Crutchfield: Samsung Evolution Kit
Our take on the Samsung SEK-1000 Evolution Kit by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
Upgrade your TV's Internet performance
The Evolution Kit module attaches easily to the back of the TV
Samsung's Evolution Kit is a revolutionary idea. Connect this compact module to your compatible 2012 Samsung Smart TV and you immediately boost its processing power, adding new features and functions. At the heart of the Evolution Kit is Samsung's quad core processor, which speeds up opening and using apps, and makes web browsing faster and more responsive.
New ways to control your TV
In addition to a significant jump in processing power, the Evolution Kit includes Samsung's trackpad remote control with built-in microphone for voice control. Samsung's Voice Interaction lets you use a natural, conversational style of speaking for searching and controlling the TV.
There's a new look, too. All your content options are organized in the multi-panel Smart Hub on-screen interface. Receive live TV program suggestions via "S Recommendation" from the On TV Panel, rent movies and catch up on shows you may have missed from the Apps panel, and use the Social panel to keep in touch with Facebook friends.
The SEK-1000 Evolution Kit is compatible with these 2012 Samsung Smart TVs: ES7500, ES8000, and ES9000 LED-LCD models, and E7000 and E8000 plasma models.

3 questions already asked
It cannot work with a Sony TV. It will only work with select Samsung TV's. I am not aware of any such upgrade hardware for a Sony TV but that could change so it may be worth a call to an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 to check.
