The Samsung UE 46C7000 is 46 inches of HD beauty. It is the first 3D TV and it just 27 millimeters thick. You can play games, watch 3D Blue-ray movies, and watch 3D broadcasts. We are to see if this Samsung TV is worth the price.
Ever since Samsung released its first LED TV, it has always us with its sleekness. This model is no exception to that fact. The Samsung UE 46C7000 measures 27 millimeters and no other LCD TV is that thin. Even the more expensive ones cannot beat the slimness of LED TVs of Samsung. Somehow, they were able to add a very important feature and that is 3D. Whether you are playing 3D games or watching a movie, this feature will blow your mind away. We never thought the one of the slimmest TV in the world could support 3D without sacrificing any of its functions.
The Samsung UE 46C7000 LCD TV includes two pairs of active shutter glasses that you can use to watch 3D movies or games. Unlike cardboard 3D glasses, the active shutter technology does not compromise color. You will see two 1080p images that swing from one to the other. This quality is made possible by a refresh rate of 100 MHz, which is more than twice the normal rate of most LCD TVs.
Let us take a deeper look at this 3D technology and see how well it performs. The Samsung UE 46C7000 may not be as good as an IMAX, but it is very close. The advantage it has with an IMAX theater is its glasses. Unlike traditional cardboard red and blue glasses, you do not get dizzy after watching a 3D movie. With the help of Shutter technology, you can watch 3D movies at the convenience of your own house. This is a very big leap when it comes to home theater technology. As for regular viewing, the images look vivid and clear.
Now, let us look at 2D HD content. The color depth of the UE 46C7000 is comparable to the best LCDs in the market today. Even though it is very slim, the color is still as vivid as ever. The contrast or lighting is well balanced because of the improved diffuser.
The Samsung UE 46C7000 has four HDMI v1.4 sockets and one composite video. If you want to connect it to a computer, you will need to use a dongle, which will cost a few pounds. In addition, this slim LCD TV can record movies content from its Freeview HD tuner and save it to a flash drive or external hard drive using the MPEG-4 video format.
The tiny speakers can provide ample sound, but it might not be enough to fill an entire room. If you are using this LCD in your living room, you might want to add some speakers. The Samsung UE 46C7000 is a very efficient machine. It only uses up around 170 Watts when it is operational, but when it is on standby it goes down to a measly 0.06 Watts.
Overall, the Samsung UE 46C7000 is a very good LCD TV. This is a good upgrade if you have an older LCD that does not support any 3D function. It is a little expensive, but its Full HD 3D, two pairs of 3D glasses, and impressive design is worth the price.
