One more RF port Edit
The LG OLED55B6 has two RF ports, however the Samsung UN65KS9000 only has one RF port. Read more

RF stands for Radio Frequency and an RF port is an older type of input connector for TVs which is most commonly use for connecting cable TV and satellite TV feeds directly to the TV.

Multiple RF ports will allow you to connect multiple RF feeds to the TV at the same time. For example, if the TV has a built in satellite TV decoder then you could connect 2 different satellite dishes to the TV.

73% lighter Edit

Expert reviews are moderately better
Based on 2 reviews, the LG OLED55B6 has an average expert review score of 90%, whereas the Samsung UN65KS9000 has an average rating of 89% (based on 13 reviews).
5 Reasons For
10" larger screen size Edit
The Samsung UN65KS9000 has a screen size of 65"", whereas the LG OLED55B6 is only a 55"" TV (10" smaller). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen excluding any frame or border. One of the most important considerations when choosing the right screen size for your TV is the typical distance from which you will be viewing the screen. A good rule of thumb is to multiply the display diagonal by 2.5 to determine the viewing distance. So a 40 inch TV is best viewed from 100 inches away, which is equivalent to 8.3 feet or 2.54m. For home cinema setups and a truly immersive experience this ratio can be reduced to 1.2. This will give a screen size that fills 40 degrees of the viewer's field of vision. So if you viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

34% higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UN65KS9000 is a 60WW RMS rated power TV. That's 20W higher than the LG OLED55B6 (60WW). Read more

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

Vastly lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UN65KS9000 has an annual energy consumption of 130kWhkWh, however the LG OLED55B6 is a 212kWhkWh annual energy consumption TV (82kWh higher). Read more

The annual energy consumption is the total amount of energy that the TV will use over the course of a whole year, given typical usage levels.

A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.

Cheaper by $107
The Samsung UN65KS9000 costs $107.02 less than the LG OLED55B6.
5 shops are selling it
A greater number of sellers increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV.
