Samsung UE55MU7000 User Review

  • w0z
    OK viewed head-on but unacceptable loss of contrast off-axis.
    Review of Samsung UE55MU7000 LED LCD TV by w0z, Nov 25, 2017.
    Great TV if DIRECTLY in front of it, but viewed from even a FEW degrees off-axis horizontally, and as far as I'm concerned it's at best irritating and at worst unwatchable.
    It's a deal breaker for me; had I appreciated how narrow the viewing angle was I wouldn't have purchased it. The layout of my room is such that only a couple of people can sit directly in front (and I'm not one of them!) but if it's going to be placed in a fixed position where it will always be viewed head-on I guess it would be OK.
    Also random infrequent brief 'stutter' artifacts, but they don't seem to bother others.
    Usability and interface are good, also nice to have both Freesat and Freeview.
    £150 drop in price not long after purchase (a few months). I feel cheated but I guess that's the way of tech.
    Notwithstanding the above comments I'm not sure that at that time I could have bought anything with better performance/looks without spending a great deal more. (just trying to make myself feel better!)
    This item was purchased for 1050 less Samsung 20 from Richer Sounds in 2017. The reviewer still owns this product.

    Pros

    • Pleasant design, thin bezel, stand can be fitted in narrower position
