8 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

Television expert review website CNET.com scored this TV 70 out of 100.

Samsung Has Excellent TV Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Samsung TVs and also specifically for Samsung 4K and 8K TVs and found that in both cases Samsung had excellent ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Only Released Eight Months Ago

This television was released just eight months ago, so it is likely to have more advanced features than some of the older TVs.

Supports Smart TV Features

The UN65KS8000 supports smart TV features, as do most of the other comparable spec televisions that have been available for around the same time as the UN65KS8000.

We compared all the other televisions which support smart TV features to this television and we think the Philips 43PUT6401[plb_3343241_price], the Salora 55UHC9202[plb_3327188_price], and the LG 58UF8300[plb_3332738_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a WiFi Connection

has a WiFi connection

The Samsung UN65KS8000 has a WiFi connection, as do most of the other comparable spec TVs that came out around the same time as the UN65KS8000.

We compared this television to all the other televisions with a WiFi connection and we think the Samsung UE49KS8090[plb_3402300_price], the Philips 49PUT6401[plb_3323884_price], and the Sony KD-65ZD9[plb_3772196_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Three USB 2.0 Ports

three USB 2.0 ports

The UN65KS8000 has more USB 2.0 ports than most of the televisions that were released around the same time as the UN65KS8000. This TV is a three USB 2.0 port television compared to most of the similar spec televisions that have been around for around the same time as the UN65KS8000 which only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

The UN65KS8000 is a two RF port television.

Chart Edit

Very Thin

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the UN65KS8000, the Samsung UN65KS8000 is not 3D compatible.

If you want a television that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the TX-58DX800[pl_3332598_price], or the TX-58DX900[pl_3342373_price] both from Panasonic or the LG 55UF8509[plb_3537337_price].

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Samsung UN65KS8000 does not have a built-in camera, although keep in mind that most of the other recently released 4K and 8K TVs also do not have a built-in camera.

We think you might also be interested in other televisions which also have a built-in camera including the UN65JS9500[pl_2756557_price], or the UE60JU6400[pl_2894934_price] both from Samsung or the LG 75UH855[plb_3350140_price] which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The UN65KS8000 does not feature OLED technology. Most of the other latest 4K and 8K TVs also do not feature OLED technology.

There are a number of alternative TVs which also feature OLED technology which you might want to look at including the U65S8806[pl_3212361_price], or the U55S8806[pl_3213698_price] both from TCL-Digital or the LG 55EF9509[plb_3155972_price].
