Are Smart TVs Really That Smart

The Smart TV Evolution

Who doesn’t like a cool TV?  In the 90’s, that meant the big screen DLP TV’s, followed by the plasma TV, then the LCD, the LED, and the 3D TV’s.  Following this evolution chain, the Smart TV has become the next hot TV to own.

A Smart TV refers to any TV that has the capability to interface with the Internet and stream a variety of content including YouTube, Netflix, and Hulu.  These TV’s have been growing in popularity in the last few years almost with a direct relationship to the growing number of streaming services available.

Cost and Value of a Smart TV

A Smart TV can cost up to twice of a regular LED TV so it becomes exponentially greater as screen size increases.  The value of a Smart TV comes after you hook it up.  With wireless connectivity, setting up a Smart TV is easy, quick, and careless.  After you go through a step-by-step setup, you’re ready to take full advantage of your new Smart TV.  If you use, or are planning to use, services like Netflix or Hulu, a Smart TV could be very beneficial for you.  It gives you one device to use for all your services.  One device means one remote, and how nice would it be to get rid of a few of your remotes?

Should I get a Smart TV?

Before running out to one of the many tv shops in Aberdeen and spending a lot of your hard earned money on a Smart TV, ask yourself a few questions.  Do you own a late model gaming console (Xbox 360, PS3)?  Do you own a laptop with an HDMI output?  If you'd like a Smart TV, would you get one around the same size as your existing LED or LCD TV?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be wasting money on a Smart TV.

All new gaming consoles have the ability to connect to the Internet and can be used to stream all the same services a Smart TV can.  They also share the same Web 2.0 content capability for cruising the Internet.  If you already have one of these consoles connected to your existing TV, you are already enjoying everything a Smart TV can offer.

Connecting a laptop to an HDTV with a VGA or HDMI cable basically turns your TV into your computer monitor.  Using a wireless keyboard and mouse, you can take use of all the capabilities of your laptop on your existing HDTV.  This is a quick solution that would cost about $40 for an HDMI cable and wireless keyboard and mouse.

If you are just planning on getting a Smart TV about the same size as your existing HDTV, consider a Smart Device instead.  These are peripheral devices that plug into your HDTV and turn your HDTV into a Smart TV.  These can cost as little as $50 and are just as easy and quick to set up as a new Smart TV. 

The Bottom Line

If you are planning on buying a brand new TV and don’t want to deal with all the other devices connected to your TV, you may want to spend the money on a Smart TV.  Otherwise, it is much more cost effective to keep your current HDTV or even buy a new regular HDTV and the peripheral devices to add in.  Just remember to consider all your needs and your existing equipment before deciding.
