As a PC DIY enthusiast, you likely enjoy tinkering with your computer. You like getting your hands dirty with installing all the different components, messing around with the BIOS and overclocking that beast to extract every last drop of performance you can out of that motherboard, CPU or graphics card. When you plop yourself down in the living room for some Game of Thrones or Big Bang Theory, however, you just want it to work. And it doesn't get much smarter or much easier than the newest generation of LG Smart TVs.
Based on a recent survey conducted by Charlton Strategic Research, LG Smart TVs powered by webOS were voted the #1 smart TV for overall ease of use. You want to share some great content from your smartphone or tablet? Take advantage of the NFC connectivity for quick pairing and the Miracast wireless display technology for 1080p video streaming, complete with 5.1 channel audio. Want to get it from your laptop? There's Intel WiDi tech in there.
As much as you might consider rigging up an HTPC to the "dumb" TV in your living room instead, you also have to realize that there are going to be limitations and there are going to be complications. With these LG smart TVs, everything is easy and it just works. You get easy access to Hulu Plus, Netflix, and YouTube, as well as a bunch of free and premium apps and games, all of which are easily navigated with the universal Magic Remote. That one remote can control your Blu-ray player, home theater system, set-top box and sound bar too.
