If a desktop PC is more up to your speed, the Dell... 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...
You do not need to wait until Black Friday to snag a sweet tech deal. A number of devices are on sale during the Sam’s Club Super November Event. You will even be able to nab some devices for $500 USD off of their regular price. This may be a good time to purchase a smart TV. The Samsung 82" Class 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV with HDR is currently available for $500 off its original price of $2,479.00. You can grab the Vizio 80" Class XLED 4K Home Theater Display and Vizio 36" 5.1.2 Home Theater Sound System with Dolby Atmos for $1,999. This is a particularly good deal because just the television alone will run you nearly $2,300 from other retailers. A number of less expensive smart TVs like... Read more...
Vizio is one of the more popular smart TV makers in the U.S. thanks in part to decent specs and low prices. However, the TV maker found itself in hot water with the FTC in early 2017 over the practice of collecting TV user viewing data without the express permission of the users. While this happened over a year ago, there are still likely some Vizio TV owners out there who have no idea that their watching habits were monitored. That will soon change with Vizio rolling out notifications to affected users via their TVs directly. Last week attorneys working on the case against Vizio asked the judge overseeing the proceedings to extend the time to submit a motion for preliminary settlement. That... Read more...
Vizio has agreed to pay a $2.2 million fine after the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and New Jersey Attorney General busted the company for using its internet-connected Smart TVs to automatically track the viewing habits of 11 million customers on a continual basis. The information gleaned from customers was then beamed back to the company’s servers without consent. In addition, Vizio was found to be collecting IP addresses, and then sharing that information with data aggregators in order to match the address with a particular household. “Vizio’s contracts with third parties prohibited the re-identification of consumers and households by name, but allowed a host of other personal details – for...

Vizio is looking to change the way we interact with our TV and it is doing so thanks to a little bit of help from tech giant Google. The new P-Series TVs have Google Cast built right into the TV, which right away signals that this is a different “smart” TV experience. P-Series TVs as a result don’t have built-in media apps like Netflix or Amazon Video that you typically find with smart TVs, and instead rely on your smartphone or tablet to cast relevant content. And since casting is such a big part of this new TV experience, the P-Series TVs ditch the traditional remote control in favor of Vizio’s own 6-inch, 1080p Android Lollipop tablet with 16GB of onboard storage. Not much else has been shared... Read more...
Content creators are quickly running out of excuses for not taking advantage of 4K Ultra HD resolutions. That's because the transition from Full HD 1080p to 4K Ultra HD is taking place faster than anyone expected, and it's due to hardware makers taking the initiative rather than waiting on content creators to force their hands. Not only are we seeing more and more 4K TVs, we're starting to see affordable models, like Vizio's new P Series starting at $999. Sure, dropping a grand on a television isn't chump change, but comparatively speaking, that's not bad for a big screen TV, especially one that supports a 4K resolution. In this case, that buys you Vizio's 50-inch P-Series TV with a 4K panel,... Read more...
Vizio is voluntarily recalling around 245,000 E-Series 39-inch and 42-inch LED-backlit televisions due to a defect in the stand assembly. If left unfixed, the defective stand could potentially fail and cause the television to tip over unexpectedly, which would not be a happy sight after plunking down a chunk of change for a flat screen TV. It also poses a risk of impact injury to anyone who happens to be around the television, especially small children and babies wandering around the area. At present, Vizio has received over 50 reports of its recalled televisions tipping over, though no injuries have occurred that the company knows of. Affected models were sold at Best Buy, Meijer, Target, Walmart,... Read more...
There are two main barriers to the transition to 4K Ultra HD (UHD). One is a lack of content, and that's being worked on by companies like Amazon and Netflix. The second is price, or at least it's supposed to be. One thing we're seeing at CES this year is an aggressive attempt by companies to push out 4K Ultra HD hardware without egregious pricing premiums attached. On the PC side, ASUS announced a 28-inch 4K monitor for $799, and on the home entertainment side, Vizio unveiled a lineup of 4K Ultra HD smart TVs starting at $999. These aren't gimped TV sets, either. Vizio's P-Series sport LED backlighting with advanced local dimming technology and 64 active LED zones, HEVC H.265 codec for Ultra... Read more...
After all of these years, Vizio's still cranking out low-cost HDTVs. But these days, quality seems to be higher on the priority list. The company's new M-Series is a cut above some of the older models, rivaling flagship sets from LG, Sharp, Sony and Toshiba. This week, pricing and availability details were launched for that range, which includes the Razor LED Smart TV models. These guys have an exceptional design, with practically no bezel to speak of and impressive specifications to boot. The signature M-Series design is available in a full range of screen size classes including 32" (M321i), 40" (M401i), 47" (M471i), 50" (M501d), 55" (M551d), 60" (M601d), 65" (M651d), 70" (M701d) and 80" (M801d)....

At this point, CES 2013 feels like it was eons ago. But in fact, it was but a few months ago that the technology universe descended upon Las Vegas, and Vizio decided to showcase a few new touch-enabled PCs for the first time. Now, those very machines are ready for shipment, if you've got the coin to snag one. The company's Spring 2013 Windows 8 line-up is finally rolling off of the production line, with a spate of notebooks and a trio of all-in-one desktops taking center stage. Offering the top-of-the-line quad-core processors from both AMD (A10 APU) and Intel (Core i7), the Touch PC line is fronted by the 15.6" Full HD model (starting at $1,189.99) and 14" HD+ (starting at $1,089.99) laptop....

It has been a rough few years for AMD. The company has found itself increasingly behind the eight ball and outmaneuvered, thanks to strong competition from Intel and less-than-stellar performance with recent releases of their A series integrated APUs. At a press event yesterday at CES 2013,  the Sunnyvale-based company focused on demonstrating new product wins and continued execution of its own APU roadmap. New devices shipping soon are courtesy of partnerships Asus, HP, and Vizio. AMD and Vizio announced an expansive partnership, with multiple Vizio systems on display including a new AIO (all-in-one) and ultra-thin notebook design. AMD also showcased their Kabini APU performance against... Read more...

The first two companies are familiar names, but Vizio has focused on HDTVs and other consumer electronics up... Read more...
