Samsung SEK-1000/ZA 2013 Evolution Kit

Protecting your TV Investment

Smart TV‘s are becoming the norm, and many Cordcutters out there are opting to buy smart TV’s because of the amazing access to web content they provide. But what could be worse than spending a fortune on a big item like a TV, only to find out that a few months later a newer model with much cooler features is released? Well Samsung is working hard to solve this problem. You can now get those groundbreaking new features, and even better performance, without having to buy an entire new TV. The unique Evolution Kit from Samsung can make this possible.

Samsung SEK-1000/ZA 2013 Evolution Kit ($300  $135) is an add-on module that grafts on the special port given on the back of high-end Samsung smart TVs. This 2013 kit turns Samsung 2012 TVs into 2013 models –  in terms of Smart TV features. This kit replaces the dual-core processor with a quad-core processor and provides an enhanced look and feel, improved voice control, and many other amazing tweaks. The kit also includes a new remote control.

How to Install the Samsung Evolution Kit


Samsung SEK-1000/ZA 2013 Evolution Kit is very easy to install. Follow the “Quick Setup” printed guide which includes everything from the installation steps to updating the TV’s firmware. The Evolution Kit delivers a few hardware improvements, such as an extension of the TV’s internal memory from 785MB to 1.11GB, which provides you with an extra storage for apps and future updates.

Evolution kit also upgrades your 2012 Smart Hub, so you can enjoy progressive innovations such as S Recommendation. With S Recommendation, your TV will recommend you movies and TV shows based on your viewing preferences. The 2013 Smart Hub Panel UI updates your system to deliver a richer content in a more user-friendly format. Samsung’s current 2013 Smart Hub interface replaces the scroll-bar menu with a five-panel interface that permits easier and faster discovery of  content such as On TV, Apps, Social, Movies & TV Shows and Photos, Videos & Music.

Evolution Kit is an interesting concept to provide peace of mind for TV owners who are worried about their TV becoming outdated. If you have a 2012 ES9000 or ES8000 or ES7000 Series LED, or 2012 E8000 Series Plasma TV, you can upgrade them to 2013 Smart TV with this great tool.

Samsung really deserves credit for going through with such a cool idea. And if I were in the market for a Smart TV, I would definitely keep this in mind.

As always, comments are welcome and encouraged.
