2.0 out of 5 stars product description not clear enough - it's just a wifi dongle, 16 Jan 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung WIS12ABGN/XEC Allshare (DLNA) Smart TV Wireless Dongle (Personal Computers)
This dongle does nothing more and nothing less than provide wireless internet.

It doesn't make your existing TV any "SMART"er than it already is, which in my case was not at all.

I was after a dongle that gave me Netflix (etc) and this one popped up - based on others' comments it appeared to do the job. I was wrong.

It's easy to set up and get internet access. I was struggling with "what next" and after several carefully crafted mails to Samsung support (because, e.g., one comment here mentioned Samsung providing better software) I was advised that for non-SMART TVs it just enables wireless updating of existing firmware rather than improved functionality, aka, "so what?"

A clearer product description would have saved me a lot of time and effort.
