Football fans rejoice, the big day is finally here! We're of course talking about Super Bowl Sunday, and this time around, the San Francisco 49ers will face off against the Kansas City Chiefs (feels weird for the New England Patriots to not be participating, right?). While the game is just a few hours away (at the time of this writing), there is still time to tweak your TV's settings to ensure you're do sell your eyeballs short. Before we get to those tips, take note that Super Bowl LIV starts at 6:30pm Eastern (3:30pm Pacific). There will be plenty of pre-game content, a halftime show featuring Jennifer Lopez and Shakira, and the usual round of humorous commercials, all broadcast on Fox. And... Read more...

I remember buying a big screen TV back in the day and not being overly fazed by the fact that it was nearly as big as a Buick. This was before thin LCD screens had permeated the market. It's quite the different landscape now, and prices are a lot cheaper, too. If you have not shopped for a TV in a bit, good news, you can upgrade to a fancy new model with various bells and whistles for cheaper than ever before. To help you do just that, we have rounded up a handful of big screen TVs that are currently on sale. Show above, for example, is a JVC 4K Roku Smart TV (LT-70MAW795) for $529.99 on Walmart. Forget about squinting to see the action, because 70 inches of diagonal screen real estate is easy... Read more...
Subscribing to the Stadia Pro tier is supposed to net players several perks, the highlight being the ability to play games at a 4K resolution (3840x2160) at 60 frames per second—it's one of the main selling points for the $9.99 per month subscription fee. Be that as it may, some users have voiced concern that Stadia's 4K gaming experience is not living up to expectations. In the lead up to Stadia launch, Google did plenty of chest puffing, especially in regards to how its cloud gaming service stacks up to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in horsepower. According to Google, Stadia can delivers 10.7 GPU teraflops of performance, which is more than the Xbox One X (6 TFLOPs) and PS4 Pro (4.2... Read more...
Black Friday is nearly upon us, though as we have seen in recent years, the deals and bargains are rolling in ahead of time. We are not just talking about previews, either, but actual sales. Over at Walmart, for example, you can score a 70-inch smart TV with a 4K resolution, support for high dynamic range (HDR), and a built-in Roku streamer for a $499.99. That is a banging price for 70 inches of real estate. The Element 70-inch 4K Roku Smart TV for $499.99 has a list price of $798.00, so it's discounted nearly $300 right now.

Earlier this year, Razer upgraded its beefy Blade Pro 17 gaming laptop with 9th generation Intel Core processors. Now, for the start of fall, Razer has turned its attention to giving gamers a long-awaited display upgrade. While the Blade Pro 17 was previously available with a 144Hz Full HD display, Razer is now making available a crispy new 17.3-inch 120Hz 4K touch display. In addition, the display can crank to 400 nits and it covers 100 percent of the Adobe RGB color gamut. On the internal hardware front, you'll still find an Intel Core i7-9750H processor (2.6GHz base clock, 4.5GHz boost clock) and 16GB of DDR4-2667 memory (upgradeable to 64GB). Pumping pixels to that expansive... Read more...
Back in late July, NVIDIA updated its SHIELD TV 4K streaming box to SHIELD Experience Upgrade 8.0, which was based on Android 9 Pie. The update also brought some new features along with a few bugfixes. However, what many SHIELD TV owners weren’t expecting were issues with existing 4K video playback.  NVIDIA has now acknowledged that a handful of apps have suddenly stopped playing back content at 4K resolutions. In a post to the official NVIDIA support forums, a staffer wrote: We’re aware of a 4K playback issue impacting a small number of apps on SHIELD TV devices and are working on a solution. In most of these cases, users can cast these movies to SHIELD in 4K using built-in... Read more...
If you have any aspiration of owning a DJI Mavic drone, brace yourself for having to fork over several hundred dollars, or even over a grand—MSRPs range from $799 for the Mavic Air all the way up to $1,899 for the Mavic 2. Accessories and add-ons are extra. A cheaper variant may be in the wings, however, with rumors of a Mavic Mini drone debuting for $399. If there is in fact a Mavic Mini done and it debuts at that price, it would be the least expensive Mavic model available. Incidentally, $399 is what DJI's Spark drone now costs (it debuted at $499). The Mavic series is more fully featured, with one of the key upgrades being the ability to record videos at 4K—the Spark records at... Read more...

If one thing is for sure, recent home TV and movies services market changes have been seismic. Over the years we have gone through Beta, VHS, laser discs, DVDs, HD-DVD, Blu-Ray, but nothing has reshaped the home entertainment landscape like streaming video. Each time a new form factor for delivering movies in the home launches, the old form factors have eventually gone extinct and it appears that Blu-ray may be the next format to die off. Samsung has announced that it is not going to produce any new Blu-ray players for the U.S. market. Samsung announced that no new 1080p or 4K Blu-ray players would be produced for the U.S. and the new announcement gives more detail than an earlier statement by... Read more...

At long last, the Radeon VII is here, it has been reviewed and benchmarked (be sure to check out our own hands-on analysis), and it is now up to consumers to pull the trigger or take a pass. One of the selling points is that the Radeon VII has 16GB of HBM2 memory. Is it overkill? Not according to AMD, which believes the generous allocation of memory gives the card some future proofing. Of course, honest-to-goodness future proofing is unattainable. That's not the point, however. AMD decided to design and build a card that is simultaneously attractive to gamers and professionals alike, and is pitching the excess memory (compared to 8GB cards) giving the Radeon VII some legs. "This new GPU is meant... Read more...
