The Samsung KS7000 is the maximum exponent of Samsung's upper-middle range with a flat panel . The new Korean TV offers a minimalist design and an excellent set of technologies for a unique viewing experience. SUHD resolution with Quantum Dot Color , HDR1000 technology for images more faithful to reality, Ultra Black to minimize reflection on the screen, Precision Black to improve contrast, Auto Depth Enhancerto improve depth ... All aimed at achieving great image quality in a panel intended for users who do not want curves. Let's thoroughly review the features of Samsung's new KS7000 .
Samsung has wanted to differentiate this year the 7 Series from the higher-end models, the 8 and 9 series . Just as in the higher ranges we saw that the Koreans had opted for a large silver Y-shaped base, the Samsung KS7000 is characterized by a much more minimalist design. The television is practically all screen, with almost invisible frames. Only at the bottom is where we see a somewhat thicker silver frame. To support the Samsung KS7000 , the company has chosen to attach a pair of small metallic feet to the ends .
As we mentioned at the beginning, the KS7000 series is designed for users who do not like curves, since the panel is completely flat . If we ignore the legs, the TV has a thickness of only 4.43 centimeters . The rear is practically "clean" of connections thanks to the One Connect system , an external connection box that Samsung uses in its latest televisions. This box has the advantage that in the event that the connectors are updated for the 4K standard, we will not have to change the entire television to enjoy the latest. In addition, it is more convenient to access all ports.
The new Samsung KS7000 is offered in three screen diagonals: 49, 55 and 65 inches . In terms of connectivity, we have 4 HDMI ports , 3 USB ports , an Ethernet port , an optical digital audio output and integrated WiFi .
Samsung has extended nano crystal technology to the lower end this year, so the new KS7000 series incorporates a 10-bit panel with a SUHD resolution of 3,840 í— 2,160 pixels and Quantum Dot Color technology . This is a really important leap in quality compared to last year's 7 series. In addition to Quantum Dot Color technology , which offers sharper and more realistic colors, the Samsung KS7000 also incorporates HDR1000. The result, deep blacks and more vivid colors. And precisely to help with the blacks, the biggest problem of LED panels, SamsungIt has incorporated Precision Black technology , which improves contrast to offer more realistic images.
In addition to trying to achieve vivid colors and deep blacks, the Korean company has equipped the Samsung KS7000 with Auto Depth Enhancer technology , which applies different levels of contrast to different areas of the screen, achieving a greater sense of depth. And, considering that reflections are often a big problem in LED panels, the KS7000 also offers Ultra Black , a technology that reduces reflections on the screen by increasing the absorption of light from the panel.
Although the latest televisions from most companies have already opted for 4K resolution , the harsh reality is that much of the content we see is broadcast at much lower resolutions. Therefore, the Samsung KS7000 offers the SUHD Remastering Engine scaling engine to try to make the best possible view of lower quality emissions.
Today to enjoy good sound it is almost essential to accompany the television with a sound bar or a 5.1 audio system. But let's face it, we don't always want or can turn on the audio equipment to watch TV. Therefore, manufacturers are trying to improve the sound of their increasingly flat televisions somewhat. The Samsung KS7000 incorporates a 2.1 sound system that offers a total power of 40W . Regarding sound formats, the television is compatible with Dolby Digital Plus and incorporates a DTS Codec . Other supported features are Multiroom Link and TV SoundConnect , as well as the ability to connect headphonesBluetooth directly to the TV.
A the same as the other models, the new KS7000 of Samsung incorporates the new version of Tizen OS . In this version, the main screen, called Smart Hub , has been modified to achieve faster and easier access to the most common applications, most viewed programs or even games. And is that Samsung has an interesting agreement with PlayStation that allows you to offer some PS3 games in streaming to be able to play them directly from the television.
The Samsung KS7000 also incorporates the premium remote that will allow us to operate the TV using a pointer, moving the controller in the air.
The Samsung KS7000 is an upper-mid-range television that offers image enhancement technologies worthy of the highest ranges of any manufacturer. The new Series 7 of 2016 incorporates the 10-bit panels with SUHD resolution and Quantum Dot Color technology , which last year were reserved for the most cutting- edge televisions. On the other hand, the Koreans have equipped the Samsung KS7000 with all possible technologies to achieve the best image quality: HDR1000 , Ultra Black , Precision Black and Auto Depth Enhancer . All this governed by an operating systemTizen OS that arrives renewed.
The only but that we could put is that it is only offered in 49 and 55 inches . If any user is looking for a larger flat panel TV, they will have to go to the KS8000 series .
