Just when you thought you've seen the best from Samsung they go ahead and up the ante again. Today we have their monster 46-inch Series 7 LED TV that offers all the features of the Series 6, plus a couple more like internet access, two USB ports instead of one and the ability to sync PC to the TV to wirelessly stream files.
The build and design of the TV pretty much remains the same; solid, classy and breathtaking. The Touch of Color is embedded only at the borders this time giving the TV a darker, menacing look. Before we go exploring the rest of it let's look at the key differences between the Series 6 and 7 TVs. Samsung is charging a premium for the Series 7, so it's important to see what you're getting for that extra 40K.
Exclusive features of Series 7
Media Play - DLNA
2 USB ports
1GB in-built memory
Edge-Lit LED Backlight
The first and most striking feature is the provision of a LAN jack, which means you can connect to the Internet to view YouTube through the built-in widget or simply download updates and other content from Samsung. You can do this wirelessly but you'll need a Samsung WiFi adapter that's sold separately. The 1GB built-in memory allows you to store more frequently accessed files, so you don't have to plug in a pen drive every time.
DLNA is essentially a software that lets you sync your PC to the TV, so you can browse your photo, music and movie collection directly on the TV without having to dump it into a portable drive. You also get an extra USB port and this time DivX is supported which is nothing ground breaking and should have been present in the Series 6 as well. The last little difference is in the LED backlighting, which is edge-lit like the Sony ZX series. The Series 6 Samsung LED had a direct backlit LED design. We'll explore this in greater detail later but first let's check out the bundle.
