Can anyone tell me if this feature of certain Samsung TVs worth getting?
Has anyone used it?
Does it play movies / avi files directly off a USB key?

It kind of sounds too good to be true so Im not sure whether to shell out a little extra for it. I'm worried it'd be a bit tempermental and ultimately useless.

it is a very nice feature. it even load srt subtitle (and others which I haven't tested yet)
too bad it doesn't support AAC audio codec inside MKV container (I'm using UA40C6200).
you can refer to the user manual for supported codec (for example).

I have a Samsung UE46C8700 LED TV. I just recently cam across this USB Connect Share Movie device. But what is it? Is it similar to a USB memory stick where movie & music files can be stored for display on the TV? Or is it a WIFI stick that allows you to play movie files from your computer and show it on the TV screen. Actually, I am looking for the later. On my TV, it's possible to use a USB stick to play a file on the TV. I guess the TV has it's own built in movie viewer software. Thanks!
