This is by far the best television ever. The sharpness of the picture, the colors, the contrast are perfect. Have the 65" JU7500 for about two months now and I find I am enjoying it more each day. This replaced a 10 year old 47" Vizio which I was still enjoying, but you don't realize what's new on the market until you go searching. The 4K capability resulted in my first subscription to Netflix. While the 4K upscaling already looks fantastic, those done directly in 4K format are simply amazing. The 3D through the PS3 is also far better than expected. Like everyone else, I do believe this should have come with more than pair. I added four of the battery sets and three of the rechargables but I find the battery life of the non-rechargables to be extremely short. Sound is very good but I already had a 5.1 Vizio sound bar and just use that now. This is used wall-mounted and I have sliding glass patio doors on the opposite wall. This has had hardly no effect in viewing even with the curtains fully open, unlike my Vizio, which was barely viewable then. Extremely pleased overall and I would highly recommend this TV.
Just got it today. No complaints. Serial number & model are on gray label. Very hard to read when your 65, even with bifocals, magnifying glass and a lamp, I kid you not. The picture seemed very dark but after setting it to natural it was fine.
Very good 4k tv but a lesser 3d tv. Sound is good but could have been better. Only one 3d glass free for the tv which is also disapointing. Looking for more apps updates as currently it is meagre.
Iâ€™ve had the 75â€� Samsung 7100 for about four weeks now. This television is quite stunning and even after a month I am taken aback by how amazing the picture is. That is not to say everything went smoothly initially. I found other reviews helpful so thought I would add my experiences and more importantly how I overcame them. People had previously quoted other issues with apps and TV switching off but whether the firmware has been upgraded or something else, I have had no trace of anything like that. I had the following four issues: Audio synchronization Picture judder Getting apps like Netflix to play through the home theater system Glossy Screen I am not a technical geek and so I canâ€™t answer the technical questions but I can tell you how I got past these problems. First of all, my setup is cable (Comcast) directly into my TiVo DVR, HDMI connect to home theater system and HDMI connect from home theater system to TV. Audio Synchronization This did not become immediately apparent because it seemed to affect different channels differently which was confusing. I called Samsung who concluded that if some channels were worse than others then it is the cable company who needs to do a box reset. A Comcast engineer came out and spent an hour checking everything and actually did a good cleanup of our cable system under the house, replacing old pieces of cable, removing any kinks etc. This actually improved our internet speed but had no impact on the synchronization. This issue is actually caused by the audio being processed faster than the picture. The TV does have an audio delay setting in menu â€" sound- additional setting â€" audio delay. Unfortunately adjusting this had no impact. I then connected the TiVo directly to the TV and this removed the issue completely meaning the problem was in the home theatreâ€™s processing of the signals. The home theatre receiver also had an audio delay feature and adjusting that setting has 99% fixed the problem. The only thing not perfect is a few channels (BBC America, Discovery and HGTV) where there is still a slight although almost imperceptible delay. I cannot understand why these 3 channels would be different to all the others! Picture Judder In previous TVâ€™s I have had motion control issues where, when watching sports the picture could not smoothly follow the action. In this case, in normal programs, the picture would occasionally judder. The TV does have motion control feature, (there are a number of settings, including smooth). I tried them all with no solution but for whatever reason, turning motion control off solved the problem completely for normal TV and sports look just fine. Getting apps like Netflix to play through the home theater system. Although I normally watch all TV through TiVo, including Netflix, I found that the Netflix app on the TV is far superior. However, when I tried to use it, I got no sound from my home theater system, only from the TV itself. The answer is an optical audio cable from the TV to the home theater system. The main thing is, it works perfectly and it was a cheap fix but I thought that HDMI 2 cables were supposed to have addressed that so that you no longer need an optical cable. Glossy Screen I have a very bright sunny room, with the walls adjacent to and opposite the TV mostly glass. Previously I had specifically bought a matte LCD TV to deal with that (Sharp Equos) and it did. This TV has a glossy screen and no matter what the reviews say, the reflections are a big issue and one that was big enough to make me question my choice. I found out however that all current high performance sets have glossy screens. Some of the LGâ€™s and Sonyâ€™s are slightly less glossy but nevertheless suffer from the same problem. No technical answer here but simple, relatively inexpensive blinds on the windows opposite the TV (the adjacent wall windows turned out not to be a problem) and the issue is gone. I preferred being able to watch TV without the blinds but it is a perfectly acceptable solution. If anybody has any ideas on the bits I donâ€™t understand, I would appreciate their input.
