My mother does not want to know how much my brother spent on his future-proof TV last year. She saw the shiny speakers built into the sides, and the gorgeous picture, and she listened to him extol the virtues of being prepared for HDR and 4K and UHD and she threw up her hands. “It’s too rich for my blood.” She was…
Unless you’re spending a lot of time in mainland China you’ve probably never heard of LeEco. But you should know LeEco. In 2015 the company sold more phones than Apple. Its web series, Go Princess Go, was one of the most watched web series in China, before censors had it edited due to too many bisexual time travelling…
We think of CES as the time for all the major TV announcements, but more and more companies are holding back their big stuff until later in the year. See Vizio waiting until March to announce a new lineup of TVs priced to sit between their budget and high-end reference sets. But the real kicker of their 2016 P-series?…
Google’s Chromecast is the miracle dongle that makes streaming video, photos, websites, and anything else from a laptop or smartphone simple as hell. Now, it’s going to be even more simple to stream straight from your phone to your TV.
Vizio can’t stop making its cheap 4K TVs even cheaper. The company just announced this year’s M-Series Ultra HD Smart TV Collection. They start at $600 for the 43-inch screen, and boy do they look beautiful.
Do you own a 39- or 42-inch E-Series Vizio flat screen? Does your flat screen keep falling on its face? Then we have some good news for you, friends: Vizio just recalled about 245,000 of its TVs due to a "risk of tip over."
Vizio's new Sound Stand aims to be a simple, cheap ($250) solution for your TV's crappy sound, even simpler and more discreet than a sound bar. But even if it's cheap and convenient, the Sound Stand is less than you bargain for.
As well as covering the ridiculous high end, Vizio is carrying on like usual and pumping out some great value TVs. Like its new 4K sets, which will start at a fairly bargainous $1,000.
Ever since affordable-TV-mainstay Vizio entered the PC market two years ago, it's been the proud producer of some of the best-looking laptops and all-in-ones this side of Cupertino. With its latest refresh, it may have finally found the function to match its form.
Holy shit, giant TV.
Bluetooth speakers are all the same right? You connect your phone to them to wirelessly beam bumping music. Not Vizio's brand new Smart Audio speakers though. Vizio's Bluetooth speakers also have a freaking Android tablet running Kit Kat built in. Yes, there are 7-inch and 4.7-inch tablets on speakers now.
Vizio's new monstrous (in the best way) new sound bar packs some smart new features including center channel vocal boost and different levels of surround virtualization, but the best thing about it? It's super cheap.
$9,000 for a TV? Doesn't matter if it's curved, spherical, or damned trapezoidal; doesn't matter if the LEDs are organically raised or not, that's an absurd amount of money to throw down on a set. And unless you're a lucky member of the 1 percent, it's not really even an option. Here's a solid TV for the every-man.
Vizio has a cute, self-deprecating display up at CES. It showed a Vizio TV made 10 years ago compared to one made in 2012. TVs were butt fugly back then—it's as big a difference as a Palm Pilot and the iPhone 5.
Tiny tablets are oh so stylish today, and Vizio is in the game. And holy hell, this little Jelly Bean thing is lovely to hold.
Vizio's got a nice surprise at CES this year: one of the only tablets with a Tegra 4 processor inside you can find anywhere in the world, outside of some death vault at Nvidia headquarters. We used it.
Vizio's "Tablet PC" (cooler name pending, presumably) gets everything right on paper, and a lot off paper: a 1080p screen, a full, no-bullshit version of Windows 8 (none of that RT nonsense), and an AMD (!) x86 processor inside. But it's bulky.
The most impressive thing anyone is going to see at CES 2013 is a big, beautiful TV. Unfortunately, most of these are only being made for the 1%, for now. But Vizio's might be the first ultra-HD within reach. Kinda.
