4 Reasons For

Samsung Has Excellent Reviews for Its TVs

On average Samsung 4K and 8K TVs have excellent ratings as do all TVs built by Samsung.

Just Released Eight Months Ago

This television has only been on the market for eight months. Newer TVs like this one are likely to have more advanced features.

Supports Smart TV Features

Like most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that were launched around the same time as the UN55KU6500, the UN55KU6500 supports smart TV features.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other televisions which support smart TV features currently available including a cheaper television such as the Sony KD-43XD8005[plb_3758729_price] or you might consider a better rated television such as the Samsung UE55KU6500[plb_3346959_price].

It is worth also looking at other televisions which also support smart TV features including the LG 55UH6157[plb_3862809_price].

Has a WiFi Connection

has a WiFi connection

The UN55KU6500 has a WiFi connection, as do most of the other similar spec televisions that have been available for a comparable time to the UN55KU6500.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative TVs with a WiFi connection currently available including cheaper televisions such as the KD-43XD8005[pl_3758729_price], or the KD-49XD7004[pl_3904337_price] both from Sony.

We compared all the other TVs which also have a WiFi connection to this television and we think the LG 55UH6157[plb_3862809_price] is also worth considering.

8 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

The UN55KU6500 is not 3D compatible, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that have been available for a similar time to the UN55KU6500 are also not 3D compatible.

TVs which are 3D compatible that might be worth considering include the Panasonic TX-50DX750[plb_3392161_price], or the Sony KD-65XD9305[plb_3301679_price]; or the LG 55UH850[plb_3339540_price].
