Samsung UE49MU7000 review
|Review: September 2017|
In a nutshell: The Samsung MU7000 is one of the best 49-inch TVs you can buy in 2017. The price has fallen since launch, making it very affordable for the discerning viewer. And with premium looks, clutter-free cable management, superb audio and Samsung's superb Smart TV system, it's a great choice for family viewing.
Today's best buy: Samsung UE49MU7000 from SmartTeck (£956.60)
Samsung MU7000 49" review
The 49" version of the MU7000 Series 7 TV is positioned just above the company's mid-range Series 6 models such as the MU6400 and MU6470. It costs a few hundred pounds more, but the picture quality is noticeably better and we'd say it's worth the extra if you're looking to get the most out of your viewing experience. Audio quality is better too, thanks to the dedicated woofer pushing the total power output to 40W.
The silver A-style branch stand is unusually wide, so do measure carefully before you buy this model.

I am looking for a 4k tv mostly used for gaming no bigger than 49" and a £800 budget. Can you recommend one if there is one better than this please. Thank you.

Asked by Jimmy

iv had this tv for 6 months now pic quality is great its in my bed room and the pic is really bright even on movie mode so iv turned brightness down having a few issues with tvplus though , uhd isnt any better than 1080p not on the 49" tv anyway, great interactive apps which work really well apart from tvplus as iv mentioned internet easy to access from the app selection which is on the bottom of the screen.love the smart remote just wish it was like the LG tvs one and be able to use it like a magic wond like the wii game remote,think samsung and LG should get together and probley make the best tv in the world has ever seen ,im looking at getting the 65" tv for my living room.

Previously i bought an ue49mu6400 and mu6470 about 5 times each couldn't fix the back light bleed when watching in the dark the black bar shows a lot of screen bleed on the top and bottom cant see it when the light is on then i give up and decided to try out the ue49mu7000 i found no backlight bleed the picture and the sound quality is excellent.
