Verdict
Although the Samsung MU7000 didn’t match last year’s KS7000 in several aspects (lack of quantum dot filter leading to smaller colour gamut; lower peak brightness), it must be pointed out that the MU series is meant to succeed 2016′s KU series, whereas QLED is the evolution from the KS series. Regardless, among 55-inch 4K HDR televisions under £1000, no other model (including the Sony XE70/ XE80, Panasonic EX700 or LG SJ series) uses a 120Hz VA-type LCD panel, leaving the door open for the UE55MU7000 to rule the roost with its deep blacks, accurate colours, high motion clarity, and ultra-low input lag.

So your saying if last year model KS7000 and this year model MU7000 were available for same price I should get last year model KS7000 ?
A few negative things.

Local dimming can't be turned off only set to low which can be distracting depending on the circumstances.

Ads on the menu bar. Rakuten, Amazon Prime, etc.

The small remote although very handy could have more buttons. Source select and settings would be nice. Talking into the remote can get old.

Would be nice if the One Connect system was optional. Not useful if not wall mounted.

There's plenty of positives of course.

There's no way MU7000 has better blacks, or motion clarity in XE85. Don't even get me started on those super saturated colours as accurate

Well according to HDTV Test's verdict...yes. However, the KS7000 had some issues with the panel and some people received duff sets - I was lucky in the sense that my first set was perfect.

I have the KS7000 and I'm looking for a TV for another room. It seems the QLED line is the direct replacement for the KS series.

However, the QLED line is 'only' around £200-300 cheaper than the LG OLED TV. Who knows what the OLED will drop to in the next few days.

I'd say wait and see.

With a 0% credit card and cutting back on buying tea/coffee/lunch from outside for a month or two...I'd rather have the OLED

Do you not get 2x remotes? One standard (with numerical buttons) and One smart (with voice control) ?

Yes but the smart is Bluetooth. Some don't want to have 2 remotes in use for the TV.

All the graphs and analysis (pre and post calibration) can be found here:

hdtvtest.co.uk/new…htm
Took me 4 sets to get one without terrible edge bleed. The quality control isn't the best.... However it is a good set of you get one without this issue (Check out av forums and you will see what I mean )
I went for the 49" model of this as I simply couldn't fit anything bigger in my games room lol. I'm very happy with it overall. I can't say I have any complaints with the hdr image (even though that's going to be the main area where any TV in this price range struggles with when compared to TV's that are over £1000). But that's understandable really as you get what you pay for.

As a replacement for my Panasonic HD TV, I can certainly tell the difference and the blacks are very good. It's used mainly for gaming and I can't get enough of playing the likes of Shadow of War, Infamous and Fifa 18 on it. I'm sure the hdr isn't the best and doesn't deliver a true representation of what the technology can really do but I have no complaints. It's certainly more than good enough for me compared to what I've been used to. The image and highlights are brighter than I've ever known before when playing games (the sun is literally blinding in Shadow of War lol). And the colours and neon signs are really vibrant in Infamous. I didn't have a big budget at all but I feel like I got one of the best tv's available to me. The other ones I considered were Hisense 6800 and the LG810v. All good tv's I'd imagine

im on the verge of buying this but its testing my budget . how does the much cheaper UE50MU6120 (£399) Compare to the 7000. all i watch is freeview HD and SD sky chanels with some amazon prime video and playing some ps4 .so is this tv worth the £300 more or is the 7000 in another league in terms of picture quality over the 6120

Hi, where are the ads as I've never noticed any? Certainly nothing on the menu screen. When I scroll over the Rakuten app, for example, you get 'new releases on Rakuten'... or 'Recommended' on YouTube, 'Top Titles' on My5. But that's not ads that Samsung can be blamed for. That's just what the app chooses to display on its tile when you scroll over an app, which is normally tailored to you or a breakdown of new content that is available. Aside from that, I have no idea what you mean by ads lol. I've not seen any

I don't have any images. But they appear on the left side of the menu bar. This isn't my image. "Casual" for example. Amazon Prime, RakutenTV, appear here.

"Sponsored content" trial of some sorts

There's probably ways of blocking them via router, etc, but still...

I was going to call them(RS) to see if they could price match but reading the website...

If a product is not available to mail order then the retailer must have an outlet within 50 miles of the Richer Sounds store you are purchasing from.

If a product can't be collected locally the Price Beat must include next day P&P.

We must be able to verify stocks.

RGB don't do next day.

Just spotted them. So it's one 'sponsored' tile to the left side of your apps. I honestly never realised until you pointed it out to me lol. Probably not a big deal then really as it can't be that obtrusive if I had to go looking for it. If it was a few tiles or maybe stuck in the middle of your installed apps then I'd have realised it was there. But of course it would be better if there was no ads at all! Thanks for your response

Seems quite similar to Xbox dashboard ads

Yeah I think so! I've never been one to find ads annoying unless it's right in your face and popping up on screen each time you press on something. Some ads I even find useful if it's informing me of an app I wasn't aware of or new content being available. Guess it depends on the individual really. But I wouldn't say one sponsored tile that is restricted to the bottom left would annoy the majority of people. Never really crossed my mind until I went looking for it
This or the sony xe90 I guess the xe90?
This is an insanely good price for this TV. The sound on it is incredible for built in speakers. Think I'm going to go for the Sony xe90 49 inch

I went to John Lewis on Saturday to see TVs and compare quality. You can easily tell the difference between 6120 and 7000. Colours are more vivid and quality is not far from QLED tv.
