I bought our Samsung TV at December 2018, the size is so perfect and match with our living room, we love it all, and recommended to our best friends, so cool!

Samsung quick to blame customers for tv fault
After only 3 months since purchase vertical and horizontal lines just suddenly appeared on screen. Technician came out and said this is due to a thermal crack (behind the front glass panel) and that a severe blow/knock to the TV would cause this type of damage. Samsung will not honour warranty, as they say damage caused by customer. I live alone and the TV has not been touched or knocked in any way so it is most definitely a fault in the TV. I proceeded to do some internet research and have found many posts from customers who have experienced the exact same problem whilst watching their Samsung TV and they too received the same response from Samsung. I am now stuck with a faulty TV. Be warned, their Warranty is worthless!

Great look and quality finish. Samsung OS is smooth and has all the Apps you need. The remote is a little boring and is not compatible with the smart remote unfortunately but that is probably the only downside. Great sound with a little bass.
Huge screen, tiny compromises, but worth the price
Great Picture and easy to install on the wall
Bought at Harvey Norman in Jan 20202 and so far so good, it meets all our requirements and the smart features and apps are easy to use. Netflix button on remote is a good feature
Very disappointed with internet connectivity and it doesn’t support PVR
I bought this to upgrade my old TV as I thought this was good value for money.
However I am very disappointed with internet connectivity as it turns out this doesn’t support 5GHz and it does support 2.4GHz only. It means that it will provide a very slow performance when it connects to the internet. As a result, I am not able to watch Netflix as it’s too slow and it's buffering frequently. In my opinion, it should support 5GHz and it’s very common these days and I bought Samsung Series 6 - UA60J6200 4 years ago and which is another entry level ...and even this one does support 2.4GHz and 5GHz. So, I thought that this model does support as well which was wrong. Also, this RU7100 series does not have an extended personal video recorder (PVR) which is just another disappointment. So, I really don't understand why Samsung removed good features compared to the Series 6 for the entry level.

Not the best tv on the market but most certainly not the worst. Nice picture user freindly settings . Very smart remote control with functional buttons . Overall a great user freindly tv
Just what I was looking for. So far, so good. Best Value at $1k
I am not a TV expert but I do thoroughly examine my options.
This tv is 65' and it has utube, NetFlicks, Prime, stan a web browser and a bunch of other streaming platforms built in. TV pwr up and all apps start up pretty quick and it allows you to load other (streaming) apps if you want - now running disney - all ok. So far, it has done everything we have asked of it - and pretty well. Menus, navigation and the remote are fine and functional although really needed more space around the navigation buttons on the remote.
The free to air onlin...e (7-9-10, ABC, SBS ) channels menus appear differently to my Roku Telstra box but again still fine. (BTW Roku Telstra box lay out is better). The wi-fi is sufficient to view HD utube and movies all day, with only minimal occasional buffering and no freezing or pixellation at all (waiting for the NRL to start to test properly) - buffering seemingly only when our BB is impaired. I have had to reset the wi-fi once. It appears that it doesnt like low quality broadband. (I suggest returning to other mediams if your bb slows, gets overloaded or starts breaking up. (It seems to hunt settings changes if the BB does not go but this causes your link setting to perish (seemling)) which means resetting WIFI is needed. At $1k it is the best value I could find and I am not disappointed at this time. If it lasts, I'll be happy. To me, the picture quality is perfectly fine. We don't deliberately search out 4k stuff to watch, so not sure how it would cope although I think that I've run some 4k drone footage and it was fine.. Cannot really watch dvds on it, (too low def) If there is any up-scaling I cant see it - although only using RCA in (not digit)... also my dvd player is ancient and it is a 65' in a 4 x 4 room.. There is no audio RCA out, so I am using optic to my amp for the first time. If you have an old 'stereo system' you might be stuck... maybe try HDMI or get a pre-amp Of-course you can get a better picture but you will pay for it or you might not get the features, functions and streaming connectivity that you want. Wish it had a dual tuner for some PIP and wish the setup process had more 'skip' options... but I guess if I had these, I would want something else... still feeling it. Great TV....so far.
Bought this for my new house best purchase so easy to use switching from tv to internet and Netflix so easy and has multiple usb slots which I always use and the quality is second to none
Good TV. Only problem is remote control is small
The screen on the 55cm is very sharp with good corner to corner illumination and resolution. It works well. The guide is good but the thin blue line showing the current time is not easy to see. The guide shows you some buttons on the remote which is good but when you select a channel, there are options for coloured buttons displayed which isn't really necessary.
The TV is in a good price range and worth considering. The only thing I don't like is the remote. it's small and the volume / channel buttons are in the top half which is not ergon...omic. In fact some buttons are difficult to ascertain when the room is dark or if you need reading glasses. If they made the remote a bit bigger with more clarity to help find the buttons a bit easier, then I might have given this 5 stars. However its a good TV that I do recommend.
Quite a good TV. Bought October of 2019 from Harvey Norman for $945.
Paid $50 for delivery.
One negative is that if the curtains are open the glare reflects like a mirror on the TV.
My older Samsung 32" that I bought 14 years ago didn't do that.
Stay clear of the Samsung 32" N5300 model though as it can only be setup by using a mobile phone app which is bloody stupid. What idiot came up with that idea. One has to download an app to the mobile and then its suppose to work. Don't own a mobile that has apps as its quite old. No mention of thsi o...n Samsung or HN web site about needing a mobile phone to download an app just to run the setup on that model TV. The N5300 should have a general recall on it. Clearly a piece of junk. Anyway the 7100 is a very good tv set as long as the blinds or curtains are closed. Thinking about buying another one of these but from a different store next time. These are down to $699 at JB HiFi.
Great picture, software not so great.
Picture is very good and colour adjustment excellent. Not bad sound but the only tiresome thing is the program guide that is extremely slow! If they do an upgrade to the guide then I’ll be interested in getting another one!

Seriously disappointed with internet connectivity. Average picture quality!
This looked a descent 4K TV when we first saw it in The Good Guys store. Well you don't really get to explore all the options in store so you naturally believe the sales person, the other online reviews and TV's e-manual.
I have asked this question to the sales person regarding internet connectivity and specifically asked if it connects to 5ghz and he mentioned it does and it should.
However, it doesn't even show the 5ghz network. Plus drops more often on 2.4 ghz network. I kept my TV in my bedroom and I really want it to connect to 5ghz for a faster performance.
On top of these issues, picture quality seems to be average, like your normal HD tv.
I feel like returning this TV unless Samsung offers any solution to this.
I love this TV so much, a good investment!!!
My experience with this TV is plainly fantastic. i upgraded from a non-smart tv to this one and my life changed. The resolution is crisp (4K) and the sound has that "bass" on it. In this case, I found using a sound bar no longer necessary.

Very good TV for the price.
Pretty happy with this Samsung TV. Chose this over the other brands as it apparently had some of the best image quality plus added features such as Apple TV/Airplay, comprehensive smart TV apps and plenty of ports. The TV quality is great with only digital channels that are not HD looking a bit poor. The set up is easy and you can hook it up to your Smartthings app and get notifications from your Samsung washer and stuff... it's cool, but not a must!
Just a few downsides such as the Plex app not installing - although their phone customer servi...

This TV is in their budget range, however it seems to be overpriced for what you get. The TV remote is cumbersome and old looking.
The screen had a LCD light bleed issue, which after seeing other reviews seems to be common with this model.
Overall, for the price vs value there’s nothing special or feature worthy of this TV that would stop you from getting a much cheaper Kogan TV or something of the sort.
Cheapest 4k 75" Samsung you can get now for a good reason
Cheapest 4k 75" Samsung you can get now.
TV only looks good in bright rooms with its brightness set to high with full screen HD content.
Blacks don't look black they are grey
Excessive back light bleed
Cloudy washed out image & dull colors
This is a Samsung TV for the budget minded customer, here we have a cheap/low quality LCD, but if you don't care about image quality this will be ok for you, and it has all the smart features of other high end models minus the harddrive recording. ...Biggest issue with this TV is its bottom edge back lit, so on black scenes you have a lot of light bleeding on both the bottom corners. and you have a dark line along the bottom in bright scenes. This is not a good TV that you watch in a dark room/night, the backs are not black they are grey, and you have to turn up the brightness to max to make it look any good. In terms of colors, they are washed out, and they have no impact, the contrast between dark areas and a colorful areas in the same scene is not that good. My old 8yr old 1080p Samsung 60" has better color than this. In all the stores i've seen this on display they have this TV alone and away from the others, there is a reason for this, so you can not compare it with other TVs. Another big gripe with this TV is the remote, they made the useful buttons such as settings/tools/info smaller and replaced them with useless netflix/www/amazon buttons. So if you gonna buy a Samsung or a big 75"+ TV don't buy the cheapest, get QLED or a LG OLED, they are 2-3 times more expensive, and are much better than this TV. If your gonna buy this compare it carefully to other similar priced rivals, i recommend getting a mid range TCL or Hisense instead of this if your on a budget for a 75"+ size TV.
Purchased in December 2019 for $1,463.00.
Love this TV. All the features are so easy to use, never had a smart TV before but would never go back. Beautiful colour and sound is excellent. Would recommend this to all my friends as most of them are jealous now anyway!!!
Good tv but issues with network
Tv has many apps which make the tv a absolutely perfect tv but one big problem is the network has a mind of its own I constantly have to long press the power button to get the internet to stay connected. Which in return makes the apps you download on the tv useless. Samsung needs to upgrade the network software
Excellent TV, but misses on a few features
This is a good TV, but misses the marks in a few key areas. There are not enough apps in their app store, in my case I watch EPL on Optus Sports app which this TV and the app store do not support. It only has 3 HDMI ports and 2 USB ports. It does not have a 3.5mm headphone jack. It does not support program recording. Overall, it has a great picture, good remote and represents excellent value for money.
Questions & Answers
How can I make an payment.. thanks
The TV functions as it should except for always making creaking noises when images change on the screen. The creaks are physical noises not electronic noises, sounds more like expansion and contraction creaks due to temperature changes. When I turn the TV off it continues making these noises until the whole TV has cooled to ambient temperature.
If I come into the room at 4am, there is no noise at all as the set has been off for 6 hours but the moment it is turned on, the creaks and groans start again as random images change or channels are changed. We have a Samsung UA75MU6100WXXY purchased 16 months earlier and it is absolutely silent all the time.
Can you provide a reason for these noises?
