Advantages: Looks smart and you can brag to your friends about having a 'Smart TV'
Disadvantages: The Smart t.v is a waste of time
We bought this t.v as a t.v for our family room. My partner chose this one specifically because it was a reasonable price with all of the latest smart t.v technology but not ridiculously oversized as most t.vs seem to be now! We use the t.v for general day to day watching as we have a bigger one for watching movies in the living room.
We have attached the TV to the wall as its light enough to do so and it keeps it out of the way of grubby little hands! We don't have it hooked up to a surround sound system etc but the sound from the t.v is easily good enough to watch films from if you wanted too. Its very clear and I often have the music channels blasting whilst i'm cleaning with no crackles or fuzziness like I used to get when I turned my old t.v up to loud. The picture quality is very good especially on the HD channels. We have also found that when we look at photos we have taken on our camera on the t.v they look very crisp and the colours are a lot brighter.
The look of the TV is very sleek and modern. I particularly like the fact that the rim is practically non-existent. We bought the t.v for the smart capability however we briefly used it on the first day and we haven't touched that feature again since! Its very slow there's a very limited amount of apps and the ones that are available seem to be pointless. Its a pain to type anything when your searching as your using the remote control. You can buy a keyboard to make this easier however the t.v itself would still load the pages slowly. Its much quicker and easier to use your mobile device or computer. The apps are minimal and to be honest I think a lot more work needs to be done on the Smart Tv aspect before company's use it to sell their products. Its shockingly slow.
The 3D capabilities are good and my girls enjoy watching there 3d disney films on it but really its little more than a gimmick and i'm personally not interested in it especially with the extra cost of the 3D DVDs. We have also found that there are a limited amount of 3D films available however after speaking to several members of staff in various shops this is hopefully meant to be changing and there should be more being made over the next few years.
The t.v is reasonably priced especially if you get it with a discount code like we did however I do feel that a normal tv would have been just as good without all of the silly gimmicks. We also had four pairs of 3d glasses included for free as we haggled a bit and some free dvds.
All the silly extras were a waste of money and I wouldn't buy a smart tv just for the smart aspect of it.
Summary: But for the t.v not for the gimmicks
