Should I buy a SmartTV or a Blu-ray player that’s internet enabled?

Every TV nowadays will have an ethernet connection and will be a so-called "Smart" TV with apps and such. In most cases they are just not easy to use, they're slow and even can be a nuisance at times. It's better to get the "smarts" outside of the TV. Roku and the AppleTV are external boxes that connect to the TV, and are generally better designed products that are also easier to update.
