Detailed facts: Samsung RU7100 or LG UM7300
The Samsung RU7100 is the most affordable Samsung TV of the year 2019. Its equipment corresponds to its low price: The RU7100 is a 4K TV without great bells and whistles. The 60 Hz VA panel provides good black and pleasant contrast, but the viewing angle is not very wide. However, the contrast is not sufficient for HDR content, which is no wonder considering the price.
The LG UM7300 is the same as the RU7100 in terms of price and features – but fundamentally different on a technical level. This TV is better suited for bright rooms, which is due to the IPS panel. The characteristics of these panels are far better reflection handling, higher brightness and a wider viewing angle. However, the performance suffers in dark rooms because black cannot be displayed with a lot of depth. As a result, HDR is just as poorly displayed.
