    This was my main reasoning for purchasing the TV in the first place, because we knew what was to come - we liked it so much on it's basic firmware that we bought a Logitech Revue for the living room, the update is downloading now and I will post some reviews after I get some face time with it...hopefully the living room TV gets some HC love soon too :)

    I wonder if my Samsung TV will get an ICS update. :p That is pretty sweet though, can't wait to see your review.

    Besides the obvious layout difference and the Market the first thing I've noticed is there is a built in app dedicated to finding TV shows on the internet, for instance instead of opening the browser and going to the AMC site to find the walking dead now I open one app, go to the drama section and scroll to the shows I want, seems, Fox, NBC, and other networks you could not access via 2.1 firmware are on board, over 190 episodes of NCIS, 150 of House, these are shows that aren't even available on Netflix

    ...of course there's a catch to those wonderful television shows, pay per episode - hope they come out with an all access pass :)
