i'd much rather buy smarthub on this device and save money by being able to buy the samsung tv you just reviewed without a tuner, or any other gubbins. Just the screen and speakers will do fine. Surely there is a gap in the market waiting to be filled or is the marginal cost of all this technical wizadry zero so tv manufacturers chuck it in for free?

"..built-in Wi-Fi adapter, which ... allows you to stream media from PCs and NAS drives on your home network".

Initially I thought this didn't work at all. It's certainly fiddly to set up.
I was under the impression my computer (a Windows Home Server) was DNLA compliant 'out of the box' but seems I was wrong about that (or at least it is not 'Samsung DNLA' compatible)...
You have to install the Samsung AllShare software (or Samsung-compatible third party DNLA media server software such as Serviio) on the PC / NAS hosting the files.
Load the software, set it up to point it to the correct library (folder) and as if my magic, the Samsung suddenly sees the remote files. Hopefully, it'll play them too...

Just Bought this model and like all the quality of the tuner and DVD/Bluray upscaling to my Pioneer 1080i Tv.

What is not mentioned in any review i have read is that when your recording you can't use the smart hub features, watch a Movie attached to the the usb port or through your shares. People should know this before buying it. Im keeping it because i can switch to my WD LIVE on other AV and watch movies on their.

Just an update. Spoke to Samsung today about the the recording issue. Samsung said they thought this had been fixed with the last firmware update. They told me they will fix it and let me know when the file is ready to download. So glad i called them, now the PVR is almost perfect.
