Samsung UN75RU7100FXZA: Budget-friendly 75-inch 4K TV with Low Input Lag

Samsung UN75RU7100FXZA

Low price is the first thing to draw attention to the UN75RU7100FXZA model. A UHD TV with a 75-inch diagonal and the tag going below $1200, it beats the majority of competitors. Yet, the clunky UI and only decent 4K/HDr performance might be the deal breakers for some users.

The TV belongs to the RU7100 series of Samsung TVs offering a wide choice of screen sizes (43 — 75 inches). The common features are good color accuracy and deep enough blacks in the dark room. Yet, the brightness isn’t high. Smart features and connections are many while the functionality of advanced technologies (like voice control) is limited.

The Samsung UN75RU7100FXZA produces a clear image in 4K/SDR and FullHD/SDR modes. The picture is detailed, with good contrast. VA matrix makes up for uniform black and gray colors while white color tends to be cool. Red color looks somewhat washed out, but green and yellow colors are balanced. The color gamut isn’t too wide; yet, the PurColor technology improves the dark room performance. The image looks crisp and reflects shadow details well.

In this Samsung UN75RU7100FXZA review, the HDR compatibility should be mentioned, it’s actually quite limited. The FullHD/HDR improves the image in comparison with SDR format making the colors pop. Yet, the listed HDR10, 10 , and HLG formats don’t differ much when paired with UHD resolution. The Edge LED backlight doesn’t provide much brightness, and the overall performance is dim, with the shadow detail often being muffed.

With a 60Hz refresh rate (120Hz with interpolation), the TV is very responsive, and its gaming ability is worth noting in the UN75RU7100FXZA review. The input lag is standard in the Movie mode while dropping significantly in the Game one and making 5.1ms. This results in a fast response making the TV work efficiently as a PC monitor or gaming display.

The TV set offers three HDMI ports (including ARC-enabled one), two USB ones, composite and component inputs, the VGA one, optical and analog audio outs, and Ethernet port. The wireless includes two-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The latter, however, works for audio streaming only and doesn’t support other devices like a BT-enabled mouse or keyboard.

The TV has a simple enough menu, which, however, cannot be fully customized. The icons cannot be changed or deleted but only moved to a certain position on the list. The popular apps like Netflix and Hulu load content quickly and work fine. The UN75RU7100FXZA specs show no direct voice support while Alexa and Google Assistant could be accessed via smart speaker connectivity. Still, the scope of function is narrow, being limited only to browsing within the Samsung recommended content and powering off the TV.
