Samsung UN50NU7100 has a very good picture quality thanks to the 4K resolution. Of course, it doesn’t have the same quality as QLED TVs but still very good. The most important display feature is the HDR, which provides bright and colorful images with astonishing clearness. This feature is very useful when playing games or watching colorful content. However, we have some bad news for movie lovers because this TV doesn’t have local dimming (precision black). Local dimming dims the backlight of the screen where the colors are black and it is very useful when watching content with dark scenes, like movies. However, Samsung UN50NU7100 has a 120Hz motion rate that makes the images run smoothly on the screen so you will enjoy watching action movies or sports. The colors look very good too and we will give 4/5 points for the Samsung UN50NU7100 review part of the picture quality.
Samsung UN50NU7100 is a smart TV so you can connect it to the internet and browse online content. Also you can connect a keyboard and a mouse to the TV through a USB port to make the browsing experience even better. You can access or download many apps in the smart hub or stream content like sports and movies from the biggest streaming companies. You can also share your smart phone’s screen with the TV through the mobile to TV mirroring technology. Samsung UN50NU7100 also has the V-chip that allows you to block harmful sites thus making the TV safe for family use. In addition, Samsung UN50NU7100 has all the essential connectivity and all the essential ports. Another cool feature is the Steam games streaming technology through your laptop to the TV. We will give 4.5/5 points for the Samsung UN50NU7100 review part of the features.
Samsung UN50NU7100 has two Dolby Digital Plus built-in speakers with 10W power each. The total output power of 20 W is usually enough, unless you are standing too far from the TV. If this is the case you should consider buying external speakers that will turn your room into a home theater. If you do buy external speakers you can also take advantage of the multi room link technology. The sound is usually clear, but that depends on the content quality. We will give 4/5 points for the Samsung UN50NU7100 review part of the sound.
Samsung UN50NU7100 has also a good design. The color looks good and the frame is thin. The cable management is a very important part of the design especially if you like to keep your room in an organized way and Samsung did thought about that. You can conceal the cables in one of the feet and your desk will look neat. We will give 4.5/5 points for the Samsung UN50NU7100 review part of the design.
