The Quick Glance
The UN50JU7100 by Samsung tops out at a 86 rating which is derived from a secret formula created by us to evaluate televisions objectively. The 50 inch screen and 3840 x 2160 pixels resolution are a couple of features that the rating is derived from. Active 3D, 4K Resolution, UHD Upscaling are the main feature set for this Samsung TV. Every single person has different things they like as it pertains to features of a television. It is because of this that everyone's personal rating of a TV will be different.

The Girl in Apartment 3D
Another great part of this TV is that it offers 3D capabilities. Because of this, the price tag is a little bit higher than others with the same specs. This Samsung 3D television offers an enhanced movie watching experience, if that is something you desire.

What About Size
The screen is 50 inches wide measured diagonally. Of course the actual screen size may differ from the one listed by Samsung. This one happens to measure 49.5 inches diagonally. A 50 inch TV is a great size for a main TV. Any smaller and it could possibly be difficult to view from far away. Size does not matter because a person should pick a TV that will fit in the space you need it to fit in!

Physical
How you connect to your Samsung TV is important. This UN50JU7100 has the following specs as it relates to input and output. It offers 4 HDMI ports , 1 component input , 1 composite input , 3 USB ports , 2 audio-out port , 1 RF cable input , 1 ethernet port and WiFi. Four HDMI ports is the most common number of ports and should be more than enough for most people. The old composite style connections are hardly supported by manufacturers and for a very good reason, it is considered old technology compared to the quality of new television being produced today. Newer than composite, component inputs are still useful due to the fact the connections can handle up to 1080p resolutions. This particular TV has wireless capabilities which means you can connect to the online world. This gives you an endless world to explore through your Samsung TV. An Ethernet port means having another way to get connected online. Connecting through an Ethernet port is much more reliable and will typically be faster than WiFi. All in all, the hardware of a TV has proven to be as significant as the screen itself. All the video inputs, internet connections, and even the audio in connections will determine what kind of shows you watch as well as the quality. Researching and buying the perfect TV is impossible without knowing the specs. It is always a good idea to investigate the TV in its entirety, not just the screen size!
