We all know how expensive 4K TVs are, but thanks to brands like TCL, getting cutting edge TV no longer need not to be a bank breaker. The brand’s 6 Series 4K HDR Roku TVs is one good example. Granted, it may not be as flexible in entertainment because they are not Android TVs, but armed with Roku, it should have enough entertainment to fill most people’s day.

While Samsung and LG are busy in the pursuit of curved displays, Sony has not forgotten that we, the consumers, might still be yearning for a thinner TV set (do we?). At the world’s most celebrated consumer electronics show earlier this month, the Japanese electronics giant debuted its 2015 4K Ultra HD TVs and among them is the super thin XBR 900C series sets, featuring a new ultra-thin floating style design.

It the first product from the long-term partnership between Fuseproject and Samsung. For the S9W, Fuseproject conceived as an art object with the S9W curved display being the sculpture.

Even before dust for Ultra HD resolution TV has barely settled, South Korea’s forerunner in flat panel TV, Samsung, promised to make them even more compelling with its new line of smart TV called SUHD TV. We are going to assume the ’S’ here stands for ‘Super’, which is Samsung’s way of saying it is a step above the ‘regular’. Right off the bat, Samsung has three series, namely JS9500, JS9000 and JS8500, with screen sizes ranging from 48-inch all the way to 88-inch that falls under the SUHD TV. So what the heck is SUHD? In basic layman language it simply promised “stunning contrast, striking brightness and spectacular color” and in a more techy speaks, it uses quantum-dot technology that allows Samsung to create displays to produce more colors (64 times more, to be precise) than standard LCD TVs, at a lower cost.
