Recently I had the opportunity to spend some time with the brand new, 3D capable Samsung C7000 series LED LCD at Cleveland Plasma.

The C7000 has a very sleek look and extremely thin profile, though the reflective screen picked up quite a bit of glare when the room was well lit. The LED backlight extinguishes after the set gets a 0% black signal for more than a few seconds; and when that happens, the blacks are amazingly dark. Anything above a 0% signal, even on just a small area of the screen, causes the LEDs to light up and makes the blacks glow in a light controlled room. That is the main disadvantage to the C7000's edge lit LED technology compared to the local dimming LED technology of the B8500: one small area of picture content causes the entire screen's black level to glow, instead of just the area near the picture content as on the B8500. When the C7000's LEDs are lit, it is possible to see a bit of unevenness across a black screen. The corners were slightly brighter than other areas, and there were a few cloudy or milky looking areas; though overall, it did not look as severe as what I saw in last year's B7100. Whites were pretty uniform from one side of the screen to the other, but not quite perfect: I could see a very slightly cooler tone to the whites on the left side of the screen. That is probably not enough to be noticed by most home theater enthusiasts, even picky ones, unless they watch a lot of hockey.

What could bother some owners, however, is the C7000's poor off axis performance. Colors and contrast both wash out noticeably just a couple of feet from dead center. My wife commented that, even though she could see a large shift in the picture when moving to the opposite side of the couch, once she viewed it for a few minutes it was no longer distracting. On the other hand, maybe there's a way to use this on date night. After all, you don't want her to suffer through an entire movie with washed out colors; if you snuggle close, you'll both be in the sweet spot...

I started the calibration by taking measurements of how the C7000 performed in it's most accurate picture preset, movie mode. The results are shown in attachment 1.

There are some very important additions to the C7000's picture adjustments in movie mode. These extra controls allow an incredible amount of fine tuning. The first new adjustment I ran across in the advanced menu was "shadow detail", in addition to the more familiar "gamma" adjustment. This control can be used to boost dark objects without making the overall image look washed out, which was one weakness of last year's model.

"Expert pattern" engaged some useful test patterns, though that will not be too exciting to those who already own a good test disc.

"RGB only mode" provided color isolation, which is a much more accurate way to set the color adjustments than using the colored filters supplied with test discs.

But the control that will really light the flame of your hidden calibrator side is the all new for Samsung 10 point white balance/gamma adjustment. It works in conjunction with the more familiar white balance cuts and gains. After calibrating gamma, shadow detail, brightness, contrast, and conventional white balance adjustments, this control can be used with calibration gear to iron out color emphasis at certain brightness levels and correct the brightness ratio as the set transitions from dark to bright images. The 10 point adjustment worked pretty well; it was less quirky and more predictable than LG's 10 point adjustment, but it's steps were too coarse at the lower adjustment points. At positions 1 through 3, one click of the adjustment would cause too large of a shift in actual output, leaving some unevenness in the low end of the grayscale tracking. But it was still a huge help; the 10 step adjustment combined with the shadow detail control to give much better visibility in dark scenes than I have ever seen from a Samsung flat panel.

There were full CMS adjustments available when "custom" was selected for color space. These adjustments work properly and are a model the rest of the industry would be well served to study.

There were also selections for "LED Motion Plus" and fine tuning for the 240Hz Clear Motion, which I felt could give the right balance between smooth panning and the despised soap opera look.

The C7000 has special processing to display regular program material in 3D. I did not get to test this feature because the glasses were not available, though I did experiment a bit and found that when the 3D mode was engaged, the movie mode was unavailable. This means that when watching in 3D, the colors and overall calibration of the image will not be as accurate.

After calibrating all of the C7000's advanced picture adjustments with CalMAN Pro software combined with Chroma5 and Eye One Pro meters (measurements shown in attachment 2), I settled down to watch some familiar Blu Ray 1080P/24 demo material in a dark room. Things looked very impressive right from the start. Contrast was great, with lots of "pop" and impact in brighter scenes. Colors looked fairly natural and vibrant, though I did feel that skin tones looked a tiny bit purplish. That was totally eliminated with a slight tweak to the red CMS adjustment and measurement verification. With the final tweak performed, the C7000 made a tremendous impression. The image was as smooth and natural as I have ever seen, and colors were true and rich. The image had great depth, without even getting into the 3D processing. Contrast was good, but not as good as on a local dimming LED model like the B8500 or a Kuro plasma. The measured ANSI contrast ratio of 2220:1 puts it in the same league as the Sharp 700un, which is very good for an LCD. Shadow detail was superb, besting the B8500 by a significant degree. Compared to a Pioneer 9G Elite Kuro, which I feel is the best flat panel display I have seen, the image was smoother, with very slightly richer colors, but poorer contrast and less pop in dark scenes.

The C7000, like some other Samsung displays, does not seem to handle RGB colorspace via HDMI correctly. Color decoding and gamut measured significantly different (poorer) when I switched from YCbCr to RGB via HDMI. That could be an issue with certain pattern generators, video game consoles, or DVI based sources. Attachment 3 is the result; the only difference between it and attachment 2 is that the pattern generator was changed to one that was set to output RGB colorspace rather than YCbCr.

I thought I saw occasional, very brief moments of motion blur; but, like the LG LH90, it was not enough to be distracting to me. Likewise, with test patterns and program guides, the "flashlighting" of the LED backlight can draw attention to itself; but with regular program material, I never noticed any pumping or fluctuation.

The C7000 is a further refinement of the B7000, with some significant new adjustments and the addition of the all new 3D capability. Calibrate it thoroughly, watch it on axis, and tilt it down if it's mounted high. It has more than enough light output to cope with bright rooms, though be careful to position it to minimize glare.

While I still prefer local dimming LED technology to edgelit LED technology, the C7000 is a fantastic set and a calibrator's dream.

Follow up: Recently, I calibrated a UN55C7000 and got to check out the 3D performance with the glasses. I was surprised and happy to find that the set allowed me to choose movie mode while in 3D mode, and it had a completely independent memory for 3D movie mode as opposed to regular movie mode. It did require totally different settings in 3D movie mode; contrast, white balance, and backlight all ended up being significantly different.
I checked out an actual 3D Blu Ray (played on a 3D capable Samsung BD player) as well as my normal demo material with the 3D processing engaged. Most of my viewing was before calibration, though I checked out the 3D action after calibration as well.
I was still able to see a distinct shadow around objects even after powering on the 3D glasses. It was as if the glasses reduced the shadow by 70%, but a distracting 30% remained. With the true 3D movie, I did see a good 3D effect, though I find animation to be difficult to judge picture quality with. It was an interesting experience, though the shadow was distracting. I felt that the glasses distorted things in unexpected ways; geometry seemed slightly wavy (probably due to slight imperfections in the glasses' lens surface).
With my standard 2D demo material converted to 3D, I was able to turn down the 3D processing so the shadow was much less apparent. However, the overall 3D effect was significantly reduced also, as expected. There was still enough effect to be noticeable and add a slight sense of 3D depth, though. At times I had the sensation of the middle of the screen being pulled back from me; it was as if someone had attached a wad of silly putty to the center of the screen, then pulled that ball of putty back towards the back wall. Overall, fun and interesting, but in no way realistic or lifelike. It's hard to say just how much I would use the 3D if I owned this set. I probably would not use it at all for normal viewing except to play around with. I would probably not enjoy real 3D movies as much as I would hope, because of the shadow and unrealistic effects of the glasses, though it would still be fun to experience.
On this set, I also noticed a potential problem with the 10 point white balance/gamma adjustment. It works best with high contrast settings; near contrast settings of 100, the points are lined up properly and have minimal interaction. However, when I tried to reduce contrast to the low 90's to eliminate whiter-than-white color shift, the 10 point system became slightly displaced, making calibration more difficult and leading to too much improper interaction. My conclusion was that with a contrast setting near 100%, the 10 point worked perfectly. At settings in the mid 90's, it worked pretty well, but with some displacement and more interaction. With settings in the lower 90's or lower, the displacement became unacceptable.

Great write up. Very informative.

Do you think the C8000 will be closer to the 8500?

Don't know much about the C8000 yet. Chris and I have some Panny plasma reviews planned. Beyond that I can't say for sure, but it would be great to review a Sony.

Thanks for the excellent analysis Chad - Good to see you back.

BTW on the C8000 Model it's listed as having "Pinpoint Dimming" that the C7000 lacks. Are you familiar with this at all? I read on a separate Forum that if it can truly do Pinpoint that would be an incredible small area and a positive achievement. Of course the C8000 also gets sound pumped up and 240Hz.

Will be interesting to see an evaluation of the Pinpoint Dimming as Samsung calls it. Thanks again!

A review an Asia made this statement:

"The LED-edgelit UE46C8000X can deliver deep blacks and fluid pictures, thanks to its newly developed pinpoint dimming and motion-enhancement engines. Although details are sketchy, we were told the former utilizes thousands of micro shutters inside the light guide plate to provide finer backlighting.

For movie buffs, the UE46C8000X is one of the first HDTVs to support both Dolby Digital Plus and DTS sound. What's more, there're also new additions such as Dolby Pulse designed to enhance broadcast audio quality and an SRS TheaterSound virtual surround sound engine. "

Thanks for the the great review and information Chad! We appreciate you taking the time.

As others have stated, I'm also interested in the C8000's "pinpoint" dimming and performance. If you have the opportunity to check one of them out once available, we'd love to hear about it.

Chad whats with the new points and why has B8500 points had such inflation vs. others? LH90 really 3 points better picture than B8500? Hard to believe with inferior panel/ motion processing/ scaler and lesser amount of LED zones.

Well i will say one.Im not a LED guy but a plasma guy.I looked at the new C7000 at the store along with C6500 and i must say im impressed.We have the B8000 in the middle.Alli i can say for the 8000 now is tisk tisk

The only thing im sceptical of is that the C7000 has Mini jacks ro Female RCA for composite/component input? Id say this affects tghe picture some but the PQ is still nice.

I'm planning to get a un46c7000 in May. I have a few questions about it for those that have it or have seen it:

1. From what I understand the C7000 has a smart LED feature in its menu. I know that on the B8500 and the C8000, smart led is for local dimming. Does anyone know what this feature does on the C7000?

2. I plan to use my C7000 for games and movies, does this TV still have bad input lag?

3. How does the C7000 fare in PQ (black levels,colors) versus the B7000 and B8000?

4. Samsung moved the LEDs to the top and bottom, does this improve clouding, flshlighting, and overall PQ

5. This is not a real problem but, I kinda liked the blue light on the B8000 does any part of the C7000 glow? I thought for sure the touch buttons on the TV glow.

6. Also does the stand still swivel?

I saw the c6500 next to a c8000 (so the salesman said - probably a c7000) in a big box store today in Raleigh. They were just being put on the floor. After setup, or what they call setup, I watched for a while and quickly noticed flashlighting in the corners of BOTH sets in dark scenes, plus the 'c8000' had clouding that was clearly visible, even in the bright store settings. Very disappointing. I pointed it out to the salesman who stated, "Well, that's a characteristic of edge-lit technology." I didn't even bother to reply. I was waiting for these new sets to drop, since my old LED was riddled with the same problems. Not sure what to do now...

I really didn't think it was an 8000 either, but it was NOT silver. It had a steel edge surrounding the black bezel, and it didn't have the ugly bird feet. It had a flat stand and a very nice steel (and somewhat heavy) remote.

Must come down to individual sets, because I didn't see any of that.
And it was the 7000, like I said in my other post they don't even have the 8000 in their system yet, and no idea of release date. By the way they were using Component, not HDMI for their connection.

I just wanted to thank Chad B for the review. I sure do enjoy hearing about the new technology as it starts hitting the floor
