What is the Samsung UE48JU7000T? The UE48JU7000T is a UHD TV that can be yours for just £1400 ? miles below the many thousands of pounds demanded by the Samsung ?SUHD' TVs we've tested recently. Why is it so relatively cheap? As well as being substa...
We were hugely ready to love the UE48JU7000T based on its price, specification and Samsung's previous UHD form ? including its recent HDR TVs. However, while it certainly gets some things very right its motion problems ultimately undermine its UHD ta...

Key Features

Thickness

The thickness of a TV measured from the back of the TV to the front of the TV. Curved TVs will have quite a big depth as this dimension is measured from the back of the centre of the screen to the front of the edges of the screen.

A thinner TV has the advantage of appearing more elegant and will also mean that the TV will not stick out as much when mounted on a wall.

Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency Class

LG 55UF850 LG 55UF950 Samsung UE55JU7000

Running Costs Over 5 Years

TV running costs calculated based on an average of 5 hours of use per day. The running cost comprises the electricity cost when using the TV and the electricity standby cost. Compare all energy saving TVs.

Environmental Impact

We have calculated the amount of CO2 that will be generated by running each of these TVs for 5 years. We have then converted that into the number of tree seedlings that you would need to plant and grow for 10 years in order to offset that amount of CO2.
