5 Reasons For
Samsung Has Excellent Reviews for Its Televisions
Samsung has excellent average ratings for its 4K and 8K TVs as well as across its entire TV range compared to other brands.
Just Released Eight Months Ago
Samsung only released the UN65KS8500 eight months ago.
Supports Smart TV Features
The UN65KS8500 supports smart TV features. Most of the other recently released 4K and 8K TVs also support smart TV features.
Has a WiFi Connection
The UN65KS8500 has a WiFi connection. Most of the other latest comparable spec TVs also have a WiFi connection.
Three USB 2.0 Ports
The Samsung UN65KS8500 has more USB 2.0 ports than most of the 4K and 8K TVs that have been on the market for the last year. Most of the televisions that have been available for a comparable time to the UN65KS8500 only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, however this Samsung TV has three USB 2.0 ports.
5 Reasons Against
Not 3D Compatible
The UN65KS8500 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other similar spec TVs that were released around the same time as the UN65KS8500 are also not 3D compatible.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Most new 4K and 8K TVs do not have a built-in camera. The Samsung UN65KS8500 is no exception to this as it too does 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 Samsung UN65JS9500[plb_2756557_price] which is also higher rated.
Only IEEE 802.11a WiFi Standard
This TV supports an IEEE 802.11ac WiFi standard, which is the most frequently supported WiFi standard on comparable spec TVs that came out in the last 12 months.
Does Not Feature OLED Technology
Most TVs that are a comparable age to the UN65KS8500 do not feature OLED technology. The Samsung UN65KS8500 is no exception to this as it too does not feature OLED technology.
We compared this TV to all the other TVs with an OLED technology and we think the LG 55EF9509[plb_3155972_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
+2 More reasons against
Quite Low RMS Rated Power
