Setting up is really easy, there is no center stand to attach, just a couple of chrome legs that click into place on either side of the tv. Only 2 wires go into the back of the tv, a mains lead and one cable which goes to a connector box that can be placed at the back or underneath the tv. The connector box has 4 HDMI inputs, 2 USB inputs, an optical out to connect the tv to a soundbar, plus an aerial input for terrestrial broadcasts and a connector for satellite broadcasts. A USB stick can be used to record broadcasts, pause and rewind live tv or time shift broadcasts. There is no facility to record one channel.while watching another, the only way to do that would be to use a seperate Freesat or Sky set top box.
The first thing I always notice with Samsung tv's is they look good straight out of the box, I've never felt the need to calibrate it or play around with the picture controls as everything looks just right as set at the factory. First impressions were extremely favourable with the extra brightness of the Quantum Dot panel being very noticeable which, combined with the huge contrast ratio, makes for a very realistic picture producing deep blacks, bright highlights and strikingly vibrant colours. The Samsung Quantum Dot tv's produce arguably the best picture available right now. Upscaling of HD pictures is excellent while 4K HDR content from YouTube is jaw droppingly good. Just take into account that because the HD upscaling is so good, the difference between full HD and 4K is subtle but noticable, but don't expect the leap up in picture quality you get when going from SD pictures to HD pictures. I don't subscribe to broadband so I use my mobile phone as a WiFi hotspot and tether it to the tv to take advantage of the smart features. The 4G signal gives me about 30mbs download speed which is considerably faster than the normal broadband speed in my area, and exceeds the recommended 26mbs download speed required to stream UHD content. It also means using a LOT of mobile data and I found it hard to believe I actually used 50gbs of data in the first month of owning this tv so a totally unlimited data plan is a necessity, whether it be using mobile data or regular broadband. 4K streaming using normal broadband probably won't be fast enough, and anyone wishing to stream UHD content from Netflix or Amazon will probably find the need to install fibre optic broadband instead.
My picture settings will probably raise a few eyebrows as the so called 'experts' recommend using the 'Movie' mode with a reduced backlight and the sharpness control turned down to zero. Fine if you want a picture that looks like an aging CRT display which you have to watch with all the lights out, but that is not for me, I want a nice bright sharp picture that has the 'wow' factor. In that respect I always choose the 'Dynamic' picture setting adjusted to my personal preference.That includes leaving the backlight, contrast, brightness, sharpness and colour controls at the factory default settings, but adjusting the dynamic contrast to the 'mid' setting rather than high, and the colour tone from 'cool' to 'standard'. This tames the highlights while bringing out hidden detail in shadow areas and making skin tones more natural. These so called 'experts' recommend turning off all picture enhancements which includes the 'digital noise reduction' and 'motion control'. For a start if you turn off noise reduction you will get horrendous digital artifacts, especially on standard definition pictures, but much reduced on HD pictures, plus a jerky stuttering picture if you turn off the motion control feature. The digital artefacts are caused by the tv trying to upscale the picture to near 4K quality which is impossible for standard definition pictures, it just makes them look even worse, so noise reduction is absolutely essential to keep the picture looking at least acceptable for those broadcasts, even if there is a slight loss of detail. It's the price you have to pay for a panel which is capable of displaying such excellent and breath taking HD and UHD pictures.
This tv has twin tuners capable of receiving both 'Freeview' terrestrial broadcasts and 'Freesat' satellite broadcasts. For anyone who hasn't got a satellite dish I would strongly recommend getting one. There is a far greater choice of programmes on Freesat, the bandwidth isn't so restricted so SD pictures look a great deal better than on Freeview, plus there is the option to scan for all satellite broadcasts from the Astra satellite rather than just the Freesat channels. Although many of those will be encrypted, it does open up the opportunity to search for channels that are showing test transmissions of 4K material. One of those will be Freesat 4K which is currently running test transmissions of UHD content on channel 998, so you can watch and wow your friends with great 4K pictures without the need to stream them from YouTube, the pictures from NASA UHD TV are particularly good. There is also talk that the BBC will begin testing 4K broadcasts later this year and will be transmitting Wimbledon in 4K. In this respect the KS7500 series and above are future proof in having an HEVC satellite decoder built in so no need to buy a separate set top box when the time comes.
The forgotten part of buying a new flat panel tv is the sound quality, with many sounding tinny and lacking depth. That is something that cannot be levelled at the Samsung 43KS7500, the sound quality is extraordinarily good, so before rushing out to buy a sound bar take a listen first. Samsung have included a 40 watt 2.1 sound system in this tv which really delivers the goods. There are 2 stereo speakers plus a 'woofer' to handle the bass content. It's not going to blow the windows out but it does deliver a surprisingly good clear powerful sound, especially when the 'music' setting is chosen. The tv is also Bluetooth enabled so if you have a Bluetooth speaker or sound system then you can utilise that facility too.
The only negative I can find with this tv, and also my previous Samsung tv is poor viewing angles. You can't afford to sit too far to the side of this tv without the picture starting to lose contrast. I was hoping Samsung would have fixed this problem by now but obviously they haven't been reading the negativity about this problem in various customer reviews. It's not a deal breaker because the rest of the tv is so very good, but it is something to be aware about when settling down in the evening to enjoy one of the best tv's in it's class.
In summary this is a fantastic tv capable of producing the best HD and UHD pictures around right now. It's future proof in having HDR 1000 plus a 4K satellite decoder, features that are not found on cheaper 4K tv's. LG have OLED while Samsung have the Quantum Dot display panels. Both are state of the art right now with Quantum Dot panels producing 50% brighter pictures than OLED but not producing quite so deep blacks, although you would be hard pushed to find fault with the tv in that respect. Quantum Dot displays are also considerably more affordable than OLED displays, and with my reservations over LG tv's in general, I'm extremely pleased I went with Samsung once again, despite the less than perfect viewing angles.
There is just one thing to add, the Samsung 43KS7500 is priced the same as the Samsung 49KS7000, the only difference being that the KS7000 is a flat panel tv. If a curved screen isn't a priority then you can get a larger screen with identical features for the same price. You pay the money and take your choice, they are both excellent televisions that definitely won't disappoint and should give many years of fantastic viewing, plus the 43KS7500 is a lovely looking tv even when switched off. The bezel less curved screen and the highly polished piano black back of the tv make it one of the prettiest tv's around right now.

Update: I've added some photos taken straight from the tv with no editing so you can judge for yourself the kind of picture you can expect from this tv.
That out of the way, we looked at a huge range of TVs in Currys, where the lighting is turned down and pictures are all whacked up to Death Ray. So none of the colours are real and if you want green to look green and not GREEEEEN you have to Torment A Salesperson to dial the saturation and kryptonite down on all the TVs you want to assess.
We really liked the equivalent 4K Sony. We had also decided against a curved screen.
In spite of the very helpful people in Currys, we then went to our local independent retailer. £50 cheaper, pictures set to watchable and informed advice. Plus fee delivery. Today. Or tomorrow if you prefer. Or in the back of your car if you wish.
Seeing it in the flesh and with the picture set to sensible, the Samsung had the edge, and loved th curved screen which is less severe than we had imagined. We were concerned that the feet at each end would make it awkward to arrange where we wanted it to go.
However when we got it home it looked simply fabulous on the oiled beech entertainment hub unit.
Setting up is complex as installation is now a long way from BBC1 & 2, ITV, ch4 and 5 if you had a lucky aerial. However, it was straightforward and you are led through the stages, ending up with everything in order and a huge array of viewing options which we have still to delve into.
One great point which might not be obvious in the shop is the upscaling of your pre HD archive. This TV does a splendid job of making the best of your old stuff.
Add to that its 10 bit architecture over the standard 8 bit and you are future proof, which in the TV world of today means you won't have to upgrade again for, oh, weeks.
With a good USB Pen drive you can record TV programmes or pause live and rewind, fabulous!
I just connected my 16 year old satalite dish and the tv can detect and scan in these channels too. However in order to switch between Terrestial and Sat channels, one needs to find the favourites sub-menu and do it from there. The HD Sat channels again offer a far crisper and cleaner image than any of the none HD terrestrial ones.
Over all an amazing piece of kit just a pity Samsung do not do a non-curved screen option of the same size.
