If you're looking for a TV and have a tight budget, the Insignia F30 2024 is the less expensive option. However, while both TVs have their drawbacks in overall picture quality and gaming performance, Samsung CU7000 offers slightly better performance in a fair range of content, including sports and news. The Samsung also has very good build quality, which may contribute to its higher price. In bright rooms, neither TV performs exceptionally well, but for dark room viewing, they both offer only fair to poor performance. Moreover, if you're interested in newer HDR formats like HDR10+ and HLG, the Samsung supports them, which the Insignia does not. Both TVs have similar input options and neither boast great speakers, so you may consider an external sound system with either choice. If accessibility features like voice commands are important to you, note that the Samsung CU7000 includes them. Therefore, despite its higher price, the Samsung CU7000 may offer a better viewing experience and useful features that could justify the extra cost. Give Feedback
