3 Reasons Against

A Bit Expensive

Several Samsung UE55D7000 reviewers who bought the product thought it was not cheap. Cnet.com wrote on CNET.com five years ago “Earlier this year we called Samsung's most expensive plasma TV”. Cnet.com also wrote “The "Best overall TV of 2011 (so far)." Now that we've tested its less expensive brother”. Avhub.com.au said “The relatively expensive PN 7000 cannot produce full shadow detail or proper 1080 24 cadence without sacrificing some black-level performance”.

One person who purchased the product reckoned that it was not good value for money. Expert website Avforums.com mentioned “We've already had extensive hands on with the, more costly, UE-40D8000 and overall we were left impressed”.

One Samsung UE55D7000 owner who purchased it considered that it was not a bargain for the price. Expert review site Itp.net mentioned in their review of the Samsung UE55D7000 “While the UA55D7000LR isn’t perfect, its flaws are far from being deal breakers” .

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The UE55D7000 does not have a built-in camera, although keep in mind that most of the other large TVs that were launched more than two years ago also do not have a built-in camera.

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

Most large TVs that were released around the same time as the UE55D7000 do not feature OLED technology. The UE55D7000 is no exception to this as it too does not feature OLED technology.

We compared all the other TVs which also feature OLED technology to this TV and we think the 55EC930[pl_2442859_price], or the 55EA980[pl_2042821_price] both from LG which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
