Bought instead of a smart TV
on 25 May 2014
I had been looking for an update for our TV, but was loathe to spend hundreds of quid on a new one when the old one is working fine. Then I spotted this, its great but not quite as great as Amazon and Samsung would have you believe.
First off its small, looks good among all the stuff under the TV and has a decent remote. Set up was a doddle, Network cable in the back and in a few minutes we were connected up, updates had been checked for and all working. Put in Netflix details and everything worked like a charm.
Streaming is fast with no lag, all works great, then we discovered that there is a USB port on the front and it looks like it will play almost anything from a memory stick, photos, MP3's DivX and Xvid all seems to be very good.
It looses a star as it claims on the Samsung webpage that it also streamed lovefilm (now Prime video) and it did for a while one here, it doesn't and it doesn't look like there will be an update for it either. It looks like Amazon have changed their details on the device but be warned about Lovefilm.
There is a review somewhere on here complaining about no wi-fi sorry but it clearly says no wi-fi but on the whole a really good little device that I haven't any complaints about, no high pitched whine from ours.
Excellent alternative to shelling out for a smart TV.
