In principle, it is a model that can perfectly meet any expectation. We talk more specifically about the Samsung AU9005 that is presented as an interesting option due to its characteristics.
And it is that they are not few and most end up being really useful, therefore, the importance of this article, since we are going to delve a little more into its efficiency to know if it is really worth buying the Samsung UE50AU9005KXXC , we say this because Despite being a mid-range, it maintains a somewhat high cost exceeding 700 euros.
Exterior design of the Samsung AU9005
A spectacular appearance that will look good in almost any environment
If something stands out from the Samsung 50AU9005 is that it presents a striking design in every way, to begin with, we have that its size is 50 inches, therefore, its placement is a little easier both in medium and large rooms. It has a black color that generates a greater presence , which can be seen from different angles.
However, its greatest power is found in the front that implements totally thin frames, and that generates an elegance very little seen in the mid-range. In addition, this is great to be able to perceive a greater space on the screen , which is important so that the content we are watching does not present any interference.
The center stand is a bit odd, although it has a modern twist that implements well with the rest of the aesthetic. This offers us good stability on almost any surface. The back is almost non-existent in thickness which gives it a totally flat look . The only bad thing is that the building materials feel weak.
A connectivity that in principle is very simple, since not many connectors are added, although this gives us a cleaner connector box. Here we highlight three HDMI inputs ideal for using external devices such as laptops, consoles and players. Two USB 2.0 that as main benefit offer the possibility of recording directly from the television, yes, for its version the transfer speed is somewhat slow, especially for large files .
Other physical connections that we have are its Ethernet port that works to connect us to the internet directly from the modem, however, this forces us to place the TV as close as possible to the Router. We have an RF input to be able to watch digital television with the help of the available tuners. Regarding wireless, the presence of Wi-Fi stands out , likewise, we have Bluetooth to connect without having to use cables. It also has DLNA .
Image quality and general functions of the Samsung AU9005
The image quality of the Samsung UE50AU9005 does not improve much compared to what was seen in previous versions, however, with what was offered we will witness some striking scenes for any content . First of all, it has a 4K resolution that seeks to provide us with better details with the idea of realistic images.
There is an LED panel that, as is well known, does not have such a marked power, so the backlighting is regular, therefore, we must take care of the location of the TV and avoid very dark or bright areas. The 4K processor tries to optimize any image to achieve an ideal definition, improving color and high dynamic range .
Thanks to the Motion Xcelerator Turbo technology we will enjoy a much more fluid movement both in movies and video games. Also included is support for HDR + that increases the range of light levels on the TV to achieve a huge spectrum of colors and all the visual details, even in those darkest scenes .
In this range, everything is not usually positive, and as expected, the audio of the Samsung UE50AU9005KXXC falls a little short, especially in very demanding content, since in principle we have an acceptable quality. This model has two integrated speakers that offer only 20W of power, although it includes Q-Symphony .
In addition, some enhancement technologies have been implemented that will be of great help for a much more enjoyable final experience. Here we find Dolby Digital Plus and Adaptive Sound that try to deliver a more enveloping and clearer sound output that can mainly help dialogues. This ends up benefiting positively.
