40" Smart LED 4K Ultra HD TV with HDR (2018 model)
Our take on the Samsung UN40NU7100 by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
Ready to upgrade from HD?
If your old HDTV is looking tired and faded, now's a good time to make the move to 4K. The 40" Samsung UN40NU7100 offers picture quality and smart TV conveniences that seem miraculous for a sub-$500 TV. Its super-crisp 4K picture has four times the detail of even the best HD sets.
And with support for HDR (High Dynamic Range), you'll notice enhanced color and contrast on HDR-encoded content. This is one of Samsung's most affordable 2018 4K TVs, but its vivid color and picture highlights make typical non-4K TVs pale in comparison.
A jump in picture quality for everything you watch
When you unbox the UN40NU7100 you'll want to start watching right away. The TV's built-in set of streaming apps makes it easy. If you're an Amazon Prime subscriber, you can start watching gorgeous 4K shows and movies right away — for free!
Another streaming service with loads of 4K/HDR content is Netflix®. But the best available 4K source is a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player. Hollywood will release hundreds more movies on Ultra HD Blu-ray this year, and most of those discs will also be HDR-enhanced.
But you don't need native 4K content to be knocked out by the UN40NU7100's picture. Samsung's UHD Engine automatically upconverts any signal to match the screen's 4K resolution. All your current video sources will look better than ever.
Speedy web apps and streaming, no waiting
The UN40NU7100's speedy Quad-Core processor lets you browse the web without having to interrupt what you're watching. Whether your connection is wired or wireless, you can switch between apps, stream content, and multi-task much faster than with previous smart TVs. Samsung's on-board selection of streaming video and music apps is second to none.
