Xbox One S Review

Xbox One S Review

I've been using the Xbox One S for a while now, and it's become clear that Microsoft has a winner on its hands. Not just because the device is better than its predecessor - and less expensive. The Xbox One S is better than the Xbox One, the PS4, and the PS4 Pro, not least of all because it looks so extremely nice - even when it's modified to look like it's been attacked by wild animals.

PlayStation 4 Pro Review Part 1 – The Big 4K Question

PlayStation 4 Pro Review Part 1 – The Big 4K Question

It’s that time of year again, when gamers wait with bated breath for new treats to fill their holidays. But instead of new gen consoles to drool over or kill for, gamers will, instead, see a refinement. After all, why change a winning, not to mention very profitable, formula? Sony announced the PlayStation 4 Pro last September, and now we’re finally diving deep into what was formerly called the PlayStation Neo. And while we walk through everything that came in the box, as well as some that didn’t, we keep in mind the biggest question of all: is it worth the upgrade?

Sony Blu-ray Player, Home Theater Projector flaunt 4K HDR

Sony Blu-ray Player, Home Theater Projector flaunt 4K HDR

These days, 2K just ain’t enough. Unless you’re talking about smartphones. Heck, even plain 4K might not be! If TV makers are to be asked, 4K HDR is where it’s at, combining the promises of ultra high def resolutions with an ultra high gamut of colors. Of course, that works well for entertainment equipment manufacturers like Sony, who, coincidentally, just announced its first 4K UHD HDR Blu-ray Player, the X1000ES, as well as a brand new 4K UHD HDR Home Theater Projector, the VPL-VW675ES, both taking advantage of the slow but growing number of available 4K content, both on disk and on the Internet.

Bang & Olufsen BeoVision 14 gives Android TV some class

Bang & Olufsen BeoVision 14 gives Android TV some class

Bang & Olufsen is a name perhaps more known for its premium, which usually also means expensive, audio equipment. But audio is really just one step removed from video. In fact, B&O did have a line of TVs way back when, with the Avant being the last one we've seen. That is, until now. Fully jumping into the smart TV scene, the BeoVision 14 comes from two distinct B&O TVs, combining the intelligence of the BeoVision 11 and the odd mobility of the BeoVision Avant.

PlayStation Neo tipped to land this year to usher in 4K gaming

PlayStation Neo tipped to land this year to usher in 4K gaming

While Microsoft was only too happy to tease the E3 2016 crowd with its Project Scorpio console, noticeably missing from the showroom floor and news was the PlayStation Neo, a.k.a. the PlayStation 4.5. Even Nintendo name dropped its NX console in announcing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of Fresh Air the Wild. Apparently, there is a reason for that. According to insider sources, Sony's "and a half" console might actually launch later this year, so Sony is merely reserving the PR for when that happens.
