Chris and Doug from the AVS Forum calibrated and reviewed the Samsung UN55B7100 and said, On calibrating the movie mode “the blacks went from typical LCD quality to, IMO, Pioneer 8G Kuro quality. The cloudy spots were much less apparent and no longer a problem in most situations”

The look was stunning! The UN55B7100 has tons of “pop”, and it has beautiful color. It looks very crisp and detailed. Since it came out of black slowly, dark objects are just a bit too dark, but that’s very forgivable considering how great it looks overall.

The Samsung UN55B7100 also features a built-in HDTV tuner, Wide 178° viewing angles, 4 ms response time, 2x USB inputs, 4x HDMI 1.3, and PC VGA inputs.
