- 48-inch LCD TV with direct LED lighting
- Native 4K/UHD resolution
- Curved screen
- Tizen-powered Smart TV system
The Samsung UE48JU7500
is one of the smaller curved TVs on the market, and runs the neat and friendly Tizen smart system. It looks great though, with a trim grey frame running around the screen and a forward-jutting silver bar to rest on.
With a 4K resolution, pictures are sharp, but there are some issues. Firstly, the 48-inch LCD panel with direct LED lighting is very reflective, which can be blamed almost entirely on that curve. Also, unless you spend a lot of time tinkering with the calibration tools, you’ll notice a severe amount of motion blur. However, black levels are strong, with just a hint of backlight clouding, while whites are pure and vibrant and colours are natural. 3D playback is good, but the screen is just a bit too small for it to truly impress. A low input score means it’s good enough for gaming too.
The speakers perform well, considering they fire down rather than forwards, and they’re plenty loud enough. The mid-range sounds more open and detailed than we’ve come to expect from a Samsung TV too, though there’s not much in terms of bass, which can leave action scenes sounding rather harsh in the treble range.Price:
