The picture quality of the Samsung UN55H7150 is excellent as far as flat panel 1080p LED TVs go. We were pleased to see the split screen Smart TV feature on this model—a step above the H6450 series—that allows for simultaneous TV watching and web browsing, so you can tweet or skype your friends as you watch your favorite program. We were also amazed by the light flow through, thanks to the LED backlight. We recommend an 80% setting on the LED backlight to keep the screen uniform while maintaining enough brightness. Another aspect we liked on this model was the Active 3D viewing quality. We have yet to find more comfortable 3D glasses than the ones for this one. Dual View is another great feature, allowing you to watch two programs at the same time—or toggle between the two easily.
