“3d Experience with Avatar the game. ???” 2010-05-31
By Brian A. Morgan (Atlanta, GA United States)
My Samsung UN55C7000 arrived in great condition despite it being listed as “used with small cosmetic damage.” I couldn’t find any scuff, crack or anything. After finding out that Avatar for PS3 was already made with optional stereoscopic 3d, I had to get my hands on a 3d tv to try this feature out. I also purchased a hdmi 1.4 cable and the rechargable samsung glasses(extremely light and comfortable, 30 hour battery life). I booted up my ps3 and reconfigured my display settings (for some reason, i could only output in 720p???) and started up the game and went into the menu display settings changing it to the side-by-side (sensio) 3d display and did the same with the tv and alas, the menu was displayed in 3d. You are able to configure how much “pop” effect you want out of your 3d from the game menu and the tv menu. I’ve played about 10 hours of the game and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. You can immediately see the depth of the game from the jump, but it’s not until you get further into the game where you are standing on what seems like 300 ft ledges to realize the effect that depth perception can have. Eyestrain wasn’t that big of a problem for me(wore glasses for 12 years and contacts for the last 12). Initially, your eyes may take 5-10 minutes adjusting to what your seeing, but the more time that went by, the more comfortable my eyes seemed to become. Overally, from a gaming standpoint, I can’t wait for the 3d games coming in the future.
As far as the issues I read about in other reviews, this “escaping light” issue was non existent for me when watching movies on my ps3. I still can’t figure out what that reviewer is seeing. The picture is rich and the blacks are amazing(almost as if the tv was off). I enjoyed the remote as well. While the buttons don’t “pop” out, they are optionally backlit and do have brail-like surfaces that while allow you to familiarize yourself with them in time. I wish I could give this tv a 4.8(still confused about the 720 display on my ps3, but does it really make a difference??? probably not) so I’ll just settle for a 5.
“Best Purchase I Ever made” 2010-05-29
By Manampathy Giridharan (Cincinnati, OH)
I am very happy with this TV. Before buying this, I was concerned about the negative comments regarding edge light leak. After using this TV for more than 3 weeks under different lighting conditions, I can say that I have not noticed it and it was completely overblown. I am very happy with both the picture and sound quality. I have not used the 3-D features yet, but I consider that as a bonus and I will use it when it becomes affordable and the technology matures. The internet TV is convenient for watching movies. I updated the firmware soon after I connected the TV and that process was pretty straightforward. The TV is very light and the connections are easy to make. I had little trouble mounting the TV on the stand, but figured that doing it in a horizontal position was a lot easier. Overall, this is a great TV and I would strongly recommend it.
“Samsung UN55C7000 Review from LCD TV Buying Guide” 2010-05-26
By LCDTVBuyingGuide (Atlanta, GA)
Aesthetics – 1.2″ depth with 1″ bezel. Great looking TV.
New Swivel quadrapod stand
Good deep black levels – Avg. to good contrast.
Excellent color saturation
Optional 240/120Hz feature for sports programming
Great connectivity options for such a thin TV
3-D Enabled for future programming
Proprietary Wifi Internet TV Network
240Hz feature with Film based content (turn off feature)
Difficult ISF calibration
At times over saturation of colors
Slightly Weak Volume/Audio output
Blue tone inconsistency across gray scales
HD 1080p Picture Quality: There is nothing subdued about this LED TV, from its super thin good looks to its super saturated colors. Blacks are rich and deep and colors vibrant if not over powering at times. Some dark shadow detail is lost and and subtle color notes forgotten. But it’s a colorful picture many will relish. Read our extended picture notes below.
Black Level/Contrast: With color information both light and dark appearing so deeply saturated, contrast effect is excellent. Blacks appear inky and sometimes lose dark shadow detail. White light sometimes is distractingly too bright. Contrast appears more intense on the screen than the average of 191:1 post calibration ANSI checkerboard pattern contrast that we measured – probably due to the effects of the LED backlighting and saturated colors.
Dark Shadow Detail: As a result of the super saturated blacks, shadow detail can get lost in some scenes. In others, it was fine.
Color Rendition/Color Accuracy: Color saturation is a strength of these new LED backlit Samsung LCDs. Colors are super vibrant even if on the unrealistic side at times. It’s what our society (maybe not so much purists) likes these days. On rare occasions there is some over saturation within blacks.
Motion Lag: The UN55C7000 did a good job eliminating motion lag and judder with the 240Hz feature turned on. However, turning the Automotion Plus feature off does introduce some side to side judder (jerkiness). Neverthless, we recommend this action for especially film based DVDs and movies on broadcast TV.
480i DVD and Broadcast Viewing: For any film or broadcast TV non-sports based material start by turning off the 120Hz/240Hz rate feature as follows: Click Menu/picture/Scroll down to Picture Options/Press enter/Scroll down to AutoMotionPlus 240Hz/Press Enter/Scroll or press to Off position. It is important to turn this feature off (see more on this feature under features section below).
Calibration Settings: Calibrating white balance was somewhat difficult on this TV. Blue tones continue to lack consistency in these edge lit Samsung LEDs, To dial in close to D6500 follow the following picture settings: Click here for extended notes and technical information regarding calibration.
Picture Mode: Movie
Color Temp: Warm 2
Black Tone: Off
Dynamic Contrast: Off
Flesh Tone: Off
Edge Enhancement: Off
Digital NR: Auto
HDMI Black Level: Low
Film Mode: Auto 1
Color Filter: Off
3-D Content Viewing Note: At CES 2010 we had our first chance to see this TV in action with 3-D content from DirecTV. There was notable eye strain as scenes changed. I found myself blinking a lot and started to get a headache fairly rapidly as my eyes tried to focus and refocus. It was not a smooth viewing experience. The upside to this is that I believe the tired eye experience was primarily due to the content from DirecTV and not the fault of the TV. I believe the content was rapidly patched together for the show and not likely typical of future 3-D content.
Aesthetic Considerations: The 55C7000 comes with a 15 to 20 degree swivel quadrapod (our word) table top stand. The stand is heavy, sturdy and gives and expensive quality with its gloss chrome metallic finish. The new 4 legged stand is a gutsy move and I like it. There are accompanying screws to further secure the stand to the TV. The super thin 1.2″ screen depth is accompanied by an improved 1″ bezel frame surrounding the screen. This is an improvement of an inch over last years model. The bezel frame itself comes in a new Touch of Color called Mystic Earth but which is a charcoal gray color. The frame really appears gloss black/charcoal gray.
Remote Control/Menu Funtionality: The backlit push button remote control for the 55C7000 is simple, basic and straightforward without the flash of the highest end Samsung models. This standard remote control contains a discrete button called P. Size for changing the video aspect ratio. The overlaid Menu system is very attractively laid out and thorough, but slow and cumbersome to navigate.
Audio Output: Sound volume levels seem weak from the 15W X 15W built in speakers. We can understand the challenges for speaker placement in a 1.2″ deep TV. For a majority of programming changing the mode to movie, and utilizing the Clear Voice feature will help a lot to improve voice tone in DVD and broadcast material. SRS TruSurround is a useful feature for HD content but it doesnt help voice tone. Overall, audio delivery from the UN55C7000 was slightly better than last years model, which was not impressive.
Features: The Samsung UN55C7000 is loaded with extra features, some surprising, others more useful. AutoMotionPlus “240Hz” Refresh Rate: This is a true 240Hz with greatly reduces motion lag and judder in sports programming. But that’s the only format for which we recommend it. Media Play: Use this feature connected through USB to keep picture and video files. Clear Voice, SRS and Movie sound options are listed above under Audio Output. We mention the new 3-D ready feature under the PQ section above. Click here for an overview of all the new features on this TV.
Internet Connectivity: The 55C7000 series expands the list of potential Internet partners with Blockbuster, USA Today, Netflix, VUDU on Demand, as well as the previously offered Yahoo news, Flikr, witter, Yahoo Finance, Yahoo Video. These options are nice improvements from last years package and make it more viable.. Response time is still a little slow when clicking on the various options. This feature is wireless with an optional accesssory.

“What’s not to like?” 2010-05-22
By J. Bilik
Picture quality is excellent, the 3D technology has a way to go! I like the fact that you have so many inputs avaliable. It’s a no brainer to set up the TV as an entertainment piece as well as a computer monitor, using wireless keyboard or mouse, it works well with control4′s new home automation system. I haven’t found any drawback to this set!
“I am no expert but” 2010-05-19
By GRP (Hinesburg,Vt USA)
This the best tv I have owned in every way but the sound system. At times I have had the sound at full volume to hear programs and movies when they are talking at a normal level. I ordered a home theater sound system(onkyo HT S5300 7.1) and am waiting for its arrival. The 3D is very good and the glasses,eventually,are not even that noticeable on your face as I have got up and walked away and did not immediately notice I had them on. I also wear regular glasses and they fit right over them with no problem. I have not noticed any edge lighting as others have seen. I highly recommend this item.
