The UE40B7000 is also known as the Samsung UE40B7000WW, but is the exact same model. Now that we have that sorted, you will be glad to know that the 40-inch Samsung UE40B7000 is one of the best looking and best performing LCD HDTV on the market today, and not only that, it comes at a reasonable price too, making it a great buy.

The 40-inch LCD HDTV is one of the thinest on the market, at just over 1-inch thick, and it features all of the requered parts in the HDTV, rather than having then in a seperate box like some HDTVs. It achieves this impressive slimness by the use of edge lit LEDs to light up the screen, rather than a standard backlit. As well as making the Samsung UE40B7000 very slim, it also provides higher contrasts and uses less power. Tests showed that it uses between 100W and 130W, much less than a standard HDTV.
