Review: Aside from the high definition LED screen, 3D capability and next-generation connectivity to both the Internet and to other devices, probably the greatest thing about the Samsung D7000 LED TV is how nice it looks. This unit has apparently the thinnest bezel we have seen in a flat-panel screen, topping out at .2 inches. Being less than half an inch all around, it contributes to the illusion that the already-large screen is bigger than it actually is. The ultra-slim profile at 1.2" without the stand makes mounting this unit onto a wall a nice option and the metallic color gives a sleek and modern design element. It goes without saying, of course, that this HDTV is more than just plain good looks. A maximum resolution of 1920 X 1080 pixels combined with the Auto Motion Plus technology that displays images at 240Hz makes every image, whether static or dynamic, leap off the screen without any noticeable blurring, even with high-speed images like sports or action scenes. The Ultra Clear Panel making up the entirety of the screen also improves the overall image quality by absorbing ambient light instead of reflecting it. Using separate 3D glasses, a 3D-capable Blu-ray player or other 3D media brings you to a whole new dimension of visuals that must be experienced to be fully enjoyed. Connecting devices to this unit is seamless, with 4 HDMI ports, one composite and one component video input and one VGA port for connecting a PC being joined by three USB ports. You can also hook up a speaker system with its Digital Audio interface and get improved audio quality beyond what the onboard speakers can deliver. When it comes to networking, the D7000 boasts both an onboard wireless 802.11N interface as well as an RJ-45 port for Ethernet. The Samsung Apps Suite makes full use of these connections, delivering additional content both free and paid (depending on the publisher) straight from the World Wide Web. The remote control supplied with the TV has an integrated QWERTY keypad for input use. Networking the D7000 to other devices like PCs, Network-attached storage devices or game consoles is also virtually effortless. With all its advantages, there are a few things consumers might want to consider before getting the Samsung D7000 LED TV. First, it tends to be a little oversaturated in terms of colors, especially when freshly unpacked. There is noticeable backlight bleeding when the image being displayed is a visually dark one, but thankfully, this goes away quickly as the unit warms up. The price, too, is a concern, especially if you are working within a budget. Lastly, the QWERTY keypad can be a little difficult to use if you are not used to typing on small devices like mobile phones. Nonetheless, this is an excellent choice for a flat-panel TV and the features it carries will be definitely worth your money.
