Why Has it Scored 76?

owners report that it has superb user reviews with an average user rating of 94%, based on 20 reviews.
At over a year old this television is slightly out of date, and newer TVs with more up to date technology are available.
This TV has running costs of £130 over 5 years, which is pretty average compared to the other 5,200+ televisions that we have calculated running costs for.
It has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Only hd ready
Smaller than average display diagonal

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.
