Samsung Series 7 LCD: LN40A750T, LN46A750T and LN52A750T

edited from CES press release

Samsung displayed its LCD HDTV Series 6 and 7 at CES

Samsung has also incorporated networking and easy connection capability in response to consumer needs. In particular, up-to-the-minute access to weather, news, sports and stock information is just a cable and a click away through the HDTV’s Ethernet port and new InfoLink™ RSS service. Designed to be the entertainment hub in the home, the Series 6 and 7 LCD HDTVs enable consumers to access a wide range of digital and multimedia devices—such as MP3 players, camcorders, and PCs—and have their contents displayed, managed and played through the HDTV.

Series 7 Full HD LCD TV

Building on the superior technologies and features found in the Series 6, the Series 7 takes networking and multimedia management to a whole new level. Consumers can easily enjoy MPEG and JPEG files stored on external devices by connecting through a side-mounted USB 2.0, turning their LCD into a full-scale home viewing gallery, or connect their MP3 players for a dynamic audio experience.

Additionally, the Series 7 features internal flash memory loaded with premium content to enjoy right out of the box, as well as an integrated woofer for an enhanced audio experience.

The 750 LCD HDTVs will be available in May in the following sizes: 40-inches, 46-inches and 52-inches. (Model numbers LN40A750T, LN46A750T and LN52A750T).

mac dude,
If my experiences with Samsung for support are typical, you may want to consider returning your tv for a different brand. I've bought the FP-T5084 plasma in January and discovered a problem after I couldn't return it to the store i bought it from. While I'm happy with the picture, I can't use the Just Scan setting because of a known issue. I've been lied to, and hung up on so many times that I've lost track. The one that took the cake was the last supposed manager. She told me that my TV there was nothing wrong with my TV, and they would not be sending out a tech. I haven't given up my fight, but this isn't the type of service anyone should receive.

Hope you have better luck if you decide to keep yours.

Why would you need flash in a TV, what on earth could it possibly come with.

Is it for transfer images, movies clips etc to the TV so they can be viewed ?

I'm going to check these TV's out, the sizes sound great (46 inch), the price is
right and I'm getting our main level entertainment unit torn out to allow a bigger flat
screen soon.

Does the 750 version come with the red tint? Also I have heard about the 650 series resseting itself. Does this happen with the 750?

I looked at the 52 750 at FS yesterday. Great picture! They were running a BD demo disc. Really impressive! Good colour, blacks good. Fairly black bars top & bottom wide a cinema wide BD.
Not only does it have a red pinstrip around the edge, its got a clear edge around the ouside of that.
I couldn't get my head around 4000 bucks, Certainly looks like a 3000 TV to me.
But worse than that my wife flat out, said NO. Doesn't like the big glossy/red pinstripe/clear glass border.

We'll continue our search elswhere....

Samsung TV, Pio-Elite AVR, OppoBD, Wharfedale Speakers, Kicker/Crown Subs, DB-4e OTA:)

They have the 7 series at Futreshop, very nice, but I'd settle for the 550 for bang for the buck factor (plus I'm not too keen on the red trim as well.)

I bought my 750 at Future Shop, the red tint does not bother me at all, looks good when the set is off and I never notice it when watching. Picture is very good on this set.

I just want a TV to watch TV and play movies. The 650 is plenty enuf TV for me and cheaper. Here's Consumer Reports on it:
"Samsung LN52A650
Type: LCD TVs
52-inch models
Price as tested:
$2200
Overall score: 83 [out of 100]
This top-rated 52-inch 1080p model from Samsung is one of the best TVs we've ever tested. It has excellent picture quality across the board, and was one of the few tested models with excellent sound."

Help me to decide: the Samsung 52" A750 and Samsung 58" PN58A550

In my local shop, I find out that the Samsung 52" A750 and Samsung 58" PN58A550 are at the same price. Which model should I choose? I will put it in my living room, I will use if for movie 30%, HDTV 30% and ps3 game 40%. There are 11 feet distance between my sofa and the TV stand. Of course, I do prefer a bigger tv, but I am worry about the quality of picture, the heat from plasma, and the burn-in problem for A550. Is 52" tv too small for my room setting? Please advise. Thank you

To be honest, from my experience, stay away from Samsung if you're the type of individual that needs the product to be 'perfect'. I'm on my 3rd Samsung, I had one 850 that had a bezel with a manufacturing defect, Samsung told me to replace the TV since it was within 30 days, they wouldn't come out and replace the bezel. TV number two had audio issues, so I dumped the 850 and tried a 750. Now this is probably going back as it's clipping below video black, which it shouldn't be as other 750's (my friend has one) do not do this. I've tried calibrating it and every setting out there, but it's not working. My recommendation is to try another brand, although the Samsung TVs have an amazing picture, their QC is pretty bad so you may have to go through a lot of trouble to get a good set.
