Belkin G1V1000 @TV Plus Review

 Some reviews are difficult not because of the technology discussed, but because the purpose of that technology doesn’t come across as having any value. We can all say that TV has its good moments amidst the bad -- and that’s w...

Sceptre E465BV-FHDD 46-inch 3D LED HDTV Review

There was a time when you could only get a quality HDTV from a brand name. Add to that was size -- those manufacturers striving to equal the quality of the “brand” didn’t try and get too big for their britches...make that for t...

SunBriteTV Model 3260HD All-Weather Outdoor LCD Television Review

Drive-ins were all about the fun of watching anything outside -- how else to explain the worst films you ever saw attracting teenagers back in the day (my day, that is). But taking a TV into the backyard is madness -- not just ...

Slingbox PRO-HD Review

It’s a given that a mobile device is carrying around video content -- smartphones and tablets aren’t “glorified” MP3 players, after all. But there seems to be a disconnect between the content you can view in your home -- i.e., ...

Toshiba BDX5300 3D Blu-ray Player With Built-in Wi-Fi Review

Business decisions are funny things. Take Toshiba for instance, they put all their eggs in the basket of the HD DVD format when it first went head to head against Blu-ray. Things went bad for HD DVD -- you see them around anywh...

ViewSonic VT2430 24-inch 1080p LCD TV Review

Say the name “Viewsonic” to most people, and they’ll likely respond with some variation of “they make monitors.” That the company also makes HDTVs, not so much. But the technologies that make for a quality LCD monitor can certa...

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 -...

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...
