Good TV with some flaw
, April 3, 2012
This review is from: Samsung UN40ES6100 40-Inch 1080p 240 CMR Slim LED HDTV (Black) (2012 Model) (Electronics)
The model I have is the UN46ES6100, this TV itself is great; the picture quality and smart feature is very nice.
The big downside is with its web browsing or anything that involve typing. Since it came with only a regular remote and every time you want to type something like say your 10letter password you have use the up/down/right/left and select key for each of the letter. As well as trying to move the mouse pointer with the remote is so ridiculous the amount of time you have to press for it to move barely. Along with this there wasn't any postcard for a better remote like other people have mention, since we bought two and either of them have it.
The good new is that it is compatible with some wireless mouse and keyboard. The bad part is that none of its documentation list what it is compatible with, and nothing can be found on its website.
They offer a App for apple and android, BUT right now the apple version doesn't really work (so many people are having issue of it keep saying "Disconnected...Network Connection Failure" they haven't update it since fall of 2011. As for the Android version of it is actually working but trying to move the cursor on a web page is a real pain and effort to even move it a little as well as a full keyboard is not accessible anywhere. It is supposedly pop up when you need to type but haven't had work yet.
Overall the picture quality and sound of this for the price is awesome. Not to mention some of their app like Netflix, Allshare and other that you could download. The setup of it to the internet through lan or wifi was really really easy.
The Main downfall of this device is that for a smart tv, it just really suck that you can't make full use of it due to the lacking of a proper input tool (like a keyboard or a better remote with a full keyboard)
