Diamond Multimedia VideoStream (WPCTVPRO)
     Wed, Apr 10 2013 | 9:33A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Diamond VideoStream WPCTVPRO is a new device to help you setup a dual-monitor without a long wire connected to your PC. Using DisplayLink technology, the device communicates to your secondary monitor (TV for example) wirelessly through Ultra Wide Band (UWB). How does it perform? Does it live up to its promise? Lets find out."

Skyfall (2012) Blu-ray Movie Review
     Sun, Apr 07 2013 | 4:01P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I can do more damage on my laptop, sitting in my pajamas, before my first cup of Earl Grey than you can do a year in the field."

PIVOS XIOS DS Media Play Review
     Thu, Apr 04 2013 | 9:05A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The XIOS DS Media Play looks sleek and has a very small footprint but packs some interesting features. The Android OS will bring new life to your TV and the thousands available apps in the Google Play Store translate into an impressive potential of fun, productivity, and entertainment. The box provides a great experience as is but PIVOS went the extra mile and collaborated with the XBMC Media Center development team to bring the software with hardware decoding to the Android OS. Add the connectivity capabilities of the unit and we have a serious threat to those fancy HTPC systems at a mere asking price of $115. Built around the ARM CORTEX-A9 CPU and a MALI-400 MP GPU, the XIOS DS Media Play has what it takes to satisfy the needs of the majority of media lovers."

WD TV Play Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Mar 29 2013 | 10:19A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Western Digital`s latest media hub, the WD TV Play, tries to strike a balance for cord-cutters, offering some streaming services along with local file playback for a lower price than its Roku 2 XD and Apple TV competitors. But as a cord-cutter myself, I found that the WD TV Play doesn`t offer quite enough of anything, so I`d suggest that you pay a little more for your set-top box."

Pivos XIOS DS Media Play Android Smart TV Box - BCCHardware
     Thu, Mar 28 2013 | 9:37A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The XIOS DS is a simple, little Android box that hooks up to your TV by HDMI and brings the Smart to any TV. What I found tantalizing with the DS Media Play is the number of USB ports on the device as well as the XBMC support. It comes with a customized version of the software that allows for hardware decoding of media and provides a much smoother user experience than other software-only solutions that are readily available on the market. . ."

Roku 3 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Mar 25 2013 | 10:06A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Roku is a pioneer in video-streaming media hubs, but as Apple TV became popular, and HDTVs and Blu-ray players began supporting Netflix and other online services, Roku boxes started to look less unique and less useful. The latest box, the Roku 3 changes that. What`s new? More power, a streamlined interface, an invaluable cross-service search feature, and a remote-mounted headphone jack."

Rosewill Ultra-Slim RedMere HDMI Cables Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Mar 17 2013 | 4:01P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Rosewill`s latest Ultra-Slim HDMI cables utilize RedMere`s RM1695 mini-booster modules. These Ultra-Slim HDMI cables from Rosewill have easily manageable 36 AWG wires that come in either black or white color. Twelve SKUs in total are offered by Rosewill including lengths of 3, 6, 10 and 15 ft as well as Male A-to-Male D and Male-A to Male-C HDMI cable versions. Rosewill`s Ultra-slim cables have a gold-plated Male-A connector with a much smaller jacket measuring only 15mm wide, 5mm thick and 14mm long (20mm for the TV end which contains the Redmere module). This is considerably smaller compared to the standard HDMI jacket which is 18mm wide, 10mm thick and 24mm long. The Rosewill Ultra-Slim cables can also be used on IP-enabled devices without the use of a separate Ethernet cable."

Intel Dishes On What Makes H.265 Worth Waiting For @ Techgage
     Thu, Mar 14 2013 | 9:53A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* Following-up on Januarys H.265 announcement, we had a chat with Intel to better understand some of the developments and enhancements made to the upcoming codec, compared to the venerable H.264 (AVC). Although Intel isnt the one conducting the development of H.265 (HEVC), the company has been keeping in good contact with those who are, because with the nature of its business, it pretty-well has to. We might not see on-CPU logic for H.265 anytime soon, but for Intel, the sooner things are sorted out, the better."

Samsung PNE7000FF Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, Mar 06 2013 | 7:05A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With companies like Samsung, Panasonic, and LG continuing to release new models, it`s safe to say the death of plasma HDTVs has been greatly exaggerated. The Samsung PNE7000FF line of Smart TVs are a great example of why plasma technology continues to hang on in a market dominated by LCD-based products."

Dune HD TV-303D Universal FullHD Network Media Player Review
     Fri, Feb 22 2013 | 9:23A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Standalone hardware media players have been around for around 5 years (and some of you know that Ive been putting them through rigorous tests right from the beginning) but they really started to make DVD and Blu-Ray players obsolete roughly a couple of years ago when people started to realize that they can have the basic functionality of an dedicated HTPC system (mainly media file playback, file sharing and web surfing) at just a fraction of the cost and in many cases with superior image quality. Now looking back a few months i really can`t remember when was the last time we had a hardware/network media player on our test bench so when a courier arrived at our door just over a week ago holding the latest TV-303D Universal FullHD Network Media Player by Dune HD i felt somewhat relieved to be on the receiving end of a newly released device which is not directly related to PC and smartphones."

Vizio E500i-A1 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sun, Feb 17 2013 | 5:16A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Vizio E500I-A1 is a 50-inch LED 1080p HDTV with deep black levels, a good selection of online content and a sleek design. We were a little disappointed with the quality of the image, however, especially in terms of the color vividness and the local-dimming."

Netgear NeoTV MAX HD Streaming Player Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Feb 14 2013 | 12:50P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NeoTV MAX comes packed with a bunch of features which will be very attractive to those who dont own a so-called Smart TV. The NeoTV can play 1080p HD video and produce 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround sound, and has built-in WiFi making placement easy. Netgear even includes a full QWERTY keyboard that is on the bottom-side of the remote control. You can even stream 3D movies from Vudu to your television. This all comes in a very small package that rivals the tiny Apple TV..."

Antennas Direct ClearStream Micron-R HDTV High Gain Indoor Antenna Review @ ModSynergy.com
     Wed, Feb 13 2013 | 11:04A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our good friends at Antennas Direct hooked us up with one of their newest indoor antennas, this being the infused red color version of their ClearStream Micron-R HDTV Indoor Antenna. Read on to see if it is any good, because I haven`t had too many success with other indoor antennas. But the Micron-R from Antennas Direct may be the solution."

LG 84LM960V / LG 84LM9600 UHD TV review
     Wed, Feb 06 2013 | 9:03A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We tested the LG 84LM960V / LG 84LM9600 UHD TV, which is the first UHD television that we’ve reviewed. The detail and depth is amazing on this screen, provided you watch UHD material that’s still quite difficult to find. Full HD material is barely upscaled, however. The price tag is pretty daunting, even if this is actually the most affordable 84-inch UHD TV on the market. In the UK it costs £22,499, on mainland Europe its costs around 15,000 euro, and in the US $19,999.

We check out the Ivy Bridge sporting HTPC from ASRock called the VisionX 321B. It`s got surprisingly good performance, but will the price turn you off? Let`s see."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
