Reasons For

10 Reasons For
Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UE55KS7500 is a 40W RMS rated power TV. That's 20W higher than the Samsung UE65HU7200, the Samsung UE65JU7000 and the Sony KD-65S8005 (20W). Read more

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.

Zero point one more loudspeakers Edit
The Samsung UE55KS7500 has two point one loudspeakers, however the Sony KD-65S8005 only has two loudspeakers. Read more

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.

Common interface connection Edit
The Samsung UE55KS7500 has a common interface connection, however the Samsung UE65JU7000 does not have a common interface connection. Read more

A common interface slot provides compatibility with pay-per-view cards.

A common interface slot allows you to install pay per view cards. For example Sky TV sell pay per cards for watching football and boxing and WWE Network sell cards for watching wrestling.

Two RF ports Edit
The number of RF ports on the Samsung UE55KS7500 is two, and so does the Samsung UE65JU7000, but the Sony KD-65S8005 only has one RF port. Read more

We do not know the number of RF ports on the Samsung UE65HU7200. It is possible that it does not have any RF ports.

RF stands for Radio Frequency and an RF port is an older type of input connector for TVs which is most commonly use for connecting cable TV and satellite TV feeds directly to the TV.

Multiple RF ports will allow you to connect multiple RF feeds to the TV at the same time. For example, if the TV has a built in satellite TV decoder then you could connect 2 different satellite dishes to the TV.

DVI port Edit
The Samsung UE55KS7500 has a DVI port, however the Samsung UE65HU7200, the Samsung UE65JU7000 and the Sony KD-65S8005 do not have a DVI port.
85kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE55KS7500 has an annual energy consumption of 118kWh, however the Samsung UE65HU7200 is a 187kWh annual energy consumption TV (69kWh higher), the Samsung UE65JU7000 is a 160kWh annual energy consumption TV (42kWh higher) and the Sony KD-65S8005 is a 203kWh annual energy consumption TV (85kWh higher). Read more

The annual energy consumption is the total amount of energy that the TV will use over the course of a whole year, given typical usage levels.

A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.

12.9kg lighter Edit
The Samsung UE55KS7500 is a 17.2kg heavy TV, whereas the Samsung UE65HU7200 is a 28kg heavy TV (10.8kg heavier), the Samsung UE65JU7000 is a 23.9kg heavy TV (6.7kg heavier) and the Sony KD-65S8005 is a 30.1kg heavy TV (12.9kg heavier). Read more

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.

A lighter weight TV will be easier to move around and to mount on a wall. Some of the larger, very heavy TVs may require lightweight partition walls to be reinforced before the TV could be mounted.

39 shops are selling it
A greater number of shops increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV.
43% cheaper to run
Over five years the Samsung UE55KS7500 is £81.95 cheaper to run than the Samsung UE65HU7200, £49.90 cheaper to run than the Samsung UE65JU7000 and £100.79 cheaper to run than the Sony KD-65S8005. Read more
Energy efficiency rating is better
The Samsung UE55KS7500 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", however the Samsung UE65HU7200 has a rating of "A" and the Samsung UE65JU7000 has a rating of "A+".
3 Reasons For
10" larger screen size Edit
The Samsung UE65HU7200 has a screen size of 65" (as do the Samsung UE65JU7000 and the Sony KD-65S8005), whereas the Samsung UE55KS7500 is only a 55" TV (10" smaller). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen 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. 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.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

600Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UE65HU7200 has a motion interpolation frequency of 800Hz, but the Samsung UE55KS7500 is only a 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (600Hz slower). Read more

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. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

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

Moderately better user reviews
Based on 12 user reviews, the average review score of the Samsung UE65HU7200 is 92%, however the average rating of the Samsung UE55KS7500 is 91% (based on 21 reviews) and the average rating of the Sony KD-65S8005 is 87% (based on 50 reviews).

3D compatible Edit
The Samsung UE65JU7000 is a 3D compatible TV (as is the Sony KD-65S8005), whereas the Samsung UE65HU7200 is not 3D compatible. Read more

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. Most 3D TVs require you to wear special 3D glasses in order to view the content in 3D, however some of the newer 3D TVs require no 3D glasses at all. Of those TVs that do require glasses, there are two main types of 3D technology: passive and active. Passive 3D uses glasses similar to those that you wear in the cinema. The glasses have polarised lenses which ensure that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of passive 3D is that the glasses are very light and comfortable to wear, but it can result in a less bright image. Active 3D uses battery powered glasses which control active shutters in each lens. These shutters constantly open and close very quickly in sync with two different images that are being displayed by the TV. This ensures that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of active 3D is that the image is brighter, however the glasses are heavier and more expensive.

3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

A lot thinner Edit
Samsung UE65JU7000 is 68.8mm thick, but the Samsung UE55KS7500 is an 88.4mm thick TV (19.6mm thicker). Read more

The depth of the TV is the thickness of the TV measured from the back of the TV to the front of the TV. Curved TVs will have quite a big depth as this dimension is measured from the back of the centre of the screen to the front of the edges of the screen.

A thinner TV has the advantage of appearing more elegant and will also mean that the TV will not stick out as much when mounted on a wall.

Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Samsung UE65JU7000 is "A+", however the rating of the Samsung UE55KS7500 is "A+" and the rating of the Samsung UE65HU7200 is "A".

Zero point one less loudspeakers Edit
The number of loudspeakers on the Sony KD-65S8005 is two (as do the Samsung UE65HU7200 and the Samsung UE65JU7000), but the Samsung UE55KS7500 only has two point one loudspeakers. Read more

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.

Only one RF port Edit
The Sony KD-65S8005 is a one RF port TV, whereas the Samsung UE65JU7000 only has two RF ports. Read more

We do not know the number of RF ports on the Samsung UE65HU7200. It is possible that it does not have any RF ports.

RF stands for Radio Frequency and an RF port is an older type of input connector for TVs which is most commonly use for connecting cable TV and satellite TV feeds directly to the TV.

Multiple RF ports will allow you to connect multiple RF feeds to the TV at the same time. For example, if the TV has a built in satellite TV decoder then you could connect 2 different satellite dishes to the TV.

Does not have a DVI port Edit
The Sony KD-65S8005 does not have a DVI port (As do the the Samsung UE65HU7200 and the Samsung UE65JU7000), whereas the Samsung UE55KS7500 has a DVI port.
A lot higher annual energy consumption Edit
The Sony KD-65S8005 has an annual energy consumption of 203kWh, but the Samsung UE55KS7500 is a 118kWh annual energy consumption TV (85kWh lower), the Samsung UE65HU7200 is a 187kWh annual energy consumption TV (16kWh lower) and the Samsung UE65JU7000 is a 160kWh annual energy consumption TV (43kWh lower). Read more

The annual energy consumption is the total amount of energy that the TV will use over the course of a whole year, given typical usage levels.

A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.

A lot heavier Edit
The Sony KD-65S8005 has a weight of 30.1kg, however the Samsung UE55KS7500 is a 17.2kg heavy TV (12.9kg lighter), the Samsung UE65HU7200 is a 28kg heavy TV (2.1kg lighter) and the Samsung UE65JU7000 is a 23.9kg heavy TV (6.2kg lighter). Read more

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.

A lighter weight TV will be easier to move around and to mount on a wall. Some of the larger, very heavy TVs may require lightweight partition walls to be reinforced before the TV could be mounted.

Not as many stockists
The Sony KD-65S8005 is only stocked by 6 retailers, however the Samsung UE55KS7500 is stocked by 41 stores and the Samsung UE65JU7000 is stocked by 9 shops. Read more
Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this TV.
Older by nine months
The Sony KD-65S8005 is nine months older than the Samsung UE55KS7500.
£100.79 more expensive to run over five years
Over five years the Sony KD-65S8005 costs £236.99 to run which is £100.79 more to run than the Samsung UE55KS7500, £18.84 more to run than the Samsung UE65HU7200 and £50.89 more to run than the Samsung UE65JU7000. Show assumptions.
