When you’re buying your lunch today, you might want to take a moment and spend a little more.

Now Is The Time To Buy A 4K TV

4K TVs have come a long way. They used to be expensive, there was nothing to watch on them and you could do better for less buying 1080p. That’s not the case any more: There’s plenty to watch, new 4K panels have a ton of features and they’re affordable enough for everyone now. If you’ve been waiting, now it’s safe to start looking.


How To Calibrate Your TV And Make It Look Better

So you’ve just bought a new TV. Maybe it’s a cheap one that you picked up at Aldi. Maybe you got a great deal on a really expensive one from your mate at the hi-fi shop. Either way, the second you set it up, there are a few small tweaks that you can do to make it look better than it already does. You can spend zero dollars on this or you can spend a couple of hundred, but the result that you get will be a noticeable improvement.


Is Aldi's $799 65-Inch 4K TV Actually Worth It?

Aldi has a 65-inch 4K LCD TV on sale for $799 tomorrow morning. It’s a ridiculously low price for a TV of that screen size and resolution — so is it a crap TV with a matching price tag, or a diamond in the rough? I wanted to find out. So I decided to pit it against the best TV you can buy.



The Next TV You Buy Will Be More High-Tech Than Ever, But Not How You Might Think

Ever since LCD TVs hit the scene about 10 years ago, we’ve seen small and incremental changes — better backlighting, higher quality panels. The last couple of years has been tumultuous, though, and 4K is now a thing (you’d be silly to buy a TV without it). With that done, TV makers are back to the minor iterative updates. But it’s 2016, and even those updates are pretty damn cool.


Gizmodo TV Buying Guide 2016: How The Tech Behind Your TV Screen Works

When you plug your Blu-ray player, games console or media streaming box into a shiny new Full HD or Ultra HD LCD or OLED television, there’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes to display an image correctly and at the highest quality possible. All TVs might seem (very roughly) equal when you see them in the store, but there’s a lot of different aspects — 4K, LED, HDR and more — that you need to learn before you pick a new screen to buy. Here’s our quick guide to all the important tech inside your TV.


Gizmodo TV Buying Guide 2016: Everything You Need To Know About Backlighting

If you’re buying a TV this year — and it’s a good year to buy a TV — then you have only a few choices to make before you’ve picked out a great screen. As well as working out whether you want 4K or HDR, and what screen size you’re after in the first place, and what inbuilt smart features you want, your main choice is what TV backlighting technology you want your new big-screen telly to use. We’re here to tell you the difference between edge-lit and back-lit LED, LCD and OLED, quantum dot and local dimming, and more.


Samsung Series 9 SUHD LED TV: Australian Review

Lots of TVs look good when they’re turned on, with bright and vibrant colours and fancy on-screen interfaces. Sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference. But flick them off, and most — most, not all — look a bit weird, ugly and cheap. Not any more. Samsung’s most expensive TV for 2016 looks just as good when it’s switched off as it does when it’s switched on. If you think about it, that’s kind of important.


Everyone Is Lying About Not Watching TV

Saying “I don’t own a TV” is a good way to let people know that you’re a pretentious arsehole. But even though more and more people are eager to tell you they don’t “have TV,” don’t be fooled! You better believe that they are still “watching TV.”
