Streamers have been around for quite a few years. It took them quite a while to reach maturity. When this field was at its infancy, HD was just starting to get popular and Streamers offered a way to play back a DIVX or TS file without requiring a Home Theater PC in your living room. The beginning was very slow and tedious, early streamers were buggy and often had serious image, sound and build quality issues. Typically, you had to place your content in a hard drive inside the unit, or even burn a DVD containing your desired content - not exactly something that most people are prone to do.
Introduction to HDTV Reviews
The television has become a major appliance right along with the stove and refrigerator. When it comes time to upgrade, the choices can be daunting. Technology moves at warp speed and no one wants their new purchase to become obsolete overnight. We’re covering all the latest features like Ultra HD resolution, wide color gamuts like Rec.2020, HDR and smart TV. Many panels have built in software that streams content from the Internet (Smart TV) eliminating the need for cable service or even a Blu-ray player.
We run a battery of tests on each display that directly relate to visible differences in image quality. Our benchmarks include tests for contrast, color accuracy and video processing, with every result explained in terms you can see on-screen.
With the demise of plasma, our focus is on LCD and OLED displays. HDR and Ultra HD are technologies on the rise and we’re covering every new innovation with each review. Copy protection is another hot topic. Terms like HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 are now part of the language every new TV-buyer must learn. Our HD and Ultra HD TV reviews will help you make a purchase decision. Once you get that new panel home, we can help you set it up for maximum return on investment.
