LG OLED TV Dolby Vision 4K 120Hz update takes aim at gamers

LG OLED TV Dolby Vision 4K 120Hz update takes aim at gamers

OLED displays have been praised for their power-efficiency and deeper blacks, but LCD technology used to have one important advantage, at least for a short while. Until recently, only LCD screens could boast of refresh rates that went higher than 60Hz, let alone 120Hz or more. OLEDs, however, are catching up and it's not unusual nowadays to hear of phones and TVs with OLED screens with high refresh rates. Proof of that is LG's latest update to its top-of-the-line OLED TVs that are getting three of the biggest buzzwords in the industry: Dolby Vision, 4K, and 120Hz.

Vizio M-Series 5.1 Soundbar review: Good sound at a solid price

Vizio M-Series 5.1 Soundbar review: Good sound at a solid price

I don’t think it’s controversial to say that watching movies at home can be something of a nightmare when it comes to audio. Back when I was using only my TV speakers, it always seemed like the audio balance was very off - scenes that were primarily dialogue would be whisper quiet while action scenes would be blaringly loud. So, I set out to fix that issue by getting myself a soundbar, which did help quite a bit but didn’t solve it entirely. The quest to fix this issue permanently seems to lie with multi-speaker/surround sound setups, so I was hopeful that Vizio’s new M-Series 5.1 Home Theater Soundbar would do the trick.
