LG Smart TV Upgrader Review
Here’s a review from HDGuru on a LG Smart TV device designed to upgrade your television to a “smart” tv. The guru seems to love the picture quality and only notes the price as a big caveat, but a glance over at reviews on Amazon are much less flattering.
You get the expected HDMI output, plus optical for those inclined towards that style of digital audio transmission. A USB connection is an added bonus, giving the Smart TV Upgrader the ability to play music, video, and photos from flash drives. The stubby remote is similar in size to the Roku’s, though the button clicks are far more precise. The center button has a touch/motion functionality. This works marginally better than wishing. There’s a slight sluggishness to the controls and interactions. It’s not a big deal, but it’s not as polished as the Apple TV.
