Now that we’ve all made the jump from SD to HD, TV manufacturers are desparate to find ways to make us all upgrade again. 3D is one such tactic, but so is the Smart TV craze. Thing is, why bother when devices like the new Favi SmartStick lets you turn any HD TV into a fully-functioned Smart TV for under £60?
The SmartStick is a real gem of a device. It slits into your on of your TV’s HD slots, and brings you a computing experience powered by Android Jelly Bean. The stick itself costs $50 (£30), while the optional (but probably essential) wireless keyboard/trackpad remote is $40 (£24).
That cost gifts your TV access to a full web browser, alongside an army of apps from the Google Play Store. That includes some that have been tailored to suit a large HD display, like Netflix.
All in all, it’s a top option for anyone who wants to eke more from their existing set without paying a heinous amount for a new Smart TV.
