7 Reasons For
Mid-size TVs manufactured by Samsung have excellent reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all televisions (not just mid-size TVs) and found that Samsung also has excellent reviews across its entire range.
A Top Selling TV
The UE40K5100 is a popular choice amongst customers who purchased TVs in the last 3 months.
Only Released Three Months Ago
Being released just three months ago, this Samsung television is likely to have better features.
Good Sound Quality
One Samsung UE40K5100 owner who reviewed it concluded that it had good sound quality. Deneb wrote in their review on Amazon in August “Nice enough picture and sound (I'm not a HI-FI expert) for me.”.
One Samsung UE40K5100 reviewer who bought it thought it had good technical guidance. This month Deneb said in their review of the Samsung UE40K5100 “The guide said make sure it was not in 'store' mode”.
Price Has Recently Dropped by £23.88

+2 More reasons for
Has One Smart Mode
The number of smart modes found on the Samsung UE40K5100 is more than most mid-size TVs that have been on the market for around the same time as it. The most frequently 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 TV.
7 Reasons Against
One customer who purchased it concluded that it was not retro. This month Deneb scored it 3 stars and mentioned “The spindly legs which seem poorly affixed and 60s retro to me” in their review.
Does Not Have a WiFi Connection
The UE40K5100 does not have a WiFi connection, unlike most of the other mid-size TVs that came out in the last 12 months which have a WiFi connection.
We think you might also be interested in other TVs which also have a WiFi connection including the Samsung HG32EE590[plb_3753265_price], or the Philips 32PFS5501[plb_3351335_price].
Not Smart TV
The UE40K5100 is not Smart TV, unlike most of the other mid-size TVs that have been around for around the same time as the UE40K5100 which are Smart TV.
TVs which are Smart TV that might be worth considering include the Philips 32PFS5501[plb_3351335_price], or the Hisense H40M3300[plb_3450929_price] which also has a higher rating.
Not 3D Compatible
The UE40K5100 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other recently released mid-size TVs are also not 3D compatible.
If you would prefer a television that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the UE40JU6640[pl_2858246_price], or the UE32J6270[pl_3149573_price] both from Samsung which also has a higher rating.

Only One USB 2.0 Port
The Samsung UE40K5100 is a one USB 2.0 port TV. Most of the other mid-size TVs that have been available for the last year have between one and two USB 2.0 ports.

Full HD TVs have a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative Full HD televisions currently available including the 43LH510[pl_3382071_price], or the 43LH590[pl_3382739_price] both from LG or the Hisense H40M2600[plb_3365573_price] which has a better Rating.
