Samsung JU7100 Series Review
Not Samsung's best 2015 series, but it's still a good buy at the sale price.
The Samsung JU7100 series is a solid performer. It delivers accurate colors and very smooth white balance/grayscale elements out of the box, and upscales sub-4K content very well. It also handles motion pretty well (with no notable drawbacks, at least).
However, like many midrange LED TVs the dimming functions are good, but not amazing, and leave the TV with middling contrast and the VA panel-related narrow viewing angle. The drawback here is that a trained calibrator could likely fix issues with grayscale tracking/colors—which the TV nails—but can't increase the contrast ratio or viewing angle.
The JU7100 was at least impressively calibrated in Movie mode, nailing rec.709 color and grayscale mapping. Read on to see my calibration settings, as well as the pre/post calibration charts (with data/summaries in captions).
