Introduction

Samsung's E7000 series is a step down from the E8000, the most expensive, feature-heavy series out of Samsung's 2012 plasma TVs. The PN60E7000 (MSRP $2529) is identical to the E8000 models in almost every way, except that it does not have voice and gesture controls.

The 60-inch E7000 is a large but flexible TV that comes equipped with 3D technology and internet capability. Its cross-bar stand and thin bezel give it a stylish appearance, to boot. Samsung's E8000 series proved excellency when we reviewed it earlier this year, and we went into our testing of the E7000 with high hopes.

We were extremely impressed with the E7000's screen performance--its viewing angle is huge, and it has great motion. While it tested with worse color accuracy than the E8000, it's still one of the best TVs to hit our labs all year.
