Exzerpt: JG is currently embroiled in a Smart TV war with rival Samsung for dominance of the net-connected landscape. In both TV and Blu-ray, the pair are going head to head with similarly monikered portals (Smart TV and Smart Hub) stuffed with comparable apps and streaming video content.
Pro: First-rate collection of‘net-connected content; solid media streaming
Kontra: Dull to look at; a clattery disc loading tray; only one USB
