Specs include a USB 2.0 jack for decoding images and videos (including XviD and MPEG4) stored on hard drives or cameras. The TV hooks onto LAN via Ethernet or go for the optional $35 wireless adapter to access DLNA content plus Samsung’s new InfoLink RSS service, with news, stocks and weather info from USA Today, in “adjustable overlays”.
