Samsung CU7175 Review: A mid-range giant

Samsung CU7175 offers you, for a very reasonable price (and even more so considering that it is a TV from a top brand in televisions), mid-range features that, although they could be more complete, are more than adequate to what you want. the product is worth it. Let’s see what he has in store for us.

Design of the SAMSUNG CU7175

Design of the SAMSUNG CU7175

The first appreciation regarding the design of this TV is that the firm has not spent time designing a new style for the mid-range (or has not wanted to do so because this one works well, to be honest). I’m talking about the identical maintenance of the television compared to previous years, a black Slim Look .

This is not a negative point by any means. In fact, to my taste, from the front the model is quite attractive because the black color is very pure and vivid, almost shiny.

What does bother me and not about the design in general but about SAMSUNG TU75CU7175UXXC in particular is that its V legs are maintained, which, to make matters worse, are very thin and light , in keeping with the case, slim. It must be remembered that the panel is heavy and that the larger it is, the easier it is to tip over. It will happen? We assume not, of course, since the television stands become better established every year, but if you ask me personally, I think that for 75 inches and up they should have opted for another option.

In any case, consider the 958.2 x 1673.2 x 59.9 mm of the panel or the 1047.9 x 1673.2 x 341.1 mm if you keep its stand. The weight in both cases is 30.4 kg and 30.8 kg respectively. If you want to hang it, also get a device with VESA 400 x 400 mm .

Tuning and connectivity

Nothing surprising in terms of its good tuning, since it allows us to watch TV with Common Interface 1.4, HbbTV, analog NTSC/PAL/SECAM and digital DVB-C/S2/T2 .

Physical connectivity options

As shown, the SAMSUNG 75CU7175 has two antenna plugs for digital, RJ-45 Ethernet, three HDMI and a USB in version 2.0, an optical output for digital audio, the connector for electricity and , outside of image, it also has the slot that allows us to insert the CI card .

Together with this we find WiFI 5 (2.4 Direct) and an updated Bluetooth 5.2 .

All this means that the television now has support for features such as WiFI direct, ARC, eARC, CEC, ALLM, DLNA, HDCP 2.2 and BT HID.

Image quality and general functions

Behind the Crystal name that Samsung offers us to make it attractive is a 75-inch VA panel with full matrix and full depth falsified by Frame Rate Control (in 8 + 2). Both resolution and backlighting are as expected, Ultra High Definition and conventional LED respectively.

As a prominent element in terms of the image work of this model, the firm puts forward PurColor , which, as you will guess, strives to improve the quality, purity and vibration of the colors, which reach 1073 million.

Samsung offers this comparison between a normal panel and another with PurColor

For the rest, we found that the panel works with Mega Contrast, Contrast Enhancer, UHD Dimming, Dynamic Crystal Color, simple noise reduction and brightness detection .

The 50 Hz frequency has to be helped, especially in such a huge panel, to achieve the sharp images in quick moments that this model offers. Samsung does it with the Motion Xcelerator system , which seeks to smooth movements by introducing new frames. This is something especially important (and focused) in games.

And although it is a mid-range, of course, Samsung offers support for the already practically essential HDR with HDR 10+ , HLG and HGiG .

The point is its image modes, which adjust its values ​​depending on what is demanded. The model includes Filmmaker , Cinema, Natural and Game .

Audio

SAMSUNG TU75CU7175UXXC comes with a simple and common 2.0 system in which each of its two speakers offer 10 W RMS, making a total of 20 W for sound power. Likewise, in terms of processing we are left with a classic Dolby Digital Plus .

And although the above is totally conventional, we like to discover aspects such as Adaptive Sound, Multiroom Link , Q-Symphony, OTS Lite, dual audio via Bluetooth, audio selection descriptor or even compatibility with buds .

Software/SmartTV Analysis

247 techweek

This is the main interface of SAMSUNG 75CU7175

For this 2023 model they have chosen the most modern version of Tizen, which is Tizen 7.0. Although, I have to say that there are some smart functions that I miss or that, in my opinion, should already be found in any mid-range of recognized brands such as Samsung .

If there is something that it offers, and that is available in the model we are analyzing today, it is its free TV, Samsung TV+ , where you have a ton of channels with content broadcast 24/7.

You also have access to many applications (some already pre-installed and others that you can download yourself without problem, since you have a software store ).

As for mirroring , it is quite good, with the possibility of doing it from TV to mobile device or vice versa and including the option to launch only audio.

Something I’m missing is the voice assistant. Nowadays it is rare that a mid-range smart television does not come with an assistant, especially if the company itself has one, but it is the case. Be careful because Samsung solves this by offering compatibility with the Alexa speaker , but, of course, you have to have it or buy it separately.

This TV comes with a browser so you can access everything on the Internet that does not have a TV app. Likewise, it has a Media Home already incorporated, although you can place your favorite multimedia management system if you want to change it.

You have a Media Home manager . browser, Universal Programming Guide , many accessibility options , app casting , video calls through Google Meet, panel to configure video games.

PROS:

  • Tizen updated
  • Frameless design
  • Updated HbbTV
  • Updated Bluetooth
  • Camera support
  • There is a good quality price relation

CONS:

  • Energetic certification
  • Few smart functions
