Samsung QN75Q9F 2019 Review – 75 Inches of 4K Madness!

Today, I want to do kind of a quick review for you guys on the Samsung Q9F series TV. That’s the new one that just came out, the 2018 version that’s precisely the 75-inch version. I should mention too that I found a pretty good deal on this set, and I’ll throw a link in the description below so you guys can check that out. This is Samsung’s free top-of-the-line television. It’s the best one they make, their highest end one, and I couldn’t be more happy with it. I’ll tell you right now If you could go to the picture on this thing, it is stunning. It’s full 4K. It has their best HDR engine called the Elite Max, and you can tell the difference. The clarity and the vividness of the picture are mind-blowing. You have to see it to appreciate it, I guess. It has their ultra black elite technology, which is a fancy way of just saying it has a good contrast ratio, deep blacks, and it does. The depth between the fully lit pixel and the fully dark pixel is excellent in this set, some of the best I’ve ever seen, and it does have a 240 hertz panel, so, if you’re using it for sports or fast-moving things, you’ll see in clarity with no motion blur, and it does make a big difference going even from some of the older 120 hertz sets to the 240. Some people say, “Oh. Your eye can’t tell.”

Sony X690e Series Review – The Best Budget 4k LED TV

Today I want to do kind of a quick review for you guys on the Sony KD60X690E. That’s their 60-inch version of their 4K Ultra HD smart LED TVs. I should also mention too that I found a pretty good deal on it. And I’ll throw a link in the description below, so you guys can check that out. So, this is part of Sony’s X690E series. It’s pretty much there… I don’t want to say, as the bottom of the end line, but it’s their most affordable model of their 4K LED series. But in my opinion, it’s the best bang for your buck, definitely because you get most of the features that the much more expensive ones have in the X900s and the X800s and stuff like that. But you don’t pay near the premium for those things. Some people advertise that the other ones have better contrast ratios and stuff. But I’ll tell you, the contrast ratio on this is unbelievable. The blacks, the separation of colors is right on this set. If you’ve never had a 4K game before, you’ll be blown away the first time you watch Planet Earth II in 4K through your Netflix or something like that. It’s almost like you’re looking out a window at what’s going on. It’s that amazing. It doesn’t have the Triluminos Display like some of the more expensive models do. But when I checked them out, and they beat them, I could not tell the difference between

Sony XBR65X850E Review – The Perfect 4k LED TV

Today I want to do a quick review for you on the Sony XPR-4K LED TV, the model number is XBR65X850E. Now I should mention before we get started that I found a pretty good deal on this TV, and I’ll throw a link in the description below so you guys can check that deal out. So this is the latest 2017/2018 model of Sony’s higher-end 4K LED television set. It’s not an OLED, but you’re not going to have to worry about any types of burn-in or anything like that. OLED is a high technology, but there are some televisions out there that have burn-in issues on them, but LEDs, not a problem, and I’ll tell you right off the bat, the picture on this thing is nothing short of amazing. The XPR line from Sony has always been good, but in this 4K set, man, I tell you. It’s getting to the point where it’s like you’re looking out the window at whatever’s going on. Pretty impressive. Another thing I like about Sonys, and this one, in particular, is that the bezels on the TV are super, super slim. To me, that gives it a little extra pop. It just makes the TV look all that more premium, and when it’s hanging on your wall or your TV stand, it just seems like you have a nice television set there, and that’s always nice. The 120 hertz is good for sports; football, baseball, anything high motion, looks unbelievably

HT-S9800THX

Onkyo THX Certified 7.1-Channel Surround Sound Speaker System Black (HT-S9800THX) Review

This is a review for you on my Onkyo Home Theater in a Box System. The specific model on this one is HT-S9800THX. I should mention too that I found a pretty good deal on this, and I’ll throw a link in the description below, so you guys can check that out. I hadn’t seen too many reviews on this, and I thought I’d give my two cents from my own experience. I had spent much time researching home theater speakers, and I just wanted a pure home theater in a box that sounded good too. Many people were pointing me toward this Onkyo system. I’ll tell you right off the get go I love this thing. In my opinion, for the money, you couldn’t piece together a better audio system than this. For one, all the speakers are tuned to complement each other perfectly. It comes with an excellent receiver, which is essential because of a lot of the home theater box type systems. Moreover, I feel weird calling it a home theater in the box because it implies that it’s not a very good system like it’s a cheap one. Don’t think of it that way. Think of it as just a pre-configured system, I guess. However, anyway, the amp that it comes with is an Onkyo amp, and it’s perfect. It has the THX certification. It has Dolby Atmos and DTS, and it has Chrome Cast built right into it as well, which is cool. It supports

Sony KD55X720E Review

Sony KD55X720E Review – 4K Value Powerhouse!

Welcome to another review for you guys on the Sony 4K Smart LED TV. The model number is KD55X720E. Now, it’s a 2017 model and I know I’m doing this review in 2018, but they got some pretty good deals on these units, and I’ll put a link in the description below so you guys can check some of those deals out. So, in my opinion, with the deals they got on these right now, this is your best bang for the buck for a 4K TV. Not much has changed in the 2018 model, and these are discounted pretty heavily, and I like this set. I’m very impressed with the picture quality. The color accuracy is outstanding. It does support HDR so that it will work with your PlayStation or Xbox has HDR capabilities. It has excellent dark inky blacks. If you’ve never owned 4K set before, prepare to be blown away, honestly. It’s almost like going from standard definition to high-definition. I would recommend … put on Planet Earth II in 4K from Netflix on this thing, and prepare to be floored. It looks amazing. And, aside from the picture quality being, in my opinion, some of the best as far as panels go in the industry, there are a few things I also like about the Sony set. For one, the remote has quick access buttons for YouTube and Netflix, which is so handy. It’s something you don’t think about, you push the button, and you can

LG OLED65E8PUA Review

LG OLED65E8PUA Review 2018 – The NEW King Of 4k OLED For 2018

Here’s a review for you on the new 2018 model of LG’s OLED TV. The model number for this line is E8PUA. It comes in a 55″ version and a 65″ version. The 65’s the one that I’m reviewing. I hadn’t seen too many reviews on it. It’s very new. I would give my two cents on it from my own experience. I should mention, too, that I found a pretty good deal on it. I’ll throw a link in the description below so you guys can check that out. Anyway, if, in my opinion, you’re looking for the best 4K OLED TV on the market right now, this is the one to get. The 65″ picture is big, but with a 4K, remember, you want to go as big as you can because there’s no point in getting a small TV with a 4K if you’re sitting anywhere further than about 10 feet away. Because you really, your eye won’t notice the difference in the detail. The OLED picture is just stunning. It looks like you’re almost looking out the window at what’s happening on the image. It’s so clear. It almost seems like it’s in 3D. The color is very vivid. It’s excellent on this television set. The blacks are intense. It has a high dynamic range on it, and it looks good. Since it’s an OLED panel, of course, the blacks look very good just because you can turn the pixel off, so it’s not displaying any

Bose Acoustimass 10 Series V Review

Bose Acoustimass 10 Series V Review – You Can’t Beat It For The Money

Everybody knows Bose, and I’m sure you’ve seen the Acoustimass speaker system before in stores. They like to demo them pretty much everywhere you go. But I would give my two cents on the 10 Series as it’s by far the most popular selling unit, and my favorite, as far as any home theater system goes, for movie watching especially. The Bose Acoustimass hasn’t changed all that much in the last 10, 20 years. They’ve made minor improvements to it, but the reason being is it’s trendy and it sounds perfect. Bose figured out long ago that people love big explosions and high pitched things. If you want clarity, high-end treble and bass, the Acoustimass is perfect for that. It’s compact. It’s small. It’s minimal. It goes anywhere kind of thing. It’s not so intrusive as a lot of these systems are. And it just looks nice, and it sounds excellent. I will say the sound engineers at Bose do know their stuff. I’m so happy with how the Acoustimass Series sounds. It’s nice. I would say while this works good for music, surprisingly good actually. You can get some very decent sounding mid-range, it’s more tailored for people who are watching movies, action movies especially. But speech sound’s exceptionally clear as well. Any movie, but explosions sound unbelievably good on the subwoofer. The subwoofer will shake your entire room. It’s good. And because of the size of the speakers, gunshots, things like that sound ultra crisp, ultra clear. It

Bose Lifestyle 650 Review

Bose Lifestyle 650 Review – Can This System Convert Me To Bose?

This is Bose’ absolute top of the line surround sound system they sell, and it is a little pricey, but I should mention though I found a pretty good deal on it, and I’ll put a link in the description below so you guys can check that out. So this is the all-in-one 5.1 system, it comes with the receiver, remote, speakers, everything you need right out of the box. It can stream right from Alexa if you have Amazon, it can hook up through your Google, it can hook up through your Firesticks, all sorts of things like that. But really, that’s a side thing. The most important thing is the sound. Now, let me caveat this by saying I’ve never really been a home-theater-in-a-box … or I’ve always bought separate speakers, pieced together systems piece by piece, and I’ve never been necessarily into this kind of all-in-one type systems. But I’ll tell you right off the get-go, I was blown away by this Bose thing. It, in my opinion … And I wasn’t sure if it could justify the price because you can put together a pretty decent system for this price. But honestly, now I’ve been listening to this, I don’t think you can. Just to be honest, I don’t think you can … It sounds good, especially for movies. Bose, love them or hate them, they make some right sounding equipment. They know acoustics. Part of the problem with piecing together systems is your room acoustics

Fitbit Aria 2

Fitbit Aria 2 Review – Finally A Good Fat % Scale!

If you’re familiar with the whole Fitbit ecosystem, then this will be kind of a usual scale to you. I hadn’t seen all that many reviews on this one, so I thought I’d give you guys my two cents based on my experience and let you know what I thought about it. Should mention too that I found a pretty good deal on it, and I’ll put a link below in the description for you guys so you guys can check that out. Okay, so first of all, if you want kind of the short version of this review, I did a lot of research on smart scales, and this is the one to get in my opinion. It works the best; it measures the things that you need to measure in the most accurate sense. Out of all the ones I’ve tested and tried, this is the one I like the most by far. Fitbit has done a good job. I don’t know if it’s because they have used the technology in their smart watches and smart exercise bracelets for a long time, it’s the same kind of technology they put into the scale. But what does this thing measure? It measures your weight, it measures your body fat percentage, it measures your lean mass, and it measures your BMI. Those are pretty much the four most important things to measure when you’re using a smart scale. Now, the body fat percentage is always the hardest thing for scales

EZVIZ 4K UltraHD 8MP Outdoor IP PoE Surveillance System, 8 Channel, 4 Weatherproof UHD EXIR Security Cameras

EZVIZ 4K UltraHD 8MP Outdoor IP PoE Surveillance System Review

After doing quite a bit of research, I found this is the best 4K weatherproof outdoor security camera system you can get out there for the money. There are some $2,000 or $3,000 systems out there that may be just a hair better, but honestly, this one for the price for a full 4K Ultra HD system, you can’t beat it. For one … I should mention actually too that I found a pretty good deal on it, and I put a link in the description for you guys. You guys can check that out. But the first thing to talk about is the video quality, 4K unbelievably good video quality. Very, very impressed with that. The nice thing about it is the resolution is so high that you can capture the small details on people’s faces, license plates and stuff like that. The critical information that you kind of miss with some 720 and even 1080 cameras. The other nice feature about this thing is it has a single cable that runs to it. Both the power and your data is transmitted through a single network cable, so all you need to run is your network cables to where it’s going. You don’t need to run separate power, which is handy. The cameras themselves are fully metal, and they’re IP67 certified, which means they can be submerged in water completely. They’re entirely sand and dust, dirt resistant to the point where basically, it’s about the highest rating you can
