The newest televisions from Samsung are now available for preorder.
Samsung had some amazing sets on display at CES this year. Their new LED backlit LCDs are slick, slim, and crystal clear. The 7000 series is at the entry level of the newest sets. It doesn’t come with – though it’s compatible with – the slick new touchscreen remote. It’s the most baseline of the new TVs, if you can call a 3D cable LED backlit set baseline.
If you’re looking for a thin set, Samsung’s got you covered. Their 7000 series measures a mere inch deep when used without the stand.
You’re getting a 1080p resolution of course, and a 240Hz refresh rate, making it prime for 3D entertainment. Active 3D glasses, surprisingly, will be sold separately. Of course, that only reinforces Samsung’s stance that just because these TVs are 3D capable doesn’t mean they’re only for 3D use.
The 7000 series also gives you access to Samsung’s impressive lineup of web apps. Internet@TV brings Blockbuster, YouTube, Amazon and Netflix to the party, as well as social networking, internet radio and even Twitter.
Though there are three models in the series, only two appear on Amazon at the moment. The 46” and 55” sets are both available for preorder now. The smaller of the two (the UN46C7000) is up for $2,599 while the UN55C7000 runs $3,299.
