The viewing angles are appalling if I move even 15 degrees off centre they distort, as I got a VA panel instead of IPS (it’s luck of the draw which you get in this model) and even though I disabled all the dimming/eco modes, the CE dimming cannot be disabled unless you do it through a service menu (which invalidates the warranty and could potentially brick the tv if you don’t know what your doing)

Try it off centre and try it with scenes that transition from light to dark (and please don’t assume you can disable the dimming)

That's why I was about to buy LG as it has IPS..but now, I had seen that Panasonic and it's exactly what I need ( size 40" ) but don't know if it has VApanel or IPS

It annoys me that the 40” panels are so much more expensive than the 43”
jamierichardson12914/10/2019 14:57

Yes, because the demand for 40" panels is lower than 43" one...went in-store, even more confused..I know more than the staff:)))
I’m not surprised the staff are very underwhelming lol

I used A PS4, Apple TV 4K, Nintendo Switch, tried a 4K Fire tv stick and the onboard apps and couldn’t get accurate colours after hours of research and tinkering. It’s definitely the worst 4K TV I’ve bought.
Saw Sony KD43XG7003BU 43 4K Ultra HD LED TV In-store( £445 at eBay )..and it's actually pretty good. They said is VA panel but... can't rely on what they said..

The 2018 model reference UE43NU7400 was either IPS or VA but as far as I can see on comparison websites, samsung specification and forums this is just VA.

I found a few people on forums saying they had the IPS panel, I don’t even know why they are producing a VA personally and why you can’t turn off the CE dimming is crazy to me!

I see, for the £340-400ish this costs it's generally reviewed well for the picture; HDR isn't that impressive but no TV sub £500 is really.

I watch 4k movies on the Xbox One X, use for PC/Netlix etc as a "top screen" for video. Generally the panel has impressed me and others who have come over to watch movies (again for the price, it is no high end TV etc). I did go off some settings given on AV Forums and made some individual tweaks. If I were you i'd be sending the TV back for replacement as it seems yours isn't working correctly (or maybe you've come from a more expenisve set out of this lower end TV level)?

I do agree that the viewing angles are typical of a VA TV under £500. Luckily my primary use isn't a lounge with seats all over but looking directly on or within 15 degrees.

If someone in this thread is looking for a good budget Samsung this RU series is definitely worth a look and i'd reccomend getting the 7400 as it has the smart remote which is much more responsive than the standard one, I seriously think something may be wrong with your panel if with all of those different sources the picture was poor. The dimming is also there, but it is far less intrusive than previous iterations of cheap samsungs such as the 5000 and 6000 series, which I own one and have seen the other in person.

If you are looking head on it is fine and I understand obviously all TVs are subjective and the dimming drives some people nuts (like me) and others can quite happily live with it. I bought my son a 32” curved Samsung for his bedroom which is IPS and has no dimming whatsoever on Movie mode and the screen is really nice. Il have a look and see if I can find some of the forum posts (I was trawling for hours to try and find a solution lol)
Ive got the The Sony X850F. The entire screen goes bright with the slightest light thing on the screen. I waited and waited to get a screen. Turns out earlier tvs were better?
Which would anyone recommend in either a samsung qled or lg nanocell tv? They seem to be usually at a similar price point but can't decide which to get. I may wait for the oneplus tv as that will be using samsungs qled screens i believe though i think that it's just going to be a 55" screen and my max is 50"

I had it side by side with my Philips 43” at the weekend and the Samsung just looked a mess. It has Global dimming that can only be turned off using the PC setting, which then locks the colour adjustment. I definitely wouldn’t buy another Samsung even over more budget brands like Philips

It depends on your budget/requirement, for instance I always want 4 hdmi so that limits me quite a bit. Don’t worry too much about hdr on sets that cost around £400 as it is usually better turned off in this price range. What size are you after? 43” usually costs as much as 48”/49” as the bigger models are the more common size

Can I ask why the Bluetooth feature is important. If it is for headphones tv’s can sometimes be hit or miss on sound delay, but something like the fire tv stick 4K is cheap and does a brilliant job.

Bluetooth is for my wireless sound bar .. it used to connect straight away to my fire stick but that and my tv have started to deteriorate so I’m going for a smart tv instead.

I’m always let down by smart TVs (I’ve only had the Samsung that has all the apps I need but the wireless connection is flakey and not very reliable) at least if there is an issue with the Fire TV or Roku, the sticks can be upgraded or replaced with a newer model fairly cheap.

Ooh that’s a shame .. considering tv’s are rarely sold without being smart these days I’ll still probably use my fire stick on occasion as I have a lot of sideloaded apps on it. Looking to buy from John Lewis or richer sounds as they provide 5+ years warranty
