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...

There is not a lot to not like about the Samsung. Provided you don't mind waiting for the lagging menu system controls, it's an excellent display with a great black level and absolutely stunning look. Color is excellent, though off-angle viewing...

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 isnt cinephile quality, but fine for day-to-day use. The addition of limited Internet access,...

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...

Think of Samsung's 46-inch 7000 as an aspiring model: impossibly thin, well put together, and connected to the Net 24/7. (It has a name you can't pronounce, too.) To attain the set's waifish profile, Samsung replaced the standard fluorescent...

LED seems to be the next big flavor of the flat panel world, and Samsung is spearheading the charge. The new 7000 series LED TV is the flagship of the LED range in the popular 40-inch size. A notch above is the 8000 series 55-inch LED TV (which...

Just when you thought youve seen the best from Samsung they go ahead and up the ante again. Today we have their monster 46-inch Series 7 LED TV that offers all the features of the Series 6, plus a couple more like internet access, two USB ports...

PerformanceWe started off with grayscale patterns, minute bars increasing in light spanning across the screen. At high backlights, whites definitely look quite bright, but blacks are clearly faded, and will not appeal to a videophile. Thus at level 5...

Okay, so this review has been pretty much equal parts praise and equal parts criticism that you're probably asking yourself, "should I buy the UN55B7000 or not?" Getting past all its gimmicks and features, the UN55B7000, on its picture quality and...

The Samsungs UE-40B7000 may not ultimately establish itself as a benchmark TV along the lines of Pioneers Kuro range; but it will certainly be remembered as the first TV to make available the benefits of LED performance to the vast majority of...

Youve heard the old saying—you cant be too rich or too thin. I wont touch the "too rich" part here, but people can certainly be too thin to maintain good health. On the other hand, flat panels have no such restriction, getting...

Summing up all the qualities of the 55-" Samsung UN55B7000 LED TV is difficult because it is a high-valued model that is sold for such an unusually reasonable price, when taking the technology into perspective. LED TVs use less power and generate more...
