TCL 6 series Roku TV

Roku

The 6 series this TV with full-array local dimming, Dolby Vision HDR and Roku’s sweet Smart TV system.

Local dimming, which illuminates different areas (zones) of the screen independently, is one of the best ways to improve LCD image quality. TCL has upped the number of local dimming zones to 96 on the 55-inch version of the 6-series and a whopping 120 zones on the 65-incher. Compare that to Vizio’s M series, which only had 32 zones. More local dimming zones usually mean better image quality because they allow more precise control of screen lighting. Continue reading TCL 6 series Roku TV

How quantum dots could challenge OLED for best TV picture

We’ve said it before but it bears repeating: Samsung’s QLED TV technology is not the same as LG’s OLED TV technology.

1.Supporting the Xbox One X is completely optional for developers
After having been direct competitors for so many years, it’s only natural that both Sony and Microsoft have started to look very similar. Microsoft introduced Achievements, so Sony brought out Trophies, Microsoft asked gamers to pay to play games online, and now so does Sony. The list goes on and on.
Sony has been very clear from the start that developers have to support the PS4 Pro if they want to release a game on the PS4. That doesn’t mean every game has to display in native 4K, but they’ll all have to be able to support the new hardware in some fashion. Continue reading What you need to know about the Xbox One X
