Even if today’s TVs have a lot in common, some models certainly have more standout features and impressive specs than others. With CES now well behind us and the new models rolling out to store shelves, I thought this would be a good time to compile a list of TVs and displays...

Spring cleaning time is here, and it’s time to clean up your home theater room. You’ve already replaced the dozen or so remotes you have for all your devices with a universal remote, swapped your old component video cables with HDMI, and tied them all up neatly behind your components. Are you finished, though? With cleaning and de-cluttering your viewing area, maybe, but how about maximizing your...

Our computer and home entertainment systems are similar in the way they display content and allow us to immerse ourselves in the experience. Even with that pretty big similarity, they can sometimes feel like two completely different and incompatible worlds, and unnecessarily so. Add a smartphone or tablet to the mix and things can become even more fragmented. Each of these devices offers audio...

With multiple models in this series ranging from 32" all the way to 70", there’s a display to suit anyone’s needs. A terminology tidbit first: if it’s referred to as a “tuner-free display,” you’ll need the...

TVs have come a long way in their relatively brief existence. They’ve gone from 8 x 8 resolution in their first demonstration, in 1909, to various versions of what we call 4K, the most common of which is 3840 x 2160. Over this 106-year period, the science behind the screen has evolved, from the initial 64 selenium cell matrix to the CRT (tube) TVs you and I grew up with, to plasma, LCD, and LED....

For years, Casio was known as “that calculator company.” High-school and college students, and those in the fields of science, engineering, and advanced math were rushing out to buy the latest scientific or graphing calculator for their increasingly difficult equations. They chose Casio for a good reason: not only did Casio develop the first all-electric compact calculator in 1957, the company...

VIZIO is a brand that we have affectionately covered on more than one occasion, and for good reason. To put it simply, VIZIO makes great high-definition televisions. That doesn’t tell the complete story though; the company makes great HDTVs at prices that won’t leave you staring hopelessly through store windows—you can save that sort of behavior for sports-car watching. This California-based...

2015 is here, and it’s almost gone. Cars aren’t whizzing by above our heads, and there isn’t a fleet of robots waiting to make our beds and take out the trash. Ah, the potential of technology that’s yet to come—having to walk to the kitchen and prepare my own latte is so yesteryear. Looking back to a childhood filled with Jetsons-like expectations for the future, present-day technology hasn’t...

What is a projection screen and what is it used for? A projection screen is a large reflective surface, usually white, that’s typically hung on a wall in a room at some distance in front of any type of digital or film projector for the purposes of entertainment, training, education, or sales presentation. Compared to a bare wall, a projection screen affords higher reflectivity, resulting in a...
