Introduction

The Samsung UN55ES7500 (MSRP $3,379) is the model right below Sammy’s flagship, the ES8000. What’s the difference between the ES7500 and the ES8000? About 500. Math jokes aside, there isn’t a whole lot that separates the ES7500 from its big brother. The ES7500 comes with all of the goodies that the flagship has, including voice and motion controls, the Smart Touch Remote, and Samsung’s excellent smart TV platform. As far as differences are concerned, at least according to Samsung, the base has been changed, the micro dimming supposedly isn’t as good as the ES8000, and it has slightly less powerful motion processing.

Testing will often tell a different story and when we ran the numbers, we found the two TVs were very similar but there were a few noticeable differences. The power consumption was higher in the ES7500, the contrast wasn't as good, and the viewing angle was worse. Every other great feature that the ES8000 has is present on the ES7500. For a TV that costs almost $400 less than the flagship model, we think the UN55ES7500 delivers.
