-to-day use. The addition of limited Internet access,...
