Samsung is one of the most successful manufacturers in the modern TV landscape. Every year, Samsung makes a huge presence at the Consumer Electronics Show often demonstrating new and expensive tech while last year’s tech gets a big markdown in price. This 2015, the trend continues with small 4K TVs finally being priced reasonably while some of the curved TVs are not as ridiculously priced as before. Samsung’s new overpriced beast comes in the form of a new proprietary technology which Samsung refers to as “SUHD”. Nobody really knows what SUHD stands for but Samsung is pitching the technology as the next big thing and understandably, not many people are flocking to it. Not everyone is willing to spend more than $10,000 on a 78-inch TV. But the good news is that Samsung’s upper midrange offerings represent the very best of 2014 with some modern twists. The Samsung UN78JU7500 is the company’s new consumer flagship 4K TV without the extra gimmicks.

About the Samsung UN78JU7500
The Samsung UN78JU7500 is the most expensive Samsung 4K display that doesn’t have the SUHD technology. That’s actually a big deal because it only costs $5,999 which is almost half the price of the cheapest SUHD model. Being the top-of-the-line Series 7 model for 2015, the UN78JU7500 doesn’t hold back in just about every area. The screen is curved and has a matching curved stand. The bezels are remarkably thin and the overall appearance just screams modern. It essentially has the same specifications of a typical JU7100 TV but with a curved screen and it comes with a pair of 3D glasses. There is also no 78-inch variant of the JU7100.
Alongside the JU7100 models, the Samsung UN78JU7500 offers a complete experience of Samsung’s new Smart TV interface and it looks vastly improved over the older Smart Hub interfaces. It is powered by Tizen which means a new app ecosystem to get involved with and fortunately, the core apps are there like YouTube, Netflix, DailyMotion, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video and others. Launching an app is as simple as scrolling through a horizontal bar full of tiles and picking the app you want. You can download more apps as the TV connects to the Internet through Wi-Fi and you can do the typical local networking features. The Web browser has that modern feel and it is pretty responsive. The quad-core processor within the UN78JU7500 is primarily responsible for the speedy interface and quick navigation.
In addition to the standard remote control, the Samsung UN78JU7500 also comes with a smaller and thinner Smart Remote Control which offers a couple of interesting ways to interact with the TV. You can use the built-in touchpad if you prefer a classic “point-and-click” style for launching apps. The built-in microphone can accept voice commands as well. It can also serve as your primary remote if you don’t mind doing basic things like adjusting the volume or cycling through channels.
Like many of the other Samsung Smart TVs released recently, the UN78JU7500 is fully compatible with the Smart View 2.0 app for select Android and Windows devices. The app works best for flagship smartphones like the Galaxy S6 or Note 4 as the app offers a virtual remote control along with convenient media sharing features. Once the mobile device and TV recognize each other in the same local area network, it is also possible to use the app to watch local TV remotely.
There is an endless debate as to whether or not a curved display really improves the viewing experience. That really depends on where you will position it and for a 78-inch display, it needs to be placed in a large living room right in front of a sofa. To really get that “immersive” experience, you obviously have to be on the center of the sofa. The reality is that the ordinary Samsung 4K displays have mediocre viewing angles and the curved display hides that flaw a bit. Watching blockbuster movies on a large curved display can feel pretty surreal and may even keep you away from the cinema if you have a good sound system to back things up.
Curves aside, the picture quality is nothing short of amazing and it might even make you wonder why one should pony up more than $5,000 on a Series 8 or Series 9 Samsung SUHD display. The Samsung UN78JU7500 has more than enough technologies including the Precision Black Technology, Auto Depth Enhancer and Peak Illuminator. These technologies work together to bring out very good contrast with deep blacks and very pristine whites. The level of detail you can get with this display is very impressive and is highly noticeable with 4K content since this is a very large display. Colors are very natural and lifelike too. This is all topped off with an impressive Ultra Clear Pro panel which eliminates those annoying reflections caused by ambient lighting.
As a step-up model to the also curved JU6700 models, the UN78JU7500 also boasts Motion Rate 240 which is Samsung’s marketing term for a 120 Hz refresh rate. Fast-paced action scenes and sporting programs look better on this TV with reduced judder. The Auto Motion Plus option is available too if you ever need that “Soap Opera” effect.
• Excellent picture quality without the pricey SUHD premium.
• Great Smart TV experience complete with the Smart Remote Control.
• Very futuristic and curvy design.
• Curves may not contribute much to the viewing experience depending on where it is placed.
• The Samsung UN75JU7100 costs $1,000 less and has the same feature set minus the curved display.
If you are willing to spend a lot on a huge TV that looks really good in your living room and delivers in every possible aspect, the Samsung UN78JU7500 is easily the one to get. Samsung’s SUHD technology is cutting edge stuff but it isn’t absolutely necessary if you want to enjoy 4K content for the unforeseeable future. The UN78JU7500 simply lacks any serious weaknesses.
