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.

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.

Questions & Answers
Hi can it chrome cast? No salesman can seem to answer that question
Hi Chris, the RU7100 does not have a built in Chromecast.
For more info:
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?

Hi Ian, we'd like to look into this. Would you be able to send us a message the link below with a video of this?
I'm not on facebook, and won't be signing up to facebook to respond to you.
I have tried numerous times to speak to someone on 1300 362 603 but the phone drops out to an engaged signal after a minute or so of listening to a recorded message............... every time.
I'm becoming frustrated by my lack of success at trying to speak to a human at SAMSUNG!!!!!!
