There are two ways to connect your PC or Mac to your Samsung TV for monitor functionality: HDMI to HDMI or HDMI to VGA/DVI/Displayport.
That said, the Samsung TVs do not offer wireless or networked monitor capabilities.
Please note, in the computer's operating system, you will need to set the display settings to either clone or extended view and set the computer’s resolution to match that of the maximum resolution of the TV in order to view your computer’s desktop on the TV.

If your computer offers HDMI out, I would highly suggest using this connection, since it is a basic plug-n-play connection (meaning almost no adjustment is needed on the TV or PC).

HDMI to VGA/DVI/Displayport is almost the same as straight HDMI, but in this case, you will want to connect the DVI end of the cable to the computer (if available) and the HDMI into the TV. This is also considered a plug-n-play connection.

Unless otherwise specified by your computer manufacturer, you will need to connect the computer's audio to the TV with a separate cable (3.5mm jack cable from the PC’s audio output to the TV’s DVI/HDMI Audio input), since most computers do not support audio over HDMI, VGA or DVI.

Thank you for the opportunity to assist you,

Actually, since the ES7500 and ES8000 offer built-in WiFi, the wireless dongles (Linkstick) will not be needed for wireless connectivity.

As a matter of fact, the UN55ES8000 should be able to read files from a 4TB external HDD. However, the following considerations should be met for proper use (including the provided image):

In order to access content from a USB device, first connect the device to the USB port on the TV. Then set the device to Mass Storage mode (if available). If the device is compatible with the TV, it should allow for media playback. The device in question must meet all of the following requirements:

1. It must offer a Mass Storage Mode (or already be in a mass storage mode setting like a thumbdrive)
2. It must be formatted in a FAT16, FAT32 or NTFS file system
3. It must not contain any DRM content. DRM content is not supported by the Samsung TVs

Please refer to your device’s manual for more information on connecting it to another device.

All of the Smart Interaction features available to the UN55ES8000 will only be compatible with the TV's on-board systems and will not allow you to directly control a set top box or other 3rd party device.

It's really up to the individual as to which size "is the best".

For movie viewers: We recommend that you sit back as far as you're going to sit in your house from the store's display. Measure the distance, and then see if you can see the whole screen without constantly moving your eyes. The less you move your eyes, the less eye strain you'll experience over long periods of viewing. That's one option.

The other option is the "bigger is better" theory, where your primary goal is to have a huge set, and impress your friends, and allow for everyone in a large room to watch the TV from different areas. This is a good theory, as some people want to do just that. Now, it won't "hurt your eyes" if the screen is actually too big, but you will likely enjoy the overall experience less if you're constantly moving your eyes while watching a show.

We appreciate your interest in Samsung products, and hope this helps give you some insight. The key to long viewing is having a screen that fits your preference.

All UN, PN and LN units (North American Units) will only have support for NTSC/ATSC/QAM broadcasting systems and NA power systems. Since the NA TVs will not accept a PAL signal or Non-NA voltages, you will not only need a converter for the broadcast, but also for the power if you would like to use the TV in a PAL country. Unfortunately, I will not be able to recommend a specific converter since Samsung cannot offer support for products we do not manufacture.

As far as I know, yes. It runs flash stuff on the websites I check out. So I assume the answer is yes, based on my internet usage.

I checked out my website on there and I use flash on it, and it ran just fine.

I also use the Logitech k400 keyboard/mouse combo with my tv. It is awesome!

As a matter of fact, all of the 2012 Samsung TVs (including the UN55ES8000) that offer the built-in Web Browser will indeed offer limited Flash content playback.

Question

FEATURE Differences between UN55ES8000FXZA, 7500 & 7100

It shows that the 8000 and 7100 both have DLNA but website shows that the UN55ES7500FXZA does NOT have the DLNA...

But what about all other Major NEW and AWESOME FEATURES.

What about Remote, do all of them have same remote as the 8000 which has built in Voice Control? Will Others still Support Voice Control (Like the 8000) even if u had to or could purchase the Same Remote as the 8000 would they support all features?

Do they all have the Motion Control and Voice Control and Face Recognition Features?

Are there any Differences between them in regards to the SMART TV Capabilities and SKYPE Capabilities.

I am not too worried about the Picture Quality / Refresh Rate / Clear Motion Rate All of THESE seem to be pretty CLEAR as to the Differences between one Model to the Next.
BUT, it is NOT so clear as to all the Cool little FEATURES that are NEW in the top of the line 8000 model for 2012 Which of these Awesome little Features and such will NOT be on the OTHER Models and which ones might Still be Supported on the OTHER Models by simply an Upgrade (ie: the 8000 comes with the built in Skype Camera but others can have it added on and do the same thing?) (and: Even though the 8000 comes with the Better Remote with Voice Control and such, with the Others "Even if they don't come packaged with THAT Remote" atleast Support All the Features if you were to purchase the Upgraded Remote for them?)

Thank You so much for all your help.
Scott

Scott, just set up my 8000, sound controll and motion controll are only usefull if your using the installed speakers and chanel tuner, if you are like most high end users, connecting to a cable/ satalite/ dish eliminates the option of changing stations, and using an amp for sound eliminatest the usefullness of the tv controlling sound as it wont controll your amp. guess the built in camera for skype is usefull, but havnt set it up as of yet, but dont see any samsung aps am interested in as dont use netflix and doubt will surf via tv when a laptop is more convienent and faster. best of luck choosing, only settled on mine because of open box pricing.

I would be happy to assist you with this information! Actually, aside from picture quality differences (which I will not go into since this is not what you wanted to know) there are a few feature similarities and differences between the ES8000, ES7500 and ES7100:

1. WiFi- All three of these models will offer the same built-in WiFi

2. Skype- All three of these models will offer the same Skype connectivity

3. Keyboard- All three of these TVs will be compatible with Samsung's Smart Wireless Keyboard (sold separately) and also a generic USB keyboard

4. Web Cam- Only the ES7500 and higher will offer the built in Web Cam, while the ES7100 will require you to purchase the Samsung Web Cam separately

5. Smart Interaction- Although both the ES7500 and ES8000 offer Smart Interaction, the ES7100 will not and thus will not be compatible with the Smart Touch Remote

Aside from that, they all offer the same AllShare features, Smart TV features, and ConnectShare Movie features.

As a matter of fact, all of the Samsung 3D TVs can convert 2D to 3D as well as display 2D and 3D content natively and display only the left eye signal to allow 3D to be down-converted to 2D.
