I've surf the web using their web browser and they can load my blog 100%. So yeah good to go haha =) I find this will be helpful for grandparents who know how to use the PC but the monitor wasn't big enough. Now they have a 40" screen as their monitor and the font is surely bigger and easier to access.
However, since this smart TV is not a complicated PC, the speed will be slower and it do take some time to load ya. If you want swift performance, connect your PC to this TV Screen then. Yeah they have a port to connect to your PC just like a monitor.
