I guess your probably right its a issue with crappy specs on TV, NIC, Cpu, OS and Ram.
To much to hope from a Linux based OS & Arm cpus.
Web browser, network speed & WIFI performance should be 1st priority for a Smart TV.
Because if you have gimped network speed, smart functions will be slow, and useless.
I called Samsung, remote support, they denied that they had internet speed tests on their older products.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7qIRZX0MoM
All they could do try to update firmware and is reset smart hub & TV, which I have done already.
Tried to point out bugs in firmware 1108, but they said TV works fine😱
I asked what changed from firmware 1105.7 ->1107--> 1108, "it fixes stuff". 😱 (firmware updated in less then a week)
Support kept saying TV is not a computer lol. (Cpu, Ram,OS, flash storage, display, usb ports, bluetooth, network card, & wifi. I don't know but sounds like a computer to me😁)
Hard to believe Roku & Apple TV run circles around the smart functions😱
But i guess gotta wait 1 more year until they finally give a crap about, seamless functional Smart TV functions.
Samsung just bought Boxee. http://www.digitaltrends.com/home-theater/why-did-samsung-buy-boxee/
