Samsung 2019 NU7100 owners treads

I don't see threads for the 2019 Samsung NU7100 Smart 4K UHD TV series, so I'll start one.

I have the 75 inch UN75NU7100FXZA version and so far happy with it.

I updated ver 1251.0 firmware to ver 1260 with USB as it said "no updates at this time" when I tried the internet connection on the TV.

Great picture after adjusting the setting to what I found online:

After trying out some recommended settings for this set, I have a question:

When I go into settings/Picture/Expert Settings
I don't see the HDR Settings anywhere?
The HDR+ mode should be between Contrast Enhancer & Film mode?

Also I can't find the settings for watching HDR content via an HDMI connection, it is important to set the 'HDMI UHD Color' on for each HDMI input that will receive the HDR content. This will permit the HDMI port to transmit all the bandwidth needed for HDR and tells the TV to expect a 10-bit color signal on that input.

Thanks for mentioning this because on my Samsung set, I had the same issue until I looked for the firmware on the support page and flashed it myself via USB. It's amazing that Samsung can't point users to the update on their TVs.

The NU7100 is a 2018 model, not 2019 and there is already an owner's thread (not tread) for it. The 2019 model is the RU7100.

Reason I thought it was a 2019 model, was at Fred Meyer where I got it, and the salesman said to me before I bought it, that it was a new 2019 model. They do not have the RU model on the floor and being 2019 is half over, I believed him.


Plus this I saw online:


Table of Specs & Features
Before we talk about comparison between Samsung UN75RU7100 and UN75NU7100, we need to know the specs and features of those two TVs. They key specs and features of Samsung UN75RU7100 and UN75NU7100 can be found in the table of specs & features below. I’m sure that you would be interested to look at it before we talk more about comparison between those two TVs.
