7 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average Samsung 4K and 8K TVs have good ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all TVs produced by Samsung.

Supports Smart TV

Like most of the other latest 4K and 8K TVs, the Samsung UN65KS8000 supports smart TV.

There are a number of alternative TVs which support smart TV currently available that you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the LG 55UH6507[plb_3413191_price], the Samsung UE43KU6509[plb_3428719_price], or the Sony KD-43XD8005[plb_3758729_price].

Has a Wi-Fi

has a wi-Fi

The UN65KS8000 has a wi-Fi, as do most of the other TVs that were released in the last year.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative TVs with a wi-Fi currently available including the Panasonic TX-49DXW654[plb_3348123_price], or the Samsung UE60KU6079[plb_3425932_price] which has better reviews.

Very Thin

At only 45.72 millimeters, the Samsung UN65KS8000 has a quite thin depth compared to most of the other similar spec TVs that have been on the market for the last year. The thinnest depth of newly released 4K and 8K TVs is 35mm, the thickest is 99mm, and the average depth is 63mm.

4 Reasons Against

Not 3D

The UN65KS8000 is not 3D, although this is within the context that most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that have been available for around the same time as the UN65KS8000 are also not 3D.

If you want a TV that is 3D then you might want to consider the 55UF8509[pl_3537337_price], or the 60UH7709[pl_3537353_price] both from LG or the TCL-Digital U65S8806[plb_3212361_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most similar spec televisions that came out in the last year do not have a built-in camera. The UN65KS8000 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other televisions which also have a built-in camera to this TV and we think the LG 75UH855[plb_3350140_price], or the Samsung UE78HU8500[plb_3973673_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

Like most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that have been available for the last year, the Samsung UN65KS8000 does not feature OLED technology.

It is worth also looking at alternative televisions which also feature OLED technology including the U65S8806[pl_3212361_price], the U55S8806[pl_3213698_price], or the U58S7806[pl_3213716_price] all from TCL-Digital which is also higher rated.
