Why Has it Scored 77?

purchasers report that it has good expert reviews and great user reviews with 100% of buyers recommending this TV to others. This TV has received an "Editor's Choice" award from Reviewed.com.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer TVs with better features are available. However this Samsung TV has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
The UE32J5500AK has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Supports Wi-Fi
Supports screen mirroring
Powerful quad core processor for faster performance
More vibrant colours for better images
Bringing a full multimedia experience into your living room
Watch movies from your USB
Smaller than average display diagonal
Does not feature OLED / QLED technology

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.
