Anything less than an NU7100 is hard to justify, but the Samsung panels are so good that even the 6800 is barely passable.

I imagine this NU6900 vs NU7100 is the same as the MU6290 vs MU6300 models where they start to cut 1 input to save some money.

I was looking at buying the 55” version of this at Costco yesterday for $679.99 to put in our home gym. I found that the if your viewing angle isn’t dead center, then picture isn’t all that great.

I’ll wait until I find something better.

On a related note, I created a thread about Budget 4K TVs-As-Monitors referencing the NU7100:

Thread: Costco Budget 4K TV-as-Monitor Buyer's Guide
Source: http://forums.redflagdeals.com/costco-b ... e-2230161/

=====================================

Folks looking for 40"+ 4K monitors have two options, TVs around $500, or monitors closer to $1k.

I regard the following two TVs as far better value for money than the 32" IPS 4K monitors hovering around $500.

(1) The Samsung 40" VA NU7100 - $439.99

A great TV with very low input lag, good colors, uniformity, and contrast. Cons include limited viewing angles, for many this won't be a problem as it doesn't impinge until you're laughably off center.

https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/samsung/nu7100
The Samsung NU7100 is a decent 4k LED TV. It has decent picture quality with a good native contrast ratio but lacks more advanced features to improve the dark room performance such as local dimming. It has extremely low input lag which is excellent for gamers but the response time is only decent so some blur is visible behind fast moving objects. When viewed at an angle the image also loses accuracy, so the best picture is reserved for those directly in front of the TV.

Update 6/15/2018: The TV's picture settings have been reset and the contrast ratio has been remeasured at a higher value of 5397:1. It is likely that the calibration raised black levels slightly, reducing the native contrast ratio. The new measurement is in-line with other Samsung TVs like the NU7300.
(2) The LG 43" IPS UK6300 - $519.99

https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/lg/uk6300
The LG UK6300 is a decent RGBW IPS TV with wide viewing angles, so it remains accurate when viewed at an angle. It also has low input lag so feels responsive. Unfortunately, when viewed in a dark room, blacks appear gray due to the low native contrast ratio, but when viewed in a bright room, this isn't noticeable. The out of the ordinary "RGBW" pixel structure also can cause smaller details and straight lines to lose sharpness, especially when used as a PC monitor.
Comparison
If you've got a bright room with wide seating, then the LG UK6300 is a better choice due to the better viewing angles. But for a dark room with seating directly in front, then the Samsung NU7100 is better due to its better contrast ratio and better black uniformity. The LG UK6300 also has better reflection handing, and you can place it in a room with many light sources whereas the Samsung NU7100 can get brighter to fight bright room glare.

That is really strange I am on the lower model of this panel and everything seems dead center, no issues with viewing angles either. Thought this would be a good deal based on those and the fact this panel has more bells and whistles. Also, before somebody chimes in and says that this wouldn't make a good gaming panel I ask; What are you playing your consoles on? My X looks gorgeous on this baby cousin.

My son is using a 40" NU7100 for his One S until a bigger screen comes along on Boxing Day. It looks absolutely fine and is only "worse" when side-by-side to a vehemently more expensive panel. His angles are perfectly fine, really I think people complain too much sometimes about trivial things. (incoming!)

You're based in Chilliwack, BC but Gibby's is based in St Catharines, ON. I don't get it.
