Samsung Has Good Reviews for Its TVs
We calculated the average ratings for all Samsung televisions and also specifically for Samsung 4K and 8K TVs and found that in both cases Samsung had good ratings.
Supports Smart TV Features
The Samsung UN65KS8000 supports smart TV features. Most of the other latest TVs also support smart TV features.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other televisions which support smart TV features currently available including because of it's better review score, the UN65JS9500[pl_2756557_price], or the UN65KS8500[pl_3430689_price] both from Samsung or the LG 55UF8509[plb_3537337_price].
Has a WiFi Connection
The Samsung UN65KS8000 has a WiFi connection, as do most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that have been around for a similar time to the UN65KS8000.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative TVs with a WiFi connection currently available including the UN65JS9500[pl_2756557_price], or the UE49KS9000[pl_3387559_price] both from Samsung or the Philips 43PUS6101[plb_3409438_price] which has better reviews.
Three USB 2.0 Ports
The Samsung UN65KS8000 is a three USB 2.0 port television. Most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that have been around for a comparable time to the UN65KS8000 only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports.
Four HDMI Ports
The UN65KS8000 is a four HDMI port television. Most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that have been on the market for the last year have between one and four HDMI ports.
+3 More reasons for
Two RF Ports
Most televisions that were launched in the last 12 months have between one and two RF ports, including the UN65KS8000 which has two RF ports.
The thicknesses of 4K and 8K TVs that have been available for around the same time as the UN65KS8000 range from 30mm to 99mm. The UN65KS8000 has one of the thinner thicknesses (only 45.72 millimeters) amongst comparable spec TVs of this age.
4 Reasons Against
Not 3D Compatible
The UN65KS8000 is not 3D compatible, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that are a similar age to the UN65KS8000 are also not 3D compatible.
Televisions which are 3D compatible that might also be worth considering include the Samsung UN65JS9500[plb_2756557_price], or the Panasonic TX-65DX780[plb_3332785_price] which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Most latest 4K and 8K TVs do not have a built-in camera. The UN65KS8000 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.
Other televisions which also have a built-in camera that you might also want to consider include 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.
Does Not Feature OLED Technology
Like most of the other new 4K and 8K TVs, the UN65KS8000 does not feature OLED technology.
We compared this TV to all the other TVs with an OLED technology and we think the U65S8806[pl_3212361_price], or the U55S8806[pl_3213698_price] both from TCL-Digital or the LG 55EF9509[plb_3155972_price] is also worth considering.
Quite Low RMS Rated Power
4K and 8K TVs that have been around for the last year have RMS rated power of between 10W and 120W. The UN65KS8000 has a quite low RMS rated power (only 20 Watts) compared to most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that have been on the market for around the same time as the UN65KS8000.
