Reasons For

5 Reasons For
50% higher subwoofer RMS power Edit
The Samsung UN65KS8500 is a 20W subwoofer RMS power TV. That's 10W higher than the Samsung UN65KS9000 (10W). Read more

This is a measure of the continuous power (RMS power) produced by a subwoofer.

One more RF ports quantity Edit
The Samsung UN65KS8500 is a two RF ports quantity TV, whereas the Samsung UN65KS9000 only has one RF ports quantity. 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.

14% lighter Edit
The Samsung UN65KS8500 has a weight of 23.2kg. That's 3.2kg lighter than the Samsung UN65KS9000 (26.4kg). Read more

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.

A lighter weight TV will be easier to move around and to mount on a wall. Some of the larger, very heavy TVs may require lightweight partition walls to be reinforced before the TV could be mounted.

$637 cheaper
The Samsung UN65KS8500 costs $1,552.97, whereas the Samsung UN65KS9000 is $2,189.98.
More popular
The Samsung UN65KS8500 is a more popular choice amongst buyers. It ranks No. 1228 by sales volume in our TVs, but the Samsung UN65KS9000 ranks No. 9270.
3 Reasons For
A bit larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UN65KS9000 has a display diagonal of 65", whereas the Samsung UN65KS8500 is only a 64.5" TV (0.5" 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.

Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UN65KS9000 is a 60W RMS rated power TV. That's 40W higher than the Samsung UN65KS8500 (60W). 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.
