We compared this TV to all the other 64.5" TVs and we think the UN65JS9500, the UN65JS9000, and the UN65JU7500 all from Samsung which all of have better reviews are also worth considering.

If this TV display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to look at the Philips 65PUK7120 (65" and higher rated), or the LG 65UH668 (65" and higher rated).
