Samsung UN7250 Opinions

Hey everyone! I purchased a Samsung UN6840 on super bowl Sunday. It had a great picture but had horrible sound and would randomly shut off. After reading threads on here I decided to return it.

I went to Best Buy today and they recommended that I get the Samsung UN7250. It was curved and had a beautiful picture. The price was right too. I went home and checked consumer reports and it was rated number 8. It is rated very well on Best Buy's website though. What are your opinions on it? Would there be a better option for around that price range? I pretty much just watch thr news, prime time tv and movies occasionally. I typically buy top rated stuff so the consumers rating is bothering me a bit. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I would not buy this one if it was me, it has 60hz refresh rate and does not handle motion good at all.

I returned one awhile back do to poor quality and blur.

You can the 65" HU9000 series for 3899.99 and get free curved soundbar, 32" Samsung TV, and UHD Video Pack. Straight from Samsung. (This is Samsungs top model for 2014)

Or you can buy the new 65JU7100 2015 model from Best Buy right now for 2999.99 which has allot of improvements.

Current Sets:
Sony XBR65X900B Samsung UN65JS9000
PN64F8500 Plasma SOLD ;(

Also, I believe that it's a 120hz refresh rate. At least that's what it says online.

there are many people who think it is a 60 hz tv, the motion is not good. best buy is gonna start having big sales soon on the 2014 tvs.

your best bet, is to spend just a tad more and get the 55" JU7500. it will blow the 7250 right outta the water in every area, its 1999 and curved. it has a high motion rating, auto depth enhancer, and purcolor. and it has the new operating system with better remote. you wont be disappointed.

TV; SAMSUNG 65 HU9000(current) SAMSUNG 65 8550 4k (30 days) SONY XBR65X850B 4k(owned for 2 weeks), previous was SAMSUNG 65 7100

I have been to my local Costco a few times within the last week and walk by this TV all the time. They have the Costco version (HU7200). That's the "top" 4K TV they stock at that particular warehouse. It looks decent, but needs improvement. I would either suggest the JU7100 or JU7500 series that was just released and go with a size that fits your budget. If your budget allows, the 65 inch HU9000 is going for $3500 while 55 inch version is $2999.

P.S. Not trying to cause an annoyance but if you're looking for 4:4:4 4K/60hz with a PC on the 7200/7250 don't count on it, I tried a thumb drive with a proper test image and it failed the chroma test.

what do you watch most of? do you love the curve or just want a good picture? if you can get up to 2000$ a nice thought is the panasonic ax800u Good blacks good contrast, excellent colors good motion good up scaling.

Thanks for the replies! We mostly watch prime time tv, news, movies and basketball/football games occasionaly.

I had the 6840 and feel like the picture on the 7250 is washed out compared to that. I don't need to necessarily have the curve. I've read that it's kind of a joke. Any other opinions on what I should do would be grestly appreciated!

How does everyone know that these are good tvs if they haven't been released yet?

How does Sony compare to Samsung? I saw the xbr 850b and it had a great picture.

I went to look at the XBR 850b again and that has a wonderful picture. It was next to the XBR 800b and it blew it away. What do you guys think of that tv? Any other suggestions? I'd like to get something this weekend.

I had the 850b for 2 weeks. Pretty good picture but the motion is very under powered with motionflow 240. The 2015 version has been bumped up to motionflow 960. That's 4x the power, sony realized 240 was way too low for such a tv.

Thanks for the response! So is the 2015 model still the 850b? What about the un8550? Or would I be better off waiting until the new tv's are released?

the 8550 is decent, but at this point you'd be better off with the JU7100(2015 model). the 850b sort of has 2 new versions, the 850c and the 900c, both of which will be much better than the 850b. so if i were you id look at the samsung ju7100/sony 850c/900c(but the sonys wont be out for 6-8 weeks) and i guess take a look at the panasonic 800u too lol

Okay sounds good! So the JU7100 should be in best buy stores soon? I saw that Crutchfield had them already.

thats bestbuy nation wide . there not on display anywhere but we can sell them. they arent slated to go on display untill the 22nd. The stores are given vendor displays paid for buy samsung and samsung wants them back (end of life of product) they are sent back. Some stores can eat the price of a tv and put one up. This would be up to the local general manager.

id sugguest looking into the panasonic that ray is laughing at? most bestbuys don't have them on display, the colors are extremely rich and vibrate on them almost wet looking

How would I find out if they have any in stock? They aren't even listed on the best buy website.

call around and ask. make sure you let them know that its a 2015 model, perhaps ask to speak to a manager.

Alright cool. I'll do that tomorrow. And the 55" JU7100 should be a better tv than the UN7250 and the UN8550?

The 7250 no doubt. It definitely has more picture quality features than the 8550 and a newer picture processor and already comes with the tizen operating system (the 8550 needs a 400 dollar upgrade to get the new operating system)

Awesome! I just called and they don't have any of the 2015 models in stock yet. I guess I'll have to wait.
