Hi all,

Seeing as Samsung has now made some of the TU7000 series models available online I thought i would start an owners thread.

No date on the BBC iplayer - odd seeing as its a standard app these days.
No answer with Samsung support re the panel type.

Ok thanks, I have a short list for a replacement for my 40c750 she's using but she is feeling the need for apps. Obviously I can go and look at any myself but I might just buy her a firestick instead...

I just brought the 65" version from richer sounds but I keep thinking about exchanging it for the 55" qled instead,would it be worth the upgrade ?

The QLED Range is a higher range, so no doubt perform better - how much of a price jump is it?

£200 but richer sounds have said that the lg 55" nanocell tv on their site is a better more future proof tv for £749 so I am going for that 1

I personally would pick a Samsung over an LG LCD with an IPS panel but depends what you're used to I guess.

Hi all

I bought the Samsung UE43TU7000 and it’s not blowing me away, it looks dim compared to my old tv which was a Samsung UE40KU6020!

Noe I keep going from it looks fine to it looks dim, I guess it has t blown me away as I was hoping!

I keep telling myself does it look dim as it’s looking more realistic?

it worries me that the settings out the box are as dark as anything! Why would they even start it off looking like that?

also the left panel is ever so slightly darker, I only notice on pepos pig or a kids carton where there is a full flush of colour!

Have you turned all eco modes off?

Yes all eco modes are off, on my old tv I had a backlight setting this one does not! Now I don’t know if it’s me?!? I just didn’t get that big step up I was expecting with a newer tv.

I must admit when I bought a 4K player I wasn’t impressed, maybe I’m just so use to over saturised picture and 4K is presenting a softer more realistic image?!?

I will give it a few days and hopefully more feedback from people in the know will have some input.

I believe Backlight on newer Samsungs is 'Brightness' and what used to be brightness is now called 'Shadow Detail' so try raising Brightness if you want to increase the backlight.

Also turn off any noise reduction processing.

I can't imagine the tv not having a backlight setting however, according to the e-manual you might be correct:

The panels on the left and right are slightly darker, only slightly! Is that something you have to live with or should I seek help from Samsung? It’s only noticeable if a background is even across eg Dove advert pure white or pepos pig blue sky and green Hill.

Thank you, I'm looking for a 43 inch TV for the bedroom and it does seem choices are thin on the ground that aren't IPS. Also being a bedroom, it tends to be dark...
