The Replacements - Dead Man’s Pop Music Album Reviews

The new box set includes demos, a live show, and a fascinating, stripped-down remix of the band’s 1989 album Don’t Tell a Soul that reveals an alternate history of one of their most divisive records.
The Replacements story is filled with what-ifs and near misses. Their legend, essentially, is that if the chips had fallen differently, they might have become a popular band and had success into the 1990s, like their friends and rivals R.E.M. What if they had played ball with their label? What if they hadn’t made so many enemies? What if they hadn’t been so fucked up?

Fitbit Force review - hands on with activity tracker wristband that helps you get fit

The Force is the latest activity tracker from Fitbit, maker of the similar Flex and One activity monitors. You keep the wristband on all day and night as it monitors not just your physical activity but your ‘sleep efficiency’ too. [Updated January 10, 2014: UK release date information; Updated January 19, 2014: UK price confirmed so full Star Ratings added.]

The Fitbit Force adds in a bunch of the features long desired by users of the (still available) Fitbit Flex fitness wristband – and envied by other trackers such as the Nike FuelBand and Jawbone. Read our hands-on review of the Fitbit Force to find out how all these new fitness and activity-tracking features can help you get fitter and even lose weight – in conjunction with a healthy (ish) diet, of course.

Fitbit Zip review: a good budget activity tracker

Since the Zip was launched, many new activity trackers have been launched, but none are as cheap as the Zip. Now that you can pick it up for as little as £30, it's barely more expensive than some pedometers and a whopping £100 cheaper than a Nike FuelBand SE

Fitbit One long-term review: a great activity tracker at a sensible price

Fitbit has almost become the Hoover of fitness monitors; people have already started calling any activity tracker a Fitbit.

Misfit Shine Activity Monitor review - stylish, discreet fitness watch is useful, but inaccurate

The Misfit Shine Activity Monitor is - as the name suggests - a wearable gadget aimed at tracking your aerobic activity in order to inspire you to do more. A small silver grey pellet that can be worn on the wrist or clipped on to a belt, it offers a certain minimalist charm. And paired with the deditcated iPhone app or Android app it allows you to set goals and then track the distances you walk and run each day in order to see if you hit those goals.

HTC One vs Moto X comparison review: Which Android smartphone is best?

So the Moto X is making its way to the UK but how does it fare against one of the best smartphone from last year, the HTC One? Find out in our HTC One vs Moto X comparison review.

Fotor for Windows 8 review: a fast and fun way to edit photos whether or not you have a touchscreen

Fotor is an “all-in-one” photo editing app designed for Windows 8 tablets. The interface aims to make it easy to edit your photos with a few taps and swipes, much like Google’s SnapSeed. See also: Best Windows 8 apps
To the right is a series of buttons which can be considered the main menu.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga review: a well-designed convertible laptop

Lenovo's Yoga laptops have proved to be among the more popular convertible devices that can function as both a laptop and a tablet, and the company has now added a Yoga model to its ThinkPad range of business laptops. See all high-end laptops reviews.

Moto G vs Moto X comparison review: What's the best Motorola smartphone?

The Moto X is coming to the UK and the Moto G is already available so you might be trying to decide which to buy. Well that's where we come in because we've compared the two Android smartphones in various categories to highlight how they differ.

Moto X vs iPhone 5C smartphone comparison review: cheaper Android matches or betters iPhone in every respect

Here's why we are making this comparison: the Moto X is Motorola's current flagship smartphone, but it has a mid-range £350 inc VAT price tag for the 16GB model. The iPhone 5C is the cheaper of Apple's current smartphones, but it's not cheap.

Pebble Steel smartwatch hands-on review: Pebble has a new smartwatch that adds more style and substance

One of the more unique pieces of wearable technology to launch at this year’s CES is the Pebble Steel . We got to spend some time with the device, here’s our Pebble Steel hands-on review.

New Jabra Solemate review - portable Bluetooth speaker offers decent sound, striking looks, great build

The Jabra Solemate HFS200 is a portable Bluetooth speaker for use with laptop, tablet, phone and digital music player. The Solemate has 2 tweeters and a subwoofer. With equalisation it produces a surprisingly big-and-bassy sound for such a small device, especially over Bluetooth. But this is not a cheap option and the stylings may put off as many people as they attract.

Quiet PC Serenity Mini Gamer review - a PC for gamers that's almost silent in use

Quiet PC operates according to an entirely different set of priorities. Where we're used to gaming PCs with such intense names as "Viper" and "Warbird", Quiet PC offers up Serenity. Known for building quiet and even entirely silent systems, the company has made a few, but not many, concessions in the name of gaming performance.

Nexus 5 vs Moto X comparison review: Which Google Android smartphone should you buy?

Google's Nexus 5 smartphone has been very popular since launch and after a number of months on sale in the US Google-owned Motorola has decided to bring the Moto X to the UK. See how these to mid-range priced smartphones compare to each other in our Nexus 5 vs Moto X comparison review.

Risk Of Rain review

A superficial glance at last year's gaming headlines might suggest 2013 was the year of new consoles. Not a bit of it - the big gaming shift last year was a resurgence of roguelikes and their offspring - games based around the concept (and join terror/thrill) of permanent character death. The sudden and total loss of all your progress and items, leaving you only with whatever you've learned from the experience.

Swann DVR4-1500 4 Channel Compact DVR Pro-510 Camera review: as a complete CCTV system this an attractive proposition for the money

With the addition of a computer monitor or a suitable TV with VGA port you can use the system without a PC or network. However the interface and recording features are accessible after ethernetting the DVR to your network.  See all camera reviews.

Serif WebPlus X7 review

Scosche BoomBOTTLE review - rugged portable speaker looks like a water bottle, sounds just okay

The Scosche BoomBOTTLE is a portable speaker, able to pair with smartphone or tablet or laptop via USB or 3.5mm jack. It's shaped like a drinks bottle and built to withstand the rigours of an active and outward-bound lifestyle. The Scosche BoomBOTTLE retails for £119 but we've found it online for as little as £95. Here's PC Advisor's Scosche BoomBOTTLE review. See also Group test: What's the best portable Bluetooth speaker?

Samsung 840 EVO mSATA 500 GB review, lab tests - high-performance mSATA SSD for laptop, PC or storage drive

The ultraportable laptop that inspired Intel to dream up the marketing label of Ultrabook also lead to a new fashion for small mSATA solid-state drives. With such a slim body it's unsurprising that Apple had to use a new storage form-factor beyond the traditional 2.5in SATA disk for the sake of the MacBook Air.

Schenker XMG C703 review: a gaming laptop that provides great perfroamnce for its price

Schenker's XMG range of gaming laptops provides strong performance and good value for money, but they've never been particularly pretty to look at. Of course, most gaming laptops are big and heavy, but rivals such as Alienware do at least deck their kit out with flashing lights and other eye-candy intended to hint at the awesome power lurking within. In contrast, most the laptops that we've seen from Schenker in the past have just been rather dull, grey lumps of plastic. See all high-end laptops reviews.

Survey Says Super Bowl Drives More TV Sales than Black Friday or Cyber Monday

Samsung was named as the most popular TV brand in FatWallet's "2014 TV Buyer Survey."
Just because you didn't find a new HDTV under the tree this year, all hope is not lost. Believe it or not, most people don't count on Santa to deliver a big screen. Instead, they wait for a different season: football season.

Blue Jasmine Blu-ray Review

The Film
It's hard to believe that Woody Allen has anything left to say about New York -- anything interesting, anyway. That said, it's easy to see how the writer/director would be inspired by a creepy character like Bernie Madoff.
Allen uses a Madoff-type scandal to drive his main character out of his beloved home state in Blue Jasmine. Now, you may notice that Allen's vision of San Francisco looks a lot like the filmmaker's typical surroundings. It's also nothing like what the title character has become accustomed to.
However, Jasmine (Cate Blanchett) is looking to start a new life. Well, not voluntarily, really. She needs to leave her perfect life behind, because her husband Hal (Alec Baldwin) is a cheat in more ways than one. The events surrounding her marriage force Jasmine across in the country and into a spiral that would make Blanche DuBois look like someone you'd want to hang out with.

MURPH: The Protector Blu-ray Review

The Film

June 28, 2005 was a devastating day for the United States' Special Operations forces in Afghanistan. As part of Operation Red Wings, a team of four Navy SEALs became embroiled in a mountainside fire fight with a sizeable enemy force while tracking a high ranking al Qaeda target. Attempting a rescue of the outnumbered SEALs, an MH-47 Chinook helicopter containing eight more SEALs and eight Army Night Stalkers was shot down by a rocket-propelled grenade, killing everyone on board. One member of the original SEAL team, Marcus Luttrell, survived the incident and was extracted days later during a second rescue operation.

Dallas Buyers Club Movie Review

The transformation of Matthew McConaughey from shirtless Adonis in bad movies to a major actor ready to compete for an academy award is complete. Over the last two years he has begun turning the tide. As Ron Woodroof in "Dallas Buyers Club", the metamorphosis has been completed.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Won't Charge or Turn On - How to Fix?

Gently pry the battery connector away from its port and reconnect it by pushing it back into place (photo courtesy of YouTube user "JerryRigEverything" - view linked video for details).
We get a fair amount of questions from readers about how to solve perplexing problems with electronic gear: HDTV set-up issues, Netflix error messages, cable and configuration problems, you name it, we've seen it. But this time our question came from an unlikely source: my eight-year-old daughter:

Captain Phillips Blu-ray Review

The Film
Back in 2009, the Maersk Alabama was hijacked by a group of Somali pirates. The ship's captain and some of its crew were held hostage for a brief period until the pirates escaped in a lifeboat, taking the captain with them. The pirates negotiated with the Navy for several days, before the SEALs stepped in. This isn't a movie. It's a true story.

Westone Delivers Pro Sound to All with UM Pro 50 Headphones

Good headphones can be kind of hard to find. We're not talking about the kind of headphones that you throw into your gym bag. We're talking about those headphones that allow you to feel the music. If you want to hear music as the artist intended you to hear it, you'll need to think like a musician -- as well as shop like one.

Wired2Fire Diablo GTX 2013; M review - littlest gaming PC offers good performance in compact chassis

At first glance, the Bitfenix Phenom system case of the Wired2Fire Diablo GTX – M gaming PC looks very similar to the Aerocool DS favoured by Chillblast and Yoyotech. However, this PC is quite noticeably smaller in size and is fitted with a diminutive Asus Z87 M Plus Micro ATX motherboard.
Because of its smaller dimensions, space inside the case is rather tight and access to the components is somewhat restricted. Cooling is helped by a Corsair H80 liquid CPU cooling unit which uses a radiator fitted to the rear of the case.

Sky Now TV Box review - is Sky's little and cheap media-streamer a good deal for on-demand TV fans?

The Sky Now TV Box is a cute little gizmo that plugs into your dumb TV and makes it smart. Thus you can sign up for Sky's Now TV service and enjoy all of Sky's broadcasting without a long-term contract, a satellite dish or cable connectivity. (See all Digital Home reviews.)

Sony PS4 review 2014: PlayStation 4 is a good looking and powerful console with fantastic hardware

Sony's PlayStation has reached its fourth generation, but it is worth your hard earned cash? Find out in our full PS4 review. Updated on 15/01/14 . The PS4 looks more like the PS2 than it does the PS3. Whether you like the wedge-shape design or not is up to you, we're not going to spend long talking about it. However, the PlayStation 4 is undeniably slender and compact.

XFX Radeon R9 290X Boost Edition review: a high-end graphics card with lower power consumption

After several months of retooling older technology as modern-day finely-specified pixel-shufflers, AMD has finally unleashed its brand new headliner, the R9 290X - or Hawaii, as it's more memorably called. As with the other new cards, this will be an extra performance 'X'-rated version, with a standard non-X chip quickly following. The first glance at the 290X shows it to be something of a monster on paper, packing a rather substantial 6.2 billion transistors. The Radeon 7970, by comparison, used just 4.31 billion, and even the truly heavyweight nVidia Titan offers only slightly more, at 7.1 billion. For all its hardware, though, the 290X isn't as gargantuan as you might think, and the size increase is relatively small given the additional firepower. See all graphics card reviews.

Yoyotech Warbird RS2 review - small gaming PC offers superb all-round performance

Yoyotech's Warbird RS2 is a compact Micro ATX form factor gaming PC, with an eye-catching design and very strong performance in both gaming- and every day application use.
The Aerocool DS Cube case makes an appearance here, this time in a fiery red colour which matches the detailing on the twin-fans of the factory-overclocked Asus GTX780 DirectCU II graphics card. This can be clearly seen through the case's transparent side panel.

Report: The Kia GT4 Stinger could see production according to the designer

A recent report surfaced surrounding the latest Kia GT4 Stinger Concept, which was revealed for the world to see at this year’s Detroit Auto Show just a few short days ago.

Report: Volvo V60 priced from $36,225

Well, maybe not that V60, but the base model 2015 Volvo V60 will set you back $36,225 when it goes on sale in the ‘States next month. As one of the few remaining low-slung wagon options in the US, the V60 is a favorite in the northeastern snowbelt region, but not everywhere else. In Volvo’s lineup, sales of the V60 fall somewhere between midpack or below. The base car comes equipped with a turbocharged Drive E four cylinder engine, which chucks out 240 horsepower. This sounds normal until one gets around to the rear liftgate and sees a “T5? badge. Volvo has evidently gone the way of BMW and Mercedes by upping the numbers slightly to stay in keeping with legacy names, or when the opportunity arises, to just put down a larger number.

Report: Meeting the 54.4 MPG CAFE standard by 2025 may be easy

In 2012, the US Government set a fuel economy standard for 2025: 54.4 miles to the gallon. According to Brian Kessler of Johnson Controls, this number may be attainable, and doesn’t pack the sharp bite that one may expect. Despite some efforts by the EPA to bring their fuel economy testing into real world situations, the economy ratings are still somewhat innaccurate. According to Kessler, that lofty economy number translates into 40 mpg for typical driving conditions. In other words, it’s not necessary to have a Prius or any other full hybrid or electric system to attain decent fuel economy numbers.

Report: Jeep guns for over 1 million cars per year

In an interview, Sergio Marchionne, CEO of Jeep’s parent company, Fiat, asserted that he anticipates Jeep to sell over 1 million cars this year. Despite efforts by Jeep CEO, Mike Manley, to downplay this figure, it seems that Marchionne knows something that Manley doesn’t or he is simply attempting to suck in more investors. Manley calls the suggestion “a stretch” owing to a run of 568,317; 701,626; and 731,565 units from 2011 to 2013, respectively.

Report: Mercedes C-Class Coupe, Wagon and AMG Version on the way

As may have been anticipated, Mercedes will be offering the aforementioned variants of the C-Class. According to a report from Car and Driver, the new C coupe will not come out for another year.

Porsche may be expanding their portfolio as word is from AutoCar in the UK reports that Porsche could be producing a BMW 5-Series competitor that’s similar in form to the Panamera sedan.

Report: 2015 BMW M3/4 Pricing, Options, Revealed

Starting in the summer of 2015, the entry level BMW M cars will go on sale starting at $62,000 for the M3 and $64,200 for the M4; on top of this is a $925 destination fee. Powered by a TwinPower Turbo 3 liter inline six, the M3/4 cars are now given 425 horsepower and 406 ft lbs of torque through a limited slip differential and the choice of a 6 speed manual or automated 7 speed manual gearbox.

Calyx Debuts Reference-Quality M Portable Music Player

With all of the smartphones and tablets out there, it's hard to break out in the portable music player market. Calyx Audio is trying to stand out by offering really good audio in a portable package.
The company just debuted its Calyx M personal audio player at CES. The difference between this product and the many devices out there is that it promises reference-quality music with all of the convenience of your typical portable.

Hands-on with Bang and Olufsen's BeoSound Essence Music System

This week in Las Vegas at CES, Danish electronics manufacturer Bang & Olufsen (B&O) unveiled a new multi-room music control system designed for supreme ease of use: BeoSound Essence. The Essence controller mounts on a wall like a light switch providing easy access to your music: internet radio stations, Spotify or network-stored music collections. Meanwhile a hideaway box provides back-end control and wireless network integration. A new BeoMusic app was also launched to provide more granular access to your favorite songs, internet radio station and Spotify playlists.

Dolby Aims to Make TV Colors Look More Like Real Life with Dolby Vision

Dolby is really well known for everything they've done for the world of audio. Now, they want to share the love with the video side. The company just announced Dolby Vision, a new imaging technology for content creators and TV manufacturers.
Dolby Vision is designed to pump up all of the contrast, brightness and color that's typically dulled down during a video's production and/or distribution process. According to Dolby, TV and cinema color-grading standards are old and need original video to be altered before it can get to the viewer. Dolby Vision should change that, allowing creative types to use everything they've got -- colors, peak brightness, and local contrast -- and actually have it reach the audience.

GoldenEar Triton One Flagship Tower Speaker Makes Its Public Debut at CES 2014

Sandy Gross has a pretty good track record with loudspeakers. In the 1970s, he founded Polk Audio with a couple of buddies, then moved on to start up Definitive Technology in 1990. Both companies were (and continue to be) known for offering excellent-sounding speakers at affordable price points. A few years ago, Sandy decided to see if lightning would strike a third time, founding GoldenEar Technology.
Like his previous two efforts, GoldenEar is all about value. But this time, Sandy is reaching a little higher. Can you make a speaker than can satisfy even the pickiest of audiophiles without breaking the bank? Apparently you can. Or at least, Sandy can. GoldenEar's Triton speakers have generated quite the buzz in audiophile circles for sound quality that belies their (relatively) affordable prices.

Divorce Corp. Movie Review

Everyone in America has had some experience with divorce. We have all either gone through our own divorce or have someone close who has gone through it. The horror stories are legendary, and every possible variation of it has been portrayed in film and on television.
I am one of the lucky ones. I went through a divorce, but it was without rancor. The onset of the divorce proceedings instead provided an end to the problems. Some of my friends have not been so lucky. Their stories always make me picture divorce attorneys turning their clients upside down and shaking them until all of the cash has been extracted, much like a spider sucks the fluid out of the fly caught in its web.
The Documentary "Divorce Corp.", directed by Joseph Sorge, does not really break any new ground. Rather, it is a sensationalistic view of the process, highlighted by some particularly distasteful injustices perpetrated by the system. What we do learn is just how institutionalized and programmed the cor…

Cold Comes the Night Movie Review

Tze Chun has created a simple and small adventure in his "Cold Comes the Night". It very quickly establishes the setting as a motel not far from Albany, New York, that serves as a haven for druggies and prostitutes. Unpleasant things permeate every corner here. Even sunlight never seems to penetrate the ever-present dankness.

Her Movie Review

Spike Jonze, the director of "Her", has had an unusual career arc. He has spent the bulk of his time directing video shorts and documentaries, while occasionally popping up in something near the mainstream of feature film. His "Being John Malkovich" is one of my personal favorites and "Adaptation" was another of his films that I enjoyed. Both of those films were written by the brilliant and quirky Charlie Kaufman. Jonze's "Where the Wild Things Are" is his only other foray into feature writing. I am a little late to the show for Jonze's "Her", but according to some critics, it is a landmark film that will stand as something special for eternity. I respectfully disagree.

Kicker Personal Audio Debuts Bluetooth Speaker and 2 Headphone Products

At this week's CES 2014, Kicker Performance Audio is adding sound solutions for both in and outside of the home. The company just announced two separate headphone products, as well as a new Bluetooth audio speaker.
The Kicker Amphitheater K3 is a mid-size Bluetooth speaker for those with a small budget. It's the first Kicker wireless speaker to use aptX audio coding technology, which allows for wireless Bluetooth streaming without sacrificing any of the sound quality.

JVC Introduces Ultra HD TVs in Sizes from 55 to 85 Inches

JVC is getting in on the Ultra HD-enhanced festivities in Las Vegas. The company is out at CES 2014, showing off three new Ultra HDTVs, in sizes ranging from 55 to 85 inches.
That lineup includes the 55-inch DM55UXA ($1899.99), the 65-inch DM65UXA ($2499.99), and the 85-inch DM85UXA ($9999.99). That 85-incher is actually JVC's largest set to date.
All three models have direct LED backlight and 10-bit color capabilities, as well as the 3840 x 2160 resolution. Each one of the sets also has two HDMI 1.4 ports and two HDMI 2.0 ports with HDCP 2.2 content protection.

In Bloom Movie Review

It's 1992, in Tbilisi, the capital of the republic of Georgia. A brutal war is being fought in the northern Abkhazia region, far enough away to not be part of the daily lives of the people, but close enough that Tbilisi does somewhat feel its impact.

Highlights from Samsung @ CES 2014: Bendable TV, 105-inch 21:9 Ultra HD TV and More

Some of the things we see at CES will be available within a few weeks or months while others take their sweet time coming to market. Other products on display never make it past the show floor: statement pieces or prototypes that show what is possible when designers are freed from traditional constraints of budget and careful market analysis. They may never see a production run but they're impressive nonetheless.
Samsung always has a few tricks up their sleeve at CES (and I'm not talking about Michael Bay's awkward appearance at their press conference). The most unusual and impressive sites at Samsung's booth this year are a 105-inch Ultra Widescreen (21:9) Ultra HD TV and a bendable 85-inch Ultra HD TV.

Philips Rethinks Fidelio and Strengthens its Surround Base at CES

Philips has taken the complications out of floating satellite speakers, with its newly announced E-Series Home Cinema Audio System. As part of the company's Fidelio line, these removable satellites magnetically attach to a bookshelf pair, instantly turning the 3.1 system into 5.1 surround sound. The consumer electronics manufacturer also debuted a soundbar capable of supporting a 55-inch TV's weight.
Fidelio Rethought
Building on the Fidelio HTL9100 Soundbar that was introduced at CES last year, Philips introduced the E5 (CSS7235Y) at the 2014 International CES. The original soundbar had two satellites that charged on the bar, then detached for placing around the room for surround sound. The new E5 system is more versatile, and has a stylized look that will fit into even some smaller home theater setups.

Sony Shows Off 9 New BRAVIA HDTVs for 2014

The new TVs are almost here! Sony Electronics was one of the many manufacturers showing off sets for 2014 this week. The company is planning to have a hearty collection of Ultra HD TVs this year. However, they certainly haven't forgotten all of the customers that just want a really nice 1080p HDTV.
Sony plans to release a total of nine HD sets under its BRAVIA Series, with sizes ranging from 40 to 70 inches.

The Best Video Games of 2013

A lot of video gamers were probably looking forward to finding a shiny new Sony PlayStation 4 or a Microsoft Xbox One under the tree last year. If Santa failed to deliver, don't be discouraged. The truth is that while each of those new systems do have some games worth playing, the really big games of 2013 will run just fine on Sony's PlayStation 3 and Microsoft's Xbox 360.
In fact, it's likely that gamers won't see the truly must-have titles appearing exclusively on the next-generation consoles until the 2014 holiday season.

Sharp's AQUOS Quattron+ TV Pumps Up Image with the Power of Sub-Pixels

While a lot of TV manufacturers are very focused on Ultra HD TV this week and all of the detailed goodness brought to the table by those extra pixels, Sharp Electronics has come to CES 2014 packing extra sub-pixels. "Huh?" you may say? And for good reason.
A pixel (or picture element) is a single dot in what makes up a picture. 1080p TVs have roughly 2 million pixels (1920 pixels wide by 1080 pixels high). But inside each of these pixels are tiny sub-pixels, kind of like atoms making up a molecule... only different. On most LCD and LED/LCD TVs, you have three sub-pixels: one red, one green, and one blue. Turn them all on at the same time at the same brightness and you'll get white. Turn them all off, you get black. Mix them together in varying intensities to get all those other colors.

Sony Unveils Ultra HD TVs from 49 to 85 Inches

There were a lot of Ultra HD TVs on display at this week's CES. While everyone was talking up the sets, Sony Electronics was really focused on the content.
Oh sure, Sony will absolutely have plenty of UHD TVs for the year. However, the company is actually giving its customers plenty of 4K content options as well -- and that's huge. The previously announced 4K Ultra HD Media Player is still alive, well, and constantly being updated. The player delivers access to Sony's Video Unlimited 4K download service, which the company will beef up with plenty of new titles. Currently, Video Unlimited 4K has 140 films and TV shows. Upcoming 4K titles will include Captain Phillips and American Hustle, with select purchases adding in an UltraViolent Digital Copy of the film for viewing in HD and standard definition almost anywhere.

Ultra HD TV - More Than Just Pixels, 4K Blu-ray Coming This Year?

Without a doubt, the topic of Ultra HD TV dominated this year's CES 2014. There were sets, demos, and more sets. There were even affordable sets. Also, companies such as Sony, Netflix and Amazon talked up plans of delivering new 4K content this year.
However, there's so much more work to be done in the Ultra HD TV realm.

VIZIO Unveils Full Line of Ultra HD TVs, Starting at $999 for 50-inch Model (P502ui-B1)

VIZIO is the latest to announce new Ultra HD TVs for 2014 and they've actually included prices -- affordable ones! The company is getting competitve, with the newly announced P-Series Ultra HD Full-Array LED Smart TV collection.
All five of the new TVs promise eye-popping Ultra HD images at unprecedented prices. The line will start at $999.99 for the 50-inch P502ui-B1 and go up to $2599.99 for the 70-inch P702ui-B3.
