Samsung TU7100

Today we are taking a closer look at the 55-inch Samsung UE55TU7100KXXU which is one of the best-sellers in the TU7100 lineup. 

It seems like the 55-inch segment is growing quite a lot in the last couple of years and some consumer these days consider this to be a mid rather than big-screen TV. The TU7100 series can be ordered with up to 75-inch display which is a bit too much for regular home use.

And now, lets take a closer look at the most important specs of the UE55TU7100KXXU:

And even thought the TU7100 series have everything needed on board (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 4k...) it is far from the premium Samsung TVs. That can be very much noticed if you compare picture quality with any of their high-end televisions and go up to the most expensive QLED models.

On the other hand Samsung UE55TU7100KXXU offers pretty good picture quality and adequate sound from the 20W speakers. Unfortunately, no subwoofer here.
