  • The 55-inch F7100 is not worth $2,499 (though it's available right now for $1,699). While Samsung's Smart Hub (and the cable connectivity therein) is probably the best smart platform on the market, it's still only a smart platform. On one hand, this TV looks great, and is fitted with all of the modern accoutrement you might want with an investment in a new display. Be warned, though: It has a few drawbacks that make me hesitate to praise it further.

    In my opinion this TV looks as good or better than the ES8000 design-wise. A good chunk of dough has also been wiped from the price, so consider this one of my top value pics for 2013/2014. The only thing it gives up from the top model are the micro dimming ultimate, though it still has micro dimming, and it has a dual core processor rather than the quad-core, and no front facing camera.


  • Within the TV industry, reviewers and hobbyists alike agree on one thing: Plasma TVs produce a better picture than LCDs. And, hand over heart, it's true. However, LCDs like the Samsung F6300 redeem the fickle technology's mass popularity: This TV's picture looks very good, hands down, and its software works with fluid precision.

    If you're in the market for a mid-sized TV, and want the bright light levels of LCD over the ink-black shadows produced by plasmas, the 46-inch F6300 is a great option.

    The UN55F6300 is strong in value in 2013 in the 60 inch market. By eliminating 3D and micro dimming and sticking with some of the features that matter most, this is a tough model to beat in the mid-level LED TV category.


  • The Samsung UN50F5500 has a lot to offer even though much has been done away with to get the price down. For the price, the picture quality is strong and the Smart Hub adds more than enough functionality to make this a great choice. Competing models include the 50LN5700 from LG, The Panasonic TC-L50E60, and the Toshiba 50L4300U. The F5500 wins out on price against all three.

    The UN55F7500 is going to get a lot of competition from LG and Panasonic in the 55 inch class. All the sets are feature heavy with smart TV suites, high refresh rates, and top notch picture quality. Samsung's F7500 stands out when it comes to picture quality and design. Contrast is impressive on this one with the best black level performance. The design of the TV it as eye catching as it is pleasing. The super thin bezel and curved stand really play into the floating image illusion.
