calscouch "Samsung models should hit the stores week 12."
I sure hope so. For the past two months I've been dropping into the local electronic stores to ask when will they be getting the new Samsung Smart TVs. The staff do not seem to know what a Smart TV is so I tell them that according to the Samsung website it enables a TV to connect to the Internet without having to buy an additional device. Then they say they don't know of any current HDTV that can do this and suggest I should buy a Blu-ray player and use the LAN portal to get the Internet.
My wife is adamant that there is no more room for any additional devices as we already have a PVR, a DVD, a Sound Bar, and a Media Player hooked up to the set along with all the tangle of wires and cables that go with them. However, she is willing to purchase a Smart set. The main reason I want one is to subscribe to Netflix and view Youtube on the Net.
