Amazon Fire TV Review

April 15th, 2014 · 2 Comments · Digital Media Receivers, Product Reviews, Review, Streaming Services

This is one of those products that is so logical for the company to have, it’s kinda a shock they didn’t have it already. It’s like if McDonalds announced a quadruple cheeseburger: a logical expansion of their offerings that fits right in with everything else. So the Fire TV, Amazon’s Apple TV, is not surprising, […]

Being an early adopter of new technology earns you bragging rights, but it can also mean a future trip to the e-waste recycling center when the cool new thing you’ve invested in turns out to be little more than an expensive doorstop. Case in point: When the HD-DVD format was introduced, I paid way too […]

There’s a cool new trick possible with a growing number of products: the ability to wirelessly send what’s on your mobile device (or computer) up onto your TV. Apple’s had this for a while with their products, and now Google, Amazon, and others are getting into the act. It’s a feature that’s still in its […]

Samsung HW-F850 Soundbar Review

December 16th, 2013 · 3 Comments · Audio, Product Reviews, Review, Sound Bars, Surround Sound, Wireless Audio

  It’s reasonable to expect perfection from a soundbar that sells for $1,000. That’s the price Samsung charges for its HW-F850 , and while we’re not saying the sound is perfect, it is rather engaging.

The year 2013 has been a time of triumph—and some trouble—for the TV industry. Triumph number one: the introduction of bigscreen OLED HDTVs from Samsung and LG that readily deliver on that technology’s picture quality promise (though both manufacturers threw us a curveball by making the set’s screens curved). 2013 has also seen the introduction […]
