The main advantage for many people is to be able play Blu-ray discs. Since all our TVs that have Smart Hub are at least 1080p, the image quality is quite high. There are a few other minor bonuses, but I think that's the main one.
Just purchased a Samsung Smart TV. Is it best to also use a blu-ray player? What are any specific capabilities when having both tv and b-r player? Thanks for any info.
