Samsung 43RU7470 43-inch Ultra HD 4K Smart LED TV
The Samsung UE43RU7470 is not the best looking TV on the block. It’s perfectly normal for a direct-lit LED TV at this level to have a 6cm profile but, seen front-on, one can’t help but notice the unfashionably broad 1.5cm bezel and the carbuncle of a boomerang stand.
The stand looks particularly silly in the smaller screen sizes, given it’s almost as wide as the display itself. It’s also quite impractical because of the way it sits so far in front of the screen. You might find it won’t go as nicely into an alcove as you hoped but it’s well worth considering wall-mounting on an extendable bracket if that’s the case.
Around the back, you’ll find some cable tidying stripes where you can trail your wires. They’re a good addition considering that this set does not benefit from the brilliant Samsung One Connect junction box. Instead, you’ll find 3x HDMI 2.0 and 2x USB 2.0 sockets waiting for you on the rear of the panel alongside the regulars like an optical audio-out connection and an Ethernet port. If you want to use headphones, then Bluetooth is your best bet.
