Everyone wants a big, bright, high-resolution HDTV, but budget concerns prevent some consumers from pulling the trigger. Well, if you’re one of those people, Best Buy currently has a deal in place that may have you running for your credit card. There is an Insignia (Best Buy’s house brand), 55” 4K SmartTV, with HDR support and built-in Amazon FireTV (with voice remote) on sale for only $249 at the moment. That is a ridiculously low price for a 55” 4K HDR television, especially one with this one’s features and specifications that comes so highly rated. There are some crappy, cheap 4K televisions currently on the market (I should know, I have one that I hate),... Read more...
Remember those NVIDIA Big Format Gaming Display (BFGD) 4K HDR behemoths that were first announced back at CES 2018? While NVIDIA and its partners hoped to get products out the door sometime in 2018, the initiative was officially delayed in late August,with NVIDIA saying that products would begin shipping in 2019. Well, 2019 is here and we present to you the Hewlett-Packard Omen X Emperium. Although it's showing up a year late, the first of the massive NVIDIA-backed gaming displays looks to impress. For starters, the Omen X Emperium measures 65 inches diagonally, and is of course backed by NVIDIA G-SYNC HDR technology for fluid gameplay. Oh, and did we mention that you can crank... Read more...
We last visited the Arlo family of wireless security cameras way back in October 2016 with the launch of the Arlo Pro. Today, Netgear's Arlo wireless security camera brand is back at again with its latest stab at competitors like Nest and Ring: enter the Arlo Ultra. The Arlo Ultra looks to leapfrog past the competition by upping the recording resolution and adding high dynamic resolution (HDR) into the mix. While the Nest Cam and Ring family of security cameras can record at Full HD (1080p) resolution, the Arlo Ultra records at 4K resolution. According to the company, this provides unmatched image clarity and detail which will allow the Arlo Ultra to better pinpoint a person's face or even... Read more...
It might be taking content developers a long time to flood the market with 4K movies and TV shows, but one thing is for sure, the hardware is in place on the consumer side. TVs with native 4K support are the new norm, and the transition is taking place on the peripheral side as well. Case in point, Amazon today announced a new version of its streaming Fire TV Stick that brings 4K resolution support into the fold. It doesn't stop there, either. Amazon's new Fire TV Stick 4K adds support for the two most popular high dynamic range (HDR) standards, those being Dolby Vision and HDR10+, to make those 4K Ultra HD visuals pop. Of course, you'll need a TV that also supports HDR, which are also starting... Read more...
LG is getting ready to release a 31.5-inch FreeSync monitor with a 4K resolution, HDR support, and high color fidelity for what we hope will be a relatively affordable price. While the MSRP has yet to be announced, word on the web is that it will cost around 55,000 yen, which is a little over $480 in US currency. According to the monitor's product listing on LG's website in Japan, the new monitor sports a VA panel boasting 95 percent coverage of the DCI-P color space. It has a rated response time of 4ms (GTG), a 60Hz refresh rate, 3,000:1 contrast ratio, and 178-degree viewing angles (horizontal and vertical). For the most part, this looks to be a higher end display. Where it seemingly falters,... Read more...
4K panels have pretty much taken over the big-screen television market, and 4K PC gaming was brought to the forefront thanks in part to the GeForce GTX 10 series over two years ago. But what about 8K? It will still be many years before the leap to 8K become mainstream, but that isn't stopping AU Optronics (AUO) from whetting out appetites with a gigantic 85-inch 8K television -- we're talking a 7690x4320 resolution here. Oh, and did we mention that it has a 120Hz refresh rate? We don't think that we've seen so much "win" in one place, but here we are. The television features a High Dynamic Resolution (HDR) panel that uses Quantum Dot technology and features peak brightness of 1200 nits... Read more...
HDR -- you’ve undoubtedly seen the three letters stamped on the box of the latest 4K monitors and TVs while passing by them in the store, and while it is still relatively new HDR (High-Dynamic Range) technology is, without question, changing the way in which our senses take in next-gen entertainment. NVIDIA is at the forefront of driving this cutting-edge display technology with new G-SYNC monitors that profoundly impact three primary pillars of how visual entertainment is perceived by the human eye: color, brightness, and contrast. How that translates to today’s visually advanced games is a true-to-life spectrum of vibrant colors, dramatically more intense light... Read more...

When the first 4K TVs hit the market, their high price and dearth of worthwhile content made them a tough sell. But before long, 4K TVs became much more affordable, to the point today where there's little reason not to consider one if you're looking to upgrade. TCL's 55R617 unit is a perfect example of how the incredible value found in today's TVs. At $649.50 (as of the time of writing), this 55-inch television supports both HDR10 and DolbyHDR formats with the DCI-P3 color profile, so that you can enjoy current or remastered HDR-supported content with much richer color than typical sets can provide. One spec the set provides that's a little misleading is the 120Hz clear motion index,... Read more...
Microsoft has just rolled out a brand-new Windows Insider preview build for those running on the Fast Ring. This release is build number 17711, and is part of the upcoming Redstone 5 release, expected to become available this fall. In it, a number of quality improvements have been made, especially with regards to HDR control, and also the Edge web browser. For starters, Edge has seen a couple of nice improvements, including the ability to customize your Reading View with different themes, in the event one happens to be easier on your eyes, or just looks better.

Acer is rolling out a new 4K Ultra HD monitor for graphics designers and other professionals who need pinpoint color accuracy and lots of brightness for their projects. They will find both in the company's new ProDesigner BM270, a 27-inch monitor with a 3840x2160 resolution at 60Hz, and an eye-searing 1,000 nits brightness rating to deliver high dynamic range (HDR) content. This is not the first HDR monitor to boast a 1,000 nits brightness rating, though such animals are comparatively rare in the wild—the vast majority of HDR displays top out in the 400-450 nits range. In addition to the impressive brightness, Acer claims the ProDesigner BM270 is pre-tuned and tested to ensure Delta E<1... Read more...
We’ve been hearing about 4K G-SYNC HDR monitors with 144Hz panels ever since CES 2017. At the time, both ASUS and Acer announced monitors that adhered to NVIDIA’s announced specs. 2017 came to a close and CES 2018 came and went with no sign of these mythical G-SYNC HDR monitors. However, NVIDIA is now saying that the time has come to unleash the beast, so to speak. The first 27-inch 144Hz monitors supporting G-SYNC HDR will launch in by the end of this month, or early June at the latest. All of these monitors will of course feature a 4K resolution (3840x2160) with virtually zero input lag. A next generation G-SYNC controller is incorporated, while the panel itself will have cover...
