Addressing TechHive's long-standing complaint about behemoth top-tier TVs, Samsung announced at CEDIA that its Neo QLED Q90A series will now be available in apartment-friendly sizes.
There are plenty of great smart TVs. Our guide cuts through the alphabet soup to tell everything you need to know to buy the one that's right for you.
Edifier's single-body stereo D12 Bluetooth speaker is handsome, sounds good, and is far more affordable than it looks.
Anker has delivered undeniably stylish headphones that also serve up very good sound and superior ANC at a decent price. With EQ, the sound is also very good.
This is the first Vizio 4K UHD TV we've tested whose video processing chops match, and in some cases, surpass those of the competition.
The SRS-XB13 personal Bluetooth speaker is good-looking and sounds very good for mono unit. It's also IP67 rated for resistance to water and dust.
This Bluetooth boomer easily passed muster in terms of volume and bass response to sonically compete with pricier competitors. It's small, easy to carry, and waterproof for the pool and beach.
Fluance's Ai61 (an update from the Ai60) deliver good sound, Bluetooth 5.0, and both analog and digital wired audio connections.
The Boombox portable Bluetooth speaker marries the famous JBL sound with a ton of volume and long run time.
Samsung's entry-level QLED is edge-lit, but still delivers a very bright and detailed image—albeit without the deeper blacks provided by the company's pricier array-lit and mini-LED QLEDs.
House of Marley's Positive Vibration XL ANC's offer very good sound and excellent noise cancellation. They're a major improvement over the previous generation.
The M-Series Quantum remains basically the same as it was in 2019: A good lower-mid-range TV. New for 2021: eARC support for uncompressed 7.1 surround sound, along with FreeSync and HDMI variable refresh rates.
Vizio makes incremental improvements to its smart TV lineup, beefing up processing power and offering FreeSync support and 120Hz refresh rates at the top end.
This entry-level 4K UHD TV has some positive attributes, including Vizio's excellent SmartCast user interface and an easy-to-use voice remote, but its image is mediocre at best.
The Enhanced Audio Return channel delivers higher-quality movie soundtracks and music, too—and you won't need a new cable. What's not to like?
