This unit only has internet access through its built in applications. You Tube, Netflix etc. Browsing the web outside of the built in links is not supported on this tv.
I was considering a sharp tv my self, but have decided on samsung now because of its smart TV capabilities.
Still with in the return policy time? If this is a big deal breaker on the TV?
Sorry I am not familiar with what apps your model of tv has. I was just stating fixed apps like youtube netflix etc not full web access. The apps can very from model to model.
Should of stated that clearer
As far as full web access some of the Samsung models do offer this. Though the user interface is somewhat limited. Spelling out your searches with the arrow keys of your remote takes a while. The higher end models have a qwerty keyboard remote which improves the function. Although I think having a computer, tablet, or smartphone by your TV works better. Of course if your TV is going to be your main source of internet then the samsung may work for you if you get a model that supports the qwerty remote.
