LG SM8600 vs Samsung RU8000
The reviewers at Rtings have featured the LG SM8600 65" in their LG SM8600 TV Review roundup. However, it fell short of making it to the top of their list.
Moving on to the Samsung RU8000 55": it was unable to reach the very top of any roundups from sources that conduct reliable and unbiased testing. Nonetheless, it still managed to impress reviewers from a number of such sites, like What Hi-Fi?, Techradar, TrustedReviews, Rtings, and PCmag, enough for them to include them on those lists.
We conducted an analysis of all of the review data that we could find on these two products. First, we focused on sources that tested and rated both of them, like Rtings, and learned that they all showed a preference for the Samsung RU8000 55".
Then we took a look at the highest review scores that these two TVs received. We found that the LG SM8600 65" managed to earn a rating of 7 from Rtings, whereas the Samsung RU8000 55" got its highest, 10, score from reviewers at What Hi-Fi?.
Finally, we compared them to other TVs on the market and found that the two of them got reviewed similarly to the majority of their competitors. The overall average review score for TVs in general is 7.7 out of 10, whereas the LG SM8600 65" and Samsung RU8000 55" managed averages of 7.0 and 7.6 points, respectively.
It should be noted that it might not be entirely fair to do a direct LG SM8600 65" vs. Samsung RU8000 55" comparison due to the difference in their pricing; some sources have a tendency to review more premium products better than more affordable ones.
