|ibuiltit||This is a great deal; I was about to pull the trigger but found this deal on a UN46d8000 for $12 less and it comes with 6 (yes, 6!) pairs of 3D glasses plus the blu-ray player and movies (through us-appliance.com).|

1. The contrast ratio (CR) is higher in the 7900. My understanding is the CR term itself is abused by manufacturers. There is no agreed upon standard by all manufacturers as to which unit should be used to describe CR ( i.e., what's the "exchange rate" for the scale of the contrast ratio Samsung uses vs. the scale Panasonic uses? Who knows.) Nevertheless, it seems to me that it is useful to compare CR from the same manufacturer.
2. The 7900 has Micro Dimming Plus and the 7000 has MicroDimming. MicrocDimming is software that is installed in both TVs. The "Plus" refers to hardware that is only in the 7900 and 8000 series
In the end, I think both of these make a difference in the quality of the image you will see. That's not to say that you'll necessarily be disappointed with the 7000 but rather even a person who isn't an "audiovisual enthusiast" ( which I am not ) will notice a difference. From reading different material by people who know far more about this than me, I felt like it was worth the investment.

1. the look; the D8000 has a different bezzle -- e.g., the Samsung logo is on a small tab that extends from the lower center of the screen. The D7900 has a D7000 bezzle look.
2. the size; the length and width of the D8000 is smaller in both dimensions by 0.4 inches
3. Surprisingly, I think the D7900 has two 15 W speakers compared to the D8000, which has two 10 W speakers.
4. The D8000 comes with two 3D glasses, but this is offset with the bundle that includes a pair. So if you want 4 3d glasses, you have to pay for two extra if you get the D79000.
Because there is no functional difference between the D8000 and the D7900, I think this is a pretty good deal. The D7900 is not the D7000.

|jayhua||Yeah, it's 1650 with that 3d kit... that retails for about 500. It's not just shrek 3d, it's 3 movies. We're not even talking about the D7000... this is the 7900.|

I just took a look at it but damn! You have to give out a lot of info including credit card information before you can even see the price of what youre trying to buy. Its one thing to have to "place in cart to see our price" but his site really pushes the limits. I just wanted to verify the price for a friend and make sure its still good.
You can get the D7000 with the 3-d package thru Amazon for around $1950. $300 more to go from 46 to 55? Sounds like a pretty good deal, in spite of the minor differences.

I just ordered... Damn you SD Users! I'm going bankrupt!
One thing to note for all you states that get taxed up the arse, there are no sales tax, environmental fees... etc etc... (I live in California).
Think long, think hard... deals like this won't come by that often!

most importantly are that the D7900 has Samsungs Micro Dimming Plus
the d7900 is also 25M:1 contrast ratio whie the d7000 is 15M:1
lastly while both sets are officially 240HZ samsung elite LED's have gotten an interestingly new refresh rate branding with the D7000 at CMR (Clear Motion Rate 720) and the D7900 has been dubbed to boast CMR 960 (Clear Motion Rate 960)
