SAMSUNG UN65KS8500 curved 4k SUHD with HDR & Quantum DOT panel LED TV review

4 Reasons For

Good Brand

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

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

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.

Chart Edit

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].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only IEEE 802.11a WiFi Standard

This television supports an IEEE 802.11ac WiFi standard, which is typical of many latest televisions.

Chart Edit

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.
