What’s on Apple TV New:

The new Apple TV is not perfect. It costs more than comparable devices — always my main gripe about Apple products. It lets you play plenty of games, but titles and other things designed for phones and tablets aren’t necessarily as appealing on a big screen, and most work best with a third-party game controller. And it hear me that the Apple TV remote is so good, I’d have to keep it around in addition to my system-mastering Harmony rather than consigning it to a drawer like my other clickers.

Apple Tv 2015

 

Design and Features:

  1. The box itself is the same size (10cm by 10cm),  the current model at 33mm.
  2. there are most of color are Silver, Space Grey and Gold models, there’s just a black version.
  3. The new Apple TV is a 64-bit A8 chip.
  4. storage has been increased from the
    8GB in the 3rd-gen model to 32- or 64GB to make room for the apps that’ll be available from the dedicated App Store.
  5. On the back is a two-pin power connector as usual, an HDMI 1.4 output.
  6. A 10/100 Ethernet port if you don’t want to use 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and a USB type-C port for “service and support”.
  7. Right now, it’s 4K capable, but not 4K enabled. The lack of
    official 4K support will be enough to put some off ordering one.

New Features on Gaming:

Games and miscellaneous apps are neat, but most of the hours on the new Apple TV will be logged watching TV. And with the glaring exception of Amazon, the Apple TV is as good as any TV-based streamer for video app access.

Yes, you can use AirPlay from your iPad, iPhone or computer to watch Amazon or use other unsupported apps like Sling TV, Pandora and Spotify, but I’d much rather have a “native” app for those services.

Conclusion:

Among vehicles for streaming video, the Apple TV is easily the most luxurious you can buy today. It delivers Netflix, Hulu, HBO, Showtime and the rest with more refinement than any of its direct competitors. Its speed and fluidity, its slick remote and its superb voice (er, Siri) search and command are enough to make it a no-brainer upgrade from the old Apple TV for plenty of buyers, especially those with large collections of TV shows, movies and music on iTunes, not to mention games.

For the rest of us, it’s a tough call whether it’s worth the money to buy now. Roku offers a
better value today with its cheaper hardware, price-centric search and direct access to Amazon. The Amazon Fire TV has plenty of games, and the Nvidia Shield is arguably an even more powerful
gaming device with appeal to techy types. But none of those devices is as sleek and satisfying as
the new Apple TV, and none has the upside and potential of Apple’s development community.

Sony KDL75W850C, 65W850C Smart LED TV Review

Published

on

Top class TV’s if you are looking for so you choose the Sony KDL-65W850C (MSRP $1,899, online for $1,500) is a good place to start. This is Sony’s best-in-class 1080p (Full HD) model for 2015. You aren’t getting 4K resolution, but you are getting the best of Sony’s flagship-level software and polish.

You also get a Full HD (1080p) TV. While cable and satellite content is still playing catch-up from HD to Full HD. With only a little 4K content available between apps like Netflix and Amazon Instant, going 4K right now isn’t the most practical choice for most people.

The W850C is best prople like every bit as good as its 4K sibling, the X850C. We measured excellent contrast, accurate colors, and smooth motion. but the 75-inch option—currently $1,000 off its list price—is good deal if you’re looking to go really big this year.

Price Information:

Sony’s W850C series is available in two sizes
The W850C series is available in a 65-inch size (Sony KDL-65W850C, or Sony KDL65W850C) and a 75-inch size (Sony KDL-75W850C, or Sony KDL75W850C). The 65-inch retails for $1,899, but can be found online for about $1,500. The 75-inch retails for $2,999, but can be found online for about $1,999.

Both the model the design, to the ports, to the Android TV platform, both sizes of the W850C are essentially identical. Both feature 3D functionality, 120 Hz refresh rates, and Full HD (1080p) resolution.

Sony KDL-65W850C, KDL-75W850C TV Review .Design:

Sony TV os always make sample, but the W850C’s still got style.
The W850C model is Full HD TV for 2015, but it doesn’t go out of its way to be flashy.
It is a thin also metal body , color ful panel which is quite thin from edge-to-edge, and sports very slim bezels that place heavy emphasis on the screen. It’s design to be sure that it is a modern model.

 

Series Name W850C
General Type LED
Screen Size 75 in.
Screen Sizes in Series
  • 65
  • 75
Format 1080p
3D Capable Yes
Refresh Rate 120 Hz

Smart Features Yes

 

Hardware:

the TV’s on-set controls and AV ports. When you look for to get connected: four HDMI inputs, a full composite input, a shared component/composite input, and a coaxial jack for cable/antenna. For audio, you’ve got hybrid headphone/analog and digital audio outputs. There’s also a LAN (ethernet) port and two USB ports.

Lastone the TV and stand components, you’ll get the basic Sony remote control. You also get two AAA batteries. The remote should be familiar if you’ve used any Sony TVs in the past: it’s tall and narrow, with a full number-pad and lots of hotkeys. You won’t find one of the smaller, touchpad-centric smart remotes with the W850C like with Sony’s high-end 4K options, but one thing Android TV is easy enough that you won’t miss it.

The Verdict:

Lately but Sony’s W850C is proof that there’s still plenty of room for Full HD resolution. In fact, unless you absolutely need a 4K TV right now, the W850C might be the best-performing LCD set you can find in this price range.
There’s just so little 4k content out there; almost everything on Netflix is 1080p, there still aren’t any 4k Blu-ray discs on the market, and many cable broadcasts are still in 720p, with over-the-air 4K still a long ways off.
However, there are more affordable 65-inch options without all the bells and whistles. The Vizio 65-inch E Series and Sharp 65-inch LE653U can both be found for around $1,000 online.

And if you’re still sitting on the 4K fence, consider that while the 65-inch W850C may be only $750 less than Sony’s equally stellar X850C, the 75-inch W850C for $1,999 is an insanely good value—it’s half the price of its 4K cousin, but is fully equal in design, smart features, and overall picture quality.

SAMSUNG UN65JS9500 SUHD 4K ultra HD LED LCD Smart TV REVIEW

Published

on

SUHD TV OVERVIEW:

The Samsung JS9500 is the best-looking LED/LCD TV .In 2014, LCD TVs stepped into their
own. The best LCD TVs were better than ever. And if 2014 was a landmark year for LCD
TVs, 2015 will go down as the year 4K UHD came into its own.

When it comes to their new Samsung UE65JS9500 SUHD TV line, they’ve excelled at all of
the above and brought a truly terrific product to the market. The Samsung JS9500 uses
its SUHD title as a sort of acronym for the fact that the TV is one of the company’s
first to come with the innovative new technology of quantum dots. It’s also the first to
use the new Tizen-based OS and just one of a tiered lineup of new 4K UHD TVs from
Samsung that are hoping to revolutionize the overall market.Samsung visited recently to
show us their latest 4K Ultra HD TVs, and their flagship 65″ UN65JS9500 SUHD model
produced a picture as beautiful as any we’ve ever seen. The UN65JS9500 was placed side-
by-side with the same-sized non-SUHD model UN65JU7500. SUHD’s superior picture contrast
and black levels were immediately obvious, and the colors were deep and intense without
ever looking cartoonish. Now that 4K Ultra HD TVs put millions more pixels on our TV
screens, Samsung is finding innovative ways to make every pixel work smarter.

PRICING:

The Samsung UE65JS9500 SUHD TV is really a better TV even by 4K UHD TV standards and
thus it currently retails for a very hefty $5,997.99 on Amazon.com and at comparable
prices with other retailers.

Design:Samsung SUHD JS9500 Curved 4K ultra HD LED LCD Smart TV

The good features of the JS9500 comes with highly advanced visual technologies like
full-array LED backlighting, HDR and quantum dots, its LED screen is actually superior
to OLED in terms of luminance if not in maintaining truly black dark shades (the one
thing in which OLED outshines all the other 4K TVs on the market)
The JS9500’s 65 inch screen, coupled with an elegant sweeping design and modular
OneConnect box make for a truly lovely package that simply looks good in the living
room. Furthermore, that OneConnect box isn’t just a gimmicky accessory, because it’s
separate from the TV itself, it can be replaced as new connectivity systems for 4K TVs
are introduced down the road. Then, aside from being one of the most advanced 4K TVs on
the market, the JS9500 is also future-proofed .

Continuing with the range of visual technologies built into the JS9500, we also have the
fact that it comes with a 10-bit color LCD panel, direct LED backlighting (full array)
with full-array local dimming technology (FALD) and is equipped with HDR content
support.

Picture quality:

This last feature, the HDR compatibility, is crucial to anyone who truly wants a 4K UHD
TV that’s ready for the next generation of 4K ultra HD content. As entertainment
producers and streaming providers start releasing HDR programming over their digital
streams in the following months, the only TVs with the capacity to truly display it in
its exquisite levels of contrast will be those that are designed to handle HDR. The SUHD
JS9500 is currently one of only a few TVs going on sale now or very soon that is indeed
HDR compatible.

Finally, These include Comcast’s Xfinity 4K selection and M-Go’s small list of 4K
programming, also a part of its regular subscription service but only available to
Samsung 4K models it also good.

Features:

  1. Screen size: 65 diagonal inches.
  2. Smart TV: Full Smart.
  3. HEVC (H.265) Included: Yes.
  4. HDCP 2.2 Compliance: Yes.
  5. Refresh Rate: 240 CMR (Effective).
  6. Screen Lighting: full-array direct LED backlighting full-array local dimming
    technology.
  7. Resolution: 3,840 x 2,160 pixels UHD.
  8. Wireless Connectivity: Yes, includes WiFi, Blue Tooth, NFC and Ethernet port.
  9. Remotes: Samsung Smart Control (TM1560B).

  11. Sound: 60W (20W x 2, Woofer 10W x 2) Front Firing (4.2CH) speakers with Dolby
    MS11 and DTS Premium Sound 5.1.
  12. Dynamic Contrast Ratio: HDR, extremely high.
  13. Aspect Ratio: 16:9.
  14. TV weight with/without stand: 70.2 lbs/78.3 lbs.
  15. Dimensions: 57.1″ x 33″ x 4.9″ inches without stand; With stand: 57.1″ x 36.1″ x
    14.9″ inche.

Conclusion:

The JS9500 is a very good television design and engineering so Samsung’s best TV to date. The JS9500 will be on my list of the five best TVs introduced this year.
If you have the money to spend on it, the Samsung UE65JS9500 SUHD 4K TV is best 4K home entertainment option available on sale today. It’s your gateway to the next generation of 4K ultra HD content.

Panasonic TC-50CX600U 4K UHD LED TV Review And Spec

Published

on

The Panasonic TC-50CX600U (MSRP $999.99) is a 50-inch smart TV that’s ready to display a world of 4K content right out of the box. And although it
doesn’t quite reach the dizzying heights of last year’s AX900U, it’s still a heck of a bargain in a 4K TV market starved of bargains.

The Design:

Panasonic’s new TC-50CX600U 4K Ultra HD TV, a budget-friendly set from the storied TV maker that’s available in a 50-inch model. That’s the kind of
price you’d pay for a mid-tier 1080p HD TV just a year or two ago, and the CX600 comes loaded with Panasonic’s capable new Firefox smart interface.

Panasonic’s got a long track record of building sturdy-but-attractive TVs, and that trend will continue in 2015. Between the CX600U and the CX800U.
Around back you’ll find a cutout that houses just about every input you’ll ever need to revel in glorious, 4K content. All three of its HDMI ports
are HDCP 2.2-compliant and support 4K content at 60 Hz. If that wasn’t enough, one of the TV’s three USB ports is USB 3.0, which means that if
you’re so inclined, you’ll be able to enjoy 4K content from a USB device right out of the box.

Naturally, the CX600U also supports WiFi, should you decide that an ethernet cable is one cable too many parts.

Panasonic TC-CX600U Features:Panasonic TC-50CX600U Full review

The most affordable 4K UHD TVs in its class, Panasonic doesn’t skimp when it comes to inputs, loading the CX600 with a trio of HDMI 2.0a inputs,
including one with ARC for better communication with connected devices. All are equipped with the latest HDCP 2.2 protection and support 60Hz 4K UHD
content. Three USB inputs are carved into the side, including a single 3.0 input to allow for direct connection to a 4K UHD device. Other inputs RCA
input, an Ethernet port, and a optical digital audio jack.

Behind the screen, the TV boasts Panasonic’s Quad-Core Pro processing engine, supporting a 60Hz native LED LCD panel.But Panasonic does have one of
the least offensive motion processors on the market, and it’s offered here in strengths of weak, mid, and strong. Engaging the mildest setting
smooths with only a slight touch of the wrenching Soap Opera effect.
Panasonic’s Adaptive Backlight Control does attempt to aid in black levels. Those craving convincing contrast and richer black levels will have to
step up in price to one of Panasonic’s upper tier models, which can run you an extra grand or more.

Conclusion:

And for most people, a bright, vivid TV for watching cable, Netflix, and the occasional football game does the trick just fine. The CX600U does this, and you get lot of ultra-vivid colors. While not clinically accurate, that extra saturation will better hold up when it has to compete with loads of ambient light—something many higher-end TVs can’t do very well.

And for the CX600U’s asking price, it’s hard to be picky. You can find it on sale for just $999.99, which is well below average for a 50-inch UHD
TV. If you want a 4K TV that can handle movie night with a little more accuracy. we’d recommend either Vizio’s 2014 P Series or its 2015 M Series,both of which were good enough to take home our coveted Editors’ Choice award. The 50-inch M Series even retails for a whopping $200 less than the CX600U, even if it’s not quite as pretty as the Panasonic.
