Samsung UN55RU7100FXZA Affordable 55-Inch 4K UHD TV Review

The Samsung RU7100 is one of Samsung’s affordable TV offerings for 2019, it’ll likely prove to be one of the better choices throughout the year for anyone who wants a solid TV at a decent price. All six sizes in the RU7100 series lineup are competitively priced and deliver dependably decent picture quality regardless of content. So, there’s a good chance if you’re looking for an affordable 4K offering with a decent price but if you’re shopping for a premium 4K/HDR TV, the RU7100 will probably underwhelm you.

The Samsung RU7100 also known as the 7 Series, available in six sizes ranging from 43 inches to 75 inches. For this review, we test the 55-inch version of the RU7100, UN55RU7100FXZA. Here’s what features you’re getting with the 7 Series, regardless of size: 4K (3,840 x 2,160) resolution, Supports High Dynamic Range (HDR10), Native 60 Hz refresh rate and Samsung’s Smart Hub smart platform. The RU7100 doesn’t offer the type of advanced connectivity suite you’d find on the back of a higher-end TV, but if you’re a general user, you’ll probably happy with these inputs: 3x HDMI 2.0 (1x ARC), 2x USB 2.0, Ethernet port, RF input, and optical audio output.

 

Pros

  • Simplicity – without a busy, cluttered stand beneath the panel.
  • Sleek design – will fit nicely in any room.
  • Bezels are narrow – allowing for more screen.
  • Solid performance – especially for the cost.
  • Decent picture quality – regardless of content.
  • Impressive contrast – for TVs in this price range.

Cons

  • Poor HDR performance – don’t expect it to get super bright like higher-end HDR TVs.
  • Narrow viewing angles – similar to the most VA panels in this price range.
  • Smart platform and the RU7100’s basic menu software feel sluggish and outdated.

The Samsung RU7100 is a great option for people who need a new TV this year but would rather not spend a premium on high-end performance or unnecessary features. If you’re not a Samsung fan, you could find this type of performance for far less than the cost of the RU7100. Consider, for example, the recently released TCL 4 Series. The TCL 4 Series comes with Roku’s smart platform and TCL app is much friendly. All in all, the Samsung UN55RU7100FXZA is a solid performer, solid bang for the buck. With the RU7100, you’re certainly not buying a bad TV.
