Black Friday’s 4K smart TV dark horse is NVIDIA SHIELD TV

Black Friday’s 4K smart TV dark horse is NVIDIA SHIELD TV

Today the NVIDIA SHIELD TV was announced to have its price kicked temporarily in the bottom, just in time for Black Friday 2017. This is the device is easily my own top recommendation for smart TV central hub, and has been for the past two years, as well. While this machine is already a decent price without discount, here on Black Friday its cut down to the lowest price it's ever been (in its current form, with 3-free months of YouTube Red to boot.)

Hisense 4K Smart Laser TV is really a projector with speakers

Hisense group veep Dr. Lin says that it’s time to rethink the TV when the company announced its 100-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart Laser TV. And apparently, that means turning the TV into a not-TV. This latest model the manufacturer, based both in China and the US, boasts of many things that it can do better than LED and LCD TVs.

Run the Xperia XZ Premium in 4K all the time with this trick

Run the Xperia XZ Premium in 4K all the time with this trick

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is easily one of if not the most expensive flagships this year, at least for now. But if, for a moment, you ignore that price tag, you're actually left with a rather competitive high end smartphone with a very high-end screen. One of the very few, perhaps only two, 4K smartphone screens in the market. But for performance and battery life reasons, Sony doesn't make full use of that UHD screen all the time. But if you think it's well worth the consequences, you can easily force the Xperia XZ Premium to use that high density setting all the time with these relatively simple steps.

You can finally buy a $20K 77″ LG SIGNATURE 4K OLED TV W

Usually, it only takes a few months for a company to fully launch a new product after publicly announcing it. In LG's case, it took nearly half a year, but the wait may have been very well worth it. At least for those who could afford it. At CES last January, LG unveiled its new generation of "Signature" 4K OLED TVs and one in particular was obviously its star: the 77-inch LG SIGNATURE OLED TV W that is so thin and even slightly flexible that it looks like it's part of your wallpaper.

“Smurfs 2” is the first UHD Blu-Ray Disc to be pirated

“Smurfs 2” is the first UHD Blu-Ray Disc to be pirated

Smurfs 2 might not be a memorable film, but it would probably go down in history in a notorious way. And not through any fault of its own, mind you. Almost comically, the film will be remembered in the piracy scene as the first title to have an Ultra HD, some would (incorrectly) call it 4K, copy ripped from a supposedly tightly protected UHD Blu-Ray Disc. In other words, the age of UHD BR piracy might be at hand.
