Samsung Smart TV UA50ES6200

Hi All,

I have recently bought the above model.
The picture quality is good but I also got this keeping in mind that I would be able to watch movies etc on-line through the browser - I was assuming it would work as a computer browser and have no issues - I was wrong about that!!
If I open up a video through a website after 10-15 mins it comes up with an error "your browser has unexpectedly stopped due to memory or an unknown issue" - Sometimes it works fine on some sites like when I watch live sports online it doesn't have any issues.
I did a bit of investigation and found that this is one of the limitations of the Samsung browser which is very sad

See here - http://support-us.samsung.com/cyber/popup/iframe/pop_troubleshooting_fr.jsp?idx=406298

I was wondering if anyone has installed an android 4.0 HD tv box to the smart tv to make it more smarter Happy

Does the browser work better with the box ? i.e. I can watch online movies on the browser without any memory issues coming up.

BTW I am based in NZ

Thanks and appreciate all your feedback

The browser is very limited in memory so for video watching you want to see if there is an app such as Netflix for this.

I know of no box that will fix this limited browser.

No HULU.com

I have such a thing and still no HULU.com. For that I'm back to the PC. There's a similar gotcha for other sites.

Be sure to see if you can return this if it doesn't live up to your expectations. I know what a lot of folk are looking for is the full PC Web Browser Experience. For that we need a laptop.
