TCL’s 4K under $5K -- a bargain 65-inch Ultra HD TV

TCL E5691 65-inch Ultra HD TV available from mid-September

Ultra HD TVs are starting to become more and more prevalent at the top of Australia’s top electronics manufacturers’ product listings. They carry commensurate price tags, though, with the smallest and cheapest being Sony’s $5,999 55-inch X Series BRAVIA.

TCL’s 65-inch E5691 is only $4,999. The new Chinese-made TV has a resolution or 3840x2160 pixels, equalling the resolution of similar panels from Sony, Samsung and LG.

Since there is very little Ultra HD content available to consumers, and no delivery method like Blu-ray or DVD to easily store that content, the TCL E5691 can up-scale lower quality video to its native resolution. Up-scaling doesn’t increase the overall detail visible in video, but can make it more appropriate for viewing on a higher-resolution screen.

The TV also has built-in Wi-Fi, with direct access to YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Vimeo, SBS on Demand and SMH.tv, and a ‘Nscreen’ wireless screen sharing feature, supporting compatible Android smartphones and tablets. It’ll be available in mid-September.

TCL also used the opportunity to launch two new series of 1080p LED TVs — the E5510 and F3500 — with largely identical specifications to the E5691 apart from screen resolution and size.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
