The UN55C5000 is a high-end HDTV from Samsung's 5 series. It shares similar features to an HDTV from Samsung's 6 series, the UA65C6500. Both HDTVs use AllShare technology (which lets the user transfer media from a PC or mobile device to their TV), both have an ultra clear panel (eliminates reflection), and both use Anynet+ technology (lets the user remotely control HDMI devices). However, the UN65C6500 has more features than the UN55C5000, including Internet@TV technology (which allows internet browsing through a television). It also has a larger screen (65" versus 55"). The UN55C5000 features 3D compatibility, which, when paired with Samsung 3D glasses, will add an entire other dimension to entertainment. It also ensures compatibility with the latest 3D movies and games. It also features a mega dynamic contrast ratio of 3 000 000:1 provides better picture quality. It does this by combining deep blacks and bright whites. This lets color look more vivid, and greatly enhanced. However, this HDTV is a 60Hz set which is weaker to a number of TV sees that use 120/240Hz, which gives the user a smoother image.
