The UN65RU7100FXZA is an entry-level TV from Samsung RU7100 series that offers a great variety of TVs of many sizes (from 43 inches to 75 inches) all being supplied with 4K UHD picture quality, HDR support, PurColor technology, etc. The present UN65RU7100FXZA review focuses on a 65-inch model that became available for purchase in 2019.
Despite being one of the most affordable Samsung’s 4K TVs, this model still offers a full 3840x2160 resolution and 60Hz refresh rate. The 4K UHD processor is fairly powerful: it’s designed to optimize overall performance and upscale any kind of content to 4K quality. The PurColor makes the picture more detailed by revealing more color shades than the average TV show.
As for my impressions, I can say that the Samsung UN65RU7100FXZA specs do a great job to achieve a decent picture quality. It looks especially great in a dim room thanks to high native contrast ratio which contributes to deep, intense black color reproduction.
The input lag is low so the TV is pretty responsive which is good for gaming. However, note that the motion handling is quite average.
The UN65RU7100FXZA Samsung doesn’t provide voice remote control feature but can be paired with Google Home/Alexa speakers.
The back of the TV is made of black plastic with a matte texture. The V-shaped stand is made of plastic as well and maintains the TV well. However, it’s quite large so will require a lot of space. The frame of an average thickness (0.6 inch) is black as well.
By measuring 44.3 x 25.6 x 2.3 inches, the Samsung UN65RU7100FXZA turns out to be impressively slim as for an LCD TV. Besides, the TV thickness is almost uniform which makes it good for wall mount (VESA 400 x 400).
On the rear panel, you will find three HDMI ports (including one HDMI ARC), two USB ports, an RF connector which allows connecting an antenna to the TV, component/composite video inputs, Ethernet port, and optical audio port. The wireless connectivity can be performed thanks to built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support.
The TV has a pair of 10W speakers inside. They don’t seem impressive at first glance, but the Samsung UN65RU7100FXZA review is a great way to find out that these speakers are actually decent: in my test, they sounded pretty loud, and bass unexpectedly turned out to be quite hefty.
