The Samsung TU7000 is a great TV for most users, thanks to its outstanding contrast, deep inky blacks, good upscaling, and HDR 10+ support. However, watch out for the lack of HDMI 2.1, VRR, and ALLM.

Product Snapshot

Overview

The Samsung TU7000 is an entry-level UHD 4K smart TV launched in March 2020. Its VA panel promises to provide better black and contrast ratio than IPS LCD TVs, but it can’t quite match the perfect blacks of an OLED.

In addition, it’s a smart TV powered by Tizen OS, which runs smoothly on the built-in ultra-fast crystal processor. As a result, it’s incredibly well-positioned for buyers who want an entry-level TV for an excellent movie-watching experience in the dark.

Please continue reading below to learn more about critics’ opinions about the Samsung TU7000, and see how it holds up compared to the highest-rated TVs available today.
