Antiques Roadshow Appraised My 2008 Toshiba TV

In June, Antiques Roadshow visited Birmingham, Alabama, my home for the last three years. I don’t own a Tiffany lamp or a 19th century Chesterfield sofa. I do, though, have a flatscreen television that’s ancient by consumer electronics standards. So that’s what I brought to be appraised.


LG's 105-Inch 4K TV Costs A Breathtaking $125,000

LG’s TVs certainly don’t come cheap these days, but its new 105-inch ultrawidescreen, Ultra HD TV perhaps pushes the limits to the extreme: it costs an eye-watering $125,000.


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.

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. Plasma TV is dead and buried (sob), but the new and revitalised LED LCD TV lineup has a big focus on excellent picture quality — including deep black levels and plasma-esque contrast — and simple, elegant design.


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.


The World's Biggest TV Can Be Yours For $US1.7 Million

A British company called Titan just unveiled a new TV, and it’s ridiculous. At 370 inches, it’s the largest television in the world, and at $US1.7 million it also has to be the most expensive. But who could say no to 4K resolution on a screen that’s the size of a house?


A New Vulnerability Could Leave Smart TVs Exposed

A new hack that requires little more than a $US250 1-watt amplifier could leave your smart TV vulnerable to a man-in-the-middle attack. It’s called the “Red Button” attack, after the red button on your remote that allows you to control the interactive features of your smart TV, and was discovered by two researchers at the Columbia University Network Security Lab.


How To Choose The Best TV For Gaming

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.
