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.
Full HD 1080p
With twice the resolution of standard HD TVs, Samsung TVs deliver images that will enhance the home entertainment experience. The realistic texture of Full HD images invites you to enjoy a viewing experience that redefines reality.
Clear Motion Rate of 720
Experience sharp picture quality, even when you are watching fast-moving images like sports or action movies. Clear Motion Rate was developed to accurately measure how well a LCD or LED TV can depict fast-moving images. Previously, motion-clarity was calculated by the frame refresh rate alone. But CMR offers a more complete measure by calculating 3 factors: frame refresh rate, image processor speed and backlight technology. A CMR of 720 pushes motion-clarity to advanced levels of breathtaking quality. LED TVs with this CMR can display action-packed movement with ultra-sharp detail and the deepest levels of black and white for a superior contrast.
Wide Color Enhancer Plus
Allows you to see picture color the way the director originally intended, brought to life on your screen to bring you vibrant, yet natural-looking images and subtle details and tones.
This unit features 20W (10W x 2) audio power stereo broadcast reception. It supports multi-channel sound (MTS) and second audio program (SAP) with 181-channel capacity.
Samsung's Dual Core's processing speeds allow you to perform multiple tasks at the same time, such as using an app while downloading another one. It also enables faster web browsing while playing apps or TV programs that you've recently opened through the Recent History feature.
Dolby Digital Plus/ Dolby Pulse:
This new technology is an advanced surround sound audio processing feature designed to optimize the TV's sound quality when viewing and listening to Internet movies, Internet music and other content played back from wired or wireless mobile phones, PCs and tablet devices.
SRS TheaterSound HD
SRS TheaterSound HD is a high-definition audio experience that delivers surround sound multi-channel content, using built-in TV speakers to enhance both the depth and dimension of audio right through the TV.
Skype on your TV lets you make video calls from the comfort of your living room. Using the TV's remote control, you can create free Skype accounts, log into existing accounts and navigate via a simple Skype interface made for the big screen. Calls to other Skype users are often free. Skype camera kit sold separately.
With built-in Wi-Fi, no additional wires are needed to connect with an existing wireless router in your home network and start accessing Samsung Apps or other Smart TV features.
Ultra Clear Panel
Sometimes you can't keep sunlight or house lights from shining right on your TV screen. With Samsung's Ultra Clear Panel, you can still get an amazing picture even with reflective light. Ultra Clear Panel absorbs most ambient light and virtually eliminates reflections. Ultra Clear Panel also helps make colors more vibrant with deeper blacks and enhanced contrast for crisper images and excellent shadow detail.
Sync Media from Multiple Devices with AllShare
AllShare syncs your digital devices so you can enjoy music, movies and photos from your PC, camera and mobile devices, on your larger TV screen. Connects you to multiple PCs, as well.

With Samsung's Anynet+ you'll enjoy one-touch control for all your Samsung HDMI-connected compatible devices like your Samsung TV, Blu-ray Disc player, AV Receiver and Home Theater.
