Our take on the Samsung UN65F7100

When it comes to TVs, big is beautiful, and Samsung's 65" UN65F7100 is a great example. The screen's ultra-slim bezel creates a virtually edgeless look that makes the picture seem even larger. It definitely gets your attention, but what's going on inside this TV is even more interesting.

Samsung UN65F7100

Beautiful design, brilliant picture

When it comes to TVs, big is beautiful, and Samsung's 65" UN65F7100 is a great example. The screen's ultra-slim bezel creates a virtually edgeless look that makes the picture seem even larger. It definitely gets your attention, but what's going on inside this TV is even more interesting.

A gem of a screen

The UN65F7100 is a 3D TV, and it comes with four pairs of glasses, but its appeal isn't limited to 3D fans. Why? Because displaying 3D accurately requires a top-notch screen. So, even if you don't care about 3D, that capability comes with a bonus: the sharpest, clearest 2D picture you've ever seen.

This model's LED backlight employs Samsung's Micro Dimming technology to produce a more accurate picture. The TV divides the image into multiple areas and applies the correct contrast levels to each area. The edge-mounted LEDs can actually dim independently based on the content in each scene. This is also a high-speed scanning backlight, which works hand-in-hand with the 240Hz screen refresh rate to take motion blur out of the picture.

This Smart TV will make you feel smart, too

The UN65F7100 makes finding great things to watch easier. Samsung's innovative Smart Hub organizes your favorite entertainment into five simple panels: On-TV, Movies and Shows, Social, Apps, and a panel for your personal photos, videos and music. You can actually ask the TV for recommendations while you're watching, like "what football games are on?" You speak into the microphone built into the touchpad remote, which feels more natural than talking to the TV screen. Plus, if you own a compatible Samsung smartphone or tablet, you can share pictures and videos stored on them and view them on this TV.

New for 2013 is a cool feature called TV View. It lets you mirror whatever's on the UN65F7100's screen on your Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone or Galaxy tablet. If you need to leave the room — like, maybe to fix a sandwich — you won't have to leave your entertainment behind. It's like whole-house television you can hold in your hand.

Awesome F7100

Jeff from Lewistown, Pa. on 2/20/2014

Awesome picture and awesome 3D picture, it's as close to the 8000 as you'll get.

Pros: Picture quality is awesome for this 65" TV, 3D quality blew me away it's awesome. Price is about right so that's not an issue, you'll enjoy this TV a lot.

Cons: Haven't found any so far and I'm about as picky as one can get, can't even say anything negative about the awesome remote!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Got the big TV the day before the big superbowl game.Tested the 3D feature and is was really cool. Set up was quick and easy. Still getting use to the remote.

Pros: Amazing picture quality. Nice narrow trim frame. Thin in depth so doesn't protrude far off the wal mount.

Cons: The stand is a little wobbly - ended up mounting it on the wall

Great TV!!!

tgg901 from Marietta, GA on 2/18/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First of all the TV came 2 days earlier then it was supposed to. Very surprised. This is exactly what I wanted. The picture is amazing!!!!! I have a Panny plasma and thought I would be disappointed but NOT!

Pros: Great picture and 3D is awesome. Speakers are ok but added a sound bar for much better sound.

Cons: Not crazy about the keypad and working with the internet. Sometimes when adding an address to look up it goes back to the TV. Maybe getting a keyboard will solve this issue.

Samsung UN657100 - Fantastic

Awesome TV from Decatur, AL on 2/18/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am absolutely in love with this TV. The setup was effortless with the help of my son-in-law. The picture is fantastic and looks like the people on the screen are in the room with you - up close and personal. The color, picture clarity and product quality are beyond compare. Well, I guess that by now you get the picture that I am completely satisfied with this Samsung TV and Crutchfield. The delivery was also extremely good .and I was very pleased with the price and I find the remote very easy to use.

Pros: Picture, Picture, Picture

Cons: None

65" Bliss

Diamond Dave from Richland WA on 1/16/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Love, Love, Love this TV. The picture is stunning and it is just what I wanted for my living room. Thanks Samsung and Thanks Crutchfield

Pros: Amazing picture, easy setup, user friendly, light weight for the size of tv it is. Could not be happier.

Cons: The remote is a little bit of a pain to use like other people have stated. It works well but wants you to use voice commands and it's a bit of a pain. It is good remote I just wish it had a key pad for entering channel numbers instead of having to scroll one channel at a time or holler out the channel number from across the this is a small point. I am going to configure my Logitech Harmony remote to control the TV I just haven't yet.


GotGarbage from Myrtle Beach, SC on 1/11/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

On August 2013 I purchased a Samsung 7100 smart TV .This is the first purchase of a Samsung product and most likely will be the last. No reflection on Crutchfield because from the beginning I contacted Samsung directly. I spent hours and days with Samsung online troubleshooting resetting and setting up the TV over and over. The problems are too numerous to mention so, I'll describe just a few. Wile watching a network channel the TV turns off and on by itself. The TV image freezes while watching a web site such as YouTube for a couple of hours and there is nothing you can do to get out of it but to unplug and plug the power cable. While watching a movie on Netflix the TV switches to a network channel for a couple of seconds then goes back to the movie. Finally to finish with a bang .when I click on the 3D button the bottom of the panel flicker. Samsung sent a TV repairman to my house. He replaced a board but, the problem continues. Then, the technician came to the conclusion that the TV needs a new panel. He put a request for the panel (this was before Christmas the TV is on the floor in scattered parts). A few weeks later I received a phone call from Samsung telling me that they don't have the parts to fix the TV ;therefore, I will have to wait for Crutchfield to get a replacement TV. I purchased a keyboard about 8 pair of glasses a camera for this TV and according to Samsung that's too bad they will not refund for those items.. The only good thing is the picture

Pros: Good bright picture.

Cons: Bad firmware/software. OS from the 1970s Browser from 1970s Oes not save the configuration..on a reset you need to reenter all info many times as you need to call service...and thats the first thing they make do..reset!!! reset!!! Remote needs a lot fo re-engineering. No parts available for repairs.

Very impressive television

GaryB from Cape Coral, FL on 1/10/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great TV! The picture is startlingly good. Hi def is really high def. Only limited by quality of signal input. Ample inputs. "Smart Hub" is fllexible and intuitive. Remote control functions easy to follow.

Pros: 3D capabillity, many inputs, optical audio output, innovative remote control, thin profile, but especially the exceptional picture. Connected to house wireless internet effortlessly.

Cons: There are so many otions in adjustmennt of picture and sound, it takes 170 pages of instructions to describe. I printed out the manual, since on screen ehlp is a little cumbersome. Non-HD signals are obvious due to the high native definition of the display.

Great TV, Awkward Programing

Dan B from Dallas, TX on 12/30/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The TV has a wonderful picture and lots of useful apps and options. For its size, it is very light and manageable. The way the system will only allow you to cycle through to various input devises in one direction is not ideal and required a workaround to make the system more user friendly. Otherwise, an excellent purchase.

Pros: Picture quality, and size

Cons: System is rigid in the way it allows use of input devices.

Samsung UN65F7100

Dave P from Ponte Vedra Beach Florida on 12/27/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Love the T.V. I replaced a 55 inch Samsung 6003 and the clarity is much better on this t.v. It took a little while to get use to the remote.. After working with it for a couple of hours I like it a lot. I love the smart t.v. and it was easy to learn. This was my first experience trying to use it. Can't wait for the FSU-Auburn game and the Super Bowl. I would recommend this product to any of my friends

Pros: Sharp picture with no blur even on fast moving Sports events.

Cons: Nothing once you master the remote and using the smart t.v. system.

Samsung UN657100 is a great TV

AlanK from Lake Worth, Fl on 12/24/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This TV is great. 3D looks great, smart TV works well. Watching Football and Basketball is amazing.

Pros: The picture is super clear.

Cons: The remote control, the pad is a little difficult to use.

Wonderful tv, seamless purchase at great price

JonC from Palm Springs, CA on 12/24/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Wonderful picture, great smart features. Used with TiVo and worked out of the box seamlessly. Crutchfield purchase transaction was excellent, delivered on time and no issues of damage to the box or contents inside. Very happy with transaction after two weeks install.

Pros: Very bright and clear picture on cable tv, even better with Blu-Ray. Screen Size perfect for my needs.

Cons: None as yet. Use universal remote and surround sound, so have not used the provided remote or tv speakers.

Beyond satisfied

Sugawulf 72 from Ruston, LA on 12/24/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great TV, picture quality is superb. Excellent customer service . As for the APS they are just ok nothing great , and surfing the net is slooooooooooooow. But hey I purchased the TV for picture quality not the so called SmartTv features.

Pros: Great picture quality, and it looks great hanging on the wall.

Cons: Internet surfing is slow, the so called universal remote is a joke!

Great TV+Better Customer Service

Brian from Cold Spring Harbor on 12/20/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

TV is Great. Has allot of functionality and the picture is perfect. Crutchfield service was even better. I received a set that had a faint black band about 6 inches by 18. Called Crutchfield and they immediately sent up a new set which works perfectly.

Pros: Great Picture

Cons: Cant get the remote to work with my Tivo but to be fair, I have not researched if there is a way to make it happen.

Samsung UN65F7100

jcampagna42 from Greensboro, NC on 12/17/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to set up, if you overlook the syntax errors in the instructions. One would think a major corporation like Samsung would have someone who was English language proficient review the material before approving it for print. Doesn't reflect well on them. All that aside, love the set.



Fabuluous Picture

JamesF from Crozet, VA on 12/16/2013

I could not be more pleased. The quality of the picture is fabuluous even for programs that are not in HD. Since I do not have high speed internet, I don't use some of the features, but I still think it provides the value. I liked dealing with Crutchfield sales much more than experiences with another well known chain. Delivery was as promised and set up happened quickly.

Pros: Quality of picture meaning clarity and colors

Cons: The coordination between the TV and my sound bar is not as seamless as I hoped. Also, you still need the TV remote when you turn on the TV with the Dish remote.

Samsung 65" 7100 series

John B from Sheboygan, WI on 10/22/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Awesome picture and look. Low profile mount makes the tv look like a picture hanging from the wall. Enhances the look of the room. I am the envy of the neighborhood with this. Huge upgrade from the 46" that I had in the corner of the room. Mounting on the wall made a huge difference in the look and feel of the room. The TV was easy to set up. The remote is very intuitive and easy to master. Crutchfield support was helpful in determining what was the best fit for my needs. Thank you Brooke!

Pros: Samsung does not disappoint with quality. The picture is unbeliveable

Cons: Locating studs in the wall behind 3/4" redwood tongue and groove paneling. Once I found 1 the install became relatively easy.

Good Picture, Very difficult to operate

JackW from Doylestown, Pa on 9/28/2013

Our fourth TV from Crutchfield, we have always enjoyed excellent Crutchfield service. However the new Samsung TV is very difficult for us to operate. The new "wand" is a mystery, it is very difficult to go where you want to go. We have spent so much time trying to "guess" what the "wand" will do next. We have spent an enormous amount of time trying to find a station or navigate the TV screen prompts. Actually we have had to stop using the new TV and have gone back to our old TV in order to watch some shows. We will keep trying, trying to "guess" what the wand wants next but the navigation of the new Samsung takes a lot of the enjoyment away from having a new TV set.

Pros: nice picture once you get to where you want to go

Cons: We think it should be easy to sit down, turn on your TV and select a station to watch. Not so with the new Samsung. Navigation is time consuming. The so-called Wand is very difficult to use and not intuitive at all. If we had known how difficult it would be to just turn on the set and go to a favorite channel we would not have made the purchase. We have other TV sets that we would like to upgrade but the device used to control the set will be a big decision maker.

Crutchfield response on 10/2/2013 We forwarded this review to our Technical Support team for follow-up. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.


PaulL from MD on 9/26/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Love the TV. A significant upgrade from my 4 year old 46 inch Sony. Setup was easy but need some play-time to familiarize myself with the menu and consider connection options. Chose to stay with my universal remote as the Samsung Touchpad did not interface readily with Bose system and offered limited functionality. Excellent sensitivity for over the air broadcast. Smart function works great with my wired LAN. 3D is good from Samsung DVD player while 2D to 3D function has lower picture quality from cable sources.

Pros: Excellent picture quality

Cons: Touch remote provide has limit functionality with AV system

Samsung 65" 7100 Review

L from Southern California, CA on 8/18/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very good television and options even though similar products may save you a few hundred dollars. I have always wanted a Samsung LED TV and have had LG Plasma, Vizio LED, and Toshiba Plasma. Obviously, this being the newest of all 3 this is the most advanced. The on screen apps are nice as well as all the "smart" features. I haven't utilized the 3D feature yet, but i purchased this tv because of the processor and size, where my other choice was the 8000 60" Samsung.

Pros: Size Color Weight Intuitiveness Ease to use/learn

Cons: Price

Samsung UN65F7100

Steve B from Fayetteville, Ga. on 8/13/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had purchased a UN65F8000 that was damaged in a lightning storm and had to be replaced. When I did so I chose the UN65F7100 because the UN65F8000 had way more apps than I would ever use and that was a good choice. The picture is every bit as good as the 8000 model, at least to my eyes, and it much more user friendly.

Pros: Excellent picture quality and easier to use.

Cons: None that I can see.

Great Decision on Samsung TV

FrankC from Columbus, Oh on 7/22/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I painstakingly reviewed the new HD sets for 2 months. I decided I was going to upgrade my 55 inch Sony in the family room with a 65" and move the Sony to my bedroom and replace the 27" inch RCA that just won't die. I had it down to Sharp 70", and the Panasonic plasma that CNET says is extraordinary buy. I was going Sharp until I viewed all three sets together. Sharp appeared overly bright and I own a new Epson Projection system that uses active 3D. The Samsung glasses are compatible with my Epson 5020 projector. Sharp was not and Panasonic was also compatible. Despite rave reviews my taste is towards a brighter tv that pops. Liked the Panasonic but felt it not bright enough for my family room. Crutch field offered great price and low pressure sales approach that is uncommon with the Internet dealers. Can you say white glove delivery charge? I was turned off by the bait and switch price schemes and fine print delivery disclaimers at other internet dealers (beware). I purchased the Samsung UN65F7100 from Buddy at Crutchfield and could not be happier. Also got the Samsung Soundbar with Soundshare Bluetooth connect. Sweet!,, no wires clean look hanging on wall with full-bodied sound for my 20X28 family room.

Pros: None

Cons: The 75" is > twice the money of 65" or would have gone that direction.

I love my TV. I just wanted to say that Crutchfield is the way to go if you are ordering on line. Very professional and no delays or problems. Thanks Crutchfield. I would definitely order from you guys if you carry wahat I want.



Great picture for the price

guillermop from Seattle, WA on 6/23/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a good TV, with some serious drawbacks. The smart stack on the TV leaves a lot to be desired, and the initial setup is pretty bad. It can be tough to calibrate just right too, as it's easy to get to point of crushing blacks or washing out colors. I have enough smart boxes plugged into it, that the smart stack is redundant as well.

Pros: Vivid bright picture

Cons: Difficult to calibrate, especailly brightness and contract. Smart stack is mediocre, very buggy (white square dancing on screen, power cycling)

5 stars!

Mac! from Paddy's on 4/20/2013

My family and I couldn't be any happier than we are with our new TV. We got this Samsung hooked up at home, and it looks amazing! When I got the DISH Hopper I knew it was time to start looking for another TV, as the Hopper gives me HD to four different sets, and we only had three at the time. I work at DISH and one of my coworkers made a couple recommendations to me, this Samsung being first on the list, and I couldn't imagine making a better choice. The sports and movies look amazing, and the on-board sound system is the best I ever heard right out of the box. The best part is that it has finally ended the problems we had with DVR timer conflicts, having only three TVs hooked up.

LED Edge-Lighting w/ Micro Dimming: Samsung's LED Edge-Lighting technology w/ Micro Dimming shows greater detailed contrast across the screen with richer, brighter colors, whiter whites, and deeper blacks. The television's white LEDs are arranged along the left and right edges of the screen and a proprietary light guide is used to focus its luminance inwards towards the middle of the screen for a more uniform brightness. Micro Dimming uses a proprietary algorithm that adjusts brightness and contrast in select parts of the screen based on the image being displayed. This system provides provides a more natural color representation with ultra-sharp blacks, deeper reds & greens, and brighter whites.

Ultra Clear Panel: Sometimes you can't keep sunlight or house lights from shining right on your TV screen. With Samsung's Ultra Clear Panel, you can still get an amazing picture even with reflective light. Ultra Clear Panel absorbs most ambient light and virtually eliminates reflections. Ultra Clear Panel also helps make colors more vibrant with deeper blacks and enhanced contrast for crisper images and excellent shadow detail.

Clear Motion Rate 720: Clear Motion Rate (CMR) is Samsung's more comprehensive and accurate measure for how well the LED-LCD TV can display fast-moving images. Previously, motion clarity was expressed simply by the refresh rate, measured in Hz. CMR, however, takes into account all three factors that contribute to motion clarity: panel refresh rate, image processor speed and backlight technology. CMR is measured by determining the thinnest line a TV can display in a moving image. The thinner the line, the higher the CMR rating, and the clearer the picture you'll enjoy on the screen.

  • Panel Refresh Rate (Hz): Samsung's screen refresh rate (240Hz) significantly improves motion detail and resolution by sampling the image more frequently, leading to smoother, more fluid movement.
  • Image Processor (Auto Motion Plus): Samsung's proprietary Auto Motion Plus image processing technology is faster and more responsive than conventional image processors, as it interpolates intermediate frames to smooth out the image.
  • LED Backlight Technology: Samsung's Edge-Lighting Backlight technology regulates output precisely in synchronization with the screen refresh to lessen the time it is lit, reducing ghosting and motion blur.

Auto Motion Plus: Auto Motion Plus removes blur and judder from scenes with large amounts of rapid movement to provide a clearer picture. Auto Motion Plus reduces blur so that action movies, sports and video games have enhanced clarity. Advanced panels and unique backlight technology combine with proprietary algorithms to reduce the response time and yield a more accurate image reproduction with faster onscreen motion. Auto Motion Plus can be set to Clear, Standard, Smooth, Custom, or Off.

Wide Color Enhancer Plus: Wide Color Enhancer Plus allows you to see picture color the way the director originally intended. Witness the entire RGB spectrum brought to life on your screen to bring you exceptionally vibrant, yet natural-looking images faithful to the director's original intent.

Motion Lighting: The TV automatically adjusts the brightness of the screen in response to the brightness of the room. In bright light, the screen brightens. In dim light, the screen dims.

HDTV Tuner: The TV has built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and Digital Cable (QAM) tuners, so you don't need a separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV or unencrypted Digital Cable signals.

1080p Resolution: The LED-LCD television displays all inputs at a resolution of 1080p (1920 x 1080). The television's HDMI and component video inputs will accept 1080p (24/60Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i video signals.

  • HDMI (v.1.4): The Samsung LED-LCD TV features four HDMI 1.4 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.
  • Component Video: The Samsung LED-LCD TV features a single component video input. The TV's component video input can also be used as a composite video input (480i only).
