I'm Ty Pendlebury and this is a review of the Samsung F7100 LCD TV.
If you were to ask me which Samsung TVs I would recommend to you right now, it would be either the flagship Samsung F8000 or the budget F5000.
Unfortunately, the TVs in the middle are a bit of a mixed bag.
Among all the TV I'm looking at today is better than the 6 series below it, there are competitors that offer better value.
The F7100 is a
nice looking television with a slim silver bezel and a sturdier stand than the cheaper TVs below it.
It comes loaded with features including voice control, a touchpad remote, and sophisticated cable box control.
Apps are also another area where this TV excels with most of the major video services and almost exclusive to Samsung right now is Spotify Playback.
The TV is a decent performer in terms of picture quality with okay black levels and good color.
But given that the best LCD arguably this year, the
Sony W900 is only $400 more than the Samsung, this isn't that great a value.
Without any form of local dimming its blacks are pretty gray in comparison to the almost plasma-like pictures of the Sony.
While Samsung is quite a good TV its competition is simply too strong.
Please just buy Panasonic Plasma while you still can.
