    I believe that all TVs today have the same apps. Netflix, YouTube, Amazon ... What more do you need? The software of the Tv is important. Android from Sony runs very well

    Key really is can you add apps and will they continue to update IPlayer  etc .

    I really have a very good experience with my Samsung TV. According to your budget, I would suggest you to check for Samsung UN65RU7100FXZA. It is a 65 inch TV and it may come in your budget also. I have heard very good reviews of it so far.

    Get a Samsung curve. Best decision I ever made!

    As mentioned, forget the choice of in built apps but make your choice on the best TV viewing capability you can get for your money, you can always add apps using a separate streaming advice but you can't get rid of a crap viewing experience.

    I hate my "Smart" TV. Bought one last your as an "upgrade" for my 32" Samsung. Went with a Samsung for the upgrade. Won't buy a "smart" TV again. Slow, buggy, advertisements on the menu bar. If I could find a HD-4K 42"-55" TV that was light and thin, and just a TV, not some wannabe oversized tablet with a rubbish operating system I'd be happy. My plan for my current TV is to disconnect it from the internet and buy a Firestick or something like it, hell a Raspberry Pi would function better!

    As with anything that's why it's always best to do research and read independent reviews before deciding to make a purchase. You seem to suggest that all smart TV's are like this but that is certainly not true and my one is very good.

    They are getting faster , my newest smart TV is almost instantly responding . It's noticeably faster than the one I purchased last year .

    I'd buy another smart TV , worst case down the line I coul buy a set top box

    Do you think it would be better to buy a TV with a smart TV or a simple TV and buy a set-top box for it. What will work faster?
    You can't buy a half decent TV that isn't smart.  You don't have to use the smart functions if you prefer to use an external box.

    5 year warranty at Costco if you live near to one. All tv's working in warehouse for you to view.
    Just need to be a member or know someone who is. 

    Also available online to non members but they add a surcharge.

    Excellent customer support from this American company
