The Samsung UE65HU7500 is the 65" version of the UE55HU7500 that we reviewed in full. The Samsung UE55H7500 is based on the 2013 F9000 series. The addition of an HEVC decoder, HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 ports make it UHD/4K compatible straight out of the box. However, with a One Connect box, you can update the F9000, so the difference between the two models isn't as clear-cut as you might initially think. While the HU7500 offers good overall picture quality, we preferred the models with AU Optronics UHD panels, which have better responsiveness and contrast. The only problem is that they're generally a little more expensive.
