LG Curved OLED Vs Sony 4K LCD: Which TV Tech Reigns Supreme?

It’s not an easy time to be shopping for a new TV. Do you want that crisp 4K resolution, or a gorgeous new OLED display? Unless you have tens of thousands of dollars burning a hole in your pocket, you can’t have them both in the same screen. Which is why we decided to pit them against each other.


Sharp Crammed Over 400,000 Pixels On This Insane 4-Inch Display

The digital camera megapixels arms race might be over, but now smartphone display makers have taken up the cause, trying to cram as many pixels as possible into their screens. And Sharp has now claimed superpower status with a 4.1-inch display boasting a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, or 736ppi. For comparison, the iPhone 6 plus has a ppi of just 401.


TVs Explained: An Introduction To 4K Ultra High Definition

Gizmodo Video Guide: One of the factors you need to consider when buying a new big screen TV is whether or not you want to get into Ultra HD (4K) resolutions. But what exactly does that mean? This beginner’s guide is a great place to start.


Apple iMac With Retina 5k Display: Australian Review

Hey, Apple. How’d you fit… all that stuff… in dem screens?! Poorly appropriated pop song lyrics aside, Apple’s 5K iMac is bafflingly good. So good that Apple is going to have to pry this review unit from my cold, dead hands.


A Look At How Royal Caribbean's New Virtual Balconies Work

It almost sounded too crazy to be true, when Royal Caribbean announced that it would begin installing virtual balconies in windowless rooms on its latest cruise ships. Giant screens that simulate breathtaking ocean views in real time sound crazy! The travel company was not lying, though, and now they have got video to prove it.


Welcome To The Living Room Of The Future

You’ve no doubt dreamed about the living room of the future. Ever since the advent of the TV — or the radio — images of friends and families gathered around the home entertainment systems of tomorrow have been flying at you in fiction. Wall-spanning TVs, virtual reality goggles, computerized assistants that respond to your every whim — all totally fathomable yet just beyond reach.


iMac With Retina 5K Display Review: Do Those Extra Pixels Really Matter?

Resolution is often misunderstood. You instinctively know that you want more of it, even when its real utility doesn’t live up to the marketing hype. And Apple’s new $2999 iMac has a lot of hype to live up to.


PC Gaming At 4K Is The Killer App For Ultra HD TVs

If you’re an enthusiastic PC gamer, there is a legitimately good reason to buy a new Ultra HD TV. Consoles look good at 4K, but it’s PCs that do the most to show off the potential of the new display tech. Last Friday, I played Project CARS on LG’s new curved Ultra HD OLED TV, in glorious 4K. (4K and Ultra HD are the same thing, of course — it’s all just a marketing term for the 3840x2160pixel resolution standard.) Bandai Namco was running a special preview of the racing title, now due to be released in March next year, to show off the LG TV’s gaming abilities, so I went along to give a Formula 1 car a test drive around Mount Panorama.


LG 65EC970T Curved Ultra HD OLED TV: Australian Review

TVs are getting more and more advanced as this year goes on. We’ve seen curved screens, OLED panels and 4K pixel density popping up all over the place, from a bunch of different brands. But we haven’t seen all three in one TV that you can actually go out and buy. LG’s newest top-of-the-line 65-inch EC970T panel is curved, has a ridiculously high-res Ultra HD 4K resolution, and uses unique OLED tech for infinite contrast — and it is, at the moment, the perfect TV.
