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
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.
Like most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that were released in the last 12 months, the UN55KU6500 does not have a built-in camera.
Only One Loudspeaker
The Samsung UN55KU6500 is a one loudspeaker TV. Most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that have been on the market for the last year have between 1 and 11 loudspeakers.
Does Not Feature OLED Technology
Like most of the other TVs that have been available for a comparable time to the UN55KU6500, the UN55KU6500 does not feature OLED technology.
+5 More reasons against
Very Slow Motion Interpolation Frequency
The UN55KU6500 has a quite slow motion interpolation frequency (only 120 hertz) compared to most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that were launched in the last year. The average motion interpolation frequency of latest televisions is 580Hz, and the motion interpolation frequencies range from 60Hz to 3,000Hz.
Only Three HDMI Ports
Most new TVs have between one and four HDMI ports, including the UN55KU6500 which has three HDMI ports.
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
The UN55KU6500 is a two USB 2.0 port TV. Most of the other latest televisions have between one and two USB 2.0 ports.
Quite Low RMS Rated Power
The average RMS rated power of 4K and 8K TVs that are a similar age to the UN55KU6500 is 27W, and the RMS rated power range from 10W to 120W. With an RMS rated power of only 20 Watts, the Samsung UN55KU6500 has one of the lower RMS rated power amongst 4K and 8K TVs of this age.
