I have been a loyal Samsung customer for the last eight years for several reasons. So far, they have demonstrated excellent reliability and build quality across several of their product lines, including not just TVs, but also with their Blu-ray players, cell phones, accessories, headphones, etc. Even when I did have a minor issue with another TV (2010 Samsung plasma HDTV), they happily sent out an excellent and courteous repair tech to my house, even though the TV was slightly out of warranty!
So now here are my actual comments on this particular model (UN48JU7500). First off, Samsung has decided to pull a bold move and switch their smart TV OS platform over to Tizen. It's relatively new, so a few bugs here and there are expected, but so far they have been minor. What surprises me the most though is that they have been frequently updating / patching it. I have a wired ethernet connection for my TV, so the first update on day one was no problem. For those of you using WiFi only, the latest OS version (a little over 1 GB) is easily accessible on their website. Just load it onto a small USB drive and plug it into the back of the TV (I used the blue USB 3.0 port on the actual TV, not the ones on the One Connect Mini box). After that, WiFi will work perfectly.
As of today (5/23/15), version 1214 of the OS is out. I did have a minor hiccup during the update though. The first online update brought me up to something like version 1016, but luckily I had an empty USB drive lying around. Initiating the update through the menu did not work as intended, but a quick reboot fixed that in no time; the software updates QUICKLY! Also worth noting is that for the longest time, smart TV user interfaces were slow and clunky... but Tizen running on the built-in quad-core processor is buttery smooth! Even the 3D glasses' firmware has been updated as well... or was that my imagination? I don't remember too well... oh well, LOL.
By now, plenty of apps are available: streaming, games, educational, informational, etc... roughly 300 total so far! That's really good for such a new platform! Also, note that the TV comes with roughly 4 GB of internal storage for apps and content, and the OS itself uses up about 1.2~1.4 GB, but the apps are small so there's plenty of room to install as many as you want!
4K and 3D:
It's pretty well known that Samsung currently has the most options for 4K streaming content. Amazon has a decent library, Netflix has a small one, YouTube has several 4K videos, but I'm still waiting for the Comcast / Xfinity app to come out so I can have even more sweet sweet 4K goodness. I'd also like to note that the 4K upscaling is pretty darn good, even for old school standard definition (480i)! Luckily though, Seinfeld was actually filmed in widescreen:) Up close, of course you can tell the difference, but after sitting about 4 to 6 feet away, I can't even discern between 4K and 1080p, although I do have a very slight astigmatism in my right eye. Also, the video compression from Amazon and Netflix 4K streaming is barely noticeable. You have to look closely and have a trained eye to identify it, but that's really the content provider's issue.
Now if 3D is your thing, VUDU has BY FAR the largest selection of streaming content, although the best movies can only be purchased at this time, rather than rented... and you'll be looking to drop anywhere between about $22 ~ $37... but hey, if you can afford this TV, you can afford to buy 3D movies for it, so quit whining about your first-world problems, LOL. Personally, if the 3D movie you want to watch is not available for rental, just buy the stupid 3D Blu-ray disc; the compression is superior... to the trained eye of course... but that might just be some sort placebo thing, haha. By the way, the 3D Blu-ray movies work great when played on my Xbox One!
By far, the coolest feature about the remote is the Nintendo Wii-style motion tracking. Yes... you can use the OEM remote like a Wii controller!! It can also control my cable box! Overall, the remote takes a little getting used to since the number buttons are only available on the screen, but the Wii-style motion tracking mediates that issue. Another cool thing is that the remote works with the TV via RF, not traditional IR, so you don't need to have line-of-sight to the TV to use it. Also, because of that, some software updates will also include firmware updates for the remote. It seems that the remote does still also have an IR transmitter for working with other devices, but I'm too lazy to look that up in the manual, LOL.
One of the selling points for me on this TV was the inclusion of some decent woofers (20 W, in addition to the 20 W mid-high range speakers)... not sub-woofers though. So bass handling is better than my previous 2013 6-series LED Samsung TV, but not as good as my sound studio's bass response. I should note that in my spare time, I work as an audio engineer as I have formal acoustics graduate coursework under my belt as part of my engineering master's degree... yes, I like to gloat... a little... actually, A LOT, LOL.
So you might be wondering why I didn't get something like a soundbar, or surround sound system... well that's because I'm kind of cheap... not too cheap, just a little, LOL. So having decent stock sound system was fairly important to me. With that said, sub-bass frequencies are somewhat there, but you're not really going to feel them, as in a nightclub. However, I was surprised that bass music sounds fairly acceptable and tight. Punchy kick drums decay well, so they're not muddy, and the distortion is minimal, and only noticeable to a trained ear. Speaking of which, after years in the studio I've developed a good ear for mixing and mastering music, so just by listening I was able to get a decently "flat" frequency response with some minor EQ tweaking, at least better than what I expect out of most TVs.
SCREEN MIRRORING and DLNA:
This worked better than I expected, and it was easy to setup! The screen mirroring wireless latency was roughly the same as with my former 2013 Samsung LED TV; about half a second! I wasn't able to test this using a wired connection via the MHL port though as my Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge does not support MHL... I still don't know why they removed that feature, but whatever... again, first-world problems, LOL.
What surprised me the most though was that unlike my old 2013 Samsung LED TV, this model supports wireless video content sharing (DLNA) in Full HD (1080p) from my iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6 at 60 FRAMES PER SECOND (FPS)! Android has it built-in, so setting it up was easy. However, iPhone doesn't. Fortunately, there is a work-around because... wait for it... there's an app for that, LOL! You have a few options. I tried both Samsung's own Smart View 2.0 app and the AllCast app. Both worked FLAWLESSLY, again, even at 60 FPS! So at least I can share photos, videos, and music to my TV from my iPhone :) Also, screen mirroring and DLNA-sharing 4K content from my Galaxy S6 worked BEAUTIFULLY :) I have yet to try wireless screen mirroring with my laptop using WiDi, which I guess is based on the Miracast standard (??), but I may try that out soon and update this review.
So by now you can probably tell that I'm a huge nerd... so of course I'm going to do some gaming on this thing. First, let me just say that you don't need to put the TV into "Game Mode" to enjoy a low latency gaming experience. My best guess as to what Game Mode does is it eliminates or reduces some video post-processing that the TV applies to all displayed content?? Maybe the 4K upscaling?? I guess it reduces this to get the video rendered faster, giving you a slight latency advantage in fast-paced gaming, like first-person shooters and racing games. I didn't notice a difference in latency or video quality between Game Mode on and off... but I didn't really look too closely or examine this rigorously.
So now that that's out of the way, video games look AMAZING on this thing. This is truly where the 4K upscaling shines. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare never looked so good... even better than on my 2010 Samsung plasma TV! "Ghosting" is non-existent, the picture is crystal clear, and the experience is immersive (thank you curved screen)... so who needs an Oculus Rift now? Not this guy, LOL... actually, I still really hope the Oculus eventually goes mainstream... but until then, I have this marvel of engineering! Also, when you get a chance, play fast-paced games with the "Auto Motion Plus" setting set to "Smooth"... you won't be disappointed.
So stop thinking about it and just buy this TV! I struggled to decide between this model and its 6-series counterpart (UN48J6700). But the addition of woofers, 3D, curved screen (I know it's gimmicky, but I still like it), and the One Connect Mini box made the extra 400 or 500 bucks worth it! Speaking of which, I love the idea of the One Connect Mini. I wish it was the fully-featured, full-size One Connect, but hey, it's better than not having any sort of external upgradeable component, period. Although I do wonder if I can use a regular One Connect... haven't been able to find an answer to that yet.
Again, seriously though, stop thinking about it and just get this stupid thing, LOL. Just eat only Ramen noodles for a month if you have to, just like you did in college... you'll thank me later. Cheers! :)
The TV itself I researched to no end before choosing, because I am using it for a PC for 4k gaming. It's one of the lowest response times (~20ms) from a TV boasting these features, especially of this size, there's also very little input lag. It also is capable of 4k, 60 hz, 4/4/4 chroma while connected via hdmi 2.0 to the pc. I'm running a 980ti hydro copper, using the hdmi 2.0 port with no issues. Some games run ultra settings with solid 60fps. Turning off AA (because with 4k, it's completely unnecessary) will also help if it's not giving the expected fps. Some settings in the TV need to be tweaked to enable all of this, mainly game mode MUST be on. Turn on 4/4/4 for the hdmi port you are connecting to the PC as well.
The display is beautiful. From the color, to the lighting, to the resolution and framerate. Even in 4k 60hz, the motion interpolation processing adds "fake frames" for 120hz feel. There's obviously a lot of debate surrounding this, and it can be turned off, but I am of the opinion that even interpolated frames, deriving from 2 sample frames is better than not having frames at all. I've watched the same videos on a 1080p 120hz tv, a 1080p 60hz tv and this one, and I prefer the 120 framerate. It does not seem different than the native 120hz 1080p screen, when the processor upsamples on the 60hz 4k TV.
When using it as a pc monitor it would be best to minimize burn in by having a dynamic background (windows picture slide show with a decent speed of rotation) and similar screen saver with a short activation time. Also keep your remote handy, because while it will sleep and turn off by itself, it will not wake from mouse movement. The dual screen mode works with PC as well, so if you want to watch tv or play games on one side and have your PC on the other, you are more than welcome to. The curved feature cuts down on glare from room lighting and there are several options in the TV itself to adjust lighting automatically depending on the lighting in the room.
I am still in the honeymoon phase of ownership, so I will update if any issues arise, but due to extensively researching this item first, and knowing exactly what issues to look for when testing it out, I can't foresee any potential problems. Amazon also offers several different brands of 5 year warranties for roughly 10% of the purchase price of the TV, which I took advantage of, as it seemed more than reasonable for the length of coverage. Very happy camper here.
