Falling prices for multi-gig (2.5/5/10GbE) equipment make upgrading your network to a faster standard very affordable.
Hisense's H9G 4K UHD TV offers an excellent picture for the price. It's available only in 55-inch and 65-inch flavors, but if that's what you're shopping for, it should be on your short-list.
With thousands of mini LEDs forming its backlight array, TCL's 8 series delivers outstanding black without the usual artifacts. It's the first LCD TV we've seen that rivals OLED for picture richness.
QNAP's handsome NAS box offers dual 2.5GbE ports and a PCIe slot for adding 10GbE, SSDs, or both. It can also play multimedia directly to an attached 4K display.
The AS5202T's dual 2.5GbE performance and agile interface make it a real competitor for the title of best home NAS box.
The Tribit XFree Go headphones punch far above their weight, sonically: sadly, the controls locked up after an hour or so of sustained use.
This oversized Bluetooth speaker not only pumps the volume and the bass, it delivers a light show and syncs with other Soundcore speakers, too.
Samsung's Q90T is a minor but welcome improvement over what was already one of the best 4K UHD LCD TVs on the market. The bigger news might be that Samsung has ditched the One Connect breakout box.
Aukey's SK-M30 Eclipse is an affordable and very attractive Bluetooth speaker. The sound doesn't quite live up to its looks, but it's very good for the price.
Sony's X800H offers a good image with outstanding motion compensation, though the lack of local dimming means weak blacks. But the overall experience is top-notch thanks to some sweet interface tweaks and a redesigned remote.
A surprising amount of sound and thump emanates from this palm-sized speaker, modeled after the Bose SoundLink Micro and JBL Clip.
Cyberlink's industry-leading PowerDVD 20 movie disc/video player adds cloud sharing and streaming to the mix. Not to mention a super-handy resume-from-last-position function.
If you appreciate volume, thump, and durability in a speaker, the Braven BVR-XXL/2 should be at the top of your short list. It's IPX5 rated, sounds good for the weatherized category, and even features a magnetic bottle opener.
Marshall's Tufton Bluetooth speaker certainly invokes the brand name, as well as delivering decent sound with a lot of thump, but the price is a bit steep and there's a caveat concerning stereo.
You'll get very good picture, Dolby Vision, and the excellent Roku OS, but you can forget about bringing your own Bluetooth speakers to the party.
