Panasonic's 2014 TVs: Everything You Need To Know

Although they’re being launched slightly later than competitors LG and Samsung and Sony, Panasonic’s 2014 TVs look like they’re going to be hugely popular.

Kogan Agora 4K Smart 3D LED TV: Australian Review

Do you need an expensive 4K TV? Probably not. Unless you’re running a high-end PC gaming rig, you’ll be watching upscaled Blu-ray and DVD content anyway, which makes spending a fortune on a 4K TV pointless. Kogan’s 4K TV, though, is only $1500, and it’s surprisingly good for the price.

If you’re an avid gamer that wants to buy a new TV, you’re in a bit of a difficult position. TV makers in Australia go to great pains to sell their screens’ movie- and TV-watching potential, but don’t really discuss how they perform with an Xbox One or PS4 or gaming PC plugged in.


Panasonic WT600A Ultra HD TV: Australian Review

Ultra HD video still isn’t common, even 18 months after the release of the first UHD TV in Australia. There’s no one-stop shop for buying or renting 4K video, and our dodgy ‘net makes it difficult to stream.

Sony Is Banking On 4K, Not OLED, For The Future Of TV
