This Samsung TV is rated A for energy efficiency. The UE32K5100 is in the cheapest 18% of all 332 new mid-size TVs that we have analysed for 5 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the UE32K5100 is only £62.

+4 More reasons for
Has One Smart Mode
The number of smart modes found on the Samsung UE32K5100 is more than most new mid-size TVs. The most commonly found smart mode is Game, but this smart mode is not found on this television. The smart modes Cinema|Game|Natural are also found on this Samsung television.
Very Low Annual Energy Consumption
The annual energy consumptions of mid-size TVs that were released around the same time as the UE32K5100 range from 37kWh to 200kWh, and the average annual energy consumption is 81kWh. At only 54 kilowatt hours, the UE32K5100 has a quite low annual energy consumption compared to most of the other new mid-size TVs.
The average weight of televisions that have been around for around the same time as the UE32K5100 is 9.4kg, and the weights range from 1kg to 36kg. At only 4.9 kilograms, the UE32K5100 is fairly light compared to most of the other recently released mid-size TVs.
7 Reasons Against
One person said in their reviews that the Samsung UE32K5100 was not retro. In September this year Deneb said in their review of the Samsung UE32K5100 on Amazon “The spindly legs which seem poorly affixed and 60s retro to me”.
Does Not Have a WiFi Connection
The UE32K5100 does not have a WiFi connection, unlike most of the other mid-size TVs that came out in the last year.
We think you might also be interested in alternative televisions which also have a WiFi connection including the UE32J4580 (£284.07), or the UE32K5500 (£199.00) both from Samsung or the Hisense H40M2600 (£249.00) which also has a higher rating.
Not Smart TV
The Samsung UE32K5100 is not Smart TV, unlike most of the other new mid-size TVs which are Smart TV.
If you would prefer a television that is Smart TV then you might also want to look at the UE32J4580 (£284.07), or the UE32K5500 (£199.00) both from Samsung or the Hisense H40M2600 (£249.00).
Not 3D Compatible
The Samsung UE32K5100 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other comparable spec TVs that have been on the market for around the same time as the UE32K5100 are also not 3D compatible.
If you want a television that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the Samsung UE40JU6640 which also has a higher Rating.
+4 More reasons against

Does Not Feature OLED Technology
Like most of the other TVs that are a similar age to the UE32K5100, the Samsung UE32K5100 does not feature OLED technology.
It is worth considering alternative TVs which also feature OLED technology including the LG 32LX300 which also has a higher Rating.
