Reasons For

Samsung UN65KS8500 Samsung UN70KU6300
4 Reasons For
Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Samsung UN65KS8500 is a 240Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 120Hz faster than the Samsung UN70KU6300 (120Hz).

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

User Reviews Are Moderately Better
Based on 237 user reviews, the average review score of the Samsung UN65KS8500 is 98%, however the average rating of the Samsung UN70KU6300 is 96% (based on 439 reviews).
3 Reasons For
5.5" Larger Display Diagonal
The Samsung UN70KU6300 has a display diagonal of 70", but the Samsung UN65KS8500 is only a 64.5" TV (5.5" 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.
