WEBTV CLASSIC

Pros:easy access to the internet, email, interactive with your t.v. set

Cons:webtv is not a computer, can not visit all the sites on the internet, it's slow loading webpages

I love my webtv. I bought it about 6 months ago for email, and I"ve used it every day since I turned it on. It's an easy way to get access to the internet without buying a computer. And it's portable, you can hook it up to an t.v. set and phone line, and it will work. So, you can take your webtv along with you on trips if you wanted to. The bad part about webtv is that it is not a computer. You can't download anything and the webtv browser does not support javascript. That means that many parts of the internet "contain a type of message that webtv can't read". Also, webtv is it's own browser, different from netscape or any of the more up to date browser versions I've noticed on some websites. Webtv upgrades their browser remotely when an upgrade becomes avalible and users have the opportunity to except the upgrade or not. Computer users can not read webtv emails with html in them. That was disappointing for me because I email my family often and I was learning html on my webtv. I couldn't share what I had created. Because, webtv is not a computer. However, I own a webtv classic, and I'm thinking about upgrading to a webtv plus. That way my webtv can become interactive with the television shows that I watch. Also, you can hook up a scanner, a printer, and you can send pictures through your vcr or from off the t.v. with a plus unit. It's a wonderful device that upgrades the t.v. that you already have. It controls the vcr for easy recording, it tells you what's on t.v., and let's your go directly from the t.v. to the webpage that's being advertised.I would recommend webtv to anyone who wants easy access to the internet. Wonderful introduction to cyberspace, easy to navigate with the universal remote or the wireless keyboard. Some of the pages load really slow, too. Webtv is not as fast as a computer when it comes to loading some of the web pages.
