“What is a Smart TV” [Infographic]

I like the idea of Smart TVs, but I won’t lie to you, they are quite shitty in current form. Until Smart TVs actually become “smart” then I will never see the appeal. Is this me being bitter because I can’t afford one? Probably!

    Prices are a little out of date (well, except for the Sony, probably). We bought a 42 inch Philips last year for $220. Watched one movie on it so far, and 2 hours of OTA television a week. Smart? Well, we had to get rid of our CRT boob tube. But it’s no replacement for a real computer.

    I have a 55inch LG Smart TV i bought in 2013 although i don’t use all the functions i have found it useful for web browsing and playing movies via USB but it;s fair to say a lot of the functions of a smart TV can be replicated by purchasing a smart box media player like Roko or ASUS O! Play at much lower cost and indeed some budget DVD players also have these functions, but I will advise do your homework first to make sure it does everything you want.

    I have never before seen crude language like “shitty” on this site. I hope that just slipped by your moderators. I hope this gets fixed soon.
