The Sony KD-65SD8505 has a WiFi connection. Most of the other televisions that have been around for a comparable time to the KD-65SD8505 also have a WiFi connection.
It may also be worth considering one of the other televisions with a WiFi connection currently available including the Panasonic TX-58DX780[plb_3332682_price], or the LG 60UH850[plb_3385401_price] which is cheaper.

+3 More reasons for
Three USB 2.0 Ports
Most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that are a similar age to the KD-65SD8505 only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, however the KD-65SD8505 has three USB 2.0 ports.
Fairly Fast Motion Interpolation Frequency
The slowest motion interpolation frequency of 4K and 8K TVs that have been around for a similar time to the KD-65SD8505 is 60Hz and the fastest is 3,000Hz. With a motion interpolation frequency of 1,000 hertz, the KD-65SD8505 has a fairly fast motion interpolation frequency compared to most of the other TVs that were released around the same time as the KD-65SD8505.
8 Reasons Against
Not 3D Compatible
Most 4K and 8K TVs that have been around for a comparable time to the KD-65SD8505 are not 3D compatible. The KD-65SD8505 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
The KD-65SD8505 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other new 4K and 8K TVs also do not have a built-in camera.
We compared this television to all the other televisions with a built-in camera and we think the Samsung UE60JU6400[plb_2894934_price] is also worth considering.
Only One RF Input
Most TVs that were launched in the last 12 months have between one and two RF inputs, including the Sony KD-65SD8505 which has one RF input.
Does Not Feature OLED Technology
The KD-65SD8505 does not feature OLED technology, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that have been around for a comparable time to the KD-65SD8505 also do not feature OLED technology.
We compared all the other TVs which also feature OLED technology to this television and we think the LG OLED55B6[plb_3349267_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
+5 More reasons against
The cheapeast recently released similar spec televisions that we found costs £175 and the most expensive costs £19,999. We think that this Sony television looks expensive for a similar spec TV that came out in the last 12 months.
Quite High Annual Energy Consumption
Across all the new comparable spec TVs the annual energy consumptions range from 59kWh to 420kWh. With an annual energy consumption of 171 kilowatt hours, the KD-65SD8505 has one of the higher annual energy consumptions amongst TVs of this age.
The average weight of latest comparable spec TVs is 20kg, and the weights range from 7.5kg to 59kg. With a weight of 29.4 kilograms, the Sony KD-65SD8505 is one of the heavier TVs that were released around the same time as the KD-65SD8505 amongst TVs of this age.

TVs with a thicker thickness that might also be worth looking at include the Sony KD-55XD9305[plb_3300258_price] (36mm) which is also cheaper.
