I have to admit that I am a sports fanatic. I am not however a technology fanatic. I love all the new advances and how they improve our lives in general but, I am not as tech savvy as I would like to be. My inspiration to purchase this particular type of television came from a sales associate at the department store. I was able to get a demonstration of how the television operated and a general instruction of how to hook it up. I recommend that you do that as well if you aren't all that tech savvy. The thing I immediately loved the most about the t.v. was the actually the high definition capability. The picture is shape, clear and crisp - and, perfect for Monday night football, my true love. Although I had a demonstration in the store, I still found it quite difficult to get the hang of it. Once I did though, I was able to access my subscription to netflix directly on my t.v. screen. It improved my overall experience in a major way. The built in sound system is really something special as well. It seem's like it offers more of a surround sound experience than the older not smart t.v. models. I love all of it's capabilities but, to be honest, I am still learning all the ins and outs. I have even learned how to shop online from my t.v. I was really overly impressed with myself as a result of that. Also, the t.v. came with free pair of 3D glasses. They are really cool for family movie nights. It was an added bonus that I also enjoy, it kind of sweetened the deal for me a bit. I love the television so far but as I mentioned earlier, if you are less than tech savvy, try a store that has the ability to offer free demonstrations.
