Crutchfield: Samsung Series 7 HDTVs
Crutchfield: Samsung Series 7 HDTVs
Item # 30565H7150 | MFR # 65H7150
This item is no longer available.
Samsung's H7150 series belongs at the top of the list for those looking for high performance and a flat screen — as opposed to a curved screen. The visually stunning UN65H7150 sports an ultra-slim bezel that creates a virtually edgeless look that makes the picture seem even larger. That and the "sled-style" stand instantly grab your attention, but what happens on-screen when you power it up is even more interesting.
The UN65H7150's LED backlight employs Samsung's Micro Dimming Pro technology to produce a more accurate picture. The TV divides the image into multiple areas and applies the correct contrast levels to each area. You'll see a wide range of light levels from bright white to deep black, as well as a nearly infinite number of shades in between. The LED backlight is a high-speed scanning design, which works along with the 240Hz screen refresh rate to virtually eliminate motion blur.
Get ready for a vivid, razor-sharp picture in 2D or 3D. Just slip on a pair of the included glasses to enjoy a deeper view, and not just with true 3D video sources — switch on the TV's 2D-to-3D conversion for added depth with regular 2D video. And even if 3D doesn't appeal to you right now, this set still deserves consideration if picture quality is your number one priority. It's that good.
The UN65H7150 is smarter than the average Smart TV thanks to its speedy quad-core processor. A new Multi-Link feature lets you place live TV side-by-side with other apps, like YouTube™ or a web browser — you can browse the web without having to interrupt what you're watching. The Dual Screen feature splits the screen into dual windows so you can view two sources at once.
There's a cool screen mirroring feature that turns your compatible Samsung smartphone or tablet into a second TV. Whatever appears on the TV screen is streamed via Wi-Fi to your device. If you need to leave the room — like, maybe to fix a sandwich — you won't have to leave your entertainment behind. It's like a whole-house television system you can hold in your hand.

Average Customer Review(s):
Beautiful tv. Great picture. Like how slim it is and fits so close to the wall.Nice clean look.
Pros: Looks good, great picture. Easy to set up.
Easy setup, still trying to "touch" all the features. Picture is awesome - big improvement over Samsung DLP.
Pros: setup weight
Cons: takes up less space than 61" TV - need to fill it!
Nice clear picture, love the smart tv options, just an over all great TV.
I am disappointed at the way "this" tv looks, it has a strange faded ghosting look to it when a dark scene is displayed where a white background was once in it's place. I.e. If someone is wearing a white shirt and the next scene is a dark background, the white will fade slowly showing the pattern of the previous picture....
Pros: Smart remote and apps I LOVE!
Cons: Picture irregularity .........
I did a lot of on line research, plus some visits to Big Box Retailers. I wanted to replace a 50 inch LG Plasma with a larger screen, and was skeptical that an LED set would achieve the same picture quality that I had grown accustomed to with the Plasma.... What pleasand surprise!!! The picture is better than I ever thought it could be. Crisp, clear, and detailed. Easy to set up.... Very pleased with the purchase. Crutchfield was great to deal with, quick shipment, delivered on time and coordinated well. Couldn't ask for a better experience....
great picture quality and ease of installation/programming
This is a great TV. Very clear picture and good motion resolution. Its also very energy efficient. My kids use it for watching TV in the basement and with their xbox. Very happy with it for this type of use. It does have the typical limitations of an edge lit LED TV and is no match for my F8500 plasma in viewing off angle and black level but for this type of TV Samsung has done a very good job minimizing these issues and as long as you are not watching TV in a dark room or at a severe angle these factors don't come in to play.
Pros: Picture quality & motion resolution
Cons: If you are a dark room movie buff its not a plasma / oled
This replaces an older first-generation Samsung LCD TV and the difference is light-years better. I also have an 8000 series, but this still trumps that one. The picture is crisp, the blacks are dark, and the frame rate is fantastic. The SmartTV interface has been re-vamped, and though it takes a bit of getting used to as I am familiar with the prior interface, this is speedier and more organized. The bezel is super thin, and so is the TV itself, though I have it on a stand rather than wall-mounted so it doesn't really matter. The only complaint I have about the stand is that it doesn't swivel - you have to angle the stand itself.
Pros: Great picture, great colors, fast interface
Cons: Stand doesn't swivel
After much research, I purchased the Samsung 7150. Very happy I did. As always, Crutchfield is excellent!. TV arrived a day early, and in perfect condition. Beautiful picture out of the box. Tweaked it a little, and it looks great. This is my second Samsung. Making the switch from Sony. Comparing the picture with my 55" 2 year old Sony, the Samsung is wonderful. Fast action is a pleasure to watch. You will not be disappointed.
Pros: Beautiful picture, sleek design, fast action viewing.
This TV is really going to impress you with its picture quality. I purchased this one a few weeks ago, to replace an older model of the same size that was damaged by my kids. Without knowing it was new, most of my guests for the Superbowl still asked if I had upgraded recently. Set-up was easy. I had it out of the box and ready to go in about 30 mins. including connecting it to my WiFi network. It's loaded with streaming apps, but my wife has not been entirely impressed. It frequently needs more buffering time and becomes very unresponsive to remote control commands when streaming. She has gone back to using the Xbox 360 as her Amazon Prime source.
Pros: Fantastic picture! Easy set-up. Rich feature set.
Cons: Poor streaming app performance.
After unboxing and mounting the TV I was a little nervous with the factory configuration. After searching online and trying two different calibrations I ended up using a review users configuration and I have been floored every since. This is an immaculate picture and I am hard pressed to find any flaws. As far as other features of the TV I simply just don't use them. I bought the TV for the picture and that is it. I can say that the 3D and smart TV functions work. Bottom line is if you are looking for a super clean picture than this is your TV.
Pros: Excellent picture, super sleek & affordable for the top notch quality.
Cons: I am simply hard pressed to find anything negative. Maybe they could give you a case for the 3D glasses. :)
Excellent TV, do not look any further if you came this far and found this TV as an option. What I really like to emphasize here is the customer care experience that I had with Crutchfield. We picked this TV from air freight plant near the airport one night and I did not realize that the box had a few deep slashes until i set the box in my den. With increased heart rate, I opened the box only to find out that the screen sitting under those slashes on the box was damaged pretty bad. I quickly took a few photos and called Crutchfield customer service. The gentleman that I talked to asked me to send those photos by email, but assured me a new TV was on its way. No questions asked. In a few days, I went to pick up my brand new TV (of course opened the box and checked the TV in the freight plant before loading it into my car) and dropped off the damaged one. Very impressed with the level of customer care by Crutchfield. This was not my first order from Crutchfield, and definitely will not be the last one. Thanks Crutchfield.
Received the TV in a few days after placing the order and had it on the wall the very same day. It has a fantastic picture. The sound is pretty lame, but I'm sure all flat panel TV's are like that. Luckily I'll be designing and installing a custom surround sound system. Overall very satisfied with this purchase.
This is a replacement for a 12 year old tv. Has technology changed in that time! You have to tinker with it for your personal preferences -- but the picture is great. The thin bezel is barely visible when the tv is on. Although the television has a 65" screen, it doesn't take up that much space on the floor. The smart control is tricky to use at first, but I'm getting better at it. Easy to connect other devices. All this for a great price backed by the Crutchfield lifetime support promise. Looked at this TV from other dealers (on-line and in stores) for the same price. Finally swayed by their promise of tech support for the life of the TV. Not bad at all.
Pros: Slim profile / great picture / full featured TV / great price / Crutchfield support / fast & free shipping
Cons: Some features difficult to set up and navigate
Great picture out of the box. Love it
Cons: Haven't found any yet
Pros: easy to setup, good value, amazing picture
Very happy with this TV.
Great picture in most respects. Live sports has very sharp picture, however during fade outs which blur on the previous TV (14 years old) they now pixilate.
Pros: Sharp picture.
Cons: I should have gotten a bigger one.
This TV shipped quickly and was delivered promptly by the delivery service. Setup was easy. I really like the thin border and the stylish stand. But, I immediately noticed some problems with the picture quality. The motion was jittery and portions of the screen would occasionally go in and out of focus. I called Crutchfield customer service and the knowledgeable technician helped me walk through some of the advanced TV settings. But, we couldn't get the problem fixed by adjusting any of the settings. So, the Crutchfield technician offered to send me a replacement TV immediately. That kind of customer service is why I don't buy electronics from anyone other than Crutchfield. 5 stars for the service. 1 star for this defective TV. I'll average those to 3 stars. I'm looking forward to getting my replacement TV and perhaps giving a 5 star rating.
After grilling the Crutchfield rep for 45min, he answered everyone of my questions. He knew the product. I had been looking at this TV for 6mons. I had read a ton of reviews on this set. I have not experienced any of the problems in the neg. reviews. Great picture and color and depth of the picture.. I read the quick set up before starting setup& all went smoothly. Most of my entertainment system came from Crutchfield. The ARC and RIHD works just like the Crutchfield rep told me it would. I have a great system and am very pleased with it. I have recommended Crutchfield to many of my friends. Their experiences have been the same.
Pros: Great picture and depth of picture. Color is fantastic. I love the audio return channel function. Cuts down on cables and extra connections. The RIHD function is fantastic. I can put a DVD in my player and it turns on the player, receiver, and TV to the correct inputs. The TV had everything that I was looking for. Ask me in five years for durability. The one thing that is really important to me is the Crutchfield experience and technical knowledge.
Cons: Nothing that I can think of.
Great picture. Easy set-up.
Pros: Picture, picture picture
I had held off purchasing a new TV for several months - paralysis by analysis. But I was in Charlottesville and stopped by the store and really liked the smaller version they had displayed. I'm not an overly tech savvy person but I know what I like - and I like this television. I received the set within days of ordering and the set up was simple. I had to wait until I transitioned to HD cable before I really discovered the potential of this TV. The picture is fabulous! Great colors and clarity - and the sound from the TV is very respectable. I am very satisfied with this purchase and would highly recommend it.
Pros: Fantastic picture. Easy set up.
Cons: You will need and HD signal to truly realize this set's potential.
Great TV very clear picture and also great sound.
Pros: Very easy setup and great picture out of the box.
Cons: None so far.
Have only had this tv for less than a Wk, but so far it's amazing. Easily the best in its price range, and the great Crutchfield black Friday price I picked it up for just made it that much better. Now I am coming from a 4 yr old Samsung LCD so any tv would have been an upgrade, but having done research online and in stores this was it.
Pros: Very easy setup , great picture out of the box before any picture settings were done
Cons: none so far.
Very nice TV. Set up was quite simple and the picture is very good. I highly recommend this TV, but I most definitely recommend Crutchfield. Thanks Guys
Pros: Great Picture, Great Price
Cons: None to speak of
Pros: Awesome pic 3d. Great experience with Crutchfield. Best price around.
Great TV. Great picture. Amazingly intelligent. I connected the HDMI cable and it asked a few questions and automatically connected with every component of my system. It turns all components on and off and controls them as well. Truly a "smart" TV.
Pros: Great picture. Amazing intelligence.
We have had this TV now for a couple weeks and I'm very pleased with it. After reading way too many reviews, I had narrowed my choices down to this or the HU8550. Since our internet speeds will not support streaming 4K content, I couldn't justify the higher cost for the 8550, so we went with this. To be clear, I'm not a videophile and I can live with minor imperfections. On our TV there is a little bit of flashlighting on the corners of the screen on the left hand side. I really have only noticed it in one of the startup screens - even when I watched the first 30 minutes of Gravity, I didn't notice the flashlighting there. The picture with a blu-ray source looks fantastic, and streaming movies off of Netflix looks equally impressive. My family watched a couple 3D movies on this TV now and we were all equally impressed with how good the 3D pictures were. it's our first 3D TV and it is fun to have this option available. Our other TV is an 8 year old 37" TV and jumping to the 65" 7150 is an amazing improvement. My only complaint at this point is that I purchased this TV with a Sony soundbar, and I cannot get the two to communicate using the ARC connection. I've worked with Crutchfield customer service to go through the relevant settings on both the TV and the soundbar and it just isn't happening. It's not a big deal - I just have to connect the digital optical cable between the two, and then I'll probably invest in a universal remote.
Pros: Great picture; 3D movies work well; connecting to the internet and streaming Netflix was easy
Cons: ARC connection with Sony soundbar doesn't appear to work. Have not done enough troubleshooting to know if it is the TV, the soundbar, the HDMI cable or just basic incompatibility - it just doesn't work.
Every time I walked past this screen in an electronics store I had to stop and look. The picture is that awesome. I can't imagine it being any better. Also, at a standard 10' viewing distance, I don't know that a 4K screen would make much of a difference in my case. Perhaps if I had 20/20 vision. The smarTV features seem cool, although I've not used them yet. I may get around to it eventually, but I bought this as a display only. Great screen. Highly recommended.
Pros: Beautiful picture, many customization possibilities, very thin and light, minimalist bezel.
Cons: Not the latest 4K technology
Love it - highly recommend this TV. I read the reviews and they're all true.
Purchasing from Crutchfield is always a pleasant experience. The TV was delivered on time and in perfect condition. After assembling the stand and turning the TV on, I was shocked at the terrible color/picture that it was showing on the screen. I have three other Samsung TV's and they all have beautiful pictures. The contrast, color and tint had been set to 100% at the factory. After a couple days of adjusting and fine tuning, that rascal has a picture that will rank with the very best of them. I couldn't ask for a better picture. I plugged a wireless Logitech keyboard receiver into one of the USB plugs on the back of the TV and can now use it like a computer. You can surf the web, check your email or anything else you want to do. The keyboard works good but the interface is clunky........not one of Samsung's finer features but on the other hand, it wasn't designed to be a computer..
Pros: A nice looking large TV with many features. The picture is excellent.
Cons: None so far.
I purchased this TV about 10 days ago because I was seriuosly jealous of my friend that just bought a 65" Samsung 30 days ago! ;) The delivery came promptly a shorter time frame than UPS estimated. Once the TV made its way to the local UPS station they called to arrange a confirmed time frame for delivery. It arrived as expected without issue. I moved from an older 52" Samsung to this 65". It had a good picture out of the box, but I found a website that gave fine tuned setup settings suggestions that turned out to be a grand improvement over the factory setup. When I unpacked the TV, I had trouble finding the screws for the included base, I called Crutchfield support and they would not hang up until they were certain all was well and I was satisfied. We found the screws in the packing material. They were very courteous and helpful TV Sound - I was worried that the built in sound would not be good enough for regular listening due to the extremely thin profile of the TV and the minute framing around the screen. WOW... I was extremely surprised that with some tinkering with the TV Sound equalizer controls it is very good for regular TV watching. When I watch movies I simply fire up my attached home theater. Haven't yet tried the 3D If you are a baseball or football fan this is the TV for you! I highly recommended the purchase of this TV
Pros: Awesome picture Strong sound levels Basic setup is easy I was able to ditch my Google Chromecast device for the Smart hub options and the built in WiFi connection
Cons: I see that you can talk to the TV to give it instructions, too much to figure out for now, but will get back to it eventually
A big fan of the TV, remote and Crutchfield support. Delivered quickly and painlessly.
Pros: Easy to set up, use etc. Great video quality
Cons: may be too many options for some. Video stabilization should be disabled as to not get the soap opera effect
First off, there is no other place I'd rather deal with when buying electronics than Crutchfield. Every single person I've dealt with has been incredibly helpful, understanding and competent (no surprises really, but still very rare today). Unfortunately, I cannot give too-glowing a review to the UN65H7150...thus far. I experienced the dreaded VERTICAL BANDING to a degree that was annoyingly distracting. Once you see it, you can't help but see it and honestly, at this point in time with technology, it should never be an issue - and Samsung is notorious for it (as are other manufacturers). The television was professionally calibrated, adjusts were made per Samsung's suggestions, brightness and backlight were cut to a minimum...it didn't matter: the fine, dark grey/black vertical lines were there, screen-wide. I've decided to give it one more shot with an exchange (hence the "...thus far" from earlier). Hopefully, I'll find out why everyone loves the TH01 Samsung panel. Maybe, maybe not...
Pros: Great color, clarity, tweaking options.
Cons: Vertical banding. Unacceptable on any TV.
I bought the 65" Samsung Smart TV as a gift for my boyfriend. He had never owned a High Definition TV prior to this purchase and I have to say, he is in heaven. He cannot believe how crystal clear the picture is and doesn't stop talking about how much he loves the new TV. He now tells me "my" 46" Smart TV is too small to watch! He was amazed at Netfix, which he had never seen before. I have to say, this was the best gift to give him, which I wanted to do because his health was declining and I wanted to cheer him up and make him feel better. Well, it worked...and he's the first to admit it.
Pros: size of screen , clarity of picture, ease of SMART features
TV is awesome so far, but I've only had it mounted for one day. Picture is great with blue rays. The picture is so good that you can tell deficiencies in older programs or bad source videos on the news. Which could considered to be good and bad.
Pros: Remote TV Guide Wired and Wireless network Sirius radio app on smarthub Total integrated navigation with TV/Smarthub/Games
Cons: Only one component input - if you have a receiver that takes all inputs this is not likely an issue for you TV guide is a little slow, but it's still great for antenna users. No NHL network on smart hub My email address was one character too long so the MLB.tv app wouldn't accept it. You will probably still need a 3rd party streamer (like roku or apple tv) if you do more than watch movies.
It's a nice TV and a definite upgrade from the 61" DLP that it replaced. The screen seemed to have a little flicker and trouble with high-speed movements out of the box, but after a few minutes of tweaking the settings, it improved greatly. Still haven't had a chance to play any blu-ray movies on it yet, but I suspect that it will really impress me based on the way that HD cable looks now. The smart functions are also really nice, although, I've only really played with the online services to date.
Pros: lightweight, thin, excellent picture even in strong sunlight
Cons: takes some tweaking initially to get the picture as good as it can be.
We love it. Should have purchased this earlier. Customer service was great.
Pros: Great picture. Love how it adapts to room lighting.
Cons: None so far.
Great picture and all the bells and whistles you will need.
Pros: Easy set up, very intuitive
Cons: Written material (booklets and online) could be a little more user friendly.
Completely love the Samsung LED picture. The Wifi connectivity is awesome. Screen Mirroring is new for me and I love it.
Great TV and great customer service. The first tv they delivered had a dead pixel. Cruthfield shipped a new one and picked up a new one without any problems. I am glad I purchased through them.
Ordered the H7150 in 65". Debated long and hard about going for curved screens and 4K before deciding that a flat 1080 was right for me. I think I made a good decision for my needs. It looks great and I think for the price it is a good value with strong specs and performance in a conventional TV. I rejected the curved screens as little bit gimicky - I don't think they will stand the test of time. They also will only look good in certain locations. As for 4K - I'm not an early adopter and I think you won't get the full value for your $$ for some time yet. In the meantime the technology will improve on 4K as well. As for the H7150 I think it beats the Sony and LG competitors at the same level. The picture is great and consistent across different sources.
Pros: The interactive mouse style remote is a great feature - love it!
Cons: The stand sets the TV very low. Most sound bars would block the IR signal port at the bottom of the acreen.
Amazing picture and features
Pros: 240 Hz Refresh image, Audio, Setup, Color.
Cons: Remote control I think can improved a little more
Picture on this tv is amazing we changed nothing right out of the box. We had a vizio 65" that we sold before we moved. Samsung blows it away in every category, deep blacks, crisp picture, great color . Highly recommend
Pros: Picture Picture Picture
Would buy this tv again excellent purchase
Cons: no cons
Great TV as my last TV was a 40" Samsung Smart TV. The picture is one of the best out there.
Pros: Picture, Color
Cons: None so far
Great looking thin profile on the TV, Picture is incredible. But the ease of setup and installation was the ticket that surprised me. Installation was really a pleasure and an experience so much different than most electronic products. Glad that I hung it on the wall as the stand is not in keeping with the sleek design and it attracts finger prints like nothing else in the house. Crutchfield team helped me design all the hookups and verified that I had all the right components, cables and accessories to make the installation a breeze. will be definitely using them again!
Best TV at very good price from Crutchfield. Fast free shipping.
Pros: Looking good and the picture quality is amazing.
Surpassed my expectations on the clarity of the picture. Simply awesome. Fairly easy to set up. Had a few problems, no fault of the unit, costumer service support quickly pointed me in the right direction. Ease of use is undeniable. Very prompt delivery. For the money and quality of product, do not how you could go wrong buying this tv.
Pros: Ease of setup. Great picture
Cons: None as of 4 weeks into use.
I've been doing my research and the Samsung UN65H7150 stood above the rest for this class and price range. Out of the box and colors looked great. After calibration picture quality was excellent. Blurays never looked this good on my Sharp and DirectTV really adds punch for most HiDef sources. 3D movies blew me away! The Smart TV gives me HBOGO and Netflix so I don't need my AppleTV anymore. I had the TV professional mounted and now there is no reason to leave home. But most importantly, my wife loves it, which is the best endorsement!
Pros: Excellent PQ. Slim design easily hangs on wall as if it's floating. Smart TV provides so many options. Integrated with DirectTV adds so much functionality. With calibration blacks are inkie, greens natural, reds vibrant, flesh tones excellent.
Cons: There is visible clouding on areas without picture source but it may clear up after burn-in period or additional adjustments. Hooking to my Yamaha AV receiver was challenging. Smart Hub with non Samsung components don't always work well together without much fiddling with settings and calling Samsung support was not much help.
I replaced a Vizio 65" with this new Samsung TV. I am very pleased with my purchase.
Pros: Fast Internet
Cons: None so far.

LED Edge-Lighting w/ Micro Dimming Pro: Samsung's LED Edge-Lighting technology w/ Micro Dimming Pro maximizes the contrast between lights and darks to create a picture that is as true-to-life as possible. 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. Samsung's innovative Micro Dimming Pro technology scans zones across the image and adjusts brightness to deliver deeper, darker tones and brighter whites. It also eliminates the "halo" effect and any kind of image distortion that can happen with diffused lights. The result is a picture rich with vivid detail and accurate color reproduction.
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.
Clear Motion Rate 960: 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.
Auto Motion Plus: Auto Motion Plus removes blur and judder from scenes with large amounts of rapid movement to provide a clearer picture. Auto Motion Plus reduces blur so that action movies, sports and video games have enhanced clarity. Advanced panels and unique backlight technology combine with proprietary algorithms to reduce the response time and yield a more accurate image reproduction with faster onscreen motion. Auto Motion Plus can be set to Clear, Standard, Smooth, Custom, or Off.
Wide Color Enhancer Plus + Motion Lighting: With Wide Color Enhancer Plus, you'll witness a wider spectrum of colors on the TV screen, just like the director intended. You'll enjoy enriched colors while watching your favorite movies, and shows, even if it's older, non-HD content. The TV automatically adjust the brightness of the screen in response to the brightness of the room. In bright light, the screen brightens. In dim light, the screen dims.
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.
Note: The TV has built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and Digital Cable (QAM) tuners with an RF-coaxial input, so you don't need a separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV or unencrypted Digital Cable signals.
Full HD 3D (2 Pair of Glasses Included): The Samsung LED-LCD TV offers Full HD (1080p) 3D capability. Samsung 3D TV utilizes Bluetooth-enabled active shutter glasses 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 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, 3D image depth, and 3D brightness.
Note: Samsung 3D TV supports Full HD 3D for 1920 x 1080p (24/60Hz), 1920 x 1080i (60Hz), or 1280 x 720 (60Hz) video signals.
Dual Screens: The Samsung H7150 series LED-LCD TV lets you watch two different sources at once via Multi-Link Screen or PIP.
Picture Control: You can make the following adjustments for an optimum picture.
Note: You can adjust and store Picture Settings for each external device connected to the TV or apply the settings to all inputs and sources.
Film & Game Modes: The television provides Film & Game modes.

Nothing major really a couple of times i had to turn it off and disconnect power for like 10 seconds because it froze on one of the apps . But nothing major[ JOSE A Nov 27, 2014 ]

Mine does but and can"t guarantee that every one will. The panel code is on the outside of the box. Ask them to check it before they ship it to you[ DON Oct 08, 2014 ]
Will have to look that up[ Ronald Oct 07, 2014 ]
I believe so based on a post I just read:UPDATED 7/17/14: A listing of which TV models carry which panels, again quoting the very-helpful Dawn B. Roy: "Here are the panel codes per Samsung own part site: H7150: 46=TS01, 55= TS01, 60= HH01, 65=TH01, 75=TS01. H6400: 40=unknown, 48=TS01, 50=AS01, 55=TS01,US02, 60=HD01, 65=MD01. H6350: 32=TS01, 40=TS01, 48=TS01, 50AH01, 55=TH01,UH02, 60=HS01, 65=AH01, 75=TH01. H5500: 32=TS01, 40=TS01, 48=TS01, 50=WH01.[ PAUL Oct 07, 2014 ]
Short answer is yes. The 65 inch 7150 model has the TH01Here are the panel types based on screen size for the 7150.H7150: 46=TS01 55= TS01 60= HH01 65=TH01 75=TS01[ JAMES Oct 07, 2014 ]
No it does not. It has a built in tuner that will receive digital over the air channels, but will need and antenna as a reception source. It also will take an input from any cable or satellite box with a component video or HDMI output. Some manufacturers make a device for instance, Silicon Dust HD Home Run tuner box that will accept a cable card from your cable company and then if you have a wireless network in your home, you can stream up to three HD digital channels through your home to say a smart television as this Samsung or devices such as P.C.s that are running Windows Media Center Edition. Just some options.[ MARK R Sep 16, 2014 ]
no,but you can buy an external it has the plug for coaxial in put[ Manuel Sep 09, 2014 ]
No, you need to connect the antenna as all TV to get air local channels.[ Roberto Sep 05, 2014 ]
