Why Has it Scored 78?

multiple reviews mentioned that it has exceptional user reviews with 97% of buyers recommending this TV to others.
This TV is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer TVs with better features are available. However it has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
This Samsung TV has running costs of $77 over 5 years, which is pretty average compared to the other 5,400+ TVs that we have calculated running costs for.
The UN40H5003A has some great features:
Has a game mode
Has a desktop stand included

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each TV 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 TV is recommended.

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