Unboxing and configuring the Samsung Evolution Kit (video)


- Advertisement -

I have the 2012 Samsung ES8000 LCD TV and as I wanted the 2013 experience I purchased the Samsung Evolution Kit to upgrade it, and here is how I got on.


By simply attaching the Evolution Kit device into the back of a Samsung Smart TV, consumers can enjoy the latest features that the 2013 Smart TVs have to offer without the expense of buying a 2013 TV.


With hardware enhancements, such as CPU, memory and GPU up to the level of the latest Smart TV, users can enjoy faster speeds for browsing the Internet and multitask by using apps while watching TV.

In addition, Samsung’s Smart Interaction features such as voice control and motion control will be enhanced. Once the Evolution Kit is attached to the slot, 2012 Smart Hub is transformed to 2013 version.


The Evolution Kit fits neatly onto the back of the TV and connects via a single cable.


There is a new remote control too:

The whole process took around 2 hours, which included updating the 2012 firmware before starting the installation and configuration process (watch the video to see what I mean).

Here is the unboxing, connection and configuration video (to keep it short I have edited out all the times where you have to wait for things to download or update):

The Samsung Evolution Kit is available now for £249, but look around as there are deals to be had! I got mine for £219.
