Sony introduced us at the beginning of the year its new OLED TVs AF8 and XF90, two models with different technologies but an image quality focused on the most demanding public. The XF90 model adds a backlit LCD panel that we have already been able to analyze thoroughly. Now we have to check what the AF8 offers us, a 4K HDR TV with an OLED panel that launches a new range in the Sony catalog and is positioned as the most complete model next to the Sony A1, the company’s current flagship TV and with the that bears a great resemblance. » Read more
As every year, the CES (Consumer Electronics Show), which, as you know, is one of the most important consumer electronics fairs, was the “kick-off” of the new TV ranges for 2018 from the main manufacturers. At the beginning of January, during the celebration of the event, we knew what brands are going to offer us this year, but it is now when their new TVs are coming to stores, and therefore, when we can know their prices.
The range of options available to us today is, fortunately, very broad. Many manufacturers, such as LG, Sony or Panasonic, among others, have two well differentiated ranges: one with OLED panels and the other with LCD solutions and LED backlighting. The brand that has remained outside of OLED, and which seems to be focusing its attention in the medium term on MicroLED technology, is Samsung, which hopes to stand up to the OLED and LCD LED solutions of its competitors with its QLED televisions. » Read more
At the end of last year we had the opportunity to analyze one of the OLED TVs that we most wanted to put “eyes on”: the 55-inch version of the LG C7 family. The reason why we were initially struck by this television was not the possibility of accessing the image quality of an OLED panel model for a price that, without being a bargain at all, was reasonable and more competitive than habitual. After our tests our initial expectations were confirmed: the models of the C7 range had a great price / performance ratio.
With this precedent it is understandable that we have not missed the opportunity to analyze in depth one of the models of the C8 family, which, as you can guess, is the successor of the C7 range in the LG portfolio for 2018. Of course, this time the model that has made us LG is the 77-inch, identical to those of 55 and 65 inches, but with significantly larger dimensions, as expected due to the increase in the diagonal of your panel. The challenge that faces this TV is to show us if the C8 family has a cost / performance ratio as attractive as the C7 range we tested last year. We suggest you continue reading and find out together. » Read more
The old “silly box” has evolved a lot in recent years, becoming one of the devices with more technology integrated under its housing that we can have in our rooms. It is precisely this complexity that prevents us from knowing everything they are capable of offering and even puts obstacles in the way of deciding to buy our ideal model, making us doubt about what functionality we need.
Is it better to have a flat or curved TV, with 3D or without 3D, with LED or OLED panel, will I take advantage of 4K or better Full HD? If these questions are around your head and you are thinking about buying new TV, keep reading and clarify your doubts once and for all. » Read more
A few days ago we knew the official sale prices of the new range of Sony LCD-LED TVs for this 2018, the XF90 and XF85 models, with a zone lighting system FALD in the case of the XF90 that promises to keep the good impressions left by last year’s model. » Read more
OLED panel technology has already been in the high range of TVs for several years at prices that are not available to all consumers. However, as in almost every technological cycle there comes a time when mass production and competition help lower costs and 2018 points in this direction. » Read more
The OLED is fashionable! A type of panel that is no longer exclusive to LG’s Korean TV sets and offers a number of advantages (and also disadvantages) compared to the models that have dominated the market so far, LED models. A batch of televisions that with the design by flag, arrive at the market from the hand of great manufacturers.
We are well with proposals from Sony, Philips, Panasonic, Loewe, Bang & Olufsen … and yes, you will notice that Samsung is missing, but is that the Asian giant has chosen to choose their own way with the QLED technology of their new models. But back to the new releases, let’s see some of the most interesting we’ve seen this 2017, especially now that shopping dates are approaching and Black Friday is already looming on the horizon. » Read more
Buying a new TV is not something we should take lightly. Usually it usually represents an important expense for the domestic economy and the device, as a rule, will have to last a few years maintaining its functionality. A couple of decades ago this last point was not very problematic, since the technological changes produced each year were minimal.
However, at present, every few months we are witnessing new advances that make the wonders previously announced obsolete. How to buy a TV that is not outdated in a short time? What do I have to fix? What characteristics does it have to have for me to last a few years?
These are difficult questions to answer given the tremendous changes in services and features, especially now that we are at the turning point of various technologies. However, we can reflect on several key aspects that we must consider well before commissioning our new model. » Read more
We have already seen over the last two years how some television manufacturers traditionally linked to the Asian market want to make the leap to the West to settle permanently in the United States and Europe. TCL is one of these companies that have clearly shown their interest in our market by offering very competitive prices and large models that would normally be far from the average consumer. » Read more
At the Philips 901F we met in September, then we learned that it was going to be the first OLED TV of the firm, and that would come very well armed: the operating system chosen for the occasion would be Android TV, and they would not forget a Of the star characteristics of the house, the Ambilight lighting system (on three levels).
The ingredients are very interesting, promising, as we expand a few lines later, but what is news today is that it goes on sale in less than two months – at the end comes later than expected. » Read more
