QNAP's TS-251A NAS has the ability to output video directly to an external 1080 display and is a great media streamer. The advertised on-the-fly 4K transcoding, on the other hand, proved to be weak.
Seagate's Personal Cloud 3TB NAS is only a single-bay NAS, but $140 for 3TB of storage and advanced software features is a steal.
For a NAS box with a boatload of software features and top-notch performance, the WD My Cloud EX2 Ultra is amazingly affordable.
Synology's DS216play NAS is a middling performer, but there's no better NAS box available for media streaming and 4K transcoding.
With a boatload of pro features and excellent performance, this is a box better suited for the small office than the home, but it streams as smoothly as any of its rivals.
TerraMaster's FS-220 is relatively new to the NAS category, but it's a great performer with a promising interface.
Zyxel's NAS520 is an affordable NAS box with good streaming and backup features, but it's a bit less refined than mainstream users would want.
Cobra's CDR895D Drive HD is a dual-channel dash cam with near 360-degree coverage and a surprisingly affordable price.
Thinkware's F770 is unique for shifting its video viewing and settings largely to your smartphone. For the price, it offers the full list of features and is easy to use.
Garmin's DriveAssist 50LMT is really a high-end navigation accessory with dash-cam features, and it offers many nice perks—plus a puzzling limitation.
The Viofo A119 is an incredible bargain: just $100 for a simple dash cam including GPS, with high-quality daytime and nighttime video and other handy features. It asks only that you bring your own storage card.
With Philips incorporating Dolby Vision support into its 2017 TVs and 4K UHD Blu-ray players, the HDR tech scores another big win.
The LG UP970 is the second Ultra HD Blu-ray player to support Dolby Vision, following Oppo's UDP-203. However, it won't ship with the feature enabled.
Dolby Vision will be enhancing the HDR of Sony's new XBR-X930E and XBR-X940E TVs, and the new XBR-A1E series are OLED.
The only reliable way to enjoy 4K video at home is via an optical disc, and Panasonic is offering up three new Ultra Blu-ray players to oblige.
