Samsung UN55C7000 55-inch 3D LCD HDTV Review

Samsung UN55C7000 55-inch 3D LCD HDTV Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: If you're a technology geek it's hard not to get excited the first time you hear about 3D HDTV. It's one of those amazing Jetsons-esque technologies that seems like we'd never quite get to, along with hover cars and robot butlers. PCSTATS cuts through the marketing hype and tells you if the 3D Samsung UN55C7000 55-inch HDTV is worth it.

Active Shutter 3D Glasses

Bundled with the UN55C7000 are a set of Samsung's 3D active shutter glasses, which are the only way to take advantage of Samsung's 3D technology. The rechargable glasses use electricity to polarize each liquid crystal lens at a rate of 120Hz.

The included glasses are big enough to fit an adult-size head (even on my enormous noggin, and I have difficulty trying on most hats), and can also fit over most pairs of glasses without issue. They're actually fairly comfortable to simply have on your head, even for extended periods of time. Most importantly they don't hurt the ears any more than a normal set of glasses would.

The glasses themselves are activated using a tiny switch, which turns on the polarization effect. Once the glasses are on you'll notice that the room immediately seems a bit dimmer, and the colour tint of the glasses turns from a warm yellow-y tone to a cooler blue.

In the center of the 3D shutter glasses is an infrared sensor that syncs the shutter glasses with the Samsung UN55C7000, allowing the polarization of the glasses to match up with the 3D refresh rate of the display.

Having 3D shutter glasses that can transmit infrared beams (to a distance of 20 feet from the TV) is perhaps the closest you'll ever get to becoming the X-men's Cyclops (or in this case his cousin, Biclops).

Samsung sells different types of 3D shutter glasses that are compatible with its 3D HDTV sets. This particular model, the SSG-2200AR, uses a rechargeable battery which has enough capacity to last through a full length movie, and are available for $200 each.

The internal 3.7v Li-polymer battery in the shutter glasses can be recharged from your PC, using a USB cable with a propietary tip. Make sure not to lose that cable, without it your $200 3D glasses will quickly become useless. Battery life is pegged at 30 hours.
