60 in.

Not the greatest performer, but a decent price for a 60-inch set with basic online features.

Connectivity

The LG has a few more ports than the UN55C7000, primarily because it has more room to put them. Both are wifi ready and have ethernet ports, but Samsung's available online content completely dwarfs what LG is offering. The Samsung also supports DLNA while the LG does not.
