Overview

Our take on the Samsung UN55KU7000

If your HDTV is more than a few years old, you'll be amazed by the enhanced picture quality and features of 4K models like Samsung's UN55KU7000. Its super-sharp 4K picture has four times the detail of even the best HD sets, and its streaming video capabilities and other built-in web apps make this sleek, slender TV anything but a "boob tube."

Step up your TV game with 4K and HDR

Samsung UN55KU7000

If your HDTV is more than a few years old, you'll be amazed by the enhanced picture quality and features of 4K models like Samsung's UN55KU7000. Its super-sharp 4K picture has four times the detail of even the best HD sets, and its streaming video capabilities and other built-in web apps make this sleek, slender TV anything but a "boob tube."

This Ultra HD TV also supports HDR (High Dynamic Range), which means it has advanced contrast and color capabilities, too. Samsung's Active Crystal Color feature uses crystal-like technology to increase color range and brightness. One of the best things about HDR is that, unlike the fine details of 4K, you can easily see HDR's picture improvements from across a room.

Samsung gives you more ways to enjoy 4K and HDR content

When your TV has a picture that's as crystal clear as the UN55KU7000's, you'll want to feed it the highest quality signals you can find. Hands down, the best available 4K source is a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player. Several studios have released movies on Ultra HD Blu-ray, and most of those discs are also encoded with HDR. There are several 4K web streaming options, including Netflix®, Amazon Instant Video, and UltraFlix. And Amazon and Netflix feature HDR on many of their 4K offerings.

As lots of 4K TV owners have learned, you don't need native 4K content to enjoy a terrific picture. Samsung made 4K upconversion a top priority as they developed the video processing circuitry for the UN55KU7000. Their UHD Upscaling automatically upconverts any signal to match the screen's 4K resolution. All of your current video sources — Blu-ray player, cable or satellite TV box, game console — will look better than ever.

A Smart TV that's smarter than most

This TV's brain is a speedy Quad-Core processor that lets you browse the web without having to interrupt what you're watching. Besides surfing the web you can do things like multitask or use one app while downloading another. Whether your connection is wired or wireless, you can do a quick web search while you watch movies and TV shows, and enjoy TV while you chat with friends and family online. Samsung's on-board selection of streaming video and music apps is second to none.

The AllShare™ Play feature lets you wirelessly access and stream content from any compatible device. If you own a Samsung Galaxy smartphone or Tab, you can share movies, photos, and music via the UN55KU7000. Your Wi-Fi® network lets you do things like "toss" photos from your phone or tablet to the screen with the swipe of a finger. Or push streaming video like Netflix movies from device to screen.

Unsure if your network can handle demanding tasks like 4K streaming? Check out our wireless router buying guide. If you haven't upgraded your hardware in the last few years, a new router will offer big improvements in range and speed.

    You can't beat the picture quality at this price level. Overall very satisfied with purchase.

    Pros: Easy set up. Great picture quality. Easy to use smart tv functions. Affordable.

    Cons: Not as bright as the ultra 4K tv's but can't complain for the money! Don't like the tv stand. Stand leaves tv tilted a little facing upwards. Had to put a shim under rear of stand.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I love this HDTV! Great picture, right to the edge, great sound. Was concerned about not going with the 8000 series initially, a big price jump there, but no concerns now- the 7000 series is excellent.

    Pros: Price, picture, sound, sleek.

    Cons: Nada!

    Great picture. Easy setup.

    Superb picture and functionality

    Pros: Excellent picture and overall functionality

    Cons: Can't get surround sound system to work with it and would really appreciate assistance with setup. Not sure why it was so easy on my other TV's - it may have something to do with the cable adapter but am not sure.

    Excellent picture, design and stylish

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The clarity of this TV is great. The available options are enough to create a great surround sound in our living room. Easy control, stylish design and very simple to mount on the wall. The family enjoys watching movies and tv shows once again but in a very realistic view.

    Pros: Audio and video options Clarity of picture Easy to use remote Easy to setup and navigate the settings

    Cons: Blacks are still a little fuzzy, especially noticeable with Harry Potter, could be a setting adjustment.

    Amazing Picture

    Esther from College Station, TX on 12/31/2016

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I'm loving my new Samsung 55" TV. Just replaced a 15 year old Sony and the picture difference is unbelievable. Picture is sharp and characters look more realistic. I can't comment on the sound since I have it hooked into a surround sound system. Set up was simple. My only complaint is that if you use the stand the hook that hold the wires in the back is not strong enough and comes off easily. Will have to devise something to hide the wires.

    Pros: Great picture

    Cons: Wire holder comes off.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Great television for a great price. Easy set up, completed it in less than 30 Minutes. Great service from Crutchfield with quick delivery. Delivery service called to make a convenient delivery time. Picture jumps off the screen, sound is good for TV speakers. Replaced a 9 YO 55" Samsung Plasma, upgrade is significant. Easily connected the television to wireless. Menu easy to follow for Amazon, Netflix, etc. Recommend this TV for the price.

    Pros: Picture quality, sound is good for a TV

    Cons: Remote takes a bit to learn, however the smaller size is better.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The setup was handled by a close friend, so I can't comment on that aspect. He also helped us selecting the correct screen setup & synched the audio to video. Once all was done we tried different programs to view-sports first, then broadcasters, then nature program, movies on Directv, DVD's, literally any subject matter we could think of ! The picture is fantastic-clear, vivid, little chatter, fast motion is flawless ! Viewed and older movie on DVD (Avatar)-couldn't believe the detail & color! Our old TV ( Mitsubishi projection 10 yrs. old) wasn't even close. Thank you Samsung.

    Pros:

    Cons: Remote is tricky to use. Our friend programmed the TV to our Directv remote, to cut down on the use of the remote.

    Great TV!

    So far so good. Haven't used it a lot, but the initial setup was a breeze and it looked great out of the box. For the price and features you get, it would be hard to beat. There are higher end sets, and cheaper sets, but for me this struck the best value for dollar balance.

    Video Features

    4K/HDR: The Samsung UHD series TV combines its 4K resolution with HDR (High Dynamic Range) video capability for the ultimate in picture quality. 4K delivers 4x higher resolution than current 1080p high-definition TVs; while HDR provides greater brightness, color, and detail. As a result, you get a truly immersive experience for all your favorite movies and TV shows.

    • Ultra 4K Resolution w/ UHD Upscaling: See more on TV than ever before with over 8 million individual pixels (3,840 x 2,160) compared to about 2 million (1,920 x 1,080) on your 1080p HDTV. The Samsung UHD series LED-LCD TV has a display resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 (4K) and will display all video at that resolution, regardless of input signal, thanks to UHD upscaling. UHD Upscaling delivers the complete Ultra-HD picture experience with a proprietary process including signal analysis, noise reduction, UHD upscaling, and detail enhancement to seamlessly upconvert SD, HD, or full-HD content to Ultra-HD-level picture quality.
    • High Dynamic Range (HDR Premium): High Dynamic Range technology dramatically brightens every image and enhances contrast, so even the most subtle details come out of hiding. HDR delivers a much higher level of contrast between light and dark to produce an image that is more realistic and closer to what the content creator imagined. This increased contrast reveals the subtle nuances of the image, from detailed blacks and shadows to the brightest whites and colors, plus greater depth. 
    Note: Please use a premium high speed HDMI cable with 18 Gbps and above to view HDR content.

    Active Crystal Color w/ UHD Dimming:  The TV utilizes a crystal-like pure color technology, called "Active Crystal Color", to create a wider color gamut for colors that look more life-like. It also uses UHD Dimming technology to optimize contrast, color and sharpness for true-to-life image quality. UHD Dimming precisely scans an incredible amount of zones across the entire image and adjusts brightness to deliver deeper darks and brighter whites.

    MR 120 + Auto Motion Plus: The Samsung UHD LED-LCD TV combines its 60Hz native panel refresh rate with Samsung's proprietary MR 120 & Auto Motion Plus image processing technology, which is faster and more responsive than conventional image processors, as it interpolates intermediate frames to smooth out the image. MR 120 & Auto Motion Plus helps to remove blur and judder from scenes with large amounts of rapid movement to provide a clearer picture. MR 120 & Auto Motion Plus reduces blur so that action movies, sports and video games have enhanced clarity. Advanced panel and unique backlight technology combine with proprietary algorithms to reduce the response time and yield a more accurate image reproduction with faster onscreen motion.

    Video Inputs: The Samsung UHD series LED-LCD TV offers Ultra-HD, high-definition, and standard definition video inputs.

    • HDMI 2.0a: The Samsung UHD TV features three HDMI 2.0a inputs to connect to your Blu-ray/DVD player, Satellite/Cable receiver, or AV receiver. In addition, any HDMI input can be used to connect a PC to this TV. The television's HDMI inputs will accept 3,840 x 2,160 (24/60Hz), 1080p (24/60Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i video signals.
      • HDCP 2.2: HDCP 2.2 is supported by all of the TV's HDMI inputs; HDCP is short for "High bandwidth Digital Content Protection" and is used for 4K video copyright protection for compatibility with 4K Blu-ray players and 4K Satellite/Cable providers.
      • 4:4:4 Color Subsampling: All HDMI inputs will support up to 4:4:4 (50/60p) chroma subsampling for full color data rendering of 4K video. 4:2:2 (50/60p) and 4:2:0 (50/60p) are also supported by all HDMI inputs. With 4:4:4 color, luminance (brightness) and chroma (color) are sampled at the same rate, resulting in an RGB color palette as big as the video sampling rate for a video image with more total colors, plus greater color accuracy and detail. You must enable 4:4:4 color subsampling by turning on the "UHD Color" setting within the TV's on-screen menu.
    • Component/Composite Video: The Samsung LED-LCD TV features a single component video input which will accept 1080p (24/60Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i video signals. The component video input can also be used as a composite video input (480i only).
    Note: The TV feature a single RF-type coaxial input for connecting an external indoor/outdoor antenna. The unit has built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) tuner, so you don't need a separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV or unencrypted Digital Cable signals (up to 1080i).

    Picture Control: You can make the following adjustments for an optimum picture. The TV's picture adjustments can be made for a particular AV input or for all inputs.

    • Picture Sizes: You can choose one of the following screen sizes - 16:9 (16:9 widescreen format), 4:3 (4:3 standard format), Zoom (magnifies 16:9 pictures vertically), or Custom (magnifies or shrink 16:9 pictures vertically and/or horizontally). The Picture size is fixed for video and still images displayed natively in 3840 x 2160 (4K).
    • Picture Modes: Picture Modes apply preset adjustments to the picture. Select from Dynamic (increases the brightness of the screen), Standard (suitable for a normal environment), Natural (useful for reducing eye strain), or Movie (darkens the screen and reduces glare).
    • Manual Picture Settings: The TV has several options for manually adjusting the picture quality. Manually adjust Backlight (adjusts the brightness of the LED backlight), Contrast (increases or decreases the contrast between dark and light areas of the picture), Brightness (adjusts the brightness level of the picture) Sharpness (sharpens or dulls the edges of objects), Color (adjusts the color saturation of the picture), and Tint (adjusts the amount of green and red in a picture).
    • Expert Settings:  The TV also offers more advanced picture adjustments for expert fine tuning. Fine tune the Dynamic Contrast (adjusts the screen contrast for optimal contrast), RGB (displays the Red/Green/Blue color for making find adjustments to the hue and saturation), Color Space (adjusts the range of colors available to create the image), White Balance (adjusts the color temperature for more natural picture colors), and Gamma (adjusts the primary color red/green/blue intensity). Make adjustments to Color Tone (adjusts the overall color tone of the televisions using Cool/Normal/Warm 1/Warm 2 presets), Digital Clean View (reduces any static and ghosting that may appear on the screen), HDMI Black Level (adjusts the screen depth via black levels), and Smart LED (controls the brightness of individual areas on the screen to maximize contrast automatically).
    • Film, Sports, & Games Modes: The TV can be set to automatically sense and process film signals and adjust the picture from optimum quality. The television can also be set to Sports mode which optimizes viewing for a more realistic sporting event. In addition, there is a Game mode which is designed specifically for gaming, and not normal TV viewing.

    Audio Features

    Optical Digital Output (Dolby Digital & DTS Compatible): The TV's optical digital output terminal will transmit Dolby Digital & DTS (when available) or 2 channel PCM. The digital optical output terminal only sends an audio signal in Dolby Digital or DTS when receiving Dolby Digital or DTS surround sound from a digital broadcast channel through the tuner, network apps, HDMI inputs, or USB ports.

    Note: This TV does not contain any analog audio inputs or outputs.

    ARC (Audio Return Channel): The Audio Return Channel within the television's HDMI 3 input enables the TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data "upstream" to an A/V receiver; increasing user flexibility and eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection. This feature allows audio to be sent from the television to your A/V receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio/video to the television. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to the TV. ARC allows audio from the TV tuner, Network connection, inserted USB device, HDMI inputs, or any analog connected device to be heard through your ARC compatible AV receiver via the television's HDMI ARC input. The audio from the TV's tuner, HDMI inputs, network connection, and USB ports can pass as Dolby Digital or 2ch PCM.

    Note: Both the television and the receiver must support ARC for this function to work properly. When connecting an A/V receiver that is compatible with Audio Return Channel (ARC), connect it to the TV's HDMI 3 input. If connecting a system that is incompatible Audio Return Channel (ARC), an additional audio connection via Digital Audio Out (Optical) is necessary.

    DTS Premium & Studio Sound: The Samsung LED-LCD TV employs DTS Premium & Studio Sound processing which will decode DTS-encoded content, such as TV programming, Blu-ray movies, and streaming media, as well as processes stereo content to deliver an optimized virtual surround sound experience with enhanced bass response, clear dialog, and consistent volume levels through the TV speakers.
