The Samsung UE48JU7500 has a native resolution of 4K UHD and still has the company’s fascination of a curved design. What immediately sets this particular model apart from the South Korean tech giant’s other 4K TVs is that it has been placed in a pretty affordable price class, especially when you consider their other UHD television sets that can make anyone’s eyes water and budgets broken immensely.
The Samsung UE48JU7500 is Placed in a More Reasonable Price Point
For its design, the Samsung UE48JU7500 is one striking TV. The panel is surrounded by a dark gray frame which is reasonably trim. The frame is also distinguished due to how it angles back from the edges towards the screen. As for its stand, it makes the unit look like its magically hovering above your desk. It places the TV behind a forward-jutting curved silver bar that has a raised front edge.
While it does look quite slim at its front, the UE48JU7500 is rather chunky around the back. Still on its rear, it has a plasticky finish but it still maintains a sense of style, especially when you consider it to have a more reasonable price tag compared to Samsung’s other 4K UHD TVs.
It should be noted, however, that this is not one of Samsung’s SUHD variants. Hence, it does not feature the SUHD ultra-bright panel designs, nor the high dynamic range (HDR) playback functionalities, and it does not have the nanocrystal color technology. It still benefits from a direct LED lighting system. This means that images are still brightened by LED clusters that are directly positioned right behind the screen.
When talking about its curve, the company claims that bending the images being displayed on the screen delivers better picture advantages. These include enhanced immersion while watching your favorite shows or when playing games. It is also claimed to have a greater sense of depth, and has the potential of bringing better sharpness. While it does deliver what it promises pretty well, the key shortcomings of having a curved TV are not diminished. These disadvantages include issues of distorted geometry (especially when watching from an angle of more than 35-degrees), as well as exaggerated reflections found on the screen.
When it comes to image quality, the Samsung UE48JU7500 does fairly well with other UHD models found in its own price class. Therefore, it can still be a good choice for anyone looking for a curved 4K UHD TV while keeping tabs on the budget.
