2011 Samsung Models
Samsung's 8000 series 3D LED TVs return for 2011 with the D8000 series, a new slimmer look and expanded features over last years model. The Smart Hub Internet TV is a particular standout with access to many applications on the app store as well as streaming media and a full web browser.
The D7000 is only a slight step step from the D8000 with a different look and most of the same features as the 8000 at less of a price. It does lack the web browser that's built into the 8000 but still has access to the App Store and many streaming content providers.
The D6400 represents the entry level in Samsung 3D LED LCD TVs, don't let the entry level tag throw you, this TV is packed with many top of the line features such as Smart TV internet capability and built in WiFi.
The 46" Samsung 46D6300 series has many of the same features of the D6000 series. This is a competitively priced TV without a few of the best features but still has ALLShare and streaming media services through that service. Value is one of the focus points of this TV.

Samsung 46" UN46D6000
The 46 inch UN46D6000 LED backlit LCD TV has a great ultra clear coat screen and fine HD viewing characteristics. It will also bring some very good value to those that do not care about having 3D viewing capability. The 6000 line is considered an entry level LED television and provides good bang for the buck in the LED market. The TV has many extras in its 46" viewable area casing, however with a Clear Coat screen that helps absorb ambient room light. We've been big fans of clear coat screens lately over non-clear coat filters that show a lot more glare. Other extras include Samsung's Connect Share and AnyNet+ features. The TV is not 3D ready.
