Some TV manufacturers are falling head-over-heels for OLEDs, but not Sony. The Japanese electronics giant isn’t going to ‘take the easy way out’, at least not when it comes to the race for a bigger chunk of the high-end TV cake.

When Smart TV, aka connected TV, was introduced it changes the way we watch TV and in a way, took a stab at paid cable TV providers. We are no longer bound to free-to-air TV and subject to cable TV’s schedule which often do not fit our lifestyle. It was a new found freedom. A leap it was from traditional TV but there’s one thing that never change: however fancy the display and however ‘smart’ the TV are, the TV from past to present have one thing in common: remote control. We are in a ‘smart’ era and it kind of sucks that we are not firing up holographic menus from our coffee table when surfing the channels. No, we are not there yet, but with the announcement of the Vizio SmartCast P-Series Ultra HD HDR Home Theater Display, couch potatoes are finally seeing some real advancement in TV and home entertainment in general.

However, we are expecting a sub $1,500 sticker since the 49-inch model cost under 900. Continue reading Sceptre Introduces New 55-inch UHD TV with SRS TruSurround HD Sound and Super Thin Bezel
