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.
Like most of the other recently released TVs, the Samsung UE55KU6509 does not have a built-in camera.
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).
At 97.2 millimeters, the Samsung UE55KU6509 has a very thick thickness compared to most of the other similar spec TVs that were released in the last year. The thicknesses of recently released similar spec TVs range from 17mm to 100mm, and the average thickness is 62mm.
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).
