    Samsung - 40" Smart TV with UHD & HDR

    |
    |
    Posted .

    Excellent color definition TV. Very few UHD & HDR telecasts from my cable provider. However, ESPN broadcasts appear close to UHD image quality. TV's speaker position provides better sound projection than rear mounted speakers in standard HD LED sets. Combination of Samsung's Smart BluRay DVD player with this smart set is easy install and significant upgrade to DVD picture quality.

    Best 40" 4K HDR TV you can buy at BB

    I got the TV for my office/gaming set-up (see pic below). I have PS4 Pro attached to it for "4K" gaming. The TV has pretty good quality screen that has decent brightness and HDR for it's size. MU7000 series is mid-tier Samsung model, but it has almost everything that MU8000 has except for higher brightness setting. The TV looks very nice when it's wall mounted. The tyzen software is very quick and smart. It automatically recognizes HDMI equipment and labels them. The apps are fast and it supports HBO go and HBO now.

    I did my homework, researched for weeks and compared prices .. Best Buy had the TV I always wanted and at the best price point. I could not be happier with my magnolia Samsung ! It’s stunning and so user friendly.

    Owned for more than 2 years when reviewed.

    I’ve only had this TV for 2 years and the screen started going dark on the right side. There are also more dark spots shooting up from the bottom. I even have pictures. I am so disappointed & dissatisfied. Mo other older 32” Samsung is perfect. Very annoying while watching many shows...

    Right size for a small apartment

    This is a replacement to a 42 inch Panasonic Plasma TV. I tried the Sony 49 inch 4K HDR TV. Given that I use a PS4Pro, it kinda felt automatic to stick with the same Sony brand. Sadly, I was not satisfied due to the overwhelming sized Android apps. The set up with my receiver, cable box, game console got tedious, intimidating and frustrating that it seemed I had more trouble putting the TV and my other electronics all together to reach a seamless sync. I did notice color bleeding too, by the way. In addition, I wasn't thrilled of the screen size since my apartment is small. Not happy and satisfied so I returned it. I then decided to switch to this Samsung 40 inch model, (after seeing a Demo in Magnolia). It is a slight downgrade in size from my former TV and must admit, I was also a bit worried that I might go through the same setup scenario like the other brand. I do spend a lot of my entertainment time on my PS4 Pro. Who wants to literally jump on your seat to jump and glide while playing a game? The 49 inch made me do that.... The Samsung 40 inch was the perfect size (not too big, not too small) and not to forget, stunning picture clarity. I can definitely say, I have no regrets on returning the other brand. The setup on this Samsung model was a breeze, the quality of the picture like I mentioned above is stunning. Coming from a Plasma with 1080p resolution and switching to 4K resolution was worth the jump, let me repeat- worth the jump and I'm absolutely positive my PS4 Pro thought the same. Bottomline: Very happy and satisfied with this model. Great job on this one Samsung. This model is a gem.

    Amazing 4K TV

    I absolutely am in love with this TV. Setup: So quick and easy, except for the Terms of Service agreement glitch. Had to reset the TV back to factory defaults because the TV wouldn't connect to the server when trying to agree to the Terms of Service. But it was an easy fix after going online and researching the error. Apparently, it's a well-known Samsung glitch. Quality: The colors are so amazing and vivid. I upgraded from a 1080p Model 6350, and the 4K definitely makes a difference. Cons: I was surprised to find out that the 2 USB TV inputs cannot show content from USB flash drives - they only accept USB external hard drives. I had videos saved on a flash drive that I was able to watch on my other Samsung TV, but that is no longer an option. And I really wanted to see those videos on a 4K TV. Overall, I am really impressed with this 7000 series model. The menus are more refined and look crisp, and navigating through them is much more smoother. Color and picture quality have definitely been improved.

    40" Amazing Samsung 4K HDTV

    I hope by giving this thing such a glowing review early in my experience with it (2 weeks), that I am not setting myself up to have to revise it when things go south. The picture is great when comparing it to my 12 year old Panasonic 38" plasma that is still going strong. I think that the picture clarity and detail really set this TV apart. My old plasma really did a good job with the blacks and had well saturated color. The Samsung colors are good and the sound is OK. I know other people really love the speakers on this set but they just don't do it for me. When I want to watch a movie, I use my expensive surround sound home theater system. The remote was hard for me to get comfortable with at first but now I love the simplicity. My first impression after seeing only 6 buttons was that this thing was going to be incredibly limiting. As it turns out, the remote is pretty good but should be back lit. My cheap WOW cable remote is back lit. Since this was my first 4K TV, I was kind of shocked to see the programming all look like the afternoon soap operas in that the motion was too realistic and didn't resemble anything I was used to seeing on a TV. It turns out that I am not alone in my perception. The motion smoothing function of the set made things look like they were shot with my video camera. I turned the motion smoothing feature off and now things look normal again. Setup was pretty easy and the menus were straightforward. The only other nit pick if I had one is using the browser with the remote...moving the cursor is clumsy. Overall, I bought it for the picture and that has not let me down yet. Time will tell whether this set will be as reliable as my old Panasonic plasma.

    Bought this TV for my bedroom and could not be happier. I wanted a 40" with both 4K and HDR, and this fit that perfectly. Paired with the new Apple TV 4K, the picture quality is absolutely stunning. I am even blown away by the sound quality from the TV itself, no sound bar is needed. Fair warning, I will say that out of the box the picture settings needed to be adjusted. These menus are slightly overwhelming, however, upon googling this model I was able to find a guide to follow which helped me achieve optimal settings. Overall if you're looking for a smaller TV with all the latest capabilities, this 40" Samsung is your answer.

    Best Display I Have Ever Purchased

    Posted .

    I am normally a PC gamer, but my buddies convinced me to get an Xbox One X so we could all play together. At the time I had a 4k gaming monitor that only supported 4k 60hz over display port, 1080p over HDMI and had no HDR. Not acceptable, of course.so, I strarted looking for a display that I could hook both my PC and Xbox to. I started researching displays online, thinking I'd have to compromise some image quality, etc if I go back to a tv from a monitor. Monitors with HDR at a decent size are way to expensive, so my search was narrowed to TV's, where the Samsung's were quickly starting to stand out for their low input lag while gaming. I went with the mu7000 over the cheaper mu6300 because of the HDR feature. I was honestly shocked at how good and detailed the picture looked. I sit about 3.5 feet from the screen and the picture is still super sharp. Not a pixel in site. I can't stress enough how much this tv looked better than my 4k monitor. Also, it does not skip a beat while gaming. No noticeable input lag or problems keeping up with fast motions. The Xbox One X games with HDR look amazing. My PC has twin gtx980 cards, and I crank up the graphic settings, this tv more than keeps up. Hulu and Netflix looks noticeably better also. I love this tv. Best display I have ever had. Hands down. The sound on this tv is awesome too! I played for about a month without a headset. This tv had very crisp sound and I could actually tell what direction the sound was coming from. Even somethin like a bullet whizzing by came across very clear left to right, or vise versa. Movies and shows sound great too. I feel no need for external speakers.

    Great option for a smaller space

    Set up was easy, about 45 minutes overall, with setting up the smart TV functions about 15 minutes of that. We have Directv and there was no problem with set up as I recall some have questioned for the Samsung Smart TV's. The picture quality is definitely a step up from a standard LCD HD TV. Have had the TV about a month and have not experienced any problems. Just watched an Ultra 4K DVD (Blade Runner 2049) for the for first time and was very impressed by the picture and sound quality. Just make sure to buy a quality 4K Ultra HD player and HDMI cables to carry 4K signal to take full advantage of what this set has to offer. For the average Joe like myself if you need a TV to put in a smaller space I certainly recommend this model. When our 65'' Mitsubishi LCD quits we won't hesitate to replace it with another Samsung 4K Ultra HD Smart TV.

    This set does everything, including having multiple HDMI ports and the ability to do internet. It also sees my solid state drive which is mounted on my network. Unlike my Roku, it plays ALL video file types. Great sound and interesting TV remote that is NOT optical, so you dont have to aim it precisely. The only bad thing: at initial setup ,removing the clear tape (that was put on the set to protect the metal borders) wound up removing some of the metallic paint.

    I was anxious to get a 4K tv for Christmas and the overall closeness of the people on the screen takes some getting use to. The intense clarity makes the people on screen look like you are right next to them. It takes some getting use to. I purchased a 40 inch screen which was the smallest 4k in the brands I was shopping for - Samsung and Sony. I have historically owned Sony's but the smallest set available was 43 inches. It is a slight learning curve with the Samsung remote and the set options are at the bottom of the screen to scroll to your options. I watched an Amazon video then switched back to the Fios and I had to hold down the speaker button on the Samsung remote and tell it what volume to adjust to. The FIOS remote volume button would not work on the volume. The Geek squad was helpful and set it up fine. We struggled to find the right size wall mount since the wall had a bathroom on the other side of the wall. Fortunately, the Geek Squad had one in the car so a 39 in wall mount worked on our 40 inch set even though the directions recommended the wall mount for no larger then a 39 inch size screen. I would recommend this set in a bigger room to appreciate it more.

    This was the smallest 4k available. My porch isn't very large so I needed a 32", but this 40" was it. Very easy set up. Tv found my WiFi easily and the menu also was easy. 4k on WiFi is great, and 1080p is good, too. The 1080p on my Panasonic plasma tv is better, but not by much. Sound quality is excellent. I have to keep the volume down unless there are landscaping equipment running nearby. Btw, though the tv isn't weather proof this is on a screened in porch, but I bought a cover for it. That works well for most occasions. I did take the tv inside during hurricanes. So far internet apps come up easily. Netflix and Amazon prime work well. The small remote is ok. Took a while to get used to it, but no problems. Directv remote works with my Genesis II system perfectly. Overall a really nice Samsung product.

    I wanted a TV for my bedroom that would not be like being in the movie theater in my bed. 43"- 45" perfect. The picture is perfect sound is better than most on the market. I purchased a Bose sound bar at the same time and return the sound bar because believe it or not the TV speakers were load enough by themselves. I HATE the new REMOTE! If you had old Samsung TV keep your remote! My old one stoped working and I which I could find it online the new ones are garbage.

    I went online to a lot of sites that have done a review on this television. I was in the market for a new tv and it was between this one and the Sony 43 inch with hdr. This tv is amazing! It has excellent color reproduction, very deep dark blacks with bright whites. It’s also he perfect size for a bedroom which is what I’m using it for. I highly recommend this set and to also pair it with the Samsung sounds be that Best Buy has in sale the m430 I believe is the model. Don’t hesitate if you’re in the market for this size 4K tv with hdr it cannot be beat!

    I am extremely satisfied with the quality of the picture with this TV. I am running a new PS4 Pro on this TV and the combination of 4K and HDR support is top notch. Setup was also a breeze, the on-screen step-by-step instructions really helped. My only knock on this TV was the number of menus and settings that I had to sift through to get it set up correctly for my needs. It is worth noting, HDR IS NOT ENABLED AUTOMATICALLY. I had to apply HDR support to the HDMI input I was using for my PS4.
