The UE55KU6509 has a WiFi connection. Most of the other recently released large TVs also have a WiFi connection.

4 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

Most similar spec TVs that were released around the same time as the UE55KU6509 are not 3D compatible. The Samsung UE55KU6509 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

TVs which are 3D compatible that might be worth looking at include the LOEWE 54433U40 (£4,760.94), the Samsung UE65JS8502, or the Panasonic TX-50CXM710 (£962.50).

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The Samsung UE55KU6509 does not feature OLED technology. Most of the other large TVs that have been on the market for the last year also do not feature OLED technology.

We think you might also be interested in alternative televisions which also feature OLED technology including the TCL-Digital U58S7806 (£894.77).

Very Thick

If you would consider a TV with a thicker thickness then you might want to look at the Changhong LED55D3000 (£544.82) (90mm and cheaper); or the Samsung UE55JS8000 (£1,099.00) (91.5mm and higher rated).
