Why Has it Scored 73?

multiple reviews mentioned that it has great user reviews with an average user rating of 87%, based on 21 reviews.
This PC monitor is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer LCD screens with better features are available. However it has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
This Samsung PC monitor has running costs of $360 over 5 years, which puts it in the most expensive 3% of all 1,900+ LCD screens that we have calculated running costs for.
The 300CD has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
3440 x 1440 pixels resolution
Big display diagonal
Does not have a built-in speaker

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each PC monitor by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age, value for money and running costs.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the PC monitor is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec PC monitors come to market, the older PC monitors will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
