4 Reasons For
Samsung has good average ratings for its 4K and 8K TVs as well as across its entire TV range.
Supports Smart TV Features
Like most of the other comparable spec TVs that have been available for the last year, the UN65KS8500 supports smart TV features.
We compared all the other televisions which support smart TV features to this TV and we think the Samsung UN65JS9500[plb_2756557_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
Has a WiFi Connection
The Samsung UN65KS8500 has a WiFi connection, as do most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that were released in the last year.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative televisions with a WiFi connection currently available including because of it's better review score, the Samsung UN65JS9500[plb_2756557_price].
Three USB 2.0 Ports
The UN65KS8500 has more USB 2.0 ports than most of the 4K and 8K TVs that were launched around the same time as the UN65KS8500. This television is a three USB 2.0 port TV compared to most of the latest 4K and 8K TVs which only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports.
5 Reasons Against
Not 3D Compatible
Most 4K and 8K TVs that have been available for around the same time as the UN65KS8500 are not 3D compatible. The UN65KS8500 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
Televisions which are 3D compatible that might also be worth looking at include the Samsung UN65JS9500[plb_2756557_price] which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that have been available for around the same time as the UN65KS8500, the Samsung UN65KS8500 does not have a built-in camera.
We think you might also be interested in other TVs which also have a built-in camera including the Samsung UN65JS9500[plb_2756557_price].
Only IEEE 802.11a WiFi Standard
This television supports an IEEE 802.11ac WiFi standard, which is typical of many latest televisions.
Does Not Feature OLED Technology
The UN65KS8500 does not feature OLED technology, although it is worth noting that most of the other TVs that were launched in the last 12 months also do not feature OLED technology.
It is worth also looking at alternative TVs which also feature OLED technology including the LG 55EF9509[plb_3155972_price] which also has a higher rating.
+2 More reasons against
Quite Low RMS Rated Power
At only 20 Watts, the UN65KS8500 has a quite low RMS rated power compared to most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that came out around the same time as the UN65KS8500. New TVs have RMS rated power of between 10W and 120W, and the average RMS rated power is 27W.
