Compared to the LG ST600 Smart TV Upgrader SP820 is much better. The Magic remote control is awesome and user friendly. You wont be needing a wireless keyboard.
Love the 3D support and the Premium content collection.
However, SP 820 does not fully support Plex (LT600 did) and instead supports the NeroMediaHome 4, which I am not very impressed with. The DLNA compatibility makes the Smartshare to play movies using the Plex Media Server, movies streamed from a PC. But, during the play it gets interrupted and you can't get back to the place where it got stuck. Also, LT 600 (MediaLink)used to display the Movie Information such as poster and a synopsis whereas on SP 820 (SmartShare) with NeroMediaHome I miss this feature. I hope LG would release a software upgrade for this. Other than this issue, there is nothing much to complain. The picture quality and the performance is great. I am happy with the product so far.
