Appearance

Modern and polished, the sleek design naturally fills the contours of your space with refined design.

The sizes of the TV are 124 centimeters wide, 71 centimeters high, thickness – 5.8 centimeters. Weight 17.3 kg. Black color.

Inputs & Outputs

The panel has standard connectors: 

  • 2 USB 2.0;
  • 3 HDMI 2.0;
  • 1 Video component;
  • 1 Composite In (AV);
  • 1 LAN;
  • 1 Terrestrial/Cable Input;
  • 1 CI+ 1.4;

Unlike last year’s NU7100 where all inputs were facing sideways, some of the inputs on the RU7100 are facing outwards. Also model supports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. 

Game mode

Input lag at 1080 resolution reaches 10.8 ms., and at 4K resolution it reaches 10.7 ms.

  • 1080p @ 60 Hz: 10.8 ms
  • 1080p @ 60 Hz Outside Game Mode: 76.2 ms 
  • 4k @ 60 Hz: 10.8 ms
  • 4k @ 60 Hz + HDR: 10.9 ms
  • 4k @ 60 Hz @ 4:4:4: 10.7 ms
  • 4k @ 60 Hz Outside Game Mode: 77.4 ms
  • 4k @ 60 Hz With Interpolation: 74.5 ms

Both ‘Game’ mode and ‘PC’ mode have low input lag. A welcoming change is that when in ‘PC’ mode, you do not have to enable ‘Game’ mode for low input lag, unlike on higher-end Samsung TVs like the Q900R.

Chroma 4:4:4 is only properly shown when the input icon is set to ‘PC,’ denoting that the TV is in ‘PC’ mode.

Sound

Output power 20W. 2х10W dynamics.

The sound on the Samsung RU7100 is decent, almost identical to NU7100. It can get decently loud but may not be loud enough for large or noisy environments. It doesn’t have deep bass and won’t produce any thump or rumble, but it will deliver clear and intelligible dialog.

Sound can be transmitted via Bluetooth.
