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...
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas officially kicks off Monday, January, 7, and it appears Samsung is champing at the bit to introduce some new display products. One of them is its Q950TS 8K OLED TV with a design that virtually "eliminates the screen bezel," as was the subject of a recent rumor. Looking over a translated press release that went live today, 99 percent of the 8K QLED TV's front construction belongs to the actual screen. Samsung calls this an "infinity design," and says it offers "outstanding immersion" and "sets a new standard for TV screens." It is also incredibly thin at just 15mm, with a completely flat surface. Check out this side view... It certainly looks gorgeous,... Read more...
Brighter, more vibrant TVs are coming as the industry at large continues to push the envelope, with companies trying to separate their respective products from one another. Incidentally, TCL has been a big player in this space. TCL recently laid claim to the "world's first TV with mini-LED technology" with its 8-series, and now the company tells us it plans on showcasing the next-generation of mini-LED technology at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas next month. The company has aspirations of being "a dominant player in the global TV industry," and pushing mini-LED technology is one way to get there. As currently utilized, TCL's higher-end models leverage mini-LED backlighting,... 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...
Anyone who pays for cable television knows that the low rates that big cable companies advertise aren't the rates you end up paying over the long haul. Cable TV bills commonly get inflated when it comes to the myriad of fees that are tacked on in your billing statement. Thankfully, new legislation has made it past the House and Senate in the U.S. and is now heading to President Trump's desk for his signature. A new bill has been lobbied for by Consumer Reports that's called The Television Viewer Protection Act of 2019. The act was stuffed inside an appropriations bill, but the cable TV industry was aware and was able to pull some last-minute shenanigans and have a key provision in the bill changed.... 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. This also matches the lowest price we have ever seen this model go for. Here are some specs at a glance... Diagonal Panel Size: 70 inches Aspect Ratio: 16:9 Panel Resolution:... Read more...
Whoever opined that money does not buy happiness has never ridden on a jet ski or dined on a seafood feast at an expensive restaurant. If anything might change that person's mind, however, it could be LG's new 8K OLED TV. I mean, just look at how happy those people are in the press image above! Sure, it's totally staged, but the specs on this thing are beastly. For one, it's the world's first 8K OLED TV (88Z9), according to LG. That works out to a delightful 7680x4320 resolution, or 33 million self-emitting pixels. For comparison, that is a whopping 16 times pixels than a Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) TV, and four times higher than a 4K (3840x2160) display. Sure, there's a definite lack of 4K content,...

OnePlus is getting ready to launch a line of big screen televisions, and after a year of collecting feedback from its users, has decided on a name: OnePlus TV. The company decided to keep the branding simple, though the decision was "harder than you could imagine" due to receiving "so many creative names" since kicking off its TV naming competition. "Yes, we are going to call our very first smart TV product 'OnePlus TV'—simple yet to-the-point—as we believe there's no other name that can best represent our value, vision and pride than naming it with our own brand," a community consultant stated on the OnePlus forums. Source: OnePlus OnePlus also designed a logo, shown above. The logo... Read more...
Anyone who is in the market for a new TV will want to check out the deals going on a couple of smart TVs from TCL right now. The TCL 75-inch Class 4K Ultra HD Roku Smart LED TV 75S425 is on sale at Amazon for $799.99, a massive $200 off the normal $999.99 retail price of the TV. The catch is that Amazon is out of stock on the TV as of writing. However, the TV is likely to pop back up in stock so buyers wanting to order from Amazon should keep an eye on the official page for the TV here. An alternative location to purchase the 75-inch TCL 4K Roku Smart TV is via Walmart where the TV is offered for the same $799.99, $500 off the normal MSRP of the TV which is $1,299.  Anyone not happy with...

Samsung has announced that the biggest TV it has offered will go on sale starting next month. The TV is called The Wall Luxury, and it promises a new user interface and experience for users. The large TV has a customizable decor frame that enhances the display and ensures that it will fit in any space. The self-emitting diodes that the giant TV uses are good for up to 100,000 hours. Samsung also has a standard "The Wall" TV, and it is designed never to turn off. When the user isn't watching TV on the massive screen, which is configurable and customizable, it can display images. Ambient Mode is for when the TV isn't being used, and it can show a variety of curated art from paintings and video... Read more...
There has never been a better time to be in the market for a big screen TV. Whereas buying a sizeable television used to command top dollar, costs have come down considerably over the years, to the point where a few hundred bucks gets you a 4K TV with HDR support. Proof of this exists in Vizio's new V-Series 50-inch class (49.5-inch diagonal) Smart TV, which is available for just $319 on Amazon right now. The V-Series is the most affordable line among Vizio's new 2019 4K HDR Smart TV collection, which it just announced yesterday. For those who have more coin to spend, the lineup also entails new M-Series and P-Series additions. Make no mistake, though, the V-Series is not an afterthought among... Read more...
Placing an order on-line, and receiving the wrong item, can be annoying. It's also irritating when things that we didn't even order in the first place end up at our home. A man called Nick Memmo from Freetown, Mass. knows this all too well; he ordered a 75-inch TV on Amazon, and when Amazon's delivery service contractor dropped it off, they also delivered a larger LG 84-inch TV at the same time. And that second mis-delivered TV landed Memmo in hot water with the police. Because Memmo held onto the set and was coy about it, he was charged and arrested for larceny and for misleading a police officer. Officers executed a search of the man's home after their initial contact and found the 84-inch... Read more...
Movie, TV, and gaming fans are often after the biggest screen they can cram into their living room or bedroom. The catch is that massive screen sizes are often very expensive. TCL has been offering some smoking good deals on big TVs with support for 4K HDR content and Roku streaming built in over the last few months. Before the Super Bowl earlier this month Amazon had some TCL TVs on sale for excellent prices. The TCL 65-inch 65S517 TV that was on sale before the Super Bowl for right at $694 is on sale with an even bigger discount currently. You can get that same TV for just under $650 with free Prime shipping right now. The 55-inch version of that TV that was $449.99 is still available right... Read more...
Earlier this week, Samsung announced their new 2019 lineup of 4K and 8K televisions using a display technology they call QLED. The term QLED looks suspiciously like OLED, but do the two technologies actually have much in common? After fielding a few questions about this on our website and social media, we want to clear up any confusion between them and expound on what to expect in terms of picture quality from each. We will start at the beginning with a basic LED LCD display. Virtually everyone has encountered one of these displays at some point in their life as they make up the majority of the market. These use a white LED backlight to shine through tiny red, green, and blue filters to create... Read more...
