The Samsung UN40C7000 is one of the smallest LED LCD television by Samsung that also boasts HDTV and 3D capabilities. It’s size and dimensions mean that it is perfect for the smaller rooms of the house or a smaller residence.
The main selling point of this TV is the sharp colours and brilliant contrast created by the LCD LED screen. Its blacks are rich and the colours are vibrant. The LED edge-lit screen has many advantages over its predecessors. For starters its power consumption is very low. The whole Samsung range of these LED TV’s far exceed Energy Star ratings.
The main problem with other flat screen televisions is the juddering effect that appears on some high action sequences. The Samsung UN40C7000 attempts to combat this with some new technology. For starters, there is a 240Hz refresh rate. This means that the picture is smooth enough even for use with 3D, which uses shutter technology. The Samsung UN40C7000 also automatically chooses the correct resolution when viewing blu-ray DVD, as this can differ slightly depending in the movie.
The Samsung UN40C7000 is enhanced by a built in surround sound system. It has speakers built into the bezel frame. Two of the speakers are at the base of the frame to enhance bass sounds. This is supported by 10 watts of power and there are 2 audio channel settings too.
Connects to the internet via wires or wireless
The new generation of flatscreen TV’s are now being built with internet capabilities. The Samsung UN40C7000 is no exception. There is a well placed ethernet port and wireless capabilities. This means that the Samsung UN40C7000 can directly compete with other internet TV’s.
Other internet facilities are also available. The Samsung UN40C7000 comes with internet@TV facilities and is Skype enabled. The Samsung Apps platform is also available which means that up to date news and weather from the internet is available at the click of a button. The wireless capabilities also mean that video and music streaming are available on your TV.
The 3D TV capabilities are there but it is currently difficult to experience the full value as TV and movie makers are not producing much 3D television. This will change, but until then the Samsung UN40C7000 can convert normal 2D TV into 3D. Although not true 3D, this adds a bit of interest for those who like to get the most from their gadgets.
Wall mount the UN40C7000 for that picture frame look
The Samsung UN40C7000 can be wall mounted or you can use the swivel stand that is included in the package. Either way you can situate your TV so that you get the best view of the screen and all it has to offer. The dimensions of the LED TV ensure that whatever you chose, you can fit it where you had your old TV or safely hang it from the wall.
In conclusion the Samsung UN40C7000 is a perfect all rounder. The HDTV capabilities give you all the new technology available with only a small energy consumption. It provides great home entertainment but also fits perfectly into everyday life. For its size the quality of the picture and sound are very good and it is definitely one of the best currently available on the market.
