4 Reasons For
We calculated the average reviews for all Samsung TVs and specifically for Samsung large TVs and found that in both cases Samsung had excellent reviews compared to other manufacturers.
Only Released Five Months Ago
The UE55K5100 was only relased by Samsung five months ago.
Has One Smart Mode
The UE55K5100 has a greater number of smart modes than most large TVs that came out around the same time as it. The most frequently found smart mode is Game, but this smart mode is not found on this TV. The smart modes Movie are also found on this television.
The weights of new similar spec TVs range from 1.2kg to 44kg, and the average weight is 21kg. The Samsung UE55K5100 is one of the lighter large TVs that were launched around the same time as the UE55K5100 (only 15.6 kilograms) amongst large TVs of this age.
10 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a WiFi Connection
The Samsung UE55K5100 does not have a WiFi connection, unlike most of the other large TVs that were launched in the last 12 months.
The UE55K5100 does not have a built-in camera, although this is within the context that most of the other large TVs that came out in the last year also do not have a built-in camera.
+7 More reasons against
Quite Slow Refresh Rate
The UE55K5100 has a very slow refresh rate (only 50 hertz) compared to most of the other recently released large TVs. Across all the latest large TVs the refresh rates range from 50Hz to 1,000Hz.
Only One Processor Core
Most large TVs that were released in the last year have between one and seven processor cores, including the Samsung UE55K5100 which has one processor core.
Does Not Feature OLED Technology
Like most of the other televisions that have been available for around the same time as the UE55K5100, the UE55K5100 does not feature OLED technology.
Only Two HDMI Ports
Most televisions that were released around the same time as the UE55K5100 have between one and four HDMI ports, including the Samsung UE55K5100 which has two HDMI ports.
Only One USB 2.0 Port
Most similar spec TVs that are a comparable age to the UE55K5100 have between one and three USB 2.0 ports, including the UE55K5100 which has one USB 2.0 port.
With a thickness of 98 millimeters, the Samsung UE55K5100 has one of the thickest thicknesses amongst large TVs of this age. Recently released large TVs have thicknesses of between 17mm and 100mm.
If you would consider a television with a thicker thickness then you might want to look at the Hisense H50M3300 (£429.00) (85mm), or the Changhong UHD55D5000 (£516.36) (90mm) which is also cheaper.
