5 Reasons For

Samsung Has Good TV Reviews

4K and 8K TVs built by Samsung have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all TVs (not just 4K and 8K TVs) and found that Samsung also has good reviews across its entire range.

Just Released Eight Months Ago

This TV was released just eight months ago.

Supports Smart TV Features

Like most of the other latest comparable spec TVs, the UE60KU6079 supports smart TV features.

We compared all the other TVs which support smart TV features to this television and we think the Samsung UN65JS9500 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

8 Reasons Against

Running Costs Are Very High

Whilst this 4K and 8K TV has an energy efficiency rating of A, the UE60KU6079 has an average 5 year running cost of £215 based on average usage levels and energy prices, which is in the most expensive 20% of all 388 TVs that were launched in the last year.

Not 3D Compatible

Most TVs that were released around the same time as the UE60KU6079 are not 3D compatible. The UE60KU6079 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer a TV that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the Samsung UN65JS9500.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The UE60KU6079 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other recently released TVs also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other televisions which also have a built-in camera to this TV and we think the Samsung UN65JS9500 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
