PRODUCT PICTORIAL & WALKTHROUGH (cont'd)
Now when you are checking out this extensive rear connection panel, remember that we already covered the side panel. That brings the amount of HDMI connections to three which should cover anyone's HD home theater system needs. As you can see, you have your standard VIVO connections, your PC hookups along with your legacy standard coaxial cable TV/ Antenna connections. Whatever you want to hookup, this TV is ready to go. This TV is also great for hooking up your 1080p capable Xbox 360 or your PS3. With Game Mode enabled in the menu, you can enjoy ghost free flawless gaming.
The TV's base allows the user to swing the monitor approximated 10-20 degrees to the right and left. Although it isn't very big, the base is incredibly stable and will require some serious effort to knock this TV down. Even when it is perched on my center channel speaker, this TV is rock solid stable. Now if Samsung would only create an incorporated center speaker stand into their TV design I would be perfectly setup. ;)
Now this is a feature I discovered lately which I absolutely love. Samsung's Wiselink capability allows the user to use their large TV for other uses other than your standard TV tasks.
All you need is a USB2.0 thumbdrive and you can load it up with as many JPEG photos and pictures along with any MP3 songs and you have yourself an interesting presentation tool. All you do is connect the thumbdrive to the side Wiselink connection, press the Wiselink button on the remote control and you are met with the display above.
Once you have entered that, you can choose whether you want to view your photos or listen to your music. In this first example i will want to view some photos I took while in Paris, France a couple years ago.
And there you have it, all your photos neatly thumbnailed for your viewing pleasure. Make sure they are all oriented properly seeing your won't be able to rotate them during viewing. You can also setup an automated slideshow with background music.
Or if you are like me, you can view them one at a time and control the photo progression through the remote control arrow keypad. It turns this TV into an excellent display for showing photos to guests. But there is another use as well.
