LG 2017 OLED and Super LED UHD 4K TVs: Hands-on review

The Wallpaper TV, Dolby Atmos sound bars, 6 Series, 8 Series, C-series OLED Smart 4K UHD TV

The 2016 units were stunning. So are the 2017 models. Theis is the W-series "Signature" Edition which is so thin it basically sticks to the wall. Despite the lack of body it actually costs a lot more. But at least it comes with an amazing, $1,700 Dolby Atmos soundbar with two Height channels.

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.

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.
