LED: The LCD technology is the same in the cathode fluorescent lamp lit TVs and the LED lit TVs, but the LED lighting of the picture results in a sharper picture, more energy efficient using about 40% less electricity than a standard LCD TV, the LED backlighting system has no delay or warm up time, and the LED lit TVs are much thinner than the traditional LCD or plasma TVs.

4K (Ultra HD) [3840 x 2160]: The increasing availability of 4K, under the official moniker Ultra HD, can deliver consumers a greatly improved video display image for larger screen applications, and can greatly reduce the ability for viewers to see any visible pixel structure on the screen, unless you place yourself extremely close to the screen. This means even smoother edges and depth - in fact, when combined with faster screen refresh rates, 4K has the potential to deliver almost as much depth as 3D - without the need for glasses.

Samsung launched this model without the 3D display but molded this model with all the other latest features and specifications, making it a TV that one would be happy purchasing. We will call it the television that is enabled for the future.
UA55HU7200R displays perfectly balanced color temperatures with marginally over saturated colors. The ultra clear panel with a resolution of 3840X2160 improves the viewer’s experience with excellent display depth. The 4K UHD TV is the need of the hour as very soon all the streaming will be in ultra high definition (UHD).
Fast moving scenes are displayed with incredible clarity on UA55HU7200R as Samsung has incorporated its (CMR) Clear Motion Rate technology in this series 7 television models. The colors were observed to be marginally saturated, but the display had an excellent depth.
The film mode displays the best picture quality. The picture setting is found to be almost perfect but we did notice a very slight weakness in contrast in a dimmer room. In a brightly lit room, the contrast ratio did not show any distortions. The narrow viewing angle makes the darker tones appear brighter when viewed from the sides.
Samsung’s UA55HU7200R has two speakers with an audio output of 20W. We found the audio output a bit too low and not of the high quality one would expect a TV of this calibre or price range. While adequate for daily viewing, discerning listeners might find the sound quality to be slightly unbalanced with the sound being coherent as it resonates when it peaks in the low mid range while the higher frequencies get stifled. The bass response is of high quality in the mid-range. For most viewers though this may not be a problem. A sound bar takes care of this issue which will be an additional expense for this already high priced television.
The HD content display is found to be excellent for this 2D display television. The refresh rate of 100 Hz, a clear motion rate of 800 with mega contrast and wide color enhancer makes viewing on 55HU7200 simply awesome. The UHD dimming option automatically adjusts the brightness level to deliver deep blacks and pure white color and allows one to experience crystal clear pictures.
This television is not for the serious gamer as we observed a higher input lag even in the game mode. The other video modes are sports, vivid, cinema, game, dynamic and movie like in most televisions.
