Verge score: 5.8

The Samsung Optical SmartHub has a wireless router built-in, so you can set it up as your primary access point and use it to serve media up from an external hard drive (there's no internal storage). If you use Samsung's AllShare Play, you can access your content anywhere you can get online, not just across a local network, so this makes for an ideal media streamer if you don't want to leave your computer running constantly.
