Bookmark Kinja Deals and follow us on Twitter and Facebook to never miss a deal. Best Tech Deals While it doesn’t have the best picture quality out there, it’s tough to complain about a 55" 4K TV for $300. It even has HDR, though with a distinct lack of specs on the page, I’m going to assume that’s not Dolby Vision. And while it doesn’t have apps onboard—pretty typical at this price level—it does have Chromecast built in, so you can stream video easily from your phone, which is very rare at this price. Anker’s premium nylon-wrapped Lighnting cables feel ridiculously nice in the hand, are way more durable than Apple’s first party cable, and … [Read more...] about Saturday’s Best Deals: Cheap 4K TV, Rice Maker, Labor Day Sales, and More

Samsung’s flagship Q9F QLED TV got the series off to a pretty dazzling start. But can QLED still make the grade on a much more affordable TV such as the Q8C?DesignDespite … [Read more...] about Samsung Q8C QLED TV (QE55Q8CAMT)
Philips opened its OLED TV account in impressive fashion a few months back with the 55POS901F. Given the success of that model, it was inevitable that Philips would look to follow it up with an OLED sequel. What we couldn’t have predicted, though, is just how good that sequel would turn out to be. [Update: When we initially reviewed this TV, we reviewed it under its original name, the 55POS9002. However, at a recent event, the TV had its name changed to the 55OLED873. Confusing though the name change may be, the TV has otherwise remained unchanged.

As if 3D TV and LED LCD vs. OLED vs. plasma and 120Hz and the Soap Opera Effect weren't confusing enough, in the last year we have seen the rise of a new HDTV technology called 4K. Or if you use its official name, Ultra High Definition (UHD). UHD is an "umbrella term" that encompasses higher resolutions (more pixels) than HDTV, as well as more realistic color and higher frame rates. Today and this year, pretty much the only one of those improvements available in new TVs and content is 4K resolution, so that's what we'll talk about here. Judging from the new TVs shown at CES 2014, manufacturers are tripping over themselves to bring you a new array of 4K compatible products.But just like 3D and HD before it, 4K has a case of putting the hardware chicken before the software egg. About 15 months after 4K TVs first appeared on the market , there's little consumer 4K content available: no TV channels or Blu-ray discs, just a few specialized video players, YouTube and other clips of varying … [Read more...] about What is 4K UHD?
