Samsung UN50NU6900FXZA: Simple 50-Inch 4K TV With PurColor

Samsung UN50NU6900FXZA

The NU6900 series include one of the most affordable Samsung's 4K TVs which, however, are supplied with many useful features, like Universal Guide and PurColor technology, for instance. The UN50NU6900FXZA is a 50-inch model that was manufactured in 2018.

First of all, this 4K TV has the ability to upscale Full HD quality to 4K thanks to the powerful UHD engine. Among the other important Samsung UN50NU6900FXZA specs, pay attention to Proctor — a technology which, along with the PurColor, is designed to show more color shades and fine-tune them so the TV is able to display a really vivid picture. The Auto Motion Plus works to provide a smooth motion. The TV also supports HDR10 so you can view a high dynamic range content.

The other important point in this UN50NU6900FXZA review is Samsung's Smart TV platform which is very convenient and multi-functional thanks to the Universal Guide which provides the ability to collect all your favorite content in one place. It supports all the most popular streaming services, like Netflix, Hulu, HBO, YouTube, Vudu, Amazon Video, etc. It also recommends the most popular TV shows and can make custom recommendations based on your taste.

The TV uses standard as for an entry-level model 20W stereo speakers which don’t provide any surround sound features but are quite satisfactory for basic audio needs.

I would also like to use this Samsung UN50NU6900FXZA review to attract gamer’s attention to this TV as the provided Steam Link app allows streaming games seamlessly with superior graphics and speed.

The Samsung UN50NU6900FXZA design is similar to the higher-end models. Its body is made of solid plastic, and the borders around the screen are 55-inch wide. The slim design won’t make the TV bulge out too much if you mount it on a wall. The TV’s stand is reliable but low, so you can’t place the soundbar right in front of the TV as it will block the view.

Unfortunately, the TV offers only two HDMI inputs so you can only connect two devices simultaneously. There are also a USB and Ethernet ports, and an optical digital audio output. The TV also supports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connection.

In the box, you will find the UN50NU6900FXZA manual and remote control. It’s standard and is designed to adjust the TV’s functions and to navigate Samsung Smart TV menus. If you want to get voice control, it’s not a problem as this model is Alexa and Google Assistant compatible.
