What Makes A TV Smart?
What is a smart TV? A smart TV is any TV that has built-in Internet. With it you can access online services such as video, social networks, messaging, web browsing and more. A smart TV does not describe how the screen displays, and could be LED, LCD, or Plasma.
Finding what fits:
Many people still have no clue what a smart TV is, which is why we decided to include that above. So To begin our search we had to think of what we needed this TV for. In our case it was the bedroom. We didn’t want anything too big since our current bedroom isn’t the size of a living room. We settled on a 32 inch since that is pretty much the base point of all flat panel TV’s. Which when viewing at closer proximity is still very decent.
Next, we are pretty much always streaming something from Netflix or Amazon. So we’re always plugging in a laptop. In fact we own a laptop just for that sole purpose. I guess it doesn’t come as a surprise that when we found out what a smart TV does we immediately fell in love with the idea. A Smart TV would mean no more extra laptop and awkward set ups. We didn’t need any extra boxes or such laying around.
The price of a TV is not cheap. So when we heard about this new fancy smart TV technology we immediately though it would be out of our budget. Surprisingly after looking around a bit that these smart TV’s were actually quite affordable. I mean compared to our last 32 inch set the price was about the same. We also like to stay with the Samsung brand. Buying a TV shouldn’t be difficult and for us this just sounded like a good fit. It was also cheaper than the 32 inch model.
