Everything we said in the Samsung UE40ES70000 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.

The Samsung ES7000 is a good TV. If, like us, you're not fussed about the motion and voice control systems, the ES6300 is a more affordable alternative that offers similar performances. Pickier users will no doubt prefer the slightly more accurate colours and marginally deeper blacks in this model, but the difference in quality is very slight.
