The UE46ES7000 is the cheapest "Smart TV" television set from Samsung that comes with a free Galaxy Tab 2 7in tablet worth around £299. The TV set is part of the 2012 series from the Korea chaebol.
It does have internet access & 3D capabilities, full HD LED backlit screen, an "A" energy rating, active 3D technology, Freeview HD and Freesat HD, a frame rate of 200Hz with software accelerated frame rate hitting 800Hz, a microdimming technology and what is actually a built-in computer consisting of a dual core processor, built-in Wi-Fi with internet apps, DLNA and Bluetooth compatibility.
The TV set also comes with two pairs of 3D glasses, three HDMI connections, one SCART * one component video connection, a USB port, AV, D-Sub, DVI and a headphone socket. Sadly there, no SD card slot and we'd prefer to have one more HDMI port. The UE46ES7000 has two 10W speakers that use DNSe sound system.
Perhaps the most intriguing feature of the TV is the interactive camera and voice control that is similar to Microsoft's Kinect. In Samsung's own words.
"A simple gesture is all it takes to access your favorite movies, sports, apps and other Smart Content. Forget the remote and use your hands to control TV functions by swiping to navigate and grabbing to select. It's as smart as it is easy. With voice control, your voice is all you need to turn on your Smart TV, navigate menus and get to your favorite Smart Content. It's a faster, easier, smarter way to control your TV. The built-in camera recognizes your face and logs you in to your profile, giving you instant access to your favorite apps, your personal Skype address book and more."
