LED Back-lit Technology TV
How does Samsung make it so slim?
How does Samsung make it so slim?
There can be only one thinnest, clearest, most elegant television. Easily, it's Samsung's LED. Breathtakingly thin, it's designed as one seamless piece of flawless crystal. On its LED screen, vivid details are captured in every frame. Picture edge-blur removed and full, robust colour restored to each pixel. Watch television programs, web content or your own,knowing you're also being kind to the environment. It's a remarkable feat of design, on or off.

LED Technology
What is LED?
Standard LCD TVs use a simple constant fluorescent lamp backlight to illuminate the image on the screen. But this type of lamp is too bright to display decent black images, so blacks can look grey and washed out. Fluorescent light also includes unwanted colours such as orange, yellow and cyan which are difficult to filter without reducing screen brightness.

How does Samsung make it so slim?
Samsung takes slimness a step further by arranging the LEDs around the outside of the screen and pointing them inwards. This optimised structure makes the Samsung LED TV incredibly slim. Some models are a mere 29mm!

Light Emitting Diode (LED) is a new technology that converts electric energy directly into light, producing a dramatic improvement in contrast and colour rendering. LED has a narrower spectrum of light with fewer unwanted colours.

Why is the Samsung picture so much better?
Samsung LED replaces ordinary fluorescent backlights with multiple LEDs that brighten, dim or turn off altogether depending on the picture on the screen giving you deep authentic blacks and a greater subtlety of colour gradiation in between.

1080p Full HD
1080p Full HD
1080p Full HD
Discover the Full HD difference. 1080p Full HD refers to images that are displayed at 1920 x 1080 resolution. With 1.5 times the scanning lines of conventional HD TV, Full HD offers more pixels, more details and superior picture clarity.

Ultra Slim
By using smaller lamps and a thinner diffuser sheet, Samsung LED TVs are 70% slimmer than equivalent fluorescent backlit televisions. This optimised structure makes the Samsung LED incredibly slim - just 29.9mm!

Mega Dynamic Contrast Ratio
LED backlight technology allows for greater contrast levels, so bright images become brighter and dark images become darker.

Motion Plus
Conventional TVs display visuals at a 50Hz frame rate which means it shows 50 still images per second. Samsung Motion Plus™ runs at 100Hz or 200Hz (dependent on model), twice the rate or more of ordinary televisions, so even the fastest action scenes are precise, clear and blur-free.

Motion Plus™ works by intelligently estimating the on-screen action. Then it creates and inserts extra frames between frames. The result is a seamless, blur-free viewing experience that's perfect for sports and other fast-motion including scrolling text.

Ultra Clear Panel®
Conventional TVs display visuals at a 50Hz frame rate which means it shows 50 still images per second. Samsung Motion Plus™ runs at 100Hz or 200Hz (dependent on model), twice the rate or more of ordinary televisions, so even the fastest action scenes are precise, clear and blur-free.

Samsung's patented Ultra Clear Panel® technology gives you clear, crisp images without glare. A new anti-reflective coating delivers dramatically darker blacks, vibrant depth of colour and reduced reflection.

DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) turns the TV into a digital media player so you can watch video and view pictures saved on your PC. A wired or wireless router pairs up the TV and DLNA certified equipment like laptops, PCs and even Samsung's Omnia mobile phone, so content can be streamed from one to the other. DLNA removes the need to copy media onto a USB storage device and then connect the USB to the TV.

Connect your digital world. HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) inputs transmit pure, uncompressed streams of digital data at the highest resolution. With 4 HDMI inputs (3 rear, 1 side), your TV is equipped with everything it needs to become your personal multimedia hub, allowing you to quickly connect external devices to the TV for an unrivalled audio visual experience.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A superb TV - Samsung 7-series LED 1 Oct 2009
    Best looking TV around, best panel technology. The platinum black TV is a stunner - slim TV is neat, not the most important feature in my book, but when looking at this TV edge on while an image is being displayed, its stands out as an amazing piece of consumer design.
    The other reviews here say this TV is the best. Those reviews are right, the 7-series LED panel is the best.

    For blu-ray, I have it twinned with the BD-P4600 player, these two together are stunning.
    I put 'The Golden Compass' blu-ray in and the TV image knocked me for six - way better than I imagined. I've played many more movies since, but this one was gob-smackingly good.
    I cant complain about the sound as it is effectively a flat speaker design. Plug the A/V out to a decent speaker and you can address the sound issues that are noted in other reviews.

    USB connectivity is very, very good, 320GB USB HD worked first time. No issue with any USB drive that I have used. Playing photos, movies and music is great, and photos are fab on this TV.
    Music playback is not like an MP3 player, if it created music libraries based on artist, album etc it would be better as it only provides for folder based browsing of music at present. Playback of DivX 3.1 encoded AVI is spot on.
    YouTube playback over Internet is great, keyword search, find a video, play - simple. Good playback even on a 1MB Internet link.
    The other Internet (Internet@TV) items are less useful, but I'd hope that Samsung will improve that aspect with more time.
    Firmware update is a doddle - TV will auto-update 45 mins after TV goes to standby mode plus some other options.
    The mini-remote control is a lovely item VOL+- and CH+- on a tiny remote - class design too.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 30 April 2009
    If I manage to make one thing clear in this review, it's that this TV is brilliant. The 1080p is so clear that it's practically like looking through an empty frame.

    The picture quality is superlative; the blacks are deeper than ever and the colours are as vibrant as a bolt of lightning. Compared to previous LCD TV's I have owned in the past, the samsung led TV's are a cut above the rest. I'm not sure on the Sony 200Hz motionflow against this TV but the picture looks very smooth indeed. When I say flat screen, I really mean flat! There is literally no room wasted when hooking the thing to the wall and blends into its surroundings seamlessly.

    Thoroughly recommended for anyone who seeks exceptional quality from their television!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Samsung LED TV 9 Jun 2009
    This tv is the slimmest tv I have ever seen, it weighs lesss than half the weight of my last tv too but this isn't hard to believe given its size. The picture quality is one of the best i've seen, colours are vivid and areas that should be black are actually black (My last tv had a problem handling dark scenes). The connections are more than enough although I have alreay filled the 4 HDMI ports, one thing I found particularly usefull, was the inclusion of an Optical output. With a descent surround sound system you can have almost 5.1 sound whatever you're watching, it is capable of outputting 5.1 but no aired tv stations support it yet. The menus are easy to navigate through and this gives you a lot of tweaking to fine tune to your desired settings. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a new tv, the mix of stunning picture quality and beautiful design make it the perfect piece to have at the centre of any home theatre system.

    One final note,
    I had one problem with the tv early on, it would randomly turn off into standby and then come back on instantly for no apparent reason. This happend quite often and was really annoying especially during the Champions League final. I sorted the problem out with little hassle by downloading the firmware update form Samsung's website. I have had no problems with it since.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Superb picture on the Samsung LED TV 5 Sep 2009
    This TV has superb picture quality and some novel features.
    The picture quality in HD is absolutly Stunning.
    The internet features are novel, but are very slow and quite limited in use.
    If you are like me, you will have a play for an hour or two and than realise that the apps are far too slow and fiddly to be of any practical use.
    I love this TV but there is one MAJOR disappointment... the Sound quality from the on board speakers is appauling.
    My radio alarm clock has a better tone than this tv. However, I was aware of this issue and decided I could overcome this simply by hooking up my surround sound system (it's about time I got some use out of it) GREAT I thought... BUT.. Oh no, The sound comes out the sound system a fraction of a second before the persons lips on the tv have (the technical term for this is Lip sync delay). This is very annoying. It happens because the tv takes longer to process the picture than the sound,so therefore the picture and sound are not syncronised. I would have thought a tv in this price range (£1000+) would have had a syncronised audio output.
    This has really annoyed me.
    You can correct this problem by buying an additional piece of kit that will delay the sound to your sound system and allow you to syncronise sound/picture, but you will pay anthing from £80.00 unless of course, your AV receiver has this feature built in. If you are not bothered about the sound issue I can certainly recommend this tv for a truly amazing Picture. Good Hunting!
