Sony BRAVIA X9500B 4K TV: Australian Review

Big TVs are great. Big, smart TVs are even better. Big, smart, ultra-detailed TVs are basically heaven. Sony has a new $20,000 4K Ultra HD telly that is, for my money, the best TV you can buy today. I spent a day with Sony’s 85-inch BRAVIA X9500B, and it was quite fun.


Samsung UD590 4K Monitor: Australian Review

The current crop of 4K monitors have a lot going on — they have to compromise on price, size, design and image quality all at the same time.

4K Is Officially The Next Dumb Format War

If your bank account has left you unaware of the state of the 4K movement, here’s a fun surprise: if you buy a 4K movie from Sony, you’ll need a Sony television to play it back.

Toshiba Satellite P50t Laptop: Australian Review

Toshiba isn’t the first company I usually think of when it comes to performance laptops. The Satellite series has consistently been a strong performer in terms of value for money, but you haven’t always been able to rely on them for outright computing grunt. But times are changing.
