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.
This second-generation speaker is smarter, more capable, and better-sounding than the model it replaces.
The Marseille mCable Cinema Edition is great for upscaling DVD, Blu-ray, and even TV, but we can't recommend it for 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray players because it doesn't support HDCP 2.2.
TaoTronics TT-BH060 headphones feature noise cancellation and a very comfortable design, as well as supporting Bluetooth 5.0. But the sound leans heavily towards the bottom end of the spectrum and lacks high-end brilliance.
Sony goes 8K UHD with its 98- and 85-inch Z9G models, and it revs its 4K UHD OLED TV from the A9F to the A9G
LG will ship its first 8K UHD OLED and LCD TVs in 2019, and nearly all will get a boost in processing power. Two-fold in some instances.
The weatherized Soundcast VG5 pumps out the bass that's so often lacking in outdoor speakers. But it's truly for outdoor or large spaces, not the average indoor space.
HighPoint's RocketStor 6661A Thunderbolt 3 PCIe/NVMe enclosure is a relatively affordable way to add super-fast storage to your system or laptop. Assuming, of course, you have a T3 port.
Sony's PSZ-RA4T is a rugged, attractive, and versatile RAID box with support for both Thunderbolt 2 and USB. It's equally at home in a mixed Mac/PC environment, the field, or the trunk of your car.
Sony's XBR65A9 65-inch 4K UHD OLED TV offers great color, excellent blacks, and wonderful HDR. It also offers the best sound in a flat-panel TV, bar none. The only problem is that there's a significantly cheaper, but highly worthy competitor in the LG's E8 series.
Kudos to Marley for using recycled materials in the No Bounds XL waterproof Bluetooth speaker. But its sounds mediocre at low volumes, and only average when you crank it.
Sony's XBR X900F can handle just about any kind of material with aplomb, including HDR. But its color palette is subdued and light bleed on black backgrounds is noticeable with the Xtended Dynamic Range function engaged.
It doesn't come with the One Connect breakout box you get with the Q9FN, but it offers nearly the same performance as higher-end model for $700 less.
Fluance's Ai40's are affordable Bluetooth bookshelf speakers that sound great thanks to subtle psychoacoustic tricks applied by a DSP.
