CES 2018 – Skyworth

This isn’t the first time I’ve run across Skyworth at CES, but it is the first time I’ve noticed an OLED display in their booth. Like everyone else, the panels are sourced from LG, so that’s not particularly interesting. What is quite engaging however is the expected price point of the displays when they come to the US later this […]

LG UP970 reviewed @ HTR

As someone in the market for a UHD Blu-ray player, this review is quite timely. As one of the only players that supports (cough, will support) Dolby Vision (OPPO’s will as well) it piques my interest. Just not sure that for the same $, Dolby Vision is enough of a bonus compared to the extras I would net from the […]

Valens and Lattice Semiconductor deliver HDBaseT 4K 60Hz 4:4:4 reference design

Reference designs aren’t intrinsically news, but since they are an essential tool to enable product flexibilty (i.e. smaller OEMs can play too). I think it’s worth highlighting this announcement. Afterall, who doesn’t want to see a plethera of 4K 60Hz 4:4:4 devices; creating a more competative market :).   Valens and Lattice Semiconductor Partner to Deliver HDBaseT Reference Design to […]

Vizio P65-C1 reviewed @ RHT

If I’m honest, I wasn’t expecting much when I clicked through to look RHT’s review of the Vizio P65-C1. While scanning through I ran across this “…the Vizio P65-C1 provided the best non-OLED performance I saw this year”. Naturally, this required a more thorough read and I must that it impresses most of the way throughout. Quite a lot of […]

Faux K (I love that name)

It’s possible that I’m just posting this link because I love the name “Faux K” (who doesn’t like a good pun?) to describe those fake 4K projectors that have been cropping up lately. Everytime I see one, I get interested (mostly because they are cheap, for what they’re claiming), only to be disappointed by the spec sheet. Understandably Sony, who […]

HDR Roku on the horizon

As is typical for this sort of news, Zatz Not Funny! has the skinny on a new crop of Rokus queuing for release. While I’ve lost most of my love for our Roku 2 since testing started on the NIVIDA Shield, I think it remains the best general purpose media streamer for most people – and the price should be […]

LG E6 OLED reviewed at HDTVtest

LG’s OLED display continue to review very well, with some improvements from previous years. It’s actually this reasonably rapid improvement that makes me hesitate the most when it comes to picking up an OLED display. The sweet spot within LG’s 2016 OLED television lineup is undoubtedly the E6 series: it’s less expensive than the flagship “Signature” G6 series, yet offers […]
