65 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 65 inches television.

We compared all the other 65" televisions to this TV and we think the UE65KS7500 (£1,049.99), and the UE65KS9000 (£640) both from Samsung and both of which have better reviews; or the Samsung UE65JU6400 (£1,175) which is cheaper are also worth considering.

If this Samsung TV display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to look at the Samsung UE70KU6000 (£999.99) (70").
