I just got a 40" sony TV and BDPs 5100 from costco. I am trying to use this combo as a smart tv. How do i use the webbrowser functionality? I was looking to buy the samsung smart TV but the Sony salesman at costco mentioned that i could get this combo and use it as a smart tv. What would you guys recommend? I dont have a use for a blu ray player, but please let me know which one would be better for a smart tv? (like i could go to google and search for some old movies etc and watch?? Please advise.

I have the BDP-S5100 and it is a great device overall. I use it as my primary "smart" interface, even though my Vizio M-series TV has similar functions. The Sony Blu-ray player has a browser and it has a ton of channels. If you feel like splurging a bit, the PS3 is a great choice. I don't consider it important to have smart features built into a TV, and even if they are there, sometimes it's better to use a separate device, depending on your viewing habits.
