Our take on the Samsung UN55ES7100

by Steve Kindig
Samsung

Why choose an LED-LCD TV?

Reason #1: Awesome picture quality. The LED backlights in these higher-end LCD TVs can give you better picture contrast and more lifelike colors than sets with typical fluorescent backlighting. Reason #2: They're more energy-efficient than plasma or regular LCD TVs, helping you lower your monthly electric bill and helping the environment.

Cutting-edge design inside and out

Samsung's UN55ES7100 is one of the company's most visually striking 2012 TVs. Its "barely there" bezel measures under 1/4", making it even easier for you to get lost in the crystal-clear picture.

Samsung's Micro Dimming LED backlight technology produces wide contrast extremes from deep black to bright white, plus every subtle shade in between. The TV divides the image into multiple areas and applies the correct contrast levels to each area. The edge-mounted LEDs can actually brighten or dim independently based on the content in each scene.

Dual core processor

A dual-core processor delivers faster web browsing

Web access on your TV takes a big leap forward with this model. A dual-core processor enables faster web browsing and multitasking — you can download an app while you're using another one. Samsung provides practical, easy ways to enjoy online entertainment. Whether your connection is wired or wireless, you can surf the web while you watch movies and TV shows, and enjoy TV while you chat with friends and family online.

There are built-in apps for accessing video services like Netflix®, Hulu Plus™, and YouTube™, and you can download new Samsung apps, all custom built to work on your TV. Samsung's new Signature Services include things like personalized movie and show recommendations, and the ability to set up and maintain a fitness routine.

The right connections to be your digital entertainment hub

Two types of connections have become truly universal in recent years: HDMI and USB, and the UN55ES7100 has three of each. High-definition components like cable and satellite TV receivers look and sound their best via HDMI, and so do a growing number of digital cameras and camcorders. And the USB ports let you plug in a wide array of devices — everything from a thumb drive to an optional webcam that's needed if you want to make Skype™ video calls.

Samsung upgraded their AllShare™ networking feature so you can access your content from the cloud and also let other compatible devices join in the fun. You just use the TV's remote to search for video and music to stream to it.

3D fun with no waiting — 4 pairs of 3D glasses are included

3D TV Learn more

The UN55ES7100 uses Samsung's latest Full HD active 3D technology to deliver spellbinding visuals with your favorite 3D movie titles. Just slip on a pair of the included 3D glasses to enjoy a deeper view, and not just with 3D video sources — switch on the TV's 2D-to-3D conversion feature for added depth with regular 2D video. And even if you're not interested in 3D this set is still worth considering. Its advanced 3D-capable screen produces some of the most beautifully vivid 2D images you'll find anywhere.

Video Features

Ultra Clear Panel: 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 so there are hardly any distractions. Ultra Clear Panel also helps make colors more vibrant with deeper blacks and enhanced contrast for crisper images and excellent shadow detail.

LED Edge-Lighting: Samsung's LED Edge-Lighting technology allows for a high dynamic contrast ratio and ultra-sharp blacks by allowing multiple LEDs to turn on an off automatically based on the image. LED Edge-Lighting also provides more natural color representation and deep reds and greens, because Samsung uses white LEDs that produce 105% of the broadcast color gamut. The television's white LEDs are arranged along the left and right edges of the screen and a proprietary light guide is used to focus its luminance inwards towards the middle of the screen for a more uniform brightness. Overall, this LED Backlight system produces contrast with stronger blacks and whites, and greater subtlety of every gradation in between.

Micro Dimming: Micro Dimming Technology shows greater detailed contrast across the screen with richer, brighter colors, whiter whites and deeper blacks. The Samsung ES660 series LED-LCD TV has a proprietary algorithm that adjusts brightness and contrast in select parts of the screen based on the image being displayed.

Clear Motion Rate 720: Clear Motion Rate (CMR) is Samsung's more comprehensive and accurate measure for how well the LED-LCD TV can display fast-moving images. Previously, motion clarity was expressed simply by the refresh rate, measured in Hz. CMR, however, takes into account all three factors that contribute to motion clarity: panel refresh rate, image processor speed and backlight technology. CMR is measured by determining the thinnest line a TV can display in a moving image. The thinner the line, the higher the CMR rating, and the clearer the picture you'll enjoy on the screen.

  • Panel Refresh Rate (Hz): Samsung's screen refresh rate (240Hz) significantly improves motion detail and resolution by sampling the image more frequently, leading to smoother, more fluid movement.
  • Image Processor (Auto Motion Plus): Samsung's proprietary Auto Motion Plus image processing technology is faster and more responsive than conventional image processors, as it interpolates intermediate frames to smooth out the image.
  • LED Backlight Technology: Samsung's Edge-Lighting Backlight technology regulates output precisely in synchronization with the screen refresh to lessen the time it is lit, reducing ghosting and motion blur.

Auto Motion Plus 240Hz: With Samsung's Auto Motion Plus 240Hz with Clear Motion Rate, you can enjoy smooth motion in every frame. Advanced TV panels and unique backlight technology combine with proprietary algorithms to significantly reduce image response time. The lower the response time, the higher the Clear Motion Rate (CMR). Samsung's industry leading Clear Motion Rates yields the most accurate image reproduction for the clearest moving images. Auto Motion Plus 240Hz can be set to Clear, Standard, Smooth, Custom, Demo, or Off. The custom mode lets you manually adjust the Blur & Judder reduction.

Wide Color Enhancer Plus: Wide Color Enhancer Plus allows you to see picture color the way the director originally intended. Witness the entire RGB spectrum brought to life on your screen to bring you exceptionally vibrant, yet natural-looking images faithful to the director's original intent.

20,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio: The LED-LCD TV delivers a Dynamic Contrast Ratio of 20,000,000:1; which provides stunning colors and deep black, so your picture's details don't get lost in the shadows.

HDTV Tuner: The TV has built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and Digital Cable (QAM) tuners, so you don't need a separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV or unencrypted Digital Cable signals.

1080p Resolution: The LED-LCD television displays all inputs at a resolution of 1080p (1920 x 1080). The television's HDMI and component video inputs will accept 1080p (24/60Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i video signals.

  • HDMI (v.1.4): The Samsung ES7100 series LED-LCD TV features three HDMI 1.4 inputs to connect to your Blu-ray/DVD player, Satellite/Cable receiver, or AV receiver. In addition, any HDMI input can be used to connect a PC to this TV.
  • Component Video: The Samsung ES7100 series LED-LCD TV features a single component video input. The TV's component video input can also be used as a composite video input (480i only).
  • Composite Video: In addition, there is a composite video input (480i only). This inputs consists of a 3.5mm AV input with a 3.5mm AV input to composite video/stereo RCA adapter.

Full HD 3D (via HDMI 1.4): The Samsung ES7100 series LED-LCD TV offers Full HD (1080p) 3D capability. Samsung 3D TV utilizes Bluetooth-enabled active shutter glasses (four pair included) for a full 1080p 3D viewing experience when coupled with a 3D source, such as a 3D-ready Blu-ray player or an HD 3D broadcast from satellite or cable providers (connected via HDMI 1.4). The Samsung ES7100 series LED-LCD TV automatically adjusts the overall picture to provide an optimal 3D effect. The Samsung 3D TV also offers a unique feature that allows you to intensify your 2D viewing experience by up-converting it to virtual 3D. In addition, you can adjust the overall 3D perspective (+/-5) and overall 3D image depth (1-10). Samsung 3D TV supports Full HD 3D for 1920 x 2205p (24Hz) or 1280 x 1470p (60Hz) video signals; and virtual 3D for 1920 x 1080p (24/30/60Hz),  1920 x 1080i (60Hz), or 1280 x 720p (60hz) video signals. The Samsung ES7100 series LED-LCD TV offers various 3D modes to match your 3D viewing needs.

Audio Outputs: The Samsung LED-LCD television provides an analog and digital audio output.

  • Digital Audio: The optical digital output terminal will output Dolby Digital (when available) or 2 channel PCM. The digital optical output terminal only sends an audio signal in Dolby Digital when receiving Dolby Digital surround sound from a digital broadcast channel through the TV tuner or a Samsung App via a network connection. The optical digital audio output will only output in 2ch stereo from sources connected to the TV via HDMI, RCA, or USB.
  • Analog Audio: The television features a 3.5mm (minijack) audio output for connecting the television to an analog 2-channel receiver. You will need a minijack-to-RCA adapter (119MCON2M, sold separately) to make a stereo RCA connection between the television and your AV receiver. The TV's analog audio output terminals will output 2ch audio from any of the television's source inputs.

ARC (Audio Return Channel): The Audio Return Channel in HDMI 1.4 enables a TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data "upstream" to an A/V receiver; increasing user flexibility and eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection. This feature allows audio to be sent from the television to your A/V receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio/video to the television. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to the TV. ARC allows audio from the TV tuner, Network connection, inserted USB device, HDMI inputs, or any analog connected device to be heard through your ARC compatible AV receiver via the television's HDMI ARC input. The audio from the TV's tuner, network connection can pass as Dolby Digital or 2ch PCM. HDMI, USB, and analog connected devices will be output as 2ch PCM only.

Note:  Both the television and the receiver must support ARC for this function to work properly. When connecting an A/V receiver that is compatible with Audio Return Channel (ARC), connect it to the TV's HDMI 2 input. If connecting a system that is incompatible Audio Return Channel (ARC), an additional audio connection via Digital Audio Out (Optical) is necessary.

Most Excellent!

Written By Doug, Honolulu HI on Monday, December 24, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
We have been using this tv for about 3 months now and we are still in awe! My son, who just arrived to visit us for Christmas, is also in awe. His words - crisp clean picture and everything is detailed - there are no blurry parts.
Pros:
The smart tv part is a real plus. I am really pleased with the ability to go one place and view all of your choices, no more switching between various components to get to netflix or amazon prime or anything else. I haven't even explored all of the features yet.
Cons:
After three months, I have not yet found any.

Just got this TV set on time for Xmas and got it installed and set up in no time. I love the Smart TV features which makes setup and accesing internet service providers easy. The picture quality is crystal clear and its light weight makes this set a breeze to handle and hang on the wall. Great buy!
Pros:
Easy setup. Smart TV features. Great picture quality. Light weight and small form factor (depth)
Cons:
None so far.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Love everything so far after one week. Picture great , set-up easy. Having a little trouble setting up apps to access Netflix. Connection to router shows to be okay but keeps telling me cannot connect to internet...contact service provider. Just started playing with it last night so have not had much time to investigate ,but, I really do not think it is an internet issue. May be an issue with Samsung Smart hub based on other threads.
Pros:
Picture quality , ease of set-up/installation
Cons:
Cannot access internet yet via wireless. Also, did not receive 3-D glasses.

Remote could use some work

Written By Russell B., Salinas, CA on Thursday, November 22, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
All in all it's a beautiful tv. It loses a star simply because the remote control layout is less than ideal with the playback controls being at the bottom of the unit. Also, the remote performance is abysmal when using apps such as Netflix and Hulu +. I assume this is a software problem and would amend my review once it is fixed.
Pros:
Picture, sound, 3d, low profile, angle viewing
Cons:
Remote control

Great TV!

Written By Dave, Pittsburgh, PA on Monday, November 19, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Compared to my 10 year old (300 lb.) HD, CRT, this is a beautiful TV. Setup is a cinch, even with Wi-Fi. Netflix and Pandora navigation are greatly improved compared to my 4-year old Blu-Ray DVD player navigation. I love the 5.1 Netflix and the picture quality is great, again, even with Wi-Fi - I do have FiOs, but the "base" speed. The "app" navigation is a little odd, but I realize that this is a newer option for TVs, so I'm sure it'll be improved upon over the years, hopefully with firmware updates on the TV too. I have tried the 3D and the glasses take some getting used to, but it's a cool gimmick for now. I think I'll stick with 2D still for a while, although with the free glasses and 3D Blu-Ray player, why not try 3D?? HD is incredible. SD, scaled up to HD (sitcom reruns) isn't great, but it's hard to hide that on a 55" TV.
Pros:
Incredible picture; option to resize the screen is VERY nice if I'm just watching reruns - Seinfeld at 55" is a little much sometimes.
Cons:
App navigation and some are paid, some are free; but that's just being nit-picky. The "auto" light-sensing option takes some tweaking - when the majority of the picture is dark/black, my screen practically shuts off, but you can always turn that function off in the menu and adjust the sensitivity.

Sexy to look at

Written By Walker, Marietta Ga on Friday, November 02, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
When it's good, it's really good. It's the prettiest thing on the wall ever. Resolution varies with programming and network which is somewhat annoying. I've really had to work dialing it in which I didn't have to do on my Sony XBR.

I want to love it completely hence 4 instead of 5, but I'm sure once I get it dialed in it will be a 5.
Pros:
Actual design beautiful and second to none. Wireless connection and updating was quick and painless. Crutchfield customer service and delivery flawless as always.
Cons:
Hard to dial picture in. Lower resolution programming looks bad and changing settings each time too much trouble.

Unbelievably clear picture

Written By Jim, Texas on Sunday, September 16, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Wow! Outstanding picture and very easy to set up. User's manual very straight forward and easy to understand. Gave the tv a four star review only because it really needs either a sound bar(bought the Samsung HW-E551 2.1 system) or be hooked to a high quality surround system. Crutchfield support, from ordering, through delivery, was outstanding as usual.
Pros:
Picture Ease of installation
Cons:
Sound

Amazing Picture

Written By Harriet, Santa Cruz, CA on Tuesday, September 04, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Fantastic picture, and the HD is apparent even with only digital cable (no HD cable service yet). The first thing we watched was a Pixar movie and it was AWESOME! Easy set up, and the thin frame makes the picture appear to be floating on your wall. Sounded good even before I set up the sound bar. I did find the WiFi navigation cumbersome with the arrows on the remote so plan on using a wireless keyboard for more ease. It took a long time to make this decision and I am happy with my p urchase.
Pros:
Unbelievable picture quality.
Cons:
WiFi navigation.

Samsung shines.

Written By Anonymous, New York City Area on Tuesday, August 28, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Very happy with this TV. It is on a 30inch high piece of furniture and the swivel is very convenient. I did not change the picture in any way. Was not paid by anyone to review this TV. I enjoyed it especially during the olympics. Really glad I didn't chicken out and go with a smaller screen. I did get a new HD cable box and modem free from my cable vendor and I did replace my router. I am learning to use the apps the built in WiFi. Crutchfield has been great to deal with. They gave me prompt service and a price reduction which happened after my date of purchase.
Pros:
Picture is wonderful; swivel really nice; Light weight is a help. Happy with the many features offered in conjunction with the built in WIFi.

Samsung UN55ES7100 Great TV

Written By Brian, McKinney, TX on Sunday, July 29, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This tv is packed with features. The small bezel made it so I could get a larger tv in a built in. I have Time Warner and the picture is amazing on the SD, HD, and 3D channels. It is no Plasma like picture, but you don't have to worry about the burn in problem when pausing a show or playing video games. I currently own 2 other Samsung tvs and I'm convinced they are the best on the market right now. I have heard their customer service is not all that great, but I have not had to call them yet. I would also highly recommend using Crutchfield. Go look at tvs at Best Buy and then buy at Crutchfield. Salesmen will lie straight to your face, like Best Buy did to me. So I took my business somewhere else. I will for sure buy from Crutchfield again
Pros:
Light weight, multiple HDMI connections, and apps
Cons:
typing when internet browsing- you need a wireless keyboard

Awesome TV

Written By WCK, Stoughton, MA on Thursday, May 31, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The picture on this TV is incredible. Have been watching Celtics and Red Sox games. I feel like I am right in the stadium. It was easy to set up. The TV comes up to a blank snowy screen when first coming on after initial setup, so be sure to press the Source button on the remote to choose the correct input (HDMI, etc.) Haven't tried 3D yet, Briefly tried the Smart Hub, Navigating by remote is cumbersome. Will probably purchase a wireless keyboard.
Pros:
Thin, light weight, no frame, the picture fills the entire screen.
Cons:
Navigating internet browser with the remote.

Nice TV!

Written By AMB, Frisco, TX on Friday, May 25, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have only had this TV a few days but since it's new wanted to post my thoughts on here because other peoples comments rate heavily in my decisions when buying online. First off, the TV is really thin and if you have it in a room where you can see how thin it is when you walk by it you will grin every time you do! The picture quality for an LCD / LED TV is really nice and would rate near the top of any comparison test with matching specs. The one thing about the clarity of this TV is that its "almost" too clear. Let me try to explain... In past my experience, I would never notice the quality of the set's where the movies were filmed or the way a group of people just standing there looks just like a group of people just standing there. Its almost like you have been looking out a dirty window your entire life and someone comes by and cleans them for you. Only till after there cleaned do you notice how dirty they were!

Would I recommend this TV, absolutely! The smart hub that now comes on the Samsung TV's are only a few app's away from replacing the iTV, Roku etc!
Pros:
You will have one of the coolest TVs on the block!
Cons:
It does take some time to adjust the color settings but this is a con for all LCD / LED tv's and not just this one.
