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.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
