Great picture quality although the hdr takes getting used to as some skin tones look slightly different when the background is bright. This is a tiny concession though as i was astounded watching a regular sd dvd played though a samsung bluray player, its brilliant. The remote suppled with this is not great. Everything needs to be done with a menu and a button wheel like a first generation ipod. . However the old model samsung tv’s remote worked and all the buttons keep their functions making it super easy to upgrade. The old remote also interfaced with the dvd/bluray player so i can keep that functionality too. Wall mounting isn’t flush with the wall like the model owned previously, but actually works great with a cheap ikea tv mount.
I had the samsung nu7020 (43 inch), and despite the fact that it didn’t have dynamic crystal colour or uhd dimming, the picture was outstanding. I decided that i would spend a bit more and get the 50 inch with dynamic crystal colour and uhd dimming. Honestly, i’m not sure how much of a difference the dynamic crystal colour has made. I see no real difference between the two sets. Actually overall, the nu7020 (43 inch) might have had a better picture. Perhaps this is down to screen size, the bigger you get the more imperfections you will see. Is the dynamic crystal colour on all the time, or not?. I can’t find it in the menu settings. )the ue50nu7400 offers a good to great picture most of the time, but sometimes it can look a little washed out. While playing the durrells (itv), the picture looked overly bright and dull, and then it suddenly popped into life and looked very colourful and detailed. I can’t say i noticed this on the smaller screen. Of course, it could depend on what i’m feeding the tv – how the film / tv show was shot. Don’t get me wrong, most of the time this samsung television offers an excellent picture.
Just upgraded my older 1080p to this tv and i’m pretty impressed so far. I’ve always had samsungs and have generally never been disappointed. I primarily use my tv for gaming, one suggestion i would have for others seeking to game on it would be to make sure the native ‘motion smoothing’ off – this destroys the frame delivery in faster-paced games, and for reasons i can’t explain, had some pretty dire consequences in my competitive gaming. The hdr is cool, but needs some tuning for games which have a lot of dark areas. Seems a no brainer but make sure ‘game mode’ is on if you’re running a console (this isn’t set as auto by default), without this, the picture is way too dark. This kind of tinkering around i would expect with a new tv so it hasn’t affected my rating.
I bought this from another site as at the time it was slightly cheaper and i trusted the seller more over the current amazon seller “tvsandmore”. I advise doing your own research on any third-party sellers on amazon. Design – it’s minimal and sleek, with a matt black finish. The screen sits a bit higher than my previous tv and leaves a larger gap between the base and the bottom of the tv. The stand comes out quite a bit which is a bit annoying as it means any sound bar you may use won’t be tucked neatly up against the tv, though not a huge problem. Picture – by far the best i’ve seen on any tv around this price. Featuring the new hdr10+ by samsung which certainly future proofs this tv. You will need to play around with the image settings to get it looking perfect and i advise turning off the motion plus feature to avoid the ‘soap opera effect’ all tvs can display. The image can get a little darker around the bottom and top edge but it doesn’t matter because the image quality will still blow you away with rich colours, super bright whites and deeps blacks. I had the 2015 samsung 6400 which had much better sound but admittedly, that did have the best sound amongst tvs at the time. The sound is clear and is good enough for viewing tv shows but those wanting great sound for gaming or movies will have to invest in a sound bar. The nu7400 doesn’t feature an audio jack but does have an optical port, so you may need to buy an adapter. Smart features – a slight upgrade from previous versions. Very intuitive and easy to use.

- Featuring Dynamic Crystal Colour
Absolute love the software loaded on to the tv – very responsive and easy to use. Has apps for everything i wanted and i also downloaded the plex app from the app store on the tv with ease. Hope this tv lasts for a long time.
Great picture and sound quality. Good luck trying to setup 2 headphones. Hate the forced ads and the native apps that you cannot remove. This is why it gets 3 stars.
Brilliant tv which i have set up with sky q. One thing i would recommend though is switching off the motion plus in the expert picture settings as this gives a really strange ghosting to normal tv programmes.

First tv arrived broken, which was frustrating, but the seller replaced it very efficiently and kept me informed all the way. I was utterly baffled setting it up and still haven’t made benefit of all the features. The controller baffled me for days (and still does a little bit). Great picture, good sound and lots of features. The seller fluctuates the price for some reason- when i returned it and re bought it i saved £28 which was a pleasant surprise.
It is a nice looking tv, any colour that isn’t black looks great on it. However, be aware that you may either get this tv with a va or ips panel. I got ips panel and damn, it is horrible. Viewing angles are great but black looks grey on this tv and it also suffers from screen bleeding, which distorts dark colours. Screen bleeding is the reason i am returning this item. However, if you don’t mind screen bleeding and poor black colors, this is a phenomental tv.
I bought this tv so i could get the full potential from my xbox one x and in that respect this tv doesn’t fail. However annoying things like having to re-enter my geographic region in to this tv every 24 hours is becoming a pain. Also, when turning my tv on in the mornings it doesn’t resume on the input that i left it on when i turned it off last. And perhaps most annoying of all is that this tv keeps losing its connection to my wifi and the only way to remedy this is to unplug the tv from the outlet and then plug it back in. Then, i have to re-enter my wifi details because this tv doesn’t remember them after it’s been unplugged. This would be a 5 star tv for its price bracket if it wasn’t for its numerous issuesedit: all issues have been resolved other than the wifi issue. The wifi issue is a big deal so because of that my rating remains at 4 stars.

Super set with lots of features great picture and very easy to set up but. It has not got a charcoal black bezel as in the description. It is at best a dark silver stainless steel type finish. I sent it back straight away. Thanks to the seller tvsandmore for making it an easy painless process. It’s a pity because apart from the colour of the tv, i would have hapily kept it.
Default settings were too bright. Some guidance on how to best calibrate the screen would be useful. Played with the options to get something looking good. Works great with sky, bluray, xbox on hdmi, and a samsung soundbar on optical. The minimal looking remote is great. In built apps for amazon etc are good.
Tv is just brilliant good colours, sound for me is perfectly good as one would expect for 20 watt speakers. Its bluetooth is simple to set up and so far no drop out or distortion clear as a bell. The smart hub functions work well especially with the smart remote easy to nip around menus with its disc and button design. Cant say i care much for voice activated tech i always find it faster typed or clicked but this seems to work ok. Playing files from blu ray or usb also easy to use and then theres the picture quality. Its really impressive especially for the price my older tv is an old series 7 and still works well, but the picture quality especially with hdr is stunning and that goes for the ps4 and normal hd telly looks great. I also have to say fair play to amazon as i purchased direct from them. My tv turned up next day as promised and i set it up. Unfortunately there were some small dead pixels in the centre of the screen. Although no obvious signs of damage there was a dent in the box.

So happy with this purchase. One of the best 4k tvs in this price range, if not the best. 4k videos look amazing, and tizen is very user-friendly, as you would expect from samsung 4k tvs. I was thinking of buying the nu7100 earlier, but i’m glad i bought this instead, well worth it; you get a smart remote and bluetooth unlike the nu7100, i think it has better uhd dimming as well. Tested hdr on amazon prime and netflix and the picture looks crisp, i’m really happy with it. This tv is especially great for gamers since the input lag is only 15ms in game mode. The stand is the least impressive part about the tv, wish it wouldn’t stick so far out in the front, but even that’s a nitpick, i’m not really bothered about it. If you’re mounting it on the wall, then this isn’t even a problem for you. Overall, you just cannot go wrong with this tv, especially for this price. You cannot compare it to the quintessential qleds and oleds, this is a budget 4k tv, and it still exceeded my expectations.
I should start off by saying at less than £500 this tv is an absolute steal. The picture quality is excellent and it has some well thought out features whilst mostly trying not to be overly complicated. Watching content in 4k hdr is stunning, what’s equally as impressive is how 1080p and even standard definition content is upscaled to look on this display. I have sky q (non uhd), the hd channels really look fantastic and that’s coming from a solid 1080p lg display that this replaced. Of course you’re not going to be getting oled/qled type blacks and colours, but this isn’t far off, and at a fraction of the cost. The smart remote is surprisingly useful and user friendly. There are of course some quirks where it’s trying to be a bit clever, the voice recognition for example is pretty woeful – the remote integrates with sky and my soundbar so you don’t have to have any other remotes lying around, but then the voice control doesn’t bring up anything on sky. The smart features of the tv get the job done – netflix, prime video etc are there and in 4k (albeit i had to log in several times for the uhd content to show on prime). For some reason every time i remove ‘tv plus’ from my menu it comes back which is a minor annoyance but it’s not exactly hurting. I decided not to pay the extra for an android os tv mostly because my experience of them is pretty terrible and the snappiness of the samsung os has justified this decision.
I ordered this tv to replace my mother-in-law’s old samsung that was taking 15 mins to load the guide. The tv arrived the next day in perfect condition and, after assembling the stand, it took about 10 mins to setup. It connected to the internet quickly and formatted the external hard drive i bought separately to use live pause and record. All the hd freeview channels were instantly available and a host of apps including bbc iplayer, ch4 hub, itv, netflix, amazon prime and youtube. Very happy with the picture quality and functionality and particularly like the sky q style vocal search. The mini remote is a great alternative to the main remote and the interface is simple and intuitive to use. Very pleased with this purchase and highly recommended.
Tv arrived earlier than expected. Easy to fit the stand, but definitely needs two people to lift it safely. The picture is quite outstanding, and i am well pleased with it. It’s easy to set up, and when connected to a 4k source, the picture is excellent. Black is deep, and color’s are rich.

I have already reviewed this tv a while ago (i think) but bad reviews made me do it again. I do not understand people ratings at all. For example 1 star because tv does not have scart connection?. Why don’t check specs before buying?.3 stars for lack of headphone jack (which i miss ass well but i knew when i bought it) people give it 3 stars because they try to put sondbar in front of it and it’s blocking the ir sensor (really?) 3 stars because not having the wanted exterior colour?4 stars because the sound is not perfect?. (what would you expect from a thin tv?. Where the big speakers for incredible sound should be mounted?)and the list can go on. I had this tv for about 4 months and i really enjoying it. It cannot be hdr as stated because it’s peak luminosity it’s just not high enough for that. I do not like the blotware apps and the fact that on tizen they are not too many useful apps that can be installed and the internal storage capacity won’t allow it anyway. Alot of things are not perfect with this tv but even so. I’m not expecting perfection from 50″ £500 tv. For that you’ll have to get a series 8 samsung tv.
A lovely tv, slim, good colour and size, just a shame about the sound. The sounds is not great compared to my older one, but have bought a soundbar, so hope that will fix that problem. Update: i got a sony sound bar and subwoofer but its as if the optical and hdmi with arc dont work on my tv. The only way i am able to get the sound bar to work is with blu-tooth which is not ideal. The optical just always says no speaker detected, (arc hdmi just does nothing as far as i can see) it did this with the first sound bar i tried so doesnt look like it is the sound bars problem. Quite disappointed with samsungs interface and not being able to just pick the sound bar up with the optical cable. Update 2: i submitted a support request via the tv and 2 days later received a support call. A very helpful lady helped me try a few things, then we tried another hdmi cable and it seemed to work. So now have the tv linked to the sound bar via the hdmi arc connection. So would seem that even if you get a hdmi cable that says arc compatible it may still not work so try a few hdmi cables.
Nice tv a++++ , very good quality, bluetooth, fast delivery i get it in few days by ups. Fantastic image, first time when i open i thought is too big for my room but now i get to use it and i feel like in cinema at home )), just waiting my 5. 1 sound speakers and i ready to go :), sorry for my english )).

Item arrived 3 days early in perfect condition. Picture quality compared to my previous 4 year old samsung is unreal. Watched a 4k flick on amazon prime last night and was blown away. Also have it hooked up to an xbox one x and, once calibrated, the picture quality is stunning with hardly any input lag. Only slight niggle, which others have eluded to, is the sound quality is not on par with the picture quality. I’ll be saving up for a soundbar next. That said, so much bang for my buck here. Would highly recommend for those who are looking to upgrade and are on low-mid range budget.
The controller uses some rather unconventional approaches that take getting used to but once those are mastered (which, to be fair, didn’t take too long) i found it better than other standard or so-called magic controllers. Nevertheless, a senior with any learning limitations might have trouble with it. I needed both satellite and terrestrial antennas (e. For freeview & freesat or saorview & saorsat, depending on location) and this facility seems to be getting increasingly uncommon, so that was my main reason for selecting this tv. Nevertheless, i am delighted by the tv itself, in all respects and it has exceeded my expectations.
This tv is great first of all, there’s no issues with picture or image quality; in fact it’s probably the best tv for the price. My issue with this tv is samsung themselves and how they’ve set it up, for many people i imagine the stock stand will be fine but for me i wanted to wall mount this. Not only does it come with no bolts which id expected; the bolts required are insane. It needs m8 bolts but they won’t fit and they require 42-45 mm ones, most hardware stores don’t sell those sizes. Also the tv has a curved back so some of the main bolts housings are shorter and some are longer meaning you would have to mess around with trial and error. To try and get more information i contacted samsung, not only were they unable to help me but kept putting me onto 3rd party companies who didn’t sell anything suitable in regards to mounting kits: despite these being mentioned in the manual as official mounting kits. After wasting my time with rude and poorly trained support employees i decided to ring amazon. Again amazon couldn’t help me other than to advise on items bought together. So i bought a kit which said “frequently bought together” again the bolts were not suitable and i had to waste my time sending them back. Eventually i got a tradesman to come fit the tv and he did a wonderful job and he also commented on my issues as being correct and he was shocked to see such a big manufacturer make such a poor design for mounting.
