The Samsung UN55ES7003 55" 1080p LED 3D HDTV is a home entertainment anchor. This fully Internet capable 55" flatscreen backlit LED features a high definition resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, two 10W integrated down-firing full range speakers and full 3D inetgration.
The refresh rate on an HDTV will determine how blur-free fast moving images are. Samsung TVs use another indicator - the Clear Motion Rate, a new technology developed by Samsung that is based on panel-processing advances made by their labs. A higher Clear Motion Rate is better, and this unit features a Clear Motion Rate of 720.
The UN55ES7003 55" 1080p LED 3D HDTV features two integrated down-firing full range speakers for a combined total of 20W (two 10W speakers). The HDTV is Dolby Digital Plus/Dolby Pulse certified. Basically, DD+ and DP are a new way of listening to music from less than desirable audio sources. Originally developed to boost the sound quality of Internet music sources, the technology now enhances your speakers and the sound output on your TV so that even small speakers have a shot at a grand sound. The TV also includes SRS TheaterSound HD to deliver multi-channel sound.
Another technology that Samsung provides is their Wide Color Enhancer Plus. This allows sharper color processing and less saturation for greater clarity. Even with fast moving action scenes, the images remain natural in tone and clear in definition. This unit also includes micro dimming, which manipulates the LED backlighting to help provide more precise color tuning by dimming and strengthening the lights to areas of the panel that need it. If one area is covered in darkness for a night scene, the lights are micro dimmed there, and then boosted in lighter scenes.
But the real selling point of Smart TVs are the amazing content they offer, including streaming services like Netflix and HuluPlus, or the social networks you can access like FaceBook and Skype. Imagine Skyping to friends from a 55" TV, and you can imagine how much fun this TV can be. Samsung also offers a hub-full of content that is aimed at personal enlightenment - weight training, kids-specific content, and family-oriented apps - that enhance your viewing experience, and go way past what your cable provider offers.
Besides the Wide Color Enhancer and ConnectShare Movie Technology (that enables a user to access camcorder videos and music libraries directly on a TV screen), other features include an Eco Sensor, Game Mode, Auto Channel Search, Auto Power Off, Auto Volume Leveler, Clock & On/Off Timer, Closed Captioning a built in DTV Tuner, Sleep Timer, and V-Chip (which allows parents to block inappropriate movies and programs based upon their FCC rating.) It also features AllShare, which wirelessly syncs a PC and other digital devices to a TV for full screen playability, BD Wise Technology, that automates the best resolution setting possible for viewing Blu-Ray DVD products, and Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC) Technology that allows one remote to control all digital devices in a home theater/entertainment system.
The connectors for this unit include two HDMI inputs, and one each of Component, Composite and RF ports. It also includes a USB port for connecting hard drives or Flash drives so that you can watch your digital content on the big screen.
