First look: Samsung Series 9 85-inch 4K UHD TV

The Video and Audio Center in Santa Monica (CA) has the distinction of being one of the few places where you can go and see HDTVs in an environment where there’s room for them, and you, to “breathe.” By that I mean the TVs are ...

First Look at Sony’s XBR-84X900 84-inch 4K Ultra HDTV at Santa Monica’s Video & Audio Center

Big is better, but it’s not about size this time, it’s about resolution.  Sony hosted an event at the Video & Audio Center in Santa Monica to present their XBR-84X900 84-inch 4K Ultra HDTV. The XBR-84X900 displays an image ...

VIZIO E320i 32” Smart LED TV Review

A TV doesn’t have to be huge to be worth watching. Case in point: VIZIO’s E320i 32” Smart LED TV. It’s bigger than a monitor at 32-inches, but sized small enough to fit in areas where a bigger screen would crowd out the surroun...

Sony Bravia HX750 46-inch Internet LED TV Review
