Samsung LED HD 40" TV
5 Star Review   By ILR3A on John Lewis - Apr 16, 2012   

I saw a consumer report which spoke well of Samsung TVs. The size was right for the space in our lounge and it did not need a separate set top box. I have not yet tried all the available facilities in the set but, as a TV, it seems to be very good.

A stylish, easy to use television
5 Star Review   By Marg9 on John Lewis - Apr 16, 2012   

I am delighted with this television. The narrow surround to the screen makes this stylish, 40 inch TV unobtrusive. The silver coloured stand is a welcome change from those high gloss, black, plastic looking stands which show every speck of dust. The buttons on the handset are a good size and the markings on them are clear making it easy to use. The only downside to using all the facilities available through the internet connection is the speed of our broadband, although this is certainly not a reflection on the TV. I am ususally looking for something that has never been made but on this occasion I am delighted that Samsung have produced exactly what I was looking for. An excellent product.

5 Star Review   By AndrewG on John Lewis - Apr 14, 2012   

Great TV. Fantastic picture. I have never had a home cinema system or surround sound speakers, so I haven't noticed the sound quality issues mentioned in many reviews. The supply and delivery from John Lewis went perfectly. All this and a 5 year guarantee too.

Sensational picture
5 Star Review   By Stanley63 on John Lewis - Apr 11, 2012   

Bought the 32" version for the kitchen wall, the picture is so much better than my 5 year old Panasonic Viera that I just had to get the 40" version for the lounge. Absolutely delighted with the sensational picture, particularly the HD broadcasts. We have a Blue Ray player and a PS3 hooked up and both are amazing. Well worth every penny.

Excellent
5 Star Review   By Robm1980 on John Lewis - Apr 11, 2012   

TV was extremely easy to setup, including the Wi-Fi, blue ray player, Xbox 360, Freeview HD and connecting to my PC to stream music / video's. Picture quality is fantastic without any tinkering of the settings, however there was a little blurring on small, fast moving objects on some DVD’s. Top Gun DVD was pretty poor for this, yet something with much more detail like Avatar was fine, so can't say whether this is an issue with the DVDs, Blue Ray player or TV itself. However I think I’ve solved this now with the clear motion picture TV setting :) I’ve watched a number of films since changing this setting and not had any issues. Haven’t really tried the 3D so can’t comment on this. The smart TV features seems pretty useful though I’ve only really used YouTube much so far. I've had the TV for around a month now and have no regrets about buying it and would definitely recommend it.

Perfect Product
5 Star Review   By jonnygoz on John Lewis - Apr 11, 2012   

Performs exactly as the John Lewis (Samsung) demonstrator said it would. Even easy to set up for a pensioner. Only drawback is the internet delay due to our slow speed.

First class TV with great picture quality and 3D-as far as smart side could be improved by ability to connect to keyboard for internet browsing rather than laborious use of remote keys.

5 Star Review   By Phlebas on John Lewis - Apr 4, 2012

Fantasitic TV both on style and functionality!
5 Star Review   By Charbe on John Lewis - Mar 28, 2012   

Have deliberated over changing TV for over a year and very glad that I held off waiting for this... Looks fantastic, wall mounted with Samsung HD450 soundbar underneath. Teamed with Samsung bluray player and Humax PVR (I don't consider the inbuilt PVR functionality feature rich enough for my requirements, but good for 1 off records or timeshifting). iPlayer works a treat on a basic 7MB broadband wireless connection. I did not buy it for 3D functionality and have still not even tried that! but 2D is fantastic from all viewing angles. Impressed that 2 pairs of 3D glasses came free in the box. Recommend this TV 100%.

Stunning
4 Star Review   By baguaboy on John Lewis - Mar 21, 2012   

Top quality screen that still has me marveling months later. Watching hi def nature programs via the bbc app has been great with my son. I've hung this flush on the wall and hidden the wires inside a wall cavity with trunking. The screen is so thin it hangs like a painting. I'm tempted to put a frame around it! Hooked this baby up to the PS3 and i am now tech mac daddy!

Samsung UE40D6530 LED HD TV
5 Star Review   By BeeTee39 on John Lewis - Mar 21, 2012   

The picture quality is superb - the only criticism I would make is the poor network interface, i.e. There is only a primitive method to enter text to search the internet for content. If there was a bluetooth keyboard offered as an accessory, I would buy it. I consider 3D to be a gimmick.

Nice telly
5 Star Review   By Bucksboy on John Lewis - Mar 10, 2012   

Decided to up-grade to this model from other Samsung that was out of stock glad we did. Quiet easy to set up but then fair bit of fiddling needed to get sound right. There are loads of picture settings to play with too. Only used the 3D on the function from the Samsung demo's. Some ok but not that impressed, perhaps will be better when with a blu-ray disk or 3D broadcast. Did not get for 3D anyway. HD pic is stunning. 'Country file' type programmes are wonderful on the 40'' screen. 'Someone' should warn people more, that trying to view HD/3D via the internet requires a fast Broadband connection! my 3.5 at best, struggles. One of the 3D glasses did not work But JL just got another off the self. Delivery chaps were nice and helpful and on time. Am looking forward to the Olympics on it.

Samsung Tv
5 Star Review   By JonathanP on John Lewis - Feb 29, 2012   

Following much research both on line and in the high street we decided on this product given the picture quality and 3d capability. Internet capability was a consideration but has been little used so far. John Lewis price matched a high street retailer and delivered promptly so a very positive buying experience. Having managed to connect up the set to other components we subsequently had the set wall mounted and are delighted with the results. Great features but most importantly a great picture at a sensible price.

Excellent TV
5 Star Review   By Ron555 on John Lewis - Feb 25, 2012   

This really is an excellent TV, Picture wise there is nothing i can find fault with 2D picture in SD is very good. HD really is crisp and clear. 3D i can't really comment on as i have not used it much yet. There is 2 pair of glasses included in the box. Sound i would say is ok for normal viewing but it really would benefit being connected to a set of external speakers if you listen to music and like better sound for films etc . The Smart TV is useful with some good features, the web browser is a bit clunky to navigate but can be handy for a quick browse. It's a classy looking TV as well with it's thin surround and silver stand.

You will not be disappointed !!
5 Star Review   By War01 on John Lewis - Feb 17, 2012   

After a lot of soul searching we agreed to update from our clunky but really good pictured Sony to a flat screen TV. The only problem was there is just too much choice and the technology seems to be moving forward at a rate of knots. My advice is to go and look at TV’s to compare picture and performance then choose the level of technology you need. If you make this choice you will just not be disappointed. Firstly the look is incredible. The surround is so thin that even this size of screen does not look overpowering in a moderate size room. It is no monster in the corner. The 3D effect, even from a 2D picture is impressive and the smart TV function allows easy access to BBC iPlayer which streams even on my slow internet connection. You cannot go wrong with this TV.

TOP QUALITY T.V.
5 Star Review   By sbsmith on John Lewis - Feb 16, 2012   

This is a very smart, minimalist looking television. It has a fantastic picture, the most clear and sharp picture I've ever seen. It was very easy and quick to set up, although we haven't set up I Player yet. Extremely satisfied and would highly recommend.

5 Star Review   By BobbyD12 on John Lewis - Feb 16, 2012   

I spent a lot of time researching this purchase and settled on this model for the quality of the 2D image, the built in Wi-Fi and Samsung's reputation for quality screens. Not disappointed - easy to use, fabulous image and the internet capability is superb. No complaints.

great value
5 Star Review   By Jules65 on John Lewis - Feb 16, 2012   

not being remotely techy I was very unsure about what TV to buy but the advice I recieved in John Lewis led me to purchase this TV and soundbar. The set up was very easy, even for me, navigation around the system was simple but most of all the picture and sound quality is excellent. Along with 2 pairs of 3D glasses this made it an even better buy. The contact on the delivery was top class with a call advising that they would be with me in 30minutes. All in all an enjoyable shopping experience for an excellent product

Fabulous so far :)
5 Star Review   By Norfolklass on John Lewis - Feb 15, 2012   

This TV is amazing for us as it replaces a smaller one over 20 years old. The picture is good, & makes watching dramas & DVDs (& football for my husband) a totally different - & better - experience. We have connected up our old hard drive recorder & separate DVD player, both of which worked plug & play. We haven't yet tried the Wi-Fi although we have bought the dongle, which is why I've said fabulous so far. It has taken courage to try each connection, & we're psyching ourselves up for this bit :) I'm really pleased we spent a lot of money & went for this TV.

nearly perfect!
4 Star Review   By theRoses on John Lewis - Feb 1, 2012   

We purchased this TV because we were seduced by the quality of the picture and the very slim frame. The TV is light, was easy to mount on its stand, but we feel it is a 2 people's job. The back panel is designed to make it easy to plug DVD player, set top box etc...in. It did not take long to set up and to tune it, even for me who is far from being techy.The quality of the picture is really good, the colours look natural and sometimes you have the feeling the film is happening in the room instead of on a screen. The only thing we were a bit disappointed about is the sound quality but we got that resolved by using our home cimema surround sound, also a Samsung with Anynet, meaning we can use one remote control for the TV and the home cinema system (but beware, all functions are not available - or we haven't found yet how to have them all available for the player and the TV on one single remote but it still makes life easier though). We were really disappointed about the internet application, not very friendly to use, as all you get to type text is a keypad looking like an old mobile phone - press 3 times on 1 to get "c" etc, making it pretty time consuming to get where you want and we found using the remote's menu buttons to move around the internet pages difficult. The TV is let down in that area, we feel. The best advise we could give is to test this functionality in the shop before you buy if this is an important one for you. The Samsung apps which you can download could help solve partially this issue if all you want to do with the internet WIFI connection is to watch TV programmes online. The app for BBC Iplayer for instance is easy to use (and for that one you get a better digital keyboard to use), shame that this sort of app is not available for the other TV channels as trying to find one programme from 4oD we wanted to watch took us forever.

The UE40D6530 LED HD 3D 40 Inch Freeview HD with Built-in Wi-Fi TV is amazing. Easy to set up and good connectivity. Off-air pictures from Freeview HD is great, same as from the TiVo Box. Excellent picture quality !!! it plays photos from USB memory stick too, as well as popular Web sites via WiFi Link. Easy to use controls, great and reliable picture quality, and the 3D is good as well. Overall, amazed at how good the picture is during the day or for night time viewing.

Samsung UE40D6530 LED 3D
5 Star Review   By Bronwyn76 on John Lewis - Jan 16, 2012   

Excellent all round TV which lives up to its spec. However the on line and TV manual could be a little confusing for the older generation but once you have managed that it is well worth the effort. Would recommend this product and with the customer service from samsung and John lewis one need not feel alone with there expert advice.

Very Impressed
5 Star Review   By Anfon on John Lewis - Jan 14, 2012   

Having just bought a 40” HD as replacement for the front room, we were not happy with the colour or sharpness of the picture as we had to keep altering the settings each time we turned the TV on. We took the TV back to John Lewis without any problems and started to look around at all the other makes on show and we kept on being drawn back to this TV. On taking the unit out of the box and setting it up, which was a lot easier than the other unit we returned I was sitting down watching programmes within 10 minutes. The quality of the picture is crystal clear, the sharpness and depth of the colour is superb and 3D is fantastic, but beware, when watching darts as you really feel that the darts are coming directly at you. I would certainly recommend this TV to anybody and JL matched the price as well. Well done JL.

Great TV but maybe some clouding
4 Star Review   By Forthay on John Lewis - Jan 12, 2012   

This is a lovely looking television and unbelievably thin. Setup, operating and menu navigation is a breeze. We've changed the settings but still appear to have some clouding in the middle of the screen but we'll wait and see if it effects normal viewing before making any decisions as it's wall mounted and I don't want to take it down. The 5 year JL warranty provides complete peace of mind anyway. No problems with lag playing any games either despite the reports on the internet. Very happy with the purchase which was price matched. There were also 2 pairs of 3D glasses unexpectedly included in the box.

Love It
5 Star Review   By ZedEd on John Lewis - Jan 8, 2012   

Wow what a great TV this is. Picture quality is fantastic. Other reviews have said the sound was not of the best but I have found it to be good. The TV was so easy to set up and connected to the internet was trouble free. This TV replaced an older Samsung which was trouble free so I only hope this continues. Can say this is a great buy and can recommend it.

Fantastic picture and great looking TV
4 Star Review   By Englishbloke on John Lewis - Jan 3, 2012   

SD picture is much better than on my previous Samsung LCD series 6 and probably means I could have gone for the 46" screen instead. HD picture is incredible. 3D is better than expected. Do have a an issue with the screen noticeably dimming on dark scenes (end credits or wide shots at concerts for example) but I am sure that can be fixed somewhere in the menus. Would be 5 stars if it wasn't for this issue. Wireless N (I think) means great streaming in iPlayer too. You can also control the TV with your iPhone which can be handy when online. Delivery from John Lewis was on time and with no problems. Price match took a long time to sort out though.

Amazing picture quality
5 Star Review   By Chopper48 on John Lewis - Jan 2, 2012   

Compared lots of LED TV's makes & sizes, & kept coming back to this for the quality of picture & functions. I think this LED TV is even better now that I have had time to view & play with it over the Xmas break. Only had limited use with the 3D so far, & am pleased with the results so far. Looking forward to Wimbledon being broadcast in 3D. Price has dropped since buying, which makes this an even better buy.

Happy
4 Star Review   By fitzmerc on John Lewis - Jan 1, 2012   

I cannot fault the speed and ease of ordering from John Lewis. I had found cheaper sites but in the end was converted to JL by its 5 year guarantee. The Samsung is a good quality TV and its internet limitations are well recorded elsewhere. You can get Iplayer but not ITV player. It is difficult to type in names etc as there is no easy keyboard. The picture quality is superb and some programmes seem slightly amateur as the quality is so realistic. The set looks great and is admired by visitors. The delivery was early in the morning which suited me as I did not have to take time off work.

Amazing!
5 Star Review   By tim1001 on John Lewis - Dec 29, 2011   

Simple to set up with a bonus of 2 pairs of 3D glasses included free in the box. The screen resolution, clarity and colour are outstanding. Friends and neighbours who also have 40" flat screens immediately complained their's were nowhere near as good! Coupling this with a BluRay player and surround sound system results in a truly awesome experience. The thin bezel is stunning and makes wider ones seem old fashioned, although I don't think the alternative one in white would look nearly as good. JL's 5 year guarantee clinched it!

Great TV!
4 Star Review   By MrandMrsD on John Lewis - Dec 29, 2011   

Easy to set up, easy to assemble. Good picture and stylish looking TV. Overall we are very pleased with our purchase. Our only problem is that we have not been able to watch ITV player via the Internet. Apart from this minor point, we would definitely recommend this television.

Absolutely Fantastic!
5 Star Review   By MD39 on John Lewis - Dec 28, 2011   

Had this television just over a week now and really really pleased with it. Picture is fantastic. Used the 3D on it and this is really good too.Used the record facility on it which is brilliant. Looks great with such a narrow frame to it. Smart piece of equipment. Would definitely recommend this TV. Price was great too considering JL price matched it for me. Customer Service from JL has been brilliant. Can't fault them at all.

Superb led tv
5 Star Review   By Andys0000001 on John Lewis - Dec 23, 2011   

Absolutely fantastic picture quality, especially on Freeview HD. Extremely compact for a 40" telly due to the fact that there is virtually no "frame" around the screen. Smart TV features add to the overall package and are really useful. The icing on the cake was the £95 price match refund from John Lewis and the £50 cashback from Samsung. I would strongly recommend that you have a look at one of these if you're considering a 40" tv

Brilliant picture
5 Star Review   By mbrodwell on John Lewis - Dec 14, 2011   

I purchased this set from JLP recently due to the very positive 2D reviews I had read. I wasn't disappointed, the picture is simply brilliant and high quality (HD) images appear almost '3D-like' in standard viewing. Also comes with two pairs of 3D glasses that I have used on occasion but to be honest, will probably stick to the brilliant 2D picture.

5 Star Review   By tuskat on John Lewis - Dec 11, 2011   

I couldn't be happier with this tv, set up super easy in minutes, no need for manual. The picture quality is truly excellect - watching Frozen Planet in HD on BBC iplayer wowed me. John Lewis matched the price to a deal that is better than any other on internet, customer service is the best you can get. Great tv for great price with 5 year guarantee. The tv is back in the box - my teenage daughter's x-mas surprise, cant' wait!

Superb Picture and Functions
5 Star Review   By RedKen on John Lewis - Nov 23, 2011   

Purchased after seeing it in store and was not disappointed, all the functions from picture quality, 3D, SMART etc all work beautifully. Cost at JL was very competitive and with 5yr guarantee and worth every penny so much so I know of at least three other people who have seen my TV who have bought the same model all be it in the larger size - show offs!

Elegant design but spoiled by immature technology
4 Star Review   By TimN on John Lewis - Nov 23, 2011   

This TV is a real mixed bag. It looks very attractive, as TV's go and really is very slim. The picture quality in HD and when viewing Blu-ray discs is absolutely superb, mostly. What really spoils it is that on some channels some of the time there is a really distracting picture judder . I've tried just about everything on the advanced picture settings but cannot eliminate it completely. For some reason, channels showing old black and white newsreel film such as "Yesterday" are the worst. The SmartTV Internet hub is also a mixed bag too. Despite trying everything #and reading various message boards, I'm not alone#, I could not get it to connect wirelessly and had to invest in a long lan cable. Once connected, BBCi Player plays with excellent picture quality, unlike the ITV Player which is poor by comparison. The Samsung "Apps" that can be downloaded would be fun for the kids but suspect that the novelty would soon wear off. Web browsing is also a mixed bag. Frustratingly, two of my most used websites that both require login, do not display properly rendering them almost unuseable. Entering text into the search bar, and general page navigation is frankly poor and so slow, even with my Samsung phone app that offers a wireless keyboard input. Finally the 3-D aspect. Comparing it to the Sony 3D TV I don't find the effect quite as good and need to sit quite near to the screen to get the best effect. Already the novelty has worn off and find I'm rarely using it. It may sound as if I don't like the TV but I do, a lot, bit it's frustratingly close to being excellent,but spoiled by lots of little niggles.

4 Star Review   By stevieb on John Lewis - Nov 23, 2011   

With it's slim frame, the set looks tremendous. Happy with picture quality, and smart features work well depending on the quality of wireless router etc. 3D is a great novelty but best for short periods only given the glasses etc. Overall, I'm delighted with this tv

Exactly what we were after
5 Star Review   By NaomiJ on John Lewis - Nov 23, 2011   

I can't rate this tv highly enough. I am not a technical buyer and just wanted something that gave us good picture, good sound, reliable internet access and was easy to use. I'm pleased to report that this is all that! The e-manual is very handy for set up issues and I have found the remote control quite intuitive (luckily). I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for style and quality but not at a top of the range price.

Great Picture and style
5 Star Review   By Jenny17 on John Lewis - Nov 9, 2011   

I could not believe how quick and easy this television was to assemble on the neat stand and to tune the channels. The Smart facility is really easy to use although it would have been useful to know that to use Skype you need a special attachment and a Samsung keyboard to use the web/email The colour, clarity and look of the TV is excellent and seems extremely good value for money. Made all the better by John Lewis yet again providing an outstanding delivery service

Super quality , Future proof
5 Star Review   By Andyc2 on John Lewis - Oct 21, 2011   

After reading many reviews I decided to buy this TV ,and was not disappointed. The picture is outstanding ,freeview HD is amazing ,3d on blu-ray DVD was good (THOR)but I am sure there are better made 3D dvds to come ,I was lucky egnough to get 2 pairs of glasses free in the box with mine. Not tried internet connection yet but I will soon .Sound is good for such a thin TV ,But I have a samsung home cinema connected 5:1 which is also outstanding.The style of this TV is amazing so thin with the clear stand is a nice touch . John Lewis were excellent ,delivery driver phoned to confirm a time half an hour before ,and offered to unpack it . This is my first purchase from Jonn Lewis and it exceeded my expectations customer service is second to none .

Great TV
5 Star Review   By micky2011 on John Lewis - Oct 20, 2011   

I`ve had this TV for about two months now and there is not one bad thing I can say about it. The good points are a built in PVR just connect a hard drive up to the USB and record all your programs. A connection lead for your DVD player if it`s not HDMI and up grades the DVD. The picture is amazing and HD channels pure class. There are so many things on this TV it would take to long to list and you can connect it to the internet with a router.

5 Star Review   By Alkehaha on John Lewis - Oct 10, 2011   

I chose this tv based on the picture quality, and can confirm it is very clear with excellent definition. You have to experiment with the different picture modes and I've gone with movie mode which gives a warm/softer image, other than that its good to go out of the box. I've read some reviews on LED tv's that suggest that the sound is poor; do not worry, the sound for the average user is fine and you can tweak the sound fields if you wish to increase/decrease the bass/treble. Set up was a breeze with easy cable connections and the auto program search for the freeview tuner working a treat, finding a total of 120 something chanels. I connected to our wireless internet with relative ease, the tv updated its software to the latest version, but I'm not too sure what the new version has improved upon? The remote is clear, has a good layout thats not too confusing and a really pleasant orange backlight to the keys. My kids love the picture quality when using the Games console and DVD's played through it are razor sharp. We haven't been able to use the 2 pairs of included 3D glases to the best of their ability yet as we don't have any 3D media and I'm not sold on the upscaling from 2D so the jury is still out here. Overall I'm really pleased with the tv, especially the picture quality which is what a tv is all about isn't it? Oh and it looks simply stunning with its slim bezel around the edge of the screen.

5 Star Review   By diidy on John Lewis - Sep 22, 2011   

we exchanged this product from a sony bravio which had a terrible picture, and I am not disappointed. The picture is crystal clear and it is breath taking on ordinary tv. We had to get the engineer back as the stand was uneven but it is a lovely looking tv. Would highly recommend.

Awesomesauce
5 Star Review   By Stuaradr on John Lewis - Sep 15, 2011   

Great TV with a superb picture in both SD and HD. 3D is a little iffy with some crosstalk, but it does make a difference and is quite effective on certain material. I haven't tried with 3D discs yet, just the 3D convertor function. One tip - make sure you choose your cable carefully. Straight ones may poke around the side of the TV, so get right-angled ones. Make sure the 'curved' bit of the hdmi plug is on top though as most connectors are the other way (ukhdmi sell ones which are flexible and are just the ticket). Sound is ok, but I use a receiver, so that's not a problem for me. Apps are good, but connection isn't particularly fast. Skype camera works well and picks up voices even at over 3m. Overall a great TV. Highly recommended.

Fantastic TV
5 Star Review   By IreneMac47 on John Lewis - Sep 13, 2011   

Crystal clear picture with it's slimline bevel surround it's like being at the cinema. Picture is so good looks like it's in 3D without being in 3D. Internet options great although I have a problem with my wireless router which is being sorted out by my service provider. If you purchase one you will not be sorry.

SUPERSLIM TV-FAB PICTURE
5 Star Review   By Welder66 on John Lewis - Sep 3, 2011   

Fast delivery-delivery men prompt and polite as ever. The TV is fantastic- picture quality is great and there are times when the picture takes your breath away!! Easy to set up (haven't used the internet side yet) just needs a little tweaking with the led motion plus (make sure it is turned on otherwise the judder can be distracting). All in all a great tv and we were lucky enough to get the free blu-ray player and glasses too.

Excellent picture quality, sleek styling but dodgy wi-fi
4 Star Review   By TimN on John Lewis - Aug 22, 2011   

This is a superb TV for picture quality. The built-in Freeview HD tuner helps to deliver incredible detail and it displays high speed action without any noticeable judder or blur. Using the internet features the BBC iPlayer is excellent with a surprisingly high quality image. Also included are social networking sites, Youtube etc. plus Samsung apps for the kids. Now the negatives. Despite spending hours trying to get the wi-fi working, and failing, I discovered that many other people have had the same issue. I have now resolved this by fitting a wired connection! Typing web URL's is a slow and clunky affair by use of the handset numeric keypad, however, if you have a Samsung Smartphone, there is a neat qwerty keyboard app that makes life a lot easier.

All good
5 Star Review   By steveking on John Lewis - Jul 27, 2011   

All turned up OK. One little niggle is that the 3 items turn up separately in my case different days but aside from that delivery etc. great as ever from JL. TV great - really thin and bright. It's my first LED, HD and first 3D TV so not much to compare, although I have other LCD TV's from a couple of years back and this is most certainly 2nd generation i.e. thin, light, no heat, iplayer etc. built in. Would be a great upgrade for anyone with a 3+ year old 37 inch or worse. Had a bit of a nightmare

Corrie in 3D?
5 Star Review   By Owen on John Lewis - Jul 14, 2011   

That's right! Watch all your favourite programmes in 3D via the 2D to 3D up scaling that this TV delivers. 3D eyewear is sold separately. The tiny 12mm bezel makes this TV extremely slimline and therefore takes up much less space than it's predecessors. Internet browsing, Facebook and G-mail are just some of the functions available on this smart TV.
