4.0 out of 5 stars Very good TV, but not perfect., June 24, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Samsung UN55C7000 55-Inch 1080p 240 Hz 3D LED HDTV (Black) (2010 Model) (Electronics)
Bought this TV (UN55C7000) from Amazon about a month ago for around $1800.

Overall I am very pleased with the TV. The high def quality is exceptionally good. I think Samsung LCDs beat anyone else's LCDs when it comes to pure picture quality. And the bezel is very stylish and thin (though I would have preferred a traditional black stand to this new silver one).

However, there is room for improvmemnt. I do notice some flashlighting from the corners as other reviews have mentioned. It's not terrible and turning the backlight down to 7 helps. It is most noticeable in dark scenes when viewed off angle. I actually bought this TV for my parents house, and I don't think they've even noticed this flashlighting effect. If you don't know to look for it, you might never notice it.

This TV also does not have true local dimming like the 8000 series does. Instead this TV dims or brightens all the backlights simultaneously. Local dimming would have been nice, but that feature probably isn't worth the extra $400 that Samsung charges for it.

As far as the audio on this TV, it's pretty good but not great. I assume that is because now that these new LED TVs are so thin, the bottom facing internal speakers can't really function as well.

For the price Amazon is charging, this TV is a very good buy. Most users will be very impressed with the picture quality and probably never even notice the backlight bleeding issues unless they are pointed out to them.
