New for 2013. Samsung’s fourth generation of 3D LED backlit TVs from Samsung. Samsung’s UN55F7100 55-inch LED backlit HDTV (with Micro Dimming) is 3D ready and comes with 4 pairs of active 3D glasses. The new for 2013 Micro Dimming LED backlight technology is an improvement to last year’s model which had no local dimming technology. It uses special edge mounted LEDs to enable the controlled lighting of variable size areas. This provides for better picture and contrast whether watching 2D or 3D. 3D movies such as Avatar and other movies have created demand for 3D programming for HDTVs for the home. With this HDTV you can use the included 3D glasses with 3D Blu-ray players, and watch 3D specific programming as they come available on cable and satellite. Included on this TV is 720 CMR (clear motion rate) anti-blur technology. 240Hz provides blur free, clear motion. This full HD 1080p HDTV has DLNA CERTIFIED® connectivity lets you remotely access music, video, and photos. The 1080p display has over two million pixel resolution, along with DTS Premium Audio 5.1 sound.

Smart-Review Commentary: For 2013, The F7100 Series is Samsung’s lowest priced 240Hz LED TV, yet is fully loaded with features. This fourth generation LED 3D TV has a powerful dual core processor, which will speed up the Smart TV features, allow multitasking, and allow new features. Many of the older Smart TVs are just too sluggish, so the dual core processor will remedy that. Its built-in WiFi adapter allows wireless connectivity. The Smart TV content and services have been upgraded, and it has a full internet browser, which can use a wireless keyboard. The F7100 Series comes with a regular universal remote plus the Smart Touch Remote Control which provides a touchpad and microphone for Smart TV operations. Another substantial upgrade is the edge mounted Micro-Dimming which will provide whiter whites, and blacker blacks than TVs without local dimming. Power consumption averages only 58 watts. For 3D Samsung has provided 4 pairs of 3D glasses, an upgrade to 720 CMR anti blur technology with 240Hz, and lower power consumption. The UN55F7100 is a substantial upgrade from last year’s ES7100 model. We previewed this TV at CES 2013 (see picture above) and it had a very impressive picture. Consumer reviews have been excellent. We believe that this will be one of the top LED TV values for 2013 and is a SmartReview Top Pick.
