We've had it a few months now. At first, it was great, easy to use, convenient. I love the large screen, the incredibly clear picture, the easy access to the streaming menu.
Scratch that last part.
Last week, our smart TV went over to the Dark Side.
We had just started to watch a program when the trouble started. The picture stalled repeatedly--not buffering, just stalling. Then, that annoying spinning icon I hate so passionately on our computer appeared on the TV screen.
That's always bad news.
We never got to watch that program. Collin spent most of the evening trying to determine what was wrong and then trying to correct it. He tried turning the TV off, then back on again. Then he tried unplugging it for a few minutes. After that, he did a factory reset that made it necessary to re-enter all of our passwords.
Finally, he got it back on track. But by then, I'd had enough. We're planning to get a TV with a larger screen for the living room, and he'll take this monster into his bedroom. I told him I'd prefer to not get another smart TV. No...next time around, I want the dumbest boob tube we can find!
