You'd be better with the Hisense H50b7500 at this price if you don't care about viewing angles. The panels on these are not the best, while the Hisense has a VA panel and as good a picture as you are going to get at this price point.

Hisense are more prone to faults and glitchy connectivity etc from what I heard. Is that not so???

I've not had mine long enough to comment. I have a 5 year warranty with John Lewis, so it will be fine in my case regardless. I viewed this and the RU7400 in John Lewis the other day and thought that the picture on them was no good, and ultimately that was my main criterion of selection.

Can the stand be removed?

Yes! I bought the same model a couple of months ago and removed the hideous stand and wall mounted it.

I looked at the ru7100 and the ru7470 (ru7400 varient) in currys pc world yesterday and thought the 7100 was ok and the 7470 very good. Obviously the qled blew them both out the park but that's to be expected with the price difference

interesting what was the problem with the RU7400, did you try it on all different modes???
Nu models are supposedly better

The image was sharp, it just lacked vibrancy and the colours looked a bit washed out. I think it was partly because it was an IPS panel as the similarly priced LG near to it was the same. The Q60R next to it was far, far better, but it was also £250 more expensive. I have read that sometimes the Samsungs come with VA panels, it just varies unit to unit, so it might be worth having a look in the shop.

This is a VA panel too I thought?
Does this have a satellite feed?

John Lewis state it in the spec. If so, does it connect through a coax threaded input?

(My LG has seperate inputs for freeview aerial and LNB coax screw in freesat thingy?)

Thanks in advance!

The specs on that page are incorrect, check on Samsung's site instead. The 7100 doesn't have a Satellite LNB input. It has an RF Freeview input and 1 DVB-T2 Tuner.

Almost all Samsung TV's use VA panels. They occasionally use IPS panels on the 43" models.

Just confused how! If they state it’s a VA, are they even allowed to just sell an IPS panel instead?

I am not aware of Samsung saying it is one or the other. Their site doesn't list a panel type. Apparently you just have to go down and look at the panels when looking at the smaller Samsung sizes, it isn't really that big of a deal.

That isn't Samsung or a seller, and Rtings is an American site where things are not quite the same as here. Anyway, I hope you get the panel you want to get and the TV is everything you hope for.

I ended up calling John Lewis. They told me the box said it does have a satellite input written on the box. I’m suspecting it doesn’t and will call them again to cancel my order.

Thanks though.
Hi all i am very interested in this for movies, tv and offline gaming. My current Samsung in led but not 4k and looks crap with some games. so i am looking for an upgrade at this price. And would be extremely grateful for any advice?

Same position as me, I’m waiting for a deal on the RU7400. If you want something cheaper, go for the RU7100 in this deal, which uses inferior image processing but is £70 cheaper.

Cancelled my order as I need the Freesat when the wife watches Virgin cable.

A freesat box with HD and recording would have cost me another £80+- and an extra remote/clutter/power.

Ordered a 7400 55”.

As my order was online, hopefully someone can reserve this 7100 now.

I haven’t seen them side by side but I assume there will be a noticeable difference, although it probably depends more on the content you’re watching if its significant difference or not. My mindset is that I’d rather pay a bit more for the RU7400 over the RU7100 and call it quits there- the ‘better’ Samsung set than both of these is the RU8000 which is at least £150 more.

This link is pretty good at summarising the differences- you’ll have to scroll down a bit
