    Great price for solid 4K TV

    I upgraded to this 4K TV from a Sony 50” standard HD/1080p TV. Of course I wanted one of Samsung’s pricier QLED TVs but I was on a budget so this was the next best thing. I feel it’s a small compromise and the closest in picture quality for major savings. The sound on this thing is insane. I use the Amplify setting. I had intended to get a sound bar since I had one for my last TV, but I don’t think I will need one. The picture is clear and even visible in bright lighting conditions like sun shining through the room. It does have some glare and isn’t as clear at an angle as the QLED TVs, but again, it was worth it for the savings considering most of the time I will be watching from right in front of the TV, not off to the side or at an angle. I had 4K travel videos playing in the background, with music playing when I had guests over and everyone marveled at the picture quality and it struck up conversations about vacations and traveling to the destinations that were shown. I’ve used it to watch streaming videos (Netflix, Amazon, etc) and play games on my PS4. Crystal clear picture and sound; no complaints here!

    This was a great deal from Samsung

    I know the new 8 series is available, but I was OK with purchasing the 7 series because of the great deal Samsung and Best Buy were offering. I tested at least 5 other TVs in this price range, read reviews, did my research and found for the money this TV delivers everything we needed and wanted. First of all, Best Buy store pick up option is amazing. They are very friendly and the process is easy. This TV came as a package with a free new Samsung Tablet during Black Friday, which was a nice perk. Pulling this very large TV out of the box was easy with the lift top packaging. The setting it up and registering I did on my phone with the Samsung app (which by the way links all your Samsung devices together in one dashboard, including remote controls), and the first time we turned it on...all of us went WHOA! The color and picture using 4K streaming content was amazing, definitely better than what we were used to. The size is perfect for our family room...with the sound bar we already owned we feel like we're in the theater. It brought both my teenagers to the family room to watch together, which rarely happened with our old TV. If you're looking for a great TV option, don't have a gaming "motion rate" you need but just want a good looking TV with brilliant picture, buy this one. From one avid researcher to another...

    Most bang for your buck of all 65" Smart TVs...

    There is no doubt that this one is the most bang for your buck of all the 65" Smart TVs on the market. Got the Black Friday deal of $749 which included a free Samsung 9.6" E Tablet (a $200 item). You almost triple the price when you go to the QLED models, and quite honestly, I don't see how you can justify that much more money for what you get. I also really liked the nice clean looking black frame. The ore expensive models had that silly gun metal look or silver look to them, which honestly takes away from the picture, in my opinion. I also use mine to display photography, by simply putting in a 32GB Flash Drive into the USB port on the back, and it has a nice slideshow option in the event you have people over. A wonderful way to display your photos. I'm VERY pleased with my 7100 Series Samsung 65" 4K Smart TV. I also had them include the 5 year warranty for $189. I installed it on the wall myself, and unless you know what you're doing, it's well worth the $199 mounting fee to have Geek Squad mount it for you. Just my two cents, and I've done a few. Best Buy (North Canton) was very helpful, indeed.

    This isn't my first Samsung Smart TV, not even my first one this year. It's a Samsung Series 7, so it has a lot of features and great picture quality. I do prefer curved displays, but those are becoming less common so I settled on this flat one. It doesn't look any better or worse, just a preference. It has all the video streaming apps I needed and more. It also has a lot of smart features if you have the companion app for your smartphone, which is cool since you can mirror between devices or use the phone as a remote. Setup was also easy with said companion app. This TV is in my living room, so I don't watch it that often, but when I decide to watch something in the sofa it's more than adequate. The sound is fine, but if you're planning on using it for anything more than a bedroom you'll likely want a sound bar or other external speaker. My only real complaint is that it isn't that easily wall mounted. The mounts that I purchased had screws that were too short for this TV so I had to run to Home Depot up the street and search for longer ones.

    Great picture but some Quirks

    After a week less than a week with my Samsung NU65U7100 I am less than happy. First, there is no 5G wireless connection. You need 5G to stream video at 4K resolution, so this is a serious shortcoming in the design. Now I'll need to rewire so I can run an ethernet cable from my router to the TV. Second, the TV has been turning itself on sporadically, 3 times in the last 36 hours. There are long and lengthy on-line discussions of this issue on Samsung TVs indicating possible issues with HDMI ARC cables, AnyNet setting, etc. but no clear solution. Samsung has not yet responded to my request for technical support. These are serious flaws and I may return the TV because of them. Less serious, the remote and TV interface are clunky. I have an older 55" Samsung 4K TV with a streamlined remote and a much easier/intuitive interface There is no analog audio output so I may need to upgrade my receiver or buy a sound bar if I keep the TV. Picture is great and sound quality it good (but lacks bass). Streaming from my laptop to the TV was unwatchable. It constantly buffered. I use an HDMI cable instead. I can't recommend this TV right now, even at the recently reduced prices.

    First of all I’d like to address some reviewers complaints about the WiFi—maybe they weren’t reviewing the NU-7100 as my unit has wireless AC & it streams considerably faster than my original Samsung LED tv which just had wireless N. Understanding that this is NOT one of the Q series tv’s & is under $1,000 you will appreciate the overall quality of the tv from its streaming apps to the great picture & even the sound which is pretty good at this price range. I recently was able to compare this exact unit which was displayed several feet in front of a 6000 series & several feet behind a Q series, all playing the exact same thing at the exact same time. The differences among them were jaw dropping. I really didn’t expect to see that much of a difference but it was obvious. Having said that, while I do long for a Q Series (or OLED), I’m not paying $2k for another tv maybe ever so the 7100 is a reasonable compromise as the picture quality & other features make it stand out in the sub-$1k market.

    4K on a budget

    I bought the NU7100 series 65" after comparing it to the Black Friday NU6070 offer and the NU6900. The 7100 basically has more HDMI and usb options than the other two. Non-2160p content like digital HD cable is going to look the same on all 3 tv's to the average consumer. After purchasing, you will need to spend time fine tuning all the advanced video settings before you're happy; there are lots of great vids online to help! Football and hockey look great, other HD broadcasts look sharp. As far as some of the reviews saying sports and action films don't look good on this tv, it's not true. You have to understand this model has a low refresh rate and you're only going to be "wowed" by the picture when you plug in a 4K source like bluray. 4K content looks amazing. Would look better with a more expensive 240hz refresh rate tv model but I'm not complaining. I was on a budget and am extremely happy with the upgrade from my 3 year old Samsung 59" LED!

    Our 10 year old Aquos bit the dust. We bought this for $749 black Friday weekend. We had to run new 4k hdmi cable. Huge chore since our media closet is 50 feet away. BestBuy wont do that for you. You need a licensed electrician. But picture is as good as it was in the show room. My blu ray player is 5 years old or more. Blu rays look incredible. Xbox One looks fantastic. Amazon Prime looks amazing. Netflix as well. Verizon cable eh..meh..much better than old set but that alone isn't 4k. Perfect size for our family room. Kids want to watch TV with the family now instead of retreating into their rooms on their phones and tablets. Hope it lasts. Make sure you can run your input source to your TV. Paying an electrician to run this much 4k hdmi cable is really expensive. More than we paid for the TV. But sure is worth it now. If you just run Netflix or Amazon Prime, you dont need to run any cable.

    I purchased this Samsung 65" 4K TV to replace a 60" Samsung 4K that I was very pleased with until the panel started having pixel issues two weeks after my warranty ran out. After calls to Samsung (no help) I spoke with their local recommended tech and sent a picture of the problem to him. He told me that the panel was bad and the repair cost was probably more than the TV was worth. I then called Best Buy (helpful) and discussed my options for other manufacturers, etc. In the end, it was clear that Samsung was the best option for the money. After comparing prices at other outlets, I decided to take the leap of faith and purchased another Samsung from Best Buy (the choice was aided by their great customer service both nationally and locally). The difference this time around is that I also purchased a 5-year warranty from Best Buy since the quality control of today's manufacturing makes it way too easy to get burned. It helped ease the pain that the Best Buy price for the extended warranty was reasonably priced and, given my past TV history, cheap insurance.

    I wanted a TV for my garage so I did a lot of research into which TV was the right one for my budget and needs. I watched and read review after review to a point of total inability to make a decision. Finally after many trips to Best Buy and working with a sales person named Maurice, I decided on the 7,000 series Samsung. It is a really nice TV that I watched the NCAA tournament on. I may not be as picky as others but I have no concerns with the TV watching motion sports and a bunch of other negative articles/reviews I read about. One article I read was correct; forget about all the specifications etc. and just go look at the TVs. Let your eyes make the decision. No it isn't as nice as the Samsung 8,000 series or higher. Yes you can see a difference between the TVs when they are side by side. But for the money and my needs, this TV was the right one for me. The features are great, the menus are easy to use and I found setting up the TV was pretty straightforward. Overall, very happy.

    Thinking I could get a crystal clear picture, I bought a 65 samsung Q8. Save your money you don't need anything more than a regular hd. WHY, cause nobody, direct tv or xfinity/comcast broadcast any shows that you would normally watch like discovery abc, nbc, all of them in 4k. Direct tv only offers three channels that you will never watch and xfinity only does netflix which I don't subscribe to. I currently have direct tv which is the only service that offers the nfl sunday ticket. I thought I'd be able to watch sports in 4k. NOPE! Therefore no reason to buy super expensive tv cause it does nothing that a regular hd tv would do. I'm very disapointed and angry that the salesman did not disclose that there are only a few channels available in 4k. One's you'll never use! Eventually they will broadcast in 4k but according to the installer that was here today to install 4k that won'r be for a while. A year at least. btw I refused to get 4k genie from direct tv because I didn't want to pay $99 for nothing.

    I'm no TV expert but this thing is truly amazing . I cut the cord years ago and get most of the content through the net but with my antenna I get like 56 channels . The 4k content on Netflix and Amazon is absolutely amazing to me . Viewing angle is great can watch from just about anywhere in the room. I had the Geek Squad deliver and set it up and they were great well worth the price for exceptional service. Myself when shopping for this set I looked at the Oleds and Qleds and aside from being 5X the price and having very dark looking black not much difference for just watchability I preferred this set. Some of the money saved went for a nice Sony Surround receiver and I can add pieces as I go but for now with just the two Axiom M50 front speakers it sounds awesome!

    I love Samsung TVs and this replaced a 5 yr old 60" LCD (covered with Best Buy extended warranty). With a HD cable box and high speed Internet, the video quality is great - no pixelation or video degradation. Samsung's Smart Hub and apps allow you to watch Hulu, Netflix, etc. without adding an external connection. The sound is also good. External sound bar is not needed (I have one with sub-woofer and decided not to use it). Just go to settings and change sound to "amplify" as standard is insufficient. I once had a technical issue with my old TV and called Samsung customer service within the manufacturer warranty period. The rep remotely accessed my TV and easily fixed the issue. On a separate note, Best Buy extended warranty (Geek Squad) will spend a month and multiple tries to fix a broken TV. After that, they replace with a comparable TV. I have had my Samsung 65" TV for a month now and love it.

    Good for computer monitor. OK as everyday TV

    I use primarily as a computer monitor, along with 3 43" NU7100's. The results have been very good. No issues with maintaining PC output, as other Samsung's had a tendency to switch to different settings every time I turned the monitors off. Refresh rate with 4K is 60Hz, which is fine for me. Only issue is to get all multiple monitors to all run YCbCr444, which is probably more a video card limitation as opposed to the TV. For background, I'm using two GeForce GTX 1080 with SLI disabled (two monitors per card). On those occasions where I watch TV or Netflix, the output is OK, but I've seen better. But, then again, I got the 65" NU7100 from Bestbuy for $750.00. So, I've yet to see anything better in this price range. Even the TCL 65", which is a great buy, costs more than the NU7100. Bottom line, I recommend this TV, along with the 43" size for computer monitors, and if it is still on sale, you can't go wrong with the 65" for everyday use. If not on sale, look at the TCL.

    Do not buy if you like to watch football

    I rarely write reviews but here goes. Any object in motion on this TV is awful. I can't believe how bad the picture quality of sports actually was on this TV compared to my several year old Samsung plasma that just died the night before the Iron Bowl. I had to run out and buy this TV in a pinch. Big mistake. The slow motion picture quality, picture quality in between plays, and the quality of the score, chyrons, and other graphics was great. However, the actual video quality (the reason you actually buy a TV) was TERRIBLE. As soon as the ball is snapped in a football game the picture goes to crap. It's almost seizure inducing. You can't even make out the football when it's in the air. My old 60" class plasma had NO trouble producing crystal clear images and smooth video. This TV was a giant step down in my opinion. It is coming down off the wall and going back today. Not everyone needs all the crap smart TV functions. Someone, please just make a good TV with good hardware.

    What an upgrade from 9 year old 46" Sony

    Nine years ago i bought the state of the art new Sony HD 46" TV at Best Buy paid $,1,900 dollars back then, it's been a great TV for past 9 years, but last week the video card started causing color changes, i just had to turn off TV then turn it on again and maybe it would be fine for another 8 hours. I thought it was time to buy a new TV found this one and read the reviews and went down to my Best buy and bought it. Best Buy had it at my home this Sunday morning at 8:30am great service, i started un- boxing the TV had it setup in 30 minuets and had it on with my Cox Box and watching my Sunday shows. This Samsung 65" TV is a great upgrade from my old Sony 46" TV, the picture color is much better the sound is really a lot better, it's a real joy to be watching it today. I feel it's the best bang for the bucks i am very happy with it.

    Turns ON by itself, and other "minor" issues

    We were content with this tv for a couple of days even when it doesn't connect to 5G. Sound and images are good, BUT it keeps turning on randomly by itself. I disconnected it from the power one night, and it was ok for one day then it went back to the same problem. It is very frustrating to have a brand new tv (just bought it less than a month ago) with such a big issue (who wants to pay that for extra power when no one is using it). Another problem that we've encountered is the fact that if you are going to mount it to the wall, you are going to have to buy different screws because the ones that the mount brings doesn't work. I'll be exchanging this tv for a different brand by tomorrow. I decided to give 2 stars because I like the image and the sound.

    I purchased this TV to replace a failing 52" Projection model and have been very pleased with it so far. The picture is awesome and in my opinion just as good as many higher priced sets. The smart features are the best and easiest to use of any set I have owned. The only reason I gave 4 stars is in reference to the composite component connection which requires the use of a 3.5mm adapter (it comes with the TV) After using it a few times, it only gives a black and white picture on the screen. I know most people do not use composite connections anymore but I think it is important to include a reliable option for those that do need it. I also have had this problem with another set of different brand so I believe the manufacturers are not worrying too much about the reliability of composite connections these days.

    After about a month of research on purchasing an affordable 65 inch tv, I decided to get this one. I was so excited to start watching some movies on this but after about 20 minutes after I set it up it showed horrible backlight bleed in all four corners. I'm extremely frustrated because now I have to pack it back up and take it back to best buy. I don't even want to exchange it and it happens again. I was better off getting a cheap brand like tcl. I thought Samsung was a reliable brand but I guess I was wrong.

    A movie fan with a sports inclination I wanted a 4K TV larger than my 55 inch. Had a HD LG set that worked well for nearly a decade. Also, didn't want to spend a down payment on a house amount for the privilege of having 4K with HDR. The Samsung 65 inch model of NU7100 series met all my standards at a very modest $700. It is not a QLED much less an OLED but then with the money saved from not buying such state of art sets I can have an immense library for my modest Samsung. Color and quality are top notch and it is easy to setup and use. Working with a Bose Solo 5 Soundbar and a Bose universal remote that came with the soundbar. Added a 4K LG smart blu-ray player and for about $1,000 I have my 4K universe both easy on the pocket book and the eyes. All recommended.
