Samsung has a complete range of TVs and this Samsung UN55D7900 LED TV review will demonstrate why this is one of the best TVs of 2011.
The Samsung 7900 has an almost identical specification to the more expensive Samsung 8000 with two very minor differences, the Samsung UN55D7900 has a slightly bigger TV stand and it ships with one pair of 3D glasses not two. Other than this the technical specs are identical, so if you are considering buying the Samsung 8000 then you could save yourself a few hundred dollars by opting for the Samsung 7900 instead.
The first thing that strikes you about the Samsung UN55D7900 is it’s stunning design, it has a 55 inch LED TV display which is only 1.2 inches thick and it has virtually no visible bezel. When you look at the TV all that you see is the gigantic LED display with no surrounding border. Add to this its super-intense 25,000,000:1 contrast ratio this really adds to the overall cinematic experience.
As you would expect from a top of the range model, the Samsung UN55D7900 comes packed with the latest and best picture enhancing technology. It has an edge-lit 55 inch LED TV panel, with 240Hz Auto Motion Plus Technology and micro dimming. What this means in practical terms is that it produces motion and lighting effects that are unrivalled. The 240 Hz refresh rate coupled with a 960 Clear Motion Rate produced by the internal image processor (the highest rating of all Samsung LED TVs), means that motion will seem sharper and more responsive than anything you will have experienced before. The micro dimming feature ensures that none of the lighting effects and fine details is lost on screen.
The Samsungs Smart TV platform which comes built in to the Samsung UN55D7900 is also one of the slickest internet TV platforms on the market. The Samsung 7900 comes with a good range of standard apps such as Netflix Movies, Pandora music, Skype and social media Apps plus there is an endless range of additional Samsung Apps available for download on top of this as well as an integrated web browser for basic surfing. Using the built in Wi-Fi connectivity and QWERTY remote controller you have a complete home entertainment system in a single device.
Reasons to buy the Samsung 7900 don’t stop here. Let’s not forget that this is also one of the best 3D TVs models available. It uses active Full HD 3D TV technology to produce stunning 3D cinema, it only comes with one pair of 3D glasses as standard but there are some great bundle deals available which include more pairs of 3D specs.
In summary the Samsung UN55D7900 is simply one of the best 55 inch TVs that money can buy. Below is a summary of the features and specification to complete this Samsung UN55D7900 3D LED TV review.
240 Hz Auto Motion Plus
With Auto Motion Plus 240Hz the Samsung UN55D7900 analyzes and enhances the picture frame by frame to produce super sharp images, a feature which signals the end to blurring for the fast paced action seen in sports and movies.
The design of Samsung 7900 series is unrivalled is has a 0.2 inch brushed metal bezel which is barely visible when viewing. Also the 1.2 profile means that this TV can be easily wall mounted like a work of art.
Micro Dimming Plus
This is a feature which is Samsung’s answer to eliminating the halo effect characterized in edge-lit LED TVs. It works by individually analysing every area of the picture and adjusting it accordingly so that the bright parts of the picture do not bleed over into the darker parts. The result is that the ‘glowing effect’ seen around bright objects is reduced and the clarity of fine details are restored.
Smart TV with Samsung Apps
Smart TV has transformed the home TV into an all-in-one entertainment platform. The Samsung UN55D7900 uses the Samsung Smart Hub to bring a whole new range of entertainment options to the viewer. It integrates all forms of content from TV, movies, digital devices such as computers and cameras, internet services and social media using the easy-to-use menu system and built-in Wi-Fi connectivity.
You can view movies or digital images from a DLNA compatible device such as a PC, camera or Smartphone or connect to a wide range of web services such as Netflix, Pandora and YouTube.
