Reasons For

Samsung UN65KS8500 Samsung UN65KS9000
2 Reasons For
50% Higher Subwoofer RMS Power
The Samsung UN65KS8500 is a 20W subwoofer RMS power TV. That's 10W higher than the Samsung UN65KS9000 (10W).

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

A higher RMS power to the subwoofer in your TV means the subwoofer will deliver more powerful bass, and will have more impact when watching films or listening to music.

More Popular
The Samsung UN65KS8500 is a more popular choice amongst buyers.
2 Reasons For
A Bit Larger Display Diagonal
The Samsung UN65KS9000 has a display diagonal of 65", whereas the Samsung UN65KS8500 is only a 64.5" TV (0.5" smaller).

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, 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. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Higher RMS Rated Power
The Samsung UN65KS9000 is a 60W RMS rated power TV. That's 40W higher than the Samsung UN65KS8500 (20W).

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.

Energy Efficiency

Running Costs Over 5 Years

TV running costs calculated based on an average of 5 hours of use per day. The running cost comprises the electricity cost when using the TV and the electricity standby cost. Compare all energy saving TVs.

Environmental Impact

We have calculated the amount of CO2 that will be generated by running each of these TVs for 5 years. We have then converted that into the number of tree seedlings that you would need to plant and grow for 10 years in order to offset that amount of CO2.
