There are many instances in which a smaller TV makes sense. For a room where TV viewing isn’t the primary activity, like the den, basement, or kid’s room; for a college dorm or space-challenged apartment; or for someone who’s just on a very tight budget, and might find the tradeoff in size for price sufficient to meet his TV viewing needs.

Overview – Samsung 85" S9 4k Smart TV

by Blogger on ‎11-27-2013 08:25 PM - last edited on ‎02-24-2014 05:12 PM by Editor in Chief

Samsung2.jpgIs it art, or is it entertainment? With the Samsung 4K (or Ultra High Definition – UHD) S9 TV, it’s hard to tell. With an 85” screen and crystal clear resolution, it would certainly look stellar on any wall large enough to house it. Making the art versus entertainment distinction even harder is the fact that the Samsung UHD S9 is a floor-standing TV mounted on what looks like an artist’s easel. Art meets entertainment in an 85” high definition package – sounds amazing right? Well, at a staggering $39,999 it should! So, the question is: What makes the Samsung UHD S9 worth a cool forty grand? Let me tell you …

Skype #1.jpegIf you have a Samsung Smart TV you can easily turn it into a video conferencing system using Skype with the Samsung Skype TV Camera. Sitting in the comfort of your living room and using your large and clear HD flat screen TV to see who you are talking is like having a conversation with someone in the room. It may even feel a bit like something out of a science fiction movie or a Star Trek episode. But the technology is here today, it is simple to use, and fairly inexpensive and easy to add on to your HDTV.Samsung Skype Camera

The Best TV available - Samsung's ES8000

Samsung ES8000 #4.jpgI think the newly launched Samsung ES8000 Plasma TV is the best TV on the market. This TV truly is different, in a fantastic way! It is a Smart TV that is now smarter than most, if not all phones, and it is loaded with more features than you can imagine or ever need. Technology seems to be morphing across many boundaries, and this TV is much more than just a TV. It is a multi-media device that can do so many things. It is fully Olympic ready, as I think it will beat any other TV on the market.

Samsung 55" LED Smart TVThis holiday season bring your family together using a brand new smart TV! We’ve all heard of smartphones, but some may still not be in the loop when it comes to the new concept of “Smart TVs”.  The time has finally come where TV and Internet are fully available on your TV without having a third party box. It’s all made possible with the Smart TV. Gone are the days of turning on your TV and simply flipping from channel to channel. Today we have so many more options available on these gigantic devices. Think of a smart TV as a giant tablet that you attach to your wall. They may not have touch capabilities (yet!), but what they do have is a plethora of interactive applications (apps) that you can enjoy.

The Best of Big Screen TVs - Just in Time for The Grey Cup

by Blogger on ‎11-25-2011 06:00 AM - last edited on ‎07-18-2012 11:52 AM by Best Buy Best Buy

GreyCup.jpgThis coming Sunday is a very important day in sports. You might even call it the Canadian Super Bowl. If you follow sports at all, you know that it is the 99th Grey Cup, which will see the BC Lions host the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on home turf. It’s going to be a gooder, that’s for sure. However, tickets are pretty hard to come by – trust me, I know … I’ve been trying to find them for weeks! But I digress. So for us lowly folk who were unable to, or simply didn’t want to attend the game in person, how can we make the most of our Grey Cup viewing experience?

 

Besides great friends and great food, a great big screen TV helps take Grey Cup Sunday from entertaining to spectacular. So here’s a breakdown of four of the best big screen TVs on the market right now to help make the selection process a little bit easier for you.

What’s the best way to share or transfer content from my smartphone to other devices?

by Blogger on ‎11-18-2011 01:44 PM - last edited on ‎07-18-2012 12:52 PM by Best Buy Best Buy

transfer-iphone-3g-mac.jpgThis is exactly what everyone wants to be doing! Why should your content only be in once place? You should be able to watch it where ever you want whenever you want! However, moving your data between devices can be tricky, especially if they are not all made by the same manufacturer. If you happen to have all Apple Products (iPhone, Mac, iPad and Apple TV) no problem! You’re first step should be to upgrade to iOS 5.0 and turn on iCloud on all your mobile devices.  Then you’ll want to turn on home sharing on all of your devices on your network and barring any unforeseen problems you’re good to share.  If you download something for your phone (say the latest song from your favorite artist) it will show up on your iPad and computer.  And if you want to watch it on your TV you can push it there using AirPlay and your AppleTV.

HD TV: A Must for the Stanley Cup Playoffs

by TechLinz on ‎06-02-2011 11:08 AM - last edited on ‎07-18-2012 11:47 AM by Best Buy Best Buy

samsung hdtvThis years hockey playoffs have been a nail biter to say the least, but the best action on the ice is yet to come with the final games here this week.   
 

Faithfully, I have been watching my home team - the Canucks, fight their way to the Stanley Cup. And at last, their persistence and hard work has paid off.  Canada (and especially Vancouver) are cheering them on every step of the way. So in the spirit of group cheer, I decided to watch Game #1 with a few friends instead of yelling at the TV by myself at home. Then disaster struck...

It’s a time of year when wearing a jersey with jeans is considered corporate-casual, when even the scraggliest of playoff beards is something of which one should be proud, and when a diet of beer and wings is standard. I’m talking about the Stanley Cup playoffs!

Blu-ray players and older home theatre

amplifier.jpgSo our amplifier recently fried itself which sent my husband on the search to find a new one. Deciding that we needed something bigger and better than the last but also realizing I wouldn’t let him fork out a small fortune, we opted for the second-hand route. I’m pleased to report the process went pretty smoothly and we’re now the proud owners of a new (but older) amp that’s more fan-dangled than the last. Be warned however, the second-hand route may not be for everyone. It does raise some issues that need to be considered...

What are the benefits to investing in a 3D TV?

by Blogger on ‎12-02-2010 01:08 PM - last edited on ‎07-18-2012 11:43 AM by Best Buy Best Buy

1451i838EDFF1A9FA6AB4Buying a 3D TV has a ton of benefits over a standard 2D set.

 

Firstly, it takes twice the amount of processing power to display a 3D image. 3D TVs display 2 1080P signals at the same time, most still maintaining a 120Hz frame rate. As a result, when just watching 2D broadcasts, the TV can take more information before bogging down. When TVs get overwhelmed, the resolution tends to be the first to be sacrificed turning a 720P broadcast into something comparable to YouTube.
