Samsung's new Series 7 LED TVs ($3,000-$4,000) represent the company's focus on three areas: picture quality, design, and environmental impact. Featuring deep contrast, true-to-life color reproduction, and an incredible range of brightness without compromising clarity, these TVs represent the most advanced HDTV technology available using no paint spray, no mercury, and 40% less power. Measuring only 1.2-inches deep, these are also some of the slimmest HDTVs available. Perfect for mounting on the wall, the screen's soft, square edges feature a touch of amber, creating a majestic frame around the image, like a work of art. Best of all, you can use the Series 7 to access data on your USB cameras and drives, or connect to the Internet and use built-in widgets to check out Flickr, get stock or weather updates, and link to PCs to access your local media.
