The UE60KU6000 has a WiFi connection, as do most of the other large TVs that are a similar age to the UE60KU6000.
We compared this television to all the other TVs with a WiFi connection and we think the Sony KD-55XD7005 (£749.00), the Samsung UE55KU6670 (£895.00), and the LG 55UH650 (£879.00) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
8 Reasons Against
Not 3D Compatible
Like most of the other large TVs that are a comparable age to the UE60KU6000, the UE60KU6000 is not 3D compatible.
If you want a TV that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the 55EG910 (£1,149.00), or the 55UF8509 both from LG which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The UE60KU6000 does not have a built-in camera, although keep in mind that most of the other large TVs that have been available for a similar time to the UE60KU6000 also do not have a built-in camera.
Does Not Feature OLED Technology
The UE60KU6000 does not feature OLED technology, although it is worth noting that most of the other large TVs that were released in the last year also do not feature OLED technology.
We compared all the other TVs which also feature OLED technology to this TV and we think the 55EG910 (£1,149.00), or the 55UF8509 both from LG which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
Only Three HDMI Ports
The Samsung UE60KU6000 is a three HDMI port TV.
+5 More reasons against
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
The Samsung UE60KU6000 is a two USB 2.0 port television. Most of the other new comparable spec televisions have between one and three USB 2.0 ports.
Quite Low RMS Rated Power
The Samsung UE60KU6000 has one of the lower RMS rated power (only 20 Watts) amongst comparable spec TVs of this age. The average RMS rated power of new large TVs is 27W.
Quite High Annual Energy Consumption
At 184 kilowatt hours, the UE60KU6000 has a fairly high annual energy consumption compared to most of the other large TVs that came out around the same time as the UE60KU6000. Large TVs that came out around the same time as the UE60KU6000 have annual energy consumptions of between 59kWh and 320kWh.
Quite High Average Power Consumption
The average power consumption of similar spec TVs that were released in the last 12 months range from 42W to 220W, and the average average power consumption is 110W. At 133 Watts, the UE60KU6000 has a quite high average power consumption compared to most of the other newly released comparable spec TVs.
1 Other reason to consider the Samsung UE60KU6000
At 64 millimeters, the UE60KU6000 has a relatively typical thickness compared to most of the other new large TVs.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 64mm thick televisions currently available including a cheaper TV such as the UE55J6150 (£824.82), or the UE55J6272 (£869.00) both from Samsung or you might consider a higher rated TV such as the Samsung UE60JU6800 (£849.00).
