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.
This smart TV shines with HDR, but Vizio's new array backlighting is more prone to artifacts and there are holdover processing glitches from last year.
You'll pay extra for the branding, but this is a strong and well-designed speaker, even it it isn't built by the company famous for its "Marshall stack."
The H9E Plus is the most affordable 120Hz TV we've seen, and the extra 60Hz do make for about the smoothest motion in its class. But HDR still doesn't pop as with some similarly-priced models.
Samsung and LG both announced 8K TVs at IFA; Samsung the 85-inch Q900 with picture tweaks and a database of upscaling templates, and LG an 88-inch OLED
Caveats aside, if you want the fastest portable storage for your Thunderbolt 3 Mac, this is it. By a country mile.
