Design

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The KD-65S8505 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other TVs of a similar spec and age to this TV also do not have a built-in camera.

We think you might also be interested in other TVs which also have a built-in camera including the Samsung UE55JU6510 (£899) or the Sony KD-65X9005 (£849.99).

Average High Frequency Rate

With a high frequency rate of 800 hertz, the KD-65S8505 has a relatively typical high frequency rate compared to most of the other televisions of a similar type and age to this TV.

We compared this TV to all the other 800Hz refresh rate televisions and we think the Sony KD-65X9005 (£849.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you want a faster high frequency rate then you might want to look at the Sony KD-65XD9305 (£1,199.99) (1,000Hz) which is also higher rated.
