The present UN55RU7100FXZA review is dedicated to the 55-inch RU7100 series model that provides TVs with a wide array of advanced features like 4K UHD, HDR, Alexa/Google Assistant compatibility and others for an affordable price. Plus, despite their budget price, all the TVs from the series go with One Remote — large, multifunctional remote control which also ships with Samsung's more expensive models and allows controlling all the compatible with the TV devices.
The UN55RU7100FXZA delivers decent performance when it comes to both sound and picture. Inside, the TV has a pair of 10W speakers (with two channels) which in total provides 20W of power. They can get pretty loud and give out mighty bass. In terms of picture reproduction, the Samsung UN55RU7100FXZA provides 3840 x 2160 resolution, 60Hz refresh rate, and is capable of showing up to 1.07 billion color shades.
The usage of a 4K UHD processor made it possible for the TV to upscale content to near-4K-level quality. This feature will work great for watching old Full HD movies in better quality. To make the picture more natural, the UN55RU7100FXZA Samsung uses UHD Dimming — special technology which is responsible for the color deepness and creates greater contrast between dark and light color shades. The PurColor Spectrum technology contributes to the picture’s naturalness as well.
One of the most important things in this Samsung UN55RU7100FXZA review is that the TV supports not just standard HDR but also HDR10, HLG, HDR10 which together make the picture even more realistic.
This model from Samsung goes in a modern slim design, so the TV will easily fit in a tight space. Besides, its thin panel makes it especially good for wall mount (200 x 200 VESA). The TV’s body is colored in charcoal black and made of plastic. The V-shaped stand is also made of plastic and seems reliable. It has black average-size borders around the screen.
The TV weighs 44 pounds and measures 48.8 x 31.6 x 14 inches, being suitable for a mid-size living-room.
On the rear panel, you will find three HDMI inputs, two USB ports, composite/component video inputs, VGA input, and Ethernet port. This TV also supports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections, but, however, Bluetooth supports only audio profiles (headphones, soundbars, etc.) but doesn’t support other devices such as keyboards, for example.
You won’t have to worry about the initial setup: the included Samsung UN55RU7100FXZA manual is very detailed and easy-to-understand.
