The Samsung Smart TVs are in my opinion a better option then the regular Samsung TV or the LG LED TV. The Smart TV's offer you the ability to connect over your WiFi connect to apps like Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Facebook.com
What is the best brand to buy when purchasing a tv?
I would look at purchasing either a Vizio TV if you are looking for a good tv deal or you can look at purching a Sony or Sharp TV. I have 2 Sony TVs at my house and they have lasted a long time and I think is worth the extra cost.
