8 Reasons For

Samsung Has Good Reviews for Its TVs

4K and 8K TVs produced by Samsung have good reviews on average. 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.

Low Running Costs

The UN48JS8500 has an average 5 year running cost of £105 based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which makes it one of the more economic to run new 4K and 8K TVs.

3D Compatible

The Samsung UN48JS8500 is 3D compatible, which is unusual. Most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that came out in the last 12 months are not 3D compatible.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 3D compatible TVs currently available including the Samsung UN65JS9500[plb_2756557_price] which has better reviews.

We compared all the other TVs with a WiFi connection to this TV and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung UN65JS9500[plb_2756557_price] is also worth considering.

Three USB 2.0 Ports

The UN48JS8500 has more USB 2.0 ports than most of the 4K and 8K TVs that have been available for around the same time as the UN48JS8500. Most of the 4K and 8K TVs that were launched around the same time as the UN48JS8500 only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, however this TV has three USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Four HDMI Ports

The Samsung UN48JS8500 is a four HDMI port television. Most of the other recently released comparable spec TVs have between one and four HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Thin

4K and 8K TVs that came out in the last year have thicknesses of between 30mm and 99mm, and the average thickness is 62mm. When compared to other new comparable spec televisions, the UN48JS8500's thickness of only 30.48 millimeters is one of the thinnest.

If you don't mind having a thicker thickness then you might want to look at the Samsung UE60JU6400[plb_2894934_price] (64mm), or the LOEWE Art 55[plb_2860583_price] (55.5mm).

2 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Samsung UN48JS8500 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other televisions that have been around for a comparable time to the UN48JS8500 also do not have a built-in camera.

Other TVs which also have a built-in camera that you might want to look at include the Samsung UN65JS9500[plb_2756557_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The UN48JS8500 does not feature OLED technology, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other similar spec TVs that are a comparable age to the UN48JS8500 also do not feature OLED technology.

We compared this TV to all the other televisions with an OLED technology and we think the LG 55EF9509[plb_3155972_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
