Owner Reviews Are Excellent

On average, UN40H5203 owners rated this television as terrific.

Samsung Televisions Have Good Reviews

On average Samsung mid-size TVs have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all TVs built by Samsung.

Low Running Costs

Based on average energy prices we estimate that the 5 year running cost of the UN40H5203 is only £62, which makes it one of the more economic to run televisions of a similar type and age.

5 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with an OLED technology and we think the Samsung UE46H7000[plb_2232247_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
