7 Reasons Against

Pricey

We think this TV looks expensive compared to other comparable spec televisions that have been available for the last year. The cheapeast comparable spec TV that was launched in the last year that we found costs £175 and the most expensive costs £19,999.

Not 3D

Like most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that have been on the market for around the same time as the UE78KU6500, the Samsung UE78KU6500 is not 3D.

It is worth also looking at other televisions which also have a built-in camera including the LG 75UH855[plb_3350140_price] which is also cheaper.

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

We compared this TV to all the other televisions with an OLED technology and we think the OLED65E6[pl_3372690_price], or the OLED65G6[pl_3372691_price] both from LG which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
