    Dublin Nothing!
    It's got some very good apps - BFI, Deezer and You Tube. I've never had wi-fi connection before, and the smart TV experience is fantastic.
    I was unable to download some apps - Vevo would crash when I attempted to search fro content.
    A hard copy manual would be better than an e-manual.
