Samsung UE55MU7000 review

 Review: May 2017  

Rating: 5 stars

In a nutshell: The Samsung UE55MU7000 is a cost-effective way to enjoy HDR1000 on a big screen. Cheaper than the MU8000 and QLED models, it still gives you superb picture quality, premium design, clutter-free cable management, and Samsung's superb Smart TV system. Highly recommended!


Samsung MU7000 review

Positioned at the bottom of Samsung's high-end range for 2017, the MU7000 is the same as the Samsung MU8000, but with a different stand and a less effective anti-reflective filter.

The silver branch stand is wider, so you'll need to check it will fit on your furniture, but it retains the clutter-free cable management system of the MU8000 and is just as nice, just different.

The black filter doesn't make a huge difference either, and in fact, you'll struggle to spot much of a difference in picture quality between the MU7000 and MU8000. It still has the 10-bit colour, local dimming, refined motion control and high peak brightness that make all of Samsung's high-end TVs so impressive.

What you will notice when comparing the MU7000 vs MU8000 is that the 55MU7000 costs £200 less, making it a very cost effective and attractive option.

Also check out the Samsung MU7070, which is almost the same as the MU7000, but finished in Titan grey instead of silver.

Stand Measurement?

Asked by BobH from UK on 5th Oct 2017
I was looking at the 49" and 55" model but I am confused about the stand measurement. I like the spaced out legs rather than the central stand of the 8000 series. If there is anybody out there with the 55" 7000 series model who could measure the distance between the two pairs of legs and the width of each so that I can be sure it will fit on my tv cabinet.

Reply by SCOTT from UK on 19th Jan 2018
Don't worry about the space between the legs as Samsung has this covered with extra slots that are closer together for smaller TV units. Hope this helps.

Reply by Michal from NI on 21st Jan 2018
From what I heard on yt review. The space between the legs is around 90 cms.

Abysmal viewing angles, anywhere other than directly in front and the black starts to turn grey and the colours either fade or almost invert.
I've tried many settings but the contrast is just plain weird; light scenes are OK but slightly darker scenes and black takes over, resulting in a gloomy dark picture where details are hidden in the blackness.
Non HD content is very ugly indeed, my older Samsung LE46A656 managed non HD and full HD much better, with a balanced and nicely detailed image.
I'm really underwhelmed by this TV and am going to ask for a refund or swap out to a completely different model.

It's early days yet but I feel I have to mention the flaw in this TV - the changes in contrast and colour when even a few degrees off-axis are unacceptable for me. It looks good if you are sat DIRECTLY in front, but move not very far off axis and the blacks and colour wash out. I should have taken more notice of the reviews, but I've never experienced off axis black level changes like this on other TVs. Perhaps I've been lucky until now, but the low score is because this problem is a deal-breaker for me because, not unreasonably it isn't possible to sit more than a few people directly in front of the set.

Reply by Tom from United Kingdom on 22nd Oct 2017
You've hit the nail on the head. I completely agree about the unacceptable drop in image quality when not directly in front.
