Welcome to the Autumn show with Hitachi for their full 3D Smart TV and next-generation HDTV lineup. This time they're coming in hard with a selection of televisions that are strongly considering blowing your socks off, all with a pointed suggestion that you buy a ROKU to go along with them (ROKU-ready streaming options they say.) This collection has both an ULTRAVISION UltraThin LED Series and a Value Series to speak of - going all out!
Just in time for the holiday shopping season, Vizio has announced its new lineup of HDTVs and audio equipment. More specifically, the company has officially announced the LED-lit2 E-Series line of HDTVs and four new sound bars. Included in the lineup is the recently-released E-Series 60-inch class Razor LED Smart TV.
LG has released the first 4K TV in the U.S., its 84-inch behemoth 84LM9600, which you can pick up for a cool $19,999. While Sony managed to get its 4K TV XBR-84X900 out on pre-order first, LG’s newest arrival is still the only ultra-high-definition unit that you can head out and purchase. The Sony 4K model is slated for shipment next month.
I love my televisions. One of them, a 55-inch set, sits in my living room, ready and willing to deliver all kinds of entertainment. Another set, a 42-inch model, is running in my bedroom for those times when I want to relax and catch up on some shows on my TiVo.
Recently, when I was watching a movie on the aforementioned 55-inch set in my living room, I got to thinking about screen size. On numerous occasions, people have come into my house, looked at the screen, and made some sort of laudatory statement about how “big” my television was. To them, the size, and not the fact that the set is extremely thin and delivers outstanding picture quality, was most impressive.
If you're a fan of the ultra-gigantic and super-high-definition television environment that exists amongst the super-rich, then you'll be glad to know that more 4G resolution televisions are on the way! While shipments of 4K LCD-TVs across the planet are only up to 4,000 units throughout 2012, they'll ramp up to 2.1 million units in 2017 - that accounting for less than 1 percent of all LCD shipments in both cases. All of this information and analysis comes from IHS iSuppli (now just IHS after iSuppli joined the team fully) and leads into the most important point here: the 4k television may only be a passing fad.
There's about to be a brand new smart TV in your living room with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, wireless streaming abilities, and no more than a $50 price tag, all of this in a tiny dongle: FAVI's Streaming Stick. This little device comes in white or in black - though it wont matter as it'll be plugged in to the back or the side of your television in your HDMI port the entire time its in operation. Plug it in to the HDMI port, plug a mini-USB cord into the side of the stick for power, and connect your wireless keyboard and mouse for next-level Android-based media engagement!
If you look on Amazon or head over to Best Buy, you’ll find a slew of televisions available. Better yet, you’ll find that many of them are discounted right now. Retailers realize that the summer is a tough time to sell televisions, and getting customers in the door with some deals is a great idea.
As enticing as it might be right now to buy a new television, you shouldn’t do so.
LG has priced up its vast 84-inch 4K TV, aiming to have the monstrous set in select stores come October. The huge new model - which delivers four times the resolution of a regular 1080p HD TV - will be priced at $19,999.99; that's expensive on the face of things, yes, but in the grand scheme of 4K TV it's something of a bargain.
Are you about to inherit a small fortune and have need of a much larger TV than the one you have now? You're in luck, because Sony will be opening up pre-orders for its massive 4K Bravia 84X900 TV tomorrow. The set was introduced at IFA 2012 last week, and we got to spend some hands-on time in the shadow of its ridiculously large 84-inch screen.
