This TV has an excellent picture, period. If your main criteria for a TV is the picture then I don't think you can go wrong with this TV. Now some background... Out of the box, news shows were unwatchable while movies and most other programming were great. Just about every news show was overly bright and faces so much so it was unwatchable as far as I was concerned. But two simple adjustments fixed it. Using the Natural setting I dialed back Brightness from 45 to 35 and Color from 52 to 40. Now there are a zillion other controls and the picture can be tweaked endlessly. But those two probably made 90% of the diference with 10% of the effort. You will want to adjust the settings to your preference but Color and Brightness is definitely the place to start. Pros: - Great picture - Great use of the overall dimension. The overall size is a bit smaller than our previos 40 inch Samsung. But the outer bezel is so narow that the it's mostly screen. So we have a 46 inch TV in a 40 inch space as far as I'm concerned. -Desent sound. The speakers are on the back and reflect against the rear wall giving a pretty full sound. But for full sound we use our external surround system. - Easy setup - Stylish look. Cons: - I would have liked RCA audio outputs. But there are none. - Universal remote operation with DIsh Network is lame. Missing is single button access to the Guide.
SIMPLY WELL DEFINED5/7/2012
I had a 2004 Sony 60" KDF-60X955 DLP TV. The TV was on last leg about one year ago when I started to see blue color at the lower right hand corner of the screen. I was looking at Samsung UN55-C8000 since last Xmas. I hestitated to buy it back then because of the hefty price tag. When UN55-D7000 first came out, I bought it from Amazon.com. I love the slim 0.5" frame and 1.2" depth of the TV. Next, I was looking at contrast ratio. I saw it somewhere that the TV has 16 MM: 1 contrast ratio. The D8000 has 25MM : 1. The sales guy from bestbuy said that Samsung dropped the contrast ratio specification this year because it is so high that they quoted the ratio as infinity. This is another reason I picked the D7000 over the C - series. I didn't buy the D8000 series because it costs $800 more than D7000 and I don't think I can notice the difference. Another reason I bought this TV is that the D series is internet ready without a dongle while the C - series needs an external dongle. The apps are fairly comprehensive. You definitely need the QWERTY control to type things it. I am still waiting for my QWERTY keyboard to show up. I don't understand why Samsung did not include it in the TV packet. It needs to be ordered separately (for free) via internet or phone with the registration code that comes with the TV. After 2 weeks of use, the HD picture quality is simply amazing - a million times better than my KDF-60X955 DLP TV. The SD picture quality is many times better than my old TV. I like this TV.
