PROS

  • The UNJU7100 series' local dimming LED backlight delivers deep blacks in challenging dark movie scenes.
  • Colors on Samsung's affordable 4K TV offering are for the most part accurate.
  • The 3D performance of the UNJU7100 series sets is about as good as the company's more expensive models.

CONS

  • While contrast on UNJU7100 series is good overall, you can get better performance at a lower price from other brands.
  • Contrast and color tend to fade when viewing the Samsung from off-center seats.
  • Samsung doesn't provide 3D glasses with UNJU7100 series sets.
Among Samsung's many 4K TV lines, the UNJU7100 Series perhaps provides the biggest bang per buck. The screens in this series are flat, rather than curved, and they feature a local dimming LED backlight to boost contrast and improve screen uniformity. Samsung’s external OneConnect box serves to future-proof the set’s connectivity, and its Smart Hub GUI serves up a wide variety of streaming options, including 4K programs from Netflix and Amazon. The only real downsides are a lack of compatibility with High Dynamic Range and Wide Color Gamut content, which Samsung’s higher-end SUHD models support. The TV is available in screen sizes from 40 to 78 inches.

This is a great TV for movies. The blacks are pretty deep, and the uniformity is good, too.

It balances a not-too-crazy price with commendable picture quality, beautiful design, oodles of features and a healthy dose of future-readiness, for what I'm guessing will be Samsung's best 4K TV value of 2015.
