Everything we said in the Samsung ES6710 review holds true for this model—the only thing that's different is the screen size!
Sometimes manufacturers fit the different sized models of a given television with panels from different sources. In such cases, our comments are only valid for a specific size of a given TV, fitted with the panel that we originally tested. Contrast, black levels, colour fidelity and ghosting are all subject to change from one panel to another. When different panels are used, we'll be sure to let you know about it!
Manufacturers who do use the same panel in all the various sized TVs sold under a given model number can expect the same results across the whole range. The only factor that could be prone to slight variation is the brightness, producing a slightly different contrast. However, according to our own tests, and assurances from manufacturers, the results of one TV can accurately be applied to other sized models in the series when the same panel is used.
- Accurate colours: average Delta E = 3.3
- High contrast: 2500:1
- Good 3D picture quality
- Effective motion interpolation
- Hardly any clouding on the model we tested
- Media player supports loads of video file formats
- Glossy screen prone to reflections
- Tight viewing angles
The Samsung ES6710 has all the advantages of the ES6300 while also correcting its major fault. It therefore displays accurate onscreen colours, as well as offering near-perfect 3D viewing and high contrast. Picky home movie buffs who like to watch films in pitch-darkness will no doubt prefer the ES7000 for its deeper blacks.
