MOHU Leaf Plus HDTV Indoor Antenna Review

Death and taxes. Now add to that ever rising cable costs for just being able to get a television signal to your HDTV. There may be nothing you can do about the first two, but you can “cut” your cable addiction by finding anothe...

Galaxy Wireless HD Solution WDHI Stick Review

This is going to be one of the simplest reviews I’ll ever do -- and it’s even more astounding because of the level of the technology being put into effect. You’d think that wireless transmitting high-definition video (with mult...

Mitsubishi HC7800D DLP Projector Review

Having cut my teeth, as it were, on a Novabeam which, for all practical purposes was a front projector for the 1980’s -- I always turn to a projector with a sense of wonder and excitement. For those who need to know, a front pr...

Biscotti TV Phone Review

I remember hearing that video chat first appeared when AT&T made special phone booths in Disneyland available to use (as part of a promotion of course). But as far as regular television being part of video chatting, it’s be...

Sony BDP-S590 3D Blu-ray Disc Player Review

Blu-ray players have decreased in price to where getting a second one (or replacing one just a year or two old) is no longer a luxury. Sony led the way to affordable Blu-ray players early in the cycle with their PlayStation 3 -...

Harman Kardon SB 16 2.1-channel Active Sound Bar Speaker System Review

The first sound bar I ever encountered was, wait for it, a speaker that had been jury rigged to output the sound from a Zenith 19-inch TV. As you can imagine, the concept of speakers outputting the audio from your TV, be it a t...

LG 55LM6700 Cinema 3D Smart LED TV Review

Remember that term “xxx is the ‘new’ black?” Well, 55-inch is the new “standard” size for a flat-panel, at least if you want a big screen image that has enough real-estate to show 3D effects well. LG has more than their share o...

Actiontec MyWirelessTV Review

See the title above? It could just as easily be “How easy is this? -- because wireless transmission of video signals has never been simpler. For anyone who’s had to deal with early generations of video transmissions at home, My...

Sony BDP-S580 Blu-ray Disc Player Review

Blu-ray players used to be exorbitantly expensive -- my first was a PlayStation 3  because the price of the Blu-ray mechanism and a game console was actually more cost-effective than a Blu-ray player alone. But for most folks t...

Belkin ScreenCast AV 4 Review

I'll cut through the hype and say at the outset that a wireless video transmitter isn’t something everybody needs -- if your set-top box or Blu-ray player is on a shelf next to the HDTV, running a short HDMI cable takes care of...

Sony Playstation 3D Display Review

I’ve seen many TVs, but few have the simplicity, style, and dazzling high-quality picture as…a Playstation branded TV? Yes, you read that right. Not only is Sony’s first “for-gaming” TV crazy good, it’s an HD 3DTV for $500. I c...

Sony HMZ-T1 Personal 3D Viewer Review

The evolution of the TV might be ongoing, but one thing that’s constant is the desire for as big an image as possible. Granted that we’re all spoiled with our flat panels and front projection systems, compared to the days of th...
